Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick in "One Mauve Time"

I personally haven't splurged on many Marc Jacobs before; but, after hearing all the rave reviews on this lip gloss, I had to try it - it sounds perfect for me!

This hydrating lip gloss sounded right up my alley! I really love lip products; but, in my day to day life I just can't wear a bright bold shade - it doesn't work for my work environment and if there is a chance that I will have lipstick smudges when I'm out with kids, I won't wear it! So, on most days I usually just reach for a tinted lip balm to give my lips a hint of colour! This just seems like a step up from a tinted lip balm. 

Marc Jacobs is a luxury focuses on innovative products, formulas, and textures. The Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick is a combination of a high shine gloss and a nourishing tinted lip balm!

Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick in "One Mauve Time" ~ $34.00 CAN. A sheer lip gloss in a stick with an irresistible, melt-on, cushiony texture that delivers conditioning color with a high-shine finish.

This lip gloss stick features a tear-drop shaped applicator to match the contours of your lips making it easy to use on the go (even if you don't have a mirror handy!) This is supposed to be a really comfortable, non-sticky formula that glides on the lips making them feel nourished and soft!

One thing to note is the packaging - be aware that you should only twist up the amount of product that you want to apply; because, once you click it up - it doesn't go back down. They explain because the texture of the lip gloss stick is so soft and creamy, it needs to stay inside the packaging until it's applied. (that's why there isn't much showing for these pictures and even then I probably twisted up too much as the product was quite soft when swatching and applying).

As annoying as it may be not be able to twist this back down - I can appreciate that it is to protect the product and I knew that information before I used it. But, once you know not to twist up too much, it's easy to remember. And it's a slow click twist, so you aren't going to twist up the whole product immediately.

Now, on to the formula of this lip gloss stick - it is absolutely glorious! It is so soft and smooth - it feels like it's melting on the lips when you apply it and it just feels like you are wearing a soft lip oil/balm that adds just the right amount of colour and it just feels really luscious. It wears well on the lips and lasts for a couple of hours and wear off nicely.

I also love the shade "One Mauve Time" - it is a soft berry mauve that adds just the right amount of colour to my lips! A glossy your-lips-but-better shade on my lips! Also, it has the slightest minty scent; but, I hardly noticed it. 

I will try not to gush too much because I could come up with more extravagant descriptions than luscious and glorious - I try to keep my descriptions in check without sounding too over the top.But with this product it's a little hard to reign it it; I can pretty much say this is actually everything I want and need in a daily lip product! It just feels and looks a couple of steps up from a tinted lip balm and offers shine and colour while looking and feeling amazing while wearing it! I know this is a $30 lip product; but, I will wear this every day all day (I plan on picking up a second shade during this new VIB 20% sale right away!)

Here is a look at the "One Mauve Time" Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick with a full face of makeup! The best part of this is that you can pare this with a totally bare face of makeup to give you just a hint of colour, or this can stand up to being the lip look with a full face of more dramatic makeup - it's incredibly versatile! I could just go on and on about how much I love this formula!

While a $30 lip gloss balm may not be for everyone - if you tend to stick to a tinted balm and want to try something a little more luxurious, I would highly recommend trying this lip gloss stick out! And really, that 20% off sale starting soon would be a great way to try!

  6. This packaging is so pretty. I love that you can see the shade on the package, and so much of it. It really sucks it is a click up though. I hate that, I am always afraid of doing too much and then ruining it. I love how it looks on you, it a great shade

  7. The color is soooo pretty! To be honest, it's better paying $30 for a lip balm that you'll wear all day instead of a bold color you can only wear a couple times. I love this!
