I may not be a pro-makeup artist but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate lip palettes. And the latest from Make Up For Ever is especially exciting because they combined a selection of their Rouge Artist Int3ense and Rouge Artist Natural shades into eight palettes.
These lip palettes come in compact packaging that’s easy to bring around and I figure it will give me so much convenience when I bring it on trips. Speaking of travelling, I used to bring a few different lipsticks when I travel just so that I can switch the looks around and look different in my photos, this palette is going to give me the flexibility and variety, without needing me to lug a few lipsticks along.
I love that the colours are very wearable, and also complement one another – a plus point if you like experimenting with the ombre lips look. Each palette comes with a small lip brush so there’s no need to purchase one if you don’t already have it (in fact, keep it for future use when you’re done with the palette!) This lip brush may not allow you to pick up a lot of pigment at each dip because of its small size, but the smooth bristles help the colour glide on very easily and precisely.’
Another plus point about this palette? The colours are vibrant yet the formula is non-drying. Staying power is commendable too.
My favourite of them is the Cool Pink. I’m actually very experimental when it comes to lip colours – I wear hot red, fuchsia, bright orange, deep purple – there’s nothing I wouldn’t try. While the Cool Pink palette seems rather subdued, I like the versatility of the shade and how it can glam up any look effortlessly. You’ll get what I mean from these swatches:
Besides Cool Pink, the collection also offers Warm Pink, Warm Beige, Cool Beige, Red, Coral, Brown and Plum. Each Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Lip Palette retails at SGD72 and is available at all Sephora stores and the Make Up For Ever Academy & Pro Loft located at 36 & 38 Armenian Street #01-06 & #02-06.
