Make Up For Ever C205, C206, C207 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C205 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, light-medium cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy without being slippery, and forgiving on lips as it did not emphasize the natural texture of my lips. This shade lasted well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. Clinique Wow Pop (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Preston (LE, $35.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Cotton Candy (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar).

Make Up For Ever M202, M203, M204 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever M202 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium magenta pink with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a velvety texture that didn’t tug, but it seemed to emphasize the texture of my lips and did not apply as evenly as it should have (it’s not as obvious, since the color is bright). It lasted for six hours but was moderately drying on me. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Smashbox Talk to Me (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Melt Cosmetics Stupid Love (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Sephora Whipped Blush (LE, $14.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Tickler (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Make Up For Ever C208, C209, C210 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C208 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bold, bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The consistency was comfortable to wear, as it was lightly creamy but not overly slippery, so it sat well on the lips and didn’t slide around. This shade wore well for over six hours on me and left a stain behind. The formula was nicely hydrating. Smashbox Inspiration (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Romy (462) (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Bellini (LE, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Ultramarine Pink (LE, $30.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Make Up For Ever M300, M301, M401 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever M300 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bold, medium-dark orange-red with strong, warm red undertones and a matte finish. The texture had a velvety feeling to it, so it glided on with ease and did not tug on the lips during application. However, it was a bit thin and clingy, so it wasn’t the most flattering finish on the lips and tended to accentuate lines and imperfections. I highly recommend exfoliating prior to applying this shade. It had good pigmentation that wore well for six hours, but the formula was a bit drying. Charlotte Tilbury Tell Laura (P, $32.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Mimosa (LE, $24.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Barbecue (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Make Up For Ever C503, C506, C600 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C503 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright pop of medium lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a creamy finish with a light sheen. The texture was lightweight, moderately creamy with noticeable slip, but applied fairly evenly overall–though not as smoothly as other shades in the Cream range. This shade wore well nearly five hours but had some color settled into lip lines, though the formula was lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Vanity Kills (P, $17.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). MAC Courting Seduction (LE, $17.00) is more muted, warmer (85% similar). MAC Lavender Jade (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

Make Up For Ever C211, C302, C303 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C211 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a subdued, medium-dark rosy mauve with warm undertones and a satin finish. This shade had very nearly opaque pigmentation that applied beautifully–evenly, smoothly, and made lips appear plumper and healthier.
