Happy Monday lovelies!
My first lip combo of 2020 is a stunning one my friends, so brace yourselves! Even though it’s not so much a combo as it is a single lip product, it is WAY too beautiful not to share with the world.
Like many of you, glosses for me kind of lost their appeal a couple years back. I don’t know what it was that made them especially undesirable (I mean, besides the fact that your hair would get stuck in it as soon as you went outside), but with the introduction of the FENTY Gloss Bomb glosses, the Buxom plumping lip cream glosses + this next product, my lip gloss addiction was thrown into high gear.
The Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer glosses are in a league of their own, and have quickly become a cult classic among beauty lovers alike. They’re mint scented, super pigmented, comfortable & definitely not sticky on the lips. What’s even better is that they’re long lasting + actually leave the lips looking SUPER plump and juicy. These glosses have quite the staying power & fade down perfectly, leaving a beautiful wash of color on the lips.
My first experience with the Enamored Hi-Shine glosses was shortly after they launched a couple years back and in true Ashley fashion, I went straight to “Sugar Sugar”…which is of course, the nude of all nudes (seriously look this one up, it’s stunning). According to Sephora.ca, there are a total of 33 of these Enamored Hi-Shine glosses to choose from with shades ranging from nude (like “Sugar Sugar”) to silver (“Silver Surf”) and even purple (“Temp Me”). There is truly a shade for everyone!
So, here’s what you need to know:
> They retail for $38 CAD (although Sephora.ca does seem to have a few shades on sale that might be worth checking out)
> These glosses are available in two finishes, shimmer or high shine
> They have a 4.5/5 rating on Sephora.ca with a total of 1063 reviews
> They’re formulated without parabens, sulfates or phthalates
> The shade names are inspired by Marc Jacob’s favorite music
> These glosses are a two-time Allure Best of Beauty award winner
> AND most importantly, they’re cruelty-free!

About a year or so after the launch of these Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer glosses, Marc Jacobs came out with the Enamored Hydrating Lip Gloss Sticks. There are only 8 shades in the stick version and in all honesty, I’m not a fan. When I heard that “Sugar Sugar” was available in stick form, of course I rushed out and purchased it. Annnnnd, I’ll take the gloss any day over these sticks.
Annnyways, there you have it friends, another lip combo!
Among about a dozen other “resolutions” I have for 2020 (more on that in a future post), this is going to be the year of wearing ALL of the lip colors… #steppingoutsideofmycomfortzone haha
Hope you have an amazing week!
Thanks so much for stopping by & until next time friends,
