I recently tried out a few new Beauty products from Marc Jacobs – although I have tried these before and love them but not in these shades and in this particular way.

They have launched a new lash primer to partner up with the already popular (and one of my favorite mascara’s) Velvet Noir Mascara. It’s called the Velvet Primer and its a conditioning base that’s good for your lashes but also helps enhance the look of the Velvet Noir Mascara if applied first. I’ve been using it for the last couple of weeks and I love how exaggerated it makes the lashes look if used before Velvet Noir Mascara. You have to be careful with how much you apply – I would recommend just one coat of the primer and then one to two coats of Velvet Noir Mascara.

The other new product I’m loving from them is the Eye-Conic Multi Finish Eyeshadow Palette. I generally love the Marc Jacobs Beauty palettes because it’s sleek and easy to travel with and has more product than unnecessary packaging. This particular palette is called Steel(etto) and it’s a mix of Taupe, Beige and Glitter shades that all compliment one another. You can easily create a subtle day look and add the Sparkling shade to take through to evening.
