So… I drafted this about sometime last week while I was coughing and sneezing my brains out, I’m better now but here’s a sentiment of how I felt about a week ago, along with some gorgeous holiday promo pics, heh!
It seems I’ve caught the flu bug that’s been circulating awhile of late so my mind’s in a bit of a haze and I’m close to sputtering nonsensical rambles so… with that let me take this time to put up a generic press post about some Holiday pieces from Marc Jacobs!
A brand still relatively new to us – like a little baby toddling about our shores! – it’s highly exciting to see what they will put out for their very first Holiday here and I guess I can say that Marc Jacobs doesn’t disappoint.
Of course, as expected, you should have a few dollars ready when you’re spying any of these but if anything, Marc Jacobs’ makeup line is almost always on point in color and also texture / finish so you can expect to get your money’s worth!
Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer and Bleu 5-piece Eye Essentials Collection
Discover the magic of midnight with Marc’s 5-piece eye essentials collection featuring three best-selling Marc Jacobs beauty products in a collectible makeup bag designed by Marc Jacobs. The decadent collection includes:
- Magic Marc’er in Blacquer
- O!Mega Lash Mascara in Blacquer
- Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Th(ink)
Marc designed this ultra-covetable clutch to reflect his color-blocked vision of Paris’ night sky. A chic and portable mirror is tucked into the bag’s sleeve for effortless touch-ups.
And somehow because promo visuals don’t do this amazing box justice, here’s a shot of it in all of its grandeur.
Kiss Pop Collector’s Edition
A collection of all nine irresistible Kiss Pop Lip Color Sticks presented in a limited-edition case. The long-wearing, demi-matte shades are Marc’s spin on the color pencil and range from first-date rose to take-me-home red, all encased in a luxurious, collectable, lacquered jewelry box. The coveted lip collector’s edition is only available during the holiday season and makes the perfect gift for the luxury enthusiast. The custom box was designed exclusively to fit on top of Marc’s 13-piece Lovemarc Lip Gel collection, which debuted during Holiday 2013. Shades include:
- pow! – peony pink
- crush – tangerine red
- heartbreaker – pink coral
- pop – bright berry red
- wham – coral rose
- pop rock – strawberry red
- poparazzi – electric rose
- smack – burgundy berry
- headliner – berry sangria
La Coquette 4-piece Favorites Collection
Line and shine to create a classic parisienne look with this set of Marc’s most covetable items, including the ultimate black liner for dramatic eyes, the perfect nude nail, and a shimmering pink pout. The addition of a signature mirror and a Marc Jacobs-designed pochette ensure you’ll be ready for a night of magic. This exclusive set contains:
- Lip Vinyl in Kissability
- Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Madame
- Magic Marc’er in Blacquer
- Mirror Pochette (exclusive with this set)
The Sky-Liner 7-piece Petites Highliner Collection
Let eyes take flight with a seven-piece set of petite Highliner Gel Eye Crayons. Marc picked five best-selling shades of his incredibly innovative, first-ever waterproof gel liner crayons and added two more exclusive shades, including the signature color of the season, Midnight in Paris, for Holiday 2014. This limited edition set is housed in a keepsake case that will live in your collection long after the pencils are enjoyed. Shades include:
- o(vert) – forest green
- brown(out) – brown with shimmer
- sunset – bronze with shimmer
- midnight in paris – navy noir shimmer
- th(ink) – deep navy
- plum(age) – vivid purple
- blacquer – black
That wraps up the holiday line-up from Marc Jacobs, coming to us at Sephora. From what I understand, a lot of the Marc Jacobs holiday pieces are fairly exclusive to Sephora ION and… to date I believe that the full Marc Jacobs line up is still mainly available at Sephora ION, right am I?
Eitherways, pop by Sephora ION – the HQ of all Sephoras it seems – and you can’t go wrong!
If you ask me… I think the Kiss Pop Collectors Set is to die for but at a pricetag of S$350, it does seem like a huge splurge even though when averaged out, it sounds a whole lot more reasonable at about S$38 a Pop (forreal pop here) and you get the lacquered box thrown in too.
Pretty good deal, yes? Ha!
And the Sky-Liner set is another really pretty and nice piece worth checking out too as these pencils swatched really nicely on and if you have ever wanted to get your hands on some of their Eye Crayons, this is the best time / way to!
So tell me, are you eyeing any pieces from Marc Jacobs’s Holiday 2014 collection?
Marc Jacobs Holiday collection will launch 6 November 2014 (mainly) at Sephora ION.
