I have been reading so many amazing reviews and seen so many gorgeous swatches of the new MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadows, that I was incredibly excited when I had the chance to try out two shades handpicked for me. I received the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadow in D640* and M660*, which are two brown neutrals that are unique enough to be completely original in my collection. But did they live up to the hype?
My MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadow Duo contains two shades. The first one is M660–also known as Speculous, as it turns out these do have shade names as well as numbers. It’s a very creamy matte milk chocolate brown with orange undertones. The shade on the right is D640 Golden Snake, which is a diamond finish and a very sparkly mid-brown shadow with gold glitter. It is so creamy and gorgeous! Both shadows are very soft but not powdery, and have an almost slightly gel-like consistency, with D640 being slightly smoother. Like all shadows, be careful with your fingernails, as I sadly dented one of mine not long after getting it.
I actually wasn’t sure how well the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadow in D640 and M660 would go together, but they do work and D640 in particular helps bring out the green in my hazel eyes. I used the matte shade all over the lid, and then added the sparkle to the outer half. The lasting power on both shades was fantastic! They still look amazing at the end of the day.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadow in D640 and M660 are just two of the 210 shades available, but if they provide an example of what the shadows are like, I definitely want more! They can be purchased in singles, duos, or trios, with a slight discount for larger sizes. The palette itself is very simple and small, and I believe it only costs a dollar when buying the shadows. The shadows are also magnetic and easy to depot for your own magnetic palette as well.
