Back in August, I placed an order on Sephora.com with a singular purpose – to get my hands on the newly launched Marc Jacobs beauty line. This is the first time the designer has forayed into the beauty world and has come up with a very quirky tagline, “Boy Tested. Girl Approved.” And I very much agree with it!
When the line launched in the US, I decided to scan a few blogs and make an order that would give me a flavor of the brand:
- the highly-rated liquid eyeliner – Magic Marc’er Precision Pen in Black
- pencil eyeliner – Highliner Gel Crayon in Th (Ink)
- nail polish – Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Petra
- lipstick – Lovemarc Lip Gel in Seduce Me
- lip gloss – Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl in Sweet Escape
And after several weeks of testing out the brand, I can say it hasn’t disappointed. The liquid eyeliner ‘Magic Marc’er Precision Pen’ is a staple and I can’t wait for these to be produced in multiple colors. The nail polishes also come in a variety of highly pigmented and unique shades and I couldn’t find a dupe for Petra in my stash. However, the stand-out product for me so far has to be the lipstick that Marc Jacobs calls Lip Gel. The formula is rich, pigmented and feels like a blend of lipstick and lip gloss upon application and turns into a long-wearing stain over the day.
It’s great to see Sephora UAE launching the Marc Jacobs Beauty line in Dubai very soon after the official US launch and I can’t wait to go check out the remaining parts of the collection. If you pick up any items, do share them in the comments below but hurry as the collection sold out within days in the US!
Marc Jacobs Beauty will be on sale exclusively at Sephora in Dubai Mall on November 16th.
