Cool Papaya (310)

Make Up For Ever Cool Papaya (310) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020)Make Up For Ever Cool Papaya (310) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020) ($23.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a deep, coral-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that did not build up well as the more I applied, the more it seemed to pill and bunch up together in small balls of product (though I couldn’t feel them when I pressed my lips together) and gather around any textural imperfections on my lips.

Despite that, the actual texture of the lipstick felt lightweight, thin, and more velvety with light slip, so it was comfortable to apply and to wear. This shade stayed on for four hours and felt non-drying over time.

Formula Overview

$23.00/0.11 oz. - $209.09 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to "blur, smooth, and hydrate" with "intensity of a matte and the comfort of a cream" and delivers "ultra-pigment[ation]." The consistency reminded me of the more new-school "matte" formulas that feel velvety without wetness/shine--the ones that feel more silicone-heavy and primer-like, which are often thinner, too. I'd say that the new Rouge Artist formula has a little more traditional creaminess, so there was a satin shine (which was as marketed--satin finish!).

The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and thin without feeling clingy. In the close-up photos, there were several shades that looked like there were little bits scattered on my lips, almost like it had pilled, though I didn't feel it when I pressed my lips together and couldn't see it in person.

They had mostly opaque to opaque color coverage in a single layer. Most shades applied evenly and sat well enough on my lips, though there were some that emphasized my lip lines slightly. They wore for four to six hours on me with some of the very rich, deeper shades lasting a little longer than that. The formula felt mostly non-drying to lightly hydrating to me.

There was a sweet, slightly floral scent that was noticeable on for the first few minutes, but I didn't notice any taste.

Saucy Tangerine (312)

Make Up For Ever Saucy Tangerine (312) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020)Make Up For Ever Saucy Tangerine (312) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020) ($23.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a neon orange with strong, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not apply evenly and seemed to catch on every bit of texture on my lips.

The product also seemed more prone to balling up in places, even if it wasn’t visible in person and not something I could feel when I pressed my lips together. The consistency felt lightweight, smooth, and didn’t tug during application (despite looking worse for the wear!). It lasted for four hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Untamed Fire (402)

Make Up For Ever Untamed Fire (402) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020)Make Up For Ever Untamed Fire (402) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020) ($23.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a brighter, medium orange-red with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could be built up to full coverage with a second layer.

The texture felt smooth, lightweight, and more velvety, so it didn’t feel as wet/creamy as traditional satin lipsticks do. It wore well for five hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Too bad Cool Papaya has a sub par formula that pills up, because it truly is a lovely shade of lipstick. Lucky for me, I do have ColourPop On Repeat.
