Well, this is fabulous! Marc Jacobs has re-emerged at Harvey Nichols and come in with a leopard print splash in the form of the limited edition Leopard Frost collection. As you can see, it’s all about the trend pattern of the season so even if you can’t bear to slip into something animal-print, you can at least immerse this way. But wait.. it gets better…
Lipsticks, too! So, if palette fatigue has overtaken you, there’s still the lip option. Leopard isn’t new territory for beauty – D&G explored it a couple of years ago and of course, Dior’s Mitzah palette of 2011 – but as with fashion, it needs to be handled carefully. So, the boxes aren’t printed, they’re just the standard black and white packaging which makes it all the better when out slips this pattern.
There are 5 metallic sheen lipsticks – this one is Peachy Keen, a golden orange shade. I’m never sure how I feel about metallic orange lips – there’s a lot of room for error there both in tone and finish, but I’m immediately in love with the palette.
If you remember, MJ palette names always tell a story so starting left to right it’s: Hey Girl Hey, You Slay, On The Runway, Serving Up, Eleganza, Extravaganza, For Your Life. Marc Jacobs palettes have become firm favourites for me because of their consistent quality both in terms of pigment and texture. The last two shades are matte but the rest are frosted.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
There isn’t a shade in the palette that I wouldn’t wear although I see that it is probably more for warm tones than cool. I’m excited to start playing about with it properly and putting that beautiful pink bronze shade, You Slay, as a liner under my lower lashes. If you fancy the look of the lipsticks, they’re £25 HERE, The palette is £39 HERE. The Leopard Frost Collection is a global exclusive so Harvey Nicks is the only place that it’s available at the moment which means that there will be extra demand.
