MAKE Beauty - #MAKEYourself | First Impression

If you have been a long time follower of mine, you will already be fully aware that I love makeup. It is something I have a passion for. So naturally when I have the chance to try out cosmetics from a company I have yet to experience, I jump at it! So today I am going to be sharing with you my first impression review of MAKE Beauty. They were gracious enough to send me 2 makeup samples, a eye shadow and a lipstick.

To give you a little information about MAKE Beauty, they are a company located in (and the product is made in) New York City. Their pieces are hypoallergenic, made without parabens and never tested on animals. In their own words, "MAKE believes there are no beauty rules. That each individual is driven by an artistic approach to their own personal reality. That it's beautiful to be inspired by your own imagination. To embrace a whimsical approach to life. To be outspoken, intelligent, confident and un-self conscious. The spirit of collaboration illuminates our social mission. 10% of every MAKE sale supports women-led, worker-owned businesses in at-need communities through our non-profit partner, We See Beauty Foundation".

MAKE Beauty sent me their Matte Finish Eye Shadow in Alabaster and their Silk Cream Lipstick in Taffy. I first dove in to the eye shadow. I have fair skin, and this color actually was pretty close to my own natural skin color. I figured that the best way to use this would be as a all over lid color, a great base for my eye shadow look. Now to be quite honest, sometimes matte finish eye shadows intimidate me a bit. I find that many can just look ashy and streaky when applied. However I was so surprised and pleased when I tried this one. It has a very creamy buttery formula, It feels very soft on the skin, and it blends beautifully. It goes on quite opaque as well which I also really liked. After priming my eye lid, I applied it all over my lid and up to my brow bone. It indeed was a great base color for me.

Now onto the lipstick. The color Taffy is a mauve - rose pink shade. It is a formula that can either be applied lightly to give a subtle color to the lips, or you can apply a few coats and work up the color. This felt very nice on the lips, and didn't dry them out at all. It truly does have a silky soft feel. I wore this to work, and I really liked how it gave me a nice color, without being too over the top. Very work appropriate. This is definitely a lipstick I would purchase myself. I love how the color looked on me and complimented my skin tone.

So there you have it. My first impression of MAKE Beauty is very positive. I think they have some great products, and I definitely want to try out more of what they have to offer.
