Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hi Guys! What’s trending lately? There’s been a couple of new beauty releases, and they’re pretty much drool-worthy. Part of those releases are the eyeshadow palettes by Marc Jacobs. Oh, I know what you’re thinking, they’ve been on my watch list too. LOL, and guess what? they’re mostly sold out now. Yep, that’s how hot the Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes are ($49).

When I saw online that these are going be released soon, I wasn’t too smitten with them at first. For its price and the number of shades on the palette, I feel like you could probably get more bang for your buck with some other palettes. That is, until I set eyes on them at my local Sephora. I was like “those are really beautiful shades of eyeshadows”, even more so when I swatched them on my arms. Oh men, so pigmented, so soft, and what gorgeous packagings!

As you can see in the photos above, I brought home two palettes that I think might suit well with my dark almost-black hazel eyes. I love earthy neutral tones and some warm shades, so I picked Glambition and Scandalust. I know, they have such catchy names, right? Each palette came with a free sample of Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Eye Primer, which is awesome. I was contemplating whether I should get the Edgitorial shades or not, but in the end, I decided to skip on that for now. To be honest, there are lots of beautiful shades in each palette, but I’m pretty sure I couldn’t pull-off most of them, so here are the two beautiful shades I got.

720 Glambition – The shades in this particular palette probably has the most neutral sort of “Urban Decay Naked (1st) vibe” (reviewed HERE). It’s great to wear as an everyday eye makeup because it has a nice array of bronze, neutrals, and gold. You can never go wrong with this.

740 Scandalust – Gorgeous Dahling! Gorgeous! Has a bit of an Urban Decay Naked Heat vibe (seen HERE), due to the presence of the brick red shade, rusty browns, and mid-tone brown. This specific palette looks well-curated and very beautiful. It adds warmth, depth, and nice colors on the lid.

Three things that really stood out for these palettes; First, they’re well-pigmented both on the palette and upon application. They’re probably one of the few eyeshadows or eyeshadow palettes I’ve tried that truly deliver strong pigments at first swipe, using an eyeshader brush. In my experience, I swiped a shade on my lids more than twice and I already started looking like a raccoon. LOL. Some of those other very well-pigmented eyeshadow palettes are the Lorac Pro Palette (reviewed HEREAnastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette, and the Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette (seen HERE) to name a few. 

 

 

Second, these MJ Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes feel very fine, very soft, and almost creamy in their overall texture. Even though there are some glittery shades in each palette, I find that they have very minimal fall outs and they really adhere very well on the lids. Since these are so pigmented and long lasting, they’re also easy to work around the lids. You can pack the colors, layer them, or blend them more. They’re pretty much flexible to use.

 

Third, that sleek packaging is TDF. It may look elongated to you, but I actually like it because the mirror on these palettes is wide like the rearview of a car, which gives you enough visibility as to what’s happening with your eye game. They’re also easy to open, just push the little button in the middle and voila! Another thing I wanna point out is that the packaging is pretty flat which makes it so easy to pack. Take note of these in your next vacay soon.

They have incredible pigments, beautiful array of shades, luxurious packaging, and they’re easy to travel with. I definitely recommend these and they go very well when paired with Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner (reviewed HERE).

 

For sure it’s hard to pick just one of these palettes. The million dollah question is, which palette are you gonna get?

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme

Hello! Time now for a new lipstick review. Happy Friday all! But before welcome the weekend, let’s talk about the latest lipstick launch from Marc Jacobs. It’s the Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme. Now, a lot of people were excited about this, especially me. This lipstick is highly anticipated and currently garners a 4-point something stars in Sephora. Which means that this highly-rated liquid lipstick is most probably awesome. But… why don’t I feel exactly quite the same? Hmmm.

From the moment I saw this Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme from the front aisle of Sephora, I knew I needed to check this out. Yet something was holding me back. First, I really really want to think that this is going to be (finally!) MJ’s version of matte liquid lipsticks which are so popular nowadays, but perhaps retaining the usual MJ lipstick colors, especially the names. Second, if this is not matte, then this better need new colors. And lastly, this better be long-lasting like the lipstick version which I adore. Hmmm…

Much to my dismay, the Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme is not matte and yes it did retain a few colors from the Le Marc Lip Creme. Oh well, basically, it is the liquid version of Marc Jacobs’ very popular Lip Creme lipstick. It is not a bummer, it is just not what I expected or wanted. But, if you have tried the Lip Cremes, reviewed (HERE) then you know that they are one of the best long-lasting lipsticks out there, and they also have an amazing selection of wearable colors. The liquid version is no different at all.

I only picked one color (Truth Or Baremedium dusty rose pink) because the other color I liked is Slow Burn (creamy nude rose), which I already have in (solid) lipstick form. Although, I really really dig the array of colors that came with this line. But the Truth Or Bare shade makes the face look bright and not sallow. It has the right blend of nude, mauve, and pink.

To sum it all up, if you want a long-lasting reliable liquid lipstick that has a very good color payoff, with a wearable selection of shades to choose from, then you cannot go wrong with this Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme by Marc Jacobs.

But the million-dollar question, when is MJ going to make a matte liquid lipstick? Hopefully soon…

 

T.G.I.F Y’all!
