Disclosure: I received samples to facilitate this review.
MAKE UP FOR EVER has some exciting new launches for Fall including Artist Shadow, Artist Liner, the 30 Years 30 Colors 30 Artists Palette, and all-new shades of the cult favorite Rouge Artist Intense and Rouge Artist Natural lipsticks.
I tried the Artist Shadow in two shades. The first is a creamish white--your basic color. The second is a funky bright pink. Whoa--what did I get myself into? I am too old for that! Okay, I had to try it anyway and let you all know what I thought. I found the shadows went on smoothly and I loved the way they blended. I found I had great control over how light or dark I want the look and surprised myself that I could wear such a bold color! I could make it look very natural or very bold (back in the day I would have loved this look). The Artist Shadow sells for $21. Or, if you are a little artsy, you might want the Artist Shadow Palette, made to celebrate the brand's 30th anniversary. It features a limited edition palette with 30 shadows inspired by 30 artist's journey within the industry. How fun would it be to have this?
I also tried the Artist Liner. It is a highly pigmented eye pencil. It just glides across my eyes. Unfortunately, my sample was black--a color I never wear. However, I loved how easy it was to apply and since it comes in 15 hues, I am sure I will find a color that works better for me.
