The Best & Worst of Make Up For Ever Artist Face Colors

Make Up For Ever Artist Face Colors - Blushes
Make Up For Ever Artist Face Colors – Blushes

Make Up For Ever Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is available in three types–Highlighter, Sculpting, and Blush–with a total of 34 shades available. 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.

Happy Friday!

Each week, we share our beauty hauls, talk weekend plans and learn a little about each other.

Let's Chat!

Share your own answers in the comments!

  • Haul: Select items from Dior/Guerlain holiday, Becca Apres Ski face palette, Ciate x Chloee Morello palette – if it’s not swatched on the blog yet, that means I haven’t had a chance to get to it – and I’m not comfortable giving an ETAs on swatches or reviews right now, sorry!
  • Weekend plans: More photographing/swatching/reviews.
  • What do you do to help yourself refocus?: I’m a planner, so if I go back to my plan or create a plan to deal with whatever chaos is ensuing, that usually helps me regain my focus.

P.S. — Join us over in the official Temptalia chatroom on Discord! 🙂
