I’ve added two more Marc Jacobs Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl Sheers to my collection in Heart Shaped and Overprotected ($28 each for 5.0 ml/0.15 fl oz). I’ve been playing with Kissability for several months and have liked it for the sheer lush glossy finish it gives. These Lip Vinyl Sheers have a soft vanilla scent with a cool minty feel. They have a plumping factor with a very slight tingle but they feel hydrating and refreshing on the lips. My lips normally do not do well with tingly-feeling glosses but the Marc Jacobs Lust for Lacquers are gentle enough to not irritate my super sensitive lips.
Overprotected is a pale milky cool sheer pink. It’s an extremely sheer formula and with my pigmented lips I found it settled into the crevices and emphasizes any lines if I didn’t use a lipliner or lipstick underneath. I find other pale pinks from Armani, Burberry and Chanel easier to wear alone since they have smoother coverage for my pigmented lips. If your natural lip color is on the pale or pinker side this will work better for your lips. I do like this as a layering gloss over pale pink shimmers or nude lipsticks.
Heart Shaped is a coral pink shimmer. This one is also very sheer with a transparent shine. It gives more color on the lips compared to Overprotected but it’s still very sheer. The finish and pigment is similar to Kissability. I like this one better alone with just a bit of lipliner blended around outer edges of the lip.
These come with a flat flexible sponge tip applicator

Thumbs up to Marc Jacobs Heart Shaped for the color and shine. The shimmers have a good mix of coral and pink. I have mixed feelings on Overprotected because it’s a bit high maintenance for me (but it’s mainly because I have pigmented lips). I think based on what I’ve tried I prefer the shimmery colors from the Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl Sheer formula.
