I received samples of MAKE Beauty's Silk Cream Lipstick (Taffy) and Matte Finish Eyeshadow (Alabaster) from BrandBacker. I've never heard of this brand before, so it was quite exciting to try something new. Read more for swatches and my thoughts on these products!

These shades are certainly up my alley, and while they're not what I'd immediately gravitate towards since they're really nothing special, they'd be great for an everyday "no makeup" look. Alabaster is a really nice neutral base for all over the lids and Taffy is a sheer mid-tone pink that adds a subtle touch of color to your lips. I'm not a huge fan of silky lip products with sheer pigmentation, so it's certainly not my favorite but I can see it being an ideal product for those who prefer just a little bit of color.
That's pretty much all I have to say about this set. Decent products but not really sure if they're worth the high-end price. Anywho, thanks for tuning in!
