Marc Jacobs Beauty have recently brought out 6 new eyeshadow palettes and they are WOW! Each palette has a different colour scheme of 7 eyeshadows in it. And they are all beautiful colours I have to add:) The line is called the Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette. Whoever came up with the palette names is a genius, all the palettes have the most unique, original and fun names I have come across! I love this new eyeshadow line by Marc Jacobs Beauty and I’m sure you will too:)
About the Palettes
There are 6 new palettes each with a different colour scheme. Each palette has 4 fashion finishes, velvet, satin, silk and lame. If you aren’t familiar with lame, it is a pop shade to add on top as a finishing touch. The packaging is the same for all of them. I’m obsessed with the packaging, it’s classy and sleek which is what I would expect from luxury makeup like Marc Jacobs Beauty!
The eyeshadows retail for £39 and each eyeshadow palette has 7 colours which comes to about £5.60 a colour.
If you love pink and purple eyeshadows then this is the palette for you. It comes with a beautiful selection of dusty plum and magenta colours. Provocouture has 4 matte shadows and 3 shimmer ones.
This palette has the most neutral shades from all the palettes, so naturally it’s my favourite one! It is also the best for an everyday quick look. Glambition comes with 3 matte shades, 3 shimmers, a light highlight which is perfect for highlighting the inner corners.
This palette is made up of warm browns with a splash of scarlet. The colour combination is perfect for autumn, it makes me think of leaves and cozy evenings! This palette is a fave among many people. If you love the colour combination, then you’ll love this palette because each shadow is highly pigmented with very little fallout. There’s 3 shimmers and 4 mattes in Scandalust.
This palette is exactly as it sounds. It depicts smart and elegant with the royal blue and beige/gold combination. There are only 2 mattes and the rest are all shimmers.
Frivolous is a fabulous palette of purple colours with a dash of glitter and pink. This is my least favourite colour combination and I found the shadows didn’t blend as well as some of the other palettes. It comes with 4 shimmers and 3 mattes.
Edgitorial palette comes with a combination of warmer and cooler shades. There are 4 shimmer shades and 3 matte. This palette has a brilliant gold colour which honestly, I have never seen a gold colour swatch as well as this one.
Using the eyeshadows
The colours are all highly pigmented, ultra soft and they are so easy to blend with the most textural finishes. The matte finishes are extremely powdery so when using them, dab the brush lightly and you will still get plenty of powder on the brush. A few of the glitter shadows I found to be a bit too loose and dry with quite a bit of fallout. I would recommend wetting the brush to avoid that. Each palette has a colour or 2 that doesn’t apply as nicely as it should. Either not pigmented enough or simply hard to blend.
For the most part however, they are very high quality and you can feel that when using them! When wearing these eyeshadows they remained intact for about 8 hours.
These palettes are all beautiful and there is one for every season and for every mood! You can’t go wrong with any of them. And naturally, like all Marc Jacobs Beauty products the Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette collection are of the highest, most classiest quality and design. The obvious downside to these eyeshadows is the price. There are loads of cheaper palettes with more eyeshadows on the market. However, these palettes are amazing for traveling with, they are not at all bulky and you can slip it into your handbag without it taking up much space!
