Make Up For Ever Artist Face Color: B304, B500 and H312 - Review and Swatches
MAKE UP FOR EVER released a new innovation of colour and customization with new Artist Face Color. The collection features 34 highlighters, sculpting powders, and blushes. You can mix and match to make endless colour combinations. The formulas are available in matte, shimmer and pearl finishes. One can create single, duo or trio palettes in any combination of the 18 blushes, 10 highlight or 10 contour shades. I will be sharing the shades I chose below as well as swatches.
Each pan retails for $29 and the empty mono, duo and trio palettes are $2. Considering the quality of the palettes, this is a great deal. The packaging is very sleek and convenient for taking it on-the-go. The formula features "atomized pigments" which allows for an "intense colour" payoff. I don't find them overly pigmented but are buildable. I find you need to use a moderate hand or dense brush to get full coverage. The powders have a satin feel to them and blend easily into the skin. I went with two blushes and one highlighter instead of a sculpting shade. The camel blush (B304) leaves a natural flush of colour on my skin tone. As vibrant as shade B500 is swatched, it's not that dark on so don't be intimated by the shade. It did take more effort to diffuse and blend but it does sheer out leaving a nice natural look. I decided not to go with a typically gold highlighter that I'm usually drawn to and went with H312. It reminded me of Becca Cosmetics' Blushed Copper which I love. Shade H312 is slightly lighter than Blushed Copper. It is shimmery but not over the top and is best suited for darker skin tones or as a blush topper.
B304 - camel blush
B500 - plum blush
H312 - shimmery gold-copper highlight
Overall, I love the concept of creating your own palette. There is a wide variety of shades available for the blush, sculpt and highlight powders. You can differentiate between the three categories by the first letter of the shade name (B for Blush, S for Sculpting and H for Highlighter). The blushes have a smooth velvety and dense texture. I didn't experience any fall out with them. There are better quality blushes out there as far as pigmentation. If you like a natural look then this would be great as they leave a seamless finish.
