What does the name M2U NYC mean?

M2U = [M(AKEUP) + 2 + (YO)U]. We are the new (makeup) kid on the block. Our company is located in downtown NYC (come say hi if you are nearby!) and it’s energy, beauty and diversity is our biggest source of inspiration!

What makes your products different than others?

Makeup is our passion… providing high quality and stylish makeup at an affordable price is our purpose.

M2U NYC was born to bring Quality, Style, and Value together, for all cosmetic lovers who recognize that quality and trendy makeup should not cost them a fortune. We are able to offer high quality trendy makeups with prices that are consistently 60% to 80% less than typical makeup brands, because we source directly from manufacturers to consumers, and don't use middlemen, celebrity marketing, nor traditional ads. We passed on all these savings to our customers! (To learn more, see Our Story)

Do you test on animals?

Never! We do not test our products or ingredients on animals. We’re committed to being 100% cruelty free, meaning we do not test on animals at any stage of product development, and we will only work with vendors who uphold the same standards.

Do you use parabens in your products?

No way! We don’t formulate with parabens because they are under debate for their safety and found in many cosmetic products. We formulates with a combination of tried and true safe ingredients.

Yes. Our line is 100% vegan. We are certified by PETA as a Vegan and Cruelty-Free brand.

Are your products gluten free?

Yes all our products are gluten free. There are no gluten nor glunten byproduct in our ingredients.

Is your packaging sustainable and/or recyclable? 

Environmental sustainability is super important to us and we are constantly looking for ways to ensure our packaging results in improved sustainability and waste reduction. For example, we eliminate secondary package for all our products so there will be less material going into trash. Our supply chain also has minimum layer of packaging and only use reusable or/and recyclable materials. Also, we produce in small batches so we don’t end up destroying large amount of excess inventories like most big makeup companies do. We recommend cleaning our package and recycle them after complete the usage, but please check with your local department of public works or recycling program as what’s recyclable in one community could be trash in another.

How much is shipping? Do you offer free shipping?

We current offer free standard ground shipping for orders of $30 or more within the continental U.S. For orders under $30, there is a flat rate standard shipping fee of $4.99. We also offer expedited shipping for an additional fee if you just can’t wait (and who can blame you?!).
