Formula Summary: Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip CremeMarc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Creme ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) claims 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 isn’t hydrating, and it can be drying, depending on the shade. The lipstick has a sweet, floral scent, but it is very subtle, even when smelled directly from the tube.

Both of them look good, but I like Je T’Aime better – it seems like an easy red to wear -not too bright or too dark, not too warm or too cool

This post reminded me that I have So Sofia somewhere . I gotta find that today. It really is a gorgeous summer color. I Really like J’ taime too. But I have Frenemie and Sucre. So,Ill probably pass.

I bought Je T’aime recently — it is a little drying, but it’s a lovely color — pulls cooler on me than you, so closer to “raspberry.” It’s great for summer, and actually pretty unique in my lipstick stash.

Oh! Grenade Rouge G is a dupe for Je t’aime! πŸ˜€ As close as it can be.. The magic with Rouge G’s is that they cater to whatever your tone is, so however this is, that should be pretty similar, perhaps a bit cooler.. I compared your lips here in the dupe swatches and it’s great! So if someone wants a longer lasting moisturizing version.. Grenade! πŸ˜€

On you, these appear to have shimmer & a sheen, even when enlarged and in the swatches. Going by photos of your lips, they appear similar on you! πŸ™‚ Lovely lips!

Absolutely LOVE Je t’aime!!! Then again, why wouldn’t I? Considering that one of my favorite lippys ever is MAC La Vie En Rouge! Perhaps I can get something close by putting just a smidge of Make Me Gorgeous over La Vie En Rouge, what do you think?

I like how they look, both of them. But if I had to chose it would be Je t’aime. Not sure I’ll buy it as they are really quite expensive here, more so than they are in The US. I am very tempted, though, I must say.
