Marc Jacobs O!Mega Perfect Tan Coconut Bronzer Review

Hi beauties!

 

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!

THE DEETS:

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.

THE PROS:

-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

 

THE CONS:

-Can look muddy if you apply too much at once

-Product is very large so it’s hard to store

THE VERDICT:

5/5

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.

  1. Uhhh looks beautiful! Been searching for a new one since the bronzer I usually use looks very muddy sometimes, no matter if I apply too little or too much…

      1. I have the Too Faced Grand Hotel Café so I use the bronzer that comes in it but it is soooo patchy :/ I use the Soleil Tan de Chanel afterwards just to cover up some empty spots that the other one leaves but I can’t use the Chanel one just by itself cause it’s too warm on me…
        I love the colour on the Too Faced one but can’t stand the patchiness

        1. Ugh isn’t that awful!! I hate patchy products. The too faced bronzer is usually great so they must have skimped on quality with that palette. I have way less faith in holiday value sets these days. xo J
