Marc Jacobs Beauty Insider

Through new Eyes Sephora Marc Jacobs Beauty Insider 500 reward point gift
Through new Eyes Sephora Marc Jacobs Beauty Insider 500 reward point gift

So a little while back I bought some things from Sephora (online so I got murdered with their taxes and shipping) but one perk of it all was that I got my free 500 point gift. I was holding off to order until a good one came up as I wasn't too interested in the Dr. Brandt 500 point gift that was on before this. But as soon as I saw this one I wanted it, I got one Marc Jacobs lipstick and loved it so I definitely wanted another one.. 

So in the box I got Precision Pen Waterproof liner, Lip Creme in Magenta 224, Highliner Gel Eye Crayon and a Megalash Volumising mascara. They aren't full sized products, but they're still a good enough size to try all of them out and see what they're like. I love the lipstick though, one of my favourite shades.. it's a deep plum colour which I love all year round. It is a sheen finish though so it doesn't last as long as matte shades, but it's tiny enough to throw in any bag anyway!

The liner pen is pretty amazing too, it has a really sharp nib to get literally the easiest cat eye look! (Unless you have a super shaky hand haha). It isn't gloopy of anything so you aren't going to smudge it or have thick lines. I like this as it doesn't transfer under my brows like a lot of liners do on me, so that saves me some time when out and about as I don't have to rub it off!

The gel liner was pretty strange looking to me, it literally feels like gel but in pencil form and goes on a lot easier than a pen. You don't have to apply any pressure to get a really good colour from it either. The packaging really makes this for me though, it looks so fancy in it's metallic silver casing. It also is so hard wearing, I mean I drew a line on my arm and it still has a faint line after trying to remove it!

The mascara to me isn't what I'm used to, it's been a long time since I used mascara with bristles rather than the plastic bristles. It's really similar to Bobbi Browns smokey mascara (if you've tried it), it gives you great volume but not the best length. So if you have good lashes this is pretty good, but if you like lengthening mascara it isn't too good at that! I'm still dying to try Lancome's cult mascara.

I absolutely loved this box though, I'm really glad I got the chance to grab this before it sold out. I just need to build up my points so I can get another one next time. Have you got anything from the Sephora points programme?

  8. I don't shop at Sephora often (because makeup is just a huge mystery to me and I have no idea what I'm doing haha), but they seem to have really great rewards and deals! I'm really drawn to that lip color, and I'll have to see if I can find it for fall!
