The Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic palettes have been on my lust list for a while now. Ever since they started appearing all over social media, I have
wanted needed them. I was lucky enough to recently collaborate with John Lewis on a Halloween post, and was able to pick up two of the palettes. You probably heard the squeals of delight when I opened that delivery.
There are 6 Eye-Conic palettes available, all of which are beautiful, but the two I was most drawn to were Provocouture and Scandalust. I love the sleek black gloss palettes – they’re nice and slim so don’t take up much space at all. The mirror included is nice quality and they’re great for taking away with you.
Each palette contains 7 shades in a mix of 4 finishes: buttery matte velvet; shimmering satin; sparkling sequins; and, metallic lamé. Scandalous drew me in as I love warm-tones (even though I have too many), whilst Provocouture appealed as I don’t tend to buy pink shades and I was feeling adventurous.
The shade names on each palette make up a little saying when read across the palette:
Say It, With Style, Otherwise, You Might, As Well, Just Stay, In Bed.
Hot Pants, At The Office, Cause A Fuss, That’s Why, They Call Her, Little Miss, Scandalous.
Provocouture is a gorgeous mix of pinks, plums and magenta. There is a nice mix of warm and cool tones and whilst I didn’t think I would suit pinks, they actually look really nice.
SAY IT – cool pink metallic that’s smooth, creamy and long-wearing.
WITH STYLE – cool lavender pink matte that is buildable but can feel a bit powdery.
OTHERWISE – medium mauve matte that works well as a transition shade and blends well.
YOU MIGHT – purple mauve shimmer that stays on all day but works best with a damp brush.
AS WELL – blackened brown glitter that’s highly pigmented and is similar to Scorpio from Urban Decay.
JUST STAY – warm plum satin that is so creamy and smooth and applies beautifully.
IN BED – fuchsia pink demi-matte that’s nicely pigmented and blendable.
Provocouture costs £39.00 and you can buy it here.
Scandalust is just me in a palette. The warm tones are perfectly to my taste and it’s ideal for this time of year. I do think someone will have to prise warm palettes out of my hands come Spring.
HOT PANTS – warm beige satin that’s nicely pigmented and very smooth.
AT THE OFFICE – warm beige matte that is very smooth and blends well.
CAUSE A FUSS – rosy copper metallic that can be a bit dry but is stunning when used with a wet brush.
THAT’S WHY – orange brown matte that’s richly pigmented and similar to Pastry from Too Faced.
THEY CALL HER – warm red copper metallic that is stunning when used with a damp brush.
LITTLE MISS – brown plum matte that is fairly silky but a bit harder to blend.
SCANDALOUS – dark red demi-matte that applies evenly and is beautifully pigmented.
Scandalust costs £39.00 and is available to buy here.
The quality of the Eye-Conic palettes is so good and I definitely want to get more. Have you tried any of them yet?
