Marc Jacobs Beauty just launched a super cute limited edition set of minis called Cream and Sugar Nude Lip Trio ($25) exclusive to Sephora. The three-piece set features mini sizes of MJB’s award-winning lip gloss and long-wear lipstick and liner – all in the brand new shade Cream and Sugar, a peachy-rose nude that was inspired by the cult favorite shade, Sugar Sugar. I love most of the mini sets MJB releases but this one in particular I am completely obsessed with and am so excited to have swatches for you here today!
The set includes:
- 0.01 oz/ 0.3 g Petite (P)outliner Longwear Lip Pencil in Cream and Sugar
- 0.05 oz/ 1.7 g Petite Le Marc Lip Crème in Cream and Sugar
- 0.05 oz/ 1.7 mL Petite Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer in Cream and Sugar
First of, the colors are to die for! This is absolutely the most perfect nude lip trio with each shade complementing the other very nicely. I hope this means we can expect these shades, or just new colors in general, soon. The (P)outliner Lip Pencil has a gel-based formula with opaque coverage and a matte finish. Formulated with collagen to help fill in lines and prevent bleeding, the liner applies smoothly and lasts all day. The Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick is a full coverage lipstick that has a rich and creamy texture with long-lasting wear. The Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer formula is one of my personal favorites as far as glosses are concerned. This one in particular is really pretty with a shimmer veil and sheer finish. It has a comfortably cushiony feel with smooth texture.
Swatched on the arm

Swatched on the lips. For skin tone reference, I am not wearing any foundation and am completely barefaced here. My skin tone is medium with pink undertones.
Bottom line I’m utterly in love with the Cream and Sugar Lip Trio. This is neutral perfection to me and I am praying to the beauty gods that respective full sizes will follow soon because I need these in my life. The formula on all three is so good. I know not everyone has a deep love for neutral lips like me but I do think there’s quite a bit to fawn over with these colors.
You can find the Marc Jacobs Beauty Cream and Sugar Nude Lip Trio now exclusively at Sephora for limited time only.
Update 2/4/18: Marc Jacobs has launched individual full sizes of the Cream & Sugar shades on their official website!
