Hey lovelies! Welcome back to my blog. For today’s post I’ll giving you guys some swatch pictures and my honest review of some sample products that I got from MAKE Beauty! Their products are proudly made in New York City. All of their products are hypoallergenic, made without parabens and never tested on animals. They are a little bit pricey, but I feel like sometimes you just need to spoil yourself and buy some great products. (And I definitely will be buying the full size of these products + some more after I was able to try these!)
So, I was luckily able to receive a sample of their Matte Finish Eyeshadow in Alabaster. It’s a velvety matte powder that goes on smoothly and is extremely pigmented. The shadow is a oil-free formula that is crease-resistant and looks great all day long. It is formulated with Vitamin C and E for antioxidant protection for your delicate eye area. These shadows are able to be used dry or wet, if you want a more intense finish. They have tons of colors so you will definitely find one (or 4) that you like!
I think Alabaster is an amazing color for all over the lid and would be a really great base shadow for everyone. It is so smooth and pigmented. It isn’t powdery at all, but I expected that since it is a little bit more expensive than other brands, but I think it’s worth it. I definitely will be purchasing the full size to add to my eyeshadow collection.

I was also able to try a sample of their Silk Cream Lipstick in the color Taffy. This is a saturated lipstick that also acts as a moisturizing treatment with antioxidant vitamins, rosehip, soybean and safflower oils. There is also aloe and chamomile extracts that will further condition lips. The lipstick is a feather-resistant formula and all of the colors are intensely pigmented in true-wear shades.
Taffy is a beautiful color. It’s a very subtle pink with purple undertones. It applied so smoothly on my lips and didn’t settle into the fine line on my lips. It feels like I’m not wearing anything on my lips, which I do like. It’s a cream lipstick so it won’t dry you out like matte lipsticks. I am in love with this color and wish I could marry it, if that was legal. I truly recommend it if you are looking for a new subtle everyday shade that you won’t ever get tired of. I will also be purchasing the full size to also add to my lipstick collection.
