You guessed right !!! I am absolutely LOVING Marc Jacobs. I mean I have been collecting products for a little over 2 yrs now. All in all I can only remember returning 2 items. One was a dropper foundation that was way too drying on me, and another was a concealer because it didn’t match my skin tone. But everything else I have picked up over the years has been perfect. Not to mention, the BEST PART? Marc Jacobs is CRUELTY FREE !!! The entire brand does not test on animals. I have to respect them for this. I wish more would follow suit. Yay for the bunnies 🐇🐇🐇
This was the FIRST foundation I bought from them. After the first foundation mishap of course 😉 I solely bought this because of the shade. I am a pale princess and finding true pale girl friendly shades are hard to come by. They’re either too orange or too pink. This is the perfect pale neutral shade. The formula is pretty good too if you’re dry or oily. I just recommend good exfoliation especially in the winter.

Then came the love of lip glosses. These were all the rage last year. The first being Sugar Sugar from Jaclyn Hills recommendations. I didn’t like that shade, but instead I chose two beautiful pinky nude shades. One is a beautiful muted rose and the other has Rose Gold micro shimmer in it. It’s a little out of the box but in the sunlight it looks beautiful.
Value : $28.00 each.
Then came the beautiful blushes that had everyone going absolutely crazy !! I got lucky and received one of the blushes through Influenster. I loved it so much I needed to buy another. And I chose a beautiful soft nude shade. It’s so natural looking that it blends seamlessly into my bronzer. And on days where I don’t want much fuss I just swirl a bit on my brush, tap it on and go.
Value: $42.00 each
Next I decided to pick up a setting powder. I heard mixed reviews on this but I needed something finely milled and similar to the Nars Crystal Powder that wouldn’t crease on me. Now this product can take some time to get use to. I swear I wanted to return it a million times but after getting the first layer off I was so glad it stayed. I use this every single morning to set my under eyes. It’s beautiful. No heavy cakey powder and it makes your skin look airbrushed. I have been pleasantly surprised by this. Paired with those blushes and you’re all set. I haven’t noticed any flashback but I think it can if you’re not careful.
Next I NEEDED a lipstick. Of course right ? I mean why not ? My collection NEEDED another nude shade. Haha.
I got this little beauty during one of their 20% sales. Seemed like the best time.
The formula is smooth. It’s definitely not a Matte but it’s not a satin. I’d say its more of a creme. My only issue with this lipstick is it moves on me. I find the best way to use this is lightly with a lip brush and after using lip liner. I think because the formula is so thick it can be too much. I’ve also applied it using my fingers. This way gives you the most natural look.
Value: $30.00 each
Then OMG the big Kahuna. I fell HARD for this product. I’m still in love with it. I waited up for hours when it released the first time and it sold out before I could grab it. Then again when it released I got lucky and snatched it up at like 2 in the morning. And when this sweet dear bronzed beauty arrived at my door I swear I heard doves sing 🎶
The bronzer SMELLS LIKE COCONUTS !! And the shade is a lot different from the original shade they came out with. This is definitely geared more towards us pale beauties. I have used this everyday since I got it and I think it’s worth every damn penny 🙌🏻

And last bit not least are products I NEVER thought I’d buy. I mean come on !! Who the hell would spend this much on a lip balm?! But your girl was desperate. My Lupus was acting up and my lips were cracked and bleeding and I wanted to cry. So one day while I was in Sephora I tested it on the back of my hand. I almost bought a lip balm from Urban Decay but I kept coming back to this one. I decided what the hell. I bought it and my lips have thanked me everyday since. It really is good at hydrating them and keeping the alligator scales at bay. So for as long as it works, momma will keep buying 🙌🏻
What have you chosen from Marc Jacobs ? Do you see any of your favorites here?? I’d love to hear your thoughts on his products. And what do you think of my new series ? Every month I will choose a brand that speaks to me. This month I definitely saw a difference in my skin using MJ products. Next month may be different. We’ll see.
Until next time. Xoxo
