Review: Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette

in at June 1, 2018

Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette (Sephora PH, P2,860)

If there’s one beauty product that I allow myself to splurge on, it’s a good eyeshadow palette! I’m a full-fledged drugstore girl but when it comes to eyeshadows, I prefer high-end because of the unparalleled quality. I end up using it every day and eventually empty the pan so I get my money’s worth. I also discipline myself and purchase only 1 a year!

The limited edition Marc Jacobs Beauty Fantascene Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette comes in a sleek, luxurious white packaging accentuated with rose gold details (even the box it came in!) with a compact mirror inside. It has 4 mattes (Flesh, Covets, Fantasy, For More), 2 satin (She Said, On the Dance Floor), and 1 shimmer shadow (Meet Ya). I think cool-toned shades are always (!) wearable, and love myself a pink shadow – thus my deep, burgeoning love for the Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette – although they do have some kickback, nothing too dramatic – the type that starts wars between brands and YouTubers. However, when applied to the lids, I don’t experience any fallback at all, so that’s appreciated.

I love the combination of colors! I end up with great eye make-up days, both for everyday and full glam looks. They’re superiorly pigmented and offer intense pay-off regardless if you wet them or not. It also wears well throughout the day and doesn’t budge at all! I’ve been dreaming to have my very own Marc Jacobs Beauty palette for a year now, and this definitely passed my expectations!

P.S. According to one of my favorite beauty gurus, JKissa, the dupe for this palette is the E.l.f Rose Gold Sunset Palette in Sunset which costs a 5th of the price! Watch her dupe-torial here.

P.P.S. How cute are these exclusive Sephora pins that came with my purchase (P2,500 and more)? This Beauty Pass Exclusive promo is until the 30th of June! ✨
