I do apologise in advance for teasing you with a lipstick that is only possible to get hold of in Sephora. And not just Sephora, Sephora everywhere else but France. Life is just so cruel sometimes. Day twenty five is the beautiful Marc Jacobs Lip Gel in Happy Ending, a hot pink that will make you stand out in the crowd.
First of all, the packaging is just so luxurious. For a $30 lipstick, I do expect it to be luxurious and especially with it being from a brand so fabulous as Marc Jacobs. A black, sleek case with silver detailing, the lid slips back into place with a satisfying clunk. The magnet within the case ensures no lost lids in your handbag and no smushed up lipstick to contend with.
The lipstick itself is a gel like formula. I find it easy to apply, moisturising and although a high coverage lipstick it isn’t opaque and has a sheerness once applied. I always use a balm underneath Marc Jacobs Lip Gel as it does dry out slightly. Although it is a gel formula, I find that it looks slightly matte when applied without balm and has a finish like a glossy stain, however when I wear it with a balm underneath, it feels like a gel based lipstick. Its definitely very unique in its formula, but gives a gorgeous finish.
Happy Ending is a blue toned hot pink and is very vibrant in colour. I think it would suit most skin tones due to its undertones and it can also be built up from a sheer coverage to a higher coverage.
Have you managed to get hold of any Marc Jacobs beauty? What did you get?
