Hi Gilbert,

I'm just wondering if Marc Jacobs Beauty has seen some of the complaints about your remarcable foundation line, specifically about the utter lack of shades designed for women of color? Does the brand intend to extend their shade range? If not, can you explain why?

It's been since last year that my self standing sephora hasn't stocked nuptials on the highliners. I had an issue with in the buff and I couldn't return it but basically it just crumbled up from the getgo. For someone that can't return an item but i still love the color, what do you suggest I do with the highliner??

Blackwhiskey, 

 

So sad to hear. Smiley Sad

 

Just know that the return of Highliner Gel Crayon is happening now. All stores should be fully stocked in all shades. 

 

I'd suggest trying to mix a makeup medium with a chunk of your highliner . Mix the two with a brush and apply to lash line or even eye lid as an eyeshadow. 

 

 

Probably the best way to save Buff. 

 

Hope that helps,

Hi claaus, 

 

Have you tried Brow Wow? It comes in 5 shades and it's a retractable brow pencil that's waterproof. 

 

Try sketching it onto your brows with soft strokes for a beautiful finish.

Cabaret is one of my favorite lipsticks ever. Any chances it will make a return?

Hi notcreative, 

 

Not in the works as of now but you never know. 

 

Have you explored Le Marc Lip Creme or New Nudes? 

 

MJB is also launching 5 new shades this summer.

Hi Gilbert,

can you suggest a Marc Jacobs product that would stop my eye makeup from smudging to way below my eyes?

 

many thanks!

Hi gerrydmcg! I'd recommend the Highliner Gel Eye Crayon, it's a waterproof gel eye crayon and it won't smudge below your eyes! X, G

Great! Thank you!!!

Re: Live Chat with Gilbert Soliz for Marc Jacobs Beauty

I love make up but I almost gave up on mascaras because literally any mascara, I use, causes much irritations to my eyes. I even thought that mascaras were not for me, that I just couldn't use them at all.

But I gave one more chance to one more mascara, the last time, I thought, and maybe...that would be the winner.

And to my very pleasant surprise, I finally found the one and only! It's Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara! I am so, so glad! It didn't cause me any irritations and was so soft on my eye lashes. And what a volume! With words I cannot describe that! Stunning, wonderful, magnificent!!!
I don't know what secret that amazing mascara has, but it is the ONE, I had been looking for about 15 years! My searches are over! Finally!
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Marc Jacobs and his team for creating such a wonderful mascara. Velvet Noir Major Volume is my dream which came true!

My eye makeup always smudges way under the eyes - can you recommend a product in the Marc Jacobs range that could minimise this? 

 

Thanks so much!
