Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel Lipstick ($30) is a newly launched long wearing, color saturated lipstick with a shiny finish from the new Marc Jacobs Beauty and Makeup Collection that recently became available at Sephora.
So far my experience with the Marc Jacobs Beauty Collection has been quite excellent! I loved the Shameless Bold Blush I tried out and adored the Lip Lock Moisture Balm so it’s no surprise I adore the Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel Lipstick!
Take a look!
This comes in a simple black magnetic tube. I think the packaging is uneventful on the Marc Jacobs Beauty Collection if I am honest but the contents are anything but.
Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel Lipstick is a highly pigmented lipstick with a gorgeous texture that glides onto lips with nary a tug. Gel is a fitting way to describe it as the lipstick has this gel-like texture as it applies that has a rich, creaminess which is comfortable and lightweight all through the wear. The velvety cream texture is made from tropical tiare flowers which are apparently great for moisture.
The lipstick has a high luminous shine and provides opaque color coverage on a single swipe. The cream finish has no sparkle or shimmer yet still provides a sleek, hydrating shine that’s very dramatic and pretty. Supposedly it contains 3-D optical volumizers so lips appear plumping after application. I didn’t experience any sting from the lipstick nor does it have a cinnamon or mint fragrance or flavor which is commonly associated with plumping lip products (this has a subtle vanilla flavor/fragrance). It felt very moist to me through the wear and I got at least five hours out of it before it faded some and left a staining effect behind.
At $30 it isn’t a cheap lipstick that’s for sure but the formula is well worth its higher price tag. Luxurious lipstick like this deserves a spot in your HG (holy grail) drawer.
