Make Up For Ever Give In To Me Alluring Color for Eyes and Lips kit includes everything you need, including a fold-out pamphlet with tips, to achieve and recreate Anastasia Steele’s sultry look. It comes in a beautiful keepsake box with a secret compartment, where you may want to keep some of your fave Christian Grey sex toys afterwards? The black box features a pink ribbon around it with some favourite quotes from the movie. Inside you’ll find an Artist Shadow palette with 4 shades (I-514, ME-612, S-556, I-628), a Graphic Eyeliner, Smoky Extravagant Mascara, Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in N4 and a Lab Shine Lipgloss in D14. This kit will help you instantly transform from innocent to sexy in a few easy steps.
Make Up For Ever Give In To Me Alluring Color for Eyes and Lips Artist Shadow Palette comes in a standard MUFE case with 4 shadows within. I-514 is a beautiful pale iridescent shade, ME-616 is a metallic rose gold, S-566 is a purple/grey satin and I-628 is a deep forest green with an iridescent sheen. Of course, it has the same gel-powder formula with pigment atomization technology that we’ve come to learn and love from artist shadows. It’s creamy, smooth, buttery and glides on effortlessly. Each shade is extremely pigmented with highly intense colour payoff in a single swipe. It’s buildable, blendable and lasts throughout the day without creasing or fading. These are the only 4 shades you’ll need to create a mysterious, natural, sultry, yet sophisticated look. I guess the only thing that is missing, is a deeper, richer shade to really intensify the look and create an even more dramatic, smoky eye.
Make Up For Ever Graphic Eyeliner is a felt-tip black liner that’s perfect for beginners thanks to its ultra-fine, slightly flexible and blendable bristles that come to a fine point for precise lines and easy control. It glides across the lid with ease without pulling or tugging on the lash line. You can easily achieve a thin, natural look, or build it up for a more intense, bold, dramatic nighttime look. Although extremely pigmented, no need to go over the line more than once, it could tend to be a little blacker. It’s not the intense jet-black look I typically look for in an eyeliner, but it performs well. Dries quickly with a long lasting formula that’s smudge and budge proof.
Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara is the only non-full size product in the kit. It’s a little smaller than a full size tube, but a lot larger than a sample size one. This precision mascara not only adds volume and length, but it helps to curl the lashes. It features 4D technology with a microdefining wax formula that helps to coat and adhere to each lash providing it with an extremely black, highly pigmented look. It has a cone shaped brush that picks up just the right amount of product and helps to separate each lash. I found the brush a bit too large to apply mascara to the bottom lashes and like all matte products, it’s somewhat drying. It does give you dramatic lashes with a ton of volume and length, but as far as curling the lashes, I think you’ll still need to use an eyelash curler. It does help to hold the curl, once you’ve achieved a curl and even though it has a drying formula, it doesn’t flake or smudge the entire day.
Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in N4 comes in an incredible sleek and sexy black tube with a lightweight, pigment and illuminating mother-of-pearl formula. It’s enriched with cupuacu butter to give it a smooth and silky texture that glides across the lips effortlessly. Candelilla wax and beeswax give it an extra creamy and soft feel with added moisture. It’s extremely hydrating and nourishing, almost like a lip treatment, but with intense colour payoff of a lipstick. It has a medium coverage, but is buildable to a full, even though it claims to have a sheer finish. It has the staying power of a lipstick, a solid 5 hours, but with the shiny finish of a gloss. N4 is a pink beige that gives a radiant, “your lips but better” effect to the lips. This amazing hybrid formula has me wanting more Rouge Artist Natural Lipsticks.
Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Lipgloss in D14 comes in a transparent plastic tube with brush applicator for easy application. It features hyaluronic acid and Camelina oil to help keep lips moisturized and help improve elasticity. It is slightly thicker in texture, yet still lightweight and comfortable to wear without being goopy. It’s non-sticky and has a sweet, slight apricot, fruity scent. Its light reflecting and mother-of-pearl particles add the perfect shine that gives the appearance of fuller, poutier lips. Its slightly tackier texture adheres to lips and stays put for a solid 3 to 4 hours before fading. D14 is a sheer bubble-gum pink with a shimmery champagne diamond sparkle finish. It’s extremely natural looking with just the right amount of shine, perfect for applying over Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in N4.
Make Up For Ever Give In To Me Alluring Color for Eyes and Lips Kit retails for $90, but comes with over a $200 value for a limited time only at your local Sephora.
