I’ve been smitten by MAKE ever since I was introduced to the bold line of color a couple months ago. Their shades challenge me (in a good way). I’ve been rocking their navy eyeliner just like my favorite black all spring long. And I might just have to thank them for my signature spring lip – Make Silk Lipstick Cream in Scarlet Oak – a rich but wearable orange-y red.
First, these architectural lipsticks are shaped into a angular but actually easy to use beautiful shape. I use the sharp edges to correct and fill, particularly with their super saturated color. Even with all this pigment, I find my lips are moisturized thanks to vitamins, rosehip, soybean and safflower oils.
I’d compare these to my beloved Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick – incredibly hydrating with rich color and long-wearing. The only main difference other than packaging might be MAKE’s mission. It is a true “look good, feel good” product. Not only is it cruelty-free but MAKE donates 10% of retail sales to We See Beauty Foundation, which benefits women-run, worker-owned cooperative businesses. All products are made in New York City.
