Make Up For Ever Artist Face Color Highlighter H102 & Blush B204: Review and Swatches

I have here the duo palette filled with one highlight refill and one blush refill. The compact is well made with a snap closure and a sleek, matte plastic material. You get a decently sized mirror inside and the base of the compact features a magnetic surface that allows the refill pans to be easily swapped in and out. The compact does seem to be a tad larger than the size of two refills combined. I suppose this was designed to allow easy removal of the refills but I do wish the pans fit more snuggly for a sleeker look.

For the Artist Face Color system, Make Up For Ever is offering six highlighter shades, eight sculpting shades, and twenty blush shades. I have here the highlighter in "H102" and the blush in "B204". "H102" is a gorgeous opalescent champagne with a subtle pink sheen. The formulation is super creamy and buttery; it's pigmented but easily blendable to give a youthful and alluring glow. "B204" is a cool-tone matte baby pink. The formulation is not as creamy as the highlighter but it's silky and even. The pigmentation is also superb so a little goes a long way.

Overall, this is a fantastic product! The customizable system is very convenient and with so many colors to choose from, it really is the go-to choice for those hoping to make their own everyday face palettes.

Update: After wearing the blush for five or six times now, I've noticed that it fades very quickly. Powder blushes generally last the whole day for me but "B204" lacks longevity. I've not tried any other shades in the range so I can't comment on the whole line but this shade definitely disappointed in that respect.

Make Up For Ever is available in stores and online at Sephora.
