Make Up For Ever I802 Coral Pink Artist Shadow
Make Up For Ever I802 Coral Pink Artist Shadow

Make Up For Ever I802 Coral Pink Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light-medium, coral-pink with a soft, frosted finish. Surratt Beauty Ponceau (P, $32.00) is brighter. IT Cosmetics Pretty in Peony (P, $24.00) is pinker. theBalm Crisp is more shimmery. MAC Petal Power (LE, $27.00) is lighter. Clinique Peach Pop (02) (P, $21.00) is similar. NARS Day Dream (LE, $29.00) is less shimmery. Tom Ford Beauty Love Lust (P, $55.00) is warmer. NARS Orgasm (P, $29.00) is more shimmery. MAC Supercontinental (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes. (Here are some comparison swatches of eyeshadows.)

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.

  1. I LOVE it!!! I will wait for a few more blush cum shadow reviews and make a 3 compact blush palette!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ As for shadows I will keep collecting new palettes I guess. I wonder if Sephora will ever get to changing the pricing on multiple buys though! :-(
    Love the new formula!!!

    • I wish Sephora separated out the “blush” shades from the Shadows like they did before, just because it would be easier to find them in a sea of 210!

      • xamyx

        I have a couple of shades that are clearly eyeshadow shades, but they are labeled “blush”. I was told (although I can’t confirm the validity) that some shades are/were labeled as blush to get around FDA regulations.

        • Yes, that’s probably it. I just don’t like that it’s not clear online, you know? That’s a choice that the consumer has to make (whether to wear blush on the eyes), and I’d like it to at least be clear!

  2. It’s probably too warm for me but it looks nice and fresh on you!

  3. Would you say these creamy ones are similar in texture to the Troy Surratt blushes?
    Also, will you review all the new eyeshadows?

    • Different – like Troy Surratt’s is a powder for sure, but this isn’t even quite a powder. It really feels like a gel-powder hybrid, because it has a more play-doh like feel to it, though only slightly – like 20% gel, 80% powder.

      Unfortunately, buying 200+ eyeshadows isn’t in the budget!

      • Really? Not the budget? Haha! Amen!

      • Thank you.

        Haha, sorry I just thought maybe they have sent you a lot of shades as press samples, but I guess they must have divided the line and sent it to different bloggers like they did with their brushes? 210 is such a large amount, I can imagine getting overwhelmed and lost in store.

        • I believe I received five shades, and then I was able to get another eight (I think I have 13 in total) after showing them the Swatch Gallery as press. I’m hoping the additional 30 shades from the anniversary palette will help replace some of the shades from MUFE I had before. I was able to do so many before, because I bought them at IMATS as refills so they were ~$8 each (they’re $14.83 each now at the cheapest), so at least with the anniversary palette, it brings the cost down to ~$8 each as well.

    You look beyond amazing! I can’t wait for a review of the Vegas Lights palette!!

  5. Veeeeery cute! Would wear, totally :-)

  6. This looks just like Orgasm in the pan! :-) Really pretty on you! :-)

    What eyeshadow colors are you using in these photos? It’s gorgeous!

  8. What a confusing product! It’s a gel, no, it’s a powder. It’s an eyeshadow, wait, it’s a blush? It costs $21 but maybe it actually costs $17! MUFE, you crazy.

  9. You look fantastic! That blush is gorgeous, too.

  10. I love love love your eye look here Christine, just stunning!! I can’t wait to try and recreate it!!

  11. Christina

    Pretty color, but I’m thinking the name of the eyeshadow shade is Blush, not that it’s really a blush product. The shade certainly matches up with a “blush” color. Who knows!

    I’m definitely going to pick some up to play with!

    • Nope – Make Up For Ever doesn’t really put out names (numbers), but I think Sephora has made them at least attach some color attribute to it – which is Coral Pink.

      The eyeshadows have ‘EYE SHADOW’ printed below ‘ARTIST SHADOW’ vs. how this has ‘BLUSH’ printed beneath. Hope that helps! :)

  12. Is the combo pricing something that’s supposed to be available in Sephora stores, or is it exclusive to the MUFE boutiques?

    • The corporate office told me everywhere, and a reader tweeted me a picture of the pricing available in a Sephora store – but I don’t see it online. (I don’t live near a Sephora.)

  13. Oooo that look is HOT! :) I have way too many blushes but it’s lovely land looks fascinating on you! Nice!

  14. Wow! Your look in this post is so editorial! I mean that in a good way, I should clarify – just looks like something straight out of Vogue ๐Ÿ˜€

    I like this colour, and I like how the sheen to the finish isn’t aggressive. Very pretty!

  15. Christine, was this one sent to you like this?
    The ones I got from my store don’t come in the individual packaging like this so they aren’t labeled as shadow or blush.
    I wonder how I can tell what’s what without the individual packaging like this.
    The ones at Sephora come in a little disposable container and you buy the case separate.

    It looks beautiful on you! I can’t get enough of these shadows, got me 6 already :)

    • Hi Marcela,

      Yes, this was how it was sent to me! I have a few in the refill plastic packaging (the flimsy, as-is packaging) and a few in the actual compact. I haven’t purchased any (I’ve been waiting for the discount to show up on Sephora’s website) yet – will be trying to purchase the 30 palette (cheapest way for me to buy 30 shades to swatch for readers).

      • Oh okay, got u! Well Sephora inside JCP has them at the sale price, if you have access to one of those stores near you!
        I work at one, but we got about half the shades, so I wanted to buy some of the ones we don’t have, online.
        I noticed the deal wasn’t available online, so I messaged Sephora on facebook, and they told me that this was an exclusive pricing to SiJCP!
        I am also waiting for the 30 palette, cannot wait to get it! :)

        • Thanks for the heads up! When I asked MUFE about the discount not showing, they followed up and said it would be effective August 1st on (I asked late July when they first arrived online), so that’s a real bummer to hear.

  16. This may be a little too light for me but I love how it looks on you!

  17. Beautiful blush colour – I’d have a pretty hard time using it as an eyeshadow. I think the special pricing is a great incentive! Knowing this, I’d definitely want to stock up!

    I sold one of these as a blush at work today! Someone came in looking for the Smashbox contour palette, which we were out of, so I suggested making her own cheek palette with the MUFE colors and she ended up going with a matte contour and highlight, with this as a blush :) I really want it too, so I was kinda jealous haha

  19. LuxLosAngeles

    FABULOUS look on this one, Christine!

  20. This is absolutely stunning and I want it very badly.

    Ooh, I love this! Eyeshadows that double as blushes always get me ๐Ÿ˜‰

  22. Also, another question. Is the pan the same size as the mufe hd blush or a mac blush pan?

  23. Chrissie

    Hi Christine, how does this compare to MAC’s Ripe for Love. They look similar from my screen, but I might be seeing things weirdly. Thanks in advance!

  24. I love your makeup in this photo, Christine! The colours really suit you!

  25. oksana

    Wow wow what a beautiful make up

  26. Wow, that look! Blush is gorg., & thnx for the review, but wow, that look! That’s a quadruple-take head spinner of a look! Soooo beautiful & such a perfectly executed ensemble! You look amazing, Christine!

  27. This blush is so pretty! <3 But I'm so drawn to your lip color! Great combo. ^^

  28. AbigailOD

    You look so gorgeous here, Christine!! :) This makes me miss my Mac Supercontinental that I passed on to my sister (she wanted it so bad!). Is Mac Style much too lighter than this?
