Candy Pink (200)

Make Up For Ever Candy Pink (200) Artist Acrylip ($24.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had intense, opaque color coverage with little product.

It’s a liquid lipstick formula that is supposed to have “buildable color intensity and shine” with a “non-sticky, non-drying” formula that includes a slanted, flocked applicator and a squeeze-tube format. I don’t know that I would really describe it as buildable; I would say that you can apply the tiniest amount and get less coverage, though it would still be medium-to-semi-opaque and have less shine. For me, it seemed that more product yielded glossier coverage with slightly more pigmentation. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and spread easily across the lips. If I pressed my lips together, I could see faint “lines,” particular with lighter shades like this one. It lasted for five and a half hours on me and was non-drying. It didn’t seem to have any noticeable scent or taste.

Make Up For Ever Holiday 2016 Artistic Lip Ink & Brush Set

Make Up For Ever Artistic Lip Ink Set
Make Up For Ever Artistic Lip Ink Set

Make Up For Ever Artistic Lip Ink Set ($40.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) includes an Artistic Lip Ink and a lip brush to apply it with, which are housed in a decorative, metal tin. The brush had a good length for dipping in the container, but it was a bit long and had a thinner edge than seemed ideal as I applied it, but I was able to get sharp, relatively clean edges without a lot of effort with it.

Red Ink is a bright, medium red with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. The formula was watery and thin in the container, and it took about 15 minutes to dry down on lips, but even after a half hour, it had not dried down on my arm (which is why the swatch has more sheen). Initially, it looked rather streaky, but it seemed to even out as it dried. After it dried down, the product didn’t feel clingy or dry, but it was still thin and lightly tacky for another 15-20 minutes. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding over the seven hours it lasted. The formula felt drying to me after four hours of wear.

Make Up For Ever Artistic (Holiday 2016) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever Artistic (Holiday 2016) Artist Palette
Make Up For Ever Artistic (Holiday 2016) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever Artistic (Holiday 2016) Artist Palette ($49.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes nine shades of Artist Eyeshadow–all shades are from the permanent range, and if you already have a few of the brand’s pre-made palettes, this is probably redundant. I personally prefer the cardboard palettes they’ve put out before, as they are slimmer and more travel-friendly–the metal case is more substantial but seems rather bulky. The quality of the eyeshadows was consistent with the permanent singles I have, and if you’ve never tried the brand’s formula, this might be a palette to check out. But as many fans of the Artist range have said: with 200 shades to choose from, how is it that they keep pulling from the same 50?

Value

  • Artist Shadow: $21.00 for 0.08 oz. or $262.50/oz.
  • Total Value: $118.13

ME122 Snow is a bright white with cooler undertones and a frosted, metallic finish.

S102 Onyx is a deep black with a satin finish. It had intense, opaque color coverage with a smooth, cream-like consistency that applied well to bare skin. Even though it is quite pigmented, I didn’t have any trouble blending and diffusing the edges out. The color started to fade after nine hours of wear.

ME108 Steel is a medium-dark gray with a metallic finish and bluer undertones. The pigmentation was great, while the texture was fairly smooth, blendable, and dense. It could have been a touch easier to blend out around the edges. It started to break down on me after eight and a half hours of wear. NARS Bad Behaviour (LE, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Evening Grey (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Buxom Cool Caviar (P, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar).

D552 Crystalline Gray Beige is a very light taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, though it was not quite opaque, but it was buildable to full coverage with two layers. The texture was soft, a little sparkly, so there were some loose sparkles that came away from the base color as I blended it out on the lid. This shade wore well for eight hours and had minor fall out. Stila Rose Pewter (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Constellation (864) #2 (LE) is cooler (95% similar).

I220 Sapphire is a rich, navy blue with cool undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. The color payoff was mostly opaque, but the texture was firmer and too dense–it was harder to pick up color and diffuse it around the edges without the color looking draggy around the edges. It wore well for nine hours but stained slightly. Clinique Massively Midnight (P, $17.00) is brighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cobalt Rush #3 (P) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Dark Rite (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Les Ombres de Nuit #3 (LE) is darker (95% similar). Milani Bella Navy (09) (P, $4.49) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar).

D712 Creme Brulee is a medium copper with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The pigmentation was fully opaque, while the consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable, despite having a moderate sparkle to it. I felt like most of the sparkle meshed with the base color, so there was very little fall out during application and almost none during the nine hours it wore for. bareMinerals Tan Lines (LE) is lighter (95% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #7 (P) is lighter (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 13 (LE) is warmer, less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop La-La (LE, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar).

ME302 Peacock is a deep teal with warm, brownish undertones and a cooler overtone paired with a pearly sheen. The color coverage was opaque, but it could have been a bit truer-to-color. The texture was smooth, cream-like, but it was a bit denser than the permanent version, so it wasn’t quite as effortless to apply. It started to crease after nine hours of wear. Urban Decay Floss (LE, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). LORAC Deep Teal (LE, $19.00) is warmer, darker (95% similar). MAC Woodsmoke (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ME912 Orchid is a bright, medium purple with warm, pink undertones and a pearly sheen. This is actually a blush, as it is not recommended use on the eyes. The texture was soft, smooth, dense but not stiff, and it blended out well on the cheeks as a blush. It wore well for nine hours on me. bareMinerals Boudoir (P) is more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Fishnet (P, $19.00) is more muted (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Radiant Orchid (LE) is more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay 1985 (LE, $19.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar).
