Sneak Peek: Make Up For Ever Artist Palettes Photos & Swatches

Make Up For Ever #1 and #2 Artist Palettes
Make Up For Ever #1 and #2 Artist Palettes

For summer, there are two new, limited edition Make Up For Ever Artist Palettes ($42.00 for 0.54 oz.); one available in neutral hues and the other in a mix of brighter shades. All of the shades are shades available in the permanent Artist Shadow range, and they all swatched and appeared consistent with the singles I have (in fact, a few seemed even creamier!). The Artist Shadow formula remains a favorite for me, and it’s honestly a formula that has spoiled me when it comes to really easy-to-use, intensely pigmented, long-wearing eyeshadow.

The palettes had a surprising heft to them, though they are slim and don’t seem overly large. Each palette has a large mirror, though it doesn’t stand up on its own. The side that holds the eyeshadows seems to have most of the weight, which led me to expect it to be magnetic and allow for the eyeshadows to be removed (like last holiday’s case), but unfortunately, they seemed glued in. I tried using tweezers to remove four shades (at random) from each palette, but nothing was budging. I hope Make Up For Ever will consider making future Artist Palettes interchangeable, because I think that makes them more versatile, and then you can rearrange to suit your needs over time or for a trip. The other aspect worth pointing out is that most shades have noticeable shimmer; there are no official mattes in the palettes, but there are three satins.

Each pan is 24mm in diameter, and visually, they appear about the same size as your average eyeshadow pan (think MAC, Urban Decay, Makeup Geek), though it is very slightly smaller (MAC eyeshadows are 26mm in diameter). The pans contain 0.06 oz. a pop, whereas a full-sized Artist Shadow contains 0.08 oz. (and retails for $21!). The value of the palette is $141.75 based on $21/0.08 oz., though Make Up For Ever has a discounting system if you buy two or three (plus the coordinating case) individuals at a time. Based on that, you could get three for $44 or $44/0.24 oz., which would give the palette a value of $99. Another way to look at it is the cost of purchasing all nine individually, and presuming you buy in trios to maximize your discount, you would spend $132. As long as you’d use at least three shades in it, then you’ll pay less than purchasing the three as singles (you would get more product, but a little goes a long way with these).

I’ve been slowing working my way through all the Artist Shadows, so I’m hoping to review these palettes (and their single counterparts, if any differences) soon. You can also see swatches grouped together in the Swatch Gallery for the #1 (Nudes You Need) and #2 (Electric) palettes if you prefer a gallery view.

The natural palette looks good, all those taupe shades are calling my name! And the palette is a nice value in my opinion!

These palettes look amazing! Too bad I have a million neutral palettes, or the first one would be an immediate purchase online! Ugh, so pretty!

You’re always so thorough, and this isn’t even a full review! Makes my shopping much easier 🙂 Thank you!!

Very nice. The nude is definitely too warm for me, but Taupe Grey is gorgeous. I think that’s part of the single line, so I may have to look it up. Peacock is just stunning.

Ohhhh….. I do not need anymore eyeshadow palettes!!! But these look so pretty!!! I look at the neutral palette and say “No I don’t need it!” but when I see your eye with it blended so beautifully….maybe I do need it! AHHHH!!! Maybe I should get the colorful one…. that will allow me to venture out into unknown territories! LOL

They’re soooooo blendable! I mean, a look like this might take 20-30 minutes with another brand, but with MUFE it’s so much easier.

Hi Christine,

My brush (Paula Dorf natural hair e/s brush) does not pick up some of the colors in my MUFE palettes, especially the iridiscent and diamond colors ( D562 Taupe Platinum ). Do you experience this problem? What what you recommend I do?

(I wonder if others have also experienced this problem)

I haven’t – I use MAC 239s primarily and haven’t had any issues. You could try using a flatter or firmer brush if you have one!

I had problems with my MUFE Artist Shadows getting kind of packed down in the pan so that they became difficult to pick up. I was extremely disappointed about this, because I adore the colors! Then a MUA at a MUFE store demonstrated (with a fairly, flat, firm brush) picking up the product by *pushing* the brush into it instead of *pulling* it across the pan like I normally do, and that works like a charm for me! One thing about MUFE, many of the products really are designed with professional MUAs in mind. They do have their MUAs visit Sephora stores, though, if there’s no MUFE store near you you can find out when the MUFE rep is scheduled to visit your closest Sephora store and get all your questions about the products answered.

LOVE the look you did with the Electric palette! The purple is insanely gorgeous.

I bought the nude and haven’t played with it yet. So excited. I bought some of the artists shadows at the IMATS and am obsessed.

So, if I was interested in a palette for bright, bold shades, would you recommend this MUFE Electric Palette, or the Urban Decay one? I feel like while the lighter shades in this MUFE one are nice, and make it more of an “all-in-one” palette, I don’t really need that for my personal use.

If you like less shimmery finishes, Urban Decay, just keep in mind that the “brights” in both palettes aren’t eye-safe. The fuchsia and purple in MUFE’s palette (the ones that I swatched with a heavy and blended out swatch) are technically blushes. I find MUFE easier to use, though.

Two of the shadows in the Electric palette are already on my wishlist (purple and black purple), so I think it’s worth it to buy the palette and get a few more to try!

These summer collections are killing me! Can’t possibly afford everything but these palettes are gorgeous! I have a feeling the neutral will sell out quick. How do you like or compare this to MACx15?

Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows are typically better than MAC eyeshadows, IMO. MAC has great eyeshadows, but a great MAC eyeshadow is really a standard MUFE eyeshadow. I think it depends more on what you’re looking for. MAC palettes offer 15 shades and have a greater variety in finishes.

I really wish I could take some from each palette (and add a matte highlighting shade)! I have dupes for several of the neutrals and probably wouldn’t get much use from a few in Electric. But there are some from each palette that I NEED.

I’m just not a fan about how these are compiled :/ I think they could use more mattes (I mean, at least one in each!) and I really don’t like that they put two non eye safe ones in the Electric palette. Like the UD Electric palette, it seems disingenous/lazy to include non-eye safe products in something clearly marketed as an eyeshadow palette.

Though I will say that MUFE included look books for each AND the look book for the Electric one showed them used as blushes and not on eyes. Of course, I would have rather them chosen two other eyeshadows instead.

That’s nice to hear at least! But like, they’re not set aside at all so at first glance, they’re all eyeshadows. I wouldn’t have had a problem if they were set apart so they were more clearly blushes. I agree that they could’ve easily included two eyeshadows instead. It’s not like this range is narrow/small!

I totally agree, Sarah! I don’t like how many brands have been putting in brights that seem like eyeshadows unless you actually read fine print and whatnot. I think there should be Artist Blush and Artist Shadow, and the two should be clearly separated when you purchase them. I have the same issue with UD, ColourPop, Ardency Inn, etc. — and it seems like more brands are doing this. I’d rather they work together to get the ingredients FDA approved for use on the eye!

I totally, totally agree. Especially because some of the “blushes” in the MUFE range really don’t look like they would be unsafe for eyes (I think there’s some peachy colors that I was surprised to see be non-safe). But it just seems lazy to me, like they don’t want to promote them as blushes or separate them in the palette, so they just do an “Oh well, it’s not our fault if they don’t read the fine print!” to get away with putting them in eyeshadow palettes. And there’s definitely safe versions of dye out there–Fyrinnae is an indie brand that has some fantastic bright shades that are eye-safe. I just don’t understand why brands seem to be so reluctant to separate things.

Oh, yeah, MUFE has a few “Huh?” shades. I remember starting to see “Blush” show up on some unexpected shades and had to start taking more photos so I wouldn’t forget, LOL!

Even now, I’ve tested the majority of the shades, and the overwhelming majority that I haven’t are ones that I can’t remember if they’re blush or eyeshadow, so I’ve been cross referencing them when I sit down to test the remaining shades, haha.

which shades are not eye safe in the electric palette? I purchased that from Sephora VIB Sale so i want to make sure i don’t use it on my eye 🙁

I believe they are listed on the back of the compact in fine print, but here is a copied version from Sephora:

“Precautions:
-Slowburn, Savage, Jilted, and Urban are not intended for immediate eye area.”

And from Urban Decay’s website:

“(WARNING: Slowburn, Savage, Jilted and Urban contain a colorant that is not approved for the eye area in the US, Canada and Brazil.) “

And I just realized that maybe you were talking about THE ELECTRIC PALETTE FEATURED IN THIS POST (*bangs head against desk*).

It’s just the two: ME910 Electric Magenta and S924 Purple – you can see it says “Fard a Joues / Blush” on the back.

And a more exhaustive list:

“The following colors were created for use on cheeks: Frosted Peach, Mahogany, Mandarin, Rust, Pumpkin, Copper Red, Watermelon, Electric Coral, Coral Pink, Golden Pink, Electric Purple, Tangerine, Poppy, Milk Toffee, Peach, Bisque, Salmon, Orange,Tomato, Coral, Grenadine,Tea Pink, Light Rosewood, Purple, Canyon, Apricot, Auburn, Flesh-colored Pink, Rosewood, Dark Purple Pink, Eggplant”

I could be wrong, but I’m under the impression that most of these are considered eye-safe pretty much everywhere except in the U.S., that there is a specific pigment or dye used in them that a small percentage of peoples’ eyes are sensitive to. The FDA seems unlikely to approve something like that, but the products are eye-safe for the vast majority of people — if you’re willing to run the risk of trying it out near your eye to see if you’re one of the sensitive ones. I use the pink/purple shades in the UD Electric palettes as eye shadows with no problem.

Of course, I can’t tolerate the vast majority of skin care products, foundations and powders on the market because my facial skin turns bright red if exposed to almost any fragrant ingredient. Now, why the FDA does not dis-approve the use of fragrance in skin care products (and even mascara!) when so many of us are sensitive to that, I’ll never know! It must have to do with what they’ve been specifically tasked, legislatively, to regulate. Pigments and dyes are two of those things.

That’s how I understood it, too. A small amount of people have a sensitivity to a red colorant. I think makeup companies should be more upfront about it, though.

I have sensitive eyes and skin, and I’ve used all the UD Electric Palette Colors on my eyes with no problems.

I’ve used MUFE Electric Magenta, Electric Purple, Tomato, and Tangerine on my eyes and cheeks with no issues.

I am allergic to all mascaras except: Almay, Physician’s Formula, Tarte, Benefit They’re Real and UD Perversion. Fragrance and waterproofing agents are the biggest culprits for me.

Even pigments and dyes aren’t disclosed properly. Look at how MUFE uses “may contain” and/or “+-” with some pigments. I’m allergic to chromium oxide pigments CI-77288 and CI-77289 and MUFE seems to use this “may contain” and “+-” wording when they should state whether the pigments are indeed in there or not. And yes, I’ve contacted them and they said to “read the label.” I avoid MUFE makeup now because of this irresponsibility.

that’s crazy! if i didn’t read this i probably wouldn’t have known they were not eye safe…as far as i knew it was an eye shadow palette so i wouldn’t have even thought to read the fine print stating shades are not eye safe! you think these big makeup companies would be better about this kind of thing & be more aware for their customers safety.

I’m soooo glad I bought the electric palette!! I would pay that much just for Peacock and Black Purple alone! Thanks so much for the great review 🙂

These look great. I do hope MUFE comes out with more kits like this, as it’s so much more affordable. I bought a bunch of Artist Shadows last week in grays and khakis, and even with the Sephora sale, buy 3 discount deal, and ebates cash back, it still adds up quickly. I’ve only tested 2 of them, but they are great so far.

They are so pricey as singles, lol! Worth it relative to how much you can pay for other singles, but there are so many!

I saw these on the last day of the sale and nearly pulled the trigger on the neutral one! I don’t have anything by MUFE and I’ve heard great things about their new shadows! I have a whole drawer of neutral shadows, though, so I held off. Those swatches, though, are gorgeous!! I might just need it anyway – it is a different formula from anything I own, after all. I’ll wait for the review. 😉

I have the I-528, D652, from the nudes and also the ME 700 from the brights in full size singles and can’t agree how gorgeous they are! They are one of my favorites. The palette looks worth purchasing for those who don’t have these shades. I would pick two or three more to add in full size for myself since I have some already. Loved the swatches!

I purchased the neutral shadow palette on the last day of their VIB sale – total impulse purchase and I already own one of the shades, but so happy to have this palette. All the shades are so pretty but I am surprised at the gray shade, so creamy! Thanks for breaking down all the price/oz, makes me feel like the purchase is totally justified! ha!

It is a great buy, I think! 🙂 Lots of colors and it’s one of the best eyeshadow formulas on the market, IMO!

this comment is sort of dumb, but at some point I think you italicized something in the post but didn’t end the html command to italicize so now the bottom half of the page is in italics, including the comments. Just fyi

This was the last order I snuck in at the last minute during the sale! Also, I got 3 of the new Urban Decay glosses, but my Liar seems to be defective, as it gooped out all over the place when I opened it today. Will need to exchange in store when they get the new line in.

Anywho, I bought both palettes, as I’ve been interested in trying MUFE shadows for a while. You love them so much, and I thought these would get me the most bang for my buck. So glad I pulled the trigger! I was surprised that they felt heavier than they looked. I do wish they were easily removable, as you mentioned the holiday palette was.

Now to just figure out how to use that bright pink in the color palette. Feel free to use it in a look when you get to the review! 😉 One of my challenges this spring/summer is to use colors outside my norm. I think ColourPop is what did it. So many fun colors to try at such a low price!

Thanks for putting up swatches so quickly. All the shades are gorgeous, even the Taupe Gray. (I’m cringing at myself for liking a straight-on brown-gray taupe, but MUFE makes it attractive.) I ordered both the last day of the Sephora VIBRouge sale and 8% back from Ebates, so they weren’t as hard on the wallet as they could have been. They just shipped, so I should have them in my grubby little hands soon. I know I keep saying I don’t need more nudes/neutrals, but these are too good to pass up. I’m surprised the pans are glued in. I was hoping they would just be set in foam like the Studio Case. It was so easy for me to pop those out and stick them in a small Zpalette for convenience. It would have been awesome to have been able to mix and match them with these, if MUFE had gone with magnetic palettes.

No problem, Rachel! The value is so good here that I really wanted to see if the quality lived up to the originals.

I bought both of these on the last day of the Sephora sale. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the palettes. I do wish there was a way to get the pans out of the palettes so I could join them with my other mufe shadows. But,the deal was not one I could pass up,even if I do have a couple of repeats. I hope Mufe puts more of these palettes out. These are by far my favorite formula!

I really hope they’ll make them removable in the future! I thought that was one of the best parts about the Studio Case from the holidays. It would have been SO GOOD if that had been the case here, since these are a great pan size (not too small, not too large).

Very true! 🙂 Now, if they allowed you to move them around, I’d be more willing to forgive the total lack of mattes – since then you could truly mix and match over time!

Oh my! If I didn’t have some of these colors already or ones that are close (as in in the same number range but just slightly lighter or darker) I would be all over these. MUFE has become my favorite eye shadow. They are just so easy to work with! That Taupe Grey is perhaps one of my favorites out of the ones I own so I know a lot of people that bought the palette will love it.

Since I’m a huge fan of the MUFE Artist Shadows, I was super-excited to be able to purchase both of these on the last day of Sephora’s VIB sale. They even came in two days and I used them this morning. Mine are as fantastic as the individual shadows, too. I tried using one (ME-910, the hot pink) as blush for the first time today and was amazed at how flatteringly it applied and how easy it was to blend — I usually stick to more subtle blushes, but this is easily gorgeous. I’m going to go ahead and try the purple!

I did get a couple of dupes in the neutral palette; I-544 was also in the Studio Case, and I-514 and S-556 were in the 50 Shades of Gray set. I don’t mind, though, given the value of the set and the fact that all three are workhorse neutral shades. Most of the neutrals are not so warm that they’re a challenge for me to wear (I would have loved more cool neutrals, but, those seem to be rather rare these days… )

Mine are definitely glued in, which is a bit of a shame, really (I have some very strong magnets that normally make the MUFE shadows leap out of their palettes). It would be both fun and useful to be able to re-arrange the shades within and between the two palettes, especially since two of the pans contain blush. The 50 Shades of Gray palette was magnetized only.

Thanks for posting news about these so quickly. I had seen the neutral palette pop up on Sephora’s web site, but had missed the electric one, which is, of course, my favorite!

I hope we won’t see TOO many repeats (especially not the same ones) over and over again through these palettes (presuming they release more, since they are listing Vol. 1 and Vol. 2). They definitely could have skipped Golden Beige being in both, IMO!

If I didn’t have loads of nudes, I’d get the nude from MUFE. I’m a bit “maybe” when it comes to the Electric. I love some of the colours (I love them all, but not on me) but am not so fond of others. I guess I’ll wait and see how the price will be here, if we even get the palettes.
I do love the pigmentation they all have, it is quite fantastic, actually!

Hopefully these will do well enough for MUFE to put out future volumes – and maybe one of those will appeal to you more 🙂

Now that ‘Nudes You Need’ is really pulling me in! The look you did with it has me practically sold on it. It’s a fantastic look, Christine! Only problem is, I have only barely made a dent in all my other neutral palettes, ie; UD Naked 2, Lorac Pro and Unzipped. I tend to go to my neutral MAC eyeshadows?

Whoa – Onyx and Black Purple both gave me pause. How can I be stopped in mid-scroll by a black eyeshadow?! If a black shadow can be beautiful, this is certainly the one.

My word, those colours are beautiful. And your eye looks are stunning Christine. I even like the neutrals palette and I normally don’t. No wonder you love MUFE Artist shadows.

Just got the #1 Palette in today! I’m so excited to see all the swatches–it looks better than I thought. I’ll have to play around with it tomorrow–never used MUFE shadow before.

OMG! Wow! I’m out of words! The neutral palette is the most amazing neautral palette I’ve ever seen! Pigmentation and quality wise, hands down! These 2 palettes I think will be most worth it! Unbelievable!

The bright one is a maybe, assuming it even becomes available in the UK. There are very few places to get MUFE here and it’s one of the brands that Sephora US won’t ship here. Although the palette being fixed/not amendable does make me more meh about it. It might be better value for money but I think I’d probably use the shades I do want more if they were in three-pan palettes that I could chop and change as I wanted. Gotta factor usability into the VFM equation!

Makeup Forever is definitely one of my favourites for reliable, pigmented, worth the money products! I don’t have any of the new formulation eyeshadows yet but these look great! The palette is a great value, even at Canadian prices.

My only complaint is they are quite shimmery and not any mattes for blending.

I am obsessing over the nudes palette. I’ve been wanting to try these shadows since their release and I haven’t been able to decide which shades to take the plunge on. For the price, this palette is most definitely a winner. The brighter palette looks fun too, but on a day to day I’m definitely more natural. I don’t know if I missed it or if it wasn’t mentioned, but when are these beauties available, and are the limited edition?

Christine, I usually (always!) wait for your swatches/reviews prior to purchasing, however, I couldn’t resist and bought the Electric palette on the last day of the Sephora sale 🙂 I’ve already received and used the palette and couldn’t be happier – the colors are intense, highly pigmented, easy to blend and just downright beautiful! The Electric vs Nudes palette appealed to me, as “nudes”, in general, tend to not show up on my lids, nor do they complement my eye color (light Mediterranean skin, brown eyes). Thank you for the example look – the combination you chose is absolutely gorgeous on you!

Well, I mean, technically I’ve swatched and reviewed a bunch, right? 😉

I’m so glad you’re enjoying your palette, Ellen!!

I bought both of these on the last day of Sephora’s sale after seeing your swatches as a Hail Mary purchase, LOL. They look great and thank you for the swatches!

Wow these swatches look amazing and so creamy!!!! I just got these palettes a few weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to dig into them yet. You have me all excited!

are there any repeats to the 30 artist 30 year pallet that came out ? I have already ordered them… I hope theres not to many if there is…lol

I picked up the nude palette on the last day of the sale. Was just delivered to me this morning and I am regretting not grabbing the artistic one while I was at it. I’m in love. I was expecting the pans to be about the same size as in the holiday set and clearly I was wrong. Great way to expand your MUFE collection. I hope these do well and they continue putting sets out.
