Marc Jacobs ‘The Sofia’ Five Piece Petites Le Marc Collection – Review
If you’re looking for a lipstick that glides on, is extremely pigmented in just one swipe and lasts for 10 hours, then you need to try the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme Lipsticks. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the Marc Jacobs ‘The Sofia’ Five Piece Petites Le Marc Collection in this post.
The limited edition collection is inspired by Director Sofia Coppola and features 5 mini Le Marc Lip Creme Lipsticks housed in a patent Marc Jacobs clutch! Each lipstick is packaged beautifully in a sleek black and silver tube and the 5 shades include:
Blow 210 (Burgundy)
So Sofia 236 (Bright Coral Red)
Dashing 206 (Red with a Cool Undertone)
Infamous 228 (Muted Warm Pink)
Boy Gorgeous 222 (Dark Magenta Red)
With a velvet matte finish, these lipsticks are formulated with hydrating properties that allow the product to glide onto the lips and wear comfortably for 10 hours. Each shade is beautifully pigmented and provide a opaque finish with just 1-2 swipes.
Leaving a slight stain behind, the lipstick wears very well and once applied, they are amazingly comfortable to wear on the lips and I didn’t notice any bleeding even after hours and hours of wear. Lips don’t feel dry nor is there any flaking caused by the velvet matte formula.
@marcbeauty 'The Sofia', a 5 piece petites le Marc lip creme collection inspired by Sofia Coppola is exclusive for Christmas. The stunning mini lipsticks (in the shades Infamous, Dashing, So Sofia, Boy Gorgeous and Blow) come housed in a gorgeous fashion clutch! It'll be available at @sephoraaus for $60.
They truly are long lasting – I wore the shade Dashing to a wedding last month and after 12 hours of wear, I did not touch up once, even after eating and drinking! The only wearing away I noticed was towards the inner lip and even then, I didn’t feel the need to touch up as it wasn’t too noticeable.
I am extremely impressed by these lipsticks and I love the range of shades in this collection. There are deep bold shades, nude shades and everyday shades that make this purchase such a great investment as you’ll get a lot of wear from these 5 lipsticks. The mini size also makes them easy to take with you when attending events and the smaller bullet allows for precise application/touch ups even when you’re out and about.
The Marc Jacobs ‘The Sofia’ Five Piece Petites Le Marc Collection retails for $60 and is available from Sephora. The full size lipsticks are also available for $43 from Sephora.
