Marc Jacobs Willful Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “vibrant deep orchid.” It’s a bold, bright, medium magenta purple with cool undertones and a satin finish. The coverage was mostly opaque, while the consistency was creamy, comfortable to apply, and had more slip than some past iterations I’ve tried in this formula–to that end, it seemed more prone to settling into the lip lines after four hours of wear. It didn’t make it to the 10-hour wear time claimed, but it lasted for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Doo Wop (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar).
