I was recently selected for the Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème Vox Box by Influenster (the products were complimentary) and thought I’d share my thoughts!
Not being a huge fangirl of liquid lipsticks these days, I was unsure of how I’d like this one from Marc Jacobs Beauty. However, the brand has really put out some great things, namely the Marc Jacobs Glowstick, Velvet Noir Mascara and of course the High Liner. When the box arrived, I was slightly disappointed to see that they selected the shade Hot Cocoa. My blonde hair and transparent-white skin doesn’t typically lend itself well to any colors in the brown family.
But then I swatched it and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t just straight-up brown, but had a slight rosy hue to it.
The box also contained a coordinating lip liner! Mine was in the shade (nude)ist.
Here it is next to the lip creme:
And because I am a hard core beauty blogger (teehee) I decided to try it on and snap a pic for you guys.
DISCLAIMER: I have been sick all week and have closely resembled Aileen Wuornos.
NOT a precise application but you get the idea. Also, please note that I am reppin’ a North Face fleece.
Overall thoughts? I actually really like this stuff! The formula STAYS PUT and it wears really nicely. My issue with most liquid lipsticks is that they get all patchy and gross, but this one fades really well. I like the formulation and surprisingly, the color is growing on me! I think with a whole face a’makeup it wouldn’t look half bad. The lipliner is pretty typical, nothing overly wonderful. But a nice color and well pigmented, for sure.

Oh, and this is Aileen Wuornos for anyone who doesn’t know…and this is a good pic.
