One of the beauty brands that I have recently feel in love with is Marc Jacobs Beauty. They recently released new eyeshadow palettes which look just stunning. There are six different colorways to choose from, so pick the wardrobe that speaks to you, then layer it on to make the ultimate impression. I have the Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette in Glambition, which features seven shades with four different finishes (velvet, satin, silk and lamé). The eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “lasting, velvety-rich pigment.”
I chose this particular colour scheme because I thought my collection was lacking a nice but fancy, neutral every day palette. Unfortunately rocking a sparkly, colourful lid is just not approprate all the time! (sad face). The Glambition palette is stunning to look at, and there is just something very appealing about neutral tones that is so effortlessly chic and gives me a sophisticated city girl vibe.
The Glambition palette is a gorgeous mix of warm neutrals.
- She Was – is a satin ivory shade
- Infamous – is a light matte beige brown, which almost disappears into my tan skin at the moment
- Known For – is a stunning gold shimmer
- Seeking – is a cooler matte brown, with some grey
- The Most – is a pale warm pink shimmer with flecks of silver, this a super gorgeous shade, turns to a taupe pink on my eyes
- Over The Top – is a deep matte warm brown with hint of plum
- Glamour – is black with visible silver glitter, smooth to the touch
The shades are all smooth and highly pigmented, they are very easy to work with and blend themselves. The mattes are beautifully pigment and very smooth on the eye. They are slightly powdery and give some kick back when dip your brush in, however there is no fallout when applying to your eyes. The shimmery shades are not highly metallic but create a gorgeous sheen to the eye with no fallout when applying. I am loving how they glisten in the sunlight but look sophisticated indoors as well. Perfect for work. I also noticed the shadows are very long lasting and do not fade over time.
My overall thought is I absolutely love this palette so far and it is so easy to work with, especially if you have less then 10 minutes to get ready for work, which is how I roll. This palette will also create an amazing evening look. You can easily create a warm smokey eye with a pop of gold or pink shimmer. SMOKING HOT! I am intrigued by the other palettes, and I just may get another as I am slightly obsessed. A girl can never have too many eyeshadows right?
