I treated myself to a Marc Jacobs Lip Gel in Sephora. It's odd to me that it's referred to as a lip gel because it's just a lipstick! The colour I choose was 'Voila!' which is a stunning magenta shade with a slight blue tone.
The box is classic, luxury and sleek. I love the simplicity of the black and white with the bold silver writing. I'm not someone to keep the boxes of beauty products - in my teens I may have - but for some reason I have kept the box to this one!
When you take the lip gel out of the box you are greeted with a sleek, high shine, oblong tube with the same bold silver lettering with a large silver button detail.
The cap pulls up and has a magnet which clicks it back into place again.
The bullet of the lipstick is rounded which a little different to the ever so slight point that most lipsticks have.
This lipstick is smooth and very glossy. On my lips it feels very moisturising and stays put. I would say it lasts an average amount of time on my lips, nothing more and nothing less. The colour eventually fades after four or five hours but this is typically due to eating or drinking and to be expected.
The bottom line is... let's be frank, this is truly a luxury purchase. I feel special wearing it and that's what matters. However, I have similar lipstick by Rimmel (in Funtime Fushscia) that look almost identical, lasts just as long but it just doesn't have the fancy packaging or the designer brand name. Would I buy it again? I wouldn't buy this shade but if they came to the UK then I have no doubt I would purchase another because I'm worth it!
