Lip Service: Make Up For Ever Moulin Rouge

I need another red lipstick like I need a hole in the head. But really, who can resist this little tube of heaven:

Do I need another red lipstick? Absolutely not. But I’m thinking… need is relative, right?

This lipstick is simply too lovely to keep all to myself. So I’m paying one forward in an upcoming giveaway! Details coming soon. Ciao for now!

MUFE Rouge Intense: #15

For those of you wanting to get Violetta… try this while you wait. MUFE Rouge Artist Intense in #15
It’s described as a pearly violet, but when you look at the color sticker on the bottom and the actual stick… this lipstick screams goth PURPLE.

Not to worry, it actually translates quite nicely on the skin.

It is NOT a dupe for Violetta, so don’t think that you can replace one with the other. But it’s a nice comparable shade. It’s also a bit darker, for folks who are not a fan of bright purples or fuschias. I like the Rouge Artist Intense line, but I must say that it can be a bit drying at times. These lipsticks respond nicely to well moisturized lips, so don’t skimp on the lip balm. They wear for a very long time, and don’t bleed or fade (or at least, they haven’t while I’ve been wearing them). This color, the pearly gold, the orange and the red are my favorites (I don’t remember their #’s off the top of my head). You can get ’em at Sephora for $19 a pop, or at a local beauty supply store that honors the pro discount…
And when all else fails, place a call to MUFE in New York and tell ’em to hook you up!
