Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Reality Collection

Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Reality Collection

I love Marc Jacobs products even though I don't have many of them as they tend to be on the expensive side. But, that said, they are worth the extra $$$'s as they are usually excellent quality. I was therefore very pleased to see a new collection from the brand on the Sephora website.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Reality - Volumizing Mascara and Gel Eyeliner Collection

This is a limited edition trio of products that include mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow as well as a cute makeup bag. 

I want to start with the makeup bag as it very eye catching. The illustrations are by artist Julie Verhoeven who was also featured in other Spring 2017 Marc Jacobs products. There definitely seems to be a trend for cosmetics companies to use artists work to accentuate their own products. The recent announcement from about the Urban Decay x Jean-Michel Basquiat Collection is proof of that. 

“Julie Verhoeven is a British artist and illustrator known for her whimsical designs that are heavy with pop culture references. Collaborating with Marc Jacobs for the Spring 2017 collection, Verhoeven created modern cartoon imagery used in landscape patch-working across all product categories.”

Anyway, onto the makeup itself. In this collection you get 

0.01 oz/ 0.5 g Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in th(ink) (cool blue) 
0.17 oz/ 5 g Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara in Noir
0.05 oz/ 1.6 g Twinkle Pop Eye Stick in On the Verge (icy grape shimmer) 

The Highliner Gel Eye Crayon is an award winner that is waterproof for that stay put look. The mascara claims to give you 1,800 percent larger in just three strokes. WOW! So overall, these three products should give you stunning eyes.

Available now at Sephora for $64 CND/$49 USD.
