Make Up For Ever Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick in Shade 401

Press Sample


The holidays are here, and what colour could possibly be better on your lips but red! In truth, I'm a fan of red lips year round, day or night, so it wasn't too surprising that I fell in love with the shade 401 (Red) Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick by Make Up For Ever. Even if you tend to stick with nudes and are generally afraid of this bold colour, the holiday season is the perfect time to be daring!


This particular liquid lipstick is super creamy and applies easily to the lips with the wand. It is densely pigmented; I had great coverage with just a single coat. It dries down quickly to a matte finish.


I'm not sure if I am more impressed with how comfortable and non-drying this lipstick feels on the lips or just how long wearing it is with very minimal transfer. I applied this to my lips first thing in the morning, and it lasted through multiple cups of coffee, water, breakfast and lunch. By dinnertime, there was some fading from the center area of my lips, but a quick second coat touched up my lipstick perfectly. I you're looking for the perfect lipstick to show off your holiday spirit, Make Up For Ever's Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick in Shade 401 is a great option!

You can purchase this lipstick from the Make Up For Ever website here. There are several other colour choices available, and I know I certainly have my eye on a few of them! The Artist Liquid Matte line retails for $20 each.

What is your go-to lipstick colour over the holiday season? Do you like to change it up during the year, or do you stick to the same colour families year round? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
XO!

  2. Oh my word Jen! This is so freaking hot on you! Also - your lips need to be in a magazine - yours looks natural, not photo shopped and attainable...as a reader I'm thinking - I want my lips to look like this, I need this lipstick!

  15. Dang girl, this color is awesome. I can't believe how well it lasted either - that's my number one reason for not wearing lipstick is that I hate how quick it fades or wipes off or whatever.
