Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 3
The more I see of Marc Jacobs make-up, the more I like it. These Style Eye-Cons are very silky to the touch and the paler trio, The Ingenue, which I thought would be all of the boring, is actually beautiful and I’m wearing it now. Maybe I’ve lost the ability to see the potential in nude shades, because I’ve seen so many, but this palette gave me a lightful sheen on my lids (I smoked it up of course with a smudged black line) that has stayed put all moring. I deliberately didn’t use a primer just to see. Impressed.
I used the bigger shade as an under brow colour and the middle shade as lid colour – I didn’t do anything fancy at all and it just worked as a good summer, not too much make-up look. This set is called The Ingenue.
The middle shade in The Punk is a gorgeous violet with iridesence to it but the more purple/pink element just isn’t my shade at all and I’m not sure quite how I’d wear it.
As you can see in the swatch, The Punk makes much more of a colour impression but I still love The Ingenue!
There’s a bit of a ceremony in opening a Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con – they come out of the box in a cotton envelope with two sponge applicators (and yes, they’re better than your average sponge applicator in that they’re more sturdy and have a squared off tip) to hold the palette, and once the palette is open, there’s a black protective covering so the shadows stay pristine. So, although you could say it’s over packaged, it is packaged at a premium level. The shadows are called ‘plush’ for a reason.. they’re suedey soft and an effortless blend.
