I was completely seduced by the packaging for the Marc Jacobs Beauty Kiss Pop Lip Color. It’s a lipstick bullet actually shaped like a bullet with a tip like a colour crayon. The top is pulled off with a click and the product twists up like a traditional lipstick but again the tip is like a colour crayon.
I choose the lightest shade in the range, Peony Pink, and I’m hard pressed to think of a lipstick I’ve been so disappointed by. It’s not even that my expectations were set too high because of how beautiful it looks and how expensive it is. Even if this lipstick cost £5 I’d still feel I’d wasted my money.
The formula is very dry and ageing. This isn’t helped by the colour which is, to be frank, quite ‘old lady’. It’s slightly improved with a slick of balm on top but it still doesn’t look quite right as the colour has already seeped into lip lines and this doesn’t happen with a good coloured moisturising lip product. It lasts a few hours worn neat but fades unevenly. When you add a balm on top you get about an hours worth of colour from it.
The Kiss Pop Lip Color Sticks are divided up into 2 pinks, 2 roses, 3 reds and 2 berrys. I now wish I’d chosen any other colour. Or even better, not been enticed by the sleek silver casing in the first place.
The Marc Jacobs Kiss Pop Lip Color Sticks are $28 from Sephora.
