My current favourite lipstick is the Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural (what a mouthful of a name) in #47 Red Brick. It goes on comfortably with a translucent finish and feels moisturizing. I do not have to use a lip gloss or balm on top of this to prevent dryness, which I appreciate. A red lip with cracks and flakes isn’t the idea.
The colour itself is a warm toned brick red. One swipe and I’m done, even without a mirror. I don’t need to use a lip brush as the colour and consistency is quite forgiving within my clear lip liner. My bad habit of smushing my lips doesn’t result in a crazy lady effect. I get about 3-4 hours of wear from this lippie, quite good considering my constant smushing and sipping of liquids. At $19 US or $22 CA on Sephora, the price is quite reasonable and I’m looking forward to getting more colours.
