This is one of those reviews were I feel like I’m am sharing some really good secrets with a friend. Really, you have to try the lipsticks from Make, although I’ve been reading about them on The Nonblonde’s blog. Since then, I’ve received a few items and I’m sincerely impressed–amazed, actually–at the cream, pigmented and high quality of these beautiful products. Today, I’m going to look at a few items from the Make Silk Lipsticks line ($25 each at Barneys.com with free shipping).
The feel of all of these creamy Make colors is surprisingly elegant and luxurious. At this price point, these are a steal. Here is Make Maraschino Cherry on Sandra:
Next up is Make Flamingo, a vibrant creamy pink:

Here is Deep Flesh, a soft nude peach:

Here is Make Putty, a soft neutral nude peach (just an amazing color, really):
Coverage of all of the creams (Maraschino Cherry, Flamingo, Deep Flesh, and Putty) is high-pigment. We got opaque color in a swipe or two. Love, love, love the slight bit of glow that these have. Here is Putty on Sandra:
Finally, here is Petra, the only shimmery sheer color of this group. This one is a sheer warm nude. Because of the shimmer factor, Petra wasn’t quite as creamy-feeling as the rest but it was still quite excellent.
Here is the Make Lip Primer, which increases the wear time and leaves a slight nude color behind. Although I’ve only worn this with Petra, this is a nice friend to have for sheerer colors that do not have long wear time by themselves.
As you can see, the Make Lip Primer ($23) is a soft nude color that roughly matches a light skin tone.
Here are arm-swatches of all colors featured here, including the lip primer:
Overall, Make has an impressive array of colors with a luxurious, conditioning formula. Of these, my favorites were Puty and Maraschino Cherry, without a doubt. You need to try at least one. Available at Barneys.com with free ship (no code, no minimum).
