A few weeks ago I received these two Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Gloss Sticks in the shades “Candy Bling” and “Uh-Huh Honey” complimentary from Influenster. I have been using them a lot so I could give a proper review!
These glosses come in a stick, and you simply need to twist the package a couple of times to allow part of the stick to come out (the tube doesn’t twist backwards so you only twist enough for one application). You apply it like a lipstick. It feels super moisturizing on my lips, similar to a tinted lip balm. The only drawback for me is that it’s not super long lasting. I do have to reapply it every hour and a half to 2 hours. However that’s not a problem for me, considering how light and hydrating it feels.
As for the shades I was sent, I was very intimidated by “Candy Bling” when I saw the packaging, because I don’t like strong/out there lip colours. However as soon as I put it on, I realised it’s sheer enough to be wearable for those who prefer more natural lips. If you apply it lightly it will be quite natural, if you apply very generously then it will look stronger. “Uh-Huh Honey” also looked like something I wouldn’t enjoy at first. It looks brown on the package and I don’t feel brown tones flatter my lips. But once again, when applied lightly it simply created a golden layer of shimmer over the natural pink of my lips. However, all this being said, I need to proclaim my love for the colour that results from layering both of these colours together. I’m gonna call it “Candy Honey” ? It is the most flattering combination on me and I can’t get enough of it!
In conclusion: I really think this is an excellent everyday lip product for summer. It’s light and refreshing and hydrating to wear on a hot summer day, and not sticky at all!
