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.

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

You inspired me to go back to this palette again- I used column 4 which had been untouched Smiley Tongue

ETA: pardon my eyebrows - I'm overdue for getting them threaded Smiley Tongue

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

Oh this is lovely too! I want to try using column four. Once you opened my eyes to the fact that the shades are grouped by column, I think it makes a lot more sense now. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

Hands down this has been my favorite purchase of the season. I used it maybe 3/4 times and the green shade is gorgeous.

Lord only knows. I got lucky because I can't for the life of me do lid shots.

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

The green and gold shades were what really sold me on it! Smiley Very Happy

 

These are gorgeous, dali. You are very talented. Which shades are you wearing in the last photo?

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

Thanks! This is the third row as well. From what I read about this release the color stories are in the vertical rows. I need to dedicate a week to playing around with this. I can't say enough how happy I am with the quality and color selection. It suits my needs perfectly.

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

You are very pretty and the pallette is absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing these images.

 

I am a sucker for Marc Jacobs coconut face primer. I have not tried his other products but this makes me excited.

I'm interested in the primer as well.  I may have to look into it.

Thank you! I've heard wonderful things about that primer. I'll need to try it soon.

Sorry to veer off topic from the palette, which is gorgeous, but not in my possession.

 

Today is my first MJ purchase ever.  I just bit the bullet and bought three lovemarc lip gels that I've had in my cart for weeks Smiley Very Happy   In Roleplay, Understudy, and Surrender Dorothy.

 

(ebates has 10% cashback and LIPKIT gets you 20 dollars off all three)

 

I'm so excited! The texture looks so lush and MJ packaging is so beauteous O_O

Oooh, congrats! I'm sure you will love them. His lipsticks are so creamy and wear well. I would love to see swatches and lip photos when you wear them! Smiley Happy

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

Just got this palette!  Mine is in secret relic mode as well.  I've only swatched it in the store and loved it.

As I come up with ideas...I'll post them.  Sometimes the MJ shadows are too metallic for me but I love these.

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

Recently purchased the MJ Bronzer Brush No. 12 and just wanted to share with those who have not yet tried it or are thinking of it, it is amazing! I used it yesterday to apply my Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder and I loved it. Today I tried it with bronzer and I loved it even more than yesterday. The brush is large but not too big where it interferes with application. I also must mention it is SO SOFT. This could be my new favorite brush. If you're thinking of splurging on it, do it Smiley Happy

You must have been reading my mind.  I saw this and have been thinking about it.  I use the Laura Mercier powder as well and need a new brush for it.  Thanks for the info!

Re: Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion

Ohhh, this brush has been on my radar for so long. It is gorgeous and I'm sure I would get good use out of it. It just hasn't been a top priority in my beauty budget yet. Smiley Wink
