Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 3 - Florals Swatches & First Impressions


Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 3 florals swatch

Hello readers,
Today I have the Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 3 - Florals eyeshadow palette to share with you. I grabbed this when it appeared in the Sephora sale section (and it looks like it's still in stock as of this post). I was drawn in by the mix of neutrals and edgier shades. Let's take a look at swatches.

MUFE florals review

This palette features a mix of classic neural and bright shades. Most of them have a shimmery finish, but Blue Lagoon (second row down, left shade) leans a bit more sparkly and Straw Yellow (bottom row, left shade) leans more satin matte. I first tried to apply with with a large fluffier shadow brush and it just did not work. I got much better results when I switched to a shadow brush with shorter denser bristles and used a patting rather than brushing motion. All of the swatches below are over Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Conclusion

My first impressions of these shadows are a bit hit and miss. The majority of shades applied quite nicely and though some took a little extra work, I was able to build them up to a nice pigmented finish. However, Blue Lagoon ended up being more sheer than I was hoping for and Straw Yellow was much more muted when swatched than it looked in the pan. Hopefully I'll be able to get both of them to cooperate a little more when putting together some EOTD looks. You can find Make Up For Ever on


Happy polishing,

Michelle

  2. I've been looking at this palette for so long as it seems like a permanent piece in the Sale section! Swatches look so-so as you said. I would have liked to see the brighter colours have a bit more omph!

    1. I know! I bought it for the bright shades that I didn't have dupes of in other palettes, but they ended up being more muted than I wished. I'm still going ot try and make this work though and hopefully put together an EOTD challenge post with it in the future.
