The Coconut Fantasy collection is here to make all your summer makeup dreams come true with gorgeous formulas, plus a brand new eyeshadow palette

Ahh, the humble coconut. How do we love thee? Too many ways to count. This ubiquitous fruit comes through with its versatility and benefits once again as Marc Jacobs Beauty drops another coconut-infused collection for summer following every beauty addict's mad craving for the stuff when it launched last year. A new limited edition lineup for this summer that works the ever-trending rose gold look, the 4-piece edit is everything you need for glowy skin and smouldering eyes.

To start, a must-have is the new Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter, which makes a comeback in a rose gold hue. If you're a big fan of the original, you'll know it for its beautiful gel-cream texture and luminosity that immediately lit up complexions. Plus it was also great for mixing into foundation or primer to get just a hint of glow. This same buildable formulation and two-way wear are exactly what's bottled into the Fantasy edition, with five forms of coconut and pro-vitamin B5 to help hydrate and nourish skin so you can keep on glowing all through summer. Further boosting you in the super skin department is a new invisible coconut setting powder that's inspired by the ultimate vacay filter. Made with cocoa butter for a seamless, creamy finish that melts into skin, dusting some of this on will blur imperfections and set your base for the entire day.


Of course, there's no skipping bronzing. The O! Mega Bronzer makes a return as well in the same universal shade to help you fake the perfect tan, and its super-sized compact means you can go crazy with it all over your body. And once you're sufficiently glowy and bronzy, it's time to work the smoulder for your eyes using the new Fantascene eyeshadow palette that comes in a mix of sensual nudes and pops of red-toned colours. These all-new shades come in matte velvet, shimmering satin and metallic lamé finishes to let you create eye looks that are as sizzling as they are yummy with its distinct coconut scent. Talk about heating things up.


The limited edition Marc Jacobs Beauty Coconut Fantasy collection is available at all Sephora stores, $69 each
