Tag: Marc Jacobs BEauty Coconut Eye Primer review

Marc Jacobs Beauty is one of the brands which I have on rotation in my everyday routine, whether it is their highliner, lipstick, eye primer, or mascara. I have few products which I have been testing on and off since last few weeks. They include the new Velvet Primer- Epic Lash Primer, Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara, Le Marc Lip Creme, Eye Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette, Under Cover Eye Perfecting Coconut Eye Primer, Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter and ‘The Face III’ Buffing Foundation Brush.

Velvet Primer- Epic Lash Primer is the newest launch from the brand which you might have seen all over Instagram. It is defined as an ultra-plush lash primer with a conditioning base that maximizes the benefits of any mascara for lashes that look longer, fuller and more dramatic. This is an interesting product for me, I have tried many face primers, eye primers, but this is a first for me to try an eyelash primer. This primer gives full treatment for lashes that feel luxuriously soft and healthy, not brittle or dry. It also helps prevent your mascara from flaking.  I have used it a few times and it does work, it makes my long lashes even longer like I am wearing false lashes. It does not work alone but with mascara on top. The wand works nicely to apply this primer.

Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara is not something I have used for the first time but have used it in the past and I like it. With the Velvet Primer for lash, the duo gives volumized look and dramatic finish to the lashes. This lash-maximizing, curvy brush in this volumizing mascara places the most volume at the hard-to-reach centre lash line, and the defining tip styles lashes for major drama. The ultra-concentrated black pigment delivers the greatest visual impact, and the flash volume complex creates instant, smudge-free length and volume in three strokes or less. The colour is a rich velvety black which I like.

Le Marc Lip Creme is the same creamy, moisturizing, long-lasting formula which I reviewed in the past and also in the post here. The shades I have swatched are below:

202 Goddess – Classic Red

210 Blow – Burgundy Red

286 Sugar and Spice – Bold Berry Red

Eye Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Fantascene 790 – Sensual Nudes and Shimmering Pops has a long-wearing eyeshadow formula as the other Marc Jacobs Beauty eyeshadow palettes, the last I reviewed here. The eyeshadow formula is very easy to work with, is very smooth, and pigmented. It blends easily, even the matte shades. The shades are buildable to high intensity.  This is one of my favourite palettes with a gorgeous collection of shades. It will be suitable for most of the skin tones and ages, to create a simple neutral to glamorous eye looks.

Under Cover Eye Perfecting Coconut Eye Primer is a luxurious, crease-proof eye primer formulated with coconut extracts to lock in colour for up to 12 hours. For my oily lids, I do enjoy this eye primer. It glides on effortlessly with a creamy, lightweight texture, and helps even skin tone, intensifying eyeshadow for gorgeous payoff in every stroke. A little dot is all you need for both eyes, dries quickly, and the packaging is so beautiful. I have noticed minimal end-of-the-day creasing on my eyelids.

‘The Face III’ Buffing Foundation Brush is a brush for buffing the liquid foundation onto the skin to give a natural flawless airbrushed finish. The brush is so soft and works nicely for all creamy liquid products, it may be a primer or foundation. The innovative brush head and its blend-friendly synthetic bristles sweep foundation evenly across skin’s curves and contours for an expert, full-coverage finish. I have experienced no shedding of the bristles.

Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter is inspired by Marc Jacobs’s love of coconut water and the glow of youthful, radiant, well-hydrated skin, this luminous gel-cream instantly lights up the complexion. It can be used to highlight skin directly or mix this concentrated luminizer with foundation and primer to transform them into illuminating elixirs. This gel highlighter builds for the ultimate sheen, and the sensual golden-peach hue flatters all skin tones with warm radiance.

Apart from all the glow, it does nourish the skin with some nice hydrating ingredients. For me, it is perfect for the evening parties or weekends when applying directly on top of my makeup. Mixing a drop with my primer and then applying foundation over it gives a glowy base which does work out for the day application. And for sure I can not wait to take this highlighter with me on my next holiday.

The products are definitely worth checking out, be their formula, comfort and ease of use or the packaging. Marc Jacobs Beauty is available at Sephora.ca, Sephora, NordstromNeiman Marcus.
