Marc Jacobs Beauty Elec-trick (840) Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition holiday release that contains seven eyeshadows with four matte finishes and three shimmer finishes. If you’re unfamiliar with the line, the names read as a sentence when read together.
Most of the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and easy enough to use, but In the Stardust was fussy–more sparkly, more loosely-pressed, which meant it had to be used with a dampened brush to go on well.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Rock Out Eye-conic Eyeshadow
Rock Out is a pale, pinky beige with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. The eyeshadow had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges but didn’t sheer out too readily. The texture was silky-smooth, substantial enough to keep it from having fallout but still remained blendable. It wore nicely for seven and a half hours before fading a bit on me.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Feel Eye-conic Eyeshadow
Feel is a soft, light-medium taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, velvety texture that was a smidgen dusty in the pan, but it applied and blended out beautifully on my skin. The color lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading a touch.
Marc Jacobs Beauty The Rhythm Eye-conic Eyeshadow
The Rhythm is a medium-dark brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had excellent color payoff paired with a smooth, velvety texture that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly pressed into the pan. It applied evenly and blended out well along the edges on bare skin. There was slight fading visible after eight hours of wear.
Glittering is a medium-dark, reddish-plum with warmer undertones and cooler pink and warmer gold flecks of sparkle. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges, though there was a bit of migration from the sparkles and a bit of fallout during application. The texture was smooth, dense without being thick or heavy, and had good adhesion. It wore well for eight and a half hours with a smidgen of fallout over time.
Marc Jacobs Beauty The Stage Eye-conic Eyeshadow
The Stage is a bright, light-medium silver with warmer undertones and a metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented and had a smooth, almost cream-like texture that helped to keep the sparkle, shimmer, and underlying base together. The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin and adhered well so there wasn’t fallout to worry about during application. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.
In Stardust is a light, slightly warm-toned pink base with flecks of copper sparkle. The texture was more loosely-pressed in the pan, and it was a challenge to apply it without moderate fallout. I’d recommend applying this shade with a dampened brush or fingertip to minimize fallout and maximize pigmentation. It seemed fairly pigmented but sheered out due to the texture. It stayed on decently for eight hours for the base color but had some fallout over time.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Tonight Eye-conic Eyeshadow
Tonight is a deep black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were very, very fine shimmers throughout, but it looked like a matte finish to my eye in person. The texture was more firmly-pressed in the pan, but it was soft, yielding enough to my brush, and had nearly opaque coverage in one layer. It was easily built up to full coverage and blended out well along the edges. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed fading.
