When it comes to lippies I’m completely obsessed! Like, if there was a raging fire my oversized Hello Kitty mugs filled with my MAC lipsticks would be on my “to grab” list. It’s that serious! It’s extremely rare for me to find a lippie I don’t love so I can’t even begin to explain how disappointed I was the first time I tried this lipstick. I’m such a huge fan of Marc Jacobs’ perfume line so I was over the moon when I heard he was releasing a makeup line. Unfortunately, Dizzy Spell Lip Gel just didn’t live up to my expectations. Take a look!
The Lip Gels come in the most lovely packaging! It’s very simple yet elegant. So Marc Jacobs! Dizzy Spell is housed in a shiny silver tube with shiny, black plastic accents. The packaging is rather bulky but it’s very lightweight and feels pretty good in the hand. It also features a nice magnetic closure that’s actually pretty functional and durable. I can easily toss it into the messiest of bags without worrying about the top coming off.
Unfortunately, the packaging is perhaps the best thing about this lipstick. Dizzy Spell is a pale, milky peachy coral shade with a light vanilla scent and satin finish. The color is beautiful but the formula does it no justice! It’s sheer, very slippery and settles into every crack and crevice possible. Even after exfoliating the application was still streaky and unforgiving on my lips. Plus, I would get lines whenever I pressed my lips together because it’s so slippery. The wear is even worse than the application! Dizzy Spell is incredibly drying and only lasts for around 2-3 hours. It is by far the worst lipstick I have ever tried! Not only am I disappointed because I just adore Marc Jacobs but I’m also saddened by the $30 price tag. For the luxury price this should have been a luxury lipstick and it’s just not. Not even close! Unless you have super perfectly smooth unicorn lips that never crack or peel Dizzy Spell is a dud. I do not recommend!
