When Fifty Shades of Grey hit book stores around the globe many of us were hunched over our novels devouring the dark, tantalizing love story of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. I have read all three books in the series by bestselling author E L James and just in time for Valentine’s Day the much anticipated film adaptation is hitting the big screen!
For spring 2015 Make Up For Ever has released a color collection inspired by the film and Anna’s movie makeup. The Tease Me set is packaged in a keepsake box that includes makeup secrets for recreating Anna’s behind-the-scenes looks.
There are two color themes to choose from: the Innocent Nude Lip Trio which fittingly represents Anna’s reserved, demure attitude at the beginning of the novel and the Passionate Berry Lip Trio for when things got a little hot and steamy!
I have the Passionate Berry Trio which features some of MUFE’s coveted lip favorites including:
*Aqua lip 10C
*Aqua Rouge 50 (new shade)
*Lab Shine Lip Gloss D4
The Aqua Rouge Liquid Lip Color is rich, highly pigmented and lusciously creamy. The formula glides on effortlessly to provide stunning bold pigment and wonderful coverage! This shade is a gorgeous berry-pink hue that looks stunning on the lips and is suitable for all complexions and seasons. The formula is also waterproof for long-wear and the finish is smooth, shiny and hydrating with nourishing jojoba oil.
The Liquid Lip Color is dual-ended and the other side contains a clear gloss which can be worn alone or on top of the pigment for more shine and moisture. The color adheres to the lips very well which extends the wear of the formula without the need to reapply as frequently. The glossy hue begins to fade in layers so it holds up pretty well through eating and drinking and leaves behind a bit of a stain.
The color is also very buildable for lighter looks or full coverage.
The Lip liner matches the lip color beautifully and the waterproof formula glides on smoothly to precisely shape the lips.
If you are in the mood for something a bit sheer then the Lab Shine Lip Gloss from the Diamond Collection is sure to give you a radiant pout. The sparkling formula is designed to deliver natural looking color with glistening shine.
This Collection retails for $38.00 at Sephora stores and online at Sephora.Com.
Whether you are heading out on a date or enjoying a movie night with the girls you can complete your glam look with the new Make Up For Ever Ink Liner in the purest black. This dark, sultry eyeliner is great for defining your eyes whether you are going for subtle and pretty or mysterious and bold.
The tip of the liner is very sturdy so it does not bend or flex much when shaping. This can make it a bit difficult to create a wing but not impossible. The point is thin but not overly so which works well for creating both thin and thick lines for varying effects.
I like that the applicator sits in an ink pot which is my favorite type of packaging for liquid liner. It allows me to pick up a lot of pigment without the tip drying out and I can control the color intensity. I also like that I can go over the line repeatedly after it dries to fill in spots without the color looking too thick or becoming flaky and untidy.
This formula dries quite quickly and very matte for intense, solid lines. I wore the liner all day and did not have any issues with smudging, running or fading but the formula is not waterproof so I don’t know how well it will hold up in warm weather. The Ink Liner retails for $27.00.
