Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Lip Gel in Role Play


As far as I am concerned, Marc Jacobs is on a bit of a hot streak at the moment. The line recently revamped their lipsticks, introducing shades (some new, others old) in two formulas: the Lip Crèmes and the Sheer Lip Gels. Role Play is from the Sheer Lip Gels line, but I don't find it to be especially sheer. Additionally, although the color is described as a 'dusty rose' on Sephora.com, I don't find it to be especially rosy, either!

But despite these slightly misleading descriptions, I'm already head over heals with this lipstick! In the bullet, Role Play looks like it will be a mauvey rose. On my lips, however, it pulls much warmer and peachier (with less brown than appears in the swatch above). I find warm peachy nudes to be exceptionally difficult to pull off, so to find one that I like is a downright miracle! A miracle that Marc Jacobs has managed to achieve. I'm not sure what makes this shade so easy to wear, but I suspect it is the fact that it is warm but not too warm and has enough color that, although I would classify it as a 'nude' shade, it doesn't give the dreaded concealer lips look.



Role Play feels wonderful on the lips. Unlike many sheer lipsticks that feel a bit oily or greasy on the lips (like the YSL Sheer Candy lipsticks), this feels creamy and yet exceptionally light. I'm not sure what kind of sorcery Marc Jacobs used to achieve this, but it is delightful. The only giveaway that this is a 'sheer' lipstick is that it does not have great lasting power. I found myself needing to reapply Role Play about every hour or two, but I should also disclose that I drink coffee/tea/water non-stop throughout the day. I haven't tried this lipstick with a liner yet, but I suspect that it would at least help improve the staying power. But if a super long-lasting lipstick is a must have for you, I would advise checking out the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crèmes (see my review of Je T'Aime here) instead.

Ummm....please excuse the craziness that is my hair. 
But for those of you who don't mind reapplying, this formula is a winner in my book. Role Play will certainly not be the last Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Lip Gel that I pick up. The only question is which shade should be next? The Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Lip Gels are available at Sephora or MarcJacobsBeauty.com for $30.
