Review & Swatches: MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip & Aqua Rouge in 16C, 8C, 2C, 10C, 14C, and 18C



MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultimate Long Lasting Lip

Before the holidays, I took advantage of the 20% off coupon for VIB's and did a big Sephora shop. One of the things that caught my eye was a massive set of lippies MAKE UP FOR EVER made available exclusively for the holidays. Normally, I'm somewhat cautious about buying large holiday sets with limited edition products, knowing that if I love them, I can never get them again. Luckily, MAKE UP FOR EVER's Ultimate Long Lasting Lip Set contains 12 products in 6 shades that are part of the permanent line - making the the perfect way to sample a slew of products and shades from a brand known for their phenomenal lasting power at a bargain price.

MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencils ($19) promise a long wear time with a buttery smooth texture (made possible with Vitamin E & Jojoba wax). Turns out, they do the job pretty well and manage to line and fill lips without tugging at lips and drying them out. While I wouldn't call them moisturizing, I got 4 hours of smooth wear with these alone!

MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Rouge Liquid Lip Colors ($24) are like liquid lipsticks that apply opaquely and dry thoroughly for ultra-long, smudge-proof wear. With a double-ended applicator, one end contains the colored product, while the other has a high-shine gloss. The lip color wore without fail for over 7 hours - even through eating and drinking. However, my main concern was the gloss. I've had similar products that perform well until the gloss is applied, and then the wear time decreases significantly. Not so with these! While the gloss needed some reapplication, my lip color didn't fade along with it. Again, these lip colors aren't moisturizing per se, but they definitely don't dehydrate lips or leave them feeling uncomfortable.

The shades in this set included 8C (Iconic Red - a true red), 14C (Light Rosewood - a muted dusty rose), 2C (Rosewood - a rosy nude), 10C (Raspberry - deep berry plum), 16C (Fuchsia - a bright fuchsia pink), and 18C (Coral - a bright pink coral). I wouldn't say you need both 14 and 2 as they are very similar when put to use. But whether it's a neutral shade or a bright, all of them are flawless in application.

If you're looking for a smooth, long-wearing lip liner, Aqua Lips are a great way to go. Aqua Rouge, on the other hand, are a must-have no matter who you are. They are by far the most long-wearing, durable lip colors I've ever used and come with a gloss to wear both flat and glossy. WIN! If you can find these in a set, don't think twice before buying it because they can be pricey individually. But if you find one shade that calls your name, it's absolutely worth the luxurious price tag.

What shade is your favorite?
