My Love Affair with Marc Jacobs Beauty

Hello Everyone! 



I wanted to share with you all my love affair with Marc Jacobs Beauty.. 

As a whole, I have been very impressed with everything I have tried thus far from the brand. It is all very pigmented, long wearing and the shade range is awesome. I will break it all down below: 

Marc Jacobs Bold Blushes are my newest obsessions. I purchased these about a week ago and I have used them on a few clients. These two shades are absolutely beautiful. Reckless (left) is a rosy pink more on the mauve side. Obsessed (right) is a brighter pinky coral shade. They are both pigmented and long wearing. They add the nicest "flush" with out it looking like you swiped on some blush.  I will definitely be picking up a few more shades. ($30.00 purchased at Sephora

Marc Jacobs The Lolita Eye Shadow Palette is pretty much perfection. I did a very detailed blog post here so I won't go into to much detail but the shades are pigmented, long wearing and I love the looks you can create with this palette. ($59.00 purchased at Sephora

Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon has been my go to pencil liner. I have Blacquer 42 and Brown (out) 54. They are both amazing long wearing. They pretty much tie the NARS larger than life long wear eye liners for staying power. The one thing that I love about these liners compared to NARS is that you have a few seconds to really smudge them out before they set. So you can wear them like normal liners or smudge them out really nice for a smokey look. ($25.00 purchased at Sephora

Marc Jacobs Magic Marc'er Precision Pen Waterproof is the bomb.com. It is similar to the Urban Decay 24/7 liquid liner or Kat Von D tattoo liner in that it lasts forever. It is actually hard to get off at the end of the day. Its blacker than black and amazing. It was designed based on a calligraphy pen and it can make very thin lines or thicker lines depending on how you use it. ($30.00 purchased at Sephora)

Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Cover Concealer is a medium to full coverage under eye concealer. I do not believe it is advertised as an under eye concealer but it has a slight peachy tint to it that helps to cancel out dark under eye circles. This shade (awake 1) is a perfect match for my skin tone and I really enjoy the coverage it gives. My only complaint is that I wish it lasted a little bit longer on my skin. I get about a 6 hour wear out of this concealer.  ($32.00 purchased at Sephora)

Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in 152 Bark! is one of my favorite nail colors at the moment. This rich dark brown is lovely with the shiny finish. I believe this shade is limited edition and when I saw it in the store I just had to try it. I am so happy with this product. I have been wearing this shade for 3 days with no top coat and it hasn't chipped at all. I had heard great things about this polish and I really believe it lives up to the hype. I know it is expensive for a nail polish but if you ever feel like treating yourself I would go and try one of the 27 shades he has to offer.   ($18.00 purchased at Sephora)

I truly haven't been disappointed in any of the products I have purchased from this brand. I know I need to branch out and try some of the lip products but for some reason lip products are always the last items I try from brands. Below are some swatches of the blushes and gel liners. 


I hope you found this post helpful! Let me know some of your favorite products from Marc Jacobs.
