The Jakarta is much more purple and bright than it appears in the picture. The shape makes it difficult to apply and it doesn't last. Definitely not worth the high price.
This Shade is everything
It blended perfectly with my copper brown skin. Made me look exotic :)
I like the smooth finish. A little pricey though.
Love this lipstick! I got the matte red and it is such a perfect shade of red. It is bright but has blue undertones so that your teeth do not look yellow.
Beautiful Lipstick, Colors are Misleading
As far as I can tell, there is very little visible difference between the finish of the MAKE Matte Lipstick and the MAKE Silk Cream Lipstick. Both give a soft lip look without shimmer or gloss. However, the texture of the two options is significantly different. Where the Silk Cream is smoother, the Matte is thicker and less moist, but it gives a wonderful, buildable lip color. Because the matte texture clings to the lip and doesn't (by design) shine, you do need a good base texture on the lip. Make sure to exfoliate and moisturize to remove dead skin that might clump the color.
The colors are misleading in the pictures provided here. I own both the Jakarta, which is a deep, vampy burgundy with a lot of purple tint, and Tulipa Palermo, a very, very bright peachy pink with cool undertones. And, despite the color in the tube, which looks like an orangey tan, I've seen images of Tangerine on the lip, and they are similarly bright. Very bright.
It has more of a brown tone than I thought
I just received my Make- Jakarta(color) matte lipstick. I love the texture. The only down side it's a lot more brown side v.s. the deep wine color the picture and description leads you to believe. I suppose that is the problem with buying online.
this lipstick is beautiful -- i never thought i could pull it off but it manages to look pretty and dramatic but not too dark on my face. it's a really pretty color for fall and winter
This product is nice but its not as matte as i hoped it would be. I stick like it though. Its smooth upon application. I use it daily.
I had a sample of MAKE lipstick and I had remembered liking it so I purchased this full size tube. I was really disappointed with the product. My lips are scrubbed and smooth, yet this left patches of inconsistent color, it bled outside my lip lines and smeared right off with any gloss over it. The one upside was that it had no chemical smell and that is always a big plus for me.
A little too heavy
I'm more into the light touch in lipstick's. This one has a nice tint, but because my skin is older, it seems to be too thick feeling.
loved this lipstick!
Really loved the creaminess and full color of this lipstick. I also like how the top of the lipstick is designed because it allows you to apply it perfectly on your full lips. it allows application in every angle. It is a bit pricey but if you are looking for one perfect lipstick, this is it.
