MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouge Lipstick in #2 Rosewood ~ Photos, Swatches, Review

Next up in my series of MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouge Waterproof Liquid Lip Color reviews is #2 Rosewood. You can look at my post of all eight shades of Aqua Rouge that I have to see comparison swatches. For my full review and thoughts on this truly outstanding formula please check out my review of #8 Iconic Red. I have also reviewed #15 Pink.
In my opinion #2 Rosewood doesn’t appear all that rosewood. The brown tones really come out against my cool, fair skin. Also worth noting is that I find #14 Light Rosewood to actually be a darker (and more rosewood) shade than #2 Rosewood.
I found if applied too heavily #2 Rosewood comes off a little too brown and dirty against my skintone. I find that a light application of this shade is best for me. Like #8 Iconic Red I do find this shade looks nice for a matte look without the topcoat.
With the topcoat the warm tones in the shade are enhanced further.
Overall I’m really happy with MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouge in #2 Rosewood. While it’s not the rosewood shade on me I was hoping for it is a lovely soft brown that is a welcome addition to my collection.

Available at Sephora and Make Up For Ever Boutiques.
