[Review] Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss

Thursday 23 April 2015

Received three lovely glosses from Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss range for this review. Dany Sanz, MAKE UP FOR EVER Founder and Creative Director, was inspired by one of her favorite objects, a plexi glass makeup case. Together, Dany and the MAKE UP FOR EVER lab developed a new technology of pigments amplified with a high vinyl finish that would replicate the case's unique look and feel. [from press release]

SUPERFLEX applicator allows just ONE swipe over your lips for precise application. It’s exclusive shape is split down one side, so it fills with gloss through a soft and supple foam material. The flat side of the applicator can therefore roll the color across the lips, using the rounded tip to fill the Cupid’s bow and the flat side to draw the lip contour with precision. The vinyl effect is ensured with no risk of blending. 

These Artist Plexi-Glosses are available in a wide range of 35 shades and this new lip gloss range by MAKE UP FOR EVER is all about Voluptuous Shine, Extreme Color & Stay-on Power! With a new hold-fast polymer and a silica powder that ensures the pigments are evenly distributed, the formula of Artist Plexi-Gloss ensures that it glides comfortably onto the lips to last for 5 hours.

Got tired of plain solid lip colors? Fret not as this range of glosses allows you to release your creativity and come up with cute, artsy and quirky looks! The colors are so pigmented, you can layer them easily to achieve the look you want.

The shades I received were 230P Golden pink, 302P Nude Coral and 403 Red. Above are the swatches! I feel 403 Red was the most pigmented out of the lot as it is a solid color with no pearl pigments. Those with pearl pigments were a little more translucent but they are still pigmented as you can still see the colors on your lips!

Tried to do ombre lips and also a full lip color swatch with all 3 glosses! All swatches done with one swipe. Anyways, my favorite has got to be shade 403 Red! It's the darkest color out of the lot and I could do an ombre lip look with it easily. Second would be 203P golden pink and to be honest it's quite biased as I am a fan of red/pink shades =P Btw for those who are worried about the pearl shades being too much of a bling, you actually don't have to. These pearl pigments are so fine they look really natural. I'm not a fan of glitter glosses but I actually quite like these! :) They only show if you look up close. All my swatches were cropped from half face photos hence you don't really see the pearl pigments in the photos.

My Review
Make Up For Ever's Artist Plexi-Gloss goes on the lips really easily and smoothly! Their applicator really gives a really precise application too. For all the photos above, I applied the glosses with no fuss at all! Btw, the lip glosses can be a little sticky though. So what I normally do is I would blot and powder a little but by doing that, some of the shine would be gone. I guess it very much depends on what look you wanna achieve? I'm not a gloss person but I really love the glossy effect from the Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss so sometimes I will just try to live with the stickiness. But overall I think the pigmentation is good, especially their solid color range, one swipe is really all you need!
