Review: Marc Jacobs Eye-conic Palette

Who doesn’t love a good palette?! I was so excited to receive this complimentary Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette by Marc Jacobs Beauty; even more excited when I opened up the box to see that I had been gifted the Glambition palette (one of the six palette options), which is packed with shades of bare and bronze, from soft champagne to deep brick.

Each palette contains 7 shades with 4 distinct finishes including velvet (soft + matte), satin (shimmer), silk (sparkling), and lame (metallic), allowing for endless looks when you layer and blend to customize. All of the shadows have a buttery soft feel, which is definitely attribute to the eye for style held by the Marc Jacobs brand. Marc, himself, is known for his meticulous style, often making last minute adjustments before he sends a look down the runway, and these palettes were inspired by textiles and layering such as you would see in a runway show.

Long-lasting and buildable are a few key words I need to throw out there. I always recommend a primer with any eye look, but even on their own these shadows hold up with minimal creasing. They are also buildable, so you can apply a subtle wash of color to your lid or layer on the pigment for a more dramatic impact. Along with being buildable, these colors are also blendable, which is so important when creating seamless custom looks. I’ve swatched the colors in this palette, just so you get an idea of the payout they give with just one swipe. Just look at how deep and rich that darkest brown is, and how beautiful that champagne shade would also be as a highlight:

Something else that I thought was such a special detail with these palettes is that when you read the color names from left to right you get a little poem: “She was infamous; known for seeking the most over the top glamour”. I mean, how unique is that! I need to actually go back and read what each palette says now.

The eye-conic palette retails for 49$, so it’s right in line with other prestige brands, and you can shop them at marcjacobsbeauty.com, Sephora, Neiman Marcus, and Net-A-Porter. I can’t wait to transition this palette from summer to fall as the colors are so timeless and versatile. Have you tried any of the eye-conic palettes? If not, what palettes are you loving right now??
