Is there anything more exciting (or prettier) than a box of new lipsticks arriving in the mail? I think not, especially when they are the brand new MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipsticks!
The MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipsticks are available in 45 shades in both a cream and matte finish. I received 6 of the new, bold, pigmented shades to test out and wow are they gorgeous!
In terms of packaging, the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipsticks come in a sleek, heavy black bullet feels expensive. The packaging surprised me at first because it actually has no brand indication on the outside except for the MUFE “lip” logo on the top of the cap. However, when you remove the cap there is a hammered metal silver base that does have MAKE UP FOR EVER embossed on it.
Out of the shades I tried out from the new MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipsticks, 5 were cream finish and one was a matte, but what they all had in common was great pigmentation and a really comfortable finish. The bullet is a bit more pointed than an average lipstick, but I didn’t find it really made a difference for application. These shades are all ultra-creamy.
The MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick C105 is a pale peachy beige nude. The pigmentation is excellent but this shade was not flattering on my skintone. However, so many nudes are patchy and this one was definitely not!
The MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick C211 is a rosy brown described by MUFE as “universally beautiful on all skin tones” and I agree! I am just obsessed with this gorgeous neutral shade. It’s super flattering and just glides onto the lips.
The MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick M401 is a bold true red matte. The pigmentation on this shade is perfection which makes it easy to apply and it’s just so chic and classic. It’s also a “comfortable matte” but still has great wear.
The MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick C502 is a grey lavender cream. This is such an unusual shade and while it’s not one I’ll be wearing out of the house, it has a great formula for such a pale shade. I also passed it onto my more adventurous cousin, and she loves it!
The MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick C506 is a burgundy wine cream perfect for fall.
The MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick C603 is a dark blue with a hint of green to it. This is another very unusual shade but it still has a pretty good formula.
I absolutely love the new MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick formula. It’s pigmented and comfortable to wear. Plus, it’s so much fun to see MUFE include unusual shades in the lineup like lavender and navy, while still sticking with some flawless classics like a matte red and a universal rosy brown. My favourite is defintiely C211 but with 45 shades, there’s got to be one you’ll fall in love with too!
