Marc Jacobs reformulated his eyeshadows and release six new never before seen palettes called the Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes. I really liked his old eyeshadow palettes but I can tell that the new palettes are even better. The design of the Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes is the same but the quality and the formula of the eyeshadows is on another level.
Like I mentioned before, there are six new eyeshadow palettes in the line:
Glambition – Which is the more neutral palette from the line (bare and bronze).
Scandalust – A warm toned palette featuring rust and warm toned browns
Edgitorial – Cooler tones with camouflage and reflective gold
Provocouture – Has dusty plums and magenta shade for a pop of color
Frivoluxe – Cool toned greige shades and violet
Smartorial – grey, icy teal and a beautiful cobalt shade
The Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes come with seven shades and four different finishes. You get velvet, satin, silk and lame which are meant for layering and dressing the eyes.
I feel like every palette has the right amount of matte vs shimmery shades. The matte shades that you get are shades that are usually used as a crease or transition shades but also for deepening the crease. Also who thought of the names of the shades is a genius! When combining the shade names, you get a sentence that is connected to the actual name of the eyeshadow palette. How cool is that?
The texture of the eyeshadows is like touching silk or velvet. They feel super smooth to the touch no matter the finish. They are also very pigmented and swatch well with both fingers and brush. The brush picks up product immediately so there is no need of swirling the brush, I just touch the pan gently and get enough pigment to work with. It’s always better to build the shade than to go in with heavy pigment which you have to blend a lot in order to look well blended.

I always do the arm swatches on bare skin so we have an idea how the eyeshadows perform without a primer. On the eyes, I always use a primer just because I feel that a primer makes the eyeshadows pop even more.
Every eyeshadow palette performs beautifully on the eyes so it all comes to a shade preference. I feel like Marc Jacobs did a great job in creating palettes with shades that you don’t usually find in other brands but are still wearable. I genuinely like the combination of the shades in every palette.
There is a neutral shade in all palettes that I like to use as transition shades but also for creating simple everyday looks. The metallic shades are of course gorgeous. They apply well with a brush but if you want an almost wet look, you can also use a damp brush for application.
There really is not a bad thing I can say about the palettes. It is so rare to find a whole line of eyeshadow palettes that is so consistent with the quality of both matte and shimmery shades but Marc Jacobs did it.
When it comes to picking favorites of course I love both Glambiton and Scandalust since they are more neutral. But I was also surprised by how much I love the shade selection in Edgitorial. I always gravitate towards warm neutrals, but that palette looks amazing on my brown eyes and I think the shades are wearable enough for a neutral lover like me.
Marc Jacobs also released a new Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Eye Primer and also added three eyeshadow brushes to his brush line. The Shadow Brush which is great for packing eyeshadow on the lid but also blending. The Smudge Brush, perfect for applying and blending color on the lower lash line but also smudging eyeliner. The Crease Brush, a pointed tip eyeshadow brush which is great for crease color application and blending.
The Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Eye Primer is a beige colored primer that is formulated with coconut extracts to lock in color for 12h. I used the primer with the palettes and I found that it worked really well as a base. It has enough color so it cancels any veins that I have on my eyes and leaves me with a blank canvas to work on.
The new Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes are available on Sephora and marcjacobsbeauty.com and they are priced at $49. The palettes are definitely one of my favorite release from the brand and I think are worth checking out.
