HAUL | MARC JACOBS

 

Marc Jacobs Shameless Bold Blush in 208 Provocative | Marc Jacob Lovemarc Lip Gel in 104 Dizzy Spell

Marc Jacobs Shameless Bold Blush in 208 Provocative:
This small packaged blush is perfect inside your makeup bag without taking up to much space. The colour 208 Provocative is a dark peach blush which looks mega bold in the pan but once applied on to the checks it gives a great colour to your skin by warming up your complexion that last all day long. The gold shimmers in the blush  gives you a pretty glow to you cheeks without having to apply highlighter. 

Marc Jacob Lovemarc Lip Gel in 104 Dizzy Spell
The Lovemac lip gel collection is a great way to wear lipstick everyday. It has a subtle sweet vanilla scent which I really like. I love peach tone makeup and the 104 Dizzy Spell is a perfect warm peach pink gellified lipstick. The gel formula gives you glossy looking lips and unlike some lipsticks it doesn't sink into your creases. The formula is pigmented, hydrating and comfortable to wear and don't dry out my lips therefore I don't feel the need to apply lip balm/conditioner underneath of this lipstick.
The only downfall is that I don't find it very long wearing and easily transferable and after food and drinks you would definitely need to retouch up, which isn't a problem for me (but who doesn't touch up their lippy after eating?).  perfect for everyday wear. Love.

The Marc Jacob Beauty Collection is sold exclusively at Sephora only.  Currently the range of makeup is pretty small but you will definitely find something that suits to your likings. I picked up two products at Sephora and so far i've been loving it and can't wait to pick up a few other colours from the range.

HAUL | NARS FINAL CUT COLLECTION 2014

The Nars Final Cut Collection - new edge of pink is the perfect combo for this spring floral prints and cut dresses.


The collection includes 4 blushes and matching satin lip pencils, and a illuminator...

I picked up the Final Cut blush from the collection as I really like coral colours on my cheeks and on the lips I picked up the satin lip pencil in Descanso which is a pinky mauve; a my lips but better colour.

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso | NARS Blush in Final Cut

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso:
The Satin Lip Pencil has a mild amaretto scent. On my lips its transfers into a pinky mauve colour as my lips are quite pigmented. The pencil its self  is creamy and pigmented.
If you have dry lips make sure to exfoliate before applying it on your lips as it will make it prominent. For me the downfall of the lip pencil is that you have to sharpen it once its goes blunt, so it can be wasteful and unhygenic but with so many pretty colour selection from the permanent line and the occasion limited editions its hard to resist.

NARS Blush in Final Cut:
It matte finish and on the cheeks is turns into a pinky peach tone. From swatching the blush with my finger, it is very smooth but the pigmentation was quiet sheer. However using a brush to pick up the product the blush is very pigmented so be sure you use a light hand because you can definitely over blush with this!
