Review: Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 1


I love the formula of the Make Up For Ever Artist shadows. They’re smooth, ultra creamy and oh-so-pigmented. The metallic finish ones are my absolute favourite, but they’re all good. I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to try a few more of these shadows, and opportunity knocked in the form of a really economical palette!* If you don’t fancy buying a bunch of singles, MUFE has come out with a couple of palettes, one neutral and one bright. I got the neutral one.

Something to note right off the bat, if you’re not a fan of shimmer, shine and sheen, then this palette isn’t for you. The nine shadows range from satin to full-on metallics with glitter. I’m basically a magpie and love shimmer shadows, but I could see a lot of people balking at the serious lack of mattes.

This isn’t the sort of palette that really lends itself to complete looks. The palette does come with a little look book that claims that each of the vertical columns is a trio that can be used to do a complete look, but I’m really not a fan of any of the suggestions and have just been doing my own thing. I tend to just use one or two of the shades and then supplement the look with other shadows from my collection. For example, a few of these shades create an amazing molten metal look when layered over a cream shadow. Again, I like shiny shadows.

*Note that the shadows in this palette are slightly smaller than the singles, but the palette is still a really good value.
