This post was anticipated due to the current Sephora Surprise Sale for Black Friday, because one of these items is currently 30% off.
I missed out on Marc Jacobs’ holiday makeup collection last year, so when I read that the brand was coming out with the See-quins Glam Glitter eyeshadows again I jumped on it as fast as the first Sephora sale would allow me. I managed to refrain myself and got only one colour, Pop Rox.
Fast forward a month or so, and they launch, still as part of the holiday collection, a new highlighter, the (it’s a mouthful) O!Mega Glaze All-Over Foil Luminizer in Jet Girl. They had already released a highlighter at the same time as the See-quins Glam Glitter shadows, Showstopper, and it didn’t get the best reviews – less luminosity and more glitter, in short. I took the advise of beauty reviewers out there and didn’t got that one. This new highlighter though, is redemption in luminous form.
Here are reviews and swatches:

I think making the bed in the morning is the most useless and ridiculous chore.
I associate colours to vowels and numbers. Sometimes I can remember a name or date just by the colours I remember them having.

First world problems aside, I hope I’ve caught your attention with the overdramatic tittle, because theses pieces are actually something that you don’t see often listed in articles about building a minimalist/capsule/insert_basic_word_here wardrobe.

It’s been a while since I’ve been so into a holiday collection to want to buy multiple products from it. I actually got these as soon as they came out, in fear they would sell out, but only got around to post about them now. Is this still relevant? Am I still on time?
You have to give me a break people, my kitchen is in shambles. Pre-Christmas construction work. Fun.
Planning a wedding, renovations in our home, on top of the budget closing, objective fulfilling, end-of-the-year season at my job: it’s been stressful. And I’ve been well behaved. Soooo I got myself a few treats. The two face palettes because I couldn’t decide between them and an extra highlighter because it was pretty and shinny.

First morning in Istanbul. I was woken up at 5 am with the sound of the prayer echoing through the city. There were several speakers, on minarets from multiples mosques, projecting the chant like a powerful choir.

I’m someone who prides herself in wearing everything they buy. Things don’t get forgotten. I have a lot of stuff – queue the sad violin my fiancé is playing after getting his space cut in half to make room for my 5 giant wardrobes I brought in when we moved in together.
And yet, my conscience is clear, because I’m not taking up space wastefully – I wear everything in my closet. Regularly.
Except for this.

So Sephora speaks American English. Even in European stores. I’m gonna shut up before saying anything too politically incorrect over the lack of an “u” in the product name and show you what you came here for.
This won’t be an in-depth review as I haven’t tested these products fully, but more of an insight of what you get with this set, and if it’s worth it. The regular price is 32,60 euros but I purchased it with 20% off.
