There are 14 matte shades and 31 in the creamy finish and I have a few of them to show you here. I love the teardrop-shaped tip which enables you to line and define the lips without a brush. Also the matte metal packaging is lovely and a major improvement on the previous lipstick look.

I love the formulation of both of these finishes. In fact, it’s hard to decide which I like the best. I am usually obsessed with matte, but the creme is so good too it makes it hard to choose.

Although I must say, it will be a cold day in hell when a white lipstick comes near my mouth! I am thinking I’ll keep it as a mixer?!

I love all the matte shades I have and it is such a comfortable, nourishing matte formulation. It doesn’t feel like a matte at all.

Lipstick lovers are in for a serious treat! The Makeup Forever New Artist Rouge Lipstick line up goes online HERE in the US on 22nd July 2016 (potentially with US shipping). The UK launch is set for late August/early September 2016 HERE.
