Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge Waterproof Liquid Lip Color in Soft Pink

Have you ever heard of Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge lipsticks? They are amazing if you need something that will last all day! I like these a lot, so when I learned that MUFE released a new shade in their 2013 Holiday collection, Midnight Glow, I was very excited to try it!

Soft Pink is a cool toned brownish pink, if that make sense. Right now my MAC foundation shade is NC37, while it look like a nude pink on me, on lighter complexions it will look more brown.  I didn't like it when I tried it on my pale skin, right before my tanning session (self-tanner, don't worry!).

The color side is very easy to apply, it goes on smoothly and isn't streaky at all. It dries quite fast too, compared to the other shades, but strangely enough I still had enough time to apply it since it's so smooth. The formula on the color side is perfect!

The topcoat, on the other hand.. I didn't care much for it. It's very thick and sticky, much more than the regular topcoat, and I have a hard time spreading it on my lips. I also think it would be more beautiful with less shimmers because it does look a bit frosty if I apply too much.. and since it's so thick, it's hard to apply a very thing layer.

Like the others shades I've tried, Soft Pink doesn't feather around the lips, doesn't leave lipstick marks on drinking cups (you will see the shimmers though), and never stain the teeth. It lasts a good 6 hours, but I need to reapply the topcoat during the day. You can remove it quite easily with a cleansing oil (or good ol' olive oil!). However, that will also mean that if you eat something very greasy, it will come off.

I liked the idea of a shimmery topcoat but it didn't live up to my expectations, I like the texture of the original top coat formula so I'm not sure why this one is so different. I would recommend that you test it in store if you aren't sure to like the texture.

The Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge Waterproof Liquid Lip Color in Soft Pink retail for $29 CDN.
