Try and I might to resist buying the Marc Jacobs Coconut Eyeshadow Palette ($64 CAD), it eventually caught up to me and I couldn’t resist. The cool tone browns, soft coral and chocolate browns looked so beautiful in the palette and swatches I saw online that I knew I would regret it if I didn’t take the plunge.
For those who may be new to my blog, I am a self proclaimed boring making girl where the shades that some people roll their eyes to, tend to captivate me. I’m talking about the neutral to cool toned browns (which finding a good one can be very hard!) for a soft natural crease or transition, a matte coral that can add a pop of neutral glam and dark browns that blend effortlessly making them easy to use, are my jam and the Marc Jacobs Coconut Eyeshadow Palette offers just that.
The Marc Jacobs Coconut Eyeshadow Palette is a limited edition, summer 2018 release that also included the O! Mega Bronzer in Tantastic (permanent), Coconut Dew Drops (the shade Dew You is permanent) and Setting Powder (permanent). The aesthetics of this collection is white and rose gold, which combined with Marc’s minimalistic packaging looks so sleek and clean for the brand.
The Coconut Eyeshadow Palette comes with 7 shades of which 4 are matte, 2 are shimmers and 1 is a glitter-shadow (I just made that up, but it has the reflect of a glitter shade combined with the pigment of a shadow).
Of the shadows:
- Flesh is an off white, matte colour
- Covets is a light, matte cool toned brown colour. Similar to contouring on the face, I like using cool tone brown shades to contour my eye, cheating the appearance of wider eyes.
- Fantasy is a soft matte coral shade
- She Said is a shimmery pink
- Meet Ya is a golden copper glitter shadow
- For More is a matte reddish-warm chocolate brown
- On the Dance Floor is a shimmery coral shade
All the shadows perform beautifully with enough blending power and pigment to show up and show out! Not being a fan of pink eyeshadows, I don’t use She Said or On the Dance Floor although the formula of the shades are consistent with the palettes.
Overall, the Marc Jacobs Coconut Eyeshadow Palette would be my take on a wearable, colourful palette with beautiful pops of coral, essentials mattes and shimmery statement shades for the lid. The formula is creamy, pigmented and they blend out like a dream. I love this palette and am happy I bit the bullet!
