Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss Collection Holiday 2015 SetLip gloss lovers, do yourself a favor and just hand your credit cards over because I think you'll find it hard not to buy this set of MUFE Plexi-Gloss lippies after you take a peek at them--available now! They're beautiful, they perform wonderfully and the price is decent compared to the retail value ($228 retail value with a $150 price tag). Yes, this set is a bit of an investment (or indulgence), but if you're a real lippy addict that probably doesn't phase you too much.
I've talked about MUFE's plexi-glosses in the past, so I won't bore you too much with the nitty-gritty details (feel free to look back at my previous post for that), but I will say that while the formulas tend to vary slightly between the finishes, they are all extremely self-leveling and give lips a plump finish overall.
Price - $150 retail ($228 value)

Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss Collection - Swatches
This collection includes 12 full-size plexi-glosses in a variety of shades ranging from nudes to vibrant violet. Finishes range from opaque and creamy to shimmery. Check them out!
*All swatches were taken on bare lips in natural light. I have little pigmentation in my lips naturally, so keep that in mind when viewing swatches.
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 100P - beige nude with multi-color flecks; super subtle color, but flattering|
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 104 - rosy-beige; creamy and very self-leveling|
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 202 - creamy, dreamy peach; very self-leveling, softens natural lip color|
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 206 - hot pink; super creamy and nicely pigmented|
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 209 - hot fuchsia; extremely opaque, more like a liquid lipstick in pigmentation; some feathering (tip: use clear lip liner around perimeter to prevent)|
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 300P - peach with gold shimmer; pretty frosty gold effect on lips|
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 305 - orange-toned coral; self-leveling and creamy finish; skews more pink on lips than in tube|
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 306 - bright orange; very pigmented on lips|
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 403 - pinky-raspberry; extremely opaque pigmentation with liquid lipstick-like effect; some slight feathering (note: use clear lip liner around perimeter to prevent)|
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 405P - metallic wine (photographs slightly lighter than in person); very pretty on lips; a slightly softer alternative to deeper fall/winter lippies|
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 405 - deep bourdeaux red (slightly deeper in person); creamy and very well-pigmented; some feathering (note: use clear lip pencil around perimeter to prevent)|
|MUFE Artist Plexi-Gloss 500 - vibrant violet; extremely vibrant on lips, well-pigmented; some slightly feathering, but not much|
Final ThoughtsOverall, I think this set offers a great variety of finishes and shades. I love this formula and I've had great luck with the different shades I've tried since MUFE first released them. I think all of the shades above are unique enough to make them worth owning, but if you twisted my arm and forced me to choose favorites I'd say the standout shades for me were #500, #405, #403, #300p, #209 and #100p. But honestly, I liked each one I swatched and will certainly be wearing all of them over the course of the fall/winter.
I do think that value-wise you get a decent amount of product for the price given the fact these 12 would normally cost you $228. Yes, I know $150 does push it to the higher end of the holiday set price spectrum, but if you're a makeup artist or lip gloss addict it may very well be worth the purchase!
For anyone hoping to gift a super impressive item to the lippy addict in their life ... give this a thought!
What do you think? Will this be making it onto your holiday wishlist?
