Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette ($44.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes nine shades (all of the shades are also available individually in the permanent range). Two things worth noting: there are several repeats in this palette if you already own several of their past releases, and the amount of product in this is less than the last two volumes and $2 more. Oh, and there are, again, no matte shades. It’s such a shame that they’ve continued to repeat shades when they have 200+ shades in their range to choose from (see this sheet for repeats). If you haven’t picked up a lot of the brand’s palettes or singles previously, it IS a good palette overall — pigmented, long-wearing, and easy to use.

Make Up For Ever Artist Palettes – Repeats

One question I get asked when there’s a new Artist Palette is what the overlap is, which is definitely not something I can keep in my head any longer (too many releases!). I’ve created a spreadsheet that you can access below that shows the entire shade range along with palette releases to-date and what shades are where, along with how often certain shades have appeared. I have also included the year the palette was released.  For your reference, I’ve also included all shades that have appeared three times or more (at the time of publishing this post):

  1. I544 Pink Granite x5
  2. ME230 Peacock Blue x5
  3. ME512 Golden Beige x5
  4. D236 Lagoon Blue x4
  5. D652 Celestial Earth x4
  6. ME930 Black Purple x4
  7. D826 Fig x3
  8. D926 Blueberry x3
