Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease (202) Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Shadow Palette
Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease (202) Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Shadow Palette

Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease (202) Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Shadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains seven eyeshadows that follow a purple/plum theme. This palette had more of a mix of finishes, rather than all frosts/metallics like The Starlet. For more in-depth commentary about the packaging, please see this post.  Three shades were noticeably powdery, which meant they were easy to blend, but sometimes they were prone to sheering out while blending.  It’s better than stiff, stubborn mattes/satins, but powderiness can sometimes be unforgiving on dry lids or harder to achieve the intensity one desires.  The lightest pink shade was the hardest to work with as it tended to disappear, but the magenta shade, while very powdery, was more workable.  The more shimmery shades in the palette were quite nice with good color payoff, soft and smooth textures, and no application issues.  When I wore the eyeshadows over primer, I had no wear issues, and when I wore them over bare lids, I noticed the light pink shade had faded by eight hours, while the rest of the shades only showed signs of fading after nine hours.

The Tease #1 is a cool-toned, medium-dark purple with a pearly finish–slightly shimmery but not too frosted. It had fairly good color payoff and a soft texture. MAC Black Grape is more metallic, glittery. Dior Constellation #4 is warmer. theBalm All the Way Annie is darker. theBalm Lavish Latoya is cooler-toned. Urban Decay AC/DC is a touch lighter. MAC Dusty Desire is more violet. See comparison swatches.

The Tease #2 is a muted, cool-toned gray with a purple tint. It had a mostly matte finish. The texture was somewhat powdery, though it was soft and easy to blend, and had good pigmentation. Fyrinnae Agenda has a pink shimmer/sheen. NARS Flowers 2 #2 is a satin finish. See comparison swatches.

The Tease #3 is a pale, pastel pink that appears more white than pink on the skin. It had so-so color payoff, and the texture was rather powdery, so it tended to blend out to oblivion on the skin. Dior Constellation #3 is pinker. MAC Dare to Bare is warmer. theBalm Matt Chung is more matte. NARS Douce France #1 is more matte. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #1 is lighter. Chanel Variation #1 is similar. Chanel Premier Regard #2 is more matte, pinker. bareMinerals Muse is lighter. See comparison swatches.

The Tease #4 is a pale, muted peach with beige tones and a soft golden sheen. It had good color payoff and applied smoothly. Disney Scuttle is yellower. Urban Decay Skimp is more matte. MAC Sahara Dust is slightly more beige. MAC Nubile is darker, cream. MAC Hush is less shimmery. Chanel Eclosion #2 is similar. See comparison swatches.

The Tease #5 is a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted, high-shine finish. It had great pigmentation and applied smoothly and evenly. MAC Pinkluxe #2 is pinker, more metallic. theBalm Safe Bet Annette is slightly muted. MAC Love Power is a cream product. Chanel Harmonie du Soir #4 is similar. See comparison swatches.

The Tease #6 is a fuchsia-magenta with a matte finish. It had really rich color payoff, but the texture was noticeably powdery. It blends well but can sheer out if you are not careful. Sugarpill 2AM is similar. Urban Decay Infamous is shimmery. NARS Rebel #2 is lighter. MAC Power Boosted is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

The Tease #7 is a warm-toned, burgundy-brown with red and violet micro-shimmer. It looked mostly burgundy applied, as the shimmer flakes away (didn’t seem to bind with the actual eyeshadow) and what was left is very subtle. Disney Master is cooler-toned. Tom Ford Enchanted #4 is deeper, browner, less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

The Tease (202)

B+
A few shades were somewhat powdery, which was the major drawback, and a couple could have been more pigmented. The last shade in the palette was the worst performer, as it had a drier texture and poorer color payoff (plus, it didn't appear as complex on the lid as it did in the pan). It's a solid palette, but it's not perfect. I recommend patting, rather than sweeping, on the more matte/satin textured shades and using a primer to minimize the issues I experienced.

  1. Aww heck, I only used numbers 1, 2, 4, and 5 today, I guess I got lucky with my selection. Disappointing about number 7, it was pretty but I was going for more of an office look so I haven’t tried it. Number 2 really blew me away, I didn’t expect it to be so pigmented and it was a really easy blender.

    In other news, I read Michael Kors is also launching a collection. Between Marc and Michael I might as well just sign over my whole paycheck right now! Ugh! (But also yay!) :D

  2. Will these be available in the uk? X

  3. I definitely prefer the other shade of this. I’m not big into purple shadows.

    That’s so pretty on you but I think I will pass on it.

  5. Elise

    Some of these colors remind me a lot of the Makeup Geek Eyeshadows. Great colors!

  6. beck

    not feeling this line at all…

  7. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Elyssa ceebee_eebee

    This is one of the sexiest eyeshadow palettes I’ve ever seen. I’m SUCH a sucker for pinks and purples. I may have to shell out for this.

  8. Mediocre purple palette? I think I’m good w my single purple eyeshadow. Thanks for the swatch Christine!

  9. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Elise ProperIntro

    Well that was kind of disappointing (The results of the review), thank goodness I read this before purchasing it! Thanks for reviewing!

  10. beautiful shades of purple.. and packaging is so attractive.. I wish price were bit lower..

  11. The look you did with this palette looks absolutely gorgeous!

  12. I swear I have dupes for the majority of these shadows among my collection so I am not really compelled by this particular palette. I love purple in general but seem to wear it less and less.

  13. I haven’t been this excited over a palette in a really long time. Must have Fall 2013!

  14. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Cat Cat G

    Pretty look you did it with Christine! I really appreciate your reviews on Marc Jacobs Beauty, they’ve been really informative.

  15. This reminds me a lot of The Dream Sequence quad from Bare Minerals!

  16. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Quinctia Quinctia

    I love purples, and this palette is so sleek, but the quality’s a bit subpar for the pricepoint.

  17. Gemma

    ooh so sad I can see th texture is a bit powdery…the packing is quite cute tho :)

  18. Ana

    I’ve been looking for a warm toned purple palette for ages and I have to say this looks pretty damn good. How is it compared to Bobbi Brown eyeshadows??
