Round-up: Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick | Top 25 Shades+ Overview

Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipsticks
Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be long-wearing, “extremely pigmented,” and hydrating. It is available in two finishes–Cream and Matte, indicated by the C or M in the beginning of each shade’s name. The Cream formula is richly pigmented, lightly creamy without being too emollient or slippery, and go on smoothly and feel good while worn (wear ranges from four to eight hours, depending on the shade). The Matte formula is thinner and clings somewhat to lips, though it goes on nicely and doesn’t tug, and it doesn’t always look flattering on as it can emphasize imperfections on my lips but really depends on the shade, as some look great on. I found the Cream formula to be moderately hydrating, while the Matte formula was slightly to moderately drying. All shades had a slight, rosy scent to them, though I didn’t notice any taste.

I’ve now finished reviewing all of the shades! Hurray! Here are the top 25 of the range, but you can see the full list here. I was impressed with the range overall, and I liked that they had both more typically wearable shades as well as non-traditional colors. If you’ve tried the formula, I hope you’ll consider writing a review or quickly rating your experience as a reader! 🙂

Make Up For Ever C406, C407, C502 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C406 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark red with warm, brown undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was creamy, lightweight, and very smooth, which resulted in even, nearly opaque pigmentation that was comfortable to wear. It stayed in place for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Guerlain Luxure (P, $49.50) is darker (95% similar). NARS Fire Down Below (P, $28.00) is less glossy (95% similar). MAC Retro Rouge (LE, $18.00) is warmer (95% similar). Guerlain Habit Rouge (P, $37.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is brighter (95% similar).

Make Up For Ever C403, C404, C405 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C403 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented and had full color coverage after one stroke. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy with enough give to apply without tugging but did not slide around at all–it was less emollient than other shades in the range. It felt like a cross between the Cream and Matte formulas, actually. On me, the color wore well for over six hours and left a stain behind, and the formula felt lightly moisturizing. Bite Beauty Persimmon (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Tarte Mai Tai (P, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Sail La Vie (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Bite Beauty Marmalade (LE, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). Estee Lauder Chilean Sunset (LE, $45.00) is cooler (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Tell Laura (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Habanero (LE, $21.00) is glossier (95% similar). Estee Lauder Volatile (P, $30.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M300 (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). NARS Marlene (P, $32.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty Cayenne (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Strange Journey (LE, $17.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Lobster (LE, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Psycho (P, $18.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop First Class (DC, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Rouge Feu (57) (P, $36.00) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Bang (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Sunset Orange (P, $35.00) is glossier (90% similar).

Make Up For Ever C304, C305, C306 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C304 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bold, bright, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a creamy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation–you can see my lip freckle peeking through the color–and I think this was the result of the consistency being more emollient than other shades, so it didn’t cover as well. There was very subtle streaking, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance (only in the close-up photo). This shade wore well for five and a half hours, left behind a reddish stain, and was nicely hydrating. MAC Fashion Nomad (LE, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Bang (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Clementine (LE, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Warmed Maple (LE, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty #008 (LE, $36.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Dior Trafalgar (844) (P, $34.00) is darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Atomic Orange (P, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Neon Orange (P, $17.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). MAC So Chaud (P, $17.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (90% similar). Illamasqua Soaked (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). Inglot #103 Lipstick Cream (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Lana (P, $32.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Milani Sweet Nectar (P, $5.49) is lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Lady Ruba (P, $26.00) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). MAC Morange (P, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M300 (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (80% similar). Tarte Mai Tai (P, $22.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy (80% similar). MAC Love Feeling (LE, $20.00) is lighter, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever C106 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, natural finish.
