  • "SUPER pigmented! This green shade specifically helped me with my Christmas/holiday looks this year. It was totally worth the price for all the colors you get in the palette. I would buy this again just because it’s so vibrant!" in 66 reviews
  • "I have received these colors as a complimentary gift but as soon as I received these colors I went out and bought more! These are great and long lasting. You can purchase the refillers at any Sephora and the colors are amazing. The kit is perfect for traveling and a perfect gift!! :) [product:make-up-for-ever-artist-color-eye-shadow]" in 8 reviews
  • "[product:make-up-for-ever-artist-color-eye-shadow] First of all I am super impressed with the packaging! I love that the eyeshadows and palette are magnetic! That’s super unique! The bone white color is one I could us everyday as my base eyeshadow! And that glittery steel grey color is perfect for a Smokey eye! The pink shadow is so pigmented and so poppin! I loved the texture of the shadows and how easy they are to blend! bravo! I created such a pretty eye look perfect for any special occasion!" in 7 reviews

Review for: M-853 Neon Pink more...
I normally don't branch out of the brand of eyeshadow that I already use, because there's so much to be disappointed with: colors not being pigmented enough or there being massive fallout. These eyeshadows have NONE of these problems. I was very very surprised. In fact, when I swatched the Neon Pink color, I got nervous. "This is going to be way too bold for me." 

These colors are very concentrated, so a little goes a long way, especially if you use eyeshadow primer/base. They also work wonderfully (and are even more bold) if you use them with a damp brush. Overall, this past year has been an eye-opener for me for the Makeup For Ever brand, and I truly believe that even though they are a bit pricey, if you get one of these refillable palettes and pick three shades you know you'll wear all the time, it's worth the investment. And when you run out, you can just get the single shadows again, without having to buy a whole new palette! 

I received these three shadows as a set from Influenster's Voxbox, and couldn't be happier with all of them to add to my collection of eyeshadows.

Review for: M-853 Neon Pink more...
Overall I really love these! The color payoff is really good and it's buildable, so you need moderate amount of Shadow on your brush. You can let it be subtle or really make it intense. The blend ability is excellent.

I also love that these can be put into a magnetic palette for easy storage and transport, and you get so much product!! You don't have to worry about only having a little to work with for the price. You got a ton of product! . Yes they are a little pricey, but for what you got its worth it. The only downfall to these is that they don't always play well with other brands of eyeshadows. So you'd basically have to either be selective with what other brands of eyeshadows you use with them, or you would have to make sure that you get a whole set of the colors you think you would need from the same brand.

The swatches require a little bit of build up, although as you can see, they build up to an excellent opacity without compromising quality of application and they remain as true to color it as when in the package.

Huge thank you to influenster and Make Up For Ever for sending these complementary for reviewing purposes!

Review for: D-410 Gold Nugget, ME-654 Cauldron, M-650 Cookie more...
M650 Cookie is warm neutral khaki color with a matte finish. Despite it's somewhat light appearance in the pan, it applies with a surprising depth and in terms of color payoff and pigmentation. ME654 Cauldron is a lustrous metallic bronze which is both versatile and flattering across a range of skintones. The finish is more shimmery than metallic. D410 Gold Nugget is twinkly golden yellow with a sparkly finish. I tend to find colors like this polarizing since they can be difficult to pull off but this was surprisingly flattering since the shade reads more gold than yellow and the diamond finish is actually on the subtle side with very fine particles rather than chunks of glitter. Based on the ones that I've tried I can say that Make Up For Ever Artist Color Shadows have excellent pigmentation and color payoff. These shadows have a soft creamy, blendable texture and provide buildable coverage from sheer to full on/opaque. These eyeshadows can be used with or without primer. I was able to get a solid 8 hours of wear sans primer without much in the way of creasing, fading or falloff.  The matte finish definitely wore the best and the diamond finish had more falloff than the other two. And they took minimal effort to remove at the end of the day with a little micellar water which is also a positive. MUFE has really delivered with this product. The customizable palette format is practical as well as travel friendly. The expansive library of 121 shades gives consumers a wide range of choices especially one is in need of a specific color in a specific finish. This system offers so much in terms of versatility and flexibility and the packaging is eco-friendly. MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Shadow High Impact Eye Shadow

Review for: D-410 Gold Nugget, M-540 Gray Beige, M-603 Cinnamon more...
I received three shadows complimentary through Influenster, but was so excited at the shades I received. Two mattes, Gray Beige (M540), Cinnamon (M603), and a glitter finish Golden Nugget (D410). These color compliment one another so well. The matte formula is literally so buttery and pigmented, they blended out like a DREAM. Can't say enough good things about the mattes. The glitter finish was a little different, I wet my brush (a compact concealer type brush) to pack the glitter shadow on my brush but it didn't work. So I used my finger, was crazy pigmented although it did take a lot to cover my eye. I ended up using a dry brush on the other eye and it was about the same. I would like the try other glitter finishes to compare. Over all these shadows are so worth it. I love the pan they came it and look forward to creating many more looks with them.

Review for: D-410 Gold Nugget, ME-654 Cauldron, M-650 Cookie more...
My love for these shadows were literally a step by step process. When I first received them in my VoxBox I fell in love because they were just so beautiful and could totally make a beautiful look with just these three shadows. However, when I first swatched them I didn’t get much pigment and was very disappointed. I then decided to try them out on the eyes. The matte shadow blended beautifully and was a perfect transition color and can be built up to create a more define crease, however the Diamond and Metallic finish eyeshadows were just not working for me. I was using my brush and there was no big pigment coming through. I gave up for that day and decided to give them one last shot before putting them away for good. This time, I decided to use my ring finger to apply the two eye shadows I had trouble with and they worked perfectly! The gold one was just so beautiful and was vibrant and full of pigment! So I would recommend using your finger to apply the shadow to get a great pay off!

Review for: M-500 Ivory, M-853 Neon Pink, ME-108 Steel more...
This was definitely one of the worse eyeshadow formulations I've ever tried. I have deep skin and the two matte shades M853 ( a hot pink shade) and M500 ( a cream shade) were powdery, barely pigmented even after building up the product, and didn't blend well at all. The shimmer shade ME108 (a black shadow with silver shimmer) was more pigmented (but not super pigmented) but blended out far better than the other two shades. I liked the little magnetic case, but I'd rather depot better shadows to use in it than to use the MUFE shadows provided. My swatches are with no primer and 3 sweeps with my finger.  MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Shadow High Impact Eye Shadow

Review for: M-540 Gray Beige, ME-912 Orchid more...
These eyeshadows are incredible! I played around with them and I find them to be super pigmented, but easy to blend! The best part is they are travel friendly! The concept is that you get to choose the shade of your single shadow and put together your own palette. The shadows are magnetic so you can interchange the shades to whatever you want! The shades I received complimentary from Influenster to test out worked perfect with my fair complexion! and I love berry toned eyeshadows! #influenster #review #complimentary #free #makeupforever @influenster @makeupforever MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Shadow High Impact Eye Shadow

Review for: M-842 Wine, M-847 Burgundy, ME-912 Orchid more...
I love the color selection I was sent, I pull towards more warmer shades so these were really eye catching. The packaging is absolutely stunning, it’s sleek, versatile, and easy for travel. My palette/tray came with three individual shades, two mattes and one shimmer. The pigmentation of the mattes is nice, but requires a light hand and a gradual build up of pigmentation. The shimmer shade is extremely pigmented. I like to apply the shimmer shade with Mac Fix Plus on my brush or with my finger to maximize the pigmentation. All in all, the packaging was a win for me and the shadows are excellent quality. MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Shadow High Impact Eye Shadow

Review for: M-540 Gray Beige, D-410 Gold Nugget, M-603 Cinnamon more...
I am in LOVE with my new palette!! I received the following shades : D-410 (gold nugget), M-603 (cinnamon), and M-540 (grey beige). These colors are perfect for the holidays! The cinnamon was so pigmented and looked beautiful and really made my eyes pop! The grey beige is definitely a very soft gray but good for every day to accent your eyes. The gold nugget was my favorite but I needed to apply a lot of product for it to achieve the desired affect. I loved how shimmery and glittery it is though!

Review for: ME-912 Orchid more...
Genuinely in love with this eyeshadow. I have burgundy, wine, and orchid. All three shades are buttery, blend easily, and despite being so pigmented they have little fall out. I did a 8 hour wear test while out Christmas shopping and experienced now smudging, bleeding, or creasing and I have eyelids that love to smudge makeup into the inner corner and that didn't happen at all! For the sake of truly putting this product to the test I skipped eye primer. I also have the magnetic pallet and the shadows fit it perfectly and feel safe and sturdy inside. The pan size is generous as well which left me amazed. I also cannot recommend the metallic shadows enough. They are the prettiest shadows I've seen in a while without being crumbly or chunky! I'm even making my sister come over this week to try out these berry hues on her beautiful green eyes to really make them pop! I received all of my products complimentary of make up forever and influenster.

I've been looking for a yellow eyeshadow and makeup forever seems to be the only one I can find but I've never used their shadows before so if anyone has are they pigmented? And do they have a lot of fallout?
