Marc Jacobs Shameless Bold Blush in Rebellious

Availability: Sephora
Price: $30.00
Disclosures: PR Sample; Affiliate Link

Company’s Description

A vivid, silky blush in a stylish compact that delivers bold color and unprecedented vibrancy. Inspired by Marc’s tattoo, Shameless Bold Blush gives you permission to pursue all the wrongs that feel so right. Petite on the outside, but generous on the inside, this patented powder brings an unprecedented vibrancy to your cheeks. Unlike traditional powders, Shameless Bold Blush melds with your skin and enables you to sculpt perfect contours. The formula is infused with bio-lipids and essential amino acids, which create the powder’s ultra lightweight, silky texture and ensures a seamless application. Choose from shades of unexpected, unadulterated colors—all inspired by Marc’s bold spirit—to create a look that is powerful, lavish, and shameless.

Marc Jacobs’s new makeup line includes 9 different Shameless blush shades. This review is for the blush in Rebellious–a bright pink shade.
