I was recently introduced to MAKE Beauty, a cruelty-free makeup and skincare line made in New York City, and I think it’s cool that they encourage creative self-expression and personal experimentation. Because it really should be about being beautiful and confident on your own terms, rather than limiting yourself with “beauty rules”.
I also think it’s amazing that 10% of their sales are donated to the We See Beauty Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women-led, worker-owned businesses in the United States.
I have one of their bestsellers to review for you today, and it’s their Satin Finish Powder Blush in Geisha. It is designed to “give your cheeks a translucent glow” and is described as “a long-wear formula that helps to hydrate and nourish skin all day”. It contains lecithin and lauroyl lysine to give the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It is paraben-free and infused with anti-aging antioxidants such as Vitamins C and E.
Geisha is a soft peachy-pink with a subtle sheen. It tends to be sheer but easily buildable, so it provides a subtle and natural flush of color, which can be layered for a dramatic effect.
I don’t find it to be particularly long-wearing as the color fades after only a couple of hours (and your mileage may vary), but I do like the texture because it applies evenly and blends smoothly. Plus, the satin finish adds just enough luminosity without any shimmery particles.
Have you heard of MAKE Beauty before? Have you tried anything from this brand?
