Marc Jacobs beauty collection

When I went to New York in April with my boyfriend one of the first things I knew I had to purchase was some of the Marc Jacobs beauty collection which I found in Sephora (my favourite shop!). Although this beauty range was fairly new I had already seen countless bloggers and youtubers talking about the eyeshadow palette below - The Lolita 206. The colours in this palette are some of the prettiest, girly shades and work so well with one another to achieve either a matte day time look or a sparkly going out eye.

At 59 dollars this is certainly not a cheap product but I think the classic eyeshadows won't go 'out of season', each shade is really wearable and out of the seven eyeshadows there is not one colour in the palette that I dislike or don't think I will get use out of. I think the simple packaging makes the products look so luxurious and beautiful and is definitely very well made so you know there is no chance of it breaking. It also comes in a little sleeve which you can keep it in to keep the palette nice and clean.

I have swatched each shadow below so you can see what they look like on the skin, I don't think the shades have names as they are not stated on the palette anywhere. I really like how there is a selection of mattes and shimmers/glitters as so many different looks can be put together. The matte shades are very buttery against the skin and glide on without any creasing and the glitters are also very smooth, although for the price I do wish they were slightly more pigmented. It can take a while for the glitter/shimmer shades to notice on the lids, however they are very buildable so you can put layer after layer on.

Overall, I am so happy with this beautiful palette. This was a massive splurge for me and I think I will be waiting a while until I buy another Marc Jacobs palette, although 'The Dreamer' one has recently caught my eye as it is lovely shades of pinks and golds so that could be on my Christmas wishlist!

The other Marc Jacobs product I bought while in NYC was this gorgeous Shameless Powder Blush in the shade Promiscuous 214. I can't get enough of this rosy pink shade, it is one of the most pigmented blushes I have tried and completely worth the 30 dollars as I have used this so much since purchased and it looks barely touched. You need the tiniest bit of product and it comes out so bright and vibrant on the cheeks, it looks incredible even with the tiniest amount of make up on the skin as it gives you that 'naturally flushed' look.

There are 10 shades of these blushes to pick from and looking at the website I honestly want to try every single one, they are all such rich colours which would work so well with every skintone. I have swatched the shade I purchased below which shows you how pigmented the product is. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a high end blush as I don't think you could be disappointed by this product. 

Hopefully I will be able to try more of the range soon, although it is fairly pricey and there are lots of other equally as nice cheaper brands out there. Have you tired anything by the Marc Jacobs beauty collection? I would love to know your thoughts! xxx
