I recently dropped by my local Marc Jacobs store to get a closer look at some of its featured cosmetic products, and okay… I maaay have walked away with a few new favorite products.
If you watch my YouTube videos at all, you know I have a slight obsession with Marc Jacobs products. Everything from MJB brushes to blushes fills my cosmetic collection, and I almost always find myself reaching for the same glossy black and silver packaging when applying my makeup day to day.
I thought these products would round out my collection nicely. Take a look.
Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Laquer in “Peep” / $18 USD
I love the color of this. It’s this pastel, baby pink that really pops against my fair-golden skin. What I love about these more neutral colors is that if they chip after wear, it’s less noticeable than had I painted on a bright, cherry red. I will say that I found the formula was a bit thick, so if you pick this up, you’ll definitely want to work in super thin layers to keep it from streaking.
And can we talk about this packaging already?! All Marc Jacobs Beauty products have this luxurious, weighty, “expensive”-feeling packaging. I can’t but feel bougie when I use these products.
Again with the sexy packaging! These are my new favorite lipsticks. Out of every lip product I currently own, I reach for these the most! You’ll almost never find me out and about without one of these perfect tubes in my purse.
On a day to day basis, I like to wear very neutral, pretty but natural looks that almost look as if I’m not wearing any makeup at all. These Marc Jacobs lipsticks are perfect for that. The lipsticks from MJB with the black tubes were super pigmented, but not quite what I was looking for. I immediately gravitated toward these because of their lovely, creamy, sheer color pay-off in pretty much every flattering nude shade known to man.
The one thing I love about these lipsticks (as I do about most high-end lipsticks I own) is that they close with a magnetic “snap”. With some of my cheaper lipsticks, I find that the caps always pop off in my makeup bag or purse, and my lipstick tubes end up destroying the inside of my cosmetic bags. I never seem to have that problem with these! And yes, I’ve lugged these gorgeous beauties around everywhere.
If I had to choose between buying two Marc Jacobs Beauty nail polishes at $18 a pop or just one lipstick at $30, I’d definitely go with the lipstick. I just love these shades! I’m sure there are other brands that carry sheer, creamy lip colors in hydrating formulas, but there’s just something about the MJB tubes that keep me coming back for more.
Do you have any new favorite lip colors or polishes you love? Have anything you can recommend for me? Drop me a comment and let me know!
