MAKE UP FOR EVER 12 Flash Color Case: Review & Swatches

The MUFE 12 Flash Color Case is a product I have wanted for years (literally), and I finally got my hands on it this last weekend at IMATS. What draws me to this product is its versatility: these 12 cream base colors can be used on the eyes, cheeks, and lips, and you can mix the shades to achieve virtually any color you desire. A palette like this gives almost unlimited options for colors to incorporate into your makeup. I personally am most excited to mix these for eyeshadow bases (because they are oil based, I will be using a primer underneath)!

The palette includes a nice range of colors and two different finishes (metallic and creme). I like that it includes your basic colors (red, green, blue, yellow), as well as some not-so-basic colors (peach, turquoise, pink, etc.). And the fact that the palette includes both a white and a black means you can darken or lighten any shade to your satisfaction.

All of these colors are safe to use on the cheeks and lips, and all but three are safe for use on the eyes. The red based shades (pink, peach, red) are not safe for the eye area. I've never been sure why this is, but perhaps the red dye is more staining? Now for swatches!


This palette retails for $95 and can be found at Sephora online. What are your thoughts on this product?

  7. I think some red dyes can cause irritation when used on some people's eye area.

  13. Theoretically, you are only paying a little less than $8.00 a color, however, I wouldn't use half of those colors and I'm not into paying for something I'm going to have to mix up myself - even if it is only $8.00. Overall, not a fan.

  14. I would never pay 95 dollars for this stuff. There are a lot of cheaper palettes with more wearable colors. I am sure, one of the cheaper brands will make a dupe. Half of that price you pay just for the name.

  15. I want this sooo much!
    But I could definitely get it cheaper if I'm honest. You see these kinda paint pallet things in drug stores (:
    Maybe there not as good, I dunno but they are waaaay too expensive for me!

  17. you probably could find a cheaper version, but i don't think the quality would come close.. with this you barely have to use any at all, and the pigmentation is brilliant.. i love mine and i think it's worth the price. :)
