Recently, I picked up some of the newly-released Marc Jacobs lipsticks (Hot Cocoa). What prompted me to buy these were the fact taht unlike traditional liquid lipsticks, these are actually lip cremes which promise long wear and hydration. This review will be on Marc Jacobs liquid lip creme in the shade “Shush Blush.”
A hydrating, eight-hour wear, liquid lipstick in a range of bold, full-coverage n*des.
What it does: Lasting wear meets hydration for a completely new liquid lipstick sensation with Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème. Enjoy the indulgent creaminess of this lipstick—now available in a luxurious liquid formula that glides onto lips so that they stay looking plump and full all day long. Formulated with Brazilian cupuaçu butter and collagen, the rich, creamy texture always feels cushiony, and lips never appear lined or cracked. Featuring a range of bold nudes and a delicate vanilla scent, each stroke of the velvety doe-foot applicator delivers unexpected, full, nude coverage with a subtle, satin sheen. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates.
My Experience with Marc Jacobs Shush, Blush 456 Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme:
Packaging: Marc Jacobs is known for its ultra sleek, modernist aesthetics and following the theme of most MJ products, this lip creme comes in a glossy black tube with reflective silver detailing.
The shade is visible through a tiny window on the tube, which I thought was a nice touch to help differentiate amongst your collection. The wand is a standard doe foot which I found to be very precise in lining and filling the lips and it also holds a decent amount of product.
Consistency: This lip creme is of luxuriously thick and creamy consistency yet it is not heavy. It spreads evenly on the lips with absolutely no streaking.
Pigmentation: I was very very impressed with the pigmentation. It delivers full opaque color in a single layer. There is no streaking whatsoever.
Shade: “Shush Blush” is my most favorite out of the 3 shades I own. This color might possibly be one my favorite colors to wear. It a stunning reddish pink and strikes the perfect balance as an everyday wearable shade but not quite falling in the boring MLBB pink family. I absolutely adore this!
Finish: Initially applied, the finish is quite glossy but after an hour or two settles to a satin.
Feel on lips and Staying Power: This is not the kind of liquid lipstick that settles to a completely dry finish and is transfer proof. I would say its about 75-80% transfer proof. It remains hydrating throughout the wear time and my lips never ever feel uncomfortable with it on. There is mild settling in the lines which is only noticeable from up close. I notice slight fading after 6-7 hours with snacking and drinking breaks, but overall, most of the color still remained intact. I do need to reapply after a full meal. It leaves a slight stain behind as it fades.
Fragrance: It has a mild vanilla scent which I don’t find bothersome.
Overall, Marc Jacobs lipstick have always impressed me in the past; in fact, Le Marc lipstick formula is one of my top favorites and I am happy to add these lip cremes on that list as well. This color is an absolute knock out of the park for me. I highly recommend this!

Cons of Marc Jacobs Shush, Blush 456 Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme:
