Ogee Makeup Review: The OGs of organic beauty

One of the best things about made in the USA products is they’re often better in, like, every way. Not only are the products usually super high-quality, but they’re usually better for the environment. We’ve dropped the bomb that your dishes and your cleaning products may not be as “clean” as they seem. But there’s another group of products in your life that may be sneaking in some UGLY side effects: your makeup. Luckily, Ogee is a clean makeup and skincare brand made right here in America!

If you know anything about us, you know we are NOT about toxins. We want nothing to do with nasty sh*t that’s going to screw with our skin, hormonal balance, and more. Noooooo thank you! So, when it comes to makeup, we are all about using clean beauty products. “Clean” means free from toxins, which means they’re better for your skin and overall health!

That’s why we’re freaking PUMPED to share our latest fave brand that’s killing the game: Ogee Makeup. Ogee Makeup is a favorite of Marisol Nichols, Natalia Dyer, coveted celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow, and more celebs who praise the product’s performance. Plus, we love it, because not only is it non-toxic and super high quality, but it’s American made!

Using made in the USA clean beauty products can truly benefit your skin, giving you that dewy look everyone is striving for. And, not only are American made non-toxic beauty products good for you, they’re good for the environment, local economy, and workforce, too! 

So, we know USA made clean skincare and makeup products are definitely the move, but is Ogee Makeup really worth the hype? Lucky for you, baddies, we’re going to let you know. Let’s get into it!

Ogee Makeup Review

First impression: this sh*t is BOUGIE. 

Between the luxury minimalist branding, the newly coined term “Hydraganics,” and the fact that the products are made with 70-99% organic ingredients, we’re thinking daaaaaaaaaaaamn, babes! This sh*t is nice! And, none of this would matter if the makeup didn’t look incredible, but it does. Guys, Ogee is the good stuff!

So what are Hydraganics, anyway? They’re a potent blend of hydrating solutions that are certified organic to the highest standard. Ogee Makeup uses plant-based, GMO-free solutions for their skincare and makeup products to ensure they’re always the best for your skin and the environment. The Hydraganics also include infusions of naturally-derived, powerhouse actives, such as Bakuchiol (a natural alternative to retinol), Edelweiss Flower Stem Cells (a powerful alternative to injectables), and Acmella Flower (an alternative for filler-like benefits).

What’s the point of this hydration solution? To make your skin look and feel amazing! Because when your skin is healthy and hydrated, your body filters out toxins more easily, your skin looks younger, and your makeup products apply way better. It’s a super welcome addition to already great makeup products!

Who Makes Ogee Makeup?

Ogee Makeup was founded in 2014 by Abbott Stark and Mark Rice, and it’s headquartered in Burlington, Vermont. Their goal was to push the envelope of organic certification and clinical efficacy AKA they wanted to make truly organic products that work as well as they WERK. All of their products are blended, filled, certified, and packaged in the US.

Best Ogee Products

Sculpted Face Stick

This skin-loving stick is rich in a hydrating blend of essential fatty acids and oils. The formula includes Green Coffee Oil to stimulate collagen, Sal Tree Resin to refine the appearance of pores, and Organic Tapioca powder to smooth the appearance of skin and absorb excess oils. This is makeup that goes beyond makeup’s job to actually nourish and uplift your skin. Plus, the sheer color and shimmer add a buildable glow that accentuates your natural features.

How to use: Apply directly to the skin after using primer. Apply this stick onto cheeks, lips, brow bone, eyelids, or your body to highlight, contour, and blush.

Beyond Clean Volumizing Mascara

This is another product that goes beyond what we need makeup to do in order to nourish and condition our eyelashes (Are we sensing a theme, here?). Beyond Clean Volumizing Mascara utilizes a strengthening blend of jojoba oil and oat-derived proteins to keep your eyelashes healthy and lush. Infuse them with rich mineral pigments to volumize the appearance of fuller, thicker lashes.

Ladies, those eyes are about to POP.

How to use: Apply to lashes. Build for fuller, bolder volume.

Tinted Sculpted Lip Oil

Want your lips feeling oh-so-kissable and silky smooth? The Tinted Sculpted Lip Oil uses a solid blend of organic, cold-pressed jojoba oil and butters that melt instantly onto lips to moisturize. To top it off, it’s got a conditioning layer of beauty enhancing, buildable natural color. 

Infuse the lip oil with organic peppermint essential oil to soothe the lips, along with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and long-lasting vegetable-derived volumizers to plump.

How to use: Expose using the gold twisting mechanism. Apply one layer for a sheer wash of color or additional applications for a more opaque look. 

Seeds of Youth Serum

This power-packed serum instantly hydrates, boosts radiance, and firms skin appearance with a targeted blend of hyaluronic acid and Edelweiss Flower Plant Stem Cell technology to maximize plumpness and minimize visible signs of aging. The hyaluronic acid works to hydrate and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you reveling in your firm and luminous skin. 

How to use: Use morning and night after cleansing and toning. Massage 1-2 pumps onto the face and neck from the center outward. Gently tap to stimulate absorption and follow with face oil.

Jojoba Glow Face Oil

This is a biocompatible, non-comedogenic face oil that delivers instant hydration, encourages a healthy microbiome, balances moisture, and enhances the look of restored skin. It is rich in antioxidants, allowing it to shield the skin from environmental stressors. The face oil reinforces the appearance of firm skin by boosting it with elastin and collagen, giving your skin some SERIOUS bounce-back-ability.

How to use:  Apply evenly onto clean skin, following serum or elixir. Use morning and night.

Botanical Brilliance Exfoliating Cleanser

This cleanser is a triple-action exfoliating cleanser that buffs away impurities for visibly smooth, soft skin. It combines jojoba beads, seeds, and waxes into a powerful micro-exfoliating trio that gently removes dead skin cells, purifies pores, and reveals glowing skin. It’s infused with a hydrating blend of aloe vera, jojoba oil, and vitamin E. So, it exfoliates while also depositing a hydrating layer of nourishment. 

BONUS: this product also comes with a golden turnkey that can help you minimize product waste!

How to use: Apply to wet skin and massage in circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Add warm water to create a subtle lather and rinse thoroughly. Use as often as desired.

Glacial Clay Detox Mask

This mask is known for its detoxifying benefits. It’s got a mineral-rich formula that works to clarify congested skin, minimize the appearance of pores, balance oil production, and revitalize dull complexions.

Infuse it with a soothing blend of aloe and rose that nourishes the skin without causing dryness.

How to use: Apply evenly to clean skin with spatula and allow to set up to 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water in a gentle massaging motion to remove.
