MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Intense #18

With all of the berry and red lips that I've been rocking lately, I've found myself craving something a bit simpler. I've been turning to my tube of MAKE UP FOR EVER's Rouge Artist Intense #18* ($23 CAD/0.12oz) to give me a slightly nude lip with a pearly finish.


"What it is: A highly pigmented, long-lasting lipstick that delivers rich color in one stroke.

What it does: Formulated with 50% more pigment than the traditional lipstick, Rouge Artist Intense gives an immediate true-to-color result. A blend of three natural waxes, the creamy texture glides on effortlessly for a long-lasting hold. The extensive color and texture range provides unlimited creativity." - Sephora

MAKE UP FOR EVER's Rouge Artist Intense formula packs a really nice amount of pigmentation, and you only need to go over your lips once. Shade #18 is a beautiful pearly beige with slightly coppery/gold undertones. This is one of my favourite go-to lipstick shades when I don't know what to wear. Shade #18 pairs really nicely with almost any eye and cheek look, so it's a no-brainer lip shade. There is some shimmer/glitter in this formula, but it doesn't feel chunky or gritty on your lips. The Rouge Artist Intense formula from MUFE isn't the most hydrating, so I do often pair this with a lip gloss. This formula doesn't feel drying, but it also doesn't offer very much hydration. However, this shade does have great staying power, and I only need to reapply after about 5 hours. 

Have you tried any of MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Intense lipsticks? I have my eyes on shades 12, 5, and 29. These are great lipsticks with a ton of pigmentation, and the shade range is incredible. There's bound to be a shade for everyone! 


  1. This shade is so pretty! I love the rouge artist lines :)

  2. I haven't tried them before but this is a pretty colour, nice that the glitter isn't gritty :)

    1. Thanks! Ya I love that I can't even feel the glitter :)
