Marc Jacobs Beauty LoveMarc Lip Gel in Severine | Review & Swatches
A color-saturated, long-wearing, gellified lipstick with a sleek shine finish.
PRODUCT RATING: ★★★★★★★★★☆ (9/10)
PRICE DETAILS: $30 $$$
PRESENTATION: Black and silver lacquered case with magnetic closure.
COLOR REVIEWED: Severine (Warm Beige Pink)
KEY FEATURES: Full of pure pigment, this long-wearing lipstick has an irresistibly touchable texture. Unlike traditional waxy lipsticks, Lovemarc’s cutting-edge, gellified formula delivers the utmost in creaminess, comfort, and color payoff. An infusion of monoi butter—a velvety cream made from the tropical tiare flower—provides intense hydration, while myrrh extract works to reduce the signs of aging, and an innovative 3-D plumping agent adds gentle volume. The vivid shades are all inspired by Marc’s favorite movies. (Sephora)
QUICK REVIEW: Pretty. Severine is a wearable light/medium beige nude with a touch of pink. The texture is creamy and moisturizing without feeling thick or heavy on the lips. It can be worn sheer (apply with a brush) or opaque (straight from the tube). The finish is semi-matte and looks very natural. Most nudes are often too pale, too ashy or don’t look natural – Severine has an ideal balance of beige, brown and pink (no ash). The texture, color and finish of this lip color makes lips truly look like: Your Lips But Better (YLBB).
MARC JACOBS BEAUTY LASH LIFTER GEL VOLUME MASCARA
The blackest, shiniest mascara that promises ultimate lift, length, volume, and curl.
PRICE DETAILS: $26 $$$
PRESENTATION: Black and silver tube
COLOR REVIEWED: Blaquer – Black
KEY FEATURES: Innovation for your eyes only. This next-generation mascara combines an innovative, triangular brush with exclusive E-Lash-Tic Lash™ technology to create the ultimate glossy lashes. The special formula contains micro-crystalline powders that coat and stretch your lashes for maximum length, volume, and curl, while providing a rich, smooth application that never clumps. Available in the blackest, shiniest black on the market, Lash Lifter Gel Volume Mascara will make your lashes flake-proof, run-proof, and life-proof. (Sephora)
QUICK REVIEW: I don’t have impressive lashes naturally, which is probably why I’m obsessed with mascara. While I try dozens upon dozens of lengthening, thickening, curling tubes – I rarely come across one that impresses me. I LOVE THIS MASCARA!! Its genius and exactly what I’ve been looking for. If you want clumpy, heavy looking lashes – not for you. This super black, shiny (really), non-clumping mascara (yes, really) maximizes lashes without over doing it. Natural and feathery – like good false lashes. Plus is doesn’t smudge or flake. Winner Marc Jacobs – can’t wait to give your other products a try.
MONSTER NOTE: This reminds me of a souped up version of the original Shu Uemura Basic Mascara (not discontinued).
