Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea is particularly impressive for me, because it doesn’t really truly break down on me through the day, even 10-14 hours into the day (without a primer). I feel like it gets a little dewier many hours later, but it doesn’t become patchy or sheer out. Make Up For Ever Mat+ Velvet was pretty long-wearing from what I remember (it’s been years since I’ve worn it).
Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipsticks ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, permanent lipstick range that features 45 shades split into two finishes, Cream and Matte. Here are swatches of all the creams (reviews to come!).
Kat Von D’s Serpentina palette; the way the release was handled was frustrating, and I don’t know why it was released in such small batches, which made it seem like it was selling out in minutes when now it seems like there is plenty of stock to go around. Then, to make matters worse, the product itself seems to have a lot of quality issues, but these quality issues extend into inconsistencies, too, as readers have reported different shades working differently!
