[productsample/affiliate] Described as ‘demi-pressed’ (hello, never heard this one before!) the Marc Jacobs See-Quins Glitte Eye Shadows are comets of colour for the lids – I kind of feel there should be a sound to go with them, like a big swoosh! There’s definitely been a formula or ingredient shift when it comes to the mica being used because it’s so much brighter than before and I can’t put my finger on exactly why. It might be a whiter base perhaps but the illumination level of the metallic shades coming out this year are beyond what I’ve seen before.
There are four shades (sorry I don’t have more) for eyes and four for lips, all limited edition. The eye colour here is Star Dust, a burnished orange toned sand shade and the lip colour is To The Moon.
As you can see, the packaging is also sparkly and all the more lovely for it. It’s the kind of make up that looks good before you’ve even opened the box!
Just like the Roen colours from yesterday, the See-Quins apply best with finger application, or a close fibre brush such as Artis. As with all of this formula type, there will be some drop so I’d advise doing your eyes first, a quick cleanse (micro fibre cloths are excellent at picking up unwanted sparkles), then your foundation or base in order to avoid twinkle fall. I love Marc Jacobs make-up – it’s good quality and fairly reasonably priced still. The glosses are cushiony and light reflective – a proper comfort wear – and I’ve never had a poor product from this brand.
The See-Quins are £23 and glosses £22 HERE.
