Marc Jacobs Beauty's newest launch is a lip gloss and balm hybrid – Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick. The packaging design looks like the regular Marc Jacobs lip glosses, but what looks like the black cap is actually the tube housing the balm-like gloss stick.  I find the packaging quite brilliant, but it might be a bit impractical to pick out from a jumbled up bag of lip products.  Unlike regular twist-up tubes of balm, these gloss sticks have a more controlled twist, and you can actually hear/feel the clicks as you turn the glossy stick out (kind of like twist up eyeliners).  More on that in a bit.  The product itself, despite the packaging, looks and feels exactly like a very creamy, tinted lip balm.  The shade range stays around the neutral range, with a deeper shade or two and some brighter pinks and peach.  Scroll on for swatches.

I love moisturizing, creamy lip colors, and tinted lip balms and glosses are among my favorites.  The new Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Sticks are a nifty combination of the two.  The packaging makes it look like a gloss, but inside is a twist-up balm-like product.  The twisting mechanism turns out just enough product for a few uses, and helps keep it clean as well as nonmessy.  Do not twist out more than you need like you would with lipsticks, because this does not retract, and I saw a scarily messed up tester at my local Sephora. The product is very, very creamy, and this type of packaging helps the balm holds it shape (still not sure how well it would work on a hot day).  The color payoff is like a tinted lip balm, and for someone with unevenly pigmented lips like mine, they would show up better over a lipliner.

Overall, I really liked these Marc Jacobs Gloss Sticks.  The formula feels very moisturizing, and the colors, while sheer, are easy to wear and would look good for an effortless and casual makeup look.  They can also be worn over a lipliner or a lipstick for added color as well as a moisturizing effect.  A good pick for those who like sheer, moisturizing lip products.
