If there is something I really don’t need, it’s another pink lipgloss. I have literally hundreds of tubes of the stuff, and I alternate between shades, finishes and tones. I couldn’t resist adding to my collection at the Harvey Nichols Marc Jacobs Beauty launch, when I caught sight of ‘Pink Flamingo’.
A true cotton-candy pink, the gloss is everything I’m after for an everyday staple. The colour is super flattering – with enough colour to feel done, but not too overpowering, which is always a plus, since I tend to wear quite natural-looking makeup. It’s also a great balancer if I’m wearing a darker eye – it gives lips a hint of colour without feeling like it’s too much.
As with my other Marc Jacobs lip gloss, the formula of this is dreamy. It feels quite thick and silky to apply, and there isn’t any gloopiness or stickiness. In fact, it feels more like a balm to wear, and I swear, it’s probably the longest-wearing lipgloss I have, and it easily can last for three to four hours before needing to be touched up. The packaging, like all of the Marc Jacobs Beauty bits, is glorious. I’m obsessed with the slick tube and chic branding too!
