World, ORANGE IS THE BEST RED!

First, after foundation, I mixed in a touch of this bright orange/golden shimmer Aqua Cream with what product remained on my hand and blended with my fingers onto the apples of my cheeks; the touch of similar color makes the lip a little less "Holy Smokes," I think.
Next I line my lips (after brushing my teeth of course) with Aqua Lip 17C; outline your lips first, then fill in the rest so there is no left over line as lipstick fades away. Liner is a good primer for what you put on top of it!

Next and last step is sweeping the very clingy-creamy Rouge Artist 40 over my lips. This lipstick is not drying but not very moisturizing, so prep lips the night before or you'll have some flaky/cracking issues. This is another reason that this is the end of my orange lip season, because after today, my lips may not be in shape for such a high-maintenance lip.

Since I drink so much water during the day, I had to reapply every 3-4 hours, touching up the middle and checking my teeth regularly for orange marks. Rouge Artist lipstick is so pigmented that it will stain and stay on your lips but will also show up on whatever you're drinking from. Blotting...helps a little, but the drying problem becomes worse when you do that.MUFE's website and Sephora.com.
