Marc Jacobs Desire Hi Shine Nail Lacquer and Neo Noir Lip Gel Product Review: Kisses For Marc

I thought my red lipstick days were OVER! Do you hear me? O-V-E-R! HaHaHa Red is hard to carry off. I haven't bought a red anything in years. I've been sticking with wine, berry and plum colors. So I couldn't believe I was choosing red shades from the Marc Jacobs Beauty Collection on Sephora's website.

I kept saying to myself (anybody else fight with themselves while shopping online?). Are you CRAZY? Are you CRAZY KIM? Not only are you picking red shades, but you're not even in the store to sample them. You are ONLINE girl! Are you CRAZY? HaHaHa

Well let me tell you guys! Marc Jacobs is the man! THE MAN! I'm throwing kisses to him throughout this post! I couldn't be more pleased with his red lipstick and nail lacquer. And I should, because it was expensive! I wonder if Tom Ford can top Marc? No pun intended :P Blamin' it on the RED! HaHaHa

But I digress honey, this red is not for the faint of heart, the shy, the timid...none of that! This red says you are SEXY-AND-YOU-KNOW-IT, you're a SIREN...you are SMOKIN' HOT, you are the TOP B'WITCH IN CHARGE, LOOK-AT-ME, DON'T-MESS-WITH-ME, and I'M-ALL-THAT. This red is SEXY! This red is FIERCE! And honestly when you put it on, that's the way it makes you feel. Here's my review.


Sweet-Bittersweet-NotSweet
supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues) not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)

Marc Jacobs Neo-Noir #126 Lip Gel ($30 USD)
SUPERsweet
Velvety. Smooth. Silk for your lips. It's like BUTTER! I've had some rough-ass lipstick in my life. So you know the good stuff when it hits your lips. Yes, you do. This lipstick feels great. The packaging is awesome. It doesn't feel cheap. What's really cool about this lipstick is that the case is magnetized. YES! Did you know that? Don't worry about air seeping in, because this baby will snap back. Awesome feature. This lipstick twists up and the actual lipstick is rounded. When you apply it hugs your lips. It's a beautiful deep red. It's like a cherry red. There's nothing weak about it. It stayed put on my lips and didn't stray. Fear NOT this brilliant red!

 

Marc Jacobs Desire #136 Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer ($18 USD)
SUPERsweet
This nail lacquer IS like the coating on a candy apple! What you see below is one coat! That's it! If you want more, you can...but it's not necessary. This stuff dries faster than a (fill in the blank). The fastest I've ever seen. It lays evenly. I have no complaints. You'll get a good 5 - 7 days wear out of this. Depending on how much you use your hands or feet :). The packaging is as SEXY as the color! HaHaHa
 

 

My Final Thoughts: Marc Jacobs is a frickin' genius when it comes to beauty products! I am so getting more of his nail lacquer and lipstick. I was very impressed. My blog buddy Rowena of Rolala Loves Blog also wrote a glowing review (so check it out). This stuff really changes your mood! Just look at me. I went from sweet to vixen! What's in this stuff? LOL Kim Tip: I wear my emotions on my sleeve and face. LOL My facial expression shows everything you guys! These are just some of them. I do a mean Elvis lip-raise too. I'll save that for another time! HaHaHa You guys have a HAPPY WEEKEND!

  5. Haha, oh man, I have that arguement with myself EVERY TIME I'm picking out shoes online...I'm like, "Seriously Linda? Another spike/stud encrusted pair of shoes? REALLY??"
    And then I buy them anyway :)
    I'm glad you went ahead with the red shade! It looks stunning on you!

  6. You look so beautiful, that lipstick is made for you! Except I am sobbing into my coffee here that we can't buy this in Ireland. I may just have to purchase online because you are really selling the lipstick to me!

  7. You are flirting with the camera! :) The colours are gorgeous and make me very tempted to buy something from the range - so far I really loved the packaging, so very adorable. x

  8. Haha great post Kim. I must be naive because when you said (fill in the blank) I had no idea what the blank was. Doh! You're too cute for words (er I mean smokin hot) in the videos. I love your description of the lipstick and nail lacquer. I would absolutely love to try them. I've never seen Marc Jacobs here in Australia. I'll have a look for it online. You have a great Friday and weekend! :D sparkle2day.com

  20. Kim, you are way too cute and a hottie too! And you totally hit the jackpot with this nail lacquer and lipstick. That red looks like it was made for you. I guess we agree on the nail lacquer. Thanks for the link love btw! I bought one of the lipsticks online but the color was not right for me. I have to check them out in store and I def. want another nail lacquer or 2 ;p

  24. I've been really intrigued by Marc Jacobs cosmetics, but also really skeptical... so often designers forays into cosmetics turn out to be disastrous, especially considering the price point. It's wonderful to read such a positive review, especially of red lipstick - I'm always on the hunt for the next great red lipshade and I'm definitely putting this one on my list!

  41. Kim, you are absolutely crazy for thinking you can't pull off red, it looks fantastic on you!!! You already know how CRAZY I am for red lipstick, it's a staple for me, I Cannot leave the house without it. I'm getting super tired of the MAC ones because they rub off so quickly. You've totally sold me on this MJ!! I LOVE how deep the red color looks and it has a bit of a gloss to it which I love. Thanks for sharing, you'll see it on my blog soon!

    Oh, and can you do more posts with your facce in it? You are so goddamn adorable!

  43. Hi Kim, I think the red lipstick is basic on my dresser, I dont use red very often but it seems to me when I have a night out for example, the color of the glaze is too cute, thanks for sharing your experience.
