Make Up For Ever- Le Lipsticks


Let us begin our official Make Up For Ever series with a focus on the lips.

To understand the nature of Make Up For Ever lipsticks, it is important to mention that like MAC, MUFE comes in different finishes and textures. The colors follow the full colour spectrum.

Lacquered: These are creamy, and provide both full color and sheen
Pearly, which have less coverage and more sheen
Lacquered Transparent: High shine and sheer coverage
Pearly Transparent, Pearlescent and sheer
Matte- Full coverage, and opaque full color. These are the driest of the finishes

It is important to note that these lipsticks are fragrance free. There are no fillers so all you really get is pigmentation without fancy shmancy scents or flavors.

The packaging is also very no frills, and is available in stick or palette refill form.

And on we go to the swatches
Apologies for the crappy lip swatches, but applying and wiping off 12 lipsticks consecutively did not make my lips happy. I will try to redo sometime soon but for now, here are the not so great swatches.



The colors are fairly self explanatory, but of course feel free to ask me any questions!

Until next time, un bisous

I never realized how pretty these colors were...
Each time I go to MUFE, I look at the e/s, as if I needed more hahaha

3 bisous for me please! ;)

Ho, did I tell you that they completely transformed their counter? It's FABULOUS!!!

Anna said...

wow these lipsticks are amazing! this came at the right time too, since sephora is having another 15% off sale!

Willa, that sounds awesome! I too know how easy it is to be distracted by the eyeshadows, but I was determined to give the lipsticks a try! I must say they are pretty great and the refills are a deal ($8 each i believe). Oh, you got it, three bisous coming up :-*

Anna, let me know if you pick one up and stop by to tell me what you think ;)

Krasey Beauty said...

Lala, you are very welcome doll ;)

Sandra said...

if u have to pick one between MAC lipsticks or MUFE lipsticks... which one? i leave MAC for MUFE slowly.

Krasey Beauty said...

Sandra, that is a tough one!

On the one hand, MUFE has more staying power and better pigmentation. On the other hand, MAC has a pleasant vanilla scent while mufe does not.

It all boils down to personal preference ;)

oooh I have MUFE foundation, e/s, and blush, but no l/s!! you have convinced me. I love the shades, such pretty colors. though I might have to use some too faced diamond gloss over it just because it makes everything taste good and vanilla-y. :)

Krasey Beauty said...

Enigmatic, good call. A bit of yummy gloss makes everything taste better ;)

Heidi said...
