Marc Jacobs Beauty Lovemarc Lip Gel in Have We Met?

Dipping another toe into the Marc Jacobs water, I found a lipstick I love: Lovemarc Lip Gel ($30) in Have We Met? I need more of these!

Lovemarc Lip Gel is a color-saturated, long-wearing, gellified lipstick with a sleek shine finish. Just like most lipsticks advertised as long-wearing, I get average wear time from it. However, I don't have unrealistic expectations. A few hours, and I'm happy.

Fall in love with Marc’s irresistible, gellified lipstick. Full of pure pigment, this long-wearing lipstick has an irresistibly touchable texture. Unlike traditional waxy lipsticks, Lovemarc’s cutting-edge, gellified formula delivers the utmost in creaminess, comfort, and color payoff. An infusion of monoi butter - a velvety cream made from the tropical tiare flower - provides intense hydration, while myrrh extract works to reduce the signs of aging. An innovative 3-D plumping agent adds gentle volume. The vivid shades were all inspired by Marc’s favorite movies.


Very subtly scented with vanilla, Lovemarc will delight you. I can barely smell the vanilla. As a rule, I don't care for scented lipsticks, but this one is barely scented, and the scent dissipates quickly.

The warm, shimmering pink of Have We Met? is gorgeous. I took swatch photos in full, morning sun. How could anyone resist this gorgeous shade?

Besides offering beautiful color, a pretty shine, and creamy, comfortable hydration, the lipstick comes in an elegant black tube with a magnetic snap. I think Role Play, a dusty rose, may be my next purchase. There will definitely be a next purchase.

You can find Marc Jacobs cosmetics at Sephora and select Marc Jacobs boutiques. I purchased mine at Sephora (online) during the sale.

It looks a lot like the Lancôme you just featured ;-))

I went back and forth on these lippies during the sale. I think I need to give them a try. The color is gorgeous!

Pretty! I ordered Showstopper during the VIB sale. It's a true red...not one of your favorites, I know, but it's a great red that I use as a stain. I do want at least one or two more colors!

I have been wondering if it would be worthwhile to add some of the Marc Jacobs makeup to my kit, and now after your review I can't wait to go pick out a few pieces!

Hi CG. I think you will love Role Play. Very much a MLBB shade. I'm on my second tube.

I was going to give Marc Jacobs a try during the Sephora sale, but the only color I was really interested in was sold out--Have We Met. I'll have to be faster when it's back in stock!

Funny but I've been passing by the Marc Jacobs whenever I'm in Sephora. I'll have to take a look.

In other news, OMG! Be still my beating heart! Beautyhabit is having their friends & family sale today thru Wed with the code FF13. My list is long!

The jury is out for me on this one. I'm still on the fence as to whether I like it or not. Pretty colors, but I'm not so sure about the texture. I'm still trying to find out some info on a new liquid lipstick from Lancome thats already released in the UK but not here in the states. Its called L'Absolu Velours and the colors are stunning. I sure hope to see more on this soon.

I thought they were all just super-bright from the advertising, so I didn't think they'd be for me. But "Role Play" sounds like a lovely color. And the quality of this color you swatched is superb!

I love this color! These tones of pinks are my favorite for lips. This might be my first Marc Jacobs buy.
