The weather may be one way to tell that it’s finally summer, but the debut of bright new makeup colours is certainly our favourite sign! Make Up For Ever has announced a new range of summer colours for their popular waterproof Aqua line—just in time for sweaty temperatures or days spent by the pool. The new colours include five Aqua Rouge lip shades, two Aqua Lip pencils, three pastel Aqua Cream pigments and two new Aqua Eyes pencils. And because the season is all about bright, sunny shades, the Make Up For Ever Aqua summer collection is full of vibrant colours. (If you’re ready to bring out your inner seapunk, this collection is for you!)

While we’re tempted by all the new colours, it’s the updated Aqua Rouge colours that have us most excited. What’s summer without the perfect statement lip? After a winter spent obsessing over the darker Aqua Rouge shades (like this perfect red, created for Madonna no less!) we’re more than ready for the new summer shades. They range from pastel-pink (“#20”) to fuchsia (“#16”) to an over-the-top orange (“#17”) and one thing’s certain: the new Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge shades are sure to brighten up any summer outfit. These kiss/water/smudge/sweat proof lip colours will withstand anything, meaning you can take your daytime look right into the evening without having to worry about touch ups. Same goes for the rest of the Aqua collection: this heavily-pigmented makeup will last you throughout the hottest of days. Ready to scoop it up? The Make Up For Ever Aqua summer collection will be available at Sephora and Make Up For Ever boutiques starting this month.
