Covet: MAKE Cosmetics

A few weeks (months?) ago, I posted a list of beauty things that I’d been eyeing over at & Other Stories, a brand that I can’t get here in Manila. Here is another brand that is sadly out of reach: MAKE.

MAKE is: “a cosmetic brand that finds beauty in inspiration. Its mission is to encourage self-expression through color by fostering contemporary collaborations between makeup artists and creatives worldwide. MAKE is the first for-benefit beauty brand on We See Beauty and is Made in New York.”

You can read more about MAKE here.

So, I looked through their shop (which, by the way, has very interesting moving campaigns and pictures, when you scroll all the way down) and these are my picks:

MAKE - Matte ES - Purple Sage MAKE - Matte ES - Poppy
Matte Eyeshadow in Purple Sage ($18) • Matte Eyeshadow in Poppy ($18)

MAKE - Satin ES - Great Lakes MAKE - Satin ES - Santa Fe
Satin Eyeshadow in Great Lakes ($18) • Satin Eyeshadow in Santa Fe ($18)

MAKE - Satin ES - Yellow Brick RoadMAKE - Custom Effects Pigment Powder - Reykjavik
Satin Eyeshadow in Yellow Brick Road ($18) • Custom Effects Pigment in Reykjavik ($18)

MAKE - Molten Eyeshadow - Metallic Bronze MAKE - Gel Eyeliner Pencil - Very Brown
Molten Eyeshadow in Metallic Bronze ($18) • Gel Eyeliner Pencil in Very Brown ($14)

MAKE - Cream Luminous Lip Gloss - Flesh MAKE - Matte Lipstick - Jakarta
Cream Luminous Lip Gloss in Flesh ($18) • Matte Lipstick in Jakarta ($18)

MAKE - Silk Cream LS - Deep Flesh MAKE - Medieval Palette
Silk Cream Lipstick in Deep Flesh ($18) • Medieval Palette ($25)

MAKE - Matte Finish Blush - Cinnabar MAKE - Satin Finish Blush - Geisha
Matte Finish Blush in Cinnabar ($22.50) • Satin Finish Blush in Geisha ($22.50)

They also have very odd things like Face Gloss, and something called the Custom Finish Effects: Matte/Dew. Their shop also has magazines like kinfolk and apartamento.

Aside from such interesting products, I’m really impressed by their branding. That is definitely one of my dream endeavors as a designer, but what the people behind MAKE have come pretty close to what I would have wanted to make.

Anyway, those are my picks from the beautiful MAKE Cosmetics!

I would honestly love to do a swap with anyone who can mule these over to me. I am amidst a lot of Asian beauty brands, particularly Korean brands (e.g. Missha, The Face Shop, Etude House, Tony Moly, Nature Republic), bigger Japanese brands (i.e. Shiseido, Majolica Majorca, KATE), and of course Filipino brands (e.g. Snoe Beauty, Human Nature, Fanny Serrano). Let me know if you would be into that!

Until next time, thanks for reading!
