Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème
Apparently I’m on a liquid lipstick kick because it seems to be the only type of product I want to review nowadays. I’ve heard such great things about the Le Marc Liquid Lip Crèmes (C$38) by everyone on Youtube, so I thought I should try it to let you guys know if it’s worth the hype, and whether or not there are any dupes.
The Marc Jacobs Lip Crème is basically a long wearing lipstick melted into a tube. Other than the application process, everything else from the feeling of it, to the wear time is exactly like a luxurious, long-wearing lipstick. It will never dry down to a matte finish, so even when the lipstick on the inside part of your lip wears down (as most lipsticks do), you can still mash your lips together to spread the product evenly.
The Lip Crèmes have a faint smell that’s sweet with a strong chemically scent. Personally, I think that it’s very off putting and makes me not want to put this on.
Like most creamy lipsticks, the top layer will wear off almost immediately from transfer. However, once the Marc Jacobs Lip Crème thins out from transfer or eating, the colour becomes nearly transfer proof. As soon as you eat something oily, the rest of the product will wear off completely (similarly to the Bareminerals Gen Nude Lipcolour that I reviewed here). Overall, the product is fully opaque for the first 2 hours and is completely worn off in about 5 hours.
I have two colours – Hot Cocoa, and Slow Burn (a colour also available in the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème). Hot Cocoa is a very warm brown shade that is very similar to Mac Taupe, Mac Perseverance, Huda Beauty Trendsetter. Slow Burn is a pinky mauve colour. I personally prefer Hot cocoa, because I find that mauve shades don’t look good on my yellow skin tone.
The Marc Jacobs Lip Crèmes come with a doe foot applicator that brings up very little product. Some people say that you need to dip into the tube twice, but I like how the product performs when it is applied thinly, so one dip suffices. The wand is very long and skinny, but not flimsy so application is not an issue.
