MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultimate Long Lasting Lip Set - Review

I'm a little bit late to the party on this one, but at least now I've got a chance to test this one.

As you can see, I love Makeup Forever product so much. I've seen this lip stain before, but this thing kind of expensive, that's why I need some time to think. Then this set came out, 6 lip colour, and 6 lip liner. How could I say no... after all I got 20% discount as well LOL

They are beautiful rite? For some people, this collection is the best way to complete your lip wardrobe, for me.. I don't use makeup everyday, but this matching lip liner and lip colour can help me to make a good photography.

A LIQUID LIP COLOUR that provides the INTENSE and LONG LASTING hold of a LIP STAIN with the eye-catching shine of a gloss. That's how SEPHORA explained.

It contains:

    - 8 (Iconic Red)
    - 8C Red (True red)
    - 2 (Rose wood)
    - 2C Rose wood (Rossy nude)
    - 14 (Light Rosewood)
    - 14C Light rosewood (muted dusty rose)
    - 10 (Raspberry)
    - 10C Raspberry (deep very plum)
    - 16 (Fuschia)
    - 16C Fuschia (Bright Fuchsia pink)
    - 18 (Coral)
    - 18C Coral (Bright pink coral)

My favourite is Coral, because it has a peach to orange colour, and you just can't go wrong with that colour. 

About the Aqua rouge, this thing really loves to hold on your lips for a day! If you are looking for a LONG LASTING lip colour, you really should try this one. I recommend you to use lip balm before apply the colour, because it doesn't work so well on dry lips. The INTENSE of the colour is the thing you won't doubt, but the formula is kind of sticky. some people won't like it, But it does't bother me that much. 

If you just put on the colour without the glosses it will shows a matte lip colour, but if you like a glossy one, you can use the clear gloss at the other side. For me, I prefer matte. 
After the colour dry (Which just take around 1 minute or less) it will stick on your lips FOREVER... Okay it's too much. But, as I used this colour, I never find it gone even though I eat, drink, lick my lips, etc.. I found the gloss is gone, but not the colour. So, I think you don't need to re-apply the colour for a day. (EXCEPT you usually bite your dry lips and pull out your dry skin, it MIGHT be gone.. I never try it)

About the Aqua lip, the texture was great. It's creamy, long lasting, waterproof, smudge proof, and intense. I like it. I can't say too much about this one. I tried some lip liner before, and if you are looking for waterproof lip liner, you should try this one. It wasn't bad, it's pretty great.

So.. let see the swatches

From left to right
8,8C ; 2,2C ; 14,14C ; 10,10C ; 16,16C ; 18,18C

- 6 Full size liquid lip colours and 6 Matching lip liners

- Long lasting

If you're in Indonesia, you can check Makeup Forever Facebook or just go to the nearest boutique to ask about this product :)

I will recommend this product to my friend

For me it's 8.5 out of 10. I just hope it would be cheaper. Oh! I almost forgot, this lip colour wasn't smelly instead it smells GOOD!

My advise is to be careful when using this lip colour because of the LONG LASTING formula. If you don't have a makeup remover and you put the colour wrong, it's really hard to remove. Also, if you want to use bright colour, like red, fuchsia, and coral I recommend you to use lip brush, because the colour is way too intense if you use the brush from the tube. Things that I don't like about the lip colour was the brush, it wasn't good enough.

Hope you like it!
and... I'm thinking about making 6 looks with this 6 amazing colour. Included fashion and makeup.. what do you think ? Which colour should I start with? :D



  1. The colours are so pretty but the price is also pretty T_T I do love the red and coral! Does the gloss feel sticky?
    Start with the Iconic Red! The red looks super fierce but classy-elegant at the same time <3

    1. But it's "cheap" compare to buying one by one :D If you are applied the lip gloss, the stickiness is getting better :D
      ah.. right :D as you wish :D I will start with the red one :D wait for my post dear

  2. Beautiful packaging! I want to collect all shades. :D
