A seven-piece holiday gift set.

Been wanting to buy something from the Marc Jacobs makeup line—but shied away because of the prices? Well, now's your chance to check out some of the most popular items at a deep discount, thanks to this limited-edition makeup bag filled with six different pieces of MJ goodness. (Consider this gift guide not only for other people, but also for YOU!)

Marc Jacobs Beauty The Showstopper 7-Piece Holiday Set

Here's the math. The products are a US$216.00/C$261.00 value, but you only pay US$89.00/C$107.00.

First things first, you get a very chic makeup bag embossed with the Marc Jacobs logo. It's a good size and appears very durable, too—the zipper is great quality. I took this pic so you can see it a bit better:

Tucked into the back pocket is a little mirror, again with the Marc Jacobs logo and an adorb little plastic ribbon pull:

And then inside, you get:

  • Marc Jacobs Beauty Lash Lifter Gel Mascara in Blacquer
  • Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No. 3 in The Star
  • Marc Jacobs Beauty Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl in Kiss This
  • Marc Jacobs Beauty Magic Marc’er Precision Pen in Blacquer
  • Marc Jacobs Mini Rollerball in Honey Eau de Parfum

The mascara, eyeshadow palette, lip gloss and liquid liner are all FULL size. I particularly like the lip gloss, as it's a moisturizing texture, smells delish and the shade is a sheer red with a bit of sparkle—it's very pretty and anyone could wear it. (See my original review of the Lip Vinyl here.)

Same thing goes for the eyeshadows; they're sparkly but still nice and neutral. You get a shimmery champagne that really could be an everyday go-to shade, and then a charcoal and a gold. Here's a closer look at the shades:

As for the liquid liner, I'm a fan (you can read my thoughts on that in this review). And Honey is the newest Marc Jacobs scent, here in a handy rollerball format... it's always great to have portable fragrance for the purse.
