2013 Holiday Beauty Gift Pick - Marc Jacobs Beauty The Showstopper 7-Piece Holiday Set

Marc Jacobs has certainly made a splash this year with his new cosmetics line.  

And if you were wondering if there was a way you could try multiple products in a budget-friendly way - here it is with a rubberized-leather look that has a expensive feel to it .

Marc Jacobs Beauty The Showstopper 7-Piece Holiday Set contains 4 full sized products from his beauty line, and 1 mini roller-ball fragrance, Honey - along with a travel mirror in a very roomy, modern black travel case.

The products picked for this gift set are a perfect introduction to Marc Jacobs line.  Let's start with the Style Eye-Con No. 3 in The Star:  This eye shadow trio contains a matte beige, shimmery deep steel grey and shimmery gold shadow.  They are all smooth, creamy and easy to blend.  The gold is perfect for holiday/party looks and can be layered for more intensity.  All three colors work beautifully together, or alone.

The Lash Lifter Gel Mascara is deep black is great for basic length and gives a enhanced "natural" look with about 2 coats. It separates well and there's no clumping or flaking.

The Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl in Kiss This lip gloss is a pretty cherry red, perfect for lots of different skin tones. It has a good amount of pigment, so it's not super sheer, but not as opaque as a full lipstick or stain.  It's lightweight and moisturizing without being sticky.

The Magic Marc’er Precision Pen eyeliner is great for drawing that perfect cat eye.  It's necessary to work fairly quickly, as the ink does set within about a minute or so.  It does last all day without budging or smudging.

The Mini Rollerball in Honey Eau de Parfum starts off quite sweet, but settles into a nice blend of florals and warmer sweet notes later on.  It's a nice change of pace for a fragrance and different from his other scents.

There's also a travel mirror, which is not attached, but instead is stored in a pocket on the side of the bag.

This is one set the beauty lover in your life (or you if you're in need of a holiday beauty fix) will LOVE. - RLB
