Make Up For Ever I746 Watermelon is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark coral with a pearl finish. It is a discontinued eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.08 oz.
Make Up For Ever I746 Watermelon Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark, pinky-coral with a satin sheen. It had good color payoff with a smooth, fairly dense texture that took a heavier hand and a stiffer brush to work with (I push at the product to get it onto my brush rather than sweep). It applied fairly well to bare skin and lasted for nine hours on me, but I wish it was softer and more yielding in the pan.
The color was much pinker and less intense compared to the previous version (see side-by-side comparison).
As far as I can tell, there are still shades within the Artist Color Shadow range that aren't listed as eye safe (in the U.S.), though this information appears in the form of a "face" symbol on the underside of the physical shadow (as opposed to an "eye" symbol). This same type of symbol system was used on their loose and liquid Star Lit products, and if they were appropriate for multiple areas, the label included multiple symbols (like an eye, face, and set of lips). This shade did not have an eye symbol on its label.
