Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Eye Shadow 220 The Lover Palette Review & Swatches
Tuesday, January 5, 2016
The shades in the Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Eye Shadow Palette (220 The Lover) are soft in color. Sometimes when eye shadows are soft in color, they lack pigmentation. That is not the case with the shades in this palette. They are richly pigmented and very beautiful. There are 7 shades altogether. They are not named, but described as a matte baby pink, sandy pink shimmer, light caramel sheen, matte
apricot-rose, copper rose shimmer, seashell pink sheen and matte
cappuccino. I love all the colors except the first one, which comes off very white & chalky against my skin tone. Be aware, the pinks can also be tricky. So, if interested I would swatch this palette in the store to see if it works for you. I think the winners in this palette are the shimmers. They adhere well and are truly beautiful. The packaging for the palette is very sleek. It's the least cumbersome eye shadow palette I've ever seen (except maybe for it's length). It has a mirror (I placed the Marc Jacobs placard in front of it to take pictures) and the palette snaps tight. I was pleased with this palette. In the past, I've tried a Marc Jacobs lip gloss, two lipsticks and his foundation. All were of excellent quality. I'm now interested in purchasing another eye shadow palette (The Lolita 206) from him.
