Sorry I haven’t posted any reviews in a few weeks, I’ve gotten a second job for summer (my student loan and credit card won’t pay itself, but one can dream!). I’ve been working every single day, sometimes doubles. A girl’s gotta do what a girls gotta do. Today however, I’m bringing you my complete review of the oh-so-coveted Marc Jacobs Tan-tastic O!mega Coconut Bronzer!
I managed to get my hands on this during the VIB Rouge Sale at Sephora (see my giant haul here) for $59CAD. This product kept going in stock, then selling out, then sometimes was in stock miraculously, then sold out again. When I placed my order I was one of the lucky people to add it to my cart. This product was “limited-edition“, but you know how that goes these days (*cough* BECCA and Too Faced- we see you!)….I wouldn’t be surprised if they did a second run.
The frenzy around this bronzer was largely in part to it’s sleek white packaging and coconut fragrance, but also because you get a whopping 25grams of product! To contrast, Nars’ Laguna Bronzer is only 10grams for $52CAD and Too Faced’s Chocolate Soleil is only 8grams for $39CAD. Are companies ripping us off?!! Yep.
-Sexy ass packaging
-Neutral shade (not too warm, not too cool)
-Blends like a dream
-Very pigmented (be careful!)
-Smells lovely but not over the top
-Can look muddy if you apply too much at once
-Product is very large so it’s hard to store
IM IN LOVE. BTW, I haven’t ranked a product 5/5 in god knows how long, so that’s saying something.
This bronzer is everything! I used to think Nars Laguna was the best thing to happen to me, but F that. This blows that out of the park! I love love love this. The pan size is massive so you can use as big of a bronzer brush as you want, it blends so effortlessly and makes me look liked I’ve been out in the sun without looking fake and orange.
This shade looks a bit warm in certain lighting, but I’m fair skinned at the moment and find this bronzer to work perfectly on my skin. It is NOT shimmery whatsoever either, so you don’t have to worry about exaggerating textured skin. The upfront cost is steep at $59CAD, but you get 2.5x the product of most bronzers on the market! There’s just something about the formula and shade, it’s literally the “perfect tan” just like they claim.
I LOVE THIS! If it ever comes back in stock or you find it online, BUY IT.
