Make Up For Ever #20 Rouge Artist Lipstick

The Sultry Season: Make Up For Ever #20 Rouge Artist Lipstick

Make Up For Ever #20 Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pearly rust,” and it’s exactly that–a shimmering, lightly frosted rusty red with subtle copper-red shimmer.  It’s opaque and wears four hours with ease on me.  Rouge Artist Intense has an interesting formula where it’s very thin, almost dry and takes more pressure to apply than your average lipstick, but it doesn’t actually feel drying when you wear it.  It’s scent- and taste-free–and it doesn’t have any waxy scent, either, which often plagues supposedly scent-free lip products!

Is this the right red for you? Would you wear it?

The Sultry Season is a series of posts featuring deep, rich shades of brown, berry, plum, and wine lipsticks and lipglosses — just right for autumn — that runs through October 2010.
