It’s rare to see a value set that all contains products I would use. So, when I came across the Marc Jacobs Beauty set ($49 CAD), I put it in my cart without thinking twice.
I’m a fan of all these items and they are staples that I use on a daily basis so with a $87 CAD value and the only travel size being the mascara (which I’m ok with because it’s still large enough to last me at least 2 and a half months), I jumped on it.
The set comes with a small mirror (not pictured because I didn’t want to blind you) but it doesn’t come in a protective case so I’m worried it’ll get scratched. Other than that, its a decent mirror that gets the job done. Now, for the reason why I bought this set!
Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer ($31 CAD full size)
I am a huge fan of the Marc Jacobs gel eye crayons because I find that they are pigmented, long wearing but creamy enough to glide onto the eye without tugging or pulling on my lashline. When I tightline my upper lash line with this, it doesn’t transfer on me like all other liners do!
For those that dont want to spend $31 CAD on one liner, I recommend the Tarte Double Take Eyeliner because it’s $2 cheaper, has a liner that performs the same as the Marc Jacobs one but also includes a felt tip liner on the other side that’s super black, long lasting and precise.
Magic Marc’er Precision Pen Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Blacquer ($38 CAD full size)
This is an OK liner, definitely not my favorite. I find the liner feathers out into the small tiny fine lines around my eyes and it’s not as black as some of my other ones (i.e. the Tarte liner mentioned above or my Stila and Kat Von D liquid liners). You really need to shake this liner before using it and it’ll get the job done and the applicator is a precise felt tip so i’ll definitely use it up but at almost $40 a pop, I likely wont repurchase. By the way, are you living for the packaging? it looks exactly like a pen haha
Mini Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara ($33 CAD full size)
This is my favy-favvvv mascara of all time! Just when I think I found a mascara I love, I’ll try a sample size of this mascara and fall back in love with it. This mascara adds volume and length while making your lashes incredibly black. This is like wearing a pair of demi-wispies on your lashes and I’ll always enjoy applying mascara when I have this in my arsenal of makeup 🙂
