MAKE is the first for-benefit colour cosmetics line launching on WeSeeBeauty.com – a for-benefit marketplace of ideas, stories and products that support the cooperative movement. One-third of all MAKE product sales will support the non-profit organization, the We See Beauty Foundation, dedicated to incubate and accelerate women-led, worker owned cooperatives. The foundations first project is establishing a cooperative in Brooklyn, NY called Do Good Be Beautiful, that will create and sell its own healthy cleaning and personal care products.
MAKE encourages creative self-expression and introduces a new way of interpreting and celebrating beauty. In addition to the complete range of core products, MAKE will pair two unique artists each season to create a concept collection. The first partnership pairs furniture and interiors designer Faye Toogood (who has worked with Opening Ceremony, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen) with makeup artist Ayami Nishimura to create the New Medieval Collection.
I was sent the following products complementary for review:
MAKE Soft Focus Foundation ($32.50 USD) — Delivering flawless coverage and a velvety finish, our Soft Focus Foundation helps to correct uneven skin tones and smooth fine lines through revolutionary, light-diffusing micro-spheres. Lightweight polymers allow skin to breathe, while natural bark extract helps control shine. Ginseng, green tea extract and squalane help to provide anti-oxidant protection and hydration. Currently available in 16 shades from very light to very deep.
Usage: Apply after moisturizer and primer using sponge or brush. Blend well and let set a few minutes.
Not tested on animals, cruelty-free, vegan, fragrance-free, paraben-free, hypoallergenic
What I think: This is a beautiful foundation. It is so light on the skin, but it gives great coverage. The finish is dewy, but not shiny. It wears really well, too!
MAKE Matte Finish Blush ($22.50 USD) — Look fresh as a summer rose with our luxurious Matte Finish Blush. The high-quality, jet-milled pigments provide true, long-lasting color and wear. Plus, the talc-free formula, enhanced with the anti-oxidant power of vitamins A, C and E, is gentle enough for sensitive skin.
Usage: Using a blush brush, sweep blush into hollows of cheeks with a light dusting on top of cheekbones. Buildable color can be layered on for desired hue.
Not tested on animals, oil-free, talc-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, hypoallergenic
What I think — This matte blush is available in 6 shades. The color above (which I have) is called Tutu. It really brightens my pale skin, but I think it would look great on all skin tones. I love the matte finish, but it is not cakey at all.
MAKE Satin Finish Eyeshadow ($18 USD) — Give an eyeful with our gorgeous, softly luminous Satin Finish Eyeshadow. In a variety of jet-milled pigments with fine shimmer and vitamins C and E for anti-oxidant protection. Apply dry or wet for a more dramatic finish.
Not tested on animals, paraben-free, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic.
What I think — This comes in 22 shades. I have Ivy, an intense forest green with an emerald undertone. It is perfect for a smoky look, in the crease or as an eyeliner. Pretty!
MAKE Silk Satin Lipstick ($18 USD) — Get lippy with our unforgettable, satin-finish lip color. Rosehip soybean and safflower oils provide lips with all day hydration, while the softly lustrous shades also soothe and nourish with chamomile extract and vitamins A, C and E. In a range of true-wear colors for every mood.
Not tested on animals, paraben-free, hypoallergenic.
What I think — The shade above is Cordoba, a medium rose with a golden pearlescent glow. It is very pretty on, but also extremely moisturizing! Available in 12 shades.
