My Experience with Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Crème Kiss Kiss Bang Bang:
I love the packaging. So sleek and elegant with a glossy black finish with the designer’s name embossed in silver. It has silver button which is just for show and serves no real purpose except maybe to give leverage while opening lipstick but either way it can be easily opened with just a pull of the cap. Never the less I do like how the tube looks overall.
The shade 2016 Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is described as baked rose. It is very true to the name by being a beautiful everyday pink. It looks very much like a MLBB shade on me but a shade brighter. The brightness of the pink tone gives the face a healthy, upbeat look while still maintaining its very wearable nature. I can see this shade working for variety of skin tones for light to dark.
Finish & Pigmentation:
This lipstick has a crème-gel like texture which does glide smooth on the lips. It is not as creamy and silky on the lips as lets say the Nars Audacious lipsticks or for that matter any other creamy lipstick but it still goes on with absolute full color in 1 swipe. You do need 1-2 coats to make the color look even and it is very easy to build up the color on the lips without it bunching up in gloppy feel.
The finish on this lipstick is semi-matte. It does not have any hint of shine, sheen or shimmer. The finish even though matte does not look flat and monotonous like most other complete matte lipsticks.
Feel on Lips:
The feel on lips is highly comfortable. It is not drying but it not hydrating either. It does feel more and drier as the day wears on but never to a point that it gets uncomfortable or makes my lips look parched and devoid of moisture.
It does not accentuate fine lines on lips unless I apply more than 2 coats. It may accentuate dryness and chapped lips hence it is better to exfoliate your lips before wearing this.
It has a very subtle and light floral perfume type scent which I like.
Overall,a very good lip product put forth by the Designer Marc Jacobs. It truly lives up to the quality that I expected it to deliver and not to mention the color selection range is absolutely gorgeous which will have something for everybody. I will recommend this product to all.
