Marc Jacobs introduces a lipgloss in a bullet – is this a summer beauty staple?

Marc Jacobs has been shaking up the beauty world with products that have become cult favourites over the past few years. The designer may be best known for his clothing, but his brand is steadily gaining steam as a heavyweight in the make up and beauty arena too. Now the brand is launching an innovative new lip product that claims to be a lipstick and gloss hybrid.

Marc Jacobs Gloss Sticks promise brilliant shine with a creamy and comfortable texture and the nourishing qualities of a lip balm. That’s a lot of promise for one product! It’s non sticky and offers a high shine finish but without the tackiness of a liquid gloss. It’s minty scent will make you fall in love and there are 8 shades to suit every mood.

Each gloss stick is priced at $28, which really is more than what a good lip gloss should cost. But brands love to cash in on the novelty factor these days (see also unicorn and mermaid inspired makeup). The gloss sticks are available online at Sephora, Neiman Marcus and Marc Jacobs Beauty.
