I’ve been asked some questions regarding the new Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick (0.074 oz: $28) and nothing excites me more than knowing that there’s a new lip product to investigate, especially the ones that are from MJ Beauty.
The Enamored Lip Gloss is basically a lip gloss in a stick that’s meant to condition and hydrate the lips while delivering a glossy finish. At first glance, the product’s packaging feels really easy on the hands especially with its teardrop-shaped applicator that makes it precise to apply on the lips. The colored caps of each tube seems to accurately match the shade of the lip gloss as well. On the outside, this product looks like a lipstick, that is, until you start applying it on the lips. It feels really emulsifying and it melts on the lips easily like butter. I wouldn’t call it creamy, but it’s more like a lip oil, or pretty much like a very pigmented lip gloss. It does glide effortlessly on the lips and it’s very lightweight as if you didn’t apply anything on. I didn’t notice any sticky feel all throughout my usage of the product, and it’s really comfortable to wear. I love that it has this nice subtle peppermint scent which is really on point this summer and I wish all lipsticks and lip glosses smell like that. Also, this Enamored Lip Gloss is super hydrating from the moment you apply this to your lips and even after it fades away, leaving the lips feeling supple and smooth.
Here are five of the eight shades.
Mocha Choco-lata! – nude pinky beige, perfect nude for light or light/medium skintones.
Uh-Huh Honey – brown sugar shimmer, a very wearable brown sugar tone that’s packed with glitter.
One Mauve Time – rose mauve, a deeply saturated perfect mauve shade for those with slightly pigmented lips.
Black Cherry Baby – bronze cherry, appears dark red-brown at first glance but it’s actually quite sheer and can be easily worn by anyone with light/medium to deep skin tones. Reminds me a bit of Clinique’s super popular “Black Honey“.
Candy Bling – red raspberry, a perfect pop of color this summer.
Lasting power for me with this Enamored Lip Gloss is pretty short, about 3 hours to 3.5 hours maximum. It fades away easily after eating or drinking and it’s not staining, so that’s kind of my beef with this. I’m also not keen on taking this outside with the Summer heat, fearing that it might melt easily due to its oily or buttery consistency. Speaking of its consistency, this lip gloss on a stick actually reminds me a lot of the YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick (reviewed HERE) and the rest of the YSL Rouge Volupté Shine lineup (HERE). Also, it’s quite similar to the Dior Addict Lacquer Stick (swatched HERE). So, there are a lot of products that may seem comparable to this Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss, however, it has a fairly wearable lineup of shades and its scent is something to consider for.
Overall, this is a great hydrating lip product that looks like a lipstick but feels and applies like a lip gloss with a nice shiny effect on the lips. It won’t stay long on the lips, so you’ll need to reapply quite often but it’s comfortable, non-sticky, super lightweight and it comes in cute wearable colors.
The Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick is currently available at Sephora, JCPenney, Neiman Marcus, and Net-A-Porter
