According to Dany Sanz, Founder & Artistic Director of Make Up For Ever ---
"Lipstick is to makeup what the last brush stroke is to painting... the ultimate, perfectly contained touch of color that completes the work of art. And just like in art, makeup artists need an infinite palette of colors. This is why I have developed such a wide range of new ARTIST ROUGE lipsticks, I always want to give makeup artists a profusion of shades and textures to sublimate and create their perfect piece of art."
Thank you so much Ms. Dany! You pulled an arrow straight to my heart!
That's how Mikki and I felt when we saw the Artist Rouge Lipsticks all lined up in front of us to play, swatch, mix and match!
The Artist Rouge Lipsticks are housed in metal bullet, inspired by metal palette of makeup artists. I love how the look is really refreshing and you see the shade right at the bottom of the lipstick! It also comes with an elegant satiny black cap embossed with the iconic Make Up For Ever lip logo.
They are 2 formulations to choose from --- ARTIST ROUGE CRÈME and ARTIST ROUGE MAT
The ARTIST ROUGE CRÈME boasts 8-hour wear, while ARTIST ROUGE MAT has a notable 10-hour wear.
Both have macadamia and mallow oils to help nourish the lips throughout the day. But personally, I LOVE the Mat shades but prefers the feel of Creme shades as they are less drying.
Some of the swatches I randomly did during the event.
Introducing, ARTIST ROUGE LIPSTICKS in 46 masterful shades!
31 cream shades and 15 matte shades
Now let's talk about the collaboration between Make Up For Ever and Icona Pop. They are the Swedish duo formed by Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo.
Red is for confidence, blue is for exuberance. The creamy dark blue is Aino's choice while Caroline picked Red.
