Cream and Sugar

Marc Jacobs Beauty Cream and Sugar Le Marc Lip CrèmeMarc Jacobs Beauty Cream and Sugar Le Marc Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium beige with warm, rosy undertones and a satin finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that wasn’t too emollient, so it did not slide around when worn. For the type of color, it applied quite well, but there was some color that settled into my lip lines over time. The formula is marketed as having 10-hour wear, which has always been the area it has struggled in for me, and it wasn’t any different with this shade, which only lasted for five hours (though it was lightly hydrating).

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.12 oz. - $250.00 Per Ounce

The formula claims to have "10-hour" wear with “vivid pigment” and a “rich, velvety” texture that is “ultra-hydrating.” As you might expect, they don’t last ten hours; they last four to six hours with some leaving a stain. The texture is lightweight, creamy, and glides on without dragging or tugging on the lip, but it doesn’t have a lot of slip so it stays in place. The formula can be lightly hydrating to drying, depending on the shade. The lipstick has a sweet, floral scent, but it is very subtle, even when smelled directly from the tube.

Shakedown

Marc Jacobs Beauty Shakedown Le Marc Lip CrèmeMarc Jacobs Beauty Shakedown Le Marc Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones and a glossy shene. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which did not build up to full coverage with m ore product. The lipstick was lightweight with moderate, which made it easy to apply as it did not tug on my lips, but it seemed more prone to getting into my lip lines over time due to the noticeable slip on my lips. It wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing over time (but again, a far cry from the 10-hour wear the brand claimed!).

Strawberry Girl

Marc Jacobs Beauty Strawberry Girl Le Marc Lip CrèmeMarc Jacobs Beauty Strawberry Girl Le Marc Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy sheen. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the lipstick felt creamy and smooth going onto my lips with a bit of slip, but it seemed to adhere well and did not slide around while worn. There was a smidgen of color in my deeper lip lines, but I didn’t notice it from a normal viewing distance. This shade lasted for six hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Despite their redick claim of 10 hours of wear, they look very lush and beautiful enough to buy! I love Shakedown, but knew at first glance that it looked an awful lot like MAC Nicki’s Nude. So there goes that!
Strawberry Girl, however, reminds me of nothing else I own. Lovely shade for a softer springtime pinky-coral!

Strawberry Girl is gorgeous! I won’t pay $30 for a lipstick, but if I MJ or Sephora has a decent sale anytime soon, I might just pick this up. It’s a shame they made such lofty claims about the longevity, their grade really took a hit because of it. Anyway, thank you once again for all of your hard work, Christine!

I love Strawberry Girl and don’t have any close dupes. Such a pretty color for spring/summer. I am tempted to buy because I am sure spring will get to Montana eventually!

Sad to see the lighter “nude” colors didn’t work out. But Wow! Strawberry girl needs to be a part of your lip rotation Christine! So beautiful!!! I will still be checking these out in store to find a good match for my skin, and lip tone?
