THREE EYESHADOW PALETTES FROM MARC JACOBS, NATASHA DENONA AND SMASHBOX

Today I’m rounding up some newer eyeshadow palettes I picked up in April and have gotten a chance to test out fully. Each curated palette includes a covetable mix of chic neutral, wearable shades and provocative pops. I love warmer tone palettes and also did a review on a couple Pat McGrath ones here; so today I’m rounding up the other three palettes I’ve been loving for the season.

Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Fantascene (US $48 & CAD $64)

The Eye-Conic Palette is a seven-pan eyeshadow palette in Marc Jacobs’ sleek packaging. The shadows are all flattering, easy-to-wear rose gold and neutral eyeshadows in four different finishes: buttery matte velvet, shimmering satin, sparkling silk and metallic lamé.

These are creamy and smooth with rich pigment. They are easy to blend and they layer beautifully. There is some kick back but overall it blends amazing on my medium/olive skin tone. The formula is the exact same as all the other Marc Jacobs palettes, which is pretty amazing and worth checking out. I am a sucker for packaging and this is just packaged so beautifully! This is such a gorgeous palette, beautiful color selection and perfect for spring and summer.

Shades from L-R: Flesh, Covets, Fantasy, She Said, Meet Ya, For More, On The Dance Floor

Natasha Denona Mini Sunset Palette (US $25 & CAD $30)

Isn’t this one of the cutest little eyeshadow palette you’ve ever seen? This is a miniature size of the existing Sunset palette, featuring five brand-new shades. This palette gives you the range to create a whole eye look with two shimmering metallics, two versatile mattes, and one sparkling foiled shade. This is a warm toned palette and its compact size makes it perfect for travel. The Natasha Denona mini palette comes in a glossy plastic white packaging. In my opinion, I think that Natasha Denona has some of the best eyeshadows on the market.

They are very pigmented with great color payoff, buttery soft and smooth and are very easy to blend and layer. There were minor fallouts on the metallics. This palette is a great way for many to try her formula if you don’t want to spend the $$$ on her other palettes.

Shades L-R: Eyeshadows in Guava (dirty peach matte), Apollo (bright brick metallic), Dirty Mars (dirty terra-cotta matte), Sun Beam (rich bronze metallic), Halo (warm champagne metallic)

Smashbox Cover Shot: Petal Metal Eye Shadow Palette — Smashbox + Vlada (US $29 & CAD $35)

The Smashbox Petal Metal Cover Shot Eyeshadow Palette was launched with the Smashbox + Vlada Petal Metal Collection for Spring/Summer 2018 and is limited edition. The collection is actually a collaboration with makeup artist Vlada Haggerty. This is a gorgeous, travel-friendly palette that features matte and shimmer shades in rose gold tones.

The packaging is quite beautiful and comes in a metallic rose gold rectangle compact with holographic features. This comes with 8 shades with 2 matte shades for blending. The quality, pigment, color payoff was very good and they were not frosty in any way as I tend to avoid those types of shades. They applied really smooth though I find it best to go in with fingers for the metallics as it was a little difficult with a brush. I found this palette had a lot more fallout than the other two but it could be because the shades felt softer as well. These rose gold tones will look flattering on everyone and the colors are all wearable for daytime, but it’s easy to create a night look too. I love the colors and the formula is quite amazing.

Shades are: Fresh Stem; Opal Rose, Nude Rose, Rose Quartz, Floral Support, Rose Rocked; XO,Vlada; Coffee Blossom
