Make Up For Ever HD Blush for Spring 2014

Make Up For Ever HD Blush

Make Up For Ever HD Blush for spring 2014 has arrived!

These new blushes are a “next generation” cream. They have a balance of silicone oils, dry oils and waxes which are supposed to help with blending. Silica powders and synthetic mica ensure a smooth easy to wear texture and also helps with a soft-focus finish. Clear mother-of-pearl and pigments help give these blushes a natural color with a luminous finish for a radiant glow.

They come in sixteen colors from light to medium to tan to deep shades, with both cool and warm undertones. The compact is really small, easy to carry and has a mirror inside.

That’s all the technical info from the press release. Below is my take!

Make Up For Ever Artisan Brush Collection

Make Up For Ever Artisan Brush Collection

Listen up makeup brush fanatics! The Make Up For Ever Artisan Brush Collection is new this fall and contains seventy six new synthetic fiber brushes. Yeah you heard me seventy six new brushes! Surely that must tempt even those who aren’t legit brush fanatics, right?

The collection ranges from everyday brushes to customized ones for super detailed effects. Creator & Artistic Director Dany Sanz spent five years perfecting these brushes. Each brush involved 25 stages and was hand-crafted by 30 people from beginning to end!

These brushes are different because they have a synthetic fiber technology that comes in different diameters and types: wavy or straight. With straight fibers you get more of a generous and precise application. When fibers are wavy, you get a lighter and more free application.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Pearly Green Lagoon and Pearly Mauve for Summer 2013

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Pearly Green Lagoon and Pearly Mauve

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Pearly Green Lagoon and Pearly Mauve are two new shades for summer 2013. Actually there is another one as well called Pearly Pastel Green, which I don’t have.

Aqua Creams are great for summer because they are intensely pigmented creams which dry with a nice satin-like texture, they’re crease-proof and are waterproof. They contain evaporating oils and a filmogen polymer, which work to set them and keep moisture out. Plus these two shades are super pretty, colorful and fun!

Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip for Summer 2013

Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Summer 2013

Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip for summer 2013 features five new shades.

These long-wear lip colors are bright and DO NOT BUDGE. They are a non-transferable, very pigmented and full coverage. You can use them either alone, or add the super shiny clear top coat over them. I love them both ways, but think they rock even harder with the shiny top coat.

The new shades are:

  • #16 – Fuchsia
  • #17 – Bright Coral
  • #18 – Coral
  • #19 – Pomegranate Pink
  • #20 – Baby Pink

Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Compact Foundation for Spring 2013 Swatches & Review

Make Up For Ever Pro Finish

Make Up For Ever Pro Finish are brand new compact foundations this spring with a multi-use innovative formula.

Creator & Artistic Director Danny Sanz has been working on creating this for six years after makeup artists in the tv and film worlds had been asking for a versatile foundation that would create a flawless look quickly. She tested more than 70 formulas before finalizing this one. This foundation can be used wet or dry, but it opposite from what you might think. Using it dry provides a full, matte finish and using it wet gives you a sheer, satin coverage.

The “breakthrough formula” includes a vegetal lecithin coating that wraps around the pigments helping them stay on the skin longer and better. It contains silica and sericite as well to help give you a light-reflecting, soft-focus look. Also inside you will find ximenia oil and aloe vera powder to provide comfort to your skin. This foundation is made without mineral oils, fragrances and less talc (read: chalky) than other formulas.

It comes in 25 shades with golden, olive, beige and pink undertones. It comes in a nice sleek black compact with a mirror and a bottom section where the sponge applicator lives.
