Marc Jacobs Make-Up First Impressions

Marc Jacobs Make-Up First Impressions

This isn't a review post as such as I have only just plucked up the courage to test out my Marc Jacobs goodies. When it comes to expensive and/or limited edition make-up it does take me some time to actually use it, well that time has come and unsurprisingly I have an opinion (don't I always). Here are some quick thoughts until I have properly tested everything..,

Packaging
I'm not all that sold on the shape, the rounded edges of the eyeshadow palette remind me of a paint palette and not that of a high brow make-up purchase. On the other hand all of the packaging be it the lipsticks, the blushes or even the nail polishes there is no denying that it is well constructed. Sturdy, sleek and in a classic colour scheme. I rather like that the Marc Jacobs lipsticks have a magnetic enclosure which is both satisfying and of course secure.

Formulations
As you can see I purchased an eyeshadow palette, a blush and a lipstick all of which I have mixed feelings about. The lipstick is a gel formulation which slicks on with ease, is oddly cooling and moisturising. It isn't nearly as pigmented as I'd have liked but that may be due to the fact I purchased a light, nude hue (Margot)? The powder formulation are more what I expected - soft yet not prone to crumbling and again with an almost gel like texture. They glide on to the skin with ease, are a dream to blend out (both the eyeshadows and the blush) and pack a punch when it comes to pigmentation. I have yet to try the blush or eyeshadows for that matter without a primer but have so far been impressed with the wear time.

Other than swatches and full reviews is there anything you'd like me to touch on when typing up my full Marc Jacobs make-up posts?

  2. I have Marc Jacobs lipstick in Voila! and I do love it. The pigmentation is pretty good but the wear time can be better. I have read mixed reviews on the eyeshadow palette though, would be nice to read your thoughts on it.

  4. I love the shimmer in some of the eyeshadow colors and that lipstick is a very pretty color. I agree with you on the packaging of the palette, it does resemble a paint palette but it still looks chic to me for some reason. Great post!

  12. I think the Marc Jacobs products have been the best performers of late. Whilst I wouldn't buy another neutral palette, if I was going to I would get this one. It has everything you need. So pretty.

  14. I am definitely most interested in seeing some swatches of the shadows as this is what I would be most inclined to buy from the brand. Everything looks so beautiful, though.

  15. I have to agree with you on the packaging, it reminds me of my glasses case! But it's what's inside that counts :)

  16. I have the Marc Jacobs Eye Con Palettes in Enigma and in Parsienne and they're great! So many different looks from two palettes! The parsienne is definitely a cooler toned palette, highly pigmented and unique. I've been pining over the Lolita and the MJ twinkle pops...
