Marc Jacobs’ new beauty collection was recently released at Sephora. The collection features a full range of products, including powders, foundations, makeup brushes as well as a select few product to “share with the boys“. The packaging is right on track to the Marc Jacobs aesthetic and generally bold on color. The Full Coverage Lip Vinyl’s as well as the range of High-Shine Nail Lacquers were the pieces that particularly spoke to me. In most, this neutral though complex shade, Fluorescent Beige.
Marc Jacobs’ Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer was formulated to deliver a “plasticized, wet-look” and the shine of “30 coats of lacquer.” I would say this description is right on in relation to shade 142 Fluorescent Beige. The Enamored Nail Lacquer is also 3-free and available in a range of 24 shades.
The Nail Lacquer from Marc Jacobs comes in an adorable oval-shaped bottle. The black cap removes to reveal a smaller, round cap for an easier application. The brush is standard, like that familiar of Essie and Opi Nail Polishes. The formula isn’t anything exceptional and takes some talent to create a streak-free finish. What is exceptional however, is the incredible finish which is heavy on shine and ”gel-like“. The iridescence in Fluorescent Beige also adds to that awesome plasticized-finish. I’ve been wearing Fluorescent Beige now for 5 days and there is zero indication of wear.

Fluorescent Beige is an iridescent light mauve pink. The color is transformative in different lighting, transitioning to deep mauve to a lighter pink beige. So, despite some difficulty in application, the shade and finish well make up for it. There are some stunning shades in the collection and I am curious to further discover Marc Jacobs range of Nail Polishes.
Marc Jacobs High Shine Nail Lacquer is $18 at Sephora
