PAUL & JOE Café Parisien, Café Expresso, Coffee Cherry lipsticks and Caramel Drizzle eyeshadow review
A couple weeks ago, I visited one of the nicest…
Marc Jacobs Beauty always releases the most glamorous palettes and kits for the holidays, and the Objects of Desire Face and Eye Palette is definitely one of my favourites this season.
This all-in-one palette comes in a shiny gold clutch with a tasseled zipper.
Inside is a plastic insert with a bronzer, blush, highlight and six buttery eyeshadows. Essentially, this is everything you need to create a full eye and face look.
I’ll start with the eyeshadows, top row. These three alone could create a nice, neutral eye look. And with this being my first foray into the brand’s shadows, I was more than impressed with the wear time and formula of the first three.
Now let’s talk about the second row of shadows. Obviously I love the purple but I got a ton of fallout with the dark shimmer and the mid-tone plum, Twilight, was a bit patchy.
I used ALL SIX shadows for this multi-dimensional look, Violet Hour as a transition then moving on to Dimmer as I blended into the crease.
Twilight and In the Dark were used to deepen the crease and define the outer V. And I mixed Candlelight and Lights On together on the lid. Also wearing Marc Jacobs liner, mascara and gold topper (review pending).
The face palette portion of clutch is really nice too. Exhibionist is a gorgeous, yet somewhat chalky, hot pink blush. The bronzer is nice and light for my skintone and that highlight… I love it.
Here it is, the full face look using the Objects of Desire Palette (as well as the Marc Jacobs About Lash Night kit).
I can’t get enough of this eye look. I was able to mix cool purples and warm browns together and it just works. The bronzer is a bit too warm for me, but it does give a nice contour in the cheekbones.
The Marc Jacobs Objects of Desire palette is available now (and selling out fast!)
