I know it's some sort of unwritten rule that women are supposed to go gaga for everything Marc Jacobs does, but lately he's been turning out one stinker after another. I miss the quirky, nerdy Marc of yesteryear — the kind of designer who'd come up with something kooky and fun. Something like this collection of beauty accessories, actually.
After launching Daisy Marc Jacobs last year, he (okay, more accurately, his design team) has come up with a fresh, fun collection of beauty gear available exclusively at Sephora. The slightly retro floral design reminds me of something a cool girl in 1963 might have carried. Could this be a return to the days of Dorky Marc? My fingers are crossed.
To find out about each piece in the collection,
Daisy Marc Jacobs Pour Sephora Treasure Beauty Case ($50) has a daisy on top, embossed logo, and dividers to store all of your goodies.Daisy Marc Jacobs Pour Sephora Pretty Pouch Trio ($38) features three metallic gold cosmetics bags.Daisy Marc Jacobs Pour Sephora Cushy Brush Set ($70) is cushy indeed. I love the way it looks, but I'd need to see the brushes to know if the set is reasonably priced.Daisy Marc Jacobs Pour Sephora Luxe Vanity Case ($90) is my favorite. (Of course I like the most expensive thing. Ugh.) This fold-out case features two drawers, three trays, and two foldout pockets in the front. Daisy Marc Jacobs Pour Sephora Soap Trio Delight ($15) is a set of three soaps. They're cute, but after they're wet, they won't look as cute.
