MAKE UP FOR EVER // FIFTY SHADES OF GREY

Truthfully, I never read the Fifty Shades series, but I get the general gist of what it’s about.

So, when I received the “Tease Me Passionate Berry Lip Trio” from Make Up For Ever’s Fifty Shades of Grey Collection, I grabbed my bra and took some pictures for you.

Apparently, at least so says MUFE, as Anastasia’s character becomes more confident throughout the movie, her lip colours also change from beiges and nudes (ha!) to more daring shades of red.

MUFE was used by the movie’s head makeup artist, Victoria Down. “As Ana gets involved with Christian Grey, she begins to dress the part and I gave her more maturity in her look,” said Down.” Her eyes became shaded, a little deeper and stronger, her eyebrows were a little more groomed and shaped, and her lips became deeper-colored.”

The berry trio does exactly what is says on the tin: 3 shades of berry in lip liner, lipstick and lip gloss form. I thought at first that the Aqua Rouge Lipstick looked a bit subdued, but it is actually quite a beautiful berry shade–not as punchy and wow as a red, but a little more restrained and sophisticated.

The formula itself is quite powerful–the Aqua Rouge line is meant to last, and the first time I tried it on for about 2 minutes, it was already a total struggle to remove.

You could probably wear the lip liner on it’s own for a deeper matte berry lip. The gloss is quite translucent, however, it is shot through with silver glitter, which I’m not a total fan of in general.
