Marc Jacobs Blacquer & Bad Behavior Le Marc Lip Crème

Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer (000) Le Marc Lip Creme
Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer (000) Le Marc Lip Creme

Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer (000) Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep black with neutral undertones and a cream finish. It was intensely pigmented–one of the most pigmented shades in the range that I’ve tried–with a creamy, easy-to-apply texture that glided over the lips and spread the color evenly across the lips. It wore well for six and a half hours, but it was a bit drying after four hours of wear. Anastasia Primary #2 (Vol. 1) (P)(100% similar). MAC Stallion (LE, $21.00) is glossier (95% similar). Make Up For Ever C604 (P, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Naughty (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). NYX Chambord (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $17.00) is brighter, lighter (95% similar). MAC In the Spirit (LE, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Bad Behavior Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark burgundy with warm, brown undertones and a satin sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly. The texture was lightly creamy, light-medium in weight, and didn’t drag or tug on the lips. The color wore well for seven hours, left a slight stain behind, and was a touch drying after four hours of wear. Maybelline Smoking Red (P, $7.49) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Manbun (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Bette (P, $32.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar). MAC Runner (LE, $17.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Estee Lauder Desirous (P, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Bowl Me Over (LE, $17.00) is more muted, lighter (90% similar). MAC Diva (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Prim (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Besame Noir Red 1930 (P, $22.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Overview

The formula claims 10-hour wear with “vivid pigment” and a “rich, velvety” texture that is “ultra-hydrating.” In general, the Le Marc Lip Creme formula is creamy and glides on easily with good pigmentation (most of the time), but I have not found the formula to be hydrating–at times, even a bit drying–and while the wear is longer than average, it is more likely between four and eight hours, depending on the shade. It also has a sweet, floral scent.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Up All Night Petites Le Marc Lip Crème Collection
Marc Jacobs Beauty Up All Night Petites Le Marc Lip Crème Collection

Marc Jacobs Beauty Up All Night Petites Le Marc Lip Crème Collection ($49.00 for 0.25 oz.) includes five miniature-sized lipsticks–all shades are available individually, should only one or two catch your eye–in the brand’s Le Marc Lip Creme formula. The formula claims 10-hour wear with “vivid pigment” and a “rich, velvety” texture that is “ultra-hydrating.” The formula is creamy and glides on easily with good pigmentation (most of the time), but I have not found the formula to be hydrating–at times, even a bit drying–and while the wear is longer than average, it is more likely between four and eight hours, depending on the shade. The lipstick has a sweet, floral scent.

Value

  • Le Marc Lip Creme: $30.00 for 0.12 oz. or $250.00/oz.
  • Total Value: $62.50

No Angel (242) is a muted, medium-dark peach-brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff paired with a creamy, velvety texture that sat fairly well on the lips and did not settle into lip lines further over time (there was a very tiny amount initially). The color wore well for six hours but was neither drying nor hydrating. Estee Lauder Covetous Nude (P, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Uber Beige (P, $35.00) is glossier (95% similar). Urban Decay Uptight (P, $17.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Honeycomb (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Jetsetter (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Too Faced Chocolate Honey (P, $21.00) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Stark Naked (DC, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Maybelline Clay Crush (P, $7.99) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Too Faced Melted Chihuahua (P, $21.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Bite Beauty Blondie (P, $24.00) is cooler, lighter (80% similar). Colour Pop Platform (DC, $6.00) is less glossy, brighter, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Slowburn (246) is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had full color coverage that applied with smooth, even color that did not drag or pull on the lips. The texture was creamy, light-to-medium in weight, and easy to work with on the lips. On me, it lasted for six hours and was a touch drying. Tarte Cabana Boy (P, $22.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Cami (P, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Fig (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Makeup Geek Old Soul (P, $12.00) is glossier, cooler, less pigmented (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Oh Miley (200) is a bright, bold, medium-dark red with strong, blue undertones and a cream finish. The color applied beautifully with smooth, even coverage, but it was just a little shy of being fully opaque. The consistency was a bit thinner, but it wasn’t clingy and glided on easily. This shade wore well for nearly eight hours on me, which made it one of the longer-wearing shades in the range for me. It was slightly drying after six hours of wear. MAC Como La Flor (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever C404 (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). Estee Lauder Boldface (P, $32.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Life's Blood (LE, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Betty Boop Red (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Carina's Love (P, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Tarte Swamp Family (LE, $20.00) is more muted (90% similar). Make Up For Ever Red Ink (LE) is less glossy, darker (90% similar). NARS Rouge Improbable (LE, $28.00) is more muted, darker (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Miss Scarlet (208) is a deep red with warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture was light-medium in weight, so it had a thicker, more velvety consistency that was comfortable to wear and apply as it glided well across the lips. It had rich color payoff, though not quite opaque, and it wore well for seven hours. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS Shirley (P, $32.00) is brighter, lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Hex (P, $17.00) is more muted (95% similar). NARS Olivia (P, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Mona (P, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar). Maybelline Burgundy Blush (P, $7.99) is less glossy, lighter (90% similar). NARS Eva (LE, $32.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Mistletoe (LE, $26.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Tarte Manbun (P, $20.00) is less glossy, darker (85% similar). Estee Lauder Desirous (P, $30.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Scandal (226) is a deep purple with warm, pink undertones and lighter pink and violet pearl. It had semi-opaque color payoff with an emollient consistency, which meant that the color was prone to sliding around and settling into lip lines. Of all the shades in the set, this one would have me most concerned about feathering for anyone prone to that (it did not feather or bleed on me, though). The color lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating. It did seem to apply a bit better, overall, compared to the permanent version I have. MAC Yung Rapunxel (LE, $17.00) is glossier, warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Vinyl (P, $21.00) is more muted (90% similar). Estee Lauder Extrovert (P, $30.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Panda (P, $6.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Smoked Purple (P, $17.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). MAC Instigator (P, $17.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Plague (LE, $17.00) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). MAC Power My Spirit (LE, $19.00) is more muted, darker (85% similar). NARS Train Bleu (P, $27.00) is darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Theo (DC, $35.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Colour Pop Leather (P, $5.00) is cooler, lighter (80% similar). MAC Which Witch (LE, $17.00) is more muted, darker (80% similar). MAC Model Behavior (P, $17.00) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
