Sponsored Post: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Palette 02 Cool Pink Shades Swatches and Reviews

(Taken from the press kit)

Embracing Color Freedom is the concept behind this creative collection of 8 ROUGE ARTIST LIP PALETTES. We have specially designed each palette such that it offers an assortment of 5 lipstick shades specially selected for you to wear for any kind of occasion! Together, the amazing colors of ROUGE ARTIST Intense and ROUGE ARTIST Natural opens the door to an infinite range of effects on your lips: from discreet to dazzling, and from barely-there to out-there-in-your-face. They say that lips are the ultimate symbol of a woman’s femininity – so why not use these palettes to express who you are? You can wear a different shade every day according to your mood or blend the colors to create your own, personal, unique color.

For the first time, a selection of ROUGE ARTIST Intense and ROUGE ARTIST Natural shades has been combined into 8 palettes. Each reflects a different color family: Warm Pink, Cool Pink, Warm Beige, Cool Beige, Red, Coral, Brown and Plum. There’s a palette for every taste, and each one contains 5 shades with warm and cool harmonies in perfect accord. They are dense enough to easily blend into an even, consistent color. ROUGE ARTIST LIP PALETTE: the ideal color chart to select whatever depth of color your heart desires. SGD 72

Today I will be showing you the first Rouge Artist Palette which is Number 02 Cool Pink.

The Rouge Artist Palette comes in a handy metal casing. It has  a wide mirror, perfect for touch ups and I love the handy lip brush enclosed. I don't know about you but I need lip brushes. I don't have the most even lips so lip brushes help me to achieve precise lip lines and not a messy application.

All Rouge Artist Palettes features 4 intense shades (highly pigmented) and 1 natural shade (sheer). The middle shade being the natural shade.

Don't you just love the lovely fuchsia on the right? So pretty! I generally find the lighter shades a little too light for my skin tone but that's not a problem. I can mix and match and customise a shade I am happy with. Which is the cool thing about these palettes.

Left to right: No. 10 Intense, 33 Intense, N26 Natural, 34 Intense and 9 Intense
No. 10 Intense is a very light metallic pink that is way beyond my comfort level.

No. 33 Intense is a bubblegum pink on my lips.

N26 is a lovely sheer pink.

No. 34 is about my favourite shade of the bunch. It is a a lovely bright rose pink shade.

No. 9 Intense on my lips. It is a cool fuchsia with a slight metallic shine.

The Rouge Artist lip Intense is pigmented and feels comfortable on the lips but are not as creamy as some of the luxe brands. It takes a little effort to get enough product using the lip brush. I find that using my finger helps warm up the product and gives me a lovely stained look. I prefer the Natural formulation, though sheerer feel more emollient and glides more smoothly on my lips.

I like that there are a range of shades but somehow feel that the lightest shades don't do with my skin tone. As I mentioned the fun part of this palette is mixing it just like you would with your paints to get the colour you desire. There are endless possibilities so at SGD $72 you get quite a lot of bang of your buck.

  1. That a handy sized palette and I like that you can mix and match the shades, I'm thinking that I would probably go for the cool beige one. I still haven't bought any MUFE, need to get that sorted soon :)

    1. Clare I have the warm beige palette for review with swatches coming up in a few days. If you are in love with Suqqu and Burberry lipstick formulas you will find this a little disappointing but I have to say their staying power is fatastic.

  2. I logged in to comment, and Clare has already said what I want to say. :)
    I prefer minimalistic packaging, and this would be what I'd ask for if I were a lippie girl.
    It's a cute little thing.

    No. 34 is great with your complexion. You have hawt lips, momma!

    1. Babe I miss you! ;) I hope you have been doing well my dear, how have you been? You know what I love my lip products in tubes heh heh even though it is a hassle when it comes to storing. Wait till you see palette No. 6 corals, I bet you will love it.


I love comments! Please leave me one. I promise I'll write back.
