Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Moulin Rouge an exclusive collection created for Moulin Rouge dancers (A collaboration between MUFE and the Moulin Rouge dancers in Paris.)
Received this red hot lipstick and I have no idea when and how I will be wearing this...
I'm not really a lip(stick) person... unless the weather is good and I know I will be staying "indoor" most of the time... else I just skip wearing lip color... lipstick make me "sweat" around the lips for no reasons... anyone experiences that? Or you all have a way to avoid "sweat"???
Anyway... I never been into red lips, my sister do(she LOVE dark red lips)..... and when I see a lip color this "RED" ... I know I will be making a mess applying it! lolx
Alright... let begin the "mess"... kekekekeee Bare lips.. (Pic taken under bright daylighting)
The lipstick feel creamy and not drying on the lips.. color pigment was pretty strong. I did made a mess applying.. so remember to use a lip liner first to avoid smudging or apply it with a lip brush.
I feel like a snow white ... [minus the "size" ... kekekee]
Please excuse my bare face ... I only apply sunblock and moisturizer.... oh and mascara... (^_~)
I almost deleted away this set of pics... cos I think I look funny... my sister say I dont look good with red lips ..

[Event] Few weeks ago, Make Up For Ever launched the Holodiam Holiday Collection - A collection to create spectacular look to light up the year-end holidays with a burst of glitter that takes glam to the extreme!
The glitter achieves a holographic effect thanks to a technological first: multifaceted pearlescent particles that reflect no fewer than three different colors depending on the refraction angle of the light.
The result is an optical phenomenon, a pulsing vibration of intense, ever-changing colors for electrifying eyes infused with mystery.
HOLODIAM POWDER, a loose powder that catches the light in a glittering rainbow of iridescent colors, was designed to enhance both eyelids and cheeks. The sleek box contains a thousand different hues just waiting to add drama to smoky or incandescent eyes, or amplify the cheekbones with a flurry of colorful stars. Color becomes light, and even black sparkles.
Left to Right :: Copper, Plum, Brown Gold and White

Swatches.... Left to Right :: White, Brown Gold, Plum and Copper [Swatches credit to Mag - makeupstash]
The glitters powder was soooooooo pretty... and they are very fine, smooth and doesn't feel chunky (when touch with fingers) at all. Feels more like pigment the glitters powder. Easy to apply/pat on the lids (dry or wet).
These pics doesn't do any justice... you have to check it out yourself to "oooh and ahhhing" with me ~V(^___^)V ~
