I’ve never been a gloss-loving girl. Frankly, I hated glosses for a long time. I didn’t see the point in wearing them just to get my hair stuck to my lips. I also have the type of lips that are very finicky to certain products. My lips are super dry, and constantly peal all day, everyday. I exfoliate my lips every night, and before I apply any products.
It wasn’t until I saw Jaclyn Hill mention the Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer Lipglosses, WOW THAT’S A LONG NAME FOR A LIPGLOSS, that I decided to give gloss one more try. I’m glad I made this decision and picked up a Marc Jacobs lipgloss to test out.
These lipglosses are pretty expensive, at the price of 28$ a piece. Lets discuss some pros and cons.
- The packaging is very high quality and would look gorgeous displayed on a vanity.
- The gloss itself is super glossy and barely sticky. Personally, I have only felt a slight bit of stick when I press both of my lips completely together, and then open my mouth.
- Large range of colors with multiple finishes.
- Can be worn alone, on top of lipsticks, liquid lipsticks, or lip liners.
- Smells minty but doesn’t burn or tingle on the lips.
- You will end up wanting more…but with the price it can be kinda hard justifying the purchase of more than one.
I have a list of other colors I want from this line of lipglosses; but I want to see how often I use this gloss before I get more. I tend to wear lipsticks more than anything else. This particular shade that I have pictured is called Love Buzz. When I saw this in person I knew I had to have it. It is absolutely gorgeous in the tube and even prettier on the lips.
This is Love Buzz completely alone on my lips. I love how plump and full it makes my small upper lip look! 😀
I picked some of my favorite pinkish shades from my collection to swatch and top with Love Buzz. This will give you an idea of how Love Buzz looks on top of different products.
From left to right: Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in the shades Lovesick and Mother, and MAC lipsticks in the shades Amorous and Faux. For the record Amorous and Faux are my all time favorite lipsticks at the moment. Amorous looks much more cranberry/berry on the lips than it is showing swatched.
Here are the same shades topped with Love Buzz. In the same order from left to right we have: Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in the shades Lovesick and Mother, and MAC lipsticks in Amorous and Faux. The last shade on the very right is Love Buzz.
I really enjoy wearing Love Buzz on it’s own, or topping it over MAC Faux, which is my perfect lip combo at the moment.
If you are the type of girl that REALLY likes gloss or just want a really good one because no other glosses work for you, then I would suggest giving the Marc Jacobs glosses a try. I was genuinely impressed the first time I applied the one I own. I wear a glossy lip now more than I ever used to and I actually love it! 🙂
