I don’t know if its just me, but in my experience there is no such thing as a long wearing lipstick. I mean obviously there are some that last a lot longer than others, and some that wear off in a more desirable pattern than others, but nothing really wears like iron for me. I usually end up looking like a drank my weight in red cool aid within 3-4 hours. Am I the only one with this issue?? Maybe it’s a body chemistry thing, or maybe other people just don’t eat or drink after they put on lipstick.
As I’m sure you all know deep red lips are SO IN this fall, and being that I’m a sucker for bold lipstick and also for anything burgundy I had to find a way to make this work for me. So last week I picked up a tube of the new Make Up Forever Aqua Rouge lipstick in “Dark Raspberry” and I’m in looooove! In my experience MUFE is the benchmark when it comes to long lasting and waterproof. I went swimming in their brow corrector and it didn’t budge (don’t judge me, nobody wants to swim with jacked up eyebrows, come on!). Lets be real, this is not on my eyebrows, it goes on my lips where I put greasy foods and hot caffeinated beverages all day long. It didn’t stay 100% perfect all day, or even all night, but after 4 and a half hours and eating and drinking it was still decent enough that I felt presentable in public.
I applied it over Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion, which I felt really helped it go on evenly. When I first swatched it on my bare lips it looked a bit patchy, but that is the case with most color stay lipsticks.
This is how it looked freshly applied.
