Make Up For Ever 15 Artist Shadow Palette

Make Up For Ever 15 Artist Shadow Palette
Make Up For Ever 15 Artist Shadow Palette

Make Up For Ever Holiday 2015 15 Artist Shadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.90 oz.) includes fifteen of the brand’s Artist Shadows (all of which are permanent, so you can always purchase them individually or repurchase if you ever finish one). Each shade is 0.06 oz., whereas full-size is 0.08 oz., which makes the palette contain $236.25 worth of eyeshadows. Not only is a tremendous value for anyone who’s wanted to acquire more (or try for the first time) the Artist Shadows, but the palette is of excellent quality. Only two of the fifteen shades were under-performing, and only one of those two is a real miss to me. The only thing that puzzles me is that Make Up For Ever doesn’t include their matte formula in their palettes, because I think it’s quite good (overall) and certainly well-worth including for more versatility and dimension in their palettes–it is even more puzzling given that they’re a pro/artistry-driven brand, where mattes are often a go-to! Otherwise, I highly recommend and is definitely one of the best palettes I’ve tried all year.

I916 Frosted Mauve is a light, brighter lavender purple with cool undertones and a pearly shimmer. It had mostly opaque coverage with a soft texture, but this shade doesn’t apply as smoothly as others in the range. It looks almost dry when applied to the skin for me.

D830 Black Rose is a blackened brown with lighter violet shimmer and micro-sparkle. The pigmentation is off-the-charts, while the texture is very dense, thick, and almost more cream-like than powder-like. It looks and feels more like a powder as it is applied to the lid, though.

S228 Petrol Blue is a subdued, medium-dark bluish-teal with a semi-matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff, but it was weaker than the permanent version I have, though I found it to be buildable in two to three layers. The texture is smooth but thinner than a shade like D830 Black Rose. This one stains slightly without a good base underneath. The color wore well for eight and a half hours.

I922 Electric Purple is a bright, medium-dark violet purple with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It is actually a blush (you’ll notice it labeled as “blush” on the back of the palette as well), which is how I tested it for the review. It had intense color payoff with a smooth, dense texture that was blendable but took a little more patience than your average blush to blend out. It wore well for eight and a half hours.
