Company’s Description

A petite set of three plush eye shadows that harmoniously marry with a creamy, sumptuous finish. Each mini palette of shimmery metallics, buttery mattes, and lustrous sheens are made with advanced pigments that allow true, instant color payoff and long-lasting, plush performance. Shades are cleverly sized to suit your eye shadow needs. Marc invites you to play and become your own Style Eye-Con.

Marc Jacobs’s new makeup line, which launches on August 9, 2013, includes six (6) eyeshadow trios, which the company calls Style Eye-Con No. 3 Plush Shadows. This review is for the trio in 112 The Mod, which includes an eggshell white, a black with iridescent shimmer, and a light grayish taupe.


Packaging: 9.5/10

These trios come in oval compacts made of black, reflective plastic. The compacts look chic and expensive, but aren’t too heavy. The compact has a silver button that you press to open it. Inside, there is a full-sized mirror and the shadows are covered with a plastic piece. Each compact comes with its own felt-tip applicator. Both the applicator and compact come inside of a black bag.

Quality: 9.5/10

The Mod trio contains a slightly frosty white, an intense midnight black with silver shimmer, and a silvery-grey with a velvet finish. This is the perfect trio for creating a smoky eye.

These shadows have a high-quality formula. They are creamy enough to glide onto the skin in an even and smooth manner. They aren’t dusty, chalky, or chunky. They also don’t need a primer underneath to get the color you see in the pan.

Applied without primer, these shades start to crease after about three (3) hours of wear. With primer applied, the creasing starts around six (6) hours of wear.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

These shadows’ creamy formula makes them easy to pack onto the lid as well as blend into the crease. You don’t get any fall-out from any of the colors.

Price: 8.5/10

For $42.00 you get a total of 0.14 ounces (4 grams). This is more expensive per ounce than eyeshadow palettes from Guerlain, Dior, and Edward Bess, but turns out to be cheaper per ounce compared to Dolce & Gabbana’s quads.
