Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick New Shades

Hold any thoughts of these being ‘sheer’ – my sample of one of the shade extensions for this collection is May Day and it is very, very dark! I gave myself a fright, because from the name, I thought it would be a gentle, juicy shade that just hints at colour on the lip. I don’t even know why sheer is in the name! The term ‘nude’ in make up has become a variable: it basically means any colour but blue.

That said, while I would never, ever pick out May Day as a colour for me, my skin tone has warmed up since I’ve been away and it does really suit me! It’s one of those deep wine shades that either drains the life out of you if you’re pale and would do so to me in winter, or gives you a slightly vampy look if your tone is warm. Today I’m accidentally vampy!

Does that look ‘nude’ to you?! There are four shades in the line extension – I don’t normally cover extensions unless there is something special, but I like this brand more and more and I particularly like that I’ve been accidentally pushed out of my comfort zone and discovered I like it! The other shades are In The Mood, Hey Stranger and Dream Girl. The finish is sheeny and it stayed feeling moist for a couple of hours. It’s £25 HERE.
