Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in #40


You all know how I feel about my red lipsticks…Well anything with a hint of orange is a close second! To this day, Le Orange by YSL is still one of my all time favorite colors of lipstick. So of course, while browsing at Sephora yesterday (browsing, who am I kidding?) I stumbled upon the Make Up For Ever section. This BOLD, bright almost electric orange lipstick quickly caught my eye. It was almost an exact dupe for my beloved YSL Le Orange but for a fraction of the cost. What I love about this Rouge Artist Intense lipstick is that it is highly pigmented and has a creamy finish. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a great matte lipstick, but sometimes I just want something with a bit more of a sheen. I paired it with my basic clear lipliner that I use with all of my lipsticks these days and it kept my lipstick from feathering. It kept my kisser perfectly put for hours on end. Ladies, this is definitely another lipstick that is NOT GREAT for that first date, but what the heck! You only get one chance to make a first impression. This will definitely leave him wanting more!
