Make Up For Ever #N40 Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick

It looked a bit pale and pastel when swatched, but it should flatter a wider range of skin tones once it is applied, because it’s not fully opaque and lets the natural lip color shine through, which will, inevitably, alter the way the color looks based on your natural lip color. This formula is supposed to be extremely hydrating (purportedly “for eight hours after application”). The color applies with quite a bit of pigmentation, but there’s that soft, slightly transparent-nature of this type of finish that makes it less heavy. Although, the press release says the formula “provides translucent shine with sheer yet radiant color,” and this applies rather opaque.

Make Up For Ever Folk Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick

It’s a new, limited edition shade in a new, coming-soon formula. Make Up For Ever has taken their Rouge Artist formula but given it a softer, sheerer color and finish.  Folk wore for three and a half hours, which is just a little below average (four hours).  It has a lighter texture compared to Rouge Artist, and it seems a slightly more hydrating, though I wouldn’t describe it as a moisturizing lipstick.  It has a slicker consistency that gives it a bit more glide across the lips thank Rouge Artist, which has a creamier texture.  I think it’s great the the brand is branching out with the formula and going for something that still has color but isn’t as creamy or as dense as their Rouge Artist range.
