Marc Jacobs are said to be kicking off Pride a little earlier this year, thanks to the launch of the new Marc Jacobs Enamored With Pride Hydrating Gloss Stick Collection. If you’re already a fan of the Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Gloss Stick formula, you’re going to love this pretty five piece collection.
Marc Jacobs Enamored With Pride Hydrating Gloss Stick Collection
By launching the Marc Jacobs Enamored With Pride Hydrating Gloss Stick Collection, Marc Jacobs are donating to two charitable organisations providing vital services and support to the LGBTQ+ community; Sage USA and Le Refuge Officiel, and are using the #gratefulnothateful hashtag for the campaign.
- SAGE, the world’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBTQ+ older adults.
- Le Refuge, a French organization dedicated to preventing the isolation and suicide of LGBTQ+ youth by providing shelter and support.
The Marc Jacobs Enamored With Pride Hydrating Gloss Stick Collection consists of five beautiful new shades of their Enamored Hydrating Gloss Sticks, which Marc Jacobs describe as being ‘festive shades worth celebrating’.
You can purchase the Marc Jacobs Enamored With Pride Hydrating Gloss Stick Collection as a five-piece set for $116, which has a value of $145. Alternatively, you can purchase the Marc Jacobs Pride collection shades individually for $29.

Right now, you can purchase the Enamored With Pride collection exclusively via Marc Jacobs website, but they will launch on the Sephora website too from the 5th of June onwards. If you’ve never tried one of the Enamored Gloss Sticks, the formula is described as;
“Enamored (with Pride) Hydrating Lip Gloss Stick glides on effortlessly, indulging lips with an irresistible melt-on texture that feels ultra-plush and creamy. With the brilliant shine of a gloss, the longwear tinted formula features luxurious lip care ingredients kahai oil and vitamin E.“
The Marc Jacobs Enamored With Pride Hydrating Gloss Stick Collection consists of the following five shades;
- Pink Kiki – baby pink shimmer
- Wet Your Lips – apricot shimmer
- Coming Out – rosy mauve shimmer
- Hips Don’t Lilac – lilac shimmer
- Dancing Sheen – clear shimmer
I think it’s great that Marc Jacobs have created this special Pride collection to raise money and awareness for the two organisations, but some are saying they think the collection is a little lazy.
The outer boxes have a colourful Pride inspired design, but there’s nothing Pride themed once you remove the Gloss Stick from the box, so it’s a shame they didn’t theme the actual gloss sticks themselves.
However, I still think it’s admirable that a huge, popular brand like Marc Jacobs have created a Pride themed collection, and all five shades look super pretty.
