Quick Reviews: Marc Jacobs Lip Lock Moisture Balm, Brow Tamer Grooming Gel, Magic Marc’er Precision Pen

Marc Jacobs Makeout (10) Lip Lock Moisture Balm ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “buttery, rich lip balm with SPF 18 that locks in hydration.” Right now, it’s available in one shade–Makeout (10)–which is really just clear/translucent. If you’re familiar with Fresh Lip Treatments, I magicmarcer this will seem and feel familiar, but it’s not quite as emollient–it doesn’t slip as much, which I do like, because I feel like it’s so easy to run through a Fresh Lip Treatment and over-apply. Lip Lock Moisture Balm is lightweight, lasts about two to three hours, and is moderately hydrating. Personally, it doesn’t hydrate as much as my current (and ever continuing) favorite, Jack Black. It smelled lightly of mint (and a little herbal something rather), and depending on how much you put on, sometimes there was a slightly bitter taste (I didn’t notice it most of the time, though). (I bought this product, the other two were press samples, just to be totally clear.)

Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil Review & Photos

The applicator is a “24-karat gold-plated, anti-bacterial palladium,” slanted and slightly curved tip. You lightly press to dispense the product to apply.

MAC Cheery Cherry & Sweet Tooth Mineralize Lip Balms

MAC Cheery Cherry Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm ($19.50 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy mid-tone blue pink.” In the tube, it looks like a light-medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and an iridescent pink pearl. It doesn’t impart much color–it adds a slight pinker tinge to my lips and a glossy shine. There is only a hint of shimmer, so it looks like a glossy balm or clear gloss (so dupes abound).

MAC Glace Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm

MAC Glace Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm ($19.50 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy pale baby blue.” In the tube, it’s a cloudy, pale blue with iridescent pink-copper shimmer. It’s actually very, very similar to MAC Chillin’, except Chillin‘ is a bit milkier. MAC Ethereal is more shimmery.

MAC Baking Beauty Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm

MAC Baking Beauty Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm ($19.50 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy light peach.” It looks like a yellowed tangerine in the tube, but applied, it takes on a lighter, peachier coloring with subtle pink shimmer. It is similar to shades like NARS Buenos Aires, MAC Kiss Me Softly, and MAC Poetic License.

bareMinerals Tangerine Trance Loud & Clear Lip Sheer

bareMinerals Tangerine Trance Loud & Clear Lip Sheer ($15.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “sheer citrus orange.” It’s a sheer, warm orange when swatched. Applied, it tints my lips a noticeable warm tangerine–not too red, not too orange. It’s the least like my natural lip color, but from a normal distance, it really looks natural and not at all like I’m wearing a lip color. Benefit Cha Cha is similar in color, but it has a very different formula.
