Sephora (USA) has an offer for the members or Beauty Insiders as they call us, that every year around your birthday if you order you get a free gift with it. Last year, they tied up with Makeup Forever for the birthday gifts. In the package was this lipstick that I was gifted along with mascara from MUFE. And indeed it was one of the best gifts I received last year! Read on for more creamy, hydrating details.

My experience with Make Up For Ever Copper Pink Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick :
Packaging: I have the mini version of this lipstick as any MUFE product it is very sturdy as expected. Upon some research online, I found that the packaging has the same plastic and metallic features in both versions – black body with chrome detailing. The feel is the same, just the forms are different. There’s nothing extraordinary about the packaging, just that it feels absolutely well-built.
Color: When I first opened the lipstick the first color that hit me was that it is an orangey lipstick. Then slowly the coppery-ness of it became more prominent. It is not at all orange on the lips. The bullet and a swatch looks like a rustic brick copper color, with little to no hint of pink. It is only when I apply it on my lips that the pink comes through much better and more predominantly. It is a very wearable color, perfect for work or college. A single swipe gives barely any color, it looks more like a lip gloss. You would need multiple swipes to get a full opaque look. I have no complaints about this color. It is a very universally flattering color in my opinion.
Texture: If you read the description you will see that the main selling point of this lipstick is that it is creamy, hydrating and moisturising. It surely is very true to these claims. It is ultra creamy, so creamy that if I press on the bullet lightly I can see my finger print on it and when you swipe the lipstick, you can see the “cream” accumulate in the corners. It feels exactly like a super quality moisturiser. It is neither slippery nor gooey; it just is intensely hydrating and makes the lips feel very plush and moisturised. As long as you have the lipstick applied, it feels moisturising, the feeling lessens with time, but it remains very noticeable throughout.
Fragrance: It has no special or lingering fragrance at all. It is very neutral in this department.
Staying Power: For a lipstick that feels more like a lip balm than a lipstick, it has surprisingly good staying power, you would need a touch up only after you eat or drink something or after 3-4 hours. It is so luxuriously moisturising that I don’t mind applying it multiple times in a day. The hydrating effect is also very long-lasting, more than any regular lipstick. If you have chapped lips, this lipstick will be your best friend that day!
Application: If you apply a lip liner under this lipstick the color obviously stays on much longer. The product is so creamy that you have decent time to define your lips well without fears of it setting or creasing. I do not need a brush with this product; the edges of the lipstick are enough to define the lips with. Mess-free, stress-free application, so much so that for touch ups you can get away with using no mirror at all.
