“Heels and red lipstick will put the fear of God into people.” – Dita von Teese
Although the closing down of Marc Jacobs’ sister line Marc by Marc Jacobs is sad news, we’re excited to see the evolving Marc Jacobs Beauty line. The new Spring 2015 debut collection of Le Marc Lip Crème lipsticks presents itself in an array of vibrant hues that beautifully complement the power dressing trend we saw and loved at the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival.
The collection boasts 20 iconic shades for every occasion and skin tone but what instantly caught our eye are the stunning shades of red. A red lipstick is a classic staple in every make-up kit and if you don’t already have a couple of tubes on the ready, this Spring 2015 Collection will change that.
Aside from the arresting hues, these lipsticks are also a luxurious punch of pigment in a rich, velvety texture and with a fantastic 10-hour hydrating formula. After all, who has time to worry about flaky lips when you’re in the midst of moving from one power meeting to another or closing big business deals?
Marc makes beauty irreverent and fun, and encourages you to break the rules. You’ll find cheeky names like ‘Oh Miley’ and ‘Boy Gorgeous’ behind his bold shades as a tribute to the women who have inspired him throughout his life.
woman with drive test drove a few shades and can confirm that the buttery soft, hydrating nature makes each lipstick an absolute pleasure to glide on. With antioxidant-rich ingredients like cocoa butter and sea berry, the luxe factor is undeniable.
Lasting the full 10 hours wasn’t a problem either and touch-ups throughout the day were close to none. This is definitely a lipstick created for women on the go who need to look polished but don’t have the time to fuss over the small details.
Now all that’s left to do is to pick your perfect red so here’s a snappy guide to doing just that:
woman with drive love:
Goddess for a classic and powerful bold red
Scandal and Blow for a dark berry full of attitude
Cora Cora for a vibrant dash of bright coral
