Brace yourself ladies, the new Marc Jacobs Beauty Summer 2015 Collection hits stores in a few days. I’m quickly becoming a huge fan of Marc Jacobs Beauty, and while fairly pricy, it’s worth every penny. This summer, Marc introduces his newest muse; The Lover, captured in a provocative new colour palette of rose, wine and cream. Both lips and nails are radiant and shiny with a glossy texture, thanks to the new Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquers and Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquers. Shimmery metallic, soft buttery mattes and lustrous sheen provide intense colour payoff in the new Style Eye-Con No.7 Plush Shadow Palette. Finally, eyes and brows are bold, to help complement this look with new Brow Wow Defining Longwear Pencil and an extended assortments of Highliner Gel Crayon liners.
Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer features a triple shine complex and a blend of high-performance ingredients to provide an extremely high-shine, incredibly glossy, brilliant finish to the lips. It delivers maximum colour payoff that’s true its rich colour pigments that provide true opaque coverage with an unstoppable wear time. It has a mint scented fragrance that gives a refreshing feel to the lips with unbelievable luster. It’s also infused with antioxidant-rich apricot and passion fruit to help volumize, hydrate and protect the lips.
Although Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer claims to provide maximum coverage and “shine like 30 coats of lacquer”, I actually found the few shades I own to be quite sheer. I’m totally fine with that, cause I tend to reach for transparent shades in the summer anyways. It does give a semi- opaque colour coverage that applies fairly evenly. It has a lightweight, creamy smooth texture that glides onto the lips with ease. It is somewhat tacky, without being overly sticky, which in return, adheres to the lips beautifully. It does give an incredibly high-shine, glossy finish that looks stunning when the light hits the lips. It’s comfortable to wear throughout the day and stays put for a few hours before slowly starting to fade. It is slightly hydrating, but if you have extra dry lips, or looking for added moisture, you might want to apply a lip balm underneath. It does have a slightly minty scent to it, but without a minty flavor. It comes in 18 wearable shades, inspired by Marc Jacobs’ favourite music, and looks equally as beautiful on their own as they do paired over your favourite lipstick. It retails for $34.
