Marc Jacobs The Social Butterfly (230) Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a new, exclusive eyeshadow palette to Neiman Marcus/Bergdorf Gooodman. It is a neutral palette with a mix of mattes and shimmers, slightly cooler-than-average warmer shades. I had trouble with the two darkest shades–they could have been easier to work with when it came to blending, but if you normally wear primer, it may not be so noticeable.

The Social Butterfly #1 is a light, creamy yellow muted by beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, silky texture that was smooth and finely-milled, which made it blendable on the skin. The eyeshadow lasted for eight hours before fading on me.
