S116

Make Up For Ever S116 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium brown with warm, golden undertones and a semi-matte finish. It looked natural on the skin without adding any shimmer or true shine, but it never looked flat or dry. The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable with a moderately dense texture that did require a slightly heavier hand (or denser brush) to pickup product evenly. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that lasted well for eight and a half hours on my skin.

Formula Overview

$23.00/0.17 oz. - $135.29 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "intense color payoff" with a "long-lasting finish." The range is split into three types--Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes--that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush). There are three finishes--matte, shimmer, and pearl but was less obvious. In fact, the majority of the "matte" shades were more like semi-matte or natural matte where there were no distinctive shimmer particles but they seemed to take on the natural finish of the skin, which gave the "mattes" a particularly seamless finish on the skin but might be dewier on oilier skin types than desired. None of the 34 shades available were frosted or metallic except three of the highlighters (H100, H106, H312).

The pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque, depending largely on the shade, though they were always buildable if they were not opaque in a single layer. Some of the deeper, more matte shades were less forgiving and took more effort to diffuse and blend, even when I used a lighter hand or a more feathery brush. The texture was smooth, velvety, and moderately dense without any powderiness or dustiness in the pan. The formula has lasted between eight and ten hours on me.

You can view swatches of all of the blushes, all of the highlighters, and all of the sculpting powders in the Swatch Gallery.

S112

Make Up For Ever S112 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a soft, golden brown with a semi-matte finish. This would be a contouring shade on lighter skin than mine, as it just barely shows up on me with a heavy application. I did not feel like it ran too warm for a contour, but it would likely work best on fairer and warmer skin tones than someone who was very cool-toned. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being powdery or too firmly packed into the pan. The shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

17 Antic Gold

Make Up For Ever 17 Antic Gold Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is muted, medium-dark gold with warm, olive undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation applied dry, which was amplified to more opaque coverage with a stronger sheen when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was soft, blendable, and finely-milled to the point that the loose powder combined well when applied to the skin. I did find it easier to use on the lid than on the cheeks, as it seemed to emphasize my skin’s texture just a bit as a cheek highlighter. It wore well for eight hours on me.

The Star Lit Powders can be used to “highlight eyes, lips and cheeks” with an “ultra-fine loose powder” that can be used “wet or dry to customize coverage intensity and luminosity.” While checking the weight on these, I noticed that the weight differs from shade to shade; this one had a mere 0.02 oz. while others ranged from 0.03 oz. to 0.09 oz. I also noticed that it appears the brand identifies what area you can use a shade on by listing an icon on the back of the jar in the shape of a pair of lips, an eyeball, and then a face (presumably for cheeks).

10 Peach

Make Up For Ever 10 Peach Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and multi-colored pearl that gave it a metallic finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable color payoff when applied with a dry brush, and it had richer, opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to work with, despite it being a loose product, on the cheeks as well as the eyes. For using on the lips, I recommend patting lightly with a fingertip. I found the shimmer in this particular shade to be a bit larger compared to other shades, though I did not think it emphasized my skin’s natural texture. The product wore well for eight hours on my cheeks and on my eyes.

H106

Make Up For Ever H106 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is brilliant, blinding medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a very smooth, almost cream-like texture that was moderately dense but easily blended out on the skin. The powder diffused nicely along the cheeks, and the more I blended it out, the less metallic it became. At full coverage, it did emphasize my skin’s natural texture just slightly, though. On me, this highlighter wore well for eight and a half hours.

9 Coral

Make Up For Ever 9 Coral Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.02 oz.) is rich, medium-dark pink-coral with warm, golden shimmer. This particular shade was only listed as safe to wear on the cheeks–presumably as a blush, then–and not permitted for eye or lip use. The powder had a soft, silky texture that was incredibly finely-milled, which made it a lot easier to diffuse and blend out on the cheeks–something necessary for such a rich shade! It had medium, buildable pigmentation when applied dry, and opaque coverage was achieved when applied damp. The shimmer finish became more prominent when applied damp or when buffed more into the skin. This shade stayed on well for nine hours on me.

The Star Lit Powders can be used to “highlight eyes, lips and cheeks” with an “ultra-fine loose powder” that can be used “wet or dry to customize coverage intensity and luminosity.” While checking the weight on these, I noticed that the weight differs from shade to shade; this one had a mere 0.02 oz. while others ranged from 0.03 oz. to 0.09 oz. I also noticed that it appears the brand identifies what area you can use a shade on by listing an icon on the back of the jar in the shape of a pair of lips, an eyeball, and then a face (presumably for cheeks).
