Marc Jacobs Beauty Remedy Concealer Pen

Marc Jacobs Remedy Concealer Pen

Like Nothing I have Ever Used!

I was so ecstatic when Marc Jacobs Launched his makeup line. I have been a big fan of him and his clothing lines for about the last 6 years. There have been many designers in the past that have launched makeup lines and I was excited because it was a new makeup brand to check out, but not as excited as I was for this one. Something told me it was going to be beyond good, possibly Epic! I had a feeling that he would not just launch a line to launch a line, and that it would be truly reMARCable!

I bought about 6 products the day the line was launched (#marcthemoment) and I have been very tempted to go back for more. I was not sure if I was going to blog on all 6 products that I got the day of the launch or do them each separately. I decided after using them now for a good amount of time that each and everyone of them deserved their own post. So the first post is going to be on the Remedy Pen.

The "Pen" Standing Up!

When I went to the #marcthemoment launch party at Sephora, they did my makeup with the entire line and used the pen on me. I was amazed at how well it worked at the fist use. I was sold after looking in the mirror before the makeup artist even started the pen on my second eye. I could't get over how much more awake my one looked and believe me, I've been around the makeup world, and I don't fall for a lot of the tricks that some can do to make your eye look more awake.

Here is the Skinny on the Remedy Pen from Sephora:

What it is:
An all-in-one eraser, brightener, and corrector to remedy the signs of aging, dehydration, and fatigue.
What it does:
One of Marc’s favorite products, Remedy Concealer Pen is the perfect fix for the sins of a carefree youth or just the aftermath of last night. Formulated with advanced pigments, powerful antioxidants, and Remedy Complex™—a unique blend of hydrating and antiaging ingredients—this next-generation concealer brightens, hydrates, and soothes the skin while providing the coverage you need for a fresh, bright-eyed finish. The patented palladium applicator cools on contact to reduce puffiness and one click is all it takes for the perfect amount of product. Boy tested. Girl approved.
What else you need to know:
The two universal brightening and correcting shades flatter all skintones, while the versatile shade range complements most skintones.
-Remedy Complex Technology with Theine (Caffeine), Collagen, Vitamin Extracts, and Coconut Water: Nourishing and corrective ingredients. 

It does it all!!

I am obsessed with this pen because you can see the results immediately. The Sephora Makeup Artist showed me how to use it by using one pump on each eye and gently circling the pen's applicator around below the eye to conceal, brighter and depuff. Basically the applicator works on contact to reduce the puffiness by gently circling around the delicate eye area and the color that comes out of the pen works to conceal and brighten. After I circle it around each eye for a minute, I gently pat the excess in. If there is any extra, I even dab it over my top lip up to my brow. I just make sure to not get any in my eyes, as I would do with any product. The results are truly Amazing. I really wish I had a picture to show one eye compared to another. Perhaps I will do that the next time I use the pen and I will update the post with the comparison. It is something to see!! I don't use it everyday, just on the days where I need that extra boost of looking awake or if I am going out somewhere special. I do not see any reason why you could not use it everyday, I would if I did not have a budget.

The patented palladium applicator! 

It has a window on the side to show you when
you are getting low and need to repurchase!

Final Thoughts:
This Pen is Truly ReMARCable. I really don't know what else to say. I honestly think that is one of the most innovative makeup products that I have bought in a very long time. I hope to impress you with the rest of the line I purchased and post on!
