Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss Duo Review

It’s been a couple of crazy days and I haven’t had a chance to sit in front of the computer and write. Finally, taking a couple of hours off form my study time, I decided to do a small review about these two lipgloss from Make Up For Ever. 

Make Up For Ever is a very well known brand, yet I have never really tried any of their products before. Let me tell you, it hasn’t been because I didn’t want to. I’ve read such great reviews about lots of their products, a huge number on their HD Foundation, which has made me place this brand on my very long “Things To Get ” list, under the makeup and beauty category.

Back in December, my mom and I went to Sephora for some makeup hunting. I think I have mention this before on another post, but one of the many things I like about this store is that, as you approach to the paying area, the line to the cashier is outlined by small shelves containing pocket size or smaller versions of makeup and beauty products. Thus, as you wait inline, you can’t help yourself taking a peak and even ending up getting one of the many products displayed, which is what happened to my mom and I.

As we were ready to wrap things up at Sephora, we found this small glittery pink box containing a sample of two of the Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss and decided to take it home with us. Inside the package came 209- Fuchsia Pink and 403- Red. Just by looking at the package, I think you can tell this lipgloss range is all about shocking and vibrant colors. The shade 209 is a fluorescent pink, the most shocking of the two, and 403 is a vivid red. Both of these colors I think would be great for summer or when going to the beach.

The first thing that caught my attention when trying them for the first time was the strength of their pigmentation. Expecting just a slight tint on my lips, I was amazed by how pigmented and colorful they were for a lipgloss. However, to achieve an intense finish, I recommend applying two coats.

Another aspect that I liked about these products was their formula. When twisting the cap to pull out the brush and use the lipgloss, you’ll notice that the lipgloss has a thick and rich consistency. When placed onto the lips, it feels quite creamy but, unlike other lipgloss, not sticky or dewy. Yet, I do see myself having some trouble if the wind blows my hair onto my face :P I guess the thickness helps concentrate the color and moisten the skin because my lips felt really nice.

Last but not least, I wanted to talk about the brush. I love that nowadays there has been new developments in the brushes and applicators department haha. You can find from more rigid and stiff types of brushes to soft and flexible ones. This product’s is very soft and glides easily through the lips. It bends without breaking apart and allows you to create thick or thin lines and fill your lips without making a mess.

Overall, I really enjoyed getting these lipgloss. I think they are of a good quality. Their unique and vibrant colors are great for creating fun looks or adding a pop of color to your go-to everyday makeup.

Let me know what you think!!
