Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con The Lolita Palette




















































































































































































I'm going to go all out and say it - I think this is my favourite eyeshadow palette of all time. This palette could have been MADE for me. I'm a huge lover of neutral palettes, but I sometimes get a little overwhelmed by palettes with about 15 shades of brown. This gorgeous offering from Marc Jacobs' beauty line offers a selection of seven shades, three matte and four shimmer, housed in a luxurious sleek black case of beautifullness. The colours are perfect for my skintone, with the perfect combination of a light matte crease shade, dark matte crease shade, matte highlight, simmer highlight, bronzy colours and the central dazzling glitter shadow. Every shadow is buttery soft and wonderfully easy to blend, and you can create both day and night looks with one gorgeous palette. The majorly shimmery shade (I do wish Marc Jacobs had included colour names) has slight issues with fallout, but the others shades stay very well put with a primer. I love the little pouch the palette comes in, making it great for travelling, but it would have been nice to have a brush included, rather than the teeny little sponge applicator that was squished in the end of the pouch. The plastic insert is also a little flimsy, but really I'm clutching at straws to find anything actually wrong with this product. The price is steep, but I think it's justified for the princess factor of putting your make-up on with stunning shadows from an equally fancy-smanshy palette.
