Lipsticks of the Day: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense 53 and 54 + Mix

I posted about Make Up For Ever's New Spring Color Collection and I told you guys how I got 2 lipstick shades from this collection and loved mixing both lipsticks to create a third shade!  Some of you wanted to see it so I did it all because of LOVE for my dear AMW friends! :D  

Keep in mind that my lips are highly pigmented so I may look like I'm not wearing any lipsticks at all, or maybe you can't see the difference unless you look closely!

For better reference, here's a photo for comparison --- L-R Shade 53, Shade 54 and Mixed 53 and 54

Which one is your favorite?

Housed in a slick black tube, I like the simplicity of the packaging.

Rouge Artist Intense 
Shade 53 "Pearly Pink Copper" for fans of solar looks
Shade 54 "Pearly Golden Pink" for lovers of cold tones

What I love is how the stickers are exactly the same shade as the lipsticks so I won't get confused when they are together with the rest of my lipstick collection.

 Shade 53 Pearly Pink Copper
I personally prefer this shade over 43 as this suits better for users with warm skin tone.  This is definitely MLBB (My Lips But Better) shade and it does have a "copperish" effect thus giving a "fuller lips effect".  

With one swipe, the color is opaque so it doesn't show up as much on my pigmented lips but with 2-3 swipes, it gives a very nice effect like I have a spotlight shone directly on my lips wherever I go.

Shade 54 Pearly Golden Pink
 Funny how I think I look pale and sick with this shade (in person) but upon seeing this photo, this shade photographs well even if this has a blue based tone (thus works much better with users with cool skin tone).

Now, the Make Up Artist in me wanted to create a 3rd shade because I always like to mix and match and be creative!  So I like to apply a layer of Shade 53 as base and apply Shade 54 only at the center to give this nice gradient effect.

Not bad right? 
I actually wore this color on several occasions and I get asked: 
 "Are you wearing a pink or coral lipstick?" 
I always LOVE the confusion!

  1. if they're not only that pricey i will surely get one =)

    1. I know what you mean! Tipong pinagiipunan to if you are starting out on makeup!

    2. hahay.. uu nga po ms nikki.. why does makeup should be so pricey haha =)

  2. Yey pinagsama na yung 2 colors! At talagang may confusion? ang saya, hihi! I once tried a purple lipstick from avon kaso 'di ko keri so i combined it with a pink mac lippie, medyo naging ok yun itsura pero tamad ako gumamit ng 2 lipsticks at a time kaya pinamigay ko nlang yun purple, haha!

  3. When I attended MUFE's workshop, I was sooo lucky to be given a cute deluxe sample of that lipstick. I forgot the shade. It's like a warm red with a subtle touch of maroon. They're super pigmented and lasts for a long time. (^...^)

    1. wow, good for yoU! at least workshops give out samples for you to test :D

  4. Lovely post and photos. New post on my blog ;). Keep in touch, pls. Kiss


  5. They both look lovely, but they look even better together. What an interesting shade they create.
