Marc Jacobs Beauty- Eye Con No 3, Enamored Nail Polish & Remedy Concealer

As you probably have heard Marc Jacobs has a makeup line coming out . It hits Sephora August 9th and has had the beauty world buzzing for months. Sephora did a small  pre- sale last week and everything sold out fast.

Today I got a first look at some of the hotly anticipated products and I'm bringing you the scoop.

First off, Marc got the packaging oh so right. It's done beautifully and has a very New York vibe  along with nice touches like the silver tip clasp on the eye compact. We all know that the product is most important, but let's face it, most of us also have a soft spot for good packaging.

The eye trio  in the line is Style Eye-Con No.3 and shown in Rebel .  While I am not too sure about that magenta, at least on me , the eggplant and buff shades are lovely and work well together. The pigment is rich, there wasn't much flaking during application and it  blends pretty easily . It wore well over the course of half the day. I haven't given it an all day test yet , but was impressed with that wear time on my oily eyelids with no primer.

Each eye compact comes in a an MJ logo snap pouch and has a small brush inside as as well as an MJ protective cover.  There are six Eye Con No. 3 palettes available along with 7 shade palettes as well.

The nail polish is called Enamored  and is in shade Glinda. Again the packaging. I like the oval ,  flat bottle. It holds in your hand easily. The top cap comes off with a smaller cap underneath. I think even without a swatch you can see this is one of those party on your hands shades and super sparkly. There are 24 shades of Enamored in all.  According to the company the  wet look finish is that of 30 coats of lacquer.

Next up is the concealer/perfecting pen Remedy. MJ says it has an exclusive anti -aging complex  and helps to correct, brighten and erase. The tip is patented with palladium to cool skin. It has a click pen at the bottom .

The Remedy shade I have is called Stand Corrected and is their "universal" corrector. It's very light , almost too light for my under eye but overall worked well on my pale skin.  It's very creamy, smooth and is not too thin of a formula , a dislike of mine in concealer, and has good pigment.  It concealed well under my eyes and along the nose and was nicely moisturizing.   Remedy comes 7 shades in addition to Stand Corrected along with brightening Bright Idea .

So my take on Marc Jacobs Beauty ? So far, very good.  Some are fun, others more useful but all seem to be high quality.  I have the gel foundation also and will try to get that in separate post.

The line was created with  Sephora and they are the exclusive retailer along with select Marc Jacobs stores.

Marc Jacobs Style Eye- Con No. 3 is $ 42
Marc Jacobs Enamored Nail Polish is $ 18
Marc Jacobs Remedy is $ 39
