Orange Is the New Red

OMG, I am so excited about this one, guys!  OK, so if you read my post earlier this week then you know about my weekend quest to nab some items from my local Sephora during their 15% off sale.  Well, it's time for a little show 'n' tell and, boy, do I have a beauty to show you and tell you all about!  It's a zippy lippy that's clearly not for the meek or timid and, therefore, right up my alley!  So, without further ado, please allow me to introduce you to my latest lip-oriented acquisition: Make Up For Ever's Rouge Artist Intense #40.

#40 is a vibrant, carrot orange from MUFE's Rouge Artist Intense lineup of lipsticks - a lineup that boasts 50% more pigment than traditional lipstick, packing each tube with a cornucopia of richly hued, long-lasting color.  And not only was #40 unyielding in its delivery of boldness and opacity, but it stayed put on my lips all day, even after eating!  Seriously, no major fading on me whatsoever.  It applied smoothly, too, and has a satin finish.

I was determined to get this lipstick when I initially saw it online and do you know that it ended up being the last one in the store?  YES, the very last box in the MUFE display!  Call it kismet, karma or however you want to put it, but my name was already written all over it so was meant to be.  And now it's mine, aaaallll mine!  Muahahahaha!

So, who's a happy girl?  Me, Dolce, that's who!  And I can't wait to start rockin' this all through the spring and into the summer... and prolly through most of the winter, too.  You know me, I have no allegiance to seasonal dictates when it comes to color.  I'm loving this shade of orange and will be rockin' it until its proverbial wheels fall off!

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense #40 is available at Sephora and retails for $20.
