You’ve probably noticed that I’ve been posting frequently about lip products, and my recent curiosity with the new Marc Jacobs Beauty line, has led me straight to the Lovemarc Lip Gel lipsticks. As a range of lipsticks that are “color-saturated, long-wearing, [and] gellified,” these lip gels are housed in sleek, glossy-black packaging with a finish that is shiny and non-drying. The texture of these lipsticks is different — “Unlike traditional waxy lipsticks, Lovemarc’s cutting-edge, gellified formula delivers the utmost in creaminess, comfort, and color payoff. An infusion of monoi butter—a velvety cream made from the tropical tiare flower—provides intense hydration, while myrrh extract works to reduce the signs of aging, and an innovative 3-D plumping agent adds gentle volume.”
The Lovemarc Lip Gels are light in texture, but creamy and moisturizing at the same time. The formula is soft and feels comfortable on the lips without being drying or overly glossy. The finish is shiny, but not gloopy; and even after the product has worn off, my lips remain hydrated and comfortable. The shade I chose is “102 Strange Magic,” and it’s a warm nude pink. It’s not so nude it’s reminiscent of porn-star lips, but it’s not baby-doll pink either. The warm tone is flattering without it completely muting the lips out, the the light nude-pink tone is flattering even during the day.
The range is worth looking into and I recommend them — mainly because the lipstick fades remarkably well. What I mean by this is that even after a few hours of wear, the color remains intact without looking or feeling like a stain. Even after eating and drinking, the colors fades naturally so that it doesn’t look flaky or patchy. It appears that the new Marc Jacobs Beauty line has gotten positive reviews since its release, and I appreciate that the line has dedicated effort and time into producing products that are unique and innovative.
