Cream Beige (101)

Make Up For Ever Cream Beige (101) Artist Liquid Matte ($20.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The consistency was thin but very fluid, almost too fluid (seemed to take extra effort to keep the product within the lines!). It dried down to a flat, matte finish that was transfer-proof. I noticed fading after five hours of wear, though it lasted closer to six hours before needing a touch-up or reapplication. The formula was slightly drying over time.

The Artist Liquid Matte formula is supposed to have “intense color” with an “ultra-matte finish” that is “long-lasting” and leaves lips feeling “soft, nourished.” In general, the formula is quite pigmented with a smooth, thin texture that still had substance to it (but felt looser, like it was almost too easily spread across the lips) as it covered the lips well and didn’t streak. The dry down time was average, and I felt like I could maneuver and perfect the edges without fear of it drying down on me. The formula dried down to a flat, matte finish that didn’t transfer and did not appear “cracked.” The wear varied from five to eight hours on me, and the formula felt slightly drying to non-drying. There was a heavy, floral scent, though–more detectable than the one in their regular lipstick range. While the tube did not seem unusually small, thin, or short, it contained a lot less product than is standard for liquid lipsticks.

Neutral Beige (107)

Make Up For Ever Neutral Beige (107) Artist Liquid Matte ($20.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, thin consistency that applied evenly across the lips. Once the product dried down, it appeared slightly “cracked” where the color separated noticably around deeper lip lines. This shade lasted for six hours before fading on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Wow. Isn’t weird how UD and MUFE are so late to the dry-down liquid lipstick trend? With that said, Neutral Beige doesn’t look too bad. Although I know I’d much prefer a cream or luminous finish for a shade such as this for myself.

I took a quick peek in the swatch gallery (I love this feature by the way, Christine!!) And I saw one shade that looks like my beloved Colourpop Tulle (the way Tulle looks on me at least!) I’ll have to check out how much these cost in CAD, as i’m scraping the sides of my Tulle!!

Colors like this make me look washed out. And I rarely can wear a liquid lipstick for too long . I usually end up putting a moisturizing lipstick or gloss on top of them.

Totally bummed by the heavy floral scent. I will have to smell these in the store. Would you say the scent faded after wear or stayed?

Christine, they sound like they are like Marc Jacobs Le Marc liquid lips. Are they? I finally got one of the Le Marcs and as I like it, I don’t love it. It wears off too soon for me but it feels nice on the lips and is non-drying.

These dry down completely so they wear longer and are more transfer-proof (you can drink water, and they’re fine; eat something oily, they will break down but won’t completely go away).

The scent faded a bit after a couple of hours, but I could detect it even after it had dried down!
