This August: New Aqua Rouge
Calling all lip color addicts. MAKE UP FOR EVER is adding another make up bag must-have to its award winning Aqua range – Aqua Rouge. This new collection of smudge-proof, high-impact liquid lip color delivers the intensity and long-lasting coverage of a lip stain, with the eye-catching shine of a gloss.
Gina Brooke, Madonna’s longtime make up artist, has collaborated with MAKE UP FOR EVER to create the official lip color for the Material Girl’s highly anticipated MDNA tour — new Aqua Rouge #8 in an iconic shade of red. Brooke, a beauty expert in her own right whose work has appeared in every major fashion magazine, approached MAKE UP FOR EVER after falling in love with their Aqua Rouge collection for fall 2012. Together, MAKE FOR EVER and Brooke created the ideal shade of red lip color for the tour.
Available in 12 shades from soft beiges to bold berries, Aqua Rouge’s double-ended tube provides highly pigmented color in two simple steps: first apply your favorite opaque shade using the applicator, and then top with the transparent gloss for a lacquered finish. Aqua Rouge was created for professional make up artists working backstage and on-set who desire products that need minimal touch ups.
Aqua Rouge provides waterproof, kiss-proof color that will not transfer. A combination of high molecular weight polymers and volatile oils lock color on the lips and provide full coverage, to guarantee ultra-long wear. The formula also boasts mica for intense color payoff, and a gelling agent for comfortable and effortless wear.
