FORMULA OVERVIEW | Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a powder eyeshadow available in five distinct finishes: Diamond, Iridescent, Matte, Metallic, and Satin. The texture of all finishes, except the Matte finish, are much denser and more like a cream-powder hybrid. I’ve used traditional eyeshadow brushes (like MAC’s 239, a go-to for me) with these and have hadn’t any issues, but for those who have, I would recommend a firmer, flatter synthetic brush (like MAC 242) to maximize payoff and application. The Diamond and Iridescent finishes have sparkle or micro-glitter, and I have found that the majority of shades have little to no fall out over time for me. The Metallic is the richest, smoothest formula out of the five finishes. The Mattes are soft and silky–much smoother and more finely-milled than the brand’s last formula–but these are sometimes sheerer, though buildable, and can be a little dusty or powdery to work with. The Mattes typically apply well and blend out without issue. The Satin finish feels the firmest of the five finishes but is the most blendable and pigmented; some are closer to metallic and others are more like a natural matte on. I get seven to ten hour wear, depending on the shade, across the range. The eyeshadows are larger than standard (0.08 oz. per the packaging). For the most bang for your buck, consider purchasing two ($32.00) or three at once ($46.00) or watch for seasonal releases of palettes (just be careful if you’ve already bought a few–the brand repeats very often).

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette
Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette ($44.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes nine shades (all of the shades are also available individually in the permanent range). Two things worth noting: there are several repeats in this palette if you already own several of their past releases, and the amount of product in this is less than the last two volumes and $2 more. Oh, and there are, again, no matte shades. It’s such a shame that they’ve continued to repeat shades when they have 200+ shades in their range to choose from (see this sheet for repeats). If you haven’t picked up a lot of the brand’s palettes or singles previously, it IS a good palette overall — pigmented, long-wearing, and easy to use.

ME230 Peacock Blue is a muted, medium-dark blue with “warmer” tones and a frosted sheen. It is still a cool-toned shade, of course! It had good pigmentation, but it was as opaque as my permanent version (or other variations I’ve come across in their palettes), unfortunately. The texture was a little firmer, though still dense and blendable, and ultimately, when applied, it builds up easily and within two layers so the lack of pigmentation wasn’t noticeable. It lasted for eight and a half hours. Too Faced Mint Chip (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Controversy (LE) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Mystic Hour (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Stila Sapphire (P) is lighter (95% similar).

Gucci Beauty Iconic Ottanio (P, $37.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Anastasia Prussian Blue (P, $12.00) is cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Unhinged (LE, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar).

Make Up For Ever Artist Palettes – Repeats

One question I get asked when there’s a new Artist Palette is what the overlap is, which is definitely not something I can keep in my head any longer (too many releases!). I’ve created a spreadsheet that you can access below that shows the entire shade range along with palette releases to-date and what shades are where, along with how often certain shades have appeared. I have also included the year the palette was released.  For your reference, I’ve also included all shades that have appeared three times or more (at the time of publishing this post):

  1. I544 Pink Granite x5
  2. ME230 Peacock Blue x5
  3. ME512 Golden Beige x5
  4. D236 Lagoon Blue x4
  5. D652 Celestial Earth x4
  6. ME930 Black Purple x4
  7. D826 Fig x3
  8. D926 Blueberry x3
  9. I524 Pinky Beige x3
  10. I528 Pearl x3
