Pssst! Did you know that Make Up For Ever (MUFE) finally releases their own version of matte liquid lipsticks? recently? yes! They’re called the Make Up For Ever Artist Liquid Matte Lipsticks. So far, there’s about 6 shades that came out. One is already sold out in Sephora’s website. Hmmm, I’m feeling the whole trending lipstick vibes right now…
Hallelujah! Finally Make Up For Ever jumped into the matte liquid lipsticks bandwagon, because I had been anticipating, waiting and dreaming. MUFE is one of my favorite makeup brand and I know that their products don’t disappoint, so, I have a high expectation towards their new line of matte liquid lipsticks.
I ordered MUFE’s Artist Liquid Matte Lipsticks online, and I was drawn to the two shades that I think will look great on me, based upon my skin tone and lip pigmentation. They’re the shades 105 Rosewood and 109 Praline. Upon opening one of the tubes, I noticed a hint of vanilla and a sorta strong jasmine scent. Immediately my mind thought of another matte liquid lipstick, which is made by Ciate London. The Ciate Liquid Velvet Moisturing Matte Liquid Lipsticks (reviewed HERE). But the formulation is slightly quite different. While Ciate’s Matte Liquid Lipsticks are creamy, MUFE’s Artist Liquid Matte Lipsticks are creamy-er. Think Colourpop’s Ultra Satin Lipsticks (reviewed HERE). They’re definitely very creamy, cushiony and lightweight at the same time. It’s not like most matte liquid lipsticks that dry within seconds, the MUFE Artist Matte Liquid Lipsticks will take about 2-3 minutes to dry.
105 Rosewood – I like the way it looks on the tube, and based upon the name, I thought that this was gonna be a true mauve shade. However, this Rosewood shade didn’t look very well on me. My lips looked like wood, without the rose, LOL ???? I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s not the quality of the lipstick, it’s just the shade. I felt like I really should have chosen the 103 Warm Beige or 107 Neutral Beige shade. Now one of them is already soldout in Sephora ????. Hmmm… Well anyway, this 105 Rosewood shade has a grayish/ashy undertone that it made me look either anemic or ghastly. This shade will definitely work on someone with a lighter skin tone than mine (NC25-30).
109 Praline – Love this shade to bits and pieces. As you can see from the pic above, my lips look divine and luscious! Ooh la la! LOL! ???? (shame…) This shade works on my pigmented lips and my sorta tan skin tone. It has a warm, medium, brick, reddish and brown shade that is not too dark and too light. Reminds me a lot of Kat Von D’s Lolita. For me, this is the best shade in MUFE’s Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick line and probably one of the best shade for someone with a medium skin tone.
Verdict: If you’re used to Matte Liquid Lipsticks that dries easily upon a few seconds after application, then you might be really surprised with these Make Up For Ever Artist Liquid Matte Lipsticks because they take a while to dry and they might kinda feel sticky at first. They’re extremely creamy, almost like a mousse and is very very cushiony. Which I think is a nice thing because they fill the gap and lines on your lips, making it full and gorgeous. Eventually they dry down like any other good matte liquid lipsticks that is long lasting and reliable.
