I’ve been most curious about trying out Marc Jacobs products especially after my great experience with the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon ($31, available here). However, just like anyone else out there with an overwhelming collection that needs to be finished first, I haven’t been able to purchase anything from his beauty collection.
During my trip to New York, I wanted to purchase a designer cardholder wallet that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. A Coach one would have costed me USD$50 and I wasn’t keen to spend that kind of money on a tiny wallet that carries only 3-4 cards at a time. I wasn’t too keen about paying the ridiculous exchange rate anyhow.
I was so thrilled when I saw the Marc Jacobs The Nude(ist) Kit ($35, available here) appears to be the perfect solution – providing me with the fashion accessory I had been wanting and two new beauty mini’s to play around with!
It seems so silly that my favourite product in the entire range is the pochette, but taking out the mirror, I’ve turned this into my little cardholder wallet that can easily fit 4-5 cards easily and comfortably. Plus the nude pochette looks expensive (without actually costing that price tag!) and takes up very little space as it is meant to do! The “Marc Jacobs” embossed on the front of the pochette makes it look like something from Saks.
The collection includes a sample-size of the new Marc Jacobs Nude Sheer Lip Gel ($38 for 1.0g, available here) and the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Colour in Blackquer ($31 for 0.37g, available here). I’ve had a great experience with the highliner, though I have yet to try this colour (Blackquer).
I have yet to try any Marc Jacobs Beauty lip products and the new sheer lip product has so far been a great introduction to the brand! Despite the name, I actually find this lip colour to have more pigment and comes off very close to the Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Lipstick in N4 Pink Beige. The lip product stays on really well and the dusty-rose colour looks incredibly flattering on many skintones. The formula stays on the lip and doesn’t feel too heavy. It sits comfortably and feels mostly like a tinted lip balm.
Overall, this kit has been a great introduction to the brand. As much as I like the products, the pochette was the best bit of all the products included. For the price ($35) and costing so much less than the full-size of both products makes it a great addition to anyone looking to try new Marc Jacobs beauty products.
Now it’s your turn! Have you tried any Marc Jacobs Beauty products? What do you think I should purchase and try out next? As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts! Share with me comment section or through Twitter or Instagram!
