Grabe, I wouldn’t be this masipag (diligent) in posting Make Up For Ever reviews if not for their awesome line-up this 2016. Each product is professional quality, yet they nicely put “tutorials” and “how-tos” for makeup enthusiasts and beginners too! (refer to instruction photos below). I feel so happy to be invited to their very special Make Up For Ever Spring Collection for 2016
launch and this includes their Artist Palette Volume 3 – FLORALS. This costs 2,500php which includes 9 eyeshadows, and 1 eyeshadow that can also be used as blush (multipurpose makeup hooray!). Scroll down all the way to the bottom for my full review and thoughts.
I also reviewed their Pro Sculpt Palette here (Make Up For Ever ProSculpt Palette Review)
Oh and I also took photos of the step-by-step guide for you so feel free to use as your reference!!! 🙂

STEP BY STEP GUIDE
NUDE BLOSSOM (my fave look!)
Packaging – I’m always been a fan of cosmetics in cardboard packaging (ex. Happy Skin Feeling Sculptacular
). Not only are they economically friendly,compared to plastic I notice that they’re more durable. Cardboards offer more cushion and protection. My rant on NARS compacts
, they break the powder more easily grrr.. maybe they did that on purpose so we buy over and over.
Coverage – You definitely need a primer if you want the colors to boldly show-up and give a bright saturated color payoff.
Staying Power – 5 hours without any primer and it started to crease on my… well crease. Hehe.
Shade/Finish – Satin with microshimmers. Quite smooth and buttery to apply.
Texture – It glides like dream and never gave unwanted fallouts despite the satin finish
Scent – fragrance-free
Will I re-purchase? Unlikely. I have so many makeup LOL and love to buy and buy new ones but I’d treasure this palette as this is one of my favorites!
