Gina Brooke, the personal Make up Artist of… Madonna!, collaborated with Make Up For Ever to create a special new lipstick for Madonna’s MDNA tour.
Called Aqua Rouge #8, the lipstick has a very special liquid texture, which makes it easy to apply, gives the shine of a gloss (thanks to its high pigmentation) but has a special long-lasting wear which makes it ultra-resistant and is hence, smudge-proof, sweat-proof, dance-proof and.. kiss-proof! ;)
“The most important thing when looking for a lipstick is to find a reliable shade that lasts” explained Gina Brooke.
Having tried it myself, I can tell you that it is indeed incredibly resistant. This is a picture of what stayed on my hand after a whole day at 43 degree, putting my hand in my pockets and wasking my hands several times!
Although the color has been specifically designed for Madonna, Aqua Rouge #8 is a true, classic red that brightens up and is wonderful on any skin tones.
If however you prefer other colours, Aqua Rouge #8 is actually just one particular colour of the new Aqua Rouge Fall 2012 Collection which Make Up For Ever will be launching in September but 11 other colours exist.
In addition to Aqua Rouge #8, Gina also used Aqua Shadow #0E in black for Madonna. The jumbo eye shadow pencil can be applied in seconds and requires minimal to no touch ups, even after rigorous dancing and hot stage lights.
Here again, several other colours of Aqua Shadow exist too.
