Review: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural in N9

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural lipstick

As part of Sephora’s Beauty Insider program, this year Beauty Insiders receive two free minis of a Make Up For Ever mascara and lipstick during their birthday month. I have reviewed the mascara here and finally got a chance to try out the lipstick. These are actually the first products that I have tried from Make Up For Ever.

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural is said to be “An ultra-creamy lipstick with a translucent soft, shiny finish. Enriched with nourishing properties, Rouge Artist Natural keeps lips hydrated for eight hours after application. Its incredibly smooth texture glides on effortlessly for ultimate comfort while also leaving the lips supple and moisturized. Formulated with mother-of-pearl and colorful pigments, Rouge Artist Natural’s translucent shine adds a natural sheen to the lips. This lipstick is available in an array of fresh, luminous shades with two finishes: satin and pearly.”

The packaging looks very simple, yet classic. You actually get quite a nice sized product even though this is a sample. This is 0.05 ounces compared with 0.12 ounces for the full size so you are getting almost half of the full-sized lipstick for FREE. The texture of this lipstick is extremely creamy and buttery. It is described as being translucent but you actually can get great opaque pigmentation. This free sample comes in the shade N9 which is a “copper pink.” This looks more like a reddish-pink, almost like a dusty rose color. This shade is very similar to my natural lip color but it is a bit more red so it makes for a great everyday lipstick.

I actually really enjoy this product. The pigmentation can be sheered out if you apply this by dabbing on with your finger or it can be built up with 2 or 3 swipes of color. This lasted on my lips for about 4 to 5 hours with minimal fading. Eating does decrease the wear time but re-applying is very easy and doesn’t cake up product on the lips. This slightly settles into fine lines but it isn’t very noticeable. This feels extremely hydrating and reminds of me of the Revlon Lip Butters. I love that this leaves a nice sheen which would be perfect for the summer. I recommend trying this product out!
