If you add the word iridescent in front of something, chances are I’m going to want it. When I first saw the new Make Up For Ever La Bohème Rouge Artist Natural lipsticks and read their descriptions, I wanted them so I immediately snagged them once they went up on Sephora.

My lips are in awful shape currently, please excuse them. Need more lip balm!

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes. It claims to be a creamy hydrating formula that gives a colorful yet transparent finish. Bohème is very sheer, though I think if I use a nude or peach lip liner under it, it will look better. Folk is more pigmented and I really like how it looks on my lips. My guess is, because the name has ‘Natural’ in it, and the lipsticks are part of a spring collection, the colors are supposed to be sheer. The lipsticks were very moisturizing on my lips.

Would I purchase again?
Yes. I’m a sucker for iridescence. I also like coral and peach. These are my first Make Up For Ever lipsticks and I do like the formula.

What do you think of these lipsticks? Do you like the shades? How do you feel about iridescence?

Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
