Lipstick & Moon Trips

As I've said many a time:  how is it we can send a man to the moon, but we can't make a lipstick that stays put and looks good?  Well someone at Make Up For Ever must be a rocket scientist, because they've finally done it with Aqua Rouge.  Their new "liquid lip color" goes on creamy, like a gloss, dries matte and you then use the brush at the other end of the stick to swipe on shine.  The color stays on so long and true I've actually had to use makeup remover at the end of the night to get it off.  Miraculous, since usually a few moments after applying lipstick it's coming off on a napkin, a glass, my teeth.  My experiment with the product began boldly, with color No. 8, a truly vivid Iconic Red, and I returned to Sephora (the exclusive retailer of MUFE) a few days later to add No.10, a pretty Raspberry, to my cosmetic bag.
