Unlike cool-toned browns, there’s no shortage of warm-toned browns (seriously, check out this gallery), but here are a few of my very favorites that you can individually and any time you want. I’d love to hear your warmer brown must-haves!
This is technically classified as a blush (see the label on the back of the compact), though it is lumped in with the Artist Shadow formula and range. The new Artist Shadow formula is described as a “highly-blendable, gel-powder eyeshadow with vivid color payoff” (guess we’ll substitute eyeshadow for blush!). The texture is very interesting on this shade; some of the Artist Shadows feel like a regular powder eyeshadow, but some feel more like a firm cream, which this one does. I can take the back of my brush, stab at the eyeshadow, and it creates a dent but doesn’t chip away any product; similarly, I can press and smooth it back out to an even surface. It’s incredibly pigmented with a smooth texture that blends easily on the skin. As an eyeshadow, it lasted for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly, and as a blush, it lasted for eight hours.
Also, I’ve yet to see the special pricing when you buy more than one eyeshadow on Sephora’s website. I spoke with the Make Up For Ever Boutique at Valley Fair (CA), and she said that the LA and NY boutiques will ship anywhere. If you live near a boutique, they have the special pricing in effect. If you buy two or more shades, plus the duo compact, it’s $34 ($17/each), and if you purchase three shades with the trio palette, it’s $44 ($14.67/each). The boutique said they were charging $14.33/each after 3. There is also an 18x and 10x palette available for those who want to fill a larger palette.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades! We try to update products as they become discontinued, and if you discover a product has been discontinued, please help us help others by letting us know.

MAKE UP FOR EVER introduces Artist Liner, a highly pigmented, gliding eye pencil that offers endless creative possibilities to effortlessly define and enhance eyes. With colors ranging from a carbon, matte black to an iridescent pop of purple, Artist Liner gives eyeliner a bold update for fall.
Artist Liner is a twist-up, gliding eye pencil that delivers intense color payoff in a range of shades. The formula is especially silky and blendable for easy application, and the twist-up pencil means never having to sharpen. The ultra-creamy texture can draw a bold, long-lasting line, or can be blended out for a smoky effect. A combination of Oils and Waxes give Artist Liner smudge-proof properties, while Polymers and Pigments work to provide a long-wearing result and color intensity. Available in 15 hues in Matte, Metallic, Iridescent, Diamond, and Satin finishes, play up your eyes and play with color for a classic or creative look that can take you from day to night.
