Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum Artist Shadow
Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum Artist Shadow

Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with just a hint of gray and a high-frost finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was soft, creamy, and extremely blendable. It wore well for nine hours on me. Ardency Inn Rose Gold (P, $21.00) is more mauve. Makeup Geek Night Life (P, $6.99) is warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #3 (LE) is a touch lighter. Chanel Tisse Rivoli #1 (P) is darker, cooler-toned. YSL Saharienne #4 (P) is less shimmery, cooler-toned. Ulta Taupe (P, $10.00) is less shimmery. Laura Mercier Bamboo (P, $23.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Shakedown (LE, $18.00) is less frosted. Urban Decay Lost (P, $18.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Make Up For Ever M842 Wine Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium, muted berry with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a silky, finely-milled texture that was slightly powdery. Of all of Make Up For Ever’s finishes, the mattes feel the most like your traditional powder eyeshadow and the most like their original formula (but I think their mattes are smoother and silkier). Wine has some trouble adhering to bare skin, though plenty of pigment lifts off the surface–it just doesn’t stick. On me, it wears seven and a half hours before looking slightly faded. Sleek MakeUP Valley of Diamonds (LE, $9.99) is darker. Sleek MakeUP Honeymoon in Hollywood (LE, $9.99) is darker. Wet ‘n’ Wild I’m Seeing Triples Eyelid (LE, $2.29) is lighter. Disney by Sephora Sha La La (LE) is brighter. MAC Dynamic Duo 1 #2 (LE, $15.00) is darker. See comparison swatches

Make Up For Ever S616 Chocolate Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, creamy consistency that was blendable and never powdery. The finish is really nice, as it has a barely-there shimmer that just keeps it from looking too flat on the skin, but it doesn’t look shimmery applied. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly. bareMinerals Yes Please (P) is lighter. Tarte Chocolate Kisses (LE) is darker. Urban Decay Vengeance (LE, $18.00) is a touch lighter. Make Up For Ever S-60 (P, $21.00) is a cream product, more shimmery. MAC A Harvest of Greens #4 (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. Kat Von D Cry Later (LE) is more shimmery. MAC Texture (P, $15.00) is warmer, lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

I know Wine isn’t listed as a blush too but that’s exactly what I want to use it for. It looks like the kind of fall blush I’ve been searching for. So pretty!

In my book, M842 Wine is an A+. I have beaten bushes to find this color and have come come up empty. I have dark hair, hazel eyes, fair complexion with pink undertones. This is the PERFECT crease color for me. It looks so natural. (Browns tend to look dirty on me. This color is my ‘brown’, if you will.). For those of you who have similar coloring, please give this one a try. It’s a color as rare as a flawless diamond. And, it wears very, very well. Sorry, Christine, but I think you’re mistaken in your grade for this color. If it were any darker, it would’t be suitable for a crease color.

I’m glad it works well for you and you’ve discovered the perfect crease shade for your coloring!

My review is based on my personal experience – this is just how it performed for me 🙂 It has nothing to do with it being too dark or too light as a color (I do not rate based on whether a color is pretty or not) – the powdery texture I encountered made it troublesome to apply to the skin (again, my experience). We can have different experiences without it making someone wrong. We have an entire review system built into Temptalia so you can write your own review for a product so that you can add your experience to the overall big picture, and I encourage you to do so!

A couple of your dupes were much darker. MUFE advises not to brush back and forth as it will be too powdery. I have no idea if you did that, but it’s worth noting. Also, I set my brush down on the color and it picks up plenty of product w/out being powdery at all. I don’t mean contentious. I just think you’re mistaken. I’m very sorry if I have stepped on your toes. This is a crease color that a lot of people will shout hallelujah — and it’s about time! A matte no less. . .

Hi Anne,

The dupes I post are the closest I can find – sometimes there aren’t a lot so there may be more variance in that instance, and if you look at The Dupe List, you’ll always see that I note if they’re lighter, darker, more shimmery, less, etc. along with a percentage on how similar it is. I included the differences in the post as well, as I list similar shades that I can think of and how they differ (or don’t). Yours not being powdery is great, and I’m just happy you’re loving yours! Again, it’s not what I personally experienced, and I stand by my review.

I don’t doubt your sincerity and integrity for a second. But, you had similar reviews for the Chanel fall collection of eyeshadows, the best cool collection of matte colors by Chanel EVER.Some of us wonder if you have a bias against matte, cool shades that you are not aware of. But, I realize that the more I explain, the more you dig your heels in. So, I give up. You win.

Hi Anne,

I try to make it clear what I look for, what I find when I test and wear products so that anyone who reads it can understand why something scored such and such rating. We may look for different things, or we may be reviewing using different criteria, which is why many blogs and platforms for reviews exist so that we can all share our opinions and experiences. I am so glad you have shared yours so that readers can hear from someone else who has tried this shade as well! It is important to hear from others 🙂

I’ve got to butt in and say, chanel eyeshadows are horrific quality. I actually think she rated them far higher than they deserve. There are drugstore eyeshadows that beat chanel. I say this as a lover of MUFE, Tom Ford and UD shadows, but Chanel eyeshadows are the worst I’ve come across at that price point. I constantly go to swatch in hopes of change but no ma’am.

I just got in from the mall and stopped in quickly to Sephora to look for Jardin Perdu and Vice 3 (neither was in) and to get some Josie Maran argan oil. I decided that since the other shadows weren’t in, I’d get a 3 pan palette of MUFE shadows but DARN IT – I didn’t know the corresponding #’s for the ones I wanted or at least wanted to check out (Bronze and Reptile for sure) and the store doesn’t have a list showing names and numbers. I was SO frustrated and I think if I’d been 5 years old, I probably would have had a full-blown tantrum (as it was, I had an inner-tantrum). Now I think I’ll add Taupe Platinum to the mix but I’m going to hand write all the names and numbers and keep them in my purse!

Ugh, I totally understand, Mariella. The numbers run together, and I practically go cross-eyed trying to find them on Sephora.com anyway (because they’re not in alphabetical order, nor can you search, etc.). You can easily reverse numbers and get something totally different.

It is a shame they don’t add names to their system (many brands have both!), because I think it would also help create more popularity of particular shades!

I know you gave jazzberry highliner a dismal review, but I am so in love with it! It is such an unique color that I’m totaly willing to put up with the sheerness. It looks great with my green eyes and it’s amazing on your brown ones. What a beautiful combination you’ve put together. It’s perfect for autumn!

The only thing I like about it is the color, but every time I use it, I get annoyed that I have to suffer through the formula to get the color, LOL! Like I agree, it’s a unique color, but the formula 🙁

The wine color is kind of disappointing. I’d prefer it to be more deep and vibrant. The first one is gorgeous! The brown is very nice, but dupeable.

It’s hard to imagine a color they don’t have!

Although, as someone pointed out, this shade would make a lovely crease color as a change from brown or taupe.

And the hits keep coming. That Taupe Platinum seems like it would be a dream to wear. I love the smooth even sheen in has in the swatch. I wish MUFE would just use names instead of the numbering system because I can’t keep numbers in my head but I sure can remember descriptive names!

Hi Christine!
I hope I’m not too late to ask this. I’ve been looking to dupe Illamasqua’s Compliment quad forever, because I love the shades, but the quality isn’t there. I’ve had the most issues finding a shade close to Forgiveness, but it looks like Wine might be a close dupe. Comparing the swatches, it seems like they’re similar. Would you say they are close? Thank you!!

Woo, Taupe Palatinum! That is a seriously gorgeous shade. It has just the right Byzantine/antique gold to it (if that makes sense) to set my rogue’s loot alarms going! 😀

I’m also pleased that, despite its application difficulties, Wine is at least even in colour. I have Valley of Diamonds, so I don’t feel a pressing need to acquire a similar colour, but somehow ‘patchiness’ offends me most of all with eyeshadows – so I’m glad that this one doesn’t seem to suffer from that, at least!

Lovely look, Christine.
I like all of the shadows, but have ones that are close enough, for once!
I must say MUFE have done a fantastic job with the eyeshadows.

I love all three. You did an enchanting eye! Lovely. These shades are what we need in palettes! Good thorough unique colors with great quality. 🙂 I am loving MJB Parisienne!!! That.. Is what I’m talkin about! 🙂

This blog is more then amazing in many ways! I like the color choices and the fact you sample the color so we can get a real look at the color over a skin tone. I’ve often bought colors that look good in the package and can’t be tried at the store but try them at home and get highly disappointed. I love the dupe lists showing the different shades also.
