Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con Eyeshadow palette in The Starlet ~ Review andSwatches

Omg it's been awhile since I've posted! I figured I'd post a review on something that I've been loving for quite awhile!

When Marc Jacobs released his cosmetic line for Sephora I had to try it out! I wanted to see everything in person, so I stopped in my sephora and was in love with everything!  The packaging is sleek and stunning, everything I'd expect from Marc Jacobs. Everything felt very luxe. I decided on only a couple items to begin with to have some self control and also because these are pricier. 

One of the items I decided on was a palette but I was torn between two, so I let my hubby choose for me and he picked out the Starlet palette. I have to say I am glad he went with this one because I have gotten so much use out of it! 

The eyeshadows are velvety smooth. They are all highly pigmented and blend easily. All of the shadows in this palette are very shimmery, so if that's not your cup of tea then pass on this one. I love a little shimmer! ;) Although when I use this, I always have to use other shadows or palettes in order to achieve a wearable look. In my opinion it would be difficult to do a complete eye look with this as there is no matte highlight or matte crease color. I have no problem pulling out a few other shadows to use in conjunction with these, but it might not be practical for some. 

I have heard mixed reviews on the Marc Jacobs line, so maybe it's hit and miss but I'm happy with my purchases. 

This would make a great Christmas gift under the tree for a beauty junkie, girl friend, or any woman in your life who loves makeup. 

You can find this at your nearest Sephora or for $59.

Have you tried anything from the Marc Jacobs Beauty line? What are your thoughts?

60 dollars is a pretty steep price! Looks lovely though :)
