My Experience with Marc Jacobs So Sofia #236 Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick:
Super classy and luxurious looking glossy black tube with Marc Jacobs embossed on it. It has a button-like addition which is just for show and serves no real purpose. The mechanism is a regular twist up tube inside.
Texture and Pigmentation:
These Le Marc lipsticks are between a cream and a gel. They glide on the lips with ease without tug or pull and go on with full pigmentation in one swipe, enough to cover even the most pigmented lips. It gives full opaque coverage. The finish is completely matte, but it doesn’t look very monotonous. It has a sheen to it which is not shiny or glossy, but gives the lips a natural pout.
Shade: The shade “So Sofia” is described as electric watermelon. It is a bright fuchsia pink, not for the faint hearted. It definitely screams for attention hence it is better to keep the rest of the makeup neutral and let the lips take center stage whenever you apply a shade like this. I absolutely love this shade and how it brightens up the face; definitely a very unique shade and a shade I don’t own in my collection.
The matte finish complements this shade very well and makes it very wearable. It will complement most skin tones provided you are brave enough to put this on.
Feel on lips: Like all matte lipsticks, this too can feel a bit drying but it never leaves the lips feeling parched. It is not hydrating but it is not very drying either. It will accentuate dry patches, so be sure to exfoliate lips before wearing this for best results. Overall, it’s a very comfortable to wear and it feels very lightweight on the lips.
Staying Power: The staying power is very good. It adheres to the lips and stays put for a strong 8+ hours. It will survive light snacking and drinking. It does fade a little from the middle after a full meal and does need a touch up. It does leave a tint as it fades. It does not smear or bleed. It also transfers very minimally.
Fragrance: It has a light perfume type scent which is not bothersome to me as it fades quickly.
Overall, I feel pure love for this lipstick. I am head-over-heels in love with this shade and the texture and staying power of these lipsticks is fantastic. I highly recommend this!
