MAKEUP FOREVER’s Aqua Rouge are some of my fave long-wearing lippies and they just came out with this super bright one as part of their Summer 2013 Collection, #16 Fuschia. If you like ‘em bright, this is one to check out.
Browsing Make Up For Ever
Have you ever been scared of a beauty product? I mean, you look at it and have no idea how to use it. That’s what happened when I looked at MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Aqua Brow. I must have picked it up and looked at it about a dozen times before actually trying it out. What’s been wrong with me??! I guess I just wasn’t ready to experience this product.
Anyway, this Aqua Brow is a highly pigmented liquid that is for filling in areas of the brow and also to help lengthen and define them. I love how long it lasts and I’m able to get a more realistic look using this with a slanted small brush than with a pencil.
Available in Light Blonde, Blonde and Ash. I’m a dark brown and I’m using the Blonde and it works perfectly as I don’t want brows that are too dark.
$20 @ sephora.com.
The MAKE UP FOR EVER line of Fall 2012 products is not disappointing. Take this Black Tango Palette, for example, it was only a matter of time before they housed a few of the Aqua Cream Shadows in a palette and I am simply loving this one.
I figure the best way to highlight some of the fall products that are coming out/out already, I’d break it down by part, so let’s focus on the lips in this feature.
I think MAKE UP FOR EVER took a while to get on the “this lippie ain’t coming off until I take it off” bandwagon but they are officially on board with their new Aqua Rouge. It’s one of those color on one side and glossy-gloss on the other that lasts and lasts and last and I loved the two colors I tried shown here, #8 Iconic Red and #14 Light Rosewood.

I’m a big fan of the gel pot liners but was just waiting for one of the biggies to put them in a pencil form for those days when you are in a hurry. MAKE UP FOR EVER just came out with Aqua Shadows, which was debuted during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2011. And these people mean quick and easy so you know these have to be! Simply apply and let set for 5 seconds and you’re ready for the world.
It’s infused with silica powder, which helps it apply smoothly and without cracking or creasing. Right now they have 6 matte finishes, which are all on the dark side and then 7 with a pearly finish. I’m sure these will do well for the line and they will put all the pot ones in this stick form. $20 @ sephora.com.
How often do you rock extreme eye or lip colors? I seem especially drawn to them around this time of year. Here are two that will give your features some WOW from the MAKE UP FOR EVER line, and don't be too scary, both are totally wearable.
Aqua Cream in #10, Orange, a golden tangerine sheen.
Rouge Artist Intense in #15 Purple, a pearly violet.
Both @ sephora.com.
I’m really into MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Aqua Eyes pencils. They’re waterproof and more importantly, fade proof. There is nothing worse than applying your liner, leaving for a night on the town, using the restroom as said location and half of it has done a disappearing act.
