MAKE UP FOR EVER | Lip Fever Collection – Passion Pinks

MUFE Lip Fever opener

 

From the brand that has elevated colour saturation to a whole new level, MAKE UP FOR EVER has recently launched the Lip Fever Collection – Passion Pink, a trio of limited edition products from their highly coveted ‘lip repertoire‘ of products. If you’re a bit pink-phobic like I am, then you really owe it to yourself to give these a look as I can pretty much guarantee you’ll fall in love with at least one. Maybe two. Possible all three, even.

MUFE 920 Artist Lip Balm

920 Flushed Cherry Artist Lip Balm (CAN $25.00) | First up, is this lip balm made with Polyglyceride Esters in the formula that “provide a buttery, gliding effect with triple benefits by adding colour, comfort & shine“. Housed in a retractible chubby stick format, this is a cool-leaning baby pink hue that actually does glide across the lips, leaving behind a soft flush of colour coupled with high shine. Wear time colour-wise is about 2.5 hours, not factoring in eating and/or drinking (which is about what you’d expect from a shade this light), but the nourishing feel it provides lips extends long past after all colour has gone.

MUFE 921 Artist Lip Blush

921 Rosewood Pink Artist Lip Blush (CAN $25.00) | Inspired by the ‘soft texture of a powdered blush’, this has a 3-powder complex in the formula comprised of “Silica, Synthetic Mica and Polymers” for a lush, yet intense matte colour payoff. Housed in a retractible chubby stick format as well, this is a universally flattering shade of what I call ‘antiqued rose’ that applies smoothly along the lips without any pulling or tugging, depositing a healthy dose of pigment even by the first stroke. The matte finish still has the barest hint of a sheen, keeping it from appearing flat or one-dimensional, and wear time is quite impressive – easily lasting 6+ hours and leaving a light stain behind once the majority of colour has worn off.

MUFE 922 Artist Acrylip

922 Electric Fuchsia Artist Acrylip (CAN $28.00) | Electric is putting it mildly; this is HIGH VOLTAGE colour (and yes, it totally deserves caps) that literally stuns your visual sense from the very first swipe. Inspired by acrylic paints used by artists, the Synthetic Mica in the formula boost saturation, while Silica Gel adds intense colour in a non-sticky format. Lightweight in feel but incredibly pigment-drenched, lips are fully covered from the get-go, leaving behind a shine and über long-lasting finish (I stopped counting after 9 hours; even with drinking and eating, there was still plenty of colour left over).

As much as my inner princess longs for it, pink is not a shade I usually turn to; mainly because it doesn’t always agree with my light-medium skin tone, but every so often the right shade, or in this case, ‘shades’ come along. Having heavily lined lips, lip balms are my saviour and I usually have several on hand, and while those little Vaseline pots are a Godsend, sometimes I want a bit of colour mixed in with the soothing effect; enter Flushed Cherry, with it’s Barbie-girl pinkness. I love the look of matte lips, but the moisture-sucking factor can be off-putting, which is why the smooth texture of Rosewood Pink has earned it a spot in my makeup bag (TIP: I use the balm first to act as a barrier against any ensuing dryness). My initial thought on applying Electric Fuchsia? HOT TAMALE!!!! That one packs some serious pink power, and yet…I’m really, really loving it! This is a no-holds-barred lip colour that may be way out of my comfort zone, but it makes me happy. I’m going with that.
