I literally ran to my local Sephora this weekend to check out Make Up For Ever’s newest lipstick formula: Rouge Artist Intense. The 50 shades range from nudes, pinks, and reds to purple, black, gold, and neon orange.
The formula is long-wearing, and comes in three finishes. I would have liked to swatch by finish, but for efficiency I swatched in groups of 10. The matte shades are 1-8, and they are… like crayons for your lips (in a good way).
There’s a state-change as you change finishes. The “pearly” shades (9-21) are frosty/shimmery and have a lot more slip to them. The “satin” shades (22-50) are creme finish (and I think they might be my favorites).
