Marc Jacobs Beauty Marc Jacobs Beauty Neo-Noir (126) Lovemarc Lip Gel ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “cherry red.” It’s a vibrant, medium-dark blue-based red with a luminous, slightly glossy, finish. It’s cherry red all day long. Tom Ford Beauty Vampire Kiss (LE, $49.00) is less glossy, has some shimmer. MAC Glam (DC, $15.00) is pinker, more matte. Edward Bess Eternal Passion (P, $32.00) is not quite as bright. MAC Eden Rouge (LE, $16.00) is more matte. MAC Ronnie Red (LE, $15.00) is more matte. MAC MAC Red (P, $15.00)is matte. Buxom Scoundrel (P, $21.00) is slightly bluer-bbased but very similar. See comparison swatches.

This is a great formula for someone who likes their lipsticks more hydrating, somewhat glossy, but still long-wearing, comfortable, and vibrant. The consistency is lightweight, slightly slick, and gel-like but still intensely pigmented with full color coverage in a single pass. It has a lightly sweetened vanilla scent but no discernible taste. What I really like about this formula, especially this shade, is how lush and plump lips look–smoother and fuller–due to that high-shine finish. Neo-Noir wore well for six and a half hours and left a residual pinkish-red stain behind, and during and after wear, it was somewhat hydrating.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!
