First Impressions: Make Up For Ever Artist Palette + Swatches

by - August 28, 2014

Today I decided to go into Sephora for a quick peek. I happened to see Make Up For Ever's (MUFE) new limited edition Artist Palette. I don't own any eyeshadows from this brand so of course I wanted to test it out. From the looks of it, I could already tell it would have intense color pay off. This palette features 8 colors (0.03 oz each) in MUFE's new Artist Shadow formula.
What it is: a limited-edition eye shadow palette featuring the season's must have shades to perfectly complement your favorite eye looks.

What it does: MUFE's Artist Palette combines everyday neutrals with the season's on-trend colors for shades that range from everyday neutrals to deep, jewel tones. Created with an exclusive blending process, its unique gel-powder formula has a silky texture that is incredibly easy to apply and blend. It's super-saturated ultra-fine, atomized pigments for intense color, leaving a smooth, even finish. Shades can be mixed and matched to complement your fall wardrobe.
L-R: Milk Tea, Pinky Beige, Olive Gray, Celestial Earth,  Copper Red, Peacock Blue, Blueberry and Black Purple.

I found that the first three shades didn't show as well on my deep skin tone as I have seen on lighter skin tones. But I am sure with a good base or primer that those colors could pop just as well as the metallic and frosted colors. The eyeshadows applied smoothly and blend like a dream. I would definitely recommend it as it is a cute and travel-friendly way to create a multitude of looks. Neutral tones with pops of color are definitely in as many brands have released their own versions. Similar palettes to consider would be Tarte's Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette ($38), Anastasia Beverly Hill's Maya Mia Palette ($29) or their Amrezy Palette ($29) as well.

Where to Buy: Sephora online or in-store

Comparison: When I swatched these eyeshadows the color payoff reminded me of Milani's new Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows and it just so happens that MUFE describes these eyeshadows as having a "gel-powder formula" as well. It seems Milani's new eyeshadows are a dupe of MUFE's Artist Shadows for a fraction of the cost. MUFE's shadows are $21 each when bought separately while Milani's retail for only $3.99. So here's swatches of colors that are similar to eyeshadows in this palette.
L-R: Bella Copper, Bella Gold, Bella Cobalt and Bella Violet.
