Marc Jacobs Have We Met? (108) Lovemarc Lip Gel ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “shimmering warm pink.” It’s a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and fine gold shimmer with a luminous sheen. Chanel Surprenante (129) (P, $34.00) is less glossy. Urban Decay Streak (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, warmer. Urban Decay Fiend (P, $22.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Naked (P, $22.00) is lighter, less shimmery. Chanel Liaison (P, $34.00) is lighter, less shimmery. MAC Sunny Seoul (LE, $15.00) is less warm-toned. MAC Flamingo (LE, $15.00) is lighter, less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

The Lovemarc Lip Gel formula is supposed to be “color-saturated, long-wearing, gellified lipstick with a sleek shine finish.” Have We Met? is mostly opaque, but there’s a little translucency as you can see my lip freckle peeking through. I would expect if you had naturally redder lips, you’d also see that come through and darkening and reddening this color. The consistency is very emollient, definitely gel-like, and the color applies easily without tugging or dragging. This shade wears four hours on me, which is average for lipstick in general (on me) but short of what long-wearing formulas usually is (more like six hours). It doesn’t come as a big surprise, given the high amount of slip this shade had. It was very comfortable to wear, and it was nicely hydrating from start to finish. Marc Jacobs’ lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no taste.

if u use this much lipstick your lips will be destroyed
n I wassssssss
I was speechless for a minute
my 6 yr old son …. my god
can u imagine ?

I’m really intrigued by the ‘gel’ aspect of this lipstick line because I love gel cream moisturizers. I also like the shade. However, UD Fiend looks like a perfect shade for me & quite a bit more affordable!

This is probably not the appropriate post to ask this. I did try that day after in that post where you asked readers what kind of make up they use, (high end, mid, low) but my comment didn’t get posted. I know sometimes you make posts to answer questions readers have. Can you tell me what are considered high-end brands and mid-range ones? I know low-end brands are drugstore ones, but I always notice some confusion about the other two. Can you give examples?

Mid-range is usually when most products are under $20 – like MAC is generally considered more mid-range. Even brands like Urban Decay, Smashbox, Stila, etc. can be considered mid-range, and then high-end tends to be the more designer brands like Chanel, Dior, YSL, etc. For most, though, high-end is mostly anything that isn’t at the drugstore.

Yeah, I think if you are a stickler about it… you have drugstore brands, indie brands, niche brands (those would be LIKE indie brands but $$$!), mid-range, high-end, and then luxury (e.g. Tom Ford).
