Today I’m so excited to be reviewing the MAKE Beauty Silk Creme Lipstick in Taffy and Matte Finish Eyeshadow in Alabaster! I was lucky to be sent this sample through BrandBacker free for review. I love the vision of the MAKE Beauty company – they believe everyone should embrace their vision of beauty (whether that means all out colorful makeup or simple neutral makeup). MAKE is made in New York City, is paraben-free and never tested on animals. 10% of sales are donated to the We See Beauty Foundation, supporting women-led, worker-owned cooperative businesses across the Americas! How incredible is that? You can find out more information about the company and browse all their products here!
I tried these out as soon as I received them in the mail and was pleasantly surprised. I’ve never tried MAKE beauty before, so I didn’t know how good the products were. The colors are just gorgeous. I’m a huge fan of neutral makeup and both of these shades are perfect fits for that kind of look. Although, if you’re a fan of more colorful, vibrant looks they have products to fit your needs!
I’ll start with the Matte Finish Eyeshadow. I received the shade Alabaster which is a soft peachy, cream color. It’s beautiful, but unfortunately for me it matched my skin tone almost perfectly; therefore didn’t show up as brightly as I would like. It says you can apply it wet to get a more vibrant color, but I didn’t try it that way. It works great as a brow bone highlight for me. The eyeshadow itself is super silky and soft! It glides on like velvet and just feels so good on my skin. I love the matte formula. I seriously spent a good amount of time just swatching it on my hand because I couldn’t get over how velvety it was. It’s infused with Vitamin C and Vitamin E to provide protection for the eye area. Overall I’m very happy with this product and will definitely try more shades!
Next, the Silk Creme Lipstick in Taffy. I’m obsessed with this shade! It’s kind of a mauve-y pink color and is probably my new favorite lipstick. I’m already planning on getting the full size! The pigmentation is stunning. The photographed swatch is ONE swipe of the lipstick. I’m so blown away by it. It’s absolutely the creamiest, smoothest lipstick I’ve ever used. It glides on so effortlessly and looks flawless. Ugh! I can’t even come up with enough words to describe how amazing it is! It has really good lasting power and makes my lips feel moisturized and looking fantastic. It says that it’s infused with antioxidant vitamins, rosehip, soybean oil, safflower oils, aloe and chamomile extracts.
