I am slowly but surely getting in on the glossy lip trend! I think mostly because now that I am older I have the money to afford nicer lip gloss that isn’t sticky, tacky or full of chunky glitter that makes me look like I am 5! That’s not to say I don’t like glitter in my gloss I just like subtle glitter now.
So for my work Christmas party I won a Sephora gift card and I got another one as part of the Secret Santa gift exchange that we did as a group. So this meant I was getting something new and something I wouldn’t normally splurge on!
So off I went to the closes Sephora on my day off to go and see what on my wish list I would buy…(there is a lot on my wish list-adulting/bills suck). After wandering the store for probably about 20 minutes looking through all of the options I had thought of I decided I was going to get a new lip product…surprised…..if you have read some of my other posts your probably not surprise that this would be what I would be drawn too!
So I got….DRUM ROLL PLEASE….
Please let us take a moment for the beauty that is Marc Jacobs gloss…
Isn’t it just beautiful! This is the Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in the shade “Allow Me”, retail price $28. This is a rosy color with the ever so slight gold glittery flip to it! I probably swatched this 3 times before I finally decided this was the one for me! Just because there were so many choices and I wanted to make sure I picked one I would use a lot considering the price point.
The swatch is stunning and so very, very pigmented! I was actually a little surprise that this was as pigmented as it was considering that it was a gloss. But to be totally honest I had never actually swatched one of these glosses because I never thought I would own one. One of my favorite YouTuber’s loves the shade “Sugar Sugar” which is more if a nude color and I think if I ever get another shade of this gloss I will get that one.
This gloss however is incredible! It applies amazingly on it’s own and layers even better to many of the liquid lipsticks and matte lipsticks I already have in my collection! The formula is very smooth and comfortable to wear. It’s not sticky or tacky and last quite awhile even through drinking and eating. I am so impressed and totally understand the hefty price tag.
This is just the gloss on my lips. It’s almost a my lips but glossier color and I am in love! Look at that shine! I do have my selfie light on it to brighten the photo but this is just beautiful!
This is with the gloss applied over my favorite new lip color from my December Ipsy by OFRA. They both are pinky colors but I mean just look at how nicely it blends with the lip color! I am so excited to keep using this gloss.
The other reason I was so keen to getting a lip product that was higher end was because I know it will last a long time and not be something that I totally use every day like a foundation or concealer that tends to disappear pretty quickly (even though I have been using this every day haha).
Thanks for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
