Finally, I am reviewing two of my most recent samples received from Make Up Forever, the Artist Liquid Matte lip colors as well as the Pro Light Fusion highlighters. These have been on my testing table for a few weeks, I wanted to try them out both on myself and on set, so I can give you an assessment of my thoughts.
MUFE Artist Liquid Matte comes in SIX shades, 101 cream beige, 103 warm beige, 105 rosewood, 107 neutral beige, 109 praline, 203 cold pink. This new release is a bit of a venture into the world of matte liquid lip products as far as Make Up Forever goes. I sampled them starting with a two layer application on hydrated lips, (I highly recommend making sure your lips are exfoliated and as smooth textured as possible, no skin or signs of dryness, else you risk having poor finish). Also, to add an extra touch, I always go around my lip with a smudge of concealer on a q-tip or a fine brush, to make sure the lines look as perfect as possible.
To give you an idea of how well MUFE Artist Liquid Matte stayed on, I had lunch and still looked really good, not smudged or dry. To be really honest, I am not the biggest matte fan but this MUFE Artist Liquid Matte won me over with its wearability, texture and color payoff. I am wearing #103.
Also on my LOTD, I decided to wear Make Up Forever Pro Light Fusion in gold. There are two colors in this release, one is pink for lighter to medium complexions and a gold for medium to deeper tones. With highlighters I love layering them once I am done and using my fingers rather than a brush. Plus the texture of these powders is velvety and blends almost like a cream. I had the opportunity to use these highlighters at work, lovely finish on camera and in real life.
