Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer (000) Le Marc Lip CremeMarc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer (000) Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep black with neutral undertones and a cream finish. It was intensely pigmented–one of the most pigmented shades in the range that I’ve tried–with a creamy, easy-to-apply texture that glided over the lips and spread the color evenly across the lips. It wore well for six and a half hours, but it was a bit drying after four hours of wear. Anastasia Primary #2 (Vol. 1) (PiP, )(100% similar).

Formula Overview

The formula claims 10-hour wear with “vivid pigment” and a “rich, velvety” texture that is “ultra-hydrating.” In general, the Le Marc Lip Creme formula is creamy and glides on easily with good pigmentation (most of the time), but I have not found the formula to be hydrating–at times, even a bit drying–and while the wear is longer than average, it is more likely between four and eight hours, depending on the shade. It also has a sweet, floral scent.

Blacquer does look really good for a black lipstick! (Maybe it would get an ‘A’ if it was actually hydrating, as claimed?) Not sure how many black lipsticks I need, though… NYX Liquid Suede in Alien might be enough. Black is pretty dark/intense color for me — more of a special occasion color than an everyday color! Maybe for my kit, though…

These sure are pigmented! I do love Bad Behavior, but already have UD Disturbed, so I won’t be getting this one even though Disturbed seems darker.

What a great black. Perversion is even better. Remember the days when we had to endure cheap halloween lipsticks if we couldn’t get a hold of Manic Panic’s Raven? Or using a black eyeliner and clear gloss?

Blaquer is a pretty black. I’m really glad more brands make black lipsticks. Maybe it will make people stare less at the lips when going outside with black lips. It seems people here alt least think you’re either an overaged Goth, an old fan of Sex Pistols or just have bad taste. LOL! I think it’s really beautiful, even on myself 🙂

I’m so glad I went ahead and bought Blacquer!!! Whew. I know there are some slightly better blacks but I just Loooove MJ packaging! It’s much more luxe than MUFE or UD 🙂
