Make Up For Ever Plexi-Gloss #102P swatches and review on BeautyJudy

Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss recently launched in a color and texture range that goes from sheer to opaque, from neutral to bold and pearly to nonpearly finishes.

Make Up For Ever says that the glosses contain “Plexi Color Technology to deliver up to five hours of color impact while 360-degree, reflective shine beads maximize shine. The exclusive, artist-designed superflex applicator features a lip-hugging shape that allows for precision and control, and the super-loaded split-tip has a unique contour to sweep on the ideal amount of lip gloss,” according to the brand website.

You can see in the above photo that the applicator has a cut dent in the side. A good amount of gloss, good for one coat on my lips, gathers on the applicator in the middle near that dent.

These don’t really smell like anything sweet or floral, in fact, they smell odd; like maybe plastic? The scent doesn’t linger.

A quick back-of-hand swatch:

And here’s how 102P, described as a pearly sweet beige, looks on my lips:

I’m a big fan of the color, because it goes so well with bolder eye looks and is sheer and very nude. This type of beige nude gloss is a staple in my collection, and I’m definitely keeping this gloss.

The wear time was pretty good for a gloss, a few hours with fading of the glossiness feeling. I did feel the need to reapply. Some of the color settled into the lines of my lips but I don’t think that would be noticeable with more opaque colors and it certainly wasn’t very visible outside of my up close shot of my lips!

Plexi-Gloss hugs my lips in a way that is not tacky or tight, but doesn’t feel slippery, either.

There are 35 shades available on Sephora.com and on Make Up For Ever’s site here. They retail for $19, and you get .23 fl oz. of gloss.

Have you tried Plexi-Gloss yet? Plan to? I’d like to try one of the more opaque shades, like 500 (lilac).

    That lip color is so gorgeous! I love wearing a shimmery peach in the Summer! I hope I’m not put off by the scent too much!

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s a perfect neutral, and I love that shimmer!

    I got one of these as a sample & the color is pretty— but the notch in the applicator is odd to me!

    • BeautyJudy

      I agree – I think it’s a reservoir but I still had to dip back into the tube

    I have tried a lip gloss in the past that smelled like plastic as well, I remember thinking it was a bit off… but the shade is so pretty and nice on you.

    • BeautyJudy

      I can deal with the scent but I hope they consider changing it!

    Such a great everyday shade! I wasn’t a fan of the scent either!

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s a great shade but yes – stinky!

    Not liking that it smells like plastic…haha, but I absolutely love that color! That’s definitely something I’d wear every day!

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s perfect color-wise!

      Thanks Miranda!

    I was wondering what the Plexi-Gloss were like so I’m especially happy to read this review. Very pretty color on you.

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Marcia! I bought one that’s more opaque, can’t wait to try it!

    I like this color! That peachy shimmery shade has just enough pigment for a subtle hint of orange 🙂

    • BeautyJudy

      Exactly! I love it.

    That gloss is so pretty. I like the shade and the light shimmer.

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s a great neutral especially for bright eye makeup!

    Not sure what I would think of a plastic scent. Glad it doesn’t linger! The shade looks nice.

    • BeautyJudy

      Yeah that was disappointing but the gloss is nice

  • http://beautylitfromwithin.blogspot.com Nidia Doherty

    Weird that it would smell like plastic.. maybe going with the theme of the name? I’d like to see how the more opaque colors look and feel, but that gloss does look good on you!

    • BeautyJudy

      Me too! I picked up an opaque purple one!

  • Cindy Ingalls

    Haven’t tried these out yet. The color looks great on you.

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s a great neutral!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    Very pretty. Those shades look great together, very spring-y!

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Allison!

    I’m a big fan of the color, too! It looks like something totally wearable for me.

    • BeautyJudy
