Ahhh, MAKE Silk Cream Lipsticks are such things of beauty! I was lucky enough to find Taffy, described as a medium pink with purple undertones, in my last Barneys New York Love Yourself Gift Bag, and I couldn't be more happy with the shade or the formula!
Vivid, saturated color that does double duty as a protective moisturizing treatment with antioxidant vitamins, rosehip, soybean and safflower oils. Aloe and chamomile extracts further condition lips. Feather-resistant and intensely pigmented in true-wear shades.
Additionally they put their money to good use by supporting a great cause.
Makeup on a mission. MAKE is proud to donate 10% of retail sales to the nonprofit organization We See Beauty Foundation, which benefits women-run, worker-owned cooperative businesses. All products are made in New York City.
The formula is an antioxidant rich moisturizing lip treatment with stunning pigmentation. While I do find Taffy a bit moisturizing I don't find it akin to a lip balm in that regard. The texture is silky smooth with the perfect amount of cushion for comfortable wear, but it doesn't have so much slip that the wear-time is radically diminished. Therefore, MAKE Silk Cream Lipstick in Taffy clings to the lips and lasts for several hours without the need for a touch up (I have gotten anywhere from 3-5 hours of wear-time depending on whether or not I was eating or drinking). The color is buildable for maximum intensity, but can easily be sheered out. The color is definitely a blue-based mid-tone pink that will surely delight pink lippy lovers-- it really is stunning!
Not tested on animals, paraben-free, hypoallergenic
In addition to the Cream finish, MAKE also has satin and matte lipstick formulas.
