Glitter & glam: Sparkly things from Marc Jacobs Beauty

Anyone else feel kinda sad once Christmas is over?

Although it’s still Hanukkah, once December 25 is past us, I always feel so down since the Christmas season is so pretty. I love the lights, the music, the cheer, even the abundance of people doesn’t bother me too much (unless you’re in New York City and hitting up Fifth Avenue… way too many people). Thankfully the holidays aren’t completely over since now we have New Years to look forward to.

The holidays in general – pretty much all of December – are full of sparkle and shine, and whether you’re wearing some glitter on your eye, lips, or body, there is no shortage of great options out there. I have already chatted a bit about what Marc Jacobs Beauty offered for the holiday season and now that we are one day past Boxing Day, you can find all the items on sale!

For the eyes, the Marc Jacobs Beauty See-Quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow (on sale for C$22) is a great option for adding glitter on the eyes. Open up the pot to find a pressed glitter shadow that is available in a few different shades.

This limited-edition loose eyeshadow gives you bold pigment with major sparkle. Available in six shades, open up the pot (housed with a grey sparkly lid) to reveal a demi-pressed pigment that allows you to really pack on the glitter for either a bold or subtle look.

I received a couple of these last year as well, and although the gold shade (Star Dust) is my favourite, the shades they sent me this year (Pop Rox and Glitter Rock) are super holiday appropriate as well and really helps to up the ante on any festive look.

For the lips, the Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Lip Hi-Shine Lip Gloss (on sale for C$22) is a great way to jazz up any lip look. These are part of their regular line, however, for the holidays they have come out with some limited-edition shades that are in special packaging.

Available in four different shades, this lip gloss gives you a sheer wash of colour and high shine thanks to its Triple Shine Complex, which blends together high-performance ingredients to give you a comfortable wear and shine, similar to 30 coats of lacquer.

I received two shades in this, Atomic (rose with pink glitter) and To The Moon (cool pink with blue glitter), and absolutely love To The Moon.  I love layering this gloss over a matte liquid lipstick to jazz up any shade and add a glossy finish over top. Also, I want to note that compared to other glosses, these aren’t too overly sticky and find them to be a comfortable wear.

Finally, to add a little shine to complement your makeup look, take a look at their O!Mega Glaze All-Over Foil Luminizer, which is available in two shades — Showstopper, a soft peachy pink; and Jet Girl, a golden copper. This is also available in their special 2019 holiday packaging and is a giant highlighter designed to give your skin instant reflective radiance.

The formula contains micro-fine, jet-milled powder that applies effortlessly on the skin, giving you a glow that will have people turning heads.  You can use this for both face and body (try applying it on the shoulders and collarbone for a pretty effect).

This highlighter retails for C$56, but is currently on sale on Sephora’s site for C$39, so if you’re thinking about gifting it or getting it, definitely hop on it!

I have previously chatted about all these Marc Jacobs Beauty items in previous posts, but if you are on the fence about getting them, you might be able to find them still in stores.  They are all on sale right now for some amazing prices and I highly recommend looking into adding them in your makeup collection, especially since New Years is on the horizon.

Did you get any Marc Jacobs Beauty holiday items this season? Picking up any?
