MAKE Beauty describes their Silk Satin Lipsticks as “softly lustrous shades formulated with rosehip, soybean and safflower oils to provide all-day hydration”. They are formulated with chamomile extract and vitamins A, C and E to soothe and nourish the lips. Let’s take a look at Rose Chintz.

Rose Chintz is a light-medium pink with bluish pearlescent sheen.

I have to confess I’m not a fan of shimmer and frost in lipsticks, but this one was surprisingly flattering and wearable. The formula has finer pearl particles so it has a smoother, non-gritty texture that doesn’t settle into lip lines. It just creates a more dimensional visual effect or an the illusion of fuller lips.

The color fades after only two hours of wear, but it doesn’t claim to be long-lasting. It does feel hydrating on the lips, so I really don’t mind reapplying this throughout the day.

If you’re not familiar with this brand, MAKE Beauty is a cruelty-free makeup and skincare line made in New York City that promotes self-expression and self-confidence through personal experimentation.

            1. Hi Jen,

              I came across your blog while looking for swatches of some MAKE Beauty products – particularly lip products. Is it me or have you noticed a lot of the colors in lip and cheek products are leaning toward the warm/yellow/peachy part of the spectrum. My coloring favors cooler, plum-rose-berry etc., thus my search for blue-based shades. I have tried a number of MAKE Beauty products: matte and satin eyeshadows, matte and satin blush, and other face items: concealer, eye primer, marine lip balm set, soft-focus powder and powder concealer, eyeliner and brow liner … wow, I really have tried a few products, haven’t I? I first tried MAKE Beauty products because I liked its practice of donating 10% of profits to the We See Beauty foundation in support of its mission toward more women-led and owned businesses. Also, the prices seemed fine and, because the founders are highly respected in the beauty industry, I felt the products would be cutting-edge, high value and innovative. I’ve not had a bad experience with any of the products and the customer service is good. My favorite products are the matte eyeshadows, which I believe are comparable in quality to any high-end I’ve tried (Serge Lutens, Shu Uemura, and Kjaer Weis among them). The eye primer is also good – comparable to Smashbox). The satin blush is highly pigmented and, as you pointed out, luminous but not too shiny (you said it better!). The matte blush is too flat for me. The soft-focus powder and powder foundation are good but the range needs more in the way of cool and neutral shades. The gel eyeliner is very good (I’ve tried most brands) and is my 2nd favorite after Chantecaille’s excellent gel eyeliners. The mascara was OK, the make-up remover excellent, the concealer, named soft-focus corrective duo, is in a cleverly designed container with a translucent setting powder on top and the pigmented formula on the bottom. The formula is just OK – a bit heavy and noticable on my skin. Standouts for me include the beautiful-to-look-at Terrazzo Bronzer, Tower Isle, and Terrazzo matte eyeshadow, Strawberry Hill. Both accent my green eyes and auburn hair/freckles/cool to neutral complexion and are unlike anything I’ve seen elsewhere. The other standout is the Celeste e Verde Palette which is one of the collections resulting from collaborations with a variety of creative people ranging from furniture designers, independent film makers, make up artists, and more. Check out the website to view the short film featuring the inspiration for the palette – it has such beautiful imagery. MAKE Beauty is so interesting to me because the brand’s “story” is about taking an artistic and experimental approach to self expression using makeup. It hasn’t featured celebrities in trendy advertising or promotional efforts. MAKE seems to be all about creative individualism which is an appealing and unique approach these days. Make backs up its message with high quality, well-priced products with an artsy edge. It needs more blue-based color products and, given that its products aren’t widely available, I wish it had more product descriptions and swatches on its website. MAKE Beauty’s website should use a design approach like the website “Beautylish” which has a very useful way of presenting product shades. OK – I just thought I’d write a few sentences – phew! Thanks for asking for feedback – it’s more fun to write about makeup than it is to work which is what I haven’t been doing these past not so few minutes … Continued luck with your blog, Jen!

              1. Hi, Jennifer! Now that you mentioned it, the majority of MAKE Beauty lip and cheek products do seem to have that yellow/peach/orange undertone, which I personally don’t mind, but (like you) I’d like to see more berry/plum/mauve shades. I’d really like to try their Silk Cream Lipstick formula, and I have my eye on Taffy and Sandalwood, but they’re currently sold out. I definitely need to try their face products next. Their face primers sound very promising — have you tried them? Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! I appreciate you taking the time to write a thorough and thoughtful comment.
