Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow in S-616 and ME-700 Review and Swatches


Hi guys,
I spent considerable amount of time on this new blog layout. Although, it isn't exactly what I had in mind, but being a complete non-html person, I decided to take a break and figure out the rest of the stuff later. Thanks to the online tutorials, it was much easier than I thought.
Anyways, today's post is all about the MUFE Artist Shadows! These were launched in celebration of MUFE's 30th Anniversary. The world famous MUFE eyeshadows were revolutionized and 210 shades of Artist Shadows were created for infinite looks and endless possibilities.
They come in five finishes, Diamond, Satin, Iridescent, Metal and Matte. The ones I have ,are in satin and metal finishes...and they are gorgeous!! You gotta see the swatches!







L-R: S616 and ME-700

ME-700 Amber (Metal)
This is such a gorgeous shade. I would describe it as a golden-peachy shade, leaning towards orange than yellow, with a smooth metallic finish.
It feels very smooth and buttery as I work with it. The formula is definitely buildable and long lasting, without a primer. It lasted almost 7-8 hours and then it started to fade. I did not notice any fall out.
Its a very pretty shade and perfect for the upcoming holiday season :)


S616 -  Chocolate (Satin) 
The satin finish was something I was looking forward to and I am very happy with the smooth and satiny finish of this shade.
Chocolate is a rich brown shade with a neutral undertone. It is the perfect shade for the outer corners and even the crease. This is one of those staple shades that easily pair up with any colour on the lid. Perfect for contouring and has an amazingly smooth texture. No fall outs with this one too!
Quite impressive!

SWATCHES

Overall, I think these are the best eyeshadow textures, I have seen in recent launches and MUFE has really set the bar high with this formula. Apparently, the formula of Artist Shadows is based on Pigment Atomization and Water-Blend Technology that delivers 88% concentrated pigment and utmost blendability and even texture. Neat!

Artist Shadows can be purchased from Sephora and Make Up For Ever Boutiques for $25(single), $39 (Duo) and $50(Trio)
