You’ve wanted it, probably craved it and most likely stalked it but the wait is over, it is finally here….the Marc Jacobs Beauty Line has FINALLY launched and is available exclusively at Sephora (try not to stampede the beauty mecca’s locations ladies). The expansive Marc Jacobs Beauty collection (and believe me ladies, it is VAST) contains an assortment of 16 innovative complexion and color cosmetics, and four chic and luxurious makeup brushes.

Marc Jacobs Beauty’s smart complexion products (shown above) offer tomorrow’s technology today with state-of-the-art global ingredients, buildable and flawless coverage as well as superb finishes.

Switching to beauty tools, the Marc Jacobs Beauty makeup brushes (the collection features four) offer precision performance for flawless application of his innovative new gel and powder formulas: they are Face I, Face II, The Blush, and The Bronze.

Marc’s inspiration for the collection stems from the spirit of “The Girl” and her makeup ritual. “I think the idea of transforming into this person you want to be is a lot of fun…it’s this idea of a young woman enjoying creating her look, getting ready for her night out, or her night after her night out.”

As with his fashion, Marc’s rule-breaking creativity is at the heart of his makeup vision. For him, it’s about the spirit of youth, confidence and experimentation. He inspires you to push the boundaries and create your own style. So indulge in the impeccably exquisite textures, take liberties with his provocative shades, and play with his daring designs.
