Marc Jacobs Beauty Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl Shooting Stars

I actually got my Marc Jacobs Beauty Shooting Stars Lust for Lacquer ($28) free with the Sephora Marc Jacobs Beauty 1,000 Point Reward recently!

I know many folks expressed a strong dislike of the gift set but I thought it was rather a generous gift even though I had to spend a million dollars to get it ha…!

If you do like Marc Jacobs Beauty Shooting Stars Lust for Lacquer it is now available as a individual purchase at Sephora and Sephora.com.

Sephora calls the shade a mauve with shimmer. For me it’s a brownish warm plummy red with shimmer. I like brown reds and pinks but sometimes they can go wrong. This isn’t a shade that goes wrong but isn’t one I love either but none the less it is a nice color for Fall looks.

I’ve tried and loved the Lust for Lacquer formula in the past. This has a cool tingly feeling on my lips and a thicker texture that’s quite nicely hydrating and full opaque on two layers. It’s very smooth and creamy with a nice long wear of four hours with migrating or feathering. It doesn’t have a tacky feel nor does it feel sticky on. It does leave behind some shimmer when it wears away. The taste is unusual as it kinda has a minty play-doh kinda thing going on but it isn’t unpleasant to me!

Shooting Stars might not be for everyone but I think the Lust for Lacquer is an incredible formula. It’s light yet long wearing and quite comfortable with tons of pigment. Sure, it’s expensive as sin at $28 but honestly, if you’re going to be indulging in a high end lipgloss Marc Jacobs Lust for Lacquer definitely knocks the socks off high end gloss formulas all around.

I believe it sold out online but the Sephora Perk might be available in stores still or you can of course, indulge in an array of gorgeous shades at Sephora and sephora.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    I love it! I cashed in my points that i’ve been holding onto forever for this set. This is my first experience with the lippie products and they’re beautiful. This will work really well with some fall looks. not to rush our summer away, but i can’t wait to bust this pair out! well worth the splurge =)

    • Isabella Muse

      yay ;-D glad you like ruth! it really was a lovely set for Fall 😀

        I’ve gotten sucked into the world of fan fic, which i didn’t even know was a thing! I can’t get enough of veronica mars stories and fangirl so hard when my fav stories get updated. there’s a moonlight/vm crossover that is multi parted and can’t wait to go home and read a couple more chapters! i smh at myself =D

        • Isabella Muse

          ahaha congrats welcome to the wild and weird world of fan fic. I’m a huge fan fic girl too! my freaky good nature loves the wincest ones 😀 as well as harry potter/ffsog/ and SN anything 😀 have fun!

          • Isabella Muse

            ps did you see the new chucks? cupcakes, Simpsons, Oh my!

  • Fancie

    Love this color on you! I really like Marc Jacobs glosses and this makes me want another lol

  • Ruth

    I DID see the cupcake chucks and the maggie & lisa ones, I think i need them =)you have to translate for me, I got the wincest, but what is ffsog and SN? but FF is a hole that i could get completely sucked down and happily never find my way out again!

    • Isabella Muse

      I got both, I’m bad 🙂 I had a $10 coupon so I thought what the hell hehe. sn=supernatiral ffsog=fifty shades of gray 🙂 lord yes..considering when I read a book and it ends I’m crushed and want the story to go so FF kinda gives me that gratification of a never ending story line for my fav books/characters/tv shows and movies!

      • Ruth

        I love me a good coupon! esp for some new chucks! you’re not bad and i fully encourage you to get more! I didn’t get into fifty and tried to watch SN when it first was on but it didn’t do anything for me. I heard after the first season, it became freaking awesome so i’m going to try again. One of the reviewers for a book review on amazon mentioned fan fic and i’ve been sucked into it for months since =D

        • Isabella Muse

          me too!!!!!!!!!!! ;-D it was but now it got stupid again but I’m hoping for better this season 😀 do try to catch up, it’s kinda awesome imho! just don’t start writing it, just as addicting 😀

          • Ruth

            do you write fic in your copious amounts of spare time? 😉 I just got a journey’s coupon in the mail so do i get the cupcakes or the maggie & lisa pair? I just started watching orphan black, only seen 1 ep but most certainly going to give that one a go and see if it goes on my must see list. and of course- Doctor Who comes on Saturday!

          • Isabella Muse

            haha yeah that’s my dream to have copious amounts of spare time 😀 I tried my hand at it but I feel dumb lol! BOTH!!!!!!!!! ;-D wahooo can’t wait for Saturday 😀 Orphan black is pretty awesome you’ll like it!
