Marc Jacobs Beauty Lip Gel in Showstopper

Marc Jacobs Beauty Lip Gel in Showstopper is described as classic red.

This is what Sephora says:

What it is:

A color-saturated, long-wearing, gellified lipstick with a sleek shine finish. 

What it does:
Fall in love with Marc’s irresistible, gellified lipstick. Full of pure pigment, this long-wearing lipstick has an irresistibly touchable texture. Unlike traditional waxy lipsticks, Lovemarc’s cutting-edge, gellified formula delivers the utmost in creaminess, comfort, and color payoff. An infusion of monoi butter—a velvety cream made from the tropical tiare flower—provides intense hydration, while myrrh extract works to reduce the signs of aging, and an innovative 3-D plumping agent adds gentle volume. The vivid shades are all inspired by Marc’s favorite movies. 

I personally own two lip gels from Marc Jacobs and while I do like the ones I have, I probably would not buy anymore.

The formula is nice but I don't think it is anything special and it does not stand out from any  other medium to high end lipsticks.I don't see any lip plumping effects like it claims either.

Retail is $30.00 , which is a bit high in my opinion but you are clearly paying for the name.

Luckily I bought mine when Sephora was having their VIB sale so I got 20% off.

I do own other items from his line and I like them a lot more.
