Company’s Description

A super skinny, sleek palette of seven eye shadows that harmoniously marry with a creamy, sumptuous finish. A super skinny and sleek design will instantly make these seven harmonized shadows become your eye essentials. Each 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. 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 four (4) eyeshadow palettes, which the company calls Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Shadows because they contain 7 eye shadows each. This review is for the palette in 204 The Starlette, which includes the following colors: metallic muted lilac, metallic champagne pink, metallic dark copper brown, metallic bright copper, metallic gold, metallic bluish silver, metallic gunmetal gray.

Packaging: 9.5/10

These palettes come in long, narrow, 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. The compact comes inside of a black bag.

Quality: 9.75/10

The Starlet palette contains various brown- and grey-based shades, all with frosty finishes. This is a mostly neutral palette.

All seven (7) shadows have a creamy formula that applies onto the skin in an even and smooth manner. All of the colors also have great pigmentation. I really don’t have much to say about this palette other than that the formula and pigmentation is excellent. The only criticism I can think of is that there are no matte shades. As long as you’re ok with that and are interested in trying something form the Marc Jacobs line, this is absolutely the palette for you.

Ease of Use: 10/10

These shadows’ formula makes them easy to pack onto the lid as well as blend into the crease. You won’t need to go back into the pan for more shadow because you’ll get a smooth, opaque line the first time around.

Price: 9.25/10

For $59.00 you get a total of 0.24 ounces (7 grams). This is less expensive per ounce than eyeshadow palettes from Guerlain, Dior, and Edward Bess, and Dolce & Gabbana, and is a better value than Marc Jacobs’s eyeshadow trios.

    This is tempting, but I’m not a fan of the light blue and greenish-gold shades.
