Hey guys! Happy Monday! I got lost in Sephora last weekend and I found this tiny box of petite Marc Jacobs lipsticks and a lip liner set which I was so curious to try since the colors seem very pretty and very wearable. I’ve never tried the New Nudes Gel Lipsticks before, and so does the (P) Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil. This box, called The (Nude)ist Show seems very promising and contains 2 mini New Nudes Gel Lipsticks in Role Play and Screen Test and 1 (P) Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil in Prim(Rose).
As someone who’s a fan of Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme, I knew I’ve got to have these, though I had my few concerns during my swatches at the store because the lipsticks in these trio/set, seem creamier and shinier and I was a bit worried because they may not be as long lasting as the Le Marc Lip Cremes. But I brought the set home anyway and have been wearing them ever since.
The New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipsticks are definitely creamier, smoother and just overall easy to use lipsticks with very hydrating formulations. Though I didn’t notice that they’re “gellified,” I find that the lipsticks doesn’t feather and doesn’t adhere to the lips’ fine lines. They’re also not that shiny and can be slightly velvety. Most of all, they’re quite long lasting, but not as long lasting as the Le Marc Lip Cremes.
The (P) Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil (dunno why there’s a “P,” ask MJ 🙂 ) is such a great velvety and creamy lip liner that’s also gel-based. It’s so easy to use and it glides very easily on the lips. Definitely one of the best lip liners I’ve tried out there.
In these swatches, I’ve used the (P) Outliner Lip Pencil in Prim(Rose) for both New Nudes Gel Lipsticks from the set. Notice that the lip liner in the first shade (Screen Test) has a darker shade than the lipstick itself.
New Nudes Gel Lipsticks:
Screen Test: Creamy Nude
Role Play: Dusty Rose
(P) Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil:
Prim(Rose): Rosy Nude
Overall, I think this set is really good, specially for travelling, and even more so if you like nude lipsticks. I find that the Prim(Rose) Hunger Games whatever, lip pencil shade seems to complement the Role Play Lipstick shade better than the Screen Test shade, but that really doesn’t bother me that much as you can always find an alternative lip liner shade for Screen Test.
What do you think about these lippies? You likey? 🙂 Me likey very. LOL. This trio set is still available HERE.
