Sugar and Spice

Marc Jacobs Beauty Sugar and Spice Le Marc Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with soft, warm undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation was incredibly rich and covered my lips with smooth, even color payoff in a single, fluid stroke. It felt creamy going onto my lips but wasn’t overly emollient or slippery, so it adhered well and stayed in place without feathering. This shade wore well for six and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing, which is great wear in the grand scheme of things but still quite short of the brand’s 10-hour wear claim, unfortunately!

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.

Vinyl Dream

Marc Jacobs Beauty Vinyl Dream Le Marc Lip Crème ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, while the consistency was smooth, lightly creamy, and comfortable to apply. The color applied beautifully with even coverage and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. It stayed on well for six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was lightly moisturizing.

I immediately liked Sugar & Spice, checked the dupes, and realized not only do I have Retro, but I’m actually wearing it today, lol.

I want both of them, but am willing to wait until I can get some sort of friends and family discount (I think MJB did one last spring). I like the formula more than you do 😉 But it’s still not worth the full cost.

Thank you so much for swatching and reviewing these!

Saw these two shades, and it was love at first sight! And little wonder with the sheer number of dupes I have for BOTH. I may be in that very scary place where I just have too much stuff…? 😱

Sugar & Spice looks interesting, but it brought to mind Nars Audrey, (maybe a bit more muted than Audrey, though?), which I already have. Side-by-side they look related at least as warm, plummy shades – anyone able to chime in on if these are close enough to be dupe territory?

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
