Makeup Forever Launches in the UK


Makeup Forever launched over here in the UK yesterday, making it more accessible and alleviating the difficulty of being able to get hold of this covetable brand. This launch also takes out the incovenience of trying to figure out what foundation shade you are. I was given the opportunity to try out the Pro Bronze Fusion and Artist Plexi-Gloss. Makeup Forever was created by Dany Sanz in 1984, she studied Fine Arts, but after opening the first professional makeup School in the 70’s, she realised there was a lack of quality professional products. From that day Dany Sanz life was Makeup Forever. The Pro Bronze Fusion is a lightweight, waterproof natural bronzer that is designed to be undetectable on the skin for an all year round summer glow. You can apply it to the entire face for a golden glow or to the high points for a healthy sun kissed look. I received the shade 20M Sand, which is actually too light to be a bronzer on my skin tone. However, I did apply it over my face as a finishing powder and the result is definitely subtle, I almost felt as if nothing was being applied. This shade is matte, but you can also choose from luminous or softly iridescent finishes. There are three more shades after this, so it would be nice to try a deeper shade and see how that performs. There is also a Kabuki Brush designed to work alongside this bronzer if you so wish.

Now for the star of the show, the Artist Plexi-Gloss which I tried in the shade 209 Fuchsia Pink. The pigmented vivid colour is designed to give you a vinyl super shock glossy finish. Prizmalite TM is responsible for the high shine finish along with 360 degree reflective beads, while Plexi-Colour technology features double treated pigments that give the high impact colour. The SuperFlex applicator perfectly covers your lips in one easy stroke for a smooth texture that lasts for hours, it’s available it 35 shades from subtle to bold.

I will admit that I rolled my eyes at the marketing spiel but I have to admit that this gloss is great. I applied it in the early afternoon, went out, ate, drank and with no touch ups at all. There was still a stain left on my lips by the time I washed my makeup off much later that evening. I will definitely look into acquiring more shades come launch.

The Pro Bronze Fusion is priced at £29.50 and the Artist Plexi-Gloss at £16.95.
