MAKE Cosmetics Silk Cream Lipstick in Heliotrope- pics, swatches, review

Hello, Beautiful!

Earlier this month I reviewed the MAKE Cream Luminous Lip Gloss, which instantly became a new fav of mine for the color and formula. I have another MAKE lip product to share with you in this post, their Silk Cream Lipstick in the shade Heliotrope. Check out of my full review, including all the product info, after the pics!

MAKE Cosmetics Silk Cream Lipstick
Shade: Heliotrope


MAKE Cosmetics Silk Cream Lipstick Info & Review:
Cost/Availability: $18.00 (0.12 oz full size). Available on the We See Beauty website and on the Birchbox website.
My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Kisses

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. Not tested on animals. Paraben-free. Hypoallergenic. 33.3% of all sales on We See Beauty is donated to the We See Beauty Foundation that establishes and supports cooperatives.

Currently available in 16 shades. I have the shade Heliotrope, which is described as a rich fuchsia pink with yellow undertones. I'd say that is an accurate description. It's a bit more vibrant in real life than in the photos - for sure a bright one! Nice cream shade with no shimmer. The shade Heliotrope is slightly staining on the lips due to the vibrant pigmentation. There are other shades I'd love to try, like Flamingo, Magnolia, and Pink Clay.

If you couldn't tell by the photo, the pigmentation on this lipstick is really nice. It goes on smooth and feels comfortable on the lips. The wear is average for a lipstick; but of course how long it lasts on you will depend on how much you're talking, eating, drinking, kissing, etc.

The actual shape of the lipstick bullet is a bit odd for my lip shape; it's too squared off and with such bold, vivid colors this is definitely one I'd need to apply with a lip brush to get the best application/look (I just applied it straight from the tube for the photo of the lipstick on my lips). I think, for me personally, the shape of the lipstick bullet is the only con of this lipstick. Your lip shape may be able to handle the shape just fine; I think I just have small lips!

Overall, I think this is a really nice quality, creamy lipstick that is very well pigmented. If you're looking for vibrant, creamy lipstick then you may love this MAKE Silk Cream Lipstick!

  1. I got a sample of this lipstick in sandstone from birchbox and it is really great! I've been wanting to try out new shades. This one is beautiful.
