Make Up For Ever Artist Color Pencils

Have you ever dreamt of being able to fill in your brows, line your lips and eyes, and color your cheeks with a single product? Well, with Make Up For Ever's new Artist Color Pencils anything is possible! Available in 39 matte shades, these multi-purpose pencils are said to be very pigmented, creamy and blendable.

I tried them on my brows, eyes and lips. I find that the texture is perfect for the lips, it's creamy enough to glide on smoothly without tugging, but doesn't feel too greasy or waxy. They have a great variety of nude shades too, I love 602 Completely Sepia and 606 Wherever Walnut!

On the brows, the formula is too creamy for my liking. The staying power isn't the best because it rubs off too easily, especially if your skin is oily. Also, I prefer a very fine point because my brows are very sparse and I like to draw hair-like strokes. I've been able to achieve a pretty look with them, if I sharpen them frequently, but it's not the best pencils for my own brows.

They work great as a base for a smokey eye, but they need to be set with powder eyeshadows, otherwise they transfer on the upper lid. Make Up For Ever's Aqua XL pencils are much better in term of lasting power, and they don't need to be set with powder because they dry completely on the skin, but they are less easy to blend. These new Artist Color Pencils are creamy and very easy to blend with a brush, but just like a traditional eye kohl, they don't fully set on the skin. It depends on what you want to do with them!

Please note that some of the shades aren't recommended for use in the eye area, though.

The color payoff is great for all the shades, although I wouldn't say that they are extremely pigmented in one stroke. Out of the 39 shades, 5 of them are a bit patchy : 204 Boundless Blue, 714 Full Red, 718 Free Burgundy, 902 Versatile Violet, 906 Endless Plum.

It's not a problem if I only line my eyes or lips with them, but I need to be more careful if I want to apply them all over my lids or lips.

Overall, the formula is awesome for the lips and works great as an eye khol! It's too creamy for my brows, but I know some of you prefer that.
