B308

Make Up For Ever B308 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, medium orange-coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had a more “natural matte” finish, which I’d define as a matte finish (no shimmer) but reads skin-like applied, rather than dry, flat, or powdery. What I liked was that it did not darken on the skin like some matte blushes can and looked very true-to-pan applied. The consistency was denser, like others in the formula, but smooth to the touch, blendable, and easy to work. The blush wore well for nine hours on me before I noticed any fading.

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.

B308 is a perfect peach blush for my complexion, but I have MAC Spring Flock, so getting this particular one would probably be redundant. Love the very skin-like finish to it, though!

Hi Christine,
Wow this looks gorgeous! Do you plan to do one of your amazing roundups on these blushes once you are finished reviewing them all? That feature really helps me narrow down the best of a new line as sometimes they can be overwhelming. The top down ranking is particularly helpful. 🙂
I have a couple of your roundups bookmarked so reference so I can refer to them in Sephora ha ha!
Thank you,
Christina
