A self-proclaimed fashion and beauty shopaholic, I knew I would be in for a mid-week treat when I was invited to the exclusive breakfast preview of the hugely anticipated launch of Marc Jacobs Beauty at Harvey Nichols.
Bright and early, I arrived at The Victoria Quarter before the doors opened to ‘Harvey Nics’ shoppers and was escorted upstairs to the luxurious 4th floor Bottle Room. Here, I was warmly welcomed by the Marc Jacobs team and a glamourous bunch of beauty bloggers all sat at a charmingly set table filled with yummy breakfast goodies.
Whilst trying to avoid the scrumptious pain au chocolats (unsuccessfully!) the Marc Jacobs team chatted through the new collection which was scattered throughout the table setting and displayed proudly in clear glass cabinets.
Loved and used by brand devotees and professional make-up artists all over the world, the complete Marc Jacobs Beauty collection including award-winning products such as Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara and Highliner Gel Eye Crayon, have now taken up a permanent new residence in all Harvey Nichols stores and online from October.
Additionally, Marc’s creativity and playfulness has expressed itself in an exclusive ‘Leopard Frost’ collection; a limited edition and globally exclusive range, only available at Harvey Nichols from October to December. Kate Moss’s daughter, Lila Grace, also makes her mark on the modelling world being announced as the new face of the collection. Frost eye pallets and metallic shades are perfect in the run up to the Christmas party season and for someone who adores animal print, each product comes in a stylish covetable leopard print case which make it bang on trend and a perfect gift for under the Christmas tree!
After finishing off my coffee (and pastry!) the team invited us downstairs to reveal the new makeup counter where I was lucky enough to get my hot little hands on some samples- my ultimate fave being the Marc Lip Frost lipstick (£25) which delivers high-impact metallic shine, imparting ultimate long-lasting colour and moisturised lips which feel instantly plumped whilst providing 10 hours of wear!
It’s obvious that Marc Jacob has put every essence of his uniqueness and rule breaking creativity into this brand and Harvey Nichols continued commitment to service, fashion, trend, and quality makes them an ideal partner. Make sure to check it out- I will be back to extend my collection for sure!
