I adore lipstick, its definitely one of my favourite makeup products. I love how a different colour lip can change any look instantly! One of my most reached for shades in springtime is a soft, pearly pink, and I’ve found the perfect formula in the Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural in the shade ‘N24’. What I love about this lipstick is how comfortable it feels to wear. Honestly, it feels as smooth and soft as a lip balm! It gives a gorgeous wash of sheer colour, and is so easy to apply! It has a sort of a sheen effect, I wouldn’t say its a ‘wet look’ or too glossy, rather a smooth subtle shine on the lip. As you can see from the swatch below, there’s a slight shimmer effect to the formula, but it doesn’t translate to a sparkly lip at all, in fact you can barely notice any shimmer when applied to the lips. The formula is really creamy and smooth, but it lasts well on the lips. Sure, its not the longest lasting formula, but this does wear well, and you won’t need to reapply too often throughout the day. Another bonus for me is the sleek packaging, I love the black and silver design on the tube, especially the Make Up For Ever writing on the lid.
This lipstick retails for €20.50 and you can buy it from Make Up For Ever online, or in store in Clarendon Street Dublin. For those of you in the UK, the brand is sold in Debenhams (in store and online) and its sold in Sephora in the US.
