Creative Violet (212)

Make Up For Ever Creative Violet (212) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020) ($23.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark purple with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a long way, while the product applied evenly over my lips and didn’t settle into my lip lines.

There was a little bit of streakiness around the edge of my lips, but it wasn’t enough to be apparent to my eye in person. The texture felt lightly creamy, smooth, and thin with a little bit of velvetiness. It wore nicely for five hours and felt lightly moisturizing 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.

Dashing Plum (214)

Make Up For Ever Dashing Plum (214) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020) ($23.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light purple with warmer, pink undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque color coverage that adhered well to my lips, though it was more prone to emphasizing my lip lines just a touch.

The consistency felt smooth, lightly creamy with more of a velvety glide than the wetness of true slip. It lasted well for four and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating while worn.

Passionate Fig (220)

Make Up For Ever Passionate Fig (220) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020) ($23.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a deep, eggplant purple with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that appeared with grainy bits all over my lips, so it was uneven, streaky, and prone to getting into my lip lines.

The texture had moderate slip, though it felt lightweight and comfortable to wear. This shade stayed on decently for four and a half hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
