Make Up For Ever #50 Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick
Going Basic Black with Make Up For Ever
Make Up For Ever #50 Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a semi-matte black. It’s black–that’s really all it is–no subtle nuances of black but a real, dark black. To get well-defined edges, use a lip brush or even line with black eyeliner prior to lipstick application (which will also provide better wear). The only area I had trouble keeping the color in place was in the center of my lips, where the area tends to fleshier and sits more inside the mouth.
my thoughts on the formula: The Rouge Artist Intense formula is typically opaque, and while it’s not a moisturizing lipstick, it’s not a drying one either, though it does not feel creamy against the lips (it may take a little more pressure to apply than your average lipstick). With lighter shades, I see four hours of wear, but with darker shades, I get around five to six hours of wear.
