Maite Makeup Company Launches

Get rolling with new lipstick, eye shadow, and more

maite cosmetics!

Squirt of foundation, swipe of mascara, dab of lipstick. Applied at a red light. Whatever.

If your beauty routine depends on a rearview mirror and traffic stops, brake for Maite.

Created by Maite Rivera and Luisa Mendez-Flaz, cosmetic connoisseurs with backgrounds as aestheticians, Maite offers basics (foundation, compact powders, primer) for the diverse skin tones in Miami’s melting pot. But it doesn’t gloss over trends.

Use Fierce eye shadow for a smoky eye and Naked Truth lipstick for a nude pucker. Or make lips the focal point with Lulu’s Passion. Mineral-based lipsticks Senorita, SoBe, and Mystic Pink are best-selling shades, while bold glosses like Exhibitionist and Red Room demand attention.

We treated ourselves to a limited-edition set comprising lipstick in I Love Haiti fuchsia, lilac-frost Jeremie mineral blush, and the Jacmel eye shadow quad.

And then put it on in the car.
