More lip products! YAY! Marc Jacob Beauty is launching their new Gloss Stick on Thursday, 5.31! This brand new lip gloss is a gel lip shine formula that is super hydrating and in stick formula. These are exclusively available at Marc Jacobs initially, but will be fully available across various retailers on the 31st! These lip glosses come in 8 different shades for $28 each. The shades are Sugar Sugar, Mocha Choca-lata!, Uh-huh Honey, P(r)each, Sweet Escape, One Mauve Time, Candy Blong, & Black Cherry Baby.
We are so torn between thinking these are super innovative and also thinking we have seen this a million times before and just didn’t know it… Let me explain. Off the bat, this seems super unique and like a brand new product hitting the market – a lip gloss but in solid, stick form! Whaaaaaa? Just the name Gloss Stick is totally new and unheard of! But then again, isn’t this just like any other shiny lip balm? I mean, the swatches are definitely reflective but they just aren’t thatttttttt much more shiny than some of the lip balms I have. They certainly don’t seem as shiny as a true liquid lip gloss. Don’t we all have some tinted lip balms that look just the same?? And don’t cost almost $30! And also, why are we reinventing the wheel? Do we all secretly have something against liquid lip glosses that we think we suddenly need to turn it into a stick? Is this application method really any better than a normal doe-foot? I’m not sure we can get on board! What do you think??
