Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Lipstick in Moulin Rouge – Review, Photos, Swatches

Product Breakdown:

I have to tell you, although I had heard great things about the Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Lipsticks, I was skeptical. Lipstick is lipstick, right?

Wrong. This particular lipstick is possibly the best thing I have ever had on my lips.



Holy hell, is this lipstick pigmented! The deep red swatch above is a single swipe of the Make Up For Ever Moulin Rouge Rouge Artist Lipstick (what a mouthful!).

The lipstick does change it’s appearance depending on the lighting, appearing as anything from a true bright red, to a deeper blood red colour.

Ease of application:

Smooth and creamy, I found this lipstick to glide onto my lips like a dream. It applies beautifully, however with time, I found it to feather quite dramatically.

This didn’t improve when I lay a base of lipliner. It was fixed by “reverse liplining” – lining just outside my natural lipline with a flesh coloured pencil, creating a physical barrier to the bleeding and feathering.


I found this lipstick wore comfortably for around 4 hours, before I felt the need to touch it up – not bad for such a dramatic red!

All of the Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist lipsticks are housed in a sleek and shiny black tube. Unlike the rest of the Rouge Artist range, the Moulin Rouge shade is accented with metallic red detailing, setting it apart as the signature lipstick from this line.
