It’s the start of a brand new week, and I’m back to review this gorgeous Marc Jacobs eyeshadow palette. The Lolita Style Eye-Con No. 7 palette was love at first sight. The shadows are creamy, the colors are neutral, and the sleek packaging is stunning!
This 7-pan palette retails for $59 and is sold at Sephora or online here. Included is a nylon carrying pouch and a sponge tip applicator. Though the case is nice, I would have preferred an actual eyeshadow brush instead of a disposable one.
The first four shades in this palette include a creamy beige, soft brown, charcoal brown and a shimmery pink. The first three have amazing pigmentation and a velvety smooth texture. The soft brown can be a bit dusty when you tap your brush into it, but it applies nicely to the lids.
Unfortunately the shimmery pink is quite troublesome. It has a gritty texture thanks to the large chunks of glitter, and unless it’s used wet it creates a ton of fallout. It’s a stunning shadow to look at, but it’s a pain to work with.
The last three shadows include a champagne pink, soft peach and a rosy copper. All three are incredibly smooth and have wonderful color payoff. Their silky texture and luminous finish is exactly what I expected from Marc Jacobs!
Admittedly, these shades aren’t anything unique so if you already own a ton of neutrals, you really don’t *need* this. In fact, if you own the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette, you already have quite a few dupes!
Although the Too Faced shade has more of a champagne undertone, both shadows contain chunky glitter that make them hard to work with. These two are gorgeous in the pan, but sadly that doesn’t translate to the lids.
These two shades are nearly identical in color payoff and texture, they’re both really creamy and super easy to blend!
Again, these shadows are basically identical – they are both creamy, pigmented and a dream to work with. Can you tell the difference? I can’t! 😯
Yep, two more identical dupes. They are both creamy, pigmented and incredibly easy to work with.
Two more exact dupes, both in color payoff and texture. Someone remind me why I thought I needed the Marc Jacobs palette? 😆
As you can see, the shades featured in The Lolita are quite dupable. However, the shadows are creamy and pigmented, and the packaging is beautiful so if you do decide to splurge I think you’ll be happy. What do you think of this palette? Would you splurge on it?
