Marc Jacobs Seduce Me (128) LoveMarc Lip Gel
Marc Jacobs Seduce Me (128) LoveMarc Lip Gel

Marc Jacobs Seduce Me (128) LoveMarc Lip Gel ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark berry red with a creamy, luminous finish. Urban Decay Catfight is warmer, redder. Urban Decay Venom is more berry-hued, darker. Tom Ford Violet Fatale is more purple. MAC Rebel is more matte, slightly less red. Guerlain Girly is slightly pinker. MAC Scan-delicious is pinker. See comparison swatches.

The formula is touted as “highly pigmented” with a “sleek, hydrating shine.” It’s also supposed to “gently [plump] with unique 3-D optical volumizers.” It’s very nearly opaque applied to lips, and it’s mostly opaque in a single pass at that, and the finish is certainly high-shine–it has a glossy shine. I didn’t feel any tingle or sign of lip plumping, and I couldn’t visually detect if my lips were really any larger than they were before, but the glossy finish did give the illusion of fuller lips. The consistency is thin, feels water-based so it has some slip and wetness to it, and creamy enough that it glided across lips without pulling or tugging. It was lightweight, lasted five hours when I wore it, and was somewhat hydrating while worn. The lipstick was vanilla-scented but has no discernible taste. This is the only shade I’ve tried, but I hope to try at least a few more to verify performance within the range.

    It’s a lovely shade! And the packaging is beautiful.

  2. OOO haaai! Finally something from this line-up that speaks to me! The color is incredible, and I love the glossy finish!

  3. Really lovely! It almost looks like a gloss finish, not a lipstick!

  4. That’s a lovely color on your Christine! Thanks for the swatch.

  5. These Marc Jacobs’ products seem to perform all very well, but somehow they don’t appeal to me very much.

  6. How does this compare to MAC’s Rebel?

    Beautiful color! I wasn’t sure about it in the closeups, but it looks so great with your skintone. I think we have the same undertones (yellow?) so maybe it will work for me.

  8. This shade is so pretty. And the finish looks amazing!!

    What a great shade! Reminds me of MAC Rebel (as you found as well) and OCC Lip Tar in Strumpet. Since I own both of those I’ll probably be able to steer clear of this, but it really is a killer colour! xo

  10. That’s a beautiful shade, but I have to admit that I was distracted by that va-va-voom eye liner! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on that one! (And incidentally, you have full, perfect lips already, so there’s really no way for a plumping formula to improve on them.)

  11. Nice glossy finish! This is a really attractive shade too. Looks wonderful against your skin

  12. Hi Christine –

    Do you think the Marc Jacobs formulation is comparable to Buxom’s lipsticks? I’m addicted to my Buxom lipsticks since reading your reviews on them earlier this Summer. I wore Scoundrel today which is a lovely blue red lipstick.

  13. Yum! That shade’s really gorgeous! I like the blush too. :D

  14. VickyM

    Very pretty shade, but no Marc Jacobs here :( .

  15. Packaging is absolutely beautiful! The pigmentation looks good and looks relatively moisturizing. But it’s always a trade off between long lasting and moisturizing. So I wonder how long does it last on the lips. :)

    Love this look on you! You have caused me to lust over the Marc Jacobs beauty line so much haha

    oohhhh this looks gorgeous on you :) i think, however, i’m still more of a coral or rose pink girl. I may have passed the bright colour phase :/

    It is a really pretty shade.

  19. This colour looks gorgeous and so creamy! I love Marc Jacobs for Fragrances and I’ll have to try one of their lipsticks

  20. I would never look twice @ this in the tube. But the swatches look gorgeous!

  21. I love this sort of colour! So pretty! ^_^

    how similar is this to MACs Love Forever??
