Pretty packages: Marc Jacobs Beauty holiday sets

mj-title

Looking for some elegant holiday sets to gift this year? Look no further than Marc Jacobs Beauty.

The Sephora-exclusive line has some gorgeous offerings this season, everything from brushes to eyeshadows to lipsticks. From a tassled clutch full of the most velvety lip colours to a walkman-sized eyeshadow palette, there are some amazing products this year from the designer beauty brand to choose from.

The About Last Night Style Eye Con 20 Eyeshadow Palette (phew, that’s a mouthful), is a giant eyeshadow palette filled with 20 shadows in a variety of finishes – metallics, mattes and sheens.

There are four rows of 20 shadows, specially curated for five different high-fashion looks. Love a more natural look? Stick with the top row. Want a dramatic smoky eye? Load up the pigments on the bottom row. Of course though you don’t have to stick with the colours in each row, you can mix and match to create pretty much any look.

If you haven’t used Marc Jacobs Beauty eyeshadows before, they are incredibly creamy and pigmented.  They are so super blendable.  This palette is very pricey (C$124 at Sephora) and there are many other palettes in there by other amazing brands that are almost half the price, but if you love luxury cosmetics, this is an amazing set to gift. This palette really is quite large (about the size of a discman), it’s also thin and includes a very large mirror.

For the lipstick fanatics out there (you can never have enough lip colours!), there is a gorgeous five-lipstick set which contain minis of some popular colours. The Up All Night Lip Creme Collection has five mini Le Marc Cremes in five staple colours.

If you haven’t tried Le Marc lipsticks, they are super buttery and long lasting. Each colour includes vibrant pigmentation that goes on with just one swipe. Colours in the set include No Angel (apricot nude), Slow Burn (creamy nude rose), Oh Miley! (strawberry spice), Scandal (intense plum), and Miss Scarlet (deep ruby), which are all a part in the permanent line.

The lipsticks come housed in a beautiful patent purple case with a black tassel. This set is stunning, both the case and the lipstick colours.  These are mini but they are a good size, especially if you’ve always wanted to try out Le Marc creme lipsticks but didn’t want to spend the C$38 for one of them.  Unfortunately I couldn’t find this set online on Sephora’s website, which probably means it’s sold out online and not coming back, but check your local store to order it.  You can also find it on Marc Jacob Beauty’s site for $49 USD.

If you are already a fan of these lipsticks, the brand has also released a new shade special for the holidays in the colour Bad Behaviour, a warm burgundy. This lipstick comes in the standard Marc Jacobs Beauty lipstick tube but in gold for some extra festiveness.

If you are looking for some awesome luxurious beauty gifts I would definitely check these out in store. The packaging – and the products – are to die for!
