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.
ME-658 (Golden Brown) is a medium brown with a metal finish.
ME-734 (Tangerine) is a vivid orange with a metal finish.
I-838 (Slate Pink) is a medium iridescent mauve.
M-10 (Matte Black) is a jet black matte.
I didn’t swatch any of these over primer because they seemed like they would be incredibly amazing without it, and I was right! Just one swipe of the shadow onto my hand gave me such great pigmentation. They feel very creamy, very smooth and I’m really impressed with the payoff. The M-10 Artist Liner was a nice, creamy jet black matte. I tried it on my lower waterline to see how long it would last, since nothing much lasts there on me for long. Unfortunately it started wearing off within 45 minutes on the edges but did stick around the middle of my waterline for a few hours. So if you have watery eyes, it may not last on the waterline, but it does last nicely over a primer on my upper lids.
You can find these at Sephora and Make Up For Ever boutiques now.
