S404

Make Up For Ever S404 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a dark, plummy brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The powder had a moderately dense texture, which gave it a smooth feel across the surface without kicking up powder, but it took a slightly heavier hand or denser brush to pick up product–I would not call it difficult, though. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that stayed on for nine hours on my skin. The issue I had with it was that the color took more effort to diffuse and blend out for even application.

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.

B208

Make Up For Ever B208 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is soft, light-medium pink with subtle, warmer, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had excellent pigmentation in a single layer, though I found the denser texture to be forgiving–I could easily use less product for sheerer coverage or build up in layers. There was no powderiness in the pan yet the powder blended out easily on the skin and sat incredibly well on it. One thing I noticed with the color was that it seemed to darken just slightly on my skin after a few minutes, so it read brighter applied than initially swatched (but it seemed truer-to-pan color). It wore well for almost nine hours on me before fading slightly.

S502

Make Up For Ever S502 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer and easily built-up to full coverage if desired with not even a full second layer. The texture was smooth and moderately dense in the pan, and though it felt like the majority of the line, it did not blend out as evenly or as easily as other shades have for me. It looked a little patchy on me even after buffing and blending with vigor. It did wear really well at nine hours, but I just wish it was easier to work with on the skin. To make it more even, I would use my foundation brush and buff and blend the edges (though I did not do so when I tested for wear).

M205

Make Up For Ever M205 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with cooler undertones and a semi-matte finish. It wasn’t shiny, but the texture was creamy and velvety enough that it did not appear flat or totally matte to my eye, though it eventually wore down to a matte finish after a couple of hours of wearing it. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly across the lips, but there was a touch of color that separated and pulled into my deeper lip lines over time. This shade lasted well for five hours and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.12 oz. - $183.33 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be long-wearing, “extremely pigmented,” and hydrating. It is available in two finishes–Cream and Matte, indicated by the C or M in the beginning of each shade’s name. The Cream formula is richly pigmented, lightly creamy without being too emollient or slippery, and go on smoothly and feel good while worn (wear ranges from four to eight hours, depending on the shade).

The Matte formula is thinner and clings somewhat to lips, though it goes on nicely and doesn’t tug, and it doesn’t always look flattering on as it can emphasize imperfections on my lips but really depends on the shade, as some look great on. I found the Cream formula to be moderately hydrating, while the Matte formula was slightly to moderately drying. All shades had a slight, rosy scent to them, though I didn’t notice any taste.

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.

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.
