Make Up For Ever La Bohème Rouge Artist Natural

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.

Shade Descriptions:
Bohème – iridesent peach beige
Folk – iridescent red coral

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.

      I like iridescence during the warm months. I can’t wear coral though, it makes my skin look green. There are a lot of shades that fall in that category. :/ booo. I pick lipsticks that are neutral or not too far from it, even if that means a neutral red.

        Nothing wrong with a neutral red :) They can be hot.

      Ummmmm….I’m very confused by the ingredients of the first one. It seems to be a list of nothing but colorants….?? I didn’t expect to like these just looking at them in the tube, but they really are gorgeous once applied. Both are beautiful colors.

    • Sandra TK

      Love the outside of the tubes as well!
