The Quick Review: Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon

I haven't heard much about the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon so I figured I'd do a quick review for ya'll! 


What they are: a lip crayon with the looks and lasting power of a liquid lipstick. They claim to last 16 hours and have a "ghost pearl" finish (read: multidimensional, not completely matte but not completely shiny either). 







My thoughts:

Formula: it is very, very smooth and melts on your lips - it's almost a little too creamy, which tends to make application a tad messy and break off the product. It is however, extremely pigmented and comfortable on the lips. It lasts well but is not 100% transfer proof. I don't love how hard it is to take off, though! My lips are still stained in the morning after I've removed this with micellar water and face wash the night before.

Application: see above. I thought it would be a lot easier to apply than an actual liquid lipstick, but it turns out you still have to be careful and have a steady hand. Surprise surprise!

Packaging: I love that there is no need for a sharpener (it would honestly be quite the mess), but I'm not a fan of the snap-shut cap, that tends to, well, not snap.

Shade selection: I think that's what I like the least about this product. The shades are all very dark and while I love how pigmented they are, I think they went heavy on the pink and mauve shades while there is virtually no nude. The lightest shade, "Send nudes" is not a nude at all and is in fact a fairly dark pink - don't let my bright photos fool you.

Overall: while I love the idea of a highly pigmented, satin finish, long lasting lip crayon, I think the Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon fell short for me. The shades are not my favorites, the finish is almost metallic looking, and the packaging doesn't feel sturdy at all. For $34, I'd rather skip this one and stick with the amazing Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils.
