One brand I have wanted to try for some time is Make Up Forever, but I just haven't gotten round to getting some of their items. Make Up Forever is a professional brand of makeup and I have seen it in trade shows as well as online. The other week I went to Debenhams in Oxford Street and stopped by at the Make Up Forever counter. I got one of their Artist Rouge Creme lipsticks in the color C502 (Taupe Violet).
The packaging of this lipstick is just fantastic. It feels really well made and not just cheap plastic either. I don't have a color like this in my collection, so it was great to have something different. It's a sort of grey violet and is quite an unusual color. I love these not so ordinary colors as they look great and you can really have some fun with them, especially if like me you love color.
The texture is really creamy and has a fantastic amount of pigment in it. I didn't need to use a lot to get the color looking intense. It's very long lasting too and does stay on most of the day. When I wore this I actually went to the dentist. My teeth had a deep clean which meant keeping my mouth wide open and the dentist messing around in my mouth. Normally I would expect a lipstick to come off or transfer when having your teeth looked at, but this one didn't come off at all. When I left the dentist I was expecting to have to go get my concealer out and clean up any makeup, along with reapplying the lippie. There was actually no need to do anything as the color did stay in place.
I just love this lipstick as the color and quality are superb. I highly recommend this brand.
