It goes without saying that things that things that you cannot are probably the one you want the most. Marc Jacobs The Starlet (204) eye shadow palette is one of those things that I was lusting over for quite a while now. Since the spring/summer season is fast approaching I decided to go for some jazzy colors breaking from all neutral. Summer is a great season for having fun with makeup. Most of the time getting away with some unusually bright and glittery combinations. All shades contain finely grated iridescent particles so matte lovers look away.
The packaging of Marc Jacobs palette is quite sleek and luxurious. Inside there are seven highly pigmented colors, a good size horizontal mirror and no makeup brush or sponge (there is one applicator that comes separately but does not fit inside when closed). The formula of these eye shadows is incredibly pigmented and the shades transfer the exact same color as in the pan. I absolutely love the intensity of colors that also work for creating more tuned down every day looks. These eye shadows are very bendable and long lasting too. Throughout the hours of wear I did not experience any fall outs or major creasing which confirmed the high quality of the pigment. From left to right here is my take on shades colors: intense rose taupe, pink champagne, chocolate brown, rose gold, golden with light green undertone, baby blue, and graphite silver with blue undertones.
For every day I would normally wear the intense rose taupe blended all over the lid for more relaxed effortless look. From the Marc Jacobs The Starlet palette, one of my favorite nighttime looks is popping the iridescent baby blue color all over the lid layered with a pop of the graphite silver in the crease.These two shades are elevated take on blue eyeshadow that looks effortlessly chic.I know that blue eyeshadow is not everybody cup of tea but sometime is good to try and discover new things.
