Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer

Make Up For Ever Skin Equalizer

Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer is a brand new product that includes ten specially designed primers that target and perfect all skin types, tones and textures.

Developed with the exclusive Equalizer Complex, the unique formulas triple the power of your foundation for smoother, more even, longer lasting make up. These advanced pro artistry primers are formulated with Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate and firm, Vederine to help skin appear more even and Acti Tensor 3D helps to smooth the skin for longer-lasting makeup coverage.

So how the heck do you use these? Well they are meant to be mixed and matched and they’re divided into two skin-equalizing categories: Texture and Tone. Five of them (Mattifying, Smoothing, Hydrating, Nourishing, Redness Correcting) are designed to address texture-related issues, such as oil/shine, large pores and fine lines, dryness and redness, while the other five, known as the “radiance range”, (Pink, Blue, Yellow, Peach, Caramel) boost radiance in specific skin tones.

Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow and Liner Swatches

Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow

Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow and Liner collection is a celebration of the brand’s 30th anniversary.

The Artist Shadow range includes 210 highly pigmented shadows with finishes such as matte, satin, metal, iridescent and diamond. The formula is based on “pigment atomization and water-blend technology”. This is the latest technology used to maximize color, delivering up to 88% concentrated pigment, which is the highest on the market. They are available as singles ($21), duos ($34) or trios ($44). The names all start with a letter, which corresponds to their finish (ME for metal, S for satin) and a number, which corresponds to where they are on the color wheel.

The Artist Liner range includes 15 shades in various finishes. These liners claim to be super pigmented, silky, blendable, long-lasting and smudge-proof. They come in a twist-up pencil style, which means no sharpening. The names of the liners are similar to those of the shadows. M means matte, ME means metal, etc.

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!
