Make Up For Ever S814 Light Rosewood Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium, peachy coral with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff in one layer, which was somewhat buildable, but the texture was thinner and on the drier side, so I found it harder to pickup product on my brush and really build it up on the lid without a primer. It blended out decently but could have been better. On me, this shade lasted for nine hours on me. The prior formula was lighter and brighter with less shimmer (see comparison swatches).
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.
