Marc Jacobs Holiday 2016 Style Eye-Con No 20 – 240 About Last Night
Marc Jacobs just released a brand new Limited Edition Holiday 2016 eyeshadow palette
The Style Eye-Con No 20 ~ 240 About Last Night
This palette is limited-edition
Contains 20 plush eyeshadows in luxurious finishes
What I found even more fabulous is the way it’s organized
It’s organized into five columns for a complete wardrobe of looks.
Makeup artist Diane Kendal curated the shadows
Who is Diane Kendal you ask?
A British-born makeup artist, who resides in New York City. She is the beauty product consultant and makeup artist for Marc Jacobs Beauty, and has developed product lines for Calvin Klein Cosmetics. I say she’s a keeper just google her name and take a look at some of her amazing work.This palette is incased in a beautiful gold hard plastic case, which doesn’t feel cheap in the slightest…its Marc Jacobs Beauty I would only expect the absolute best.
It has a Silver clap type closure and contains 20 eyeshadows – 20 x 0.03 oz
Once you open it up Marc Jacobs describes a major infinity mirror, and I totally agree. The mirror is huge, and one you can actually use to do an entire makeup look Yeah its that good
So lets talk shadow details
The shadows are organized into five columns
Column 1, Awards Show: matte ivory, metallic gold, metallic bronze, matte aubergine
Column 2, Evening Swag: matte suede, champagne shimmer, chestnut shimmer, matte cocoa
Column 3, Afterparty: matte eggshell, snowy white shimmer, charcoal shimmer, matte sooty-black
Column 4, About Last Night: matte rose-petal blush, mink shimmer, matte cashmere, deep black
Column 5, Just Like Us: cream shimmer, peachy-rose shimmer, lavender shimmer, matte spice
Now of course you can totally use whatever shadows you want, there are no rules with makeup just have fun with it =) It is nice that they organized it for you.
Swatching the shadows they were all very pigmented and super smooth. Although the top rows lightest shadows all seemed so similar on my skin with just ever so slight differences in there tones and finishes. Other than that I really don’t have any complaints.
C omparing last years palette the 224 The Free Spirit
You be the judge. What do you think?
Personally I find 240 About last night to have more everyday shades vs. last years more nighttime date night type of shades.
Either way I like them both very much and am so glad to add this one to the collection
Thanks so much for stopping by.
