I made a stop at the Make Up For Ever Pro Store a few days ago and completely skipped over the Aqua Rouge Lip Sticks. Most of my work now days is in bridal so when I head about these after the fact I was super excited!

Do any of you use Aqua Rouge on your brides?

I'm thinking about possibly ordering the whole line for bridal and then just giving the bride a tube of clear gloss to re-apply over during the day since from what I have read the actual color does not need re-applying just the clear gloss. I get a good discount on all Make Up For Ever products so price doesn't factor in.

Any other all day lipsticks I should look at?

I have been using the Stila ones since April of this year.  I've tried YSL, MUFE & the few MAC have.  I still love my Stila ones best.  They are so creamy soft and once they set (mere minutes), they are not budging with zero stickiness.
They offer a great color selection but I just adore their price point. 

Example here is a set (yes smaller than the fuller original size when in the set) but for only $32 for 4 of them!  Great way to start the collection.  Trust me, you do not need much.  Also, Stila has a pro program that is pretty easy to join -40% off!  Hello...

But be sure to check out the full size singles for the rest of the colors too. 

Side thought.  You could buy the already inexpensive sets at an additional 40% off w/ pro and then sell them to the brides for their little "wedding day" kit. The sets will give you the better markup ability and the smaller size is actually better for the brides.  Win win.

Edit:  just noticed I cannot find the liquid lip color range (outside of the set) on Stila.com .  However, Sephora does have the full range (which is a lot more colors than just 2 months ago.  Not sure why.  Anyway....

I used MAC because everyone I have worked on seems to be familiar with the brand, also with the pro discount I can give away a tube for the bridal kit.

I use doe foot applicators that I order in the 100's when I apply any kind of gloss they are thrown away each time.

I typically give each of my brides a full size lipstick in their color choice but if I were using these I would only give them a clear gloss since the color from everything I have read in reviews does not wear off just the gloss.
