New In: Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow

MUFE Artist Shadows

Hi Everyone,

Well, I think Make Up For Ever has done it again. By now I’m sure you’ve all seen at least a few of the 210 shades of Artist Shadows that MUFE released this summer in celebration of their 30th anniversary. The range of colours is incredible, from pure white to coal black, there isn’t a colour they haven’t created. There are 5 finishes, matte, satin, iridescent, metallic and diamond.

MUFE kindly sent me two of the Artist Shadows to try based on my eye colour and colour preferences. Of course I love purple shades, and having green eyes means that purple tones will make them pop.  I received shades I916 Frosted Mauve and ME930 Black Purple. Frosted Mauve is a pretty, light lilac shade. Black Purple is a dramatic, smokey eggplant shade with a bit of glitter. Frosted Mauve is a great highlighting shade, while I’ve been using Black Purple in my crease and as a liner.

MUFE Artist Shadow I916

Both shades are very pigmented (the Artist Shadows offer up to 88% pigmentation, which is the highest on the market!), but Black Purple is even more proof of the quality behind these shadows. I barely need any of the shade on my brush for great colour pay off. I will admit I was a little apprehensive at first because the shade is a lot darker than what I’d usually use, but a little goes a long way, and the shade is very buildable for when I want to bring the drama.

MUFE Artist Shadow ME930

Each shade can be purchased individually, or you can purchase empty shadow palettes to create your personalized palette. With 200 shades to choose from, the palette cloves are almost endless!  Available exclusively at Make Up For Ever boutiques and Sephora, the shadows are $24 CAD/$21 USD each. Be sure to grab an empty container to safeguard your new shadow. The containers are 1$ each (for 1, 2, and 3 shadows), and if you buy two  artist shadows, you’ll get a $9 discount. If you buy 3, you’ll get a $20 discount (so 3 shadows will be $17 each, 2 will be $19.50 each).

The Artist Shadows are just another testament to the quality line of products offered by Make Up For Ever. Make sure you head into your nearest Sephora or MUFE boutique to play with all of the shades!

29th Birthday Wishlist

 

29th Birthday Wishlist

 

Hi Everyone,

Happy November! My 29th birthday is coming up in just over a week – I can’t believe I’m entering the last year of my 20s! I’m ok with the number, but ask me next year when my 30th is looming. Here are a few things I’m hoping I’ll be lucky to receive for my birthday this year:

1. Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Shadow Palette in The Lolita – $71. I go back and forth on palettes, but I could easily use all 7 shades in this one. I also really like The Enigma, but for my neutral shade tastes, The Lolita is right up my alley.

2. Josie Maran Coconut Water Eyeshadow Play Del Pink – $23. I heart pink shades, and the formula for these shadows is so interesting, I’m more curious about them than anything else. I swatched this shade recently and was really impressed at the colour payoff and the small amount I had to use.

3. Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 – $40/2oz. I am OBSESSED with this moisturizer! I bought the Winter Dreams skin care set and received the .5oz sample size not knowing anything about Josie Maran products. I’ve been using it daily and my skin is loving it! I also like the high SPF, because let’s be honest, I don’t always remember my sunscreen.

4. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold – $46. Rose Gold. Highlighter. Enough said.

5. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose – $51. This is mainly on my list because I’ve never tried Bobbi Brown, it’s pink, and it’s shimmery. I’d also take Pink Nectar ;)

6. Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights in Baked Starburst – $36. I’m getting into highlighters, and I really like the colours in this one. I’m a fan of their primer, so I’d like to see what their makeup is like too.

7. Dior Poison Eau de Toilette – $62. When I was coming home from Hungary this Spring, I had a lot of time to kill in the Warsaw airport. I tried this perfume and liked it immediately. It’s not a scent I’d normally go for, but I need a change from my usual musky-vanilla fragrances. Plus I like the bottle!

For those of you who are lucky Sephora VIB members, enjoy your 20% off starting November 6th. I’ve heard that Rouge members get access on the 5th too. Feel free to add one of my wishlist items in your basket :)

What’s on your wishlist? Are you planing for the VIB sale?
