By now most of you have seen the array of high-impact, gorgeous color that is the new Artist Rouge Collection but if you haven’t, you are in for a treat! Make Up For Ever recently launched 45 show-stopping shades with 25% more pigment to accentuate and beautify your pout.
These bold pigments are available in two finishes - lustrous cream or velvet matte and the spectacular color is enriched with macadamia, mallow oil and sunflower seed wax for nourishing comfort and suppleness. Due to these skin conditioning ingredients, the lipsticks glide on buttery smooth and velvety with no drag or dryness. Both formulas are made to last up to 8 hours with the matte outliving the cream due to its superior adhesion and lower susceptibility to transfer.
If you’re wondering what makes these lipsticks so intense, the answer lies within the innovative triple milled formula that provides full-coverage and the brightest, strongest color the brand has released thus far. I did notice that the matte applies a bit more solid and opaque in the first layer but the cream has a lustrous shine and still maintains a high level of buildable pigmentation.
The tear drop tip was designed to define and customize application to all lip shapes and I love the lightweight cushiony consistency. I chose two fall-inspired shades to kick-off the first day of September. M402 is a classic brick red matte and C506 is a seductive dark purple wine that I have already received many compliments and inquiries about. The Artist Rouge Lipsticks are available at Sephora and retail for $27.00 each.
At the Generation Beauty Even hosted by IPSY earlier this summer, I received this gorgeous eye shadow duo which is also very on-trend for fall! The vibrant shimmery purple has hints of iridescent pink and the deep, smoldering red-brown creates depth and dimension in the crease. The eye shadow refills retail for $21.00 each and come in a wide variety of colors and finishes.
