Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer

Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer in Allow Me
Allow Me to introduce you to the new Marc Jacobs lip glosses. The full name, the Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquers, is quite a mouthful but it's also quite accurate as these glosses (or at least the shade I picked up, Allow Me....see what I did there?!) are indeed very high shine.

The range offers 18 shades and, without swatching, I went for Allow Me, a rosy shimmer. These lipglosses are not sticky in the slightest (great if you hate sticky glosses; less ideal if you want a gloss that will stay on your lips all day). They are also scented of mint, but not the tingly/lip-plumping mint of the Buxom glosses, for example. The applicator is also slightly unique: it is a flattened doe foot applicator (this isn't the unique part) but it is almost floppy, rather than stiff. This means that it bends to fit your lip as you apply. I almost wish it were stiffer like a more traditional applicator, though, as the floppiness makes it more challenging to get a crisp line upon application.

Wearing Allow Me on the lips, Colourpop Sequin on the lids. 
As I only have this one shade (so far) I am unable to describe how other shades apply. But I can say that Allow Me offers a sheer wash of color onto the lips. The shimmer in this rosy shade doesn't feel gritty on the lips and I find it to be a flattering and easy-to-wear color. If you like super shiny lipglosses that offer a bit of color to compliment your lipstick, these would be an excellent choice. But if you are looking for a gloss that packs a lot of pigmentation, you'll probably be disappointed by these!

The Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquers are available at Sephora and Marc Jacobs Beauty for $28. Have you tried these yet? Any shades that you love? I've got my eye on Rebel Rebel and Taboo to pick up next!

P.S. I just ordered a brand new DSLR to replace my current one, which is 8 years old and has been having lots of issues over the past year. I'm excited to be able to take better—and more color accurate—photos in the very near future!
