Iconic Red (400)

Make Up For Ever Iconic Red (400) Artist Acrylip ($24.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bold, bright medium-dark pinky red with cool, blue undertones and a natural sheen. It had more semi-opaque, buildable coverage; it was one of the few shades in the range that I actually felt was truly buildable.

It’s a liquid lipstick formula that is supposed to have “buildable color intensity and shine” with a “non-sticky, non-drying” formula that includes a slanted, flocked applicator and a squeeze-tube format. I don’t know that I would really describe the formula as buildable; I would say that you can apply the tiniest amount and get less coverage, though it would still be medium-to-semi-opaque and have less shine. For me, it seemed that more product yielded glossier coverage with slightly more pigmentation. Iconic Red had a thinner texture than most of the shades in the range, which also resulted in less glossiness in the finish. I noticed more color pulled into my lip lines, but between the intensity and brightness of the shade, it was hard to notice. This shade wore for seven hours and left a strong stain behind. It was neither drying nor hydrating.

Raspberry Red (401)

Make Up For Ever Raspberry Red (401) Artist Acrylip ($24.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a deep red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a glossy finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that had a more translucent effect to it than the other sahdes, which looked creamier and heavier (though they didn’t feel heavy!). The consistency had more slip, too, and I think this could be a shade that might feather on some, though I did not personally experience it. It lasted well for six and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

Eggplant (501)

Make Up For Ever Eggplant (501) Artist Acrylip ($24.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a deep brown-based burgundy with warm undertones and a glossy finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (to about semi-opaque) with a very glossy finish and more slippery texture. Some of the color migrated past my natural lip line, which isn’t something that happens too often to me, so I would recommend using a lip liner with this shade. The texture, while comfortable, seemed too slippery for this type of color, as it yielded uneven coverage. This shade wore for five hours on me.
