When it comes to beauty products I have my fair share. I read review (much like the this one your reading) and I do my own research. Finding products that work, aren’t going to cost too much, and aren’t bad for you are my main focus points when it comes to makeup. I also like finding products that are made locally, helping the nearby economy. So when I was given the opportunity to try a local brand, MAKE, I was ready for the challenge.
MAKE is a beauty company based out of New York City. They believe that beauty has no rules, and everyone has their own artistic approach. Be inspired, whimsical, outgoing, outspoken, intelligent, and confident. The products are sourced without parabens, and are not tested on animals. They also donate 10% of sales to the We See Beauty Foundation, supporting women-lead, worker-owned cooperative businesses across the Americas.
The product lines they offer are the typically; Beauty (face, eyes, lips, cheeks) & Skincare (cleansers, toners, moisturizers). I was lucky enough to try to products from their beauty line (pictured below). I received the Matte Finish Eyeshadow in Alabaster and Silk Cream Lipstick in Taffy.
The Matte Finish Eyeshadow in Alabaster is a soft eggshell with peach undertones, perfect base shadow for most any look. The shadow was extremely velvety on the skin, and had great pigmentation. Vitamins C & E are amongst the ingredients in the shadow and help to provide antioxidant protection on the delicate eye area. This can be used either wet or dry. Being my skin tone is a little pale at the moment from the winter it was a bit hard to notice the color, however I think once I do get a little color this Summer this would be a great go to for a fresh swipe of color across the eyelid.
The Silk Cream Lipstick in Taffy was is a medium pink with purple undertones, I was classify this as one of the go to lipstick colors choices in the mauve family. The lipstick has vivid color, and was very creamy. Rosehip, Soybean, Safflower Oils are amongst the ingredients in the lipstick and help to provide a protective moisturizing treatment. The lipsticks are feather resistant and true to color. As you can see for the swatch I took below, this color is very pretty even though I am fair-skinned at the moment. A great color tone for most everyone I think, and it was nice how it wasn’t heavy or drying on the lips.
In all I was pleasantly surprised by the company and products as a whole. Plus the cute packaging didn’t hurt either. I look forward to sampling more of their products soon.
