New York-based beauty brand MAKE teamed up with British designer Faye Toogood (who has worked with Opening Ceremony, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen) and makeup artist Ayami Nishimura to bring us a gorgeous Medieval Palette from the New Medieval Collection.
Using art and natural elements as inspiration, the Medieval Palette comes in the most gorgeous packaging with four Matte Finish Eyeshadows and four Matte Lipsticks:
Darkness – a dark charcoal gray
Cast Iron – a slate gray
Woad – a smoky navy blue
Ultramarine – a bright blue
Putty – a medium peachy nude
Rust – a medium brownish orange
Nude – a yellow nude
Magma – a bright orange red
The colors complemented each other really well and the looks you could do with them are endless. Despite the matte finish, the shadows applied easily with decent and buildable pigmentation. The matte lipsticks, on the other hand, were slightly drying for me and went on like a lip cream with good color payoff.
Overall, a cute palette with great colors that would work on most skintones.
