MAKE UP FOR EVER | Artist Shadows in M-106, ME-910 & S-234 Swatches and Makeup Look

In celebration of MAKE UP FOR EVER’s 30th anniversary this year, MUFE released the new Artist Shadow range with a whopping 210 shades consisting of matte, satin, metal, iridescent and diamond finishes. I tried to pick out some “neutrals” and I think I was staring at the display for 45 minutes. Each shadow can either be purchased as a single ($25 CDN), duo ($39 CDN) or trio ($50 CDN). I hope I don’t end up owing even close to all 210 shades, but with the wide variety of shades and finishes the temptation can be overwhelming!

The Artist Shadow Palette Case ($1 CDN)* has a magnetically-anchored pan for easy “potting” and has a little hole in the back of each pan for easy “de-potting” *SWOON*. I love it.

I was feeling “like a peacock” the day I chose these shades (Gerry of PBunnieP can vouch for me!) and went home with a matte dark grey (M-106)*, metallic bubblegum pink (ME-910)* and satin bright teal (S-234)*. I tried to use all three shades in a makeup look, but it WAS NOT working very well so here are 2/3 of the colours!

  • apply matte grey shade M-106 all over lid
  • apply pink shade ME-910 on top of grey (I love the resulting purple-tone!)
    • slowly build and blend the pink to intensity you desire using a patting motion
    • blend upwards to brow bone with fluffy brush
  • apply matte grey shade to lower lash line and smoke out with pencil brush
  • line lower waterline with Aqua Eyes in 0L (review)
  • line upper lash line with black liquid liner
  • apply MUFE Holodiam Powder #302 (review) along upper lash line with small angled brush
  • finish with a coat of MUFE Smoky Extravagant Mascara (review)


Final Verdict: The three Artist Shadows I have all swatched and applied beautifully. Colour payoff was what I would expect for a $25 eyeshadow, but I expect that there might be some other finishes that may have either more fall-out or aren’t quite as pigmented. Such is the way of eyeshadows, but these Artist Shadows are definitely worth a palette or two. Especially for core colours that you will use all the time. I picked up a trio of neutrals that I will share later, but it was worth every dollar!

Do you feel like a peacock sometimes?
