Marc Jacobs Beauty Heart Shaped (308) Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl
Marc Jacobs Beauty Heart Shaped (308) Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl

Marc Jacobs Beauty Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl ($28.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) comes in twelve shades, and during Sephora’s preview sale, I bought two shades. It’s supposed to be “an effervescent, plumping lipgloss with ultimate shine” that comes in both full coverage and sheer coverage shades. My guess is that shades in the 200s are full coverage, while shades in the 300 range are sheer.

The formula is slick, not too thin or too thick, and feels comfortable on. There’s a cooling sensation that’s more minty-fresh than bee-stung (and I’m fairly reactive–not in a good way–to lip plumping); I always feel like I’ve just brushed my teeth after I’ve applied either shade. There is a sweet, fruity scent (maybe grape?) that I know some won’t like, but I can’t detect scent once applied, just in the tube and on the wand. The applicator is a flexible doe-foot wand that’s slightly indented in the middle and hugs the curve of the lip well. It has a very high-shine finish that gives lips a very plump, full look from the get-go.

After an hour or so of wear, there is the tiniest grit of the sparkle if I really press my lips together, but I don’t really notice the texture of the shimmer until three or four hours into the wear. It’s completely non-tacky when applied, but after three or so hours of wear, it does have some tackiness. Both shades were nicely hydrating each time I wore them.

All in all, a nice formula–not the best but good–and I’m curious to see how the creams work out when the line launches fully on August 9th. The only thing I didn’t like was that the sparkle had a noticeable texture while worn at times.

Heart Shaped (308) is described as a “shimmering baby pink.” It’s a light-medium, pink-coral with pale golden shimmer. It has warm undertones and semi-sheer color coverage. This shade wore three hours on me, which is slightly below average. Revlon Pango Peach is warmer, less pink. Revlon Papaya is more opaque, less shimmery. Guerlain Frizzy Mango is similar. See comparison swatches.

Studded Kiss (310) is described as a “shimmering berry lavender.” It’s a fuchsia-shimmered berry-red with cool undertones. It applied fairly evenly, though it does settle into lips (but it’s not very noticeable from a normal viewing distance, only if you have your nose to the mirror), and has semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage, as it was somewhat buildable. This shade wore well for four hours. Urban Decay Big Bang is purpler. Urban Decay Adrenaline is brighter. NARS Penny Arcade is less shimmery. MAC Colour Saturation is similar but less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

  1. I don’t like these shades but the packaging is wonderful!

  2. Wow very pretty colors… you look great :)

  3. Avatar of Davina DJ

    Thanks for the review! Will definitely pick up a couple of these!

  4. I don’t think of you as wearing punks and fuschias, but Studded Kiss is beautiful on you. And it’s just a beautiful shade!

    I am very excited for the whole collection to come out; one of the reds looks like a possible dupe for my long-discontinued Estée Lauder Very Red.

  5. well, I’m more interested in the lipsticks, but those do look pretty nice =)

  6. ledonatella

    I bought Heart Shaped and Lust for Life, pretty colors but I wish I knew how minty feeling they were- it’s overwhelming to me. Nice formula but my lips can’t handle the plumping part.

  7. Both are really gorgeous colors! I’m excited to try them!

  8. Both look lovely on you, but my favorite is Heart Shaped :-)

  9. Oh dear, I was a bit skeptical about this collection when I saw the promo pictures, but if the whole collection is on par with these two, I may just have to get some of it.

  10. Even though not one for expensive glosses, I have to say these do look like a quality product. The ‘eveness’ of colour and sparkle throughout the application is particularly impressive.

  11. I am already obsessed with this line. I got The Starlet palette during the Sephora pre-sale and I cannot WAIT for the rest of the collection to launch on august 9. The shadows are to die for… just pigmented and rich and beautiful. I’m DYING for the nail polish!

  12. I think I LOVE Studded Kiss!

  13. Amy

    Ah I am so excited to see these first Marc Jacobs swatches! I can’t wait to see the entire collection, especially that purple lipstick.

  14. Lisa J

    So glad you are reviewing these before the collection is released. Being a huge MJ fan, I’ve been so excited for this collection since I heard about it! I missed out on the pre sale at Sephora, so I’m dying to get my hands on some of the items. I’m glad we get to see just how lovely some of the products are before their release and it gives me high hopes for the rest of the collection. Thanks, Christine! <333

  15. Pretty. I like the packaging. Studded Kiss kind of looks like a gloss I used to have, except it was super purple-fuchsia-berry colored.XD Just a weird shade but Studded Kiss looks better.

  16. I love Studded Kiss!

  17. Amalia

    The swatch of Studded Kiss (310) reminds me of YSL La Laque in Fuchsia #19

  18. I agree that you can pull off both shades very nicely, but I personally prefer Heart Shaped. It has just the right amount of pink and is not too peachy (like the others on the dupe list).

    $28? I don’t know. It needs to be stellar or a really cool/unusual color for me.

  20. Laura

    I LOVE your reviews!
    I wanted to add that the tube leaks :-\ For some reason, when you put the wand back in to close it, gloss oozes out of the top and into the cap and all over the threads. Every time I open to apply I have to wipe everything down, and even then the inside of my makeup bag is sticky. What an upsetting waste of product!

    • Oh no! You should try to return, because that doesn’t defective. I haven’t experienced that myself, but I don’t keep mine in my purse or with me, so that might be why.

    I ordered studded kiss during the VIB sales event and I can’t wait! I tried it on in store and it turned out to be less shimmery and more of a glistening plummy color- perfect for the holidays! i don’t have very pigmented lips, so this was very opaque on me which I love!
