For the first time, a selection of ROUGE ARTIST Intense and ROUGE ARTIST Natural shades has been combined into 8 palettes. Each reflects a different color family: Warm Pink, Cool Pink, Warm Beige, Cool Beige, Red, Coral, Brown and Plum. There’s a palette for every taste, and each one contains 5 shades with warm and cool harmonies in perfect accord. They are dense enough to easily blend into an even, consistent color. ROUGE ARTIST LIP PALETTE: the ideal color chart to select whatever depth of color your heart desires. SGD 72
Today I will be showing you the first Rouge Artist Palette which is Number 02 Cool Pink.
The Rouge Artist Palette comes in a handy metal casing. It has a wide mirror, perfect for touch ups and I love the handy lip brush enclosed. I don't know about you but I need lip brushes. I don't have the most even lips so lip brushes help me to achieve precise lip lines and not a messy application.
All Rouge Artist Palettes features 4 intense shades (highly pigmented) and 1 natural shade (sheer). The middle shade being the natural shade.
Don't you just love the lovely fuchsia on the right? So pretty! I generally find the lighter shades a little too light for my skin tone but that's not a problem. I can mix and match and customise a shade I am happy with. Which is the cool thing about these palettes.
|Left to right: No. 10 Intense, 33 Intense, N26 Natural, 34 Intense and 9 Intense|
No. 10 Intense is a very light metallic pink that is way beyond my comfort level.
No. 33 Intense is a bubblegum pink on my lips.
N26 is a lovely sheer pink.
No. 34 is about my favourite shade of the bunch. It is a a lovely bright rose pink shade.
No. 9 Intense on my lips. It is a cool fuchsia with a slight metallic shine.
The Rouge Artist lip Intense is pigmented and feels comfortable on the lips but are not as creamy as some of the luxe brands. It takes a little effort to get enough product using the lip brush. I find that using my finger helps warm up the product and gives me a lovely stained look. I prefer the Natural formulation, though sheerer feel more emollient and glides more smoothly on my lips.
I like that there are a range of shades but somehow feel that the lightest shades don't do with my skin tone. As I mentioned the fun part of this palette is mixing it just like you would with your paints to get the colour you desire. There are endless possibilities so at SGD $72 you get quite a lot of bang of your buck.
