Make Up Forever Rouge a Levres Lipstick – #203

I am back again with a lipstick review for you lovely people here, but this time, it is not from MAC.  The reason behind this is that I was looking for a hot pink lipstick to suit one of my sarees for a long time.  I have heard a lot about the shade called “Girl About Town” from MAC.  Even Rati has reviewed the same here on IMBB.  I badly wanted to own such a fuschia lipstick.

I tried many fuschias at the MAC store and none of them were according to my taste.  Either the shade was too bold or I didn’t like the texture.  My lips are very thin and soft, hence the creemsheen formulas of MAC always bleed.  MAC does not have any fuschia in satin or matte finish.  I then tried the Revlon Colorburst in Fuschia, which was somewhat shiny on my lips.  Just when I was about to leave the mall disappointed about not finding my exact fuschia lipstick, I came across the Makeup Forever store.  I have never tried anything from this brand though I am lucky to have this store so close to my home.

I was in a hurry and wanted just to have a glance of the lipstick colours there.  A not-so-friendly looking MUA helped me out with this shade called 203.  The best part about MAC is the shade names.  Make Up Forever does not have names but numbers only.

I tried this colour and surprisingly, this was the only fuschia that suits my complexion and pigmented lips.  It is a very bright, hot, cool-toned fushcia.


The best part of the packaging is that there is a transparent portion which allows us to see the color exactly.  So, I don’t have a problem even if they don’t name or number them.


I badly wanted my kind of fuschia, so I had made up my mind to spend any amount on this.  Surprisingly, it costed me Rs. 950, whereas a MAC lipstick costs Rs. 990, this made me more happy.

Staying Power:

Makeup Forever lipsticks are very very pigmented and very very longlasting.  I applied this and went out, had dinner, went home, and wiped it off.  Even then, there was a nice pink shade on the lips.  Only a makeup remover can remove this completely.

What I liked about this lipstick was that it was of satin finish.  However, the lipsticks are not at all drying.  It glides on my soft lips smoothly.

Pros of Make Up Forever Rouge a Levres Lipstick – #203:

  • Very bright, hot pink shade.
  • Non drying.
  • No fragrance.
  • Not very expensive for a luxury brand.
  • Excellent staying power.

Cons of Make Up Forever Rouge a Levres Lipstick – #203:

I came to know about this brand only through IMBB, thank you Rati for this blog.  I consider myself fortunate to have a store near my house.  For many, non-availability of MUFE store in their town may be a con.  As they do not have many stores in India, many people are not aware of this brand.

I am highly impressed with the quality of this lipstick and will definitely pick more shades in the future.

IMBB Rating:

I am so happy with this that I have no other option but to give a 5/5.

Would I Recommend Make Up Forever Rouge a Levres Lipstick – #203?

Yes.  Those who are NC40 and above and “Girl About Town” didn’t suit you, please give this a try.  This hot pink is definitely a wearable shade.  If I can rock this, so can anybody.

P.S:  If anybody is planning for a MakeUp Forever haul, please let me know as I stay very close by and I am longing to meet some friends.

  5. I have a hard time with pink lipstick. It tends to make me look washed out because I have fair skin. Frosted pink is pretty much the worst thing I could wear on my lips…but maybe if I try a more vibrant one, like the one you posted above, I can actually pull it off..probably not, but great article none the less…

  6. Hey Preetha, gorgeous, gorgeous colour!!! I picked up the same thing from the Revlon Colorburst collection…so, so love this colour!!! But this MUF lipstick itself looks so HOT, I feel like biting it 😛 Please, please share a picture of you wearing it…thanks!
