The Best & Worst of Make Up For Ever Artist Color Shadows — Diamonds

Make Up For Ever Artist Color Shadows | Diamond Finish

Phew!  I finally finished reviewing all shades of Make Up For Ever Artist Color Shadow (Diamond Finish) ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.), so how about a summary to recap how well (or poorly) they rated?

The new Diamond finish was noticeably less dense/thick, particularly on the lid, which did make it easier to spread across a larger area and easier to pickup with more types of brushes. I was worried that there would be more fallout, but I haven’t noticeable much fallout with the new Diamond shades over the eight to ten hours they last for. Most of them had good pigmentation, though there were a few that were weaker (medium to semi-opaque coverage); a shade like D410 Gold Nugget was a weaker shade before and still is while D326 Lagoon Blue is significantly less pigmented in the new formula.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Aquatic Khaki is still tempting, but I’m feeling very let down by how the quality of it dropped in the reformulation. Change can be good, but not when it comes to what MUFE did to their eyeshadows.

I agree, Nancy. A few shades are still good and maybe one or two are better than their predecessors but personally, I wish they’d kept the same finishes/formula/colours and just released them in their smaller, square pans with the new, lower price point.

So hard when much loved shades like Aquatic Khaki go from an A+ to a B…. lots of these shades have been watered down and are now disappointing. Thank you so much for the overview Christine.
