The holiday season is getting closer and closer, and in the beauty world that means a ton of new limited edition releases. The one that caught my eye this year (so far) are Marc Jacobs five piece lippies that come in a gorgeous black leather pouch.
I mean look at this packaging… such a beautiful starry little box isn’t it!
Thank God I bought it as soon as I saw it on Sephora’s website, because it sold out within a couple of days! Don’t worry though, you can still purchase it from the Marc Jacobs website (if it’s still in stock).
The set is made from 5 beautiful deluxe-sized Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crèmes in a gorgeous black leather clutch (that you can, and I will, totally wear out!). These lippies are the prefect size to toss in a small bag. I honestly prefer this smaller size to the normal one. I never for once finished an entire lipstick! Like ever!!! I always toss it way before it’s done, either because it gets damaged, or because it’s just way too old to use.
PS: a lipstick should not be used more than a year for hygienic reasons! Check out this chart for makeup expiration dates.
If you want to upgrade your lipstick stack without dropping serious cash, then I totally recommend this set!
The lippies come in 5 gorgeous super pigmented and long wearing shades. I wore them all day, ate and drank and there was still a decent amount of product of my lips!
They’re creamy, almost oder-less (yey!) and beautifully packaged.
The first shade is Infamous 228, which is a beautiful mauve nude with grey undertones.
The second is So Sofia 236, which is a bright orange pinkish shade.
The third is Dashing 206, an absolute gorgeous shade of sultry red. My favorite between all of them.
The forth is Boy Gorgeous 222, which is a dark mauvy shade.
The fifth and last shade in the Blow 210, a very deep brownish burgundy color.
I only had a problem with the Blow 210, where I didn’t find it as pigmented as the others, but still a very good product overall.
This set could be such a pretty gift for your bff or for yourself! You deserve it!
In just one week the winners of the EPIC Urban Decay & Sephora giveaway will be announced. Go check it out!
