Marc Jacobs Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift 2016

Beauty Insider Birthday Gift (Affiliate Links)

This weekend, during my birthday festivities, I happened to be in the vicinity of Sephora– so I popped in to redeem my much-anticipated Beauty Insider Birthday gift. The moment that I received their email, I knew that I really wanted this Marc Jacobs/Sephora birthday collaboration.

This set includes a mini Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and a mini Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Blacquer 42.
Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a beautiful mid-tone rose that can be built up, or sheered out. I haven't worn it for a sustained period of time, but it is very comfortable on lips and the color is really beautiful.

It is described as,

A rich, velvety, ultra-hydrating lipstick that delivers a dramatic punch of vivid pigment and endless hours of luxurious wear. Indulge your lips with Marc’s new revolutionary 10-hour lipstick that saturates your lips in luxe and creamy, vibrant pigment with just one swipe. Experience unprecedented color payoff from concentrated color-boost pigments that are triple-milled and enriched with hydrating ingredients—leaving lips with ultimate long-lasting color and moisture. Instantly, lips feel plumped and nourished from powerful peptides, antioxidant-rich seaberry, and natural humectants, including meranti and cocoa butter. 

Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Blacquer 42 is #amazing! If you seek an ultra-pigmented, rich black eyeliner that is absolutely waterproof and ultra-longwearing– then this is your new holy grail. When I am running around at work, in particular, I have very little time to primp and preen, and I am reliant on an eyeliner that won't smudge, fade, or transfer during the day. Most do eventually, but this one simply doesn't budge. I will definitely be purchasing this soon.

It is described as,

A waterproof gel crayon eyeliner that's long wearing with intense color payoff. Make a bold statement with this extreme-wear, waterproof eyeliner. Like a gel pot eyeliner encased within a crayon, this breakthrough product is exclusive to Marc Jacobs Beauty. The super-malleable formula glides on smoothly for a flawless, precise application, and then sets in place for all-day wear. A built-in sharpener makes sure the crayon always has a perfect point for a sharp look on the go. It offers intense color payoff and is available in an array of richly pigmented shades, including Blacquer, the blackest, shiniest black. 
I think that you will be really happy with this birthday gift, and definitely suggest picking yours up this year. If you are looking for an incredibly long-wearing budge-proof eyeliner, then this one is a definite must-have.

  1. Happy Birthday, Helen!! I didn't know your birthday was this weekend. I wish you a year of happiness and good health! What did you do to celebrate? My birthday is in 2 months, and I definitely can wait, lol, but now I'm eager for this lovely gift from Sephora. I love the MJ eyeliner pencils, and I'm looking forward to getting that lovely lippie!

  3. I think it's so enticing to have Marc Jacobs as the birthday gift. I haven't worn mine since I know it's not my kind of color but I think it's a beauty.

    1. I completely agree with you! This was a real treat! Try blending this shade with one of your light pink or nude lippies– I think that you will find it much more wearable that way!
