Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lip Gloss in “Allow Me” Review & Swatch-
Hello my lovelies 🙂
I have tried all sorts of lip glosses- drugstore ones, mid-range ones & the higher end ones like MAC,Bobbi Brown & so on. Of them, I have liked only the ones from Maybelline if I remember correctly & the MAC lipglasses in spite of being very nice & shiny are terribly sticky so I loathe how that feels on lips 😐 On my quest of finding the perfect gloss, I think I might have stumbled on to the best lip gloss in the world (yes, really!)- so much so that I already have 3 overpriced shades 😛 I will be reviewing the very first shade called “Allow Me” 🙂
What Marc Jacobs Says-
Supreme Gloss. Covetable Color. Shine Like 30 Coats of Lacquer.
Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer Lipgloss delivers maximum color and brilliance. This mint-scented lip gloss collection features an array of creamy pinks, shimmering lavenders, and iridescent brights that give lips a lush look with lasting color and unbelievable shine. Formulated with a unique Triple Shine Complex, a blend of high-performance ingredients, it delivers unstoppable wear and shine like “30 coats of lacquer.” The brilliant shine contributes to an optical plumping look, and it feels cushiony on the lips—not sticky.
The shade names in the collection are inspired by Marc Jacobs’ favourite music.
Enamored’s super shiny finish was inspired by Marc’s coffee table, which was finished with 30 coats of lacquer for the perfect, customized shine.
This product is a two-time Allure Best of Beauty award winner.
Price: 28 USD in USA & 22 GBP for 4 ml in UK
My take on the Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lip Gloss in “Allow Me”-
The packaging is sleek, sturdy & convenient in a transparent tube with a nice doe-foot applicator 🙂 Easy to apply & carry 🙂
The texture is slightly on the thicker side but pleasantly hydrating & completely non-sticky! It glides on very easily on my lips & instantly plumps & hydrates them without any tacky or sticky feel. I have no idea how shiny 30 coats of lacquer might be but this one is certainly a keeper! It has a brilliant, mirror-like shine & lovely texture without accentuating any dry patches or lip lines.
The coverage is semi-opaque & my natural lip color hardly peeks through with this shade. With lighter shades though it’s a different story.
The shade “Allow Me” is a beautiful rosy pink shade with golden flecks which looks absolutely stunning on lips & will be equally lovely on every complexion. I love pairing it with any lighter lip color as well as wearing it on my own.
I have a teeny tiny issue with the lasting power though as for a lip gloss so pricey, it lasts for hardly 3-4 hours through food & drinks after which I have to touch up again. But it doesn’t matter since I am just besotted with the formula & shades <3
