Earlier this week I reviewed the heavily-hyped Genius Gel Foundation from the new Marc Jacobs makeup line. The other product that I picked up from the collection was this gorgeous ‘The Lolita’ Style Eye-Con palette.
There are 4 different palettes in the line, but The Lolita is the one that really stood out to me, as it contains seven perfect, warm-toned neutral shades. I also wanted to get this palette, as it was the one that my friend Tati used to do my eye makeup on my wedding day…
The colour selection contains three mattes and four shimmers, all of which are beautiful and very wearable. The formula of the shadows is wonderful. They are soft and blend better than any others I’ve tried. These shadows really are incredible. They are easy to work with, and the combination of colours makes the palette very versatile for daytime or evening use. The central shade is quite high on the glitter front, so is great for a night-out look (but beware of fallout!).
The one criticism I have of the shade choice is the lack of a darker medium-brown shade. There is a very dark matte brown, and a paler brown, but I think the palette would have been slightly improved by the inclusion of a colour similar to MAC’s Twinks.

The packaging of the palette, as with the entire Marc Jacobs line, is stunning. With a nice big mirror, snap closure and raised lettering on the front. The price however, reflects this at $59, but I have used this almost every day since I bought it three weeks ago and can’t see that changing anytime soon. This palette is gorgeous and if you’re looking to invest in the perfect everyday palette, This would be top of my list of recommendations!
Have any of you tried the Marc Jacobs makeup?
