Marc Jacobs Beauty Dizzy Spell (104) Lovemarc Lip Gel
Marc Jacobs Beauty Dizzy Spell (104) Lovemarc Lip Gel

Marc Jacobs Beauty Dizzy Spell (104) Lovemarc Lip Gel ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “warm peach pink.” It’s a warm-toned peach with a faint hint of pink. The subtle pink hue is only noticeable when applied, but it looks more peach-orange in the tube and swatched. MAC Touche (LE, $20.00) is sheerer, rosier. Givenchy Beige Plume (102) (P, $36.00) is similar, slightly pinker. MAC Antonio’s Girls (LE, $16.00) is more matte, lighter. MAC Sweet & Sour (LE, $16.00) is warmer. MAC To the Future (P, $18.00) is more muted, cooler-toned. MAC In a Heartbeat (LE, $16.00) is darker. Burberry Pink Apricot (301) (P, $30.00) is slightly darker, more matte. See comparison swatches.

The Lovemarc Lip Gel formula is supposed to be a “color-saturated, long-wearing, gellified lipstick.” I’ve really enjoyed this formula–one of my new favorites–but I believe this is the first shade that’s fallen short of expectations. I noticed a slight tendency for the formula to bunch up when applied to lips, so it doesn’t look quite even, and the consistency had a little graininess to it. The color coverage was mostly opaque, and the texture of the lipstick was very slick and emollient, so it did feel like it was slipping around when I wore it. This is a more emollient formula in general, but this particular shade seemed extra wet. It wore for three hours on me, and it was hydrating during that time, but it settled into lip lines over those hours.

    This is the only Marc Jacobs product that I own – love the color! Love the blush you are wearing in the above picture! :)

  4. From the swatch, this lipstick looks so promising! It looks very natural on your skintone which would translate well on mine as well. It’s such a bummer that the formula didn’t really work out for this shade :(

  5. Hehe, this shade would look catastrophic on me! I’ve seen lots of other things from the Marc Jacobs line that I liked, thought – wish we could get it here!

  6. This explains a lot. It’s the only color I bought of this formula and I haaaaaate it. It doesn’t last at ALL and I was so concerned because you talked about really liking the formula and I was like… am I broken? The color is really pretty, but darn I really know how to pick the wrong one out of a lineup haha.

    Christine, do you have any info on when Marc Jacobs’ beauty range will be available in the UK and/or EU?

  9. The more I wear this formula the less I like it. I have a light and dark (Strange Magic and Showstopper). On me, it’s too soft. It bleeds, wears poorly and unevenly and just isn’t worth the price. Showstopper is absolutely stunning shade wise so I make the effort to reapply often. I usually don’t have problems with bleeding. Maybe different formulas for different people….and this one just doesn’t suit my lips….

  10. Cute color, but the rating is turning me off a bit. Christine, I love your makeup here!

  11. I was expecting a lot more from this one :-(

  12. I have thus lipstick and I agree. I’ve only tried it a couple of times and it settled into my lip lines almost immediately. Definitely a lippie that requires a liner and freshly exfoliated lips! I have the pink shade too that I haven’t opened yet. I’m hoping it’s much better!

  13. Christine, what blush are you wearing? It looks beautiful!

    Although I don’t own this color, I dislike the whitish undertone of this color. I’ve choose a few that had the same problem but it’s sometimes difficult to tell. I realize it may work for others, this doesn’t look good on me.

    Hi What is the blush you are wearing here?
    Thanks.

    This range seems so hit or miss! It’s a shame it’s not more consistent. I love the blush you’re wearing in these pictures – what is it, if I may ask?

  17. May

    Wow, I love this color! It’s a very pretty nude.

  18. I think the color suits you really well, Christine. I wish it performed better though. By the way, what are you wearing on your cheeks? It’s so pretty! :)

    I love this color! I already have sweet & sour and considering the formula isn’t that great I’ll pass. I also love the blush you paired with this lip color! The marc jacobs line has too many other pretty colors I’d rather own :)

  20. the color is so so pretty ..

  21. You look so pretty in this pic! Are you wearing your Crazy Meteorites Radiance Powder again?! ;)

  22. This is such a light shade, yet surprisingly nice looking on you, Christine! The color reminds me of a Black Label NYX lipstick I had a couple years ago, I THINK it was called India

  23. You have nice lips and this formula makes it appear roughly textured – pass!
