A few weeks ago, I featured Marc Jacobs Beauty on my Monday Covet List. Sold exclusively at Sephora, the line encompasses his trademark mix of youth, confidence and experimentation. With hues inspired by couture and embodied in sleekly designed cases (with the calling card: MARC JACOBS emblazoned across the collection), the products are the epitome of covet-worthiness.
Well, as it turns out, the beautiful thing about the Internet is that sometimes, your Fairy Godmother appears when you least expect it. And my Fairy Godmother’s name is Sephora. She read my Monday Covet List, and decided that I shouldn’t simply covet the items from afar. Hence, a chariot arrived (we’ll call it UPS) and presented me with gorgeous pieces from the Marc Jacobs Beauty collection.
(Will somebody please tell me when it’s midnight? I don’t want this fairy tale to end.)
But once I received the products, I realized that I had an interesting conundrum on my hands. You see, the items are so stunning, so breathtaking, I simply cannot bear to – gasp – use them. Instead, I’ve been appreciating their sheer and utter beauty with a reverence normally reserved for Crown jewels. And I *may* have reorganized my entire bathroom vanity to showcase the cosmetics in all their splendour and glory.
Alas! The items are begging to be swatched and sampled; whispering promises of rich, sumptuous colour, instant color payoff and long-lasting plush performance. And I’ll do it. I’ll review them the way they’re meant to be reviewed. But in the meantime, can we all just pause for a moment to appreciate the sublime artistry?
