Reader Review: Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Intense Lip Stick

Thank you to Josephine P. from NYC and editor of http://www.yourbeautyschool.com. I love you review, I have been thinking about a great red lipstick for fall and you have me sold on Make Up For Ever!

Make Up For Ever Lipstick Review
On Monday, I had the chance to go to Make Up For Ever’s showroom here in NYC. It was so beautiful: they really have some excellent products. I went into the showroom and I must say I loved the lipsticks they had – just splendid is all I can say! I was really drawn to the new Rouge Artist Intense lip stick line: I bought the pearly bright red and off I went. (I am a self-proclaimed cosmetic addict!)
Being of a lighter complexion, I think this lipstick was absolutely perfect for my skin. The application was smooth and gentle on my lips and the color was to die for! I saw myself in the mirror after I put it on and my lips were radiant and youthful! When it was really hot, not only did it stay on my lips, but it didn’t have the tendency to smear as much as some other lipsticks I’ve tried.
But it was over dinner that I really made up my mind that this was going to be a keeper. It was the first time my husband said to me in quite a while, “Sweetie, you look amazing tonight! I love those lips!” While it was a tad more expensive than most lipsticks, it was definitely worth the investment. The quality is very high and it feels great on the lips. So much so that I will likely buy another color. I think next time, I may try for a slightly darker hue that will create a more professional look (perhaps a satin rust) for whenever I am at a large business event. Make Up For Ever overall has excellent products but for now…I have found lipstick love in their new Rouge Artist Intense line.
