Grab it while it’s hot! MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultimate Long Lasting Lip Set at Sephora

Friends don’t let friends miss out on a great sale. I was casually looking through Sephora the other day while planning out how to spend my $15 of $50 gift card. Here it is; the sale: MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultimate Long Lasting Lip Set is on sale at Sephora right meow! It now sells for $118, marked down from $168. That’s 30% off. Chhhyyyeah, that’s a good deal.

So. I’m sitting here with lips that are slightly raw after swatching six pairs of the most long lasting lip liners and lipsticks on Earth. This is how much I love you guys! ;) Read on to see the shades in action.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip in 8C and Aqua Rouge in 8. Classic vibrant red. Universally flattering and teeth whitening!

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip in 2C and Aqua Rouge in 2. Deep plummy rose. Not my favourite on me, but this would be a great starter bold lip for cool skin tones.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip in 14C and Aqua Rouge in 14. Medium brown. The liner actually leans more rose-y and is super pretty, but the lipstick is straight up brown. Great nude for darker skin tones, but everyone else might not like it.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip in 10C and Aqua Rouge in 10. Vibrant berry. Soooo sassy! Makes me feel like I’m a flapper from the ’20s. I love this one!

Aqua Lip in 16C and Aqua Rouge in 16. Bright fuchsia. My favourite of the bunch. Brightens the face and teeth like no other.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip in 18C and Aqua Rouge in 18. Vibrant coral. So neon! I built it up here to the max, but I like to wear this with a sheer application like I wore here this past summer.

You might be asking: do I really need the lip liners that match the lipsticks if they are so long-wearing? My answer is yes. These lipsticks are tricky to apply cleanly inside my lip lines.

Have you spent your Beauty Insider / VIB gift card yet? What did you buy? I’m thinking of picking up another shade of my beloved NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($30), and something else. Maybe Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Bourbon ($23). I don’t know… I keep going back and forth. Difficult decisions, I know. :P

    Oh that red is PERFECT on you! I love the Fuchsia and Coral as well, but not really the more toned-down shades. I really have to pick one of these up at some point just to see how the formula works!

      Hi Sunny! Try the fuchsia. It’s so opaque and gorgeous. :)

    I want this set SO bad! It looks fabulous on you! I only recently tried the magic that is Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge and now I know the hype is all that and more – I have never worn such a comfortable long wearing lip color in my life! I am so tempted by this set – eek! Great review and lip-swatching – you make each one look delicious! :D

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca/ Arianne

      Thanks Angie! The red and fuchsia are must-haves! :)

    hey Arianne, i Just read this with Erik in my lap. Apparently he loves your smile…. he’s been smiling and laughing at your pictures the whole time! Also thank you for swatching these….been dying to see how a few of these colours look on! Raspberry is beautiful.

      Aww little buddy likes pretty girls LOL! So cute!!!

  • Lily

    Love Raspberry on you! I have yet to try these… I don’t really care for the long wearing part, unless I’m going out for a dinner where touch ups are a pain (I seldom do!), and I actually like reapplying lipsticks. Lets me get through them faster. LOL!
