The new Marc Jacobs Beauty Collection will launch exclusively at Sephora on Aug. 9, showcasing the designer's makeup vision and creativity through a wide range of colors and innovative formulas and textures.
As with the designs in his own eponymous designer collections, and as creative director for Louis Vuitton, his work embodies the spirit of youth, confidence and experimentation, inspiring others to push boundaries and create their own style, here by indulging in provocative shades and new textures to suit his definition of beauty as "imperfectly perfect."
In a press release quotation, he said, “I see beauty in many things and I am attracted to all sorts of imperfection. ... It's unexpected and surprises you."
In coming up with the color collection, he considered the makeup ritual, and said, “I think the idea of transforming into this person you want to be, is a lot of fun.”
The assortment of 16 complexion and color cosmetics, and makeup brushes, includes:
>> Genius gel super-charged foundation ($48): Hydrates skin with coconut water extracts, available in 16 shades.
Marc Jacobs Remedy Concealer Pen is intended to combat signs of overindulgence and late-night revelry.
