With Fifty Shades Of Grey hitting theatres this week, I’m way more excited about the makeup collection Make Up For Ever did for it than I am the actual movie. The limited edition collection features a makeup kit, a cheek kit and two Tease Me Lip Trios in Passionate (Berry) and Innocent (Nude). Since I’m always trying to conquer the perfect berry red lip, I was really happy to try out the Passionate set.
The set comes with an Aqua Lip Pencil in Matte Raspberry, an Aqua Rouge Lipstick in Limited Edition Shade 50 and a Lab Shine Diamond Lipgloss in Shimmering Grenadine. It also includes a little how to booklet. I don’t know how, but I’ve never tried a lip product from MUFE before, but this kit really lived up to my expectations. All three products play well with each other and different combinations give you really different results.
The lip pencil is a little darker than I’d normally use but mixed with the gloss it’s really pretty. The gloss isn’t sticky at all, smells amazing and I love that it has a lip brush applicator that’s really flexible. The star of the set for me though is the lipstick. The shade is a great red lip but it’s the actual lipstick itself that’s going to have me trying other shades. It’s a long wear (or as they call it, waterproof) liquid lipstick that has the colour on one side and a clear topcoat on the other. It’s definitely sticky and drying until you add the clear part but once you do, it’s really comfortable. This lipstick lasts forever! I went through three different removers until I found one that could get it off.
If you’ve never tried lip products from Make Up For Ever before, these kits are a great way to try it out. And now I’m off on my hunt to decide which shade of lipstick I need to try next.
