A few weeks ago I got an invitation to the VIP preview flash sale for Marc Jacobs Beauty and was able to grab this eyeshadow palette before everything sold out. The full name is Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Shadow Palette and this color is 204 The Starlet.
The palette is composed of seven shimmery, slightly sparkly eyeshadows in neutral colors. The colors are highly pigmented and have a smooth texture. Have I mentioned that they’re shimmery? Very, very shimmery. Mind the fallout when you use a brush (don’t use the little sponge applicator that’s included) or you’ll end up with little sparkles everywhere.
The individual colors are numbered 1 through 7 and are shown on my arm from left to right. I tried a simple, easy look over the weekend with colors 1 and 2. I used 3 and 6 to accent. Surprisingly, my favorites are the light purples and the pale champagne gold. Normally I go for pinks and browns.
I was able to purchase the palette for $42 (down from $59) due to the flash sale, but it’s definitely worth the full price. The Urban Decay Naked Palette has a serious contender for its place as my favorite of the past two years.
Marc Jacobs beauty will be available on August 9th (nail polish! give me the nail polish!). View the full collection on Fashionista.
