Princess Charlotte, Lipstick and Harrods. I’m in absolute heaven sharing this post with you all!!
Last week I discovered that Marc Jacobs Beauty has officially landed on UK soil. The lovely people at Harrods have made room in their beauty hall to allow us all to get our hands on the cult products that Marc Jabobs is so well known for. No longer do we have to travel across the Atlantic and head for Sephora to get our fix and buy in bulk (although I probably still would given the opportunity!)
The Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Créme comes in a variety of different shades with a formula that promises to last over 10 hours and cover lips in one swipe with a richly pigmented colour. Each lipstick is named after a woman who has inspired Marc, and in conjunction with his arrival on British soil has named one Charlotte. A lovely pink inspired by the deepest saturated tones of an English rose. This colour is exclusive to Harrods.
I have tried a couple of lipsticks from the Marc Jacobs beauty line and have been rather impressed with the formula. I literally couldn’t wait to get my hands on this lipstick, admittedly because of the buzz around the name (I am a Kate and William fan if you hadn’t already guessed!) and the exclusivity to Harrods. It arrived two days after I placed my order and I wore the colour the next day. I can honestly say this lipstick is every bit as beautiful as I hoped and buying blind has, on this occasion, worked out well!
The packaging is sturdy and considerably weighty. It certainly looks expensive. The cover secures magnetically to the base and gives a rather satisfying click in the process!
The colour is a vibrant yet wearable pink. I would say that if you were buying from the name / description alone one would expect more of an earthy muted pink. Perhaps my thoughts of an English Rose are different to some. The pink is very flattering and it suits my cool complexion. I applied this using a lip brush to get a precise and clean finish. It was easy to apply from the bullet and has a soft buttery texture. The staying power of this lipstick is like nothing I have ever experienced before. I did not get transfer on my coffee cup when drinking, which for such a vibrant colour is quite remarkable. It didn’t last through lunch however once reapplied took me straight through to the evening.
As you can see from the images above, the lipstick has a lovely sheen to it. I really enjoyed wearing this and would recommend trying it out if you are ever visiting Harrods.
The Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Créme is priced at £24.00 and is exclusively available from Harrods. I was going to love it anyway purely for being named after Princess Charlotte, but I can honestly say this is my favourite lipstick I have bought in recent times!
I hope you enjoyed taking a look at the lipstick that caused a buzz on twitter. Let me know if you have tried it out, or can recommend any other colours from the collection!
Talk to you all soon x
