Marc Jacobs Beauty Merlot Blow (380) Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon ($26.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. This took almost 15 minutes to dry down fully on my lips. The texture was creamy and emollient going on, and it did dry down partially in a short period of time. The color appeared patchy and seemed to clump together on the lips as it dried down and looked crumbly overall. It lasted for eight hours on me from what I could tell, as it always looked a bit uneven and patchy, so any signs of wear were harder to detect initially!

Rewrite the (lipstick) rules: Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon is everything you love about a liquid lipstick in the form of a creamy crayon. It melts into lips with a lightweight liquid sensation, providing powerful one-swipe color with bold impact. A dose of innovative "ghost pearl" gives the matte look a dimensional sheen, which becomes more visible at certain angles to give lips a modern, never-before-seen finish. With the perfect amount of playtime, you get the best of both worlds: instant color that lasts for up to 16 luxurious hours of long-wear. The bold, high-pigment shades feel creamy and comfortable and won’t dry or settle into lines. The crayon offers total control for effortless application. It's easier than ever to shape and fill your lips. Have it both ways: You never need to choose between a traditional lipstick or a liquid again with this new lip innovation.
