Some people go to the store to buy lipstick. Madonna, on the other hand, gets a shade custom-made for her by the geniuses over at Make Up For Ever. The high-pigment red gloss, which currently has the name Aqua Rouge #8, was made for Madonna's MDNA world tour with the help of her personal makeup artist Gina Brooke. The lipstick will go on sale for non-celebrities in September, although it will hopefully have a somewhat cooler name by then.
