I picked up a couple of the new Makeup Forever Rouge Intense lipsticks last week and been testing them since. I thought I share my thoughts and swatches with you guys here. Let me start by saying, if you don't know already, I love my lip products bright, pigmented and creamy. Keeping that in mind, I love the new MUFE lipstick formula. Here's why:

I get 5-6 hours of wear out of these without the colour fading. There are three finishes: satin, matte and pearl. I favour the satin finish as it's creamy and non-drying. The packaging is slick and black with the exception of Moulin Rouge which has its name embossed on the tube. There's a faint smell of roses to these lipsticks but not enough to bother me. The price is right for me as well, you pay $22 for these which is slightly higher than MAC's lipsticks but they are longer wearing.

MUFE includes a colour wheel with these lipsticks that assists you in selecting shades that best suite your complexion and hair colour so it helps if you know your MUFE HD shade. The wheel is divided into shades: beige, pink, olive and golden with the option of hair colour blond, red, black and brown. I have light beige skin (MUFE HD-118) and brown hair. I browsed through the recommended shades for me and picked up #37, #34 and #43. Obviousely you don't have to use the colour wheel but I found it very helpful.

#37 - is a coral toned bright pink. It's fairly similar to MAC Impassioned with Impassioned being a bit more "pink".

#34 - is a strawberry pink shade. I love this type of colour as it enhances the natural colour of my lips very well. I don't have anything quite similar to this in my stash.

#43 Moulin Rouge - the red lipstick fiend in me couldn't pass this one up! It's a blue based red, similar to MAC Ruby Woo but with creamy texture:

Hope you guys find this review helpful. Let me know if you have any of the Rouge Intense Artist lipsticks and how you like them :)
