Happiness is Matching Lipstick and Lip Liner: A Review of the Marc Jacobs Longwear Lip Set

On Thursday I worked until 7pm, missed my gym class due to traffic, and everything just feels ugh. On those nights it’s so lovely to come home to a Sephora box. Especially one containing the new Marc Jacobs Longwear Lip Set. I am ridiculously pleased with this product already and I’ve only owned it for a few hours. Nothing makes me happier then matching. I still long for the matching twinsets of the 50s.

So polished! Love these vintage looks!

The arrival of my travel size and reasonably priced ($26 CAD) lip liner and lipstick in the shade Slow Burn was just what my face needed to turn my frown upside down!

This is how I imagine a Marc Jacobs friendly post-it would look.

Sephora describes this set perfectly, “This Marc Jacobs Beauty collection brings together two, travel-sized lip essentials in Slow Burn, Marc Jacobs’s bestselling, flattering creamy nude rose shade. Line and shape lips with (P)outliner Longwear Lip Pencil. The innovative gel formula is infused with collagen, and glides on effortlessly. Pair with Le Marc Lip Creme. This luxurious lipstick delivers one-swipe color that lasts up to 10 hours, with a rich and creamy feel. Together, these two lip essentials create a flattering, wearble look for day or night.”

I have a business trip coming up next week so I know that I’ll be packing this powerful duo. It’s a modern take on the nude lip with a definite brownish hint to the rose tint.

What I love best about this duo is how NICE it feels on my chapped, chewed lips! Seriously, it is fabulous. I was worried that the product would sting going on or really highlight how try and cracked my lips are, but I can only say good things about this product. … I literally just did a happy dance in my chair while typing all this.

Here’s a swatch and a selfie:

Only a Marc Jacobs combination could get me smiling for a selfie after such a looooooong day.

What make-up turns your frowns upside down?
