My advice is to try the mini version of a makeup product when one is available. I purchased the Marc Jacobs Mini Liquid Lip Crayons Kit, “Make Your Le Marc.” I bought the mini instead of buying the regular size liquid lip crayon. The reason I did this is purchasing a lipstick can be a tough job. First, you can’t tell exactly what the shade will look like. For example, your lipstick shade looks one way under the lights of a department store. Next, look at yourself in the rearview mirror of your car. Don’t you think the shade looks different than it did in the mall? Then, you go home. Again, the lipstick looks different in the lighting in your house. Afterwards, you go out to dinner. Now, you are licking your lips because the lipstick is drying out your lips. See what I mean?
A great way to choose a lipstick , if your lucky that it comes in mini, is…. buy it. Then try it! See if you like the color when you are in the house. Next, look at yourself in a restaurant. Do you still like it? How does the formula feel? The Marc Jacobs Mini Liquid Lip Crayons Kit is the way to go if you want to try a liquid lip crayon from Le Marc!
You can find Make Your Le Marc, Marc Jacobs Mini Liquid Lip Crayons Kit on the Marc Jacobs Website, Sephora, and Neiman Marcus. Right Now, Sephora has it on sale for $17.50. Currently, Neimans and Marc Jacobs retail the liquid lip crayon for $25.
Marc Jacobs Mini Liquid Lip Crayons Kit Packaging
To start, the liquid lip crayon is in the form of a crayon. The result is you get greater precision from a crayon than you would get with a doe foot applicator. One reason is, it is much easier to define your lips. Therefore, you can draw the perfect lip line because the point of the crayon is the perfect tool to use to line your lips. Then, it is easy to color in your lips. After all, isn’t that what a crayon is for? Did you learn to color in the lines?
In addition, the crayon has a cover. It is very important to snap the lid on when you are finished with the crayon. Otherwise, the formula will dry out.
Marc Jacobs Mini Liquid Lip Crayons Kit Formula
To begin with, the liquid crayon’s formula is lightweight. As a result, it doesn’t feel weighty on your lips. One swipe is all you need for bold-impact color. The lipstick claims it lasts up to 16 hours. Furthermore, it is super easy to apply. The crayon, and the formula glide on the lips. And, the liquid formula feels soft and smooth. In addition, you have enough play time before the dry-down time begins, and ends. In fact, I think the dry down is what you’d expect from a liquid texture.
Marc Jacobs Mini Liquid Lip Crayons Shades
Three shades are included in the Le Marc kit. First, Night Mauves is a soft, pink-mauve shade. For me, this shade is a neutral, day-time shade. The reason for this is it is soft and pearly. However, my favorite shade is Plum N’ Get It. I love that it is a rich plum shade. I would wear this shade morning, noon, and night. It is that pretty!!!! Last, I really like Burn Notice. It is a brick brown shade. I will wear Burn Notice as a day – time look, and on casual nights out, such as movie night!
Marc Jacobs Mini Liquid Lip Crayons Last But Not Least……
This is a good one. I am really loving Marc Jacobs lately. It is a step above trendy, and still a luxury product. Also, I love that the brand has some mini kits for the holiday season. It is a great way to try out the brand. Also, I like that the kit has a choice of three colors. Also, the kit is three dollars less than one regular sized Liquid Lip Crayon.
I think that is a great bargain, and a great way to try three different shades.
What do you like about mini kits? Do you use them for travel? For me, a mini kit is like getting three super-deluxe samples!
