Red for confidence. Blue for exuberance. Swipe on a single color of Artist Rouge, and begin your first step to a complete metamorphosis.
Color goes hand in hand with personality. Agree? But getting your own iconic shade of lipstick can be quite a challenge, especially if choices are limited. Well, hold that thought! Do you know that MAKE UP FOR EVER introduced Artist Rouge Lipstick in 46 shades! Yup, you read that right – 46, which can express all facets of all personalities. With this new range of lipsticks, MAKE UP FOR EVER once again celebrates pro artistry and the transformative power of makeup.
About MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick
Featuring intense colors with revealingly bold, exuberant and luminous personalities, MAKE UP FOR EVER has developed innovative Show-off Color technology, a specific pigment treatment that brings to light the original purity of color.
• Triple-Grinding Technology
The color pigments are grinded three times, reducing and streamlining their size. Because of the identical, micro-fine pigments, the intensity of light reflection and the radiance of color are heightened and the color impact on lips is very powerful and immediate.
• Transparent Oil
The act of blending pigments with transparent oil reveals true color in all its purity. This avoids any altering of color properties, which occurs when pigments are blended with non-transparent oils.
MAKE UP FOR EVER selected a novel complex of waxes especially for ARTIST ROUGE. These waxes were chosen for their specific structure, and were organized like meshwork. This process helps trap pigments as the volatile oils evaporate, and results in extended makeup wear. The ARTIST ROUGE CRÈME structure was based on sunflower seeds, while Candelilla was used for ARTIST ROUGE MAT. The long-last results are impressive — under any and all conditions, ARTIST ROUGE CRÈME boasts 8-hour wear, while ARTIST ROUGE MAT has a notable 10-hour wear.
The perfect combination of macadamia and mallow oils helps nourish the lips throughout the day. Mallow oil is known for its super-emollient qualities while macadamia oil prevents skin dryness and helps retain the moisture naturally found in the lips. Working synergistically, these two oils help ARTIST ROUGE lipsticks combine comfort and long wear without drying out the lips.
Inspired by the metal palette of makeup artists, the new ARTIST ROUGE packaging reflects the brand’s professional signature look. The timelessly elegant satiny black cap is embossed with the iconic MAKE UP FOR EVER lip logo, while the brushed steel inside collar is engraved with brand letters.
The high-precision bullet design of the ARTIST ROUGE lipstick is the innovation of Dany Sanz, Founder and Artistic Director of MAKE UP FOR EVER. She sought to create a sharp, beveled drop that would ensure the most precise color application — for artists and for everyone.
My Initial Thoughts on MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick
I swatched the two MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge lipsticks that I have – C205 (Crème) and M500 (Mat)
Both cream and matte lipsticks have great color payoff! The pigments are so rich that I get the exact color on the tube in just one swipe. Both are also very comfortable to wear, but of course, as with any matte lipsticks, prepping the lips is a must! On the other hand, the creamy lipstick is really moisturizing!
So among the 46, which one is your iconic shade?
