Genie Kiss (384)

Marc Jacobs Beauty Genie Kiss (384) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip LacquerMarc Jacobs Beauty Genie Kiss (384) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a soft, rosy mauve with warmer undertones and flecks of gold and pink sparkle. It had a sheerer base, so it didn’t add much color, just added some warmth and washed out my natural lip color a bit. There was a “sheer” level of sparkle, too, so it had a bit of shine and shimmer with minimal color. The texture was lightweight, spreadable, and cushy on my lips, which made it comfortable to wear for the three hours it lasted well for. The formula felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.16 oz. - $181.25 Per Ounce

It is supposed to have "maximum color and brilliance" and "shine like 30 coats of lacquer." The formula has a mint scent but not much flavor from what I could detect. While the brand's general description is "maximum color," they seem to modify that with individual shade descriptions as several shades are specifically described as "opaque" and a few are noted as "sheer" with the remainder having no specific coverage descriptor (as of April/May 2020).

This seems to suggest that the rest are neither sheer nor opaque but somewhere in-between--I would lean toward "semi-opaque" to be closer to "maximum color," though I really think that's quite confusing to the customer. It would make more sense to simply describe it as a range of sheer to opaque shades or that they're medium coverage (as a whole).

The coverage ranged from semi-sheer to opaque with a fair amount of shades between medium and semi-opaque payoff in a single layer, and they do have a very high-shine finish that makes my lips look more voluminous.

The consistency was smooth, like a creamy gel as it was a bit thicker (without being heavy or tacky), and very easy to spread across my lips. It was comfortable to wear and moisturizing over time. Some shades smoothed out my lip lines, though it wasn't consistent throughout the range as a few settled into them (usually paler, milkier shades).

To the Moon (386)

Marc Jacobs Beauty To the Moon (386) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip LacquerMarc Jacobs Beauty To the Moon (386) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light pink base with a fine gold, pink, and blue pearl and micro-sparkle. It had medium color coverage with a smooth, even application of product that smoothed out most of my lip lines. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and more gel-like–plush, cushiony–and comfortable to wear. The “downside” is that the formula, as a whole, it supposed to have “maximum color,” when a good portion of shades are sheerer, like this one. It wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing while worn.

To The Moon is my idea of a perfect summer gloss that I can wear instead of lipstick and still look very “done” and polished. Think I’m going to order this! Maybe even this week, LOL.
On the other hand, Genie Kisses is anything but magical. Just a basic shade one can get through ColourPop for a lot less dough.

Awww…looking at both of these, I don’t think I’ll get either. Too sheer and I have similar colors. But they look very pretty on you!
