Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

[ Edited ]

This thread is the place to post sneak peeks of new products and special collections and to discuss all things Marc Jacobs Beauty!

 

If you are an existing fan or have questions about a particular product or want to explore the brand for the first time, feel free to join the discussion. And of course feel free to post about anything else related to MJ beauty should you be so inclined! I'm curious to know everyone's experience with the brand.

 

 

Spoiler

How I began the discussion back in December 2015:
To start off, I recently purchased the LE Style Eye Con No. 20 Holiday Palette during the VIB sale, but I have yet to use it or even swatch the colors on myself. It is currently still in "sacred relic" mode in my mind, but I'm also intimidated as it is my first ever large palette purchase. I'm not an eyeshadow expert by any means, in knowledge nor in application. I would like to begin this discussion by inviting those of you who have this palette to post eye looks that you have created with it. I need some ideas! Smiley Very Happy

Posting on this thread too - if anyone else was waiting, the Marc Jacobs Enamored with Shine set is back in stock!  Smiley Happy

 

It went out of stock super fast the first time, so I'm really happy it came back and I could grab it!  (I loved the Rah Rah promo, but the color isn't great on me - happy to try a few more. Smiley Happy  )

I just got this too! So happy it came back in stock before the VIB Rouge sale ended Smiley Happy I hope I love them! Marc Jacobs has been my obsession ever since trying their foundation...Airblush...then eyeshadow...then mascara...and now lipgloss! Now I just need to try their bronzers & highliners gel crayons. The obsession is real!

How dark/light is this new bronzer? Is it light enough for fair skin? For subtle works?

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

Hi @lyravega, I just picked it up (last one at the local store) Smiley Wink I recommend it! I think it is real pretty for fair to medium skin. And yes bonus point for matte Smiley Wink I will play with both this and Tom Ford Ultimate Bronzer Terra for the next couple days. Quality wise, I think they are both beautiful but this one wins in term of best bang for your bucks (cost half compared to Tom Ford and you get 0.8 oz vs 0.5 oz). 

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

@lyravega - I bought the new bronzer and I'm pretty fair skinned. It has no orange in it (yay!) and wasn't streaky at all on my skin. I'm using it to contour/subtle bronzing. In MJ's foundation line I'm no. 10 light Ivory in his genius gel line if that helps at all.

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

Thanks, @niki172 , that sure helps!

 

Yeah, it looks cool-ish. Or at least cooler than most bronzers out there. That is exactly why I'm looking at it. I don't think I could do any contouring with it ( I'm way too cool and icy Smiley Wink ), but that is not why I am interested in it anyway. I already have stuff I love for contouring.

 

Is it matte? Or does it have a sheen to it?

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

[ Edited ]

@lyravega - sorry it's matte. If you wanted to do a warmer contour like sun kissed you could use it for that if that makes any sense. It looks good without looking fake if that makes sense. I have that problem when finding a contour color/bronzer. It's either way too warm or too ashy looking. I literally tried with a grey contour pan once and it just didn't look natural. This looks good on the skin. Like healthy glow.

Oh no no no, no sorry! I am glad it's matte! I prefer matte!

If you're in Canada @Madeline7, keep an eye on it today! It seems to be going in and out of stock. Smiley Happy

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

I received the bronzer yesterday and am really happy w/ it! I was worried it might be too light as I had seen it compared to Benefit's Hoola Lite, and I like noticeable bronzer on my NC30-skintone. (I personally don't like super subtle bronzer, on me.) It visibly warms up and bronzes my skin, and I like that it's cooler vs. warmer toned, as I can use it for subtle contouring as well. JFYI that it works for light-medium skintones as well! 

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

I wish I had been patient and not ordered my bronzer from NM. It's on back order and not it's in stock ready to ship everywhere elseSmiley Sad

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

Hi @StephaniLynn I ordered from NM on 4/8 and I received it yesterday. If yours hasn't shipped yet you can always try to cancel the order.
