Today is National Lipstick Day! Over here at STYLEanthropy, we’re celebrating with a red lip look. I know the day is almost over… but if you’ve been following me on my snapchat, then you know I’ve been sick the past few days. So as soon as I felt better this morning/afternoon, I knew I had to play with these new makeup products that was sent to me by Make Up For Ever (thank you MUFE)! I sure needed some color (looking anemic ATM). So what better excuse to play with makeup than to celebrate #NationalLipstickDay ?
Yesterday, July 28, the Make Up For Ever Boutique at the King of Prussia Mall had an exclusive event in celebration of National Lipstick Day and to launch their new Artist Rouge Lipstick. While I had missed this fun event, the MUFE team were generous enough to send me some products to enjoy.
So, let’s try these products. Shall we? But first and foremost, it’s always important to PRIME!
If you haven’t been priming yet, my question is WHY? It will help with your makeup application. Create a better base for all your makeup. It will make it last longer. And this primer, in particular, is my favorite because it mattifies your face. I love this primer this time of the year because my face tends to get oily during the summer. This one keeps it matte in an instant, I swear!
After priming, I tried the MUFE Water Blend foundation for the first time. It’s another new product from the brand. It’s a face and body foundation that’s 80% water. Yep! When you pump the product from the bottle, it’s really fluid. It’s very lightweight and I almost didn’t feel any product on my skin.
My initial impression when I applied it on my skin is that it’s pretty sheer. However, you can add more product to build the coverage. In my honest opinion, this product is a perfect summer and travel companion. But for events, going out, etc., I am still a 100% loyal fan of their Ultra HD foundation.
I then tried the Make up For Ever Aqual XL eye liner. I love this! It glides on so well and didn’t smudge. It stayed on for hours. So yes, this is a perfect travel eye liner. Even if you’re headed to the beach or to a pool party and want some fierce cat eye, you can wear this and be confident that it would stay! No bias or anything, but I’m switching to this eye liner from now on.
I then used the Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash mascara. I like how I needed only one coat and I’m good to go. It also dried pretty quickly. So no need to worry about smudging your lids with mascara!
Finally, it’s time for some hot RED!
They sent me the Hot Red shade in their MAT finish. I was surprised by the formula because it didn’t dry my lips. Matte lipsticks tend to be drying, but this one wasn’t. Also, it stayed on pretty well and long. Now I want to try other shades and the creme finish too!
Well, I hope you enjoyed today’s National Lipstick Day look. And of course, if you like to try Make Up For Ever’s new range of beauty products, make sure to head to their website. I want to try more of their lip colors, especially the creme finishes. In fact, I’m feeling extra bold and risky and want the midnight color (blue)! What do you think? Great for Fall season? We shall see! Until next time, folks. Xo.
