MAKE Beauty Review

Hello Everyone! Today I bring you a review for the makeup brand MAKE Beauty. They are a new brand to the blog and myself so I will tell you a little bit about them. 

MAKE Beauty designs every product for personal experimentation. Every year they select a resident makeup artist to help create color palettes and limited-edition collections. It is made in NYC. Their products are paraben-free and never tested on animals. A percentage of sales is donated to their non-profit partner We See Beauty Foundation. They support women-led, worker-owned cooperative business across America. 

They sent me a sample of their matte eyeshadow in the color Alabaster and their silk cream lipstick in the color Taffy so let's get to the review!  


When I was first accepted to this campaign I was really excited that I would be able to review some makeup. When I got it in the mail I was pretty disappointed in the packaging. When I looked at the lipstick I wondered how I would be able to properly review it when it doesn't look anything like the full size packaging and it was so tiny. The size wasn't an issue because I was able to test it enough but I obviously can't review the packaging for the lipstick. I can review the packaging for the eyeshadow because it's similar to the full size. I think it looks really nice, and I'm sure the full size looks better. It also has more product than most eyeshadows so that's something to consider. 

Now the product itself I was happier with. The lipstick is a pretty pink that gave me just enough color for a natural daytime look. It felt silky and conditioning on my lips. The eyeshadow is a matte peachy/eggshell. It is perfect for a base and the pigmentation looks pretty good. It would have been nice to try a color that's not close to my skin tone but oh well I love a good base shadow. It blends nicely. In the picture down below you can see both products are nicely pigmented. Both products are $25 and at first I didn't think it was worth it, but when comparing them to other brands you do get more product. And don't forget a portion of each purchase goes to the We See Beauty Foundation! 

Overall I think they are both wonderful products that are perfect for your everyday makeup. Honestly my only complaint is the packaging. When I review products I want to test everything so not being able to check out the full size packaging to determine if the product and packaging combined is worth the price was kind of bummer, but the quality product makes up for it.
