Marc Jacobs Beauty Makeup Gift Sets - Object of Desire, Up All Night, About Last Night

Every year, holiday makeup collections across brands carry a similar theme - dark red or plum lips, glosses, shimmer, and sparkles.  While that holds true this year too, there's another welcome trend I have noticed, and that's coming up with more palettes, lip-cheek-eye combinations with beautiful packaging, as well as a lot of mini-sized lipsticks and eyeliners.  The Marc Jacob Beauty holiday makeup collection - About Last Night - features quite a few of such palettes, all in shiny gold and pink packaging.  Here's a look at some of the pieces from this collection.  First up is the Object of Desire Face and Eye Palette (photo above).  The palette is housed in a tasseled gold pouch and includes O!Mega Bronzer in the shade Tantric, a blush (Exhibitionist), and 6 eyeshadows (Lights On, Candlelight, Dimmer, Violet Hour, Twilight, and In the Dark).

The eyeshadows in the palette are perfect for creating soft neutral looks as well darker smokey eye looks.  They are reasonably pigmented and should work great over a primer/base.  Overall though, the colors don't stand out much for my skin tone.

Next up in the holiday collection is the Up All Night 5-piece set of petite Le Marc Lip Cremes.  These lipsticks have a creamy matte finish and a lightweight formula.  There is a nice mix of colors here with neutrals/nudes as well as darker shades.  This set too comes packaged in a tasseled pouch, a metallic pink one.

The Style Eye-Con No. 20 eyeshadow palette - About Last Night - is my favorite among the holiday offerings.  This came out a while back, but it would make a great holiday gift, so I am adding it here.  This huge palette comes with 20 shades, all housed in a large gold case.  From warm browns to dark charcoal greys, and shimmers and mattes, this palette has a great mix of shades and formula, and the quality of the eyshadows is very good.  Almost all the eyeshadows are pigmented, smooth, and seem quite easy to blend.

Among the pieces I have tried from the Marc Jacobs holiday makeup range, my favorites are the Lip Creme set and the Style Eye-Con eyeshadow palette.  There are also eyeliner sets, with a couple of the Marc Jacobs gel eyeliner pencils, and I am sure those would be a great pick too.  They would make perfect gifts (also because of the pretty packaging) but also are great if, like me, you like to try out smaller-sized products.
