Six months ago, my nude lipstick selection pretty much consisted of nothing.. maybe one or two different lipsticks. I didn’t use to be big on wearing much eyeshadow, so I would usually do something simple and complement that with a bold pink or red lip. Now that I have more of an interest in playing with different eye looks (aka an interest in hoarding #allthepalettes), my nude lip collection has grown immensely, as I generally like to follow the “choose one feature to accentuate” makeup guideline.
The most recent addition to my nude lip collection has been three of the Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Lip Gels. While sheer is in the name, they’re not as sheer as you’d think they would be. They all make for the perfect YLBB colors and are so comfortable to wear. The gel formula makes them easily glide on the lips, feels super hydrating and gives the perfect amount of shine. Contrary to a couple reviews I saw on the Sephora site, I didn’t experience any dryness with the Marc Jacobs New Nude Sheer Lip Gels after a couple hours of wear. I was able to wear one of these out the other night and it faded nicely over a few hours and a few drinks.
There are seven shades in total, all of which are so beautifully packaged in a nude colored lipstick tube with a magnetic closure. These lipsticks definitely look and feel luxurious, and I pretty much want to own every single one. Also, they have a light vanilla scent which just lures me in even more!
The first of the three I own is Have We Met?, which is a shimmering warm pink. The shimmer in this is SO fine, which I really like. I’m normally not much of a shimmer lover, but this one is totally doable because how fine the shimmer is.
Next up is Role Play, a dusty rose that looks amazing on fair skin. This is the most perfect YLBB color for me and I’ve been wearing it so often!
I saved my favorite for last- Eat Cake, a gorgeous rosy nude. This has just the right amount of rosy pink to it. It’s so easy to wear with a simple, everyday look (like in the photo below), and it also goes perfectly with a bolder eye look. I love this one so much!
I definitely give the Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Lip Gels two thumbs up. I love them and will be getting a ton of wear out of all three of these timeless shades!
Which one is your favorite?
