Madonna's make up artist, Gina Brooke was in town recently to introduce the latest edition to the Make Up For Ever Aqua line - Aqua Rouge Waterproof Liquid Lip Color - $27 - in 12 shades: 1 Nude Beige; 2 Rosewood; 4 Chestnut; 5 Beige Brown; 7 Pink Brown; 8 Iconic Red; 9 Burgundy; 10 Raspberry; 11 Dark Raspberry; 13 Purple; 14 Light Rosewood; and 15 Pink - in particular, she was excited to present her collaboration with the line and the official lip colour for Madonna's MDNA tour which is, no surprise #8 Iconic Red!
#8 Iconic Red was born from Gina's desire to come up with a perfect, pure red lip colour that would exude confidence and beauty. She thinks the shade looks iconic, hence the name and the perfect word to define Madonna and her career. #8 is a true, classic red that brightens the entire face and is universally flattering on all skin tones. As with all of the shades in the new range, it's a high-impact liquid lip colour that delivers the intensity and long-lasting coverage of a lip stain, with the eye-catching shine of a gloss. It offers high pigmentation and is smudge-proof, sweat-proof and most importantly (especially if you are Madonna) dance-proof!
And if it's Madonna approved, you know it has to be good stuff - that lady does not strike me as someone to suffer fools (or bad lipstick) lightly!
Available now at Sephora stores and Make Up For Ever boutiques across Canada.
Lisamarie - the happiest day of my life was the day Sephora opened it's first store in Canada (thankfully in Toronto), second happiest day was before this when Sephora finally started shipping to Canada, third I guess would be my wedding day (but don't tell my husband where he ranks please!)
*** Christelle - I enjoy shoe shopping and drinking martinis...preferably at the same time!
