New launched Marc Jacobs Beauty Accomplice Concealer & Touch-Up Stick is long wear, creamy concealer & touch-up stick, perfect for on the go, in a range of 17 full-coverage shades. The stick concealer is creamy and provides full coverage with a swipe or two on the spots, blemishes, or problem areas. The finish looks natural and skin-like.
It layers beautifully under or over makeup, blurring the look of pores and imperfections while hiding blemishes and uneven skin tone. It does not look cakey and stays put for a full day. Also, it does not dry out my skin or the problem area, as I apply it on my blemish and it keeps the area intact without looking cakey or creasing. The ultra-creamy formula is poured into a portable stick, creating a dip on the surface that perfectly fits your fingertip for easy application.
For my combination skin which is more on the oily side during summers, I did not have any issues with this thick creamy concealer, it blends nicely into the skin with a finger, beauty sponge, or concealer brush or can be swiped directly from the stick onto the skin which I usually avoid. The warmth of the finger makes it blend seamlessly into the skin. Setting it up with setting powder is an optional step for me, but as I normally use a setting powder once I am finished with my base, I continue that which also makes this concealer last longer than usual. I have been mixing two shades to make it match my skin tone but the medium 33 is closer to my skin tone during summer. Medium 33 is for medium skin tones with a yellow undertone, Light 23 is for light skin tones with peach undertones.
The Conceal Full Cover Correcting Brush No 14 is an angled concealer brush that helps conceal imperfections. The brush is so soft and dense, applies and blends the concealer effortlessly without any streaking. I have been using it with the Accomplice Concealer & Touch-Up Stick and the pair works great together. After applying the concealer, it also works to apply the setting powder on top, just dab the brush into the powder and apply after dusting off the excess. The innovative design with asymmetrical brush head allows for easy, precise application.

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, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus.
