It seems like Marc Jacobs just can’t make up his mind.
After reinventing their line of lipsticks, he’s pulled a Madonna and reinvented his line of glosses too.
The 18-shade Enamoured Hi-Shine Lip Lacquers is a line of glosses that delivers maximum colour and brilliance with its Triple Shine Complex, a blend of high-performance ingredients that provide unstoppable wear and shine. The collection is half nudes and half bold shades, so there’s a colour for everyone. The biggest selling point for me was the mint scent, which not only freshens your breath, but also gives you that tingly feeling that is commonly associated with plumping glosses (although these are marketed as being plumpers).
I received two shades, French Tickler, an iridescent peach shimmer, and Whip It, a bold iridescent magenta. I love layering French Tickler over a nude lipstick to just jazz it up as it provides just the right amount of shine to my lips. On it’s own, it’s not the best gloss for colour payoff, but when layered over a lipstick (especially a matte) one, it creates just enough jazz to add some dimension to the lips. As for Whip It, I’m usually not gravitated towards bold glosses, as I usually save my dark colour option for lipsticks, but this gloss is beautiful. It’s definitely a lot more louder on the lips than it looks just in the tube. It’s the perfect magenta pink that’s not too in your face, making it perfect for any season. Wear it on it’s own for a lighter wash of colour, or over similar shade of lipstick to really deepen it up.
Although the colours are great, best of all, these aren’t that sticky, but rather quite comfortable, which if you know my annoyance for sticky glosses, is a big plus for me.
I’ve tried Marc Jacobs original glosses when he first launched the line and were impressed with those as well. The packaging has changed since then, with the Enamored line being more square and the original gloss line, Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl, housed in a flat-ish tube. Regardless, both are super chic, and look expensive. I also found the original line to be way shinier, although these guys definitely pack a punch in the shininess department themselves. I don’t really see a huge difference between the two lines. This one may be a tad less sticky and major points for the mint scent as well.
Overall, I was really impressed with these guys and considering that I’m not a gloss girl, I can definitely see myself reaching for these when I want to amp up my lipsticks. Kudos Marc Jacobs, you nailed it!
