Marc Jacobs’ surprising style and innovative techniques has charmed crowds and crowds of fans that have a parallel love for fashion, styling and beauty. The way the brand allows women to be who they are as they get glammed up with clothes and accessories became transformative vision that made it possible for the brand to expand it territories…and excel in the process, too. The Marc Jacobs Beauty is such a testament to that, practically a newbie in the beauty world, but has immediately become well-respected luxury beauty brand.
The Man Behind the Brand
Marc Jacobs’ 30 years in the fashion industry has proven to be fruitful—both for him and the fashion industry. While he created a name for himself, he was able to challenge American fashion’s limits, through his outspoken techniques and brilliant perspectives. Despite the always ambitious vision of the man and his brand, they remain to be grounded on integrity and honesty, a characteristic that they carried onto the newest diffusion line in the company: Marc Jacobs Beauty.
The beauty brand came in at a time when the industry was saturated with other luxury brands and even celebrity line releases, yet it was able to set itself apart. How? Marc Jacobs offer products that have an unexpected factor in them, yet are perfect for an everyday luxurious look. Such vision stems from the brand’s belief that our personality and individuality can be highlighted and further defined by makeup, fragrance, and fashion.
The Beauty Line
In 2013, when the Marc Jacobs Beauty officially launched, it wasn’t a slow start for the brand. Of course, with Marc Jacobs’ confidence, it wasn’t just a dip in the water; it was diving into the makeup world headfirst. The chic sense of style of the clothing brand was one of the major factors of the beauty line’s style—with types of makeup ranging from lip gel, eyeliner, concealer, foundation, and mascara. Of course everything was made interesting though pops of colors here and there, with bold selections that would tickle any makeup lover’s imagination.
Marc Jacobs Beauty’s early success and great reception of fans made it a strong contender in the luxury beauty realm. But its edge comes from the designs of the fashion house and Marc himself, making it a more interesting beauty brand. With the aim of the label to “get dressed with beauty,” it started using Marc Jacobs Beauty solely on the Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2018 runway.
Even just after a few years in the beauty industry, many products of the brand have amassed a huge following from makeup lovers and even makeup professionals. Some of the best items from the brand include the Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator, a lightweight products that gives off a natural-looking glow that’s enough to brighten up the face with luxurious silver and gold tones.
Marc Jacobs’ Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick is also another fan favorite, especially with its rich and well-pigmented formula that nourishes the lips, too! Unlike many of the available lip products nowadays, this lipstick doesn’t dry the lips and make it look oh-so-fabulous. The Re(Marc)Able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate is another best-seller that’s loved because of its awesome formula—it gives a full-coverage even with just a tiny amount of product. Other items that are worth mentioning include the Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara with the clump-proof formula for daily use, and the Air Blush Soft Glow Duo with a buildable coverage to help you choose from a soft blush to a fabulously pink cheeks.
Marc Jacobs Beauty may be a fairly new player in the luxury makeup fields, but its recent successes prove that it’s a brand that’s worth the price and the craze. With the long-wearing pigments, innovative textures, rich formulas and bold hues of the brand’s current line of makeup, we can’t help but get excited about what’s coming next in the future. I guess we’ll all be at the edge of our seats, waiting for Marc Jacobs Beauty to surprise us again and again.
