Introduction to Marc Jacobs Beauty
I’m new to this brand. Where should I start?
Lipgloss: Their lipgloss range is average; a big reason they did not score high was that they said “maximum color” and what I’ve tried has, in general, been sheer, but they are easy to wear. Lipstick: Their Le Marc Lip Creme is fairly popular with readers from what I can tell; my experience was that they were longer-wearing at four to six hours but not the full ten (so the ratings suffered a good deal from missing the mark there) and aren’t hydrating, but they are pigmented.
Blushes: I’m not a fan of their powder formula; it seemed unnecessarily stiff/firm in the pan and really hard to get color out of them, but I have not tried any since the brand originally launched.
Base products: There is a lot of love for the newer Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation, which is a foundation that does offer a lot of coverage, but I’ve struggled to find a decent shade match (I have three shades, and the shade range itself is quite large!) and have had trouble applying it (sometimes it looks good, sometimes it makes my skin look dry). I like the Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer for adding some slip and light hydration to the skin.
Brushes: If you’re looking for a higher-end, synthetic range of brushes, particularly face/cheek brushes, these are nice. They are well-made, wash easily, retain their shape after washing, feel nice against the skin, and perform well overall.

I bet you thought GOLD! was coming today, but I actually wanted to focus on pewter, which is kind of a mix of silver and gold, often with an antique, vintage, or “dirty” vibe to it. Pewter is a lot like taupe–it is hard to define, and it can be warmer or cooler (more golden or more silver). What are your favorites? I’m always in the market for a new shade of pewter!
