Marc Jacobs Beauty Line Quick Review + Haul

Yesterday, I finally made a trip to Sephora to check out the new Marc Jacobs Beauty line! Read on for a quick review and my mini haul :)

Marc Jacobs Beauty review

Style Eye-Con No.7 Plush Eyeshadow ($59) – These look SO cute in the sleek packaging! The colors are also gorgeous and fun. I only played around with the featured palette, The Vamp 208, which contained a variety of dramatic grays, burgundy, green and brown. I was really impressed with how creamy and highly pigmented the shadows were. They also blended out great. Very nice!



Remedy Concealer Pen ($39) – I was really looking forward to seeing this in person (it is one of Marc’s favorites) and it turned out to be awesome! The concealer works just like Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat. You push the button on top to dispense the product onto the applicator. The texture was everything I wanted in a concealer – creamy, non-drying AND pigmented. I tested out both correctors and a few of the regular shades and ended up going home with 03 Up All Night. Detailed review to come next week!

Magic Marc’er Precision Pen ($30) – This too, was recommended by Marc himself. It is a black liquid eyeliner with a felt-tip applicator and was developed in Japan to give you the shiniest, blackest black that is quick-drying and non-transferable. The color did go on really intense, just like my favorite K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner and Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner, both from Japan. Not bad!

Highliner Gel Crayon ($25) – I didn’t pay much attention to this at first (I have always preferred liquid and pot gel eyeliners). However, the sales assistant insisted that this was her favorite product out of the collection and after trying it out, I could see why. The liner glided on with such ease and the color payoff was INSANE! But what really sold me was the longevity – the color did not budge even with she tried rubbing it off with makeup remover! Now THAT’s what I call a long-wearing pencil liner!

Lovemarc Lip Gel ($30) – These too looked super cute and came in a great variety of colors, including nudes, pinks and reds. They applied semi-pigmented with a gel consistency, leaving behind a wet, glossy finish. I really wanted to pick up a few colors but the ones I wanted were already sold out. Bummer!

Overall, I’m very pleased to say that Marc Jacobs Beauty line did not disappoint! Not only does the black, glossy packaging look cool and contemporary, there are definitely some great colors with excellent pigmentation and easy-to-work-with textures. The prices are a little higher than mid-end but still affordable and worth the quality you get. You MUST check this out when you get a chance!

Marc Jacobs Beauty is available now exclusively at Sephora, select Marc Jacobs stores and Marcjacobsbeauty.com. Prices range from $18 to $78.
