New Spring/Summer Marc Jacobs Cafe Collection is all about coffee. Even more, there are four products in the Spring/Summer 2021 Collection. First, the collection includes the new , caffeine-infused, foundation and concealer. Even more,they both come in 30 shades! Unfortunately, I haven’t tried them out, yet! Also included in the spring/summer collection are two Cafe Marc Jacobs O!Mega X Three Palettes. Each palette includes a blush, bronzer and highlighter. Although, the palette comes in two colorways, I only purchased one :Tantalize Glo! The other palette is Tantastic Glo!. However, both palettes are perfect for a bronzed, healthy look.
Finally, the Cafe Collection has three new matte gel Highliner eye crayon shades. I’ve always been a huge fan of these gel Highliners. One of the best qualities of the gel highliner is they are waterproof, so you can easily line your water lines with them. And,once they set, they don’t move!
You can find the Marc Jacobs Cafe Collection at Sephora, and on the Marc Jacobs Beauty Website. Also, the O!Mega X Three Powder Blush-Bronze-Highlight Palette Blush ( 0.26 0z./ 7.5g), Bronzer (0.35 oz./ 8g) and HIghlighter (0.25 oz./ 7.2g) costs $49. Additionally, the Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon (0.01 oz./ 0.5g) costs $26.
The Packaging For The Marc Jacobs Cafe Collection Omega X Three Palette and The Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon
The Omega X Three Palette Tantalize Glo!
To start with,the Omega X Three Palette Outer Box was inspired by dark coffee with swirls of cream . In fact, it reminds me of what you see ,looking inside your coffee cup, when you’ve added cream to your coffee. Next, the large square palette, with rounded corners, looks like a light, marbled, coconut cafe latte. All the writing, on the outer box, and the palette, is in gold. Also, on the outer edge of the front of the palette is a gold button. Push the button, and the lid unlocks. Then, simply lift up the lid. Even more, to close the palette push down on the lid until you hear it click, which locks it.
Once opened, the palette has a large mirror underneath the lid. On the other side of the mirror, are the three pans of powder. First, the top shade, the blush, is in a half moon. Then, the middle pan the bronzer, is a rectangular pan with curved edges. Underneath the bronzer, is the last pan, another half moon facing upwards. If you were to puzzle each piece together, they would form a circle.
Last, the palette is quite large. Although, I would call this palette’s packaging convenient. The reason is, the palette carries three nice-sized products in it. Therefore,I think the fact that it has three products in it, makes the palette travel-worthy!
Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon
Next, the Highliner Matte Gel Crayon comes in the signature black and white Marc Jacobs Box. Then, the crayon is silver on the outside. However, the top quarter of the crayon is the color of the shade of that specific crayon. Also, the bottom of the crayon twists the crayon up. Even more, at the very bottom of the crayon, is a black plastic piece. Pull on the piece, and it comes off of the crayon. Surprise! You’ve Just Found the hidden crayon sharpener!
The Formula For The Marc Jacobs Cafe Collection Omega X Three Palette
First, the blush, bronzer,and highlighter come in three different finishes. One, the blush has a satin finish. Two, the bronzer has a matte finish. Three, the highlighter has a shimmering finish. Also, all three products are powders. One,the powders are buildable. Also, you can layer these richly pigmented shades.
All three of the products apply smoothly, and seamlessly. Even more, the highlighter isn’t too intense. Also, the highlighter isn’t too subtle. I think it is just right. Although, if you want it to be more intense, you can wet your brush. Last, the palette has a light coconut latte scent. Finally, you know how much I love when the formulas are cruelty free!
The Formula For The Marc Jacobs Cafe Collection Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon
To start,you can line, smudge, layer, and design your eyes with the Highliner formula. Even more, the gel eye crayon formula is a cruelty free gel. I love that the liner’s formula is super pigmented, which gives you an intense color payoff. In addition, the gel liner glides on without tugging.
Another plus, the formula is malleable, which is good news. The reason is, you have 15 seconds of playtime before the formula dries down. Finally, the waterproof formula gives you 12 hours of wear-time.
The Marc Jacobs Cafe Collection Tantalize Glo! Omega X Three Palette Shades
First, The Tantalize Glo! Blush, a rose-pink shade, has a satin finish. Start with the rose-pink blush, and brush on the apples of your cheeks.
Next, The Tantalize Glo! Bronzer, a deep warm bronze shade, has a matte finish. First, apply the bronzer to the high-points of your face, in all the places where the sun hits your face.
Last, The Tantalize Glo! Highlighter, a rose gold shade, has a shimmering finish. Apply this highlighter anywhere you want a shimmer. For example, apply the highlighter to your upper cheekbones.
Also, your shoulders, and decolletage.
The Marc Jacobs Cafe Collection Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Shades
To begin with, three new shades were released with this collection. I didn’t purchase Blacquer Coffee. One reason is, I don’t need another deep, taupe brown shade. However, I love the two shades I did buy. First, Blacquer Emerald, a deep blue green, has a matte finish. As a matter of fact, teal is a popular color these days. I happen to love teal. In fact, I decorated my son and his wife’s house using teal as my accent shade.
Last, Blacquer Current, a deep purple berry shade, has a matte finish. This deep, purple, berry shade looks amazing with some of the rosy, pink palettes that have recently been released. For example, I would use this shade with the Divine Rose, and Divine Rose 11 Palettes. Even more, use it with the Natasha Denona Mini Love Palette.
My Final Thoughts On The Marc Jacobs Cafe Collection…..
I read a few reviews and was disappointed that a lot of people were not happy with the Tantastic Palette. Although, I purchased the deeper palette, Tantalize, which had better reviews. So, check Tantalize out. One thing I love is the three powders are in one palette. Also, the packaging is beautiful. I am in love with that great big mirror in the palette. One complaint, you have to use smaller brushes, which I am sure you have, to fit into some of the pans. Use a slanted brush for the blush. Then, use a fluffy brush for the bronzer. I know, you want to look bronzed and healthy,so you will probably dust your whole face,like I will !
Last, I love the gel matte eyeliners. The two new shades I purchased are awesome. Even more,the highliner is still my favorite liner.
I would love it if you commented about these products, and tell me what you think about them. Please drop me a line in the comments box below.
