After attending the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick launch, I knew that I had to get my hands on those beautiful lippies.
Let’s take a look!
The Artist Rouge lipsticks are housed in a matte black lipstick tube, with the MAKE UP FOR EVER logo on the cap. When you remove the cap, the engraved silver base is revealed. The lipstick tubes themselves have a bit of weight to them, so if it gets lost in your purse, be sure to check the very bottom of your bag.
‘C506’ is a satin finish, deep berry merlot.
‘C105’ is a satin finish, nude pink.
I’m just going to say it. These lipsticks are GLORIOUS. Pigmentation is off the wall – one swipe! After 2 hours of wear there was only some slight fading in the centre of my lips, as well as near my cupid’s bow, and on the corners of my lips – but it wasn’t very noticeable. The formula is very comfortable. It feels similar to my all-time favourite formula, Maybelline’s Creamy Mattes, just not as thick. The darker colour is perfect for fall, and is great if you want to add a spin to the bold matte lip trend. The nude is a perfect every day colour and could easily become my go-to lipstick.
The only downsides are the fact that they are not transfer-proof, and the darker colour, C506, majorly stained my lips after I took it off (which might be a plus for some people).
