I want to bring you my review of the Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette by the eminent and so much worshiped by me makeup brand Marc Jacobs Beauty. This is a fantastic palette that I’m in love with! The packaging, eyeshadow quality, shades and everything is just perfect!
So I guess that's enough praises and let’s pass over to the review of the eyeshadows. I have my palette in the color #710 Provocouture. It’s a seven-colored eyeshadow palette which houses the shades from pink-lilac to magenta colors. Also the products are different in finishes as they are metallic, satin, pearl, matte and duochrome. The shades have nice pigmentation and excellent wear time. (over an eyeshadow primer of course, I don’t wear my eyeshadows without it).
Here are the swatches in different lights:
I have to confess that when I opened this palette for the first time I was a little bit afraid. Since I always use nude eyeshadows, this palette seemed to be very bright for me and not good for everyday makeup. But I was so wrong!
The first three colors (Colors Say It, With Style, Otherwise) are just perfect for daily makeup or very light smokey eyes in pink and lilac shades. The next shade (You Might) is the very duochrome that I can describe as a faint purple with pinky-golden casting. (I read a lot of different descriptions of this shade on the internet as the duochrome shades are always difficult to describe because of the color play they show. But this is why they are so popular and loved, I think). This duochrome shade will also work fine for the daytime makeup.
The darkest shade (As Well) is also packed with pigment and it’s so great if used as an eyeliner.
The last two shades (Just Stay and In Bed) are very bright and can be used as accents for evening and bold makeup looks.
All in all it is a nice palette with astonishing shades for any occasion! It’s practical and handy. Because of the beautiful inner and outer design I always want to use this palette. The only drawback is the price of $49
Overall, I’m delighted with this palette and I guess I’ll buy more 750 Edgitorial Eye-Conic eyeshadows by Marc Jacobs Beauty once I find it discounted.
