Make Up For Ever M842 Wine Artist Color ShadowMake Up For Ever M842 Wine Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium-dark, berry purple with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty consistency. The eyeshadow was fairly easy to work with as it blended out nicely along the edges and could be built up but was a product I'd use over primer for maximum ease of use. It wore well for nine and a half hours before fading noticeably on me.
The previous version was lighter and more muted (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.
