I am perilously close to having a Marc Jacobs Beauty addiction. When it first launched I thought, “Oh great. Another fancy person/designer/tv star/whatever has tossed licensed their brand and slapped it on to what will likely be a mediocre line of beauty products”. I’m not afraid to eat those words *crunch crunch* and admit I was wrong. Everything about MJ Beauty is gorgeous and perfect, from the packaging to the product.
Right now, I am loving the warm pink nude shades of the Sheer Lust for Lacquer lip gloss in Overprotected. The formula is perfection. Not sticky, with a slight minty tingle, and a perfect distribution of sheer colour. At $34 CAN they are definitely at the higher end of the makeup spectrum cost-wise, but the quality is comparable to Dior, Chanel or any of the other lines that take my money.
I’ve been eyeing his Enamoured High Shine Nail Polish in Flourescent Beige over at My Lucite Dreams and finally made it mine. It’s a super pretty twist on a pink nude, with added shimmer. It’s sort of everything I wanted Essie Demure Vixen to be. Less sheer, with more shimmer pay off. I used three coats here, but sort of think I might have preferred it with two. You know how I like a slightly sheer nail polish….Check out the stunning shimmer – kind of hard to capture, but it’s there! At $22 CAN again, it’s not cheap. But the wear is fantastic, and the formula is fantastic and applies like a dream.
These colours are just so ME. It’s like Marc and I are best friends, and he really wanted to call these Jane’s Perfect Lip Gloss & Nail Polish Pair. Right?
I get my Marc Jacobs Beauty at Sephora.
