Swatch Saturday: Marc Jacobs Beauty LoveMarc Lip Gels Photos & Swatches

As promised, here are the remaining swatches of the Marc Jacobs Beauty LoveMarc Lip Gel ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) shades. Marc Jacobs Beauty has a deal where you can get any three shades for $70 (instead of $90) (use code LIPKIT, ends 12/16), which I took advantage of when I bought these twelve. I still haven’t heard back whether or not this formula is being discontinued (as Sephora only shows eight of the 17-shade range, and of the eight, five are out of stock).

Deal! Marc Jacobs Beauty Lip Gel Trio for $70 (Save $20)


Marc Jacobs Beauty is offering customized Lip Gel trios for $70 when you use code LIPKIT, now through 12/16. They’re normally $30 each, so it’s a savings of $20 (and brings down the individual cost to $23.33). I was able to add multiple trios (I ordered the ones I’m missing) as well, and they actually rang in at $23.33 (making it $69.99 for three).

When I was looking up the full price on Sephora for this post, I noticed that Sephora only had eight shades, while the full range stands at 17 (all available through the Marc Jacobs Beauty’s site), so now I’m wondering if these are on the chopping block… I sent an email over to the brand to see if we can find out what the status is of them and will update when I hear back.

Are you hauling any? (I did pick up some, and I selected 1-day shipping, so I can try to get them swatched for those considering–I will do my best!)

Marc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Dare & Boom Boom Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl

Marc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Dare (208) Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl ($28.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark berry purple.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned purple with a glossy, creamy finish. It was mostly opaque with smooth, even color coverage that wore well for five hours on me. The formula was lightly hydrating, comfortable to wear, and not sticky. Finding dupes is harder for this type of formula, as most glosses aren’t this opaque. Milani Ravish Raspberry (06) (P, $5.49) is much pinker, lighter. Maybelline Amethyst Potion (045) (P, $8.99) is sheerer, lighter. MAC Heroine (LE, $15.00) is brighter. MAC Narcissus (LE, $20.00) is lighter, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Gypsy & Fame Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyls

Marc Jacobs Beauty Gypsy (204) Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl ($28.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft burnt orange.” It’s a brightened, tangerine orange with warm, yellow undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had fairly opaque color coverage, but it applied oddly–the color “bubbled” all over, so it looked a little odd. It was more noticeable to me when I was applying it than it seems to look in photos, but you can see that the color on the upper lip isn’t really smooth or opaque all-over. The consistency is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and mostly non-sticky, but the way it applied left something to be desired. It wore well for four and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating. It is mint-scented and had a slightly minty-taste, but it didn’t bother my lips. The opacity of the color made it more unique. MAC Grand Pumpkin (LE, $15.00) is sheerer. NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is sheerer. NARS Wonder (P, $26.00) is darker. MAC Eclectic Edge (LE, $15.00) is darker, more shimmery. Guerlain Tangerine Vlam (P, $30.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Marc Jacobs Beauty The Night Owl (214) Style Eye-Con No. 7 Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty The Night Owl (214) Style Eye-Con No. 7 Palette ($59.00 for 0.24 oz.) includes seven shades ranging from matte beige to green-teal to eggplant. It’s a new(er) and permanent addition to the palette range that released in the fall. Overall, it’s a nice palette with six of the seven shades performing well with good color payoff, long-wear, and softer, easier-to-use textures. The one that was the major miss was drier with a stiffer consistency that made it harder to blend and use on the eyelid. It seemed like a more unique mix of shades to me, which is nice to see.
