I have been trying out a few more bits from the Marc Jacobs line now that it is being stocked here in the UK and it is all rather exciting. You can check out my Velvet Noir Mascara Review here but for now it’s all about the Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick. Here’s a look.
So this is a collection of nourishing neutral lipsticks that aims to break the mold of traditional nude lipstick.
Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick Features
- Innovative gel formula glides effortlessly over lips

106 Moody Margot:
So first off, I am obsessed with the packaging. There’s something about this colour casing that really gets me. I love it when nude packaging encases a nude product like the Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powder. There’s something so perfect about it.
The formulation is pretty dreamy. It melts onto the lips and feels super creamy and nourishing yet light. It leaves a comfortable finish that’s perfect for the current wintry weather and dry lips combo. When I did the swatches on my arm, I was convinced that Moody Margaret was the one for me, and I do love it, but I actually think I prefer the darker Anais. Who knew?!
If you are looking for a lip colour to nail that luxe 70s vibe makeup look, then this is it.
