Formula Overview

Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge LipstickMake Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) 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.

Three lovely and well done lipsticks! If I either didn’t have a few dupes for the one, with some other wishlist items that are close dupes of the other two, I would be all over these! C108 *almost* reminds me of my MAC Royally Riotous enough that I don’t think I’d need it?

Oh great! I like all of these, will have to add it to my wishlist of like 53 lippies. I don’t know how I’m going to be able to narrow thr list down, since so many of them scored A’s this year!

I looked at C108 yesterday and almost bought one. I like the shiny finish, but then I also looked at the new YSL gloss stain in 407 and am considering that the next time I have $40 to spend on a lip color!!
