Marc Jacobs Beauty Smartorial Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a mix of gray, blues, and neutrals with assorted finishes. It featured seven shades with four different finishes (velvet, satin, silk and lamé). The eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “lasting, velvety-rich pigment.” The brighter blue was more of a struggle to work with compared to the other six shades in the palette, as it did not blend out as well and was not as buildable/pigmented as other shades.

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).

Marc Jacobs Beauty Whenever Eye-Conic Eyeshadow

Marc Jacobs Beauty Whenever Eye-Conic Eyeshadow

Whenever

Whenever is a pale beige with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable coverage with a smooth, lightly powdery consistency. It was very blendable and easy to spread it across the skin, but it had a tendency to have some fallout. This shade lasted for seven hours on me.

Marc Jacobs Beauty In Doubt Eye-Conic Eyeshadow

Marc Jacobs Beauty In Doubt Eye-Conic Eyeshadow

In Doubt

In Doubt is a bright, light-medium silver with neutral undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too soft or too firmly pressed into the pan, so it didn’t have fallout but applied well to bare skin. The color stayed on well for eight hours before fading.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Power Platforms Eye-Conic Eyeshadow

Marc Jacobs Beauty Power Platforms Eye-Conic Eyeshadow

Power Platforms

Power Platforms is a bright, medium-dark cobalt blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but it was hard to get opaque coverage without using a white base (primer alone was not enough). The consistency was soft, velvety, and slightly dusty, which made the blending and application somewhat uneven. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.
