Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Indulges In A New Wardrobe [Including 100 Swatches]

For this second edition of the ROUGE ARTIST saga, I wanted to showcase the profusion of colours. I dreamed up and worked with interplays of coloured lights that express this diversity of shades. More than ever before, ROUGE ARTIST is a real artist’s palette in which makeup expressed itself and turns into an experience.

Beauty becomes one with creation in an array of lipsticks in every tone.

the essence of glamorous lipstick

Supreme pigmentation, supreme coverage, immediate seduction. Rouge Artist Intense marks the comeback of real lipstick with lasting hold. This object of desire and femininity turns lip makeup into an art form.

Its sexy, shimmering metallic black case holds a melt-away texture and an extreme colour result. Its maximum coverage offers an ultra-intense effect from the first stroke. Its secret? A formula saturated with pure colour pigments, a creamy formula and dazzling shades in a variety of finishes: matt, satiny or pearly.

For a supremely glamorous smile.

filtered lights, tinted shadows, soft intensity 

An interplay of sheer colours and vibrant layering adorn and embellish her. In an impertinent composition that says everything about her creativity. She dares to wear colour and changes it to match her moods. An artist of her own beauty, she invents new works of art in one brushstroke. She embraces luminous materials and has a sparkling vision of life.

avant-garde lipstick, sheer transparency

After the success of Rouge Artist Intense and its ultra-pigmented colours, MAKE UP FOR EVER launches Rouge Artist Natural. It is inspired by a return to naturalness, a key trend for Spring 2012 focusing on fresh, vibrant tones in wardrobes and vanity cases.

The result: an astounding choice of shades that are as striking as ever, in an ideal sheer texture to spark inspiration. Lipstick becomes playful with fashion colours. With its melt-away texture and “fresh lip” effect, Rouge Artist Natural dresses lips in delicious crystal clear shine. For natural coverage and an incredibly luminous, fresh smile. Shades with a sensational translucent finish. Who has never dreamed of a lipstick that naturally enhances the radiance of the lips?

a game of divine delights

Glide them on with pleasure. Sheer shine with Rouge Artist Natural: a savvy mix of film-forming polymers, intense colour pigments and precious pearly particles. Applied with fingertips or a brush, colour stays true and sublime under the effect of Candelilla plant wax and beeswax, which help the pigments adhere perfectly to the lips.

It protects and embellishes with its creamy, ultra-sensorial and violet-scented texture. On the border between lipstick and lip care, it delivers 8-hour hydration to the lips.

Its secret: a moisturizing cocktail of vegetal castor oil and Cupuaçu Butter for exceptional glide and lips that stay silky all day long. A lipstick treat to savor in 50 appetizing and radiant shades with a satiny, iridescent or diamond finish.

Flashy, floral, radiant, romantic. From the most classic to the most extravagant colours, from the most natural to the most sexy. A hint of nude or passionate red. A flashy sorbet or fruity candy. Rouge Artist Natural and Rouge Artist Intense adapt to every trend and mood. Now you can find every colour and every texture at MAKE UP FOR EVER.

A fabulously rich collection, a tone palette to use to your heart’s desire. 100 shades to satisfy every impulse. An invitation to non-stop creation. A superbly colourful range for inspired beauties.


Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense & Natural retails at S$35 each, for 3.5g of product, made in France.


Overall, very impressed with the Rouge Artist lipsticks. Each range has its own character. Personally, I prefer the Intense range more as the colours are sharper, more opaque and intense. But, the Natural range is more wearable – ideal for those who are colour-shy, looking for a pop of hue that’s less traffic-stopping.

The entire range of Rouge Artist lipsticks offer wide colour selection, you will surely find something that matches your style and taste. Shall follow-up with a proper review of the formula and shades I picked up.

Thank you for looking, hope the swatches above helped.
