Make Up For Ever Artist Lip Blush in #921 Exalted Rosewood (LE)
Where to purchase: Sephora and online at makeupforever.com
Price: $21 for 2.5 g/ 0.08 oz
Made in France
Description from the package: Inspired by the soft finish of powder blush, Artist Lip Blush glides on to leave lips blushing - and looking beautifully matte with a sensual velvet finish.
Very easy to apply, with fine-powder, Artist Lip Blush has a rose-petal texture that feels so comfortable and cushiony.
Thoughts: I first found out about this product through email. They sent a picture of models wearing the three limited edition lip products. Out of the three, I was drawn to the matte one which is this one. I wasn't going to buy it until I saw it in person. Let me tell you, I fell in love when I swatched it on my hand!
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no scent whatsoever. I just sniffed with my nose to make sure. Secondly, I love that it's retractable. I hate sharpening or you can say I'm just lazy. I also love pencils, in the sense, it's easy to apply. You definitely don't need to be experienced. Anyone can apply it on their lips. It's easy to line especially the lining and the corners. With that said, I prefer thicker pencils than thinner. I feel that lip pencils take a lot more work to apply onto the whole lips. I prefer to make it easy on me and go out the door. It's just personal preference. Third, the consistency is in the medium. It's creamy and goes on smoothly. There is slight tugging on the lips but not to the point it drags it. It'll definitely be easier on people with normal to hydrated lips. For that reason, I recommend you hydrate your lips before applying the lip color. With that said, it's in-between when it comes to pigmentation. It's not extremely opaque but it's a decent color. It's matte, smooth, and just plain gorgeous. It also doesn't express the lines on the lips. Fourth, it's a gorgeous pink color. It's not bright to the point that it says hello look at me. It's also not light that you don't see anything. It's a perfect pink in my book. Not only that, this color will be great all year round. Lastly, it lasted until I ate/drank. It did not fade and it did not dry out my lips. There was no white residue on the center of my lips, as well as, my lips did not feel tight.
