Coconuts always bring to mind images of a tropical vacation complete with sunny beaches and a salty ocean breeze. And while we know fresh coconut juice will definitely quench our thirst on a hot, sunny afternoon, what about having coconut in our beauty products? Well, thanks to its hydrating properties and its lush creamy scent, coconuts are widely used in skincare and makeup.
If you’re a lover of all things coconut, you’ll go (coco)nuts over this amazing drop from Marc Jacobs Beauty – Coconut Glow Collection.
Get ready to hydrate your skin and glow to coconut perfection with products in this summer range. Only four products here but they are all you need for that beautifully bronzed and glowy complexion.
Smooth your skin and instantly create an impeccable base before you start your makeup with the Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer. With a watery light texture, the primer brings you instant hydration while it perfects and extends makeup wear. The nutrient-rich formula, enriched with concentrated coconut extracts, form a natural, vitamin-rich barrier between your skin and makeup to create a smooth and improved skin surface before you put on your foundation.
- Concentrated coconut: formulated with five forms of coconut including cold-pressed coconut water, juice and pulp
- Polysaccharide perfection: the coconut water-derived polysaccharide complex duplicates the effect of synthetic priming ingredients, allowing skin to breathe without compromising the skin-perfecting benefits
I like that it makes my skin appear healthier and fresher but it also makes my skin seem very oily right after I apply. It doesn’t really dry down but interestingly, I find that with this primer, my skin does not oil up easily above my foundation.
Obtain a sun-kissed complexion with the O!Mega Bronze Perfect Tan in Tan Tastic 104! This super-sized bronzer, in a universally flattering shade, beautifies with the touch of a brush. The bronzing powder, micro-fine and jet-milled, blends seamlessly with a matte finish.
A little goes a long way so tap away excess before you apply onto your skin. I love the shade because it’s not too orange for my skin, but I really didn’t enjoy the large compact because it’s not convenient to bring around for touch-ups. Though it’s perfect for body bronzing, but I know it’s going to be staying at home and not travelling with me for sure.
To apply the bronzer, it is recommended that you use The Bronze, Limited Edition – Bronzer Brush. Feather-soft and extra-large, this bronzer brush has an innovative, extra-wide design that perfectly pairs with O!Mega Bronze.
Even though this luxurious and generously-sized brush was designed for fast application, I still prefer my regular flat top tapered brush for precise application. If you need a quick all-over bronze, then this is for you. I do like the limited edition white handle though for it stands out from all my regular pink ferruled brushes.
This season, we’re focusing so much on highlights and strobing that we’re going gaga over every highlighting powder sprouting in Sephora now. We have so many highlighting products in the market, what will you choose? Why not give your highlight a shot of skincare with the Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter? Inspired by Marc Jacobs’s love of coconut water and the glow of youthful, radiant, well-hydrated skin, the gel highlighter was created to light up your complexion with a just one stroke.
Formulated into a sensual golden-peach hue, this highlight flatters all skin tones, injecting into your skin a slight warm glow. I love using it directly by dabbing onto the high points of my cheeks. As it dries down pretty fast, you need to work it in quickly for a seamless blend. You may choose to mix this concentrated luminiser with foundation or primer to transform them into illuminating elixirs too. I personally haven’t tried that because I still like my matte foundation finish, but I will try it, soon!
As mentioned, this highlighting gel-cream possesses impressive skincare qualities. The five forms of coconut and pro-vitamin B5 help hydrate and nourish your skin while you glisten. However you like your glow, dew drops allow you to customise and it simply delivers. Oh, and it can also be used as a brightening eyeshadow shade too! Love it!
As usual, here are shots of how I used the products! Notice how glowy my skin looks? Thanks to the primer!
