For the first blog post of 2017, I', reviewing items thanks to Influenster and Marc Jacobs, I received a complimentary gift of the Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme and their (P)outliner!
I am gonna start off with the review of the (P)outliner which has already been out released for quite a while now, but was sent as a bonus product with the Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme campaign.
The packaging is very much in line with the aesthetics of all the other Marc Jacobs beauty products. Silver and black with the shade color at the end of the pencil which makes it easy to distinguish without having to take out the cap.
The shade I received is in (Nude)ist. A perfect nude-brown lip color. It is actually only slightly darker than my actual lip color so I enjoy it very much. Having a nude lip liner shade is great to layer on every lipstick color. You definitely can't go wrong.
It is retractable so you don't have to worry about having to bring a sharpener in your makeup bag and sharpening it.
The (P)outliner is gel based and collagen infused. It is smooth, creamy and glides on easily on the lips. I had no bad thing to say this liner. It is everything that I want in a lip liner. What's even better is that you can wear it on it's own and you're good to go!
Now to the main event, The Marc Jacobs Le Mark Liquid Lip Creme. It is formulated with Brazilian cupuaçu butter and collagen for a rich and creamy texture that keeps the lips moisturized. It also claims to be an 8-hour wear lip product.
The Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme is in a black tube with a little peekaboo hole for shade reference. It has a thicker doe foot applicator for good measure! ^^
I received the shade 450 Yours To Try, a nude pale peach shade, reminds me of a creamsicle actually. I personally don't like this shade on me because I overall look sick with this color. It just didn't suit my skin tone. It's such a bummer because the formula is actually pretty good. It is a bit thicker than the other lip creme type lip products that I've tried before. It doesn't dry to a matte finish. It remains creamy, like a creamy, thick gloss if you can't imagine it. It is very pigmented and moisturizing on the lips. Although it claims to be an 8-hour wear product, I don't believe that that is correct since this only lasted a good 3 hours maximum on me and even less with eating and drinking.
I do think that the Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme is quite a good product however, it does not live up to the 8-hour wear claim and the shade I received wasn't suited on my skin. A darker shade would be better suited on me or at least something that matches the (P)outliner in (Nude)ist. The lip liner is amazing though and that is something that I really love!
*This product was sent to me for review but as always, my reviews are honest and based on my own opinions and experience.**
