Make Up For Ever Lilac (500) Artist Acrylip ($24.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a creamy finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage achieved with little product, and I'd say that semi-opaque coverage was within reach with just the barest dab of product (which also looked more semi-matte and stain-like).
It's a liquid lipstick formula that is supposed to have "buildable color intensity and shine" with a "non-sticky, non-drying" formula that includes a slanted, flocked applicator and a squeeze-tube format. I don't know that I would really describe the formula as buildable; I would say that you can apply the tiniest amount and get less coverage, though it would still be medium-to-semi-opaque and have less shine. For me, it seemed that more product yielded glossier coverage with slightly more pigmentation. Lilac had a consistency that was smooth, lightweight, non-sticky, and spread easily across the lips. It wore well for six and a half hours on the lips and left behind a strong stain. The formula felt non-drying.
The Artist Acrylip is a versatile lip formula inspired by the high pigment of acrylic paint. The stunning colors glide on with the ease of a gloss and the wear time of a lipstick. Ranging from a soft wash of color to an intensely layered look, the non-sticky, non-drying formula feels completely weightless for optimal comfort. The innovative cushion applicator delivers 10 captivating shades with precision.
