We told you a little over a year ago that Marc Jacobs would be doing a makeup line
, and we've finally got some details, plus a sneak peek of the collection! First off, it boasts a whopping 122 products that will come in four different categories: Smart Complexion (foundations, concealer, and powder), Blacquer (eyeliner, lash lifter, and gel crayon), Hi-Per Color (lip products, blush, eye shadow, bronzer, and nail polish) and Boy Tested, Girl Approved (unisex products such as lip balm, brow gel, and concealer).
As for the collection? Don't expect naturals and nudes. If you've ever seen a Marc Jacobs runway
, you know the man is a fan of color. He told WWD
, "that's a little lazy." Jacobs was part of the whole process for this beauty line. The names of the products, the packaging, colors, etc., were all inspired by his (very colorful) tattoos, favorite movies, and so on and so forth. Basically, it's all going to be very Marc. "We spent a lot of time developing materials and choosing the colors. We work with the technicians at the mills to achieve a certain effect, so we did the same thing with Sephora. The color palette tells a story and that story is based on a spirit. I chose different types of characters, such as an ingenue."
The pricing is a little on the high side, ranging from around $24 for lip balm to $59 for an eye shadow palette. The Marc Jacobs x Sephora
collection will debut at Sephora stores and Marc Jacobs boutiques August 9, 2013. Mark your calenders! For now, check out the sneak peek below.
