Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick - No 28

I was browsing through the dozens of pics I've taken for planned blog posts and came across images I took back in early February to show off a lipstick I was wearing quite regularly at the time.

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in No 28 is described as a satin light taupe which is rather misleading. Yep, it's a satin finish but not 'taupe' in colour at all. It's more of a mid tone dusty pink. An ideal nude for every day wear with great pigment.

I must stress how impressive the pigment in these lipsticks are,  as they're formulated with 50% more pigment than that found in traditional lipsticks - and it shows. This nude doesn't give a 'barely there' effect on my lips as some nudes tend to do, you can clearly see the colour in the photo above.

My overall experience of this, is that while it isn't the most moisturising of lipsticks that I own (nothing a slick of lip balm didn't fix, but that's a given as lip base for me anyway), I wore this almost daily for approximately two months before forcibly removing it from my make up bag to give something else a go!

I really like the colour and it lasts pretty well, requiring minimal touch ups, other than the usual adjustment required after eating.

Rouge Artist Intense lipsticks are available in three finishes - matte, pearly and satin for varying effects and come in an impressive 50 shades.
