M103

Make Up For Ever M103 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich color payoff that applied beautifully to the lips with smooth, even coverage that had that more matte finish but did not appear flat or chalky on the lips. I felt like the formula was creamier than past mattes–more like a hybrid between the Cream and Matte formulas (see my original overview). It glided on easily but adhered for solid, five-hour wear. The formula felt non-drying while worn.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.12 oz. - $183.33 Per Ounce

The formula 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.

M104

Make Up For Ever M104 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, brownish burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It did not appear matte–there was a definite sheen going on–and took two hours before the shine worn down to something more matte. The texture of the lipstick was lightweight, smooth, and creamy enough to glide on without tugging but did not feel slippery. It had good color coverage, though it was not fully opaque in one layer. This shade stayed on well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. There was slight color that gathered in my lip lines over time.
