Make Up For Ever Rose Flair, Upbeat Mauve, Explosive Peach Rouge Artist Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Rose Flair (170)

Make Up For Ever Rose Flair (170) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020)Make Up For Ever Rose Flair (170) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020) ($23.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddened plum with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture felt smooth and lightweight with more of a velvet-cream hybrid feel, so it had more of a gliding consistency but had light shine.

It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly to my lips. It stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$23.00/0.11 oz. – $209.09 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to “blur, smooth, and hydrate” with “intensity of a matte and the comfort of a cream” and delivers “ultra-pigment[ation].” The consistency reminded me of the more new-school “matte” formulas that feel velvety without wetness/shine–the ones that feel more silicone-heavy and primer-like, which are often thinner, too. I’d say that the new Rouge Artist formula has a little more traditional creaminess, so there was a satin shine (which was as marketed–satin finish!).

The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and thin without feeling clingy. In the close-up photos, there were several shades that looked like there were little bits scattered on my lips, almost like it had pilled, though I didn’t feel it when I pressed my lips together and couldn’t see it in person.

They had mostly opaque to opaque color coverage in a single layer. Most shades applied evenly and sat well enough on my lips, though there were some that emphasized my lip lines slightly. They wore for four to six hours on me with some of the very rich, deeper shades lasting a little longer than that. The formula felt mostly non-drying to lightly hydrating to me.

There was a sweet, slightly floral scent that was noticeable on for the first few minutes, but I didn’t notice any taste.

Explosive Peach (302)

Make Up For Ever Explosive Peach (302) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020)Make Up For Ever Explosive Peach (302) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020) ($23.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that didn’t build up that well. The consistency was somewhat emollient, thin, and lightweight with more of a velvety glide, though not quite as silicone-heavy as is typical of that type of formula.

This shade did not apply as evenly as other shades in the range, and it seemed to yield more pronounced pilling/bunches of product compared to other shades as well. The color lasted decently for three hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating.
