Our Review:

I’ve been wanting to try out their products for a while because I absolutely love the medical aesthetic and shade names.  I purchased the $25 bundle box that they had on their site, which came with 4 matte shadows and a skin graft (highlighter), plus I got one matte shadow I’ve been eyeing for a while – Septic.  Maeder Makeup Labs does not disappoint!  These are some of the best matte shadows I’ve ever tried.  As soon as I opened the package I knew they were going to be good because they’re densely packed and so bright.  They swatch beautifully, the best way to describe them is ultra smooth and creamy.  The highlighter / skin graft is gorgeous as well and the color is amazing.  Viral is a bright frosty pink that is super wet and blinding looking.  I’ve been using everything consistently for a few weeks and I absolutely love them.

I also love the fact that the owner of this brand is a certified Medical Assistant and Phlebotomist who is also a certified Nursing Assistant and mom of 3! Her medical background combined with a severe allergy to talc inspired her to create this awesome talc free, medical themed brand! #BossBabe status, ya’ll!

Here are swatches of everything:


I swatched these over the NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.

And in leu of it being October, here is a look I did using the shadows Latex, Septic, Cremated, and Flushed… HA HA HA HA…


All in all, I highly recommend Maeder Makeup Labs! I love the creativity and the driving force behind the brand.  I can’t wait to see what amazing things are to come from them.
