Make Up For Ever M532 Artist Eyeshadow For Daily and Office Wear

Beautiful IMBBians,

I hope the last year-and-half has treated you well! You were thoroughly missed and guess who’s back to writing for IMBB – yours truly! I hope you find these reviews helpful.  I’m sure some of you have heard about the Makeup Forever’s (or MUFE’s) new artist shadow line launched in 210 colours! **drool** While I don’t nearly have all of the 210 colours, I do have about 33 to review for you beautiful people. So, let me start with M532 (the M is for matte) or Sugar Coated Candy today.


Product Description:

Sephora describes this eyeshadow as “a highly-blendable, gel-powder eye shadow and powder blush with vivid color payoff.  Effortlessly create endless eye looks that range from beautifully natural to highly artistic with this unique eye shadow palette. With its breakthrough, gel-powder formula blended with ultra fine pigments, Artist Shadow leaves a smooth, even result that gives lids super-saturated, lasting color.  An easily-blendable formula that features diamond, iridescent, matte, metallic, and satin finishes, it is an accessible shadow for the professional makeup artist and the everyday woman.”

Size and Pricing:

A single pan costs $21.00 for 0.0.07 oz or around 2 grams. This is slightly on the high end of the price I will pay for a single eyeshadow, but the quantity is so much more than what you get from most other eyeshadow pans. This is a seriously BIG eyeshadow pan!  For reference, below is the average price and quantity (for a single eyeshadow) by some commonly used eyeshadows:

My Take on Make Up For Ever M532 Artist Eyeshadow:

This is a gorgeous super light, pinky-beige colour. It is a beautiful base colour for every day and office wear. It is completely matte with no shimmer what so ever. I think because it is so “matte,” the texture runs slightly dry. Even though the texture itself is not as “gel” like the other eyeshadows from this line, it has amazing pigmentation. Being on the dry side and being so finely milled makes it a tad hard to work with.

My brushes pick up a lot and a lot of it is just wasted. I feel like I need a primer for this one just to keep the fine eyeshadow particles in place! To avoid wasting product (or the hassle), I personally get the best results when I use my finger to apply this particular eyeshadow (a clean finger obviously! :p)

I do have ridiculously oily eyelids, but this eyeshadow stays about 4 hours on them without disappearing. With a primer though, it lasts well over 9 hours or through all of my work day which can sometimes be longer!

Here are things I Love about Make Up For Ever M532 Artist Eyeshadow:

  • Gorgeous every day color.
  • Even though it is a cool-toned pink, I think it seems to go well with Indian skin tones.
  • It really opens up your eyes without looking artificial.
  • For the price, you get an amazing amount of very high-quality eyeshadow.
  • Even though it is powdery (for lack of a better term), it is very very pigmented.
  • The colour payoff is amazing for a pure matte shade.
  • The blending ability is fabulous!
  • I LOOOOOVE single pots so much (I have to depot everything and ruin half the things in the process).
  • It lasts forever on me! I could say well over 18 hours with a primer (Urban Decay or Nars). I wore it to a party once – got dressed at around 8 pm, partied it up, crashed on friend’s couch, woke up at 2 pm the next day and my eyeshadow was intact! True story! 😉

Things I am not so much in-love with about Make Up For Ever M532 Artist Eyeshadow:

  • Even though the texture is “powdery,” it is not a con for me. It’s simply a very finely milled eyeshadow.
  • The only real con is availability! In the US, there are probably a few Makeup Forever Boutiques around, but for most of us, you have to buy them from a Sephora!

IMBB Rating:

I would rate this eyeshadow a 4.5/5 and definitely worth trying out if you’re in the market for a great every day color.
