New from Make Up For Ever: ARTIST PLEXI-GLOSS.
If you follow my Instagram (@shintarosvita), you’ll notice how I love matte lips. I guess, I’m just used to the texture. I dislike everything sticky on my lips, which will make my long hair stuck on my lips when blown by the wind (I bet you ever felt like this too). But….I just love looking at new shades, trying on new texture, I guess that’s just the blogger’s soul inside of me.
Then, there are 35 shades of these Artist Plexi-Gloss. The latest gloss (more to lacquer I may say) from Make Up For Ever. Nudes, Pinks, Corals, Reds, and Black (yes, black!) with Pearl & Solid textures. Just check the bottom of the packaging, the one with the code P after the numbers (P stands for Pearl, by the way) are the one with shimmer.
At the launch event, me and fellow bloggers were given three of Artist Plexi-Gloss to review. And here, I tried two of them, since the third one is transparent, so I’m just gonna use the transparent one on top of the other shades.
Above pic is shade 101 “NUDE BEIGE”. As the name stated, it’s really nude. I recommend to put on lip liner before applying and skip lip balm as it’s already moisturising enough. The texture is really smooth, and the exclusive applicator (named SuperFlex) made it easy to apply in one stroke. If you’re looking for a perfect high gloss nude shade without having to cover your real lip colour with concealer, this shade is the one.
Then I try the second one, 300P “GOLDEN PINK CORAL” below.
Yes, this one is with Pearl. More shimmery and a lot more sheer. You can judge only from the swatch on the back of my hand. The vinyl-like texture is the same with the non Pearl one, with golden sparkle shimmer. And the shade falls more pink than coral (at least on my lips). For extra shine, add the “TRANSPARENT” shade on top.
I can’t feel any scent or taste, so it’s a plus for me. These glosses are the thickest gloss that I’ve ever tried, but I believe that what makes them long wearing (they last even after eating & drinking). Avoid applying too much and you’ll be fine. I also recommend to try the shades first in their store before you buy, as it might look different from the tube once applied on lips. Happy trying!
