After the recent rumours about leaving the position of Louis Vuitton’s Creative Director, Marc Jacobs has found the way to calm us down with his new venture into the beauty segment. Having been loyal fans of each and every fragrance he has produced, we couldn’t help our excitement in the hearing of a future beauty collection under his name. And here we are now, counting down the days until we lay our hands on it!
120 pieces named according to Marc’s saucy signature style will compose this much expected beauty line that is to be launched exclusively at Sephora and selected Marc Jacobs stores on August 9. Amongst all products, the range will include two different foundations, a unisex concealer, eye and lip products and a mascarathat washes off with warm water. #thank_you

Star pieces of the collection? The Magic Marc’er Precision Pen Eye Liner and the Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer for nails, available in 24 shades including Jezebel and Shiny –rings any bells? They are THOSE deep red and glossy top coatwe saw on Marc’s Autumn/Winter 2013-14 catwalk.
“I like the transformative qualities of fashion and fashion to me is not just clothing, it’s handbags, it’s shoes, it’s clothes, it’s hair, it’s make up, it’s fragrance, it’s the whole ritual of making those choices, of enjoying the ritual, of making the choices that will tell the world who you want to be that day”, he says.

“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”, Jacobs said. “I see beauty in many things and am attracted to all sorts of imperfection, to style, to confidence or experimentation. It’s unexpected and surprises you”.
