Marc Jacobs Beauty sure knows how to entice us with unique, and oh so chic, packaging. Marc was inspired to design the chrome packaging of the Marc Jacobs Kiss Pop Lip Colour Sticks ($28 US/$35 CAD) that looks like an oversized lip crayon by childhood memories of crayons, and the work of famous pop artist Tom Wesselmann. The colour inside is demonstrated by the colour of the tip of the bullet. I think these look so unusual and classy!
Given the name of the product, the style of the packaging, and the shape of the lipstick inside, I was expecting these to be a glossy balm type product. Imagine my surprise to discover they were in fact highly pigmented lipsticks. The formula is wonderful. They feel really hydrating on the lips thanks to the inclusion of honey, a natural humectant. Nutrient-rich leaves of the Candelilla plant are combined with Silica to lock-in bold color, leaving a smooth, transfer-resistant lip shade. These lipsticks offer opaque coverage and rich colour payoff. They wear exceptionally well and the pointed tip makes precise application easy. They are a dryer textured lipstick, as opposed to creamy or slick, but they don’t feel dry. It’s the kind of finish that ensures really long wear time.
Pop is a bright berry red.
Heartbreaker is a pink coral.
What do you think of the packaging on these? I love it! There are a total of 9 shades available and I thinking building a collection of these fabulously unique Kiss Pops may be in order.
