Lipstick Diary: What We Wore That Day

Beautygeeks_Janine Falcon_Liza-LEEZA-Herz_Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge lip in 8 Iconic RedIf you’re still looking for a perfectly gorgeous red lip colour, I’m sorry — I could have ended your search ages ago with this post. Meet a universally flattering red that strikes an ideal balance between warm and cool, which makes it a match for any skin tone in any season. See how it works for Liza and me? (It would be hawt on Cranky Beautypants, too.) And it’s just bright enough that it won’t make thin lips look small.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge Iconic RedThis is Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in 8 Iconic Red ($29,, a long-wearing shade created by celebrity makeup artist Gina Brooke for one of her highest profile clients, Madonna. We suggested it as a good match for Madonna’s Truth or Dare perfume in this perfume + lip colour piece; thought it might help to see it in play.

Do you already wear red? Or are you about to start — with this one?

Pretty ladies – s’prolly on account of the ‘spensive lipstick!

*giggle* Could be, You, could be :-)

The lipstick is a big part of it.

And my proximity to the lovely BeautyGeek en Chef helps too. I like to use her inner glow as my key light.

Babes! Seriously.

Luv that colour! Does it have that dry-peel-your-lips-off feel like so many long wear lippies?
You should do a post on what shades make thin lips look smaller…I’m sure I own a few in my “try to find the perfect red” lip basket!

I can’t speak for Liza, but I found it pretty comfortable, Lisa :-).

Re: a post on what shades make thin lips smaller, I’ll consider one. It would be a short post, because really, it’s dark shades that make lips look smaller. And by dark I mean dark red, dark plum, dark violet, dark brown. Bright versions of these colours (except brown — hard to make that one bright) are great — here’s an example of a rich, deep yet bright red :-)
