Marc Jacobs Beauty Haul & Giveaway News

When I visited America, Sephora was the first shop I wanted to visit and one of the reasons was that I couldn't wait to check out the new Marc Jacobs Beauty line.  I was like a kid in a candy shop. It is a great range with a lot of really nice products and colours.  I visited Sephora a number of times while I was on holiday as I just couldn't make up my mind what to buy, but in the end I went for 2 Lust For Lacquer Lip Vinyl Sheer Lip Glosses and 4 Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquers.
 
 
The Lust For Lacquer Lip Vinyl Sheer Lip Glosses I purchased were -  Lust for Life (312) a shimmering reddish raspberry and Sweet Escape (306) a shimmering nude pink.  They were $28 each (approx £17).   These are sheer lip glosses that have a really nice caramel fragrance.  At first I wasn't sure about the plumping formula, but when I put the gloss on I do feel a tingling on my lips although I'm not sure if it makes my lips look any fuller.
 
The description on the website says:
A champagne grape-infused lip vinyl with a shimmery wash of lust-worthy, sheer-coverage color.  This lightly pigmented, plumping formula is infused with antioxidants, essential oils, and a hint of effervescence for a perfect pout with the highest shine. The patented, pillowed applicator glides on the lip vinyl for precise application with a shimmery, lust-worthy finish.

The Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquers I purchased were - Gatsby (110) a metallic champagne pink, Sally (130) an iridescent blackened green, Jezebel (138) an opaque black cherry red and Petra (140) a dirty bronze metallic shimmer. These were $18 each (approx £12).  I have only used them for the photo below and only Sally needed 2 coats, but they all dried really quickly(without a top coat).  They all look just as good on the nail as they do in the bottle.  I haven't tried Jezebel for a reason you will find out at the end of this post.   Sally looks better in real life, than it does in the photo, as the green shows up more.
 
The description on the website says:
A superior polish with an unprecedented finish and the shine of 30 coats of lacquer. Get smitten with this fresh take on nail enamel. Inspired by Marc’s highly lacquered coffee table, Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer is formulated with patented bonding agents that deliver a plasticized, wet look, while the color-rich creams and fine glitters ensure vivid, chip-resistant wear. Choose from a vast array of shades inspired by Marc’s favorite movies. The custom, curve-hugging brush optimizes application and the curvature of the bottle resembles a smile. Each shade is 3-Free: formulated without toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP.

I was really pleased with my purchases and can't wait to use them all.  As its not available over here I thought a product from this range would be a really great giveaway, so look out for a Marc Jacobs giveaway soon.  The prize will be the Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Jezebel (138).
