Marc Jacobs Lip Gloss 

The other day, I got a fun surprise in the mail from Allure: the Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Gloss in Moonglow. This product is available at Sephora and similar retailers for $28.

This is a fantastic gloss! Moonglow is a very soft pink nude shade, which is pretty much universally flattering because it just adds a glossy boost to your natural color. I don’t know how the more dramatic shades perform, but this one really is the perfect neutral.

From a texture standpoint, I love how smooth this gloss it. It’s not sticky at all! I really hate sticky glosses, so I’m thrilled by this one. There’s also a teeny bit of tingle and plumping action, which is a nice bonus. Plus, the scent is very minty, which I love.

Overall, I adore this gloss. It’s definitely a bit pricier than I would normally go for when it comes to a basic, sheer lip gloss, but I’ve still been really enjoying this product!

Have you tried any Marc Jacobs makeup products? What did you think? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Marc Jacobs Gel Eyeliner 

I recently received a sample of the Marc Jacobs Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in black from Sephora.

This product in full-size costs $24 which is pretty high for a pencil eyeliner. These are twistable to get more of the product and are not actual pencils that require sharpening, so that’s a plus. It also is just as fine as it suggests when it comes to the width of the tip. Tightlining is pretty easy with this product because the tip is so narrow and it does glide very easily.

Now, I have to admit that when I first used the product, I thought it smudged too easily. However, I’ve since realized that it just takes longer to dry because it is a gel product. Once it does dry, it’s pretty budge-proof, but I still don’t like how long it takes to dry. It takes longer than most liquid liners. Also, while the tip is very fine, it is not a brush tip, so I still find that it’s not great for a cat-eye or winged look. Still, if you just want to tightline or put this in the water line, it does work pretty well as long as you’re patient and let it dry.

I can see this becoming a favorite for other people. It is a good product. I just don’t think I’ll be purchasing it when I’ve finished this sample because it doesn’t quite meet my particular eyeliner needs.
