Even though matte lips still have Instagram in a headlock (Kylie Jenner, we're looking at you) Marc Jacobs have kicked the beauty rulebook to the kerb and taken inspiration from the ethereal with the launch of four, stunning gel-based nudes which drench lips in sheer, balmy colour – but this isn't any old unveiling.
If you have your finger on the beauty pulse, you'll know that the Sheer Gel line isn't exactly brand new, but the extra additions – Dreamgirl, May Day, Hey Stranger and In The Mood – are Marc Jacobs' answer to expanding their shade spectrum to suit even more skin-tones, and, yep, we've fallen even deeper in love.
The best part, though? This time, the shades aren't solely exclusive to the USA, meaning you can swatch to your heart's content. Here are the newbies in all their subtly glossy glory.
Best for: Medium to dark skin.
This raspberry shade lends lips a juicy veil of nourishing colour – but don't be fooled – the pigment lasts way past lunchtime. Team with cream blush and naked eyes for a fresh, pared-down vibe that'll take you well into summer.
Best for: Olive Skin
Imbued with an inviting shimmer, this gives lips a plump, pillowy look and thanks to the peachy, rosy tones, it works wonders to warm up olive skin.
Best for: Fair to medium skin.
Vibrant apricot lips anchored faces at Haute Couture Fashion Week, and this hue plays homage. Those with fair to medium-toned skin need a slight dusting of bronzer to complete the look.
Best for: Darker skin.
With claret undertones, even a single swipe of May Day will pop on darker skin. If you're not one hundred per cent sold on the brooding, vampy trend spotted at New York Fashion Week, a slick in the centre of your lips will give a subtle, just-bitten effect.
