Hi There! Now that Christmas is starting to slowly lurk behind us I am going to recommend some Christmas gift ideas in the next several weeks. Today, I am going to recommend another great item for Christmas gift. It is the limited edition Up All Night Five-Piece Petites Le Marc Lip Crème Collection ($49) from Marc Jacobs and can be found at Sephora. Let’s break down this small but powerful gift set.
Description: This is a Marc Jacobs Holiday collection and is all about last night, containing Marc Jacobs’ revolutionary 10-hour wear lipstick that covers your lips in buttery, creamy vibrant pigment in one sensual swipe. Experience unprecedented color payoff from their concentrated color-boost pigments that are triple-milled and steeped in hydrating ingredients, to give your lips ultimate long-lasting color and moisture for a plumped appearance that lasts. These five, rich Le Marc Lip Crème shades are tucked away into a Marc Jacobs metallic, hot pink vegan patent leather pouch. Zipped with a black swinging tassel, this pouch is so elegant, it could double as an evening bag. The collection contains bestselling nudes, reds, and a plum. The lipsticks are formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
Verdict: These lipsticks are very moisturizing and long wearing. I already have the full size of Slow Burn which I have officially deemed as my perfect nude. I like Oh Miley because of classic reds. Miss Scarlet is a deep vampy red, really nice for a bold lip. Scandal is a bit darker than I wanted but still a nice purple color. The case is cute, and the inner liner can be pulled out so you can use the clutch for something else. Really happy with this purchase. It is perfect for my make up bag and the colors are spot on for the fall/winter season. I am not a big fan of matte lipsticks. These lipsticks are quite buttery. long lasting, and hydrating – the best alternative there is to matte. I also have last year’s Marc Jacobs lipstick set in the black patent leather bag. I will continue to buy his mini lipstick sets as long as he continues to make them. My final verdict, this is a great gift for Christmas or just to indulge yourself.
