Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Scandalust Eyeshadow Palette

 Marc Jacobs recently release the Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Collection which is a gorgeous sleek palette with 7 extremely wearable shades in each case. I will be honest, I haven't played around too much with Marc Jacobs Makeup, mostly because the price stag is pretty steep, but Marc Jacobs to me is more of a fashion designer, not makeup. But to say I was impress with the Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic palette, is a major understatement. So the price for each palette is $49, so I only purchased one. The one that stood out to me the most is the Scandalust palette ($49)

The different palettes are described and listed below from the Sephora website;

"Provocouture (dusty plum and magenta): Say it with style; otherwise, you might as well just stay in bed.
Glambition (bare and bronze): She was infamous, known for seeking the most over-the-top glamour.
Frivoluxe (chilled greige and violet): Fabulous! Always dress outrageously and how you want. Who has time for less?
Scandalust (rust and warmed browns with scarlet): Hot pants at the office cause a fuss; that’s why they call her little miss scandalous.
Edgitorial (camouflage and reflective gold): Take a memo. Next season, we’ll see, pleather python, making a scene, enviously, everywhere.
Sartorial (celestial cobalt and icy teal with prismatic gray): Whenever in doubt: power platforms. Make sure (for once) they know who runs the show.

This is how the Scandalust palette is described per Sephora's website;
"Empower your inner eye stylist with these ultra-luxe eyeshadow palettes, each featuring four fashion finishes: buttery matte velvet, shimmering satin, sparkling silk, and metallic lamé. Each curated palette includes a covetable mix of chic neutral, wearable shades and provocative pops in a new super-plush shadow formulation to cover lids in lasting, velvety-rich pigment. Available in six different colorways, choose the wardrobe that speaks to you, then layer it on to make the ultimate impression. "
The colors are extremely blendable and I found that when my makeup brush was wet, the colors went on much deeper and more rich, especially the golds, the colors are pigmente
The palette is so gorgeous, it is probably my favorite piece in my entire makeup collection right now. The colors are creamy and rich and have my favorite shades. (Starting from the top)
Hot Pants- An Off white Sparkle Shade that works great as the first layer on your eyelid.
At The Office- A Basic Mauve Brown that works well as a base to the eyeshadow you're about to pack on.
Cause A Fuss- A Shimmery Latte Color that packs a light glitter punch with a tad bit of fall out.
That's Why- A Rusy Dark Brown perfect for the inner crease and the v of your eyelid.
They Call Her- A Dark Rusty Sparkle perfect for the inner or outer lid creating a sparkle that will last all day. This color works a lot better when wet.
Little Miss- A Dark Plum which work me only work in the outer V for a dramatic smokey eye effect.
Scandalust- A dark dim purple that brings a dramatic color to the smokey eye that this palette can create. This is my favorite color out of the palette, and I use this under my eyelash line for a more dramatic look

Wearing the colors just as I listed above, the white in my inner corner of my eyelid and under my eyebrow, and  the last dark purple color under my eye and around, with the other colors in the middle on my eyelid.
The picture above is me using all the colors to incorporate a daytime smokey eye.

If you love a good smokey eye with a bit of red in the mix (blue eyes should love these colors) then this is the perfect palette for you. Marc Jacobs really brought the goods on these beauties.

All the Marc Jacob Eye-Conic Palettes are available on Marc Jacob's website for $49.00 (If you're thinking of purchasing please click my affiliate link)

Overall I'm obsessed with the Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Scandalust Palette and I think you will too if you decide to pick it up.
