Marc Jacobs Beauty New Nudes Sheer Lip Gel ($38 CAD/$30 US) is a collection of seven expertly curated shades that will give you the perfect nude lip every time. These neutral shades are flattering across a range of skin tones and the formula, oh my goodness, the formula is exquisite.
The packaging is stunning. Nicely weighted tan coloured tubes with chrome accents and a magnetic closure. Very luxe.
I also love how the shades are depicted on the bottom label to make finding your shade in your stash easier.
The lipsticks are creamy but with a unique gel texture as opposed to a cream texture. It’s hard to describe but it is heavenly. I had expected the shades to be sheer but they are far from it. While they have a translucent quality to them, the pigmentation is excellent. Full, rich colour with an incredibly glossy finish. They have such a beauty quality to the finish.
The formula is enriched with moisturizing Monoi Butter to nourish your lips during wear. I get several hours wear out of these and they feel incredible on the lips. Incredible. They have a very, very light vanilla scent.
The two shades I’ve tested are:
- 114 Understudy – Terracotta Pink
- 150 Eat Cake – Rosy Nude
They are very close to each other with Understudy being a smidgen more coral and Eat Cake a touch more pink.
I am hooked on these. They are so fabulous. The formula is genius and 95% of the time I wear a nude/mlbb lip shade so I think I may need to get the other 5 shades. I could probably purge half of my other lipsticks after. Seriously they are that good! <3 Do you ever feel like that? You have a tonne of lipsticks you love, that are unique etc., yet you always reach for the same ones you love the absolute most. But I can’t part with all my other babies…
