Make Up For Ever Empowered Beige, Vivid Naked, Powerful Greige Rouge Artist Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Make Up For Ever Empowered Beige (100) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020)Make Up For Ever Empowered Beige (100) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020) ($23.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light beige with subtle, warm peachy undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which applied somewhat evenly, but the product looked almost crumbly with color that settled into my lip lines from the get-go–this only worsened as I wore the product. The texture felt lightweight, thin but not clingy, and had light glide. It lasted for three hours and felt non-drying.

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.

The consistency felt smoother, lightly creamy, and a little velvetey, so while it looked clingy, it didn’t feel that way. It wore nicely for four hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
