Truth or Bare

Marc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Bare Marc Liquid Lip CrèmeMarc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Bare Marc Liquid Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is medium pink with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had opaque color coverage that spread evenly across the lips.

The formula is supposed to be hydrating, long-wearing, and have full coverage. If you like the idea of liquid lipstick but prefer more of a satin finish and something more forgiving on the lips, then this formula is going to be more suitable for you. If you prefer a flat, matte finish that’s transfer-proof, then this formula will not meet your needs. It is, literally, a liquid version of lipstick–it feels like a lightweight lipstick with light to moderate slip that lasts four to six hours. This particular shade had a smooth, lightweight consistency that was comfortable to wear, easy to apply, and lightly hydrating over time. It lasted for six hours on me before fading noticeably.

Shush, Blush

Marc Jacobs Beauty Shush, Blush Le Marc Liquid Lip CrèmeMarc Jacobs Beauty Shush, Blush Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, plummy rose with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The texture was smooth, lightweight, not too thick or too thin, and was easy to work with. The color wore well for six hours, left a very, very faint stain behind, and was moisturizing while worn.

This formula seems to be my kind of formula and Shush, Blush did well. I hope I’ll be able to swatch it in store soon.
I also hope that MJ adds in more colors, especially darker colors.

These are so much more my speed than yesterday’s very pale nudes (pale on me, anyway!), I like them both! That said, my favorite of the 2 seems to have a “possible dupe” in Too Faced Pink Chocolate. And they DO seem to be super similar. The other shade reminds of *something* I have…MAC Cosmo? Idk? But it looks very familiar to me!

I wouldn’t say they are similar to Velvet Lip Glides in terms of texture; function, sure, they are both lightly glossy liquid lipsticks, but they don’t feel the same on.

Shush, Blush looks like it would be beautiful for next spring/summer. Saving it for future reference!
These names are a little extra, aren’t they? Ha 🙂

Hi Aracely,

As I said before, Marc Jacobs Beauty just said it would officially launch in December – they did not provide a specific date! I was explaining where I purchased mine and how 🙂 So sorry to upset you by sharing that!
