Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss - Swatches and (Mini)Review

Make Up For Ever Plexigloss Swatches Review - MUFE Lipgloss 304

Despite all the positive reviews on about the brand, I haven't tried very many products from MUFE, but the few products that I have tried have all been awesome.  Case in point - the new Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss.  I got to try 3 of these lipglosses when I got them as a sample with purchase from Sephora.  Pigmented, glossy, and oh-so-lip-friendly, these lipglosses are a must-have.  I stopped  by the MUFE display at Sephora to check on the other colors in this range and got some swatches to go with my mini-review.

Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Glosses are available in a ton of colors, from bright reds to even an opaque black and of course a whole lot of neutral, wearable colors.  The gloss applicator is a bit different from the usual lipgloss wands in that it has a small slit/split in it to hold a tiny reservoir of gloss and sweep on the ideal amount on to the lips.  I am not sure how these glosses would look when applied with the applicator included in the actual full-size gloss.  I tend to use a lip brush most times, so it probably wouldn't be an issue for me.  Anywho, here's a look at the swatches of the MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss range.

From what I have tried, the MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss lipglosses are long-lasting and quite moisturizing.  The glosses are tenacious and while they do transfer, the color stays on the lips for a long time.  My favorite among the shades in the tiny Sephora sampler is the shade 304 - a bright reddish coral that I am definitely going to pick up a full size of.  The formula seems to make bright colors like these a lot easier to wear.  The 2 paler colors in the sampler don't look too good on me when used on their own.  I do have unevenly pigmented darker lips, though, and I am sure they would look good on someone with less pigmented lips and/or if used over a lipstick or a lipliner (which is how I am planning to use them).  Here's how the two colors - MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 202 and 100P - look on my lips.

Make Up For Ever Plexigloss Swatches Review - MUFE Lipgloss 202
Wearing Make Up For Ever Artist Pexi-Gloss in 202.  I have applied this lipgloss on its own, without any liner or concealer to help cover my lip pigmentation.  For a pale, soft color, this does provide some coverage, though not sufficient for my lips.  I actually like to use this color (as well as 100P in the pic above) over a lipliner or a lipstick.

Overall, I absolutely love the MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss range.  True to claims, the colors last a good 5-6 hours on my lips, with the reddish coral 304 leaving a tint on my lips at the end of the day.  There was no bleeding/feathering around the lip edges even for the more pigmented colors.  I am planning to pick up a few of these colors - 304 is already my go-to color this summer.
