Couple of months ago, I was invited to discover the journey of Marc Jacob’s Beauty. From brainstorming snippets to iconic bestsellers, it was a feast to the eyes and mind as we indulge in what goes behind the sleek packaging and expansive range. On top of that, we were treated to a showcase by Hung Vanngo as he introduces six brand new Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes – while discontinuing every single eye shadow prior to this range. All is not lost as these new babies are so dreamy, smooth and pigmented, you’ll get over the heartache before even realizing!
Out of the 6 palettes, I’ll be sharing two of these longwearing eyeshadow palettes. Each featuring 7 different finishes ranging from buttery matte velvet, shimmering satin, sparkling silk to metallic lamè (aka pop shade) for layering and creating dimension. The first being Edgitorial that I was already eyeing because of the shimmery gold in the middle! As you’ll soon notice, each palette is a good mix between neutral wearable shades and provocative pops, making it very well worth the moolahs and ideal for ladies who are always on the go.
Look at how intensive these green and gold colour schemes are, they gave me a swatchgasm! Pleather Python (a bright metallic gold with warm orangey finish) and Making a Scene (muted olive green with frosted shimmer finish) impressed me the most with its colour intensity and how buttery smooth the formula glides on my skin. I love how versatile this palette is as you can easily switch from a day-to-night eye look without much hassle; definitely a must-have for travelling!
If you like your eyeshadow palettes to contain 50 shades of purple, Frivoluxe will definitely be the one for you. An assortment of nude pink, violet and purple to mauve and taupe in different finishes; less exciting than the former palette but fail-proof I suppose. Thing is, no matter the colour scheme, you’re bound to find one for yourself. I have known a friend who was super excited for this palette as it satisfied her love for all things purple! For me, I’m currently eyeing Glambition next, to add on to my neutral brown collection.
Swatching Always was slightly tougher than the rest as the shade blends in beautifully into my skin, making it better off as a base shade that’s only obvious due to the sparkles that came along. Once again, when it comes to the colour payoff, the satin and metallic ones are always fares better – in this case, Who Has Time (a beautiful duochrome pewter) and How You Want (a dark purple with frosty pink undertones). Price-wise, you’ll be delighted to know that it is relatively cheaper than its predecessors at SGD$69 and are running low in stock. Check them out at Sephora before it’s too late! x
