The Scarlet Season: Make Up For Ever #205 Lipstick

Make Up For Ever #205 Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a deep, blue-based red. It’s fairly bright and most definitely noticeable, but it’s deep enough that it doesn’t come off too bright. It has a slightly glossy sheen, and it’s surprisingly hydrating. One of the best parts about Make Up For Ever’s lipsticks is how well they wear and how long they wear for. I find I get no less than four solid hours of amazing wear, but it easily extends into six or more, if I’ve only eaten a light meal or had one or two drinks. #205 is richly pigmented, goes opaque in just one layer, and it hugs lips.

What about you? Would you wear this red?

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!

    This is the first time I see a red lipstick and say : YES i want. 200% yes !! It just looks amazing, there is nothing else to it, it’s just really really pretty. The colour, the finish … everything. Okay, once I’m back home, i’m buying it. Thank you Christine, I think you just showed me the perfect shade of red.

  2. That lipstick is gorgeous on you… it looks like it has an amazing texture!

    I’ve been wanting this one for awhile now. I’ll have to pick it up in Quebec this hoilday.

    Gorgeous! Love MUFE!

  5. Totally agree with Margot. a real knock out from first glance!

  6. Looks amazing! Love MUFE!

    For some reason I can’t just register “hydrating” and “staying” in the same lipstick. In my experience, a lipstick that is hydrating stays for an hour or two at MAX. Which is why I always use MATTE red lipstick for my lips. Now that stays for four hours.

    I mean, maybe I’m wrong with this lipstick. But I just can’t grasp that concept. I really hope I’m wrong!

    • Hey Bella,

      Everybody’s different – most lipsticks last at least four hours on me, matte or not, so for me, I don’t usually come across lipsticks that only last an hour on me, lol!

    This one looks really nice, and I love MUFE quite a bit. Perhaps this shall be one that I try out soon! Although I generally have issues with lip products lasting for a long time on my lips, especially since I have a bad habit of wiping the product off after a while.. I love lip products, but having something on them sometimes feel awkward, like right now haha.

    WOW! This is stunning! But would it run a bit too cool for Asian NC35 skin?

  10. Rae

    Oh my god — SO stunning! The finish looks amazing (not to mention that gorgeous blue-based hue.)

    That lipstick is absolutely gorgeous! I am a sucker for red. Funny enough, I’ve never tried the MUFE lipsticks even though their foundations and concealers are my HG products. I will have to try this, though!

  12. Thats pretty, but I dunno, it looks like its “trying to hard” to be red, LOL.

  13. Diane

    I NEED to check this out at Sephora ASAP!!! I’ve never thought about trying MUFE’s lipsticks, but this red needs to be tried on, it’s simply gorgeous!

    the 3rd one I like!!! great scarlet season!!!

  15. Wow, that is one incredible looking red!

  16. whoa, i like the finish. most reds i come across are super matte. i’m surprised it lasted so long on you.. i have to get it now! :)

  17. Morena

    WOW! Thats is nice. Love it!!
