Marc Jacobs has released some new lip products in a number of different formulas. If you didn't have 1000 Sephora Beauty Insider Points for their Marc Jacobs Point Perk, don't fret because you can now buy the colors individually. The new colors out now:
- Lip Vinyl Full ($28) in Satisfaction and Shooting Stars
- Lip Vinyl Sheer ($28) in Shiny, Magic and Superstar
- Lovemarc Lip Gel ($30) in Cabaret (VIB Online Exclusive at Sephora)
- Kiss Pop Color Sticks ($28) in Pow, Heartbreaker, Wham, Pop Arazzi, Crush, Pop Rock, Pop, Headliner and Smack
I purchased the Cabaret Lip Gel, Satisfaction Lip Vinyl and Shooting Stars Lip Vinyl. They are richly pigmented lip colors that have a fall vibe.
Cabaret Lip Gel is a muted plum in the tube but applies as a bright plum that pulls a bit fuchsia. The pigment on this one is extremely rich and blends easily with a few dabs. I've been a huge fan of the Lovemarc Lip Gel Formula (see Role Play and Serevine). The formula is unique with a slightly jelly-like texture but in a lipstick form. The pigment is really phenomenal and wears quite long. I find the ones I've tested to be full coverage but still natural looking (they aren't too heavy). Testers at Sephora can look less than appealing as they are usually well-tested (I didn't test them on my lips) but they are definitely worth looking into.
Satisfaction Lip Vinyl is described as a pinkish mauve with a copper sheen. On me this one is a bit more caramel colored with brown tones, but you can definitely see some pink in there. The pink prevents this one from looking too brown on the skin. There is a bit of a shimmer in the tube but on the lips it's very finely milled. This is my first time testing the Lip Vinyl Full formula. They are similar in size and scent compared to the Lip Vinyl Sheer (see Kissability, Overprotected and Heart Shaped). They have that same minty feel but with a vanilla scent. They do have a slightly tingly sensation. The difference is that the Lip Vinyl Full glosses have full coverage with an easy to blend creamy texture. The tips are also stiffer with a pointy tip making them easier to apply.
Shooting Stars Lip Vinyl looks like a sparkling mauve in the tube but it goes on a brown berry with minimal shimmer. It's very dark on me and most of the time it pulls more brownish but in certain light looks more red.
Here they are swatched side by side:
Nudestix Soul Lip & Cheek Pencil (swatched)
Hourglass Canvas Extreme Sheen (review)
Tom Ford Black Orchid Lipstick (discontinued)
MAC Ruby Patent Polish (reviewed)
NARS Clubmix Velvet Gloss (swatched)
Overall I give these a huge thumbs up. The pigment and texture are excellent. They are a bit dramatic for summer (right now) but are still classic shades that you can wear any season.
Cabaret Lovemarc Lip Gel is available in a 1000 Point Perk at Sephora or for purchase as a Sephora VIB Online Exclusive ($30). Satisfaction and Shooting Stars Lip Vinyl - Full ($28 each) are available now at Sephora and Marc Jacobs Beauty.
