H108

Make Up For Ever H108 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) light yellow with a semi-matte finish. The color applied lighter than it appeared in the tube and with a stronger, truer yellow tone. It would likely be used more like banana powder, which can be used as a setting powder or to neutralize dark under eye circles.

I think if you want it for setting, you’d be better off with traditional loose banana powder, as the texture was dense and smooth but just doesn’t feel like the right type of texture to adequately set without going back for a lot of product. It might work for someone who only sets key areas, though, as it does allow for precision. I liked it for setting under eye concealer, and for the purposes of photos, I applied it more as a highlighter on my cheeks, and I thought it brightened nicely (but I am warmer-toned). It had excellent pigmentation with consistency that blended well but would be best used with a moderately dense brush. The color lasted well for eight and a half hours on me.

Overview of the Formula

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush). There are three finishes–matte, shimmer, and pearl but was less obvious. In fact, the majority of the “matte” shades were more like semi-matte or natural matte where there were no distinctive shimmer particles but they seemed to take on the natural finish of the skin, which gave the “mattes” a particularly seamless finish on the skin but might be dewier on oilier skin types than desired. None of the 34 shades available were frosted or metallic except three of the highlighters (H100, H106, H312).

The pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque, depending largely on the shade, though they were always buildable if they were not opaque in a single layer. Some of the deeper, more matte shades were less forgiving and took more effort to diffuse and blend, even when I used a lighter hand or a more feathery brush. The texture was smooth, velvety, and moderately dense without any powderiness or dustiness in the pan. The formula has lasted between eight and ten hours on me.

B500

Make Up For Ever B500 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a pinky plum with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had nearly full color payoff in a single layer, but the denser consistency made it easier to use it with a lighter hand as it did not have a bunch of powder that kicked up with use. The intensity of the shade did seem to lend to more difficulty blending it out, even when I used it with a lighter hand. It also seemed to darken slightly and appeared less rosy on me (almost cooler in tone after I blended it out).

I think it would take a few uses to find the balance in tool and pressure for easier blending. The denser texture of the formula does not work so well with really fluffy or airy brushes like a fan brush, and I found the best technique was a tapered highlighting brush and then lightly patting it along the cheek bone and using a clean, larger buffing brush to diffuse and blend. The color stayed on well for nine hours, though.

Overview of the Formula

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush).

S400

Make Up For Ever S400 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had the type of matte finish that seemed to take on the finish of the skin itself, so it appeared more like a “natural matte” to my eye than a flat matte finish. There was mostly opaque color payoff but was forgiving that it could be applied with a lighter hand or diffused a lot for sheerer coverage. The consistency was dense but smooth, blendable and worked best with a moderately dense blush or contour brush. It’s a sculpting shade but could surely be used as a blush if desired. The color lasted well for almost nine hours on me.

Overview of the Formula

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush).

H100

Make Up For Ever H100 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright ivory with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It appeared a bit darker in the pan than when swatched, where it had a starker, brighter look overall. It did apply noticeably on my skin, despite being so light, and it will appeal to those who prefer highlighting with matte to satin finishes over more shimmery ones that we have seen a lot of in the last year. I tried using it a few different times paired with other products to see the highlighting effect more, but it had a tendency to look unblended even though it seemed diffused to my eye in photos; it definitely looked better in person as a result. The cconsistency was smooth, dense but not stiff or difficult to apply, and it had opaque coverage. The highlighter lasted for eight hours on me before fading.

Overview of the Formula

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush).

In fact, the majority of the “matte” shades were more like semi-matte or natural matte where there were no distinctive shimmer particles but they seemed to take on the natural finish of the skin, which gave the “mattes” a particularly seamless finish on the skin but might be dewier on oilier skin types than desired.

S114

Make Up For Ever S114 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium brown with soft, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable, with a smooth, dense texture. It’s a lighter shade, so for contouring, I could see it working on light to light-medium skin tones, and it could also work as a subtle, brown blush. The powder blended out seamlessly on the skin and took little work to get it there. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

B204

Make Up For Ever B204 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. The shimmer was quite fine, so it sat well on the skin and never emphasized my natural texture. As I buffed and blended the blush onto my skin, it yielded a soft sheen that looked natural and not shimmery. It had rich, opaque color coverage with a moderately dense, smooth texture, the type that feels like it has silicones in it and will work better with a moderate hand or a denser blush brush. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading slightly.
