New Marc Jacobs Beauty: Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon and Cream and Sugar Trio

January 24, 2018

New Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon and Cream and Sugar Trio | The Beauty Look Book

There are some new Marc Jacobs Beauty launches out now for the lips and I have a few swatches of some of the shades! A new lipstick formula is out called the Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon ($26 each for 0.07 oz/ 2 g). Also new is a super cute set of minis called Cream and Sugar Nude Lip Trio ($25) with a new color of liner, gloss and lipstick called Cream and Sugar.

The Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayons are ultra pigmented smooth chubby sticks. Marc Jacobs Beauty calls this “liquid lip in a stick.” These are one-swipe wonders with a rich creamy texture that feels like it melts into the skin. They have something they also call “ghost pearl” which is a very subtle sheen you can see on the lips to add dimension. Formula-wise these are incredible. Probably the most cushiony chubby pencils I’ve ever tried. They’re super comfortable on the lips and last like a long-wear lipstick. I love that they have a little shine/sheen and don’t look dry like a lot of the current lip trends did last year. The only downside for me and pretty much a deal breaker for most of the colors is that the colors are very dark and bold. As a neutral lip lover there is only one shade I feel I can pull off which is Night Mauves.

I have four colors:

  • Send Nudes is a deep brown nude, this makes me look dead
  • Night Mauves is a pearly soft pink, doesn’t really pull mauve on me but I love this shade!
  • Pink Straight is a super bold bright pink
  • Plum N Get It is a bold plum

I would have liked some more natural shades or medium-brights like the colors from the Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim line or Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur formula. But the formula is top notch! Another look + swatches below. Packaging is in a twist-up format and the lids have a special locking feature when you press down so they don’t pop off easily in your purse. I love little details like this!

I added an arm swatch of Le Marc Liquid Lip in Slow Burn which to me is the best neutral medium rose color ever made:

Next is the Cream and Sugar Nude Lip Trio which has a new shade Cream and Sugar. It comes with minis of the Le Marc Lip Creme (peachy nude), (P)Outliner (peachy nude) and Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss (pearly gold champagne). I’m completely obsessed with all the colors and hope this means we can expect new shades in the full sizes soon. The lipstick is full coverage and opaque with a creamy feel (review on the formula when it originally launched here). The lipliner is really opaque and matte so it does tug a little on bare lips. The gloss is super pretty with a sheer finish.

Lipstick and liner have no detectable scent or taste. Gloss has a slight minty scent like all the other glosses. They have a nice cushiony feel and even though this gloss has sparkle it’s still smooth without any gritty feel.

This swatch shows the gold pearl of the gloss better, there are multi-colored sparkles which makes it hard to photograph all aspects of the gloss:

I’m completely in love with Cream and Sugar Lip Trio. I’ve bought some of the other mini sets they had which are usually limited-edition. Right now it’s still available in Slow Burn. For the Lip Crayons I love Night Mauves. Since I know not everyone is a neutral lip lover like me I do think a lot of women who like bold lips will find something to love. The formula is soooooo good, I do hope they expand the line.

You can find both available now at Sephora and Marc Jacobs Beauty. The trio is limited-edition.

    Dang. I like all except for that brown color. Do you really think these are worth it? I have way too much. I was waiting for your review of the cream and sugar. Are the reviews and swatches of Pat McGrath’s new launch soon? My flu needs pretty things to look at! Also, have you tried the new Tatcha cleanser? I love it!

    • The formula is phenomenal, but if you’re unsure I’d say wait as there are lots coming out for spring so you may want to see about the new launches before splurging on one.

      I have not yet seen the new Pat McGrath lips. I have tried the Tatcha cleanser, it’s amazing – review as soon as I can. Lots to catch up on!

  • Swingtime

    The crayons really are all that. (I’m coming to like pencils better than conventional lipsticks these days.) I’m fortunate that “Send Nudes” is wearable for me, but I too prefer a neutral lip, so I doubt that I’ll be buying more unless they extend the shade range. Great review and swatches (as always)!

    • Awesome! Send Nudes looks so pretty on my arm but I can’t wear it on my lips well 🙁 Glad it works for you though!! xoxo

  • Slow Burn is still my favorite lip color from MJB

  • I so love chubby sticks can’t wait to try these out!

  • Megan Kim

    I LOVE your blog. This is my go-to source for reviews and just for fun! There are so many luxury products that are out of my reach- but i’m still so curious about what they’re like! Your swatches can’t be beat- better than what’s advertised by the brands or stores! I just wanted to say THANK YOU because i’ve been a faithful reader for years and suddenly felt compelled to say this is one of my absolute favorite blogs that i check everyday! THANK YOU!

    Sabrina Send Nudes does not look bad on you. You’re too hard on yourself!

  • Jessica

    I love nude lips but can’t seem to find one that suits my skintone, I’ve tried a couple of the lip cremes from another mini set they had and neither colour suited me 🙁

  • Gail A

    I never tried any Marc but I hear the mascara is better than Chanel. I might need to check out this collection

  • Tessa

    I feel exactly the same as you on these chubby sticks! I need more neutral shades — they’re all a bit too bold for me! I hope they release more. Glad to hear the formula is amazing.

  • inkchick

    I have Night Mauves and adore it, even though mauve isn’t usually the most becoming shade on me.


    Send nudes and Plum n get it are amazing colors for me, I really love more bold lips and I would just like to try and pair these with the Natasha Denona blushes. Imagine that! 😀

  • Meghan M

    I have Night Mauves – but Send Nudes is next on the list. It’s stunning on you!

  • Definitely love Marc Jacobs ! The lip crayons sure look convenient and great color choices as always.

  • Laurie M.

    Thanks for swatching even the lip crayons you don’t like (they all look good with your skin tone from the photos) – it really helps when picking online. I wish I could wear those paler shades but they really wash me out 🙁

    I contemplated picking up the Sephora Favorites lip set to get the Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon (and the Fenty mini)! Not sure that’s my most flattering color, though.

  • Alison

    I could totally wear Sends Nudes!

  • nelle

    I love that this is a launch of lip pencils “liquid lip in a pencil” that I can wear all the shades because they are so pigmented! Thank you for the review!

  • Cyndi Nguyen

    OMG! I have been wanting to try Marc Jacobs lipsticks. I got a sample from Sephora and it was so pigmented. I’ve been wanting to try other shades as well.

  • Jennifer

    The lip crayon packaging is really beautiful. Hopefully they add more shades!

  • Rachel T

    I’m not sure how I feel about metallics on lips…. feels reminiscent of 80s frosted lipstick. Not sure I am brave enough to go there yet lol

  • Can we petition to have every cosmetic brand include the special locking feature on their lip crayons now?? The amount of times my makeup bag has been ruined by a weak cap when there’s a preventable feature like this!

  • dollfeis

    Wow I’m surprised that the lip crayons are so dark! I’ll hold off on those for now. Hoping MJ will come out with more wearable nudes soon.

  • Jenny B

    I love the packaging of the lip crayons especially since they have that twist lock but I agree, the shades are quite bold. i much prefer the shades in the trio.

  • Stephanie

    I’ve seen a couple of reviews on these lip crayons and I’m so curious about the texture. But I’m like you and definitely a nude lip wearer so will probably wait to try these when/if they come out with more colors.

  • Suzanne Lewinson

    I’ve never tried anything from Marc Jacobs before. But I love the look of the lip crayons.

  • Breanna Pollard


  • Lindsay A.

    AHHH, have been searching for the right pinky-ish nude-ish color & the Marc Jacobs cream and sugar lip creme looks like it! Excited to find this color to try at Sephora!!

  • Becca Quach

    Love the nude colors! 😍
