The Best & Worst of Make Up For Ever Artist Face Colors

Make Up For Ever Artist Face Colors - Blushes
Make Up For Ever Artist Face Colors – Blushes

Make Up For Ever Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is available in three types–Highlighter, Sculpting, and Blush–with a total of 34 shades available. The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with a “long-lasting finish.” The range is split into three types–Highlighters, Sculpting Powders, and Blushes–that is easy to determine by the first letter of the shade name (H for Highlighter, S for Sculpting, and B for Blush). There are three finishes–matte, shimmer, and pearl but was less obvious. In fact, the majority of the “matte” shades were more like semi-matte or natural matte where there were no distinctive shimmer particles but they seemed to take on the natural finish of the skin, which gave the “mattes” a particularly seamless finish on the skin but might be dewier on oilier skin types than desired. None of the 34 shades available were frosted or metallic except three of the highlighters (H100, H106, H312).

The pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque, depending largely on the shade, though they were always buildable if they were not opaque in a single layer. Some of the deeper, more matte shades were less forgiving and took more effort to diffuse and blend, even when I used a lighter hand or a more feathery brush. The texture was smooth, velvety, and moderately dense without any powderiness or dustiness in the pan. The formula has lasted between eight and ten hours on me.

Last time I checked, my local Sephora didn’t have all of these on the shelves yet; will go back. I am impressed by MUFE’s innovation and quality with this line.

Love these, I have some of the worse performing shades (although with these, they’re still pretty dang good). I especially love B500, but since I have fairly light skin, I have to barely touch my brush to the pan otherwise it gets overboard fast. Love the plum-ie color for fall though.

I do believe that this new line of MUFE’s has outdone NARS’ Unfiltered palettes (which I own and think are the best). Hmmm, I’m not into blushes, but since MUFE has colors that aren’t in the NARS’ palettes, I do believe I’ll have to pick a few are these rave reviews. Never seen so many “A’s” in one article. 😉
