I love to put my own spin on things whether it is mixing and matching makeup or my outfit for work. MAKE Beauty products were designed to spark your own desire to create. These are completely user friendly makeup products but are professionally formulated. Each product was designed so you could experiment with it to fit your own style. I love all the different ways I can use this makeup including wearing it wet or dry, alone or layered, subtle or super-pigmented. Perfect for day, night or even special occasions. One of the things I love about MAKE Beauty products is that they are paraben free,  not tested on animals and are hypo-allergenic.

I received two miniature samples of the eye shadow and lipstick to try out and while it was a challenge to get a complete layered type of look, the makeup performed well and the colors were truly exquisite. I received Matte Finish Eyeshadow in Alabaster and Silk Cream Lipstick in Taffy. They both had lovely textures and applied smoothly on my skin and lips.  

The MAKE Beauty collections for lips, eyes, cheeks and skin offer rich formulations and exquisite palettes. I can just imagine how pretty a look you can create with the wide range of colors, finishes and textures they have in their product lines. I prefer a lighter, more natural look for day but I will go all out for a special evening out with my hubby or a formal event. MAKE Beauty has the products that let you achieve a perfect no-makeup or modern minimal look or you can rock a totally more pigmented finish if you prefer. 

I received a mini sample of the Silk Cream Lipstick in Taffy. This is a truly moisturizing lipstick that provides bright color. It is super creamy but has good staying power which is an unusual combination in the makeup world. This creamy lipstick is filled with antioxidant vitamins including rosehip, soybean and safflower oils. It even contains Aloe and chamomile extracts to offer additional conditioning effects for dry lips. It was surprisingly feather-resistant and stayed on for hours. I looked at some of the other colors online and was impressed with the highly pigmented colors like Heliotrope and Magnolia. There are 18 colors to choose from in this Silk Cream Lipstick line.  MAKE Beauty suggests that you apply this lipstick over primer and liner for the best and most long-lasting results.

• Usage: Apply to lips after primer and liner.
• Full Size – 0.12 oz. (3.4g)
• Price $25
• Not tested on animals, hypoallergenic.

I also received a mini sample of the Matte Finish Eyeshadow in Alabaster.  I love a fresh neutral like Alabaster and find it adds a little pizzazz to a simple look. You will totally make them look again when you apply this stunning, intensely pigmented shadow. Alabaster is a soft eggshell shade that has peach undertones. It is matte so it is perfect for day or night. It comes in an array of 34 blendable shades. The velvety matte powder goes on smoothly too. I found it to be quite crease-resistant and it stayed fresh for most of the day without touch ups. It is comprised of an oil-free formula that has Vitamins C and E help to provide antioxidant protection for the delicate eye area.  You can apply dry or wet for a more intense finish depending on the look you are trying to achieve.

• Usage: Gently sweep over lids.
• Full Size – 0.10 oz. (2.8g)
• Price - $25
• Not tested on animals, hypoallergenic

If you love turning heads and finding the latest on trend colors and styles then you definitely should visit MAKE Beauty and see all the latest products they have. I love the colors I received and plan on picking up each of them in full sizes. I can't wait to see what new products and colors are coming for the summer. Each year MAKE Beauty selects a resident makeup artist to collaborate with an expert artisan and creative outside of the beauty industry to inspire MAKE Beauty color palettes and create limited-edition concept collections. They even have tons of makeup videos to help you achieve the perfect on-trend look.
