MAKE Beauty is a brand completely new to me. It's based in New York City, never tested on animals and paraben free. 10% of the proceeds they collect go to the We See Beauty foundation, which supports women-led and worker-owned businesses across the country. How cool is that? I love that.
I was sent just a couple small samples to try, but plenty of product to get a good feel. I was sent the Matte Finish Eyeshadow in Alabaster, and the Silk Cream Lipstick in Taffy.
The Matte Finish Eyeshadow is a perfect creamy skin-tone color that's great for blending. A full size is 0.1 oz and retails for $25. That seems pricey, but 0.1 oz is quite a bit of eyeshadow (for reference, MAC pans are only 0.04 oz). This color is nearly identical to my skin tone, so if you're not super pale, this will probably show up on your lids. For me, this works great to blend out any eyeshadow look. It can be applied dry or wet, so experiment away to get the look you're aiming for.
The Silk Cream Lipstick in the shade Maraschino Cherry is gorgeous. It retails for $25 for 0.12 oz, and it feels nice on the lips. This shade is the perfect classic red - you know what I mean, that amazing confidence boosting, super feminine and sexy red. I love it. It's formulated with a bunch of good stuff, including safflower oil, rosehip and antioxidants that help moisturize.
I'd love to experiment more with MAKE Beauty products and try some other goodies from their line. Lord knows I'll probably make an order at some point. I'd definitely give their website a browse and see if there are any goodies you can't live without.
