I haven’t used very many Marc Jacobs Beauty cosmetic items. I’m interested in the brand and how the products perform, I just seem to always find something else. I couldn’t tell you when I received this lipstick but I can tell you that this is the colour that’s most frequently given as a sample or in a promo gift bag etc.

The colour itself is described as “baked rose” when looking at the colour of the stick prior to application, it does appear to be ever so slightly dusted. Upon application, the colour appears much brighter. I would almost describe it as the colour Elle Woods or Barbie might wear when they became “middle-aged”.


The colour is bright enough to pop but not so bright it’s all you look at. It’s a very complimentary colour with blue undertones that has it bordering fuchsia. Applied lightly it gives the lips a nice flush.

How it sits

It isn’t a drying formula but it’s not hydrating either, it falls into the creases of your lips but doesn’t stray from the contours of your lips. In other words, it doesn’t give you that veiny look, it feels nice and long lasting.
