The new Marc Jacobs eye-conic palettes that recently launched replacing the eye-con palettes have been very popular. These palettes were sold out from Sephora Australia in a matter of weeks!
I was lucky enough and had the chance to get my hands on some of these eye-conic palettes in the shades Provocouture, Scandalust, Frivoluxe and Edgitorial and I am very excited to share my thoughts about these palettes.
First, let’s talk about formula. The Marc Jacobs eye palettes have been known for its creaminess, high pigment and blend-ability. We don’t need to dig into the pan to get more than enough amount and light handed application is better for these eyeshadow.
Comparison with the Marc Jacobs Eye-Con no. 7 (earlier version of these palettes)
These recent palettes have the advantage of lesser costs in comparison to the earlier releases, and hence increase its popularity in the market. The new Marc Jacobs eye-conic cost USD $49 (AUD $66) in comparison to the eye-con no. 7 palettes that cost USD $59 (AUD $89).
The Marc Jacobs eye-con no. 7 palettes were weighing 7.0g net total (or 0.24oz) while the Marc Jacobs eye-conic palettes are weighing 5.95g net total (or 0.21oz). The price is different because the older version palettes came with nylon carry bags and the amount of shadows in the newer version palettes are slightly less.
In terms of ingredients, talc are presents in all palettes. Talc is a cheaper type of filler that can be a down point to some people.
The eyeshadow in these palettes come in four different finishes. They are velvet, satin, silk and lamé.
Out of all four palettes that I have, there is only one shadow that I am having trouble swatching properly. That is the shade Always from the Frivoluxe palette. This shade is a light dusty rose shade in a matte finish with some silver glitter to it. It has a drier texture to it and I had to really dig into the pan to get a decent swatch.
Overall, these palette are a delight and I am looking forward to experiment with them a little more over the next few weeks.
Hopefully this review has given you enough information if you are thinking of purchasing it. Enjoy your day!
