The Sultry Season: Make Up For Ever #49 Rouge Artist Lipstick
Make Up For Ever #49 Rouge Artist Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a satin blueberry, and though I would never have thought to use the word “blueberry” as a descriptor, it kind of is. It is very similar to the color of baked blueberries–very dark, a tinge blue, but veering on purple. This is a rich, intense shade–very vampy. I felt all, “I vant to suck your blooooood!” when I wore it, but it is sexy in a dark, sultry way. It is an opaque shade that goes on and feels a bit dry initially, but it’s not actually drying when you wear it for a few hours. The color clings and hugs lips and this shade gave me five hours of wear, plus a residual stain. It was scent- and taste-free.
Is this the right vamp for you? Would you wear it?
