Aqua Rouge #8 MDNA Official Color

what do Madonna and i have in common? well, besides our lipsticks not much else. but can we all agree it is a pretty great lipstick? [not to mention an awesome picture of my lips. courtesy of a great camera angle]

created by Madonna's makeup artist, Gina Brooke, Aqua Rouge #8 is the official lip color for the MDNA tour. together Brooke and Make Up For Ever created this universally flattering classic red. 

Aqua Rouge is a new lip color collection that Make Up For Ever is launching September 2012. it is a lip stain paired with a gloss that is smudge proof, sweat proof and while you may not be able to tell from the picture above, pool proof. i wore this through the pool, lunch and dinner only needing a few minor touch ups. impressive.

i was lucky enough to sample Aqua Rouge #8, and while Madonna has no idea who i am, i felt a little closer to the Material Girl. this color claims to be universally flattering and a bold red lip is typically NOT my style but i think i can pull this one off. if you are like a virgin - pun intended - to red lip color, this is your starting point.

reader poll: would you give this shade of red a try?



  1. What a gorgeous color. I don't wear bright red lip colors often, but this looks so fab and luscious!

  2. impressed with the description and how long you said it lasted. Not sure if I could pull off the red, but I would definitely try it in a more subtle color.

    1. Kamaile, go for red! Such a fun color for fall :)
