April 18, 2014

Ladies, the wait is finally over – Marc Jacobs Beauty has landed in Singapore at last!!!  The pristine new counters were unveiled yesterday, and I couldn’t resist going down to Sephora Ion to check it all out!

I was really excited to find that the entire collection is out in full force, yes a whopping 147 products in total!!  There is alot to take in – from foundations (there are 2 different types plus powder), bronzer, eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, glosses, nail polishes and even the recently launched brushes!!!

Ever since I posted on Instagram earlier today (if you hadn’t yet, please do follow me @silverkis as I tend to post images faster than full product reviews), I’ve had quite a few people ask me what are my top picks from the brand.  I have actually picked up quite a number of items from the US since the collection launched last year, and had a chance to swatch the other items that I had my eyes on in person today.  So here are my unbiased, straight-from-the-hip comments:

And in terms of my thoughts on specific products:

Even with uneven product quality, there are some gems in there for everybody.  Prices are about 15-20% higher than the US, but if you factor in shipping costs and exchange rate fluctuations, plus you can make use of your Sephora Singapore 10% loyalty discount (with every $200 spent), the difference is negligible.  Products are flying off the shelves, so be sure to check them out soon!
