[Review] Marc Jacobs Le Marc Creme Lipstick in the Shade of Core Cora

This is my very first Marc Jacobs lipstick. In Marc Jacobs Beauty line, they have a few different lipstick range Kiss Pop Lipstick, New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick, Le Marc KK Bang, Le Marc Blow and the one I settled for is the more generic one, Le Marc Creme Lipstick. 

What it is?
Indulge your pout with Marc’s new revolutionary 10-hour lipstick that covers your lips with buttery, creamy vibrant pigment with one pigment-saturated swipe. Experience unprecedented color payoff from concentrated color-boost pigments that are triple-milled and steeped in hydrating ingredients, so your lips experience ultimate long-lasting color and moisture.

Texture & finishing

As the name suggests, the lipstick has a cream texture. The finishing is matte but non-drying. I find it a bit flaky when I have chapped lips. It has very strong pigment that leaves stain. it doesn't last for 10-hours long, but easily withstand 6 hours. 

The shade
Core Cora is a bright red with orange undertone. The colour is one that can suit many skintone. If you're not used to wearing red lipstick, the Core Cora is one safe colour to try. 

What I love about it
The sleek packaging makes it a chic lipstick to be carried in your purse. The shade is flattering and lights up my face whenever I wear it. I also appreciate the fact that it is very long lasting, so I'm saving this lipstick for occasions such as wedding dinner, meetings, travelling and other long hour events. 

What I don't like about it
I can't afford to use this as my daily lipstick because the tube doesn't store a lot of product in it. Although the price may seem reasonable for luxury brand lipstick, it is very expensive if you break down to the amount of product you get for a single dollar. 

If you're looking for a long lasting and pigmented lipstick, the Le Marc Creme won't disappoint you. However, some preparation needed to scrub and buff your lips to ensure no dead skin cells on your lips. Otherwise, I believe there are other lipstick similar in quality that comes with lower price tag. 

The Marc Jacobs Beauty lipsticks are available at Sephora for RM110.
