Introduction To Make Up Forever (Pic Heavy)


Hi Beauties!

Okay, I admit that I’m new to this brand. Where should I begin? I’m so excited and I’m talking as if I’m going out for my first date. I feel in love with this intense matte lipstick the moment I did a swatch on my arm at Sephora. It’s a Christmas gift from my daughter where I get to pick what I want, Yay!

Let’s begin:


MY first encounter with Make Up Forever (MUFE) is their Mat8 Intense Color Lipstick which I’m going to talk in more details in this post. Available at Sephora for CAD$23.00 with 5 MATTE color selections.


First of all, the  outside packaging is sleek and luxe in my opinion. Wait till you see the tube inside. It’s so pretty I want to kiss it. That’s how much I love this bad boy.


From the top bird’s eye view of the packaging. A sexy lip logo with a chic, long, cigarette holder in tow reminds me of actress Audrey Hepburn.

This is a must have to any makeup collection 😉 Trust me!


Mat8 is a Bright Red Matte Lipstick. I love red lip color and this shade is right up my alley. I feel this is the most amazing, perfect red for everyone who is into red.


Besides that, the texture is so creamy and long lasting. The color wouldn’t budge and stay comfortably on lips. No color transfer when I tried it on my hand. After a whole long day 8 hours, when it does fade, it fades quite evenly leaving a nice stain on lips. I love it! I could only get rid of the lip stain using makeup remover. I kid you not :-0


Look how gorgeous the pigmentation of MUFE formula on this Mat8. AMAZING, you cannot go wrong with this lipstick!

Can you tell me the difference between the two? Have you tried any and do let me know what you think in the comment section. I love to hear from you.

I added pictures below so you can see for yourself, but if you want bright red, this is it!

So far, I’ve been really enjoying this product. Very pigmented and it’s very creamy.  I know that matte lipsticks are usually drying for me (or for many) and uncomfortable feeling to wear (Mac ones specifically) but these are not drying at ALL. It glides and sit comfortably on my lips. This matte red that I have looks really velvety on my lips in my opinion. And plus point, it smells amazing too!

I feel like I am betrothed to Sir Mat8 forever.

Thank you for taking the time to read. Hope to see you guys on the next one!

Mac Matte Lipstick ~ Lady Danger

Hey beauties!

Today, I’ll be sharing with you this matte lipstick from MAC. It’s lovely Lady Danger matte lipstick which is described as a vivid coral red with a matte. It’s a bold and brightened orange-red warm undertones matte finish. Having said that, it seems to lean more to red than orange but not completely red. Fabulous color!

Mac Matte Lipsticks has the most color shades I’ve even seen, 165 shades to be precise. Isn’t it amazing and it’s impossible not being able to find a color you like.

From what I understand this Lady Danger is here to stay as MAC permanent collection. The shades are absolutely amazing and it has such rich pigmentation which offers full color coverage on lips.

I bought this matte lipstick not long ago and I’m super excited to share with you the photos, swatches and testing it.It’s moist and glides wonderfully. On top of that its wear is long lasting and not surprising to stay for 4-5 hours. I did a kissable transfer and it does leaves some color stains behind. This is a coral red shade lipstick which in my opinion would not be going out of style.

Available at Mac counters, stores and online. The price is $16.00 for a 0.01 0.10 oz. So, there you have it my Mac lipstick review and I hope it helps.

Have you any Mac matte lipstick? Please comment below which color you have?

Thanks for taking the time to read.
