“Give a woman the right lipstick and she can conquer the world” they say.
But the never ending quest of finding a complementing shade of nude lipstick according to your skintone is quite a task, isn’t it? Perhaps, only if makeup brands started “inventing” universally flattering lipstick shades.. it would have lessened our pain of hunting for the right ones for ourselves!
Well well, what if I told you there is already a makeup brand which is totally killing it with the shade variations in their makeup collections, that too from 1984?
MAKE UP FOREVER, a French cosmetics brand created by MUA Dany Sanz caters to various skintones and undertones. After MAC, MUFE is actually the most-loved makeup brand of makeup artists, specifically of those artists who are into stage makeup. And I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t be on someone’s favorites list, considering the versatility they offer – which, by the way, is an important thing for any makeup brand when they are going international!
Since the mid 80s and the 90s, MUFE has been constantly keeping up with beauty trends and launching new shades from time to time. They mostly launch their lipsticks as limited-edition, but there is this one particular lipstick shade which has stuck around since its launch in 1990. That is right – 29 years, and counting – because it is still as popular as it was at the time of its launch.
What is so special about it you ask? Hm, this beauty from MUFE called “Rose Wood” is a nude lip shade that was tested on 25 skin tones and was specially designed to flatter all of them!
