In Focus: Marc Jacobs Beauty

We all know the story: Fancy designer / actress / singer gets approached by a cosmetics company who offers them a GAZILLION dollars to slap their name on a couple of beauty products, and voila! We've got a new celebrity
makeup line.


Kind of annoying, right?


Well, we got a hold of some of the original Marc Jacobs product sketches that were used to create the line (with a little design added so you can see the final product); personally I think they're adorbz, so I had to share. I love that you can tell how much input the designer himself had into the creation of the products; he wasn't slapping his name on anything (and if you think that Sephora would even allow that, I'm deeply offended *clutches pearls* Smiley Happy)!


What's your favorite product from Marc Jacobs Beauty? Show & Tell!


Lash Lifter - Gel Volume Mascara: "What if we were to create a mascara component that looks like glass - filled with shiny blackest mascara? Also, let's play a bit with the shape and proportions to make it more unexpected!"

Marc Jacobs Beauty Compacts: "My fave finish is glossy, glossy, Black! (like a high shine lacquer) My favorite piece of furniture is an art deco lacquered black coffee table - 30 coats of Black lacquer!! that's the goal here!"

Lip Lock Moisture Balm: "Logo should literally 'stand out'. See sunglasses for raised letter - more pronounced, and always tactile!"

Remedy Concealer Pen: "What would be a new way of applying a concealer?? Make an unusual tip, like this one? A material that's 'cool' to the touch - soothes tired eyes!"

Style Eye-Con No.3 - Plush Shadow: "I'd like the "edges" to be softened - to feel sensuous, tactile, while still remaining sleek!"

Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer: "Rounded, glossy, black cap! Silver band (again!)"

This is so cute. I have a bunch of Marc Jacob stuff I haven't gotten around to using, like the nail polishes and lip gloss. I do love his liquid foundation. It works so well. Both of the eyeliners are awesome too.

I LOVE the MJ nail lacquer  in LOLA which is a gorgeous true red. It's bright and sexy but but still appropriate for business.  I go 2 weeks between manicures and it holds up beautifully.  I am looking forward to trying other colors.

I wish I had more MJ products but right now I only have the mini rollerball MJ Dot and I love it Smiley Happy.

I love the little drawings on each sheet--THAT'S a personal touch!


I don't have any Marc Jacob's yet.  I forgot to check out the products last week when I was at Sephora (how could I forget?!).

Wow! Mark Jacobs certainly does have a flair for design outside of just clothes. I never noticed it until seeing this, but the little details he pointed out definitely make the products "appear" more luxe.

My fave product is by far the nail Lacquers. I LOVE Fluorescent Beige, so pretty.

I had The Vamp look done on me in store and played with the highliners Blacquer and Jazzberry. I love the long-lasting creamy formula. Gel liner in a twist up stick, very soft to apply then sets. What could be better, really?
