In another merging of the fashion and beauty worlds, designer Marc Jacobs has created and launched an ambitious new beauty line. As with his fashion, Marc breaks the rules and inspires women to push the boundaries and create their own style. This is his first-ever cosmetics collection through a partnership with Sephora. Intrigued? Read on for more…
The Marc Jacobs Beauty Collection is broken into four ranges:
- Smart Complexion, which includes Genius Gel foundation, Remedy concealer pen and Perfection Powder Foundation.
- Blacquer, products invented for the deepest, shiniest black including Magic Marc’er (a precision pen eyeliner), lash lifting mascara and Highliner Gel Crayon.
- Hi-Per Color, made up of the color cosmetics including Style Eye-Con palettes, Shameless Bold Blush, Lust for Lacquer lip vinyl, Lovemarc lip gel, Omega Bronze Perfect Tan and Enamoured hi-shine nail lacquer.
- Boy Tested, Girl Approved, which are Marc’s personal favorites. These include Lip Lock Moisture Balm, Brow Tamer Grooming Gel and Remedy Concealer Pen.
Some of the Marc Jacobs Beauty products that caught my eye include:
Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Eye Shadow in 202 The Tease, gorgeous plums! $59
Style Eye-Con No. 3 Plush Eye Shadow in The Mod, $42
Enamoured Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in 132 Blue Velvet, $18
Shameless Bold Blush in 206 Reckless, $30
LoveMarc Lip Gel in 132 Saboteur, $30
Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl in Kissability, $28
I checked out the Marc Jacobs Beauty Collection in Sephora and really liked what I saw. What impressed me most is the amount of color saturation and pigmentation in the products. The prices are actually less than I expected. The quality is on par with any department store/prestige cosmetic line.
I bought the Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Petra because I just couldn’t walk away from it! I had planned to pick up Blue Velvet, but when I laid eyes on Petra, it was over. A beautiful taupe-gray glitter, one coat is all I needed to get excellent coverage and color-payoff. And can we talk about the bottle? I know…it shouldn’t matter, but I love a great bottle and this one feels smooth, rounded and weighty in your hand—love it. I will be back for more of these nail polishes, for sure.
I’m interested in knowing what you think…are you planning on buying any pieces in the Marc Jacobs Beauty Collection?
