MUFE Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick Review and Swatches

I purchased the Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Intense #15 Lipstick with my haul from the MUFE Pro Road Show.  I’m really loving Purple and Red lips for the fall so here’s another purple lip color using MUFE Rouge Artist Intense #15 with…yep, you guessed right, M.A.C. All My Purple Life lipglass.

Here is the lipstick.  When I opened the box, my first response was “Whoa! That fragrance is strong!”  I hadn’t even put it to my lips before I could smell it.  That’s a big con as far as I’m concerned.  However, the versatility of being able to build the color from sheer to bold by applying more coats makes up for the strong fragrance.

The swatch at the top is sheer with 1 coat and the swatch at the bottom has 3 coats.  

Here’s what the color looks like on my lips with 1 coat.  I like how the lipstick is shaped.  It allows you to line your lips without a lipliner. 🙂 This lipstick has quite a bit of shimmer to it so if you prefer mattes or creams, you may not like it.

This is me wearing a sheer coat.  
Here I am with the same lipstick just more coats. Wow! Can you believe this is the same lipstick.  The top two pics are without a flash.  The bottom is with a flash. 

Now with All My Purple Life added. On the top no flash. On the bottom with a flash. I like how I ended up with a bit of a blueish tint without the flash. Gives a pretty cool effect. 🙂

  I really really like it.  I think I may wear these lips for Halloween! 

I haven’t worn it out yet, but I’ve only heard great things about MUFE Rouge Artist Intense and how it wears for a long time. I’ll give it a try tomorrow to find out.

I just bought this same one last month to add to my fall lippies and I love it! I've worn it with a NYX Purple Rain lipliner and MAC All My Purple Life lipglass. It is truly an attention-grabber.

I hope you enjoy it!

One word: gorgeous!!! I've had my eye on this color for the longest time. I actually have never purchased any MUFE even though I have a Pro Backstage Card!

Hey Miss Dre!

I have that NYX Purple Rain lipliner. I bought it right after I got All My Purple life a few months ago. I've worn them together and I agree that it is pretty. It lightens up the color a bit to me. I haven't worn Purple Rain with this lipstick yet though. I'll try it to see.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. 🙂
