As far as multi-use products go, Make Up Forever‘s Artist Color Pencil probably has to be one of our favorites. And we don’t think it’s just us. There’s a reason why you hear about this stuff so often on the internet. Despite the fickleness of the internet towards products and brands, for the most part, this has gained a very steady following, and there aren’t really a lot of products out there specifically like it.
We have to mention right off the bad that one of our favorite things about this pencil is how creamy it is, and how easy that makes it easy to apply. Especially with its much-touted versatility, easy application, wherever you put it is essential. And that brings us to our next point about this product which is how truly versatile this product is. Whether as an eyeliner, a lip liner, or ever a brow pencil of all things, it performs quite admirably. If you’re into a lot of colors, this product has also got you covered. Its wide range of color selections is something we really enjoy because it’s not everyday you’ll find lip liners that’ll really match your bolder lip color choices. On top of that, this is also a product that you get really great wear time out of.
Our one primary qualm about this product would have to be how easy it dulls out. Sure, that can be fixed with a regular sharpener, but it’s still a little bit of a hassle when you’re doing tough precision techniques, especially when it dulls down too much while you’re using the product.
All-in-all, we’re really happy that a product like this exists, as it appeals to the part of us that just sometimes wants to use one product for different parts of our makeup routine, especially if we’re in a bind. While we do have our issues with it, it performs pretty impressively, in ways that flatter all the different parts of your face, whichever ones you decide to use it for.
SUITABLE FOR: All skin types.
- The Make Up Forever Artist Color Pencil comes in a whopping 39 shades—a range where both classics like blacks and browns, as well as more eccentric choices like hot pink, purple and a particularly gorgeous teal are represented.
