Lip of the Week: Marc Jacobs

I am a bit of a lipstick addict (if you didn't pick up on that from the sites name) and I have been
wanting to try the Le Marc Lip Creme lipsticks. I was just picking up a new tube of mascara when I passed the Marc Jacobs stand. I saw it, it grabbed me, I had nothing quite like it...So Sofia. This is, quote the website, an "Electric Watermelon" which is an spot on description. I am a sucker for red lips and this is the summer version. 

Pigmentation: It's is so richly pigmented. The swatch is just one swipe. I am very pleased with this. It reminds me of the pigmentation in the Charlotte Tilburry lipsticks.

Texture: It's a soft matte formula that claims to be "Ultra Hydrating", though I would say it is neither hydrating nor dehydrating. It's very smooth and applies very well and stays in place well. (I still you my Urban Decay Ozone.)

Packaging: Everything Marc Jacob's is sleek and beautiful and this is no different. The closure is magnetic and I just love that little 'click'. It feels nice in my hands and I like the squared, oval shape that is unique. 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. What lipstick have you picked up or are planning
to pick up for the spring/summer months ahead? Tell me in the comments.
