Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense





I really like these lipsticks, the pigment on them is fabulous!!! The texture on them is pretty good and they are easy to blend.

They come in Three different finishes: Shimmer, matte and pearly. None of them in my opinion are high shine.

I bought two of them, one in #17 which is a pearly gold, its not too crazy of a gold where you might look like your using it as a costume color only, it actually could be wearable with the right lip liner.
The second color I bought is Moulin Rouge ( Sephora site says #43, but the actual lipstick just says Moulin Rouge at the bottom) The packaging on this particular one is black w a sleek shiny red to it.
The actual lip color is a vibrant red, it says it's a satin, but it looks more like a matte on my lips, and yes I hydrate my lips. If you are gonna wear them together, make sure to use a lip brush for the gold color in the center.

Another color that caught my attention is #15 and vibrant purple, the color is gorgeous, it looks a lot like Mac's Violetta lipstick if you're just looking at the tube, but I think they are different in color..... I really need to get the courage to wear it because that color is HOT!!
All my dark skinned Divas out there can pull the color off with no problem.

These retail for $19.00 each.

Mac's new super slick liquid eye liners are a must have, even if you are not a liquid liner gal.

The texture us very smooth and application is flawless, you can do a very thin or thick line.
These babies also stay put once they dry.

I find that putting a pencil eye liner under them gives the eye more definition and makes the color stand out more.

Although this are permanent a few colors were sold out at my local Mac store, and you know they don't get replenishments of new product right away. ( at least mine does not )

These retail for $17.50

Let me know what you think of them and/or your favorite colors

NARS Sephora Exclusive Lip Gloss Swatches


Swatches are Glosses and matching blushes right next to them............

LT to RT: Angelika, Super Orgasm, Albatross, Luster, Oasis

LT to RT: Angelika, Super Orgasm, Albatross, Luster, Oasis

Angelika is a cotton candy pink w silver sparkle

Super Orgasm is a peachy pink w silver glitter

Albatross is a luminous glow ( my least favorite)

Luster is a sheer golden apricot

Oasis is a pinky mauve champagne color ( My absolute favorite)



Let me start start by saying, these don't compare to the blushes, what I mean by this is, you cant mix the blush in w clear gloss and expect the color to look just like these glosses.
I know many of you had thought that but no, that is not the case here..

I really like the texture of the glosses, some have more glitter then others don't get me wrong, but I mean there not tacky feeling.
I absolutely loved Oasis and Angelika, the others where way to sheer for me, my lips are a little darker pigmented so they did not show up.

I think these are great compliment to the blushes, I hope NARS will make more of the darker colored glosses to match the darker blushes.
I would say check these out in person, I think If you like NARS you probably want to pick one of these baby's up.

Retail is $24.00 but again If you like Nars , its worth it.

Please let me know your thoughts??
