Make Up For Ever’s NEW Artist Rouge Creme Lipstick

I had the wonderful opportunity (as I see so many other ladies did too) to test out the new Make Up Forever Artist Rouge Lipsticks. I received three to test complimentary of Influenster, and I tried two of the shades out this weekend. The colours are gorgeous, there’ s no doubt about that. I was more concerned with the wear and feel of these, so I figured two to testΒ would be enough.

On My Lips

These glide on so effortlessly and they almost remind me of a gel. The texture is so smooth it’s even beyond creamy. That being said they also sit on the lips very comfortably. The smell is minuscule and they don’t smell like anything particular except maybe something slightly sweet. These lipsticks are very pigmented and feel absolutely luxurious on the lips. Make Up For Ever is known for being a preferred brand of makeup artists and always very pigmented. I believe they said these were 25% more pigmented than their original Artiste Rouge formula. TheseΒ remind me most of Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche lipsticks, with more than 45 impressive colour options.

These wear decently throughout the day. I did not receive the matte ones but I received the satin finish ones, so I definitely wasn’t expecting an all day wear. They did come off for me during brunch. But it’s brunch, so it’s totally worth it…

C211, C502, and C404

I don’t have too much about the colours to say, so let’s just talk about them all together! These are all gorgeous, and that’s pretty much the bottom line. C211 is a beautiful cool toned dark mauvy pink. This colour looks a lot lighter on the stick and turned in to a beautiful dark mauve on my lips. A very unique colour for sure. Also a unique colour is C502 which is a light cool toned purple. I never EVER thought I’d like a purple on myself and I avoided this trend at all costs, but I love this colour on myself. The last colour I received was a vibrant red in C404. To be totally honest I haven’t worn this one yet. Red takes some commitment to wear because you’ll be scrubbing it off for days, am I right ladies?? So I haven’t made the jump yet, but the swatch is lovely.

Final Thoughts

These are really luxurious high quality lipsticks from Make Up For Ever. They are definitely more pigmented than their last release, yet they still wear comfortably. I will definitely be sporting these this fallΒ and I cannot wait to wear the purple one again! Packaging is ‘decent’ and pretty plain, but that’s what I would expect of Make Up For Ever. The tube is very sturdy though which I love!

Would I Purchase These?

Yes I would purchase these. They are definitely worth the money and I would love to try out the matte. I think $22 is a nice price point for these. The Amuse Bouche ones are $26 at Sephora. I will say though, I do think Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche line inches these out. Try both and see what you think!

    Wow! That purple looks beautiful on you, girl, so flattering on your skin tone! I’ve been loving the look of purple and blue lips, too, but have yet to try them on myself, I just don’t know if it would look all that great on me, haha. I’ve never tried any of Makeup Forever’s products before, but of course I’ve heard such great things about the brand in general. I’m glad you’re happy with the wear and color pigmentation of these lilppies, all of which look great on you! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great rest of the week!

      Aw thank you Jalisa! My skin tone is a bit cooler so I think that’s why it works (yay). Definitely give these a go, as they are fantastic. Have a great week as well! Already to Wednesday yaaaaassss! πŸ˜‰

  • Something about that sharp point of a brand new lippie. Am I right? This grey tone shade is stunning, though I’ve never personally tried it? Perhaps I need to work up the courage? (;

    • Emily

      Yes! There is literally nothing more satisfying than a brand new tube of lipstick haha. It definitely takes courage! I am not a naturally bold person, but I gave it a go and ending up really liking it. πŸ™‚

    Damn girl! You pulled off the pale purple shade beautifully! I have one that is similar to that shade, more lilac and it made me look jaundice. LOL!

      They don’t wear too long. I’d say maybe four hours or so. I mean that’s still pretty good. But if you eat anything then kiss these babies goodbye haha. I bet their matte ones wear much longer. πŸ™‚

    I’m saving mine to fully test out in Paris but am finding the colors a bit intimidating. From the quick test I did of them I was also really impressed with the smoothness of them. They don’t feel like they will dry out my lips like most do which is great!

    • Emily
      5 months ago

      Ah that makes sense. When I opened them they seemed a bit intimidating too. The are really pigmented. I was surprised how good they looked on me though! Haha. And you’re right, they don’t dry out my lips at all etiher! It’s amazing.

    The colors looks so lovely, and especially the purple one on you! So gorgeous! And the pigmentation looks lovely too, love the depth of the colors and the silver tone in the purple one. And can I just say that your eyebrows are on fleek?! So so good, haha I want them! Hope you’re having a lovely week girl! Xx

      Same! I did notice the product gets used pretty quickly with only a few swipes though. But $22 ain’t bad at all for the quality.
