Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer: Le Charm #112


Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer: Le Charm #112 ($18 for 13 ml/0.43 fl oz, Sephora) is a glitzy warm coppery pink. Le Charm is loaded with tons of sparkle in gold, pink, silver, copper - it has a similar complex finish to Petra (reviewed here). The formula for this one seemed to be slightly thinner than the other two I purchased, but still thicker than most polishes I own. Out of the three shades I bought from Sephora, Le Charm had the best application. It goes on smoothly and covers the nail entirely with just one coat. Dry time seemed to be very quick. I've worn this color for a few days now - you definitely need a good top coat to extend the wear. I've tested it with Chanel's Top Coat on one hand and no top coat on the other. Without a good layer on top, tip wear and chipping happens within one day. The complexity of the color makes it look pinkish at some angles. In different lighting it flashes more copper. This one is my favorite out of the three I purchased.




Here are swatches with two coats, no top coat. You can see how it looks slightly pink in some photos while in others it's more coppery/peach:




I found it unique compared to other shades. I don't have anything that comes close in undertone or complexity. For a glitzy pink, I love that it has just enough coppery/peach that it doesn't look too metallic with the silvery glitters. The balance of color is perfect. Compared below to Guerlain Jardins de Bagatelle, Shu Uemura P996 (old discontinued shade) and MAC Soiree.


Bottom line: love. Marc Jacobs Beauty is available at Sephora as an exclusive. Have you checked out the Marc Jacobs line?

  1. How incredibly beautiful - the color and your photography! It's like a pinker version of Orly Rage (which is pretty close to MAC Soiree)

  2. What a GORGEOUS shade. It kind of reminds me of Orly's Rage, only a little more copper-y. Thanks for sharing the swatches!

  5. Okay I have got to ask you - how do you like Guerlain? It looks so pretty in the swatch and I dont remember seeing a review.....love your polish reviews!

  6. Thanks for the review. Everything I have seen is metallic from the line. I ordered Starlet Palette, which was composed of only metallic shades, which made me wonder, well 7 shades, why not spare one or two for another finish. Anyway, I don't think I am feeling the brand, but I guess that is just me.

  7. Hi Sabrina,

    MARC JACOBS Le Charm is so unique --- I think there's intrigue in this rosy / peachy / coppery shade as it's an enigma of a color that's so hard to place. It's almost like a sunset, but not quite!

    Wonderful swatches, as always :)

    1. Hi Emmanuelle - there are many Sephora locations in NY. Do you know where in NY she will be visiting?

      The US locations are located on the US website here:

      If you can't access it and it defaults to the France site, shoot me an email sabrina@thebeautylookbook.com
