Swatches of the New MAKE Aether Collection by Faye Toogood

You might remember MAKE Cosmetics from my review of some of their very first products. Well, now they’re collaborating with Faye Toogood (how cool of a name is that?), a furniture and interior designer, for a new line of makeup. And, guess what? I got to try two products from this new MAKE Aether Collection. Guinea pig time!

MAKE Aether CollectionFrom the collection, I tried:

You love swatches, right? Me too. Thus, you’ll find them below. Just for you!

MAKE Glitter Eyeshadow in Alabaster

When I hear “glitter eye shadow” I get a little nervous. It reminds me of the kind of makeup I wore in junior high in the mid-‘90s. Lots of huge neon flakes of glitter everywhere that I could never seem to remove. *shiver*

MAKE Glitter Eye Shadow in AlabasterLuckily, this eye shadow doesn’t have that problem. It’s more in between shimmer and glitter. The shiny stuff is medium sized, so you don’t look like you just came home from a rave.

And I like that.

Alabaster Eye Shadow SwatchIn these swatches, I’ve got it regular on the left and over the NYX Eye Shadow Base on the right.

As you can see, it has a nice, pretty shimmer. The shade is light and bright, so it would work great as a highlight. I know I’ll be using this often.

MAKE Cream Luminous Lip Gloss in Flesh

You know when any color is called “flesh,” you can’t take it too seriously. Just like the “flesh-toned” Crayola crayons.

MAKE Cream Luminous Lip GlossStill, this Luminous Lip Gloss in Flesh from the MAKE Aether Collection is a nice shade. It’s peachy and warm.

Luminous Lip Gloss WandThe wand is something special. It has an hour-glass design that provides better lip coverage.

Flesh Lip Gloss SwatchAs you can see from this swatch, the lip gloss is super pigmented, nearly like a lipstick.

It has a slight minty scent to it and is also slightly sticky. While I like the color, I don’t really like the stickiness. I wouldn’t wear this on a windy day with my hair down, that’s for sure.

What do you think of the MAKE Aether Collection?

What do you like better: the shadow or the lip gloss? Let me know in the comments below!

Personally, I love that eye shadow. I could take or leave the lip gloss, though. Then again, I’m more of an eye shadow person anyway.
