Nothing screams holidays more than a little sparkle and shine. Thankfully, Marc Jacobs Beauty got the memo this season, since that’s what their holiday collection is all about.
Marc Jacobs Beauty’s holiday collection is all about gold glam, whether it’s giving you a vacation-worthy bronze look, or adding a little sparkle to the lips and eyes. This brand is one of my favourites to look out for when it comes to the holidays since there are so many luxurious goodies they come out with every year.
One of my absolute favourite items (and something I’ve already used so many times for my holiday looks) is the See-Quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow (C$35). Available in six shades, these are loose eyeshadows that add a little sparkle to your eyes. I received the colours Glamethyst, a sparkling purple, and Gleam Girl, a champagne beige. These come housed in a pot with a stopper on it to pack the eyeshadow down since it is loose. Load up your brush and wash these on your lids to create the most beautiful sparkle. Since the formula is quite versatile, you can either add a little or a lot for a variety of custom looks.
Although the purple is stunning, I’ve been obsessed with Gleam Girl, the champagne shade since I often sport a neutral eye anyways and this just adds the right amount of glitter to make any look festive. These really remind me of the Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadows since they give you the same amount of stunning sparkle, but unlike those, these are not liquid.
I recommend doing your eyes before your foundation since there will be a little fall out, but it’s so worth it. If there is one holiday beauty item you pick up for yourself this season, this is it.
From your eyes to your lips, if you a gloss gal then you may want to pick up the Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer in Shine a Light. This C$35 high-shine lipgloss (swatched above) is a gold shade with pink shimmer. You can wear it alone or top it over a nude lipstick for the most glamorous lip look.
In case you haven’t tried Marc Jacobs Beauty’s Enamored Hi-Shine glosses, they pack on colour and shine thanks to its Triple Shine Complex, which is a blend of high-performance ingredients. The shine also helps your lips appear fuller and the product feels cushiony on the lips. The brand says that this gloss isn’t sticky, but I mean it’s lip gloss, and to me, all glosses are going to feel sticky. I also want to note that it has a mint flavour as well, so you’ll always feel like you have fresh breath.
If matte lips are more your thing, then you’ll want to look into the On The Dot Mini Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon Trio (on sale for C$22). This trio of mini crayon matte lipsticks includes two bestselling shades and one exclusive shade of the Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon.
Included in the set is Night Mauves (mauve), Plum N Get It (purple), and the exclusive shade, Red-y To Go (red). Although these are minis, these will last you awhile since the colour literally glides on the lips. I’ve never tried this formula before so when I was swatching it I was seriously impressed with the formulation of the product. A little definitely goes a long way since the colour is so bold and once it’s on it feels creamy and comfortable, unlike other matte lipsticks out there. Since it’s a crayon, it allows you to easily fill in the colour on your lips, making the application process a breeze. Best of all, since it’s on sale on Sephora right now, this would make the perfect stocking stuffer (or last minute Hanukkah gift!).
You can really never go wrong with Marc Jacobs Beauty, and just like in years past, they totally knocked it out of the park with their holiday collection this season. The collection also features a face and body brush, an all-over foil luminizer, and a gift set with minis of their best-selling lipstick and mascara. If you ask me though which item to pick up, it’s definitely the See-Quins eyeshadow since they are so beautiful and truly add major sparkle wherever you go.
