Coming this Friday, August 9th, Marc Jacobs is set to launch his first makeup line called Marc Jacobs Beauty. It will be sold at Sephora, and also available at marcjacobs.com. This is Marc’s first ever beauty product line with packaging said to resemble his favorite lacquered coffee table.
This is a 122 piece collection that consists of nail polish, foundation, concealer, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, lip balm/sticks/gloss, bronzer, blush, and some seriously crazy expensive brushes. As an extra special touch, Marc drew inspiration from his tattoos and favorite movies for his color names.
Sephora released a few of the products last month, which blew out of stock. Although I have to yet try any of the items, I have to say for me the polishes are where it’s at. I’m feeling like Blue Velvet may just be the “it” polish of the fall. So, are you ready shop for Marc Jacobs Beauty this Friday? If so, make sure to get a head start as it’s likely these products may not be around for very long.
And the new Pantone color of the year for 2013 is……EMERALD! PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald to be exact. When I heard this news the first image that popped into my mind was this Tom Ford dress photographed by Erik Madigan Heck for the Neiman Marcus Art of Fashion Campaign. I absolutely loved this picture due to the choice of such an amazing color scheme.
Pantone takes pride in being the world’s leading color authority, and we listen. The process of selecting the color of the year appears to be a labor of love. They scour the world looking for influences to determine their color pick. Ultimately, their color choice will transition over into the worlds of fashion, beauty, design, and beyond.
Pantone describes emerald as, “A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance, and harmony.” The name emerald is derived from the gorgeous gemstone, which can range in tones from yellow-green to blue-green. It is the essence of money, power, and luxury. At last, the fashion term “jewel-tone” will be getting some love.
So bye-bye tangerine tango. It’s all about the greens in 2013. Don’t forget to celebrate your love of this color by purchasing products from the Sephora + Pantone Universe 2013 Color of the Year Collection. It will be available exclusively at Sephora in March 2013.
