Birchbox Breakdown

This lipstick-and-primer duo is one of our favorite collaborations since Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s “Drunk in Love.” The lightweight primer keeps our lip color in place through multiple cups of coffee and at least two consecutive meals. What’s more, it punches up any shade of lipstick and eliminates the need for lip liner, because it prevents the color from feathering around the edges. Throw in MAKE’s incredibly long-lasting Silk Cream Lipstick, which doubles as a nourishing treatment, and you’ll never meet a more steadfast pair of lip products.

How to Use

Sweep a light layer of primer directly onto lips, or dab on with a lip brush. Follow by applying lipstick directly to lips, or using an angled brush.

Nice primer and nice color

I feel like such a dope! I never know how important lip primer was! This really does pump up and smooth your lips. It also smells like cherries which is a nice touch. The red is bold but not too bold. It didn't seem to last as long as the statement says, but I didn't put a lot on to begin with. That might have something to do with it. Overall, very pleased with this!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I've found my RED!

This duo is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a matte lipstick with very true pigment and a primer to help keep it true. It is worth noting that both the primer and the lipstick were thicker (read: less creamy) than I'd anticipated. In particular, the lipstick applies much easier from the tube rather than with a lip brush, which I use to keep the lines clean around my cupid's bow and lower lip. (Note: I'm not impressed with the quality of the bullets themselves, which seem even at first use to be a little flimsy. Hopefully, they'll both hold up well enough.) Both rest smoothly on the lip and have considerable staying power. Though not particularly moisturizing on their own, they aren't at all drying and help create a seal to preserve hydration and prevent chapping. Because the shade of lipstick is very bright, I chose to use an invisible lip liner as well, even though the description of the primer claims this is unnecessary.

Most importantly, I think THIS IS MY RED. (Maraschino Cherry) It's noticeably more pink than the image provided suggests or it looks in the tube, which is a big part of the reason it works. After years of trying out reds with too much orange/yellow/coral undertone (which is really difficult to see in the bullet), this red has just enough pink to be compatible with my own cool pink undertones. For those with similar coloring looking for a classic red lipstick, I STRONGLY recommend trying it out.

Primer & lipstick really stay on!

I think the primer as a base under the beautiful matte color I chose really makes it have staying power and remained on for several hours. Really worth getting!

This looks amazing I would love to try this! I have never had a lip primer and I am sure it does wonders for how long the lip color lasts.

VERY Pink, not so much red

Hmmmm my search for a fab red lipstick continues after this one failed to deliver. I love the idea of a primer and this is a pretty nice one, but the color of this lipstick is just NOT red. It is a darkish pink, and that just aint the color of maraschino cherries the last time I sat at the bar. Oh well, still a nice lipstick but red lipstick hunters beware!
