The new Marc Jacobs Beauty cosmetic line includes the Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Bold Blush ($30 USD / $36 CAD) in 9 vibrant shades. Marc Jacobs Beauty will be available exclusively at Sephora and Marc Jacobs stores on August 9, 2013 and is inspired by the spirit of youth, confidence and experimentation.
This blush comes in a gorgeous, sleek black laquered compact with a silver “Marc Jacobs” logo and push-pin opening mechanism. The interior of the compact has a small mirror (I wish it was a large mirror like the Powder has). It comes with a super soft angled brush and a fabric, snap-closure pouch. I actually love the pouch that it comes in (the powder and eyeshadow palettes do too but just different sizes)! They are much nicer than the typical velvet pouches you see with other high end brands, and I feel like it would be great for organizing things in your purse (makeup, bandaids, q-tips, breath mints, cell phone cables, etc).
The shade I have is 216 Rebellious, which is a cool berry tone with a satin finish. I have to say that out of all the pieces of tried from Marc Jacobs Beauty so far, the blush is by far my favorite. I love the texture, the pigmentation is stunning, the packaging is lovely and it blends flawlessly on the skin. Even though it’s such a vibrant, bold blush… it really softens down and looks very wearable. I’m very excited to checkout the other shades in the line.
I found that the blush did fade a bit towards the end of the day, but overall I was quite impressed with its performance. The mini brush fits into the pouch as well so you can keep the two together. Definitely happy to see that this product is a winner!
