Your lips are going to love you for this one. I know I’m not alone in being excited by the new Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge lipstick collectio ($27 CAD ea); first of all, MUFE is king when it comes to colour, and this 45 shade collection is no exception. Secondly, they know what they’re doing when it comes to creating artist-quality product, as we’ve seen over the years.
As mentioned, the curated collection features 45 gorgeous shades (31 creams and 14 mattes), which cover a full range of nudes, reds, pinks, berry and, in true Make Up For Ever fashion, a selection of artistic shades (including blues, pastels shades, and darks).
The pointed teardrop applicator makes precise application easy, which is a good thing as there isn’t a lot of room for mistakes. These lipsticks are fully opaque and very pigmented, which means you get full colour – perfect for a lipstick fanatic. The formula for both the creams and mattes are smooth, non-drying and long-lasting; once they’re on, they’ll last for about 8-10 hours before you need to reapply, though you will have some transfer.
To make things easier, they’ve also pulled the perfect shades for each skin tone (a nude, red, pink, berry and artistic – each listed in that order):
- Light: M100, C404, C205, M102, C603
- Medium: C105, C405, M202, M501, C304
- Tan: M101, M401, C206, M500, C502
- Dark: C107, M402, C207, C506, C600, C503
They’ve also created C211, a universally flattering rosy shade.
