Marc Jacobs Gel Eye Crayon and Lip Creme Review

Wednesday, August 10, 2016


Marc Jacobs is one brand that I wouldn't have purchased with my hard earned moolah, but then I experienced a slice of luxury when Sephora decided to gift Beauty Insiders with Marc Jacobs products as 2016 Birthday Gift.

In February, my friend got hold of Fresh Soy/Rose Face Mask as my Birthday Gift  from the Sephora LA store (my friend had gone to Sephora to return a foundation). When I made another purchase online, I was allowed to select the Marc Jacobs set as my second gift. So now, I have both the birthday sets :p

Packaging


The birthday set comes in a cute box. The ingredient list (incomplete) is printed on the side of the box. Forcomprehensive list, visit Marc Jacobs Website.



Marc Jacobs Highlighter Gel Eye Crayon in Blancquer l $25 (INR 1750)



Travel size ( 0.37 g ) silver twist up eye pencil. Absolutely love this, the eye pencil is creamy, jet black and long wearing. On my waterline, it stayed for 9 hours (with minor wear and tear), which is a big deal considering I have very watery eyes. The product is very creamy, and so it did transfer onto my hooded lids, but once set, the product is budge-proof. Also, the tip doesn't stay sharp (blame the creaminess) and hence difficult to wing it!



As much as I love the pencil, I am still torn over the price of the full-size product. It is a battle between my heart and my purse and sadly, I wouldn't be re-purchasing the full-size product.


Le Marc Lip Creme in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang l $30 (INR 2100)


Travel size product (1 g) with all black and silver packaging. The shade name is written on the bottom of the tube. The color itself is such a pretty muted pink. Kudos to Sephora for picking a universal shade suitable for all races, all skin tones. The lipstick is very creamy, long wearing and stays put for 4 hours before starting to crust around the inner rims of the lip. I might (read, MIGHT) purchase a full size of this lipstick because the shade is so every-day appropriate and I love the formula. The full size is going to hurt my poor purse badly.

Swatches


I am very happy with the gift for the year 2016. Beauty Insiders can select one of the two available gift sets as a birthday present from Sephora (online and in-store) during your birthday month.
