There are plenty of great red lipsticks out there, but when celebrity makeup artist Gina Brooke needed one that would last through outdoor concerts in steamy locations like Abu Dhabi and Israel, she consulted Make Up For Ever. And since the client in question happened to be Madonna (yes, the Madonna -- Brooke's been working with her for 10 years), it only made sense to develop a special color just for her: Aqua Rouge #8, $24.
"I wanted a shade that would work on everyone," says Brooke. "Not only does Madonna wear it, so do all of her dancers. It's flattering on every skin tone." The red is a true, classic red without blue or orange undertones. The formulation is amazing: It's a liquid lipstick that dries to a velvety stain. And, as an added bonus, it's double-sided with the pigment on one end and a moisturizing clear gloss on the other.
Aqua Rouge #8 -- along with the rest of Make Up For Ever's fall collection -- launched yesterday. So if you want to try the look from the Material Girl's MDNA tour -- or you've been searching for an awesome red lipstick that lasts all day -- you can order it now.
