Marc Jacobs is a famous fashion designer but he is also a pretty well known figure in the beauty world. For years he’s been launching his fragrances with Daisy being the most popular one. About a year ago he launched his first makeup line that’s available exclusively at Sephora stores. The line ranges from foundations, concealers, powders, blushes to eyeshadows, eyeliners, lipsticks and lipglosses. Everything about those products screams luxury- from beautiful packaging to unique formulas and rich pigmentation.
The first one is an eyeshadow palette Style Eye-Con No.7 in The Siren 210. The paltte itself looks a bit intimidating at first. Captured in a luxurious looking white case, it houses 7 different colored eyeshadows. At a first glance, the colors don’t go together at all. However, the more I have been playing with this palette, the more I love it and the more gorgeous color combinations I have come up with. The quality of the shadows is a dream to work with. They are all very pigmented, smooth and buttery, they apply very easily, creating no fallout at all. The price of the palette might cause a but of a cringe (being $59), and I do feel like, to some extent, you’re paying for the name brand.I still feel like it was a great purchase though and I can see myself picking up another Marc Jacobs eyeshadow palette in the future.
The second product that I picked up is a Highliner Gel Eye Crayon (Luna)tic 64, which is a pale shimmery lavender. Normally eyeliners are a kind of product that hardly ever get me excited and I don’t own a lot of them. This one is different though mostly due to its gel consistency. It glides easily on the eyelid, provides good pigmentation in just one stroke. And the color? It’s simply stunning. Depending on the light it might look like lavender or griege but it has prominent shimmer that instantly brightens up your eye. My favorite way to incorporate it into my makeup look is by applying it to my lower lashline and pairing it with the Marc Jacobs The Siren palette. The eyeliner retails for $25.
What do you think of these gems? Anything that caught your attention? Do you like splurging on high end makeup or do you think it’s not worth the money? Would you like to see a few different looks I created using the palette? Please, let me know!
