Edgitorial

Marc Jacobs Beauty Edgitorial Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.21 oz.) features seven shades with four different finishes (velvet, satin, silk and lamé). The eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “lasting, velvety-rich pigment.” The color combination was a mix of warmer and neutral shades from matte to intense metallic finishes. I found the palette to be easy to use overall to create a cohesive look with solely the shades included (I didn’t feel like I needed to look beyond it). A few shades could have been more pigmented, though they were typically buildable and with how deep two of them were, I suspect some will prefer them as buildable.

A few obvious differences between the new Eye-Conic palettes and the previous Style Eye-Con No. 7 palettes: they actually decreased by $10 in price (they used to be $59) with only a slight decrease in quantity (0.21 oz. vs. 0.25 oz.), and each eyeshadow has been named. The ingredient lists differ from shade to shade, which makes it harder to really compare easily, and I saw a lot of similar ingredients but order often varied; they seemed similar to me just by touching, wearing, and applying with maybe slightly higher dimethicone quantities in the shimmery shades and a slightly firmer press (but not stiff) for more matte shades (so less powder kicked up in the pan).

Scandalust

Marc Jacobs Beauty Scandalust Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a deeper, warm neutral palette with a pop of red. The eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “lasting, velvety-rich pigment.” Five of the seven shades were quite pigmented, but two fell short in terms of pigmentation and one had a drier, looser texture that made it harder to use. Overall, it was a solid palette of warmer neutrals that had a good mix of light and dark shades for versatility.

A few obvious differences between the new Eye-Conic palettes and the previous Style Eye-Con No. 7 palettes: they actually decreased by $10 in price (they used to be $59) with only a slight decrease in quantity (0.21 oz. vs. 0.25 oz.), and each eyeshadow has been named. The ingredient lists differ from shade to shade, which makes it harder to really compare easily, and I saw a lot of similar ingredients but order often varied; they seemed similar to me just by touching, wearing, and applying with maybe slightly higher dimethicone quantities in the shimmery shades, so those felt creamier, and a slightly firmer press (but not stiff) for more matte shades (so less powder kicked up in the pan) and marginally silkier for some shades. I had good luck with a lot of the brand’s eyeshadows in the past (I wouldn’t have said they needed to revamp it).

Peace

Bobbi Brown Peace Eye Shadow Trio ($40.00 for 0.25 oz.) includes a light aqua, silvery green, and pale blue. There are two Sparkle eyeshadows (first and third) and one Shimmer Wash eyeshadow (second). The Sparkle Eye Shadow finish is supposed to be a “featherweight” formula with “shimmering pearls and fine sparkle.” The Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow finish is described as a “sheer wash of shimmer.” I don’t think this trio is worth even considering unless you’re someone who loves the brand’s Sparkle formula and likes them sheerer. This trio was painful to wear – my eye was watering nonstop with how much fallout there was as soon as the products were applied. The three shades came together poorly, as they were quite light and offered no contrast and little coverage.

Love

Bobbi Brown Love Eye Shadow Trio ($40.00 for 0.25 oz.) includes three, warmer neutral shades in shimmery finishes. The first shade was lovely, while the middle shade had a lot of fallout during the day, and the last shade was more pigmented than described (which some may prefer).

The trio is comprised of different finishes from the brand. The Metallic Eye Shadow finish is described as a “high-shimmer, high-pigment” formula. The Sparkle Eye Shadow finish is supposed to be a “featherweight” formula with “shimmering pearls and fine sparkle.” The Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow finish is described as a “sheer wash of shimmer.”

Bobbi Brown Beach Eye Shadow Trio ($40.00 for 0.25 oz.) includes three, warm-toned neutral shades in shimmery finishes. If you like your eyeshadows more pigmented, then consider this palette a solid B as the shade that did the worst was due to being opaque when it should have been sheer. The palette itself will work best for someone who likes shimmery, warm-toned neutrals and doesn’t already have a collection full of them as these were fairly dupable.

MAC Aeros Blue Prolongwear Fluidline & Bionic Bae Technahol Liner

Aeros Blue

MAC Aeros Blue Pro Longwear Fluidline ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark blue with strong, cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had medium coverage in a single stroke, and it was buildable to semi-opaque coverage.

The formula is supposed to have 8-hour wear and be waterproof and smudge-proof. I found the the texture to be very emollient, which made it difficult to build up color or get really thin, even lines (I used MAC’s 266 brush in the swatch and in practice). It would actually work better as an eyeshadow base for that very reason rather than an eyeliner (where even, opaque coverage is typically more ideal). It did wear for over ten hours on me, though.
