Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night (240) Style Eye-Con No. 20 Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night (240) Style Eye-Con No. 20 Palette ($99.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a very large, product-packed palette housed in a bronze-hued plastic compact. Overall, the majority of the eyeshadows were soft, blendable, pigmented, and long-wearing. For a palette with this many shades (and several of them matte!), its performance was impressive. I’m not, personally, sold on the color combination and didn’t feel like it was as versatile as last year’s The Free Spirit palette. If you’re unfamiliar with the way this palette is arranged, look at the shades as columns, as each column creates a “look.”

The mega-sized palette is actually quite a good deal for Marc Jacobs’ eyeshadows, though it is obviously a large amount to put toward one product, so I think it is important to consider how many shades you’d use and whether you’re someone who really uses larger palettes on a regular basis. As a note, going by the label’s printed oz. per shade weight, it appears as if it contains more than last year’s palette, but if you compare the weight by grams, it’s the same (16g in both) — my guess is the oz. was rounded up. There are also some shades that are very close to shades found in last year’s palette.

About Last Night No. 01 is a very light beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, though it was not fully opaque, that had a soft, silky texture that wasn’t too powdery or too firm. It is very light, so it may appear chalkier on some skin tones. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. Makeup Atelier Red Ochre #1 (P) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Inglot #355 (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

About Last Night No. 02 is an intense, medium-dark gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a metallic shimmer. It is a “cooler” gold as it has yellower tones, rather than more orange tones. The color payoff was fantastic with a really smooth, cream-like texture that was easy to work with and lasted for eight and a half hours. On a personal note, I felt like the tone made it harder to work with the rest of the palette. Kat Von D Thrasher (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

About Last Night No. 03 is a medium-dark bronze with warm, reddish undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was slightly dry, which resulted in some of the shimmer separating from the base, but it was blendable and applied well to the lid with patting motions (and then blending the edges). The color lasted for eight hours before fading. Viseart Marais (P) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Uncensored (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

About Last Night No. 04 is a deep, muted purple with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque color coverage that went on well, didn’t sheer out instantly, and lasted for almost nine hours. The downside was that it wasn’t as blendable as it could have been, so it does take some extra effort to diffuse the edges. NARS Demon Lover #2 (P, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Green Jacquard #4 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Spellcaster (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Dynamic Duo 4 #2 (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).

Colour Pop Chopper (P, $5.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

About Last Night No. 05 is a medium, reddish brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture felt soft, smooth, and silky, which resulted in easy application, as the color went on with opaque coverage and blended out nicely around the edges. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. Makeup Atelier Red Ochre #4 (P) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). MAC Brown Script (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Not For Sale (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Whimsy (P) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Top Notch (LE, $5.00) is darker (90% similar).

MAC Swiss Chocolate (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

About Last Night No. 06 is a medium, rosy copper with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The eyeshadow had a drier, chunkier texture–you could feel the sparkle in it–which made it easier to blend on the skin, but it was prone to sheering out. If I used this one again, I would use a dampened brush to help get better payoff and impact while minimizing fall out. The color wore well for eight hours with a bit of fall out over time. bareMinerals Bubbles (LE) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #2 (LE) is warmer (90% similar). YSL Paris #5 (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Sephora Fall Leaves (P, $10.00) is lighter (90% similar). City Color Homecoming Queen (P, $6.99) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Stila Golden Topaz (LE, $18.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

About Last Night No. 07 is a deep, reddish brown with faint gold sparkle over a matte finish. It had intense pigmentation that applied evenly to the skin, and it was fairly blendable overall. It could have been easier to diffuse the edges, and the thinner, more matte finish didn’t work as well with some of the denser shimmers (like No. 06)–it was better pulling and sweeping the shimmer over the matte instead of the other way around. I was impressed by the nine-hour wear of this shade. Estee Lauder Bronze Dunes #4 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Becca Ombre Rouge #5 (P) is warmer (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #4 (P) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Beautyburst (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Codes Elegants #4 (P) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Hot Chocolate (LE) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Zoeva Freshly Toasted (P) is lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Semi-Sweet (P, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M656 Chestnut (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Cute Alert (P, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Makeup Geek Cocoa Bear (P, $6.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

About Last Night No. 08 is a sooty, grayish black with cool undertones and very faint blue shimmer. The shimmer isn’t noticeable on the lid, though you can see it in the pan and in the swatch close-up. The texture was firmer and harder to apply, as it would go on unevenly and was harder to blend out. I recommend using a fluffier brush and layering it over another eyeshadow to darken, rather than used on its own, to minimize the visible unevenness. The color wore well for eight and a half hours on me. Laura Mercier Chocolate Espresso (LE, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Deep Brown (P, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Calligraphy #4 (LE)(90% similar). Make Up For Ever M620 Gray Brown (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Coconut Grove (P, $25.00) is warmer (90% similar).

MAC Diamond Dove (LE, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Dim the Lights (LE) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Wind Down Brown (LE) is warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty She Wolf #1 (LE) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

About Last Night No. 09 is a light beige with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It is a few shades darker than No. 01, but it is still on the lighter side and could sometimes look a bit chalky against my skin tone, so it may not work as well on deeper skin tones as it would on fairer complexions. The texture felt soft and silky, blendable, just a smidgen powdery, and was good for lightening other shades as it played well with the other textures in the palette. On me, it lasted for eight hours. LORAC Nude #1 (LE, $19.00)(100% similar). Hourglass Infinity #1 (P)(100% similar). Tarte Vanilla Candles (LE)(100% similar). Anastasia Fresh (P, $12.00)(100% similar). Tarte Fresco (LE) is darker (95% similar). MAC Elemental (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Sand Out from the Crowd (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

Colour Pop Hear Me Out (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Black Tie Attire #4 (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

About Last Night No. 10 is a light, bluish white with cool undertones and an iridescent sheen. It had decent pigmentation, but it was less pigmented than most shades in the palette. It seemed more like a layering shade, and it would work well to highlight the inner tear duct or to brighten the lower lash line. The texture was smooth, blendable, and easy to work with. This shade started to fade after eight hours of wear. Urban Decay Roadstripe (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Sugarpill Ice Angel (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Blue Rhythm (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Precious Embroidery #2 (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Sephora Early Frost (P, $10.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Dior Blue Garden #2 (LE) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

About Last Night No. 11 is a deep, smoky purple with cool undertones and a frosted sheen. The color payoff was rich and intense on bare skin, and the texture was smooth, blendable, and didn’t kick up excess product in the pan or result in fall out during application. This shade lasted for nine hours on me before creasing faintly. Ciate Own It (LE) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Half Truth (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Marie-Galante #2 (LE, $25.00) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Badass (LE, $16.00)(90% similar). Natasha Denona Slate (27M) (P, $29.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Grand Galaxy (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Sugared Violet #2 (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar).

MAC Elegant Friend (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #6 (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

About Last Night No. 12 is a deep black with a matte finish. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, though the texture was a smidgen thin and drier, so it was harder to apply on bare skin. It is a shade that applies and works better over other shades to darken them than all-over on its own (I would use an eyeshadow primer underneath it for that type of application). The color wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably. Makeup Atelier Natural Brown #5 (P)(100% similar). Chanel Premier Regard #4 (P)(100% similar). Too Faced Wanted (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Devotion (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M100 Black (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar).

About Last Night No. 13 is a light-medium, pinky lavender with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly and blended out easily.

About Last Night No. 14 is a muted, medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, reddish undertones and a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was rich and opaque, while the texture was smooth, dense, and lightly creamy to the touch. It applied well and didn’t lose its intensity on bare skin. I was able to get eight and a half hours of wear out of this shade. Lancome My French #6 (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Sable (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

About Last Night No. 15 is a muted, medium taupe-gray with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish.

About Last Night No. 16 is a deep, bluish black with cool undertones and green and teal shimmer over a matte finish. If patted onto the lid, some of the shimmer is visible, but it looks mostly matte on the lid. As a result, I think this is redundant given that No. 12 is already a deep black with a matte finish. The payoff of this shade was better, and it was easier to blend out on the skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours. Too Faced Cookies and Cream (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 19 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Illamasqua Zeitgeist (P, $25.50) is darker (95% similar). Kat Von D Black Star (LE) is darker (95% similar).

About Last Night No. 17 is a soft, rosy pink with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation paired with a soft, lightly drier texture where some of the shimmer pulled away from the base, which resulted in sheerer coverage when applied than merely swatched. This shade wore strongly for eight hours on me. bareMinerals Merry (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Cle de Peau Les Annees Folles #6 (LE) is warmer (95% similar).

About Last Night No. 18 is a muted, light-medium rosy mauve with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium coverage, so it was one of the weaker shades in the palette, and the texture was much firmer and harder to work with compared to other mattes. It started to fade after seven and a half hours on me. bareMinerals Fortune (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Buxom Feather Boa (P, $12.00) is brighter (90% similar).

About Last Night No. 19 is a medium-dark, smoky plum with soft, warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture had slight dryness to it, but it did not seem to be a major issue when I applied it to the lid, as the color stayed true-to-pan and wasn’t messy to work with. The color payoff was mostly opaque. This shade lasted for eight hours on me. Giorgio Armani #27 (LE, $33.00)(95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Twilight (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar).

About Last Night No. 20 is a muted, medium-dark red-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture was fairly soft, smooth, and blendable despite having a firmer texture than most of the mattes did in this palette. It had good pigmentation that applied well to bare skin but would be better over a primer. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours. Too Faced Double Tap (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Burgundy (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Spice Smoke (22) (P, $39.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Round-up: Marc Jacobs Air Blush

Marc Jacobs Air Blush
Marc Jacobs Air Blush

Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a real winner across the board. I think it actually comes pretty close to living up to its 24-hour claim, which I was completely surprised by. I wore three of the five shades twice to test wear, because the length of wear and strength of wear caught me off guard. The formula also lives up to its buildable coverage and color claims, as each shade can be lighter or darker, depending on whether you lean to the left or right of the compact or just swirl altogether. The pigmentation is solidly medium and buildable, but the silky, smooth texture makes it forgiving and easy to sheer out or build-up without it looking powdery or caked on the skin. Boy, these are like night and day compared to the brand’s original blush range.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Night Fever & Hot Stuff (508) Air Blush

Marc Jacobs Beauty Night Fever & Hot Stuff (508) Air Blush ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The lighter shade is a light-medium pink with very subtle blue undertones, while the deeper shade was a rosy plum; each shade seemed similarly shimmery. Sephora Love Sick (22) (P, $14.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Cle de Peau Pale Fig (P, $60.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Clinique Rosy Pop (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). theBalm Houndstooth (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #1 (LE) is brighter (90% similar). Chanel Rosewood (350) (P, $45.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Cle de Peau Cranberry (P, $60.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Fearless (P, $28.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Fetching (LE, $28.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Bicoastal (Bottom) (LE) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Your Love is King (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Paradiso (LE, $68.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NYX Peach (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Subtle Breeze (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Warmhearted (LE, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Red Water Lily (LE, $40.00) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Chanel Rose Initiale (P, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Estee Lauder Pink Ingenue (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Hipness (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Laura Geller Guava (P, $26.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

According to the brand, Air Blush is supposed to offer buildable coverage with a “luminous finish” that wears for “24-hours.” Each shade consists of a lighter and deeper shade, designed to be used together (each section of product is quite narrow, so it’s not feasible to use a blush or highlighting brush to get a single color). In general, I found the lighter color to have more shimmer/luminosity and acted as the “highlighting” shade within the palette, even though some variations are such that both shades are more blush-like in color and depth. Please note: It’s pretty hard to test a cheek product for 24-hours, since inevitably, most of it will end up on my sheets if I go to sleep, and I can’t tell you if or when I’ve ever pulled an all-nighter on purpose. To that end, I am rating by considering how it looked and what (if any) break down of product occurred between 14 and 18 hours of wear and then extrapolating to determine a “final” wear-time.

Night Fever & Hot Stuff is the darkest/deepest shade in the range. It had more semi-opaque coverage, which was easily built-up to opaque coverage. I think the soft, smooth, and lightweight texture made it easy to diffuse and soften the color for sheerer coverage, if desired, as well, but it seemed to have more pigmentation from the get-go than other shades in the range, though all of them were buildable for me. As the color was blended on the skin, the finish became more and more luminous, which gave it a nice sheen but didn’t magnify pores or the skin’s natural texture on me. This shade seemed to be the best-wearing, as I really couldn’t even detect any changes after 18 hours of wear, though I certainly tried to nitpick and find even the barest hint of fading throughout the day!

Worth noting, during July, 25% of sales of Air Blush will be donated to amfAR when purchased through Marc Jacobs Beauty. (I wouldn’t use it as an excuse to purchase something you’re not interested in but would consider purchasing directly vs. through another retailer if you were planning to buy. I have ordered direct from MJB a few times, and they have always packed well and shipped efficiently–no complaints!)

Marc Jacobs Beauty Flesh & Fantasy (506) Air Blush ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) is muted, medium peach with hints of brown and warmer undertones paired with a soft sheen.

Flesh & Fantasy is the lightest/most muted shade in the range. It had medium coverage, which could be built-up to opaque coverage in two to three layers. The texture was soft, smooth, and a little dusty when I worked with it, but luckily, this did not translate on the skin. It still applied well, blended out easily, and produced a natural sheen that added luminosity but did not emphasize pores or look metallic on my skin. On me, it was still looking very much intact even after 18 hours of wear.
