Basically, I'm obsessed. I've worn this on two occasions where I needed long-lasting lip color, and this certainly delivered it. This is going to sound totally weird and creepy, but after applying the gloss on top of the lip color, I kind of wanted to eat my lips. My lips looked straight up juicy! And I mean that in the best way possible. This shade of red is the PERFECT color for me, and I have gotten SO many compliments on the lip color. I don't apply lip liner with it, and it lasted me for over 8 hours, with absolutely no budging. I've worn this to a nautical-themed baby shower and a concert, and this lip color was just complete perfection the whole time. The only kind-of issue with it is after the gloss wears off, my lips felt kind of sticky from the stain. You just have to touch up frequently with the gloss. But other than that, no issues over here!
I do, however, wish this came in a larger variety of colors. I am so infatuated with this product, but I wish it came in a hot pink or even a deep plum/berry color. I'm hoping that since this product is still so new, Make Up For Ever will continue to add more colors to the Aqua Rouge line. Although this product is expensive, like most Make Up For Ever products, it is extremely long-lasting and is definitely a quality product. If you get a chance, check them out at your local Sephora and be prepared to be WOW'ed.
