Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren (210) Style Eye-Con No.7 Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains seven eyeshadows that range from bright white to deep teal. It’s a new and limited edition palette for summer. The quality of the palette was very good, with only the blue being slightly powdery and a bit sheerer, but by no means was it even bad. Even though the palette is a rainbow of colors, they’re all noticeably muted–they’re not bright, neon, in-your-face colors, but rather a softer variation of a rainbow theme. For those who prefer more matte finishes, you’ll want to look elsewhere, as all seven shades are more frosted. All seven shades wore at least as long as eight hours with some lasting well after nine hours.

The Siren #1 is described as a “cloud white pearl.” It’s a bright, frosted white with subtle cool undertones. It had good color payoff, while the texture was dense, buttery, and smooth. Kat Von D Lunar Lights (P) is warmer. theBalm #11 (P, $6.50) is similar. Tarina Tarantino Dreamy #1 (P) is slightly warmer. Disney by Sephora Midnight Hour #1 (LE) is similar. theBalm Sassy (P, $16.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Flawless Figure (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Crystal Avalanche (P, $15.00) is similar. MAC Chillproof (LE, $15.00) is brighter, more metallic. Inglot #453 (P, $6.00) See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #2 is described as a “rusty red pearl.” It’s a medium-dark red with warm, orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had excellent pigmentation, and the texture felt so soft and smooth that it almost felt like a cream eyeshadow. NARS Cambodia (LE, $24.00) is lighter, warmer. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #2 (P, $9.99) is similar. Urban Decay Gash (DC, $18.00) is darker. Milani Primary #2 (P, $6.99) is similar. Milani I Heart You (P, $6.99) is more orange. MAC Crimson Tryst (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned, darker. MAC Cranberry (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Spicy Smoke (LE, $32.50) is similar. Le Metier de Beaute Fire Lily (P, $30.00) is darker. Sugarpill Asylum (P, $12.00) is warmer, more metallic. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #3 is described as a “copper shimmer.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark copper with warm, golden undertones and a frosoted finish. The color payoff was fantastic, while the texture was blendable and easy to work with. theBalm #21 (P, $6.50) is lighter. theBalm #6 (P, $6.50) is browner. Makeup Geek Glamorous (P, $5.99) is less frosted. Anastasia Rum Cake (LE) is darker. Clarins The Essentials #6 (LE) is lighter. LORAC Gold (P) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #4 (P) is more orange. Guerlain Cuivre Ora (LE, $35.00) is darker. Urban Decay Chopper (P, $18.00) is lighter. NARS Isolde #1 (P, $24.00) is similar. bareMinerals Bragging Rights (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #4 is described as a “marigold shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, yellow gold with a frosted, almost metallic, finish. The pigmentation was opaque, and the eyeshadow felt soft and creamy. theBalm #40 (P, $6.50) is less metallic. MAC Lily White (2014) (LE, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Captivating #1 (LE, $21.00) is less metallic. theBalm D1 (LE, $16.00) is darker. NARS Goldfinger (P, $24.00) is cooler-toned. bareMinerals Rising Star (LE) is similar. bareMinerals Standing O (P) is lighter. Inglot #403 (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #5 is described as a “seafoam pearl.” It’s a medium, seafoam green–a mix of blue and green, leaning green–with a soft, pearly sheen. The color payoff was great, and this shade was easily applied due to its soft, smooth, creamy texture. theBalm B2 (LE, $16.00) is lighter. CoverGirl Turquoise Glow (325) (LE, $4.99) is lighter. MAC Lucky in Love (LE, $21. is bluer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #6 is described as a “cobalt pearl.” It’s a cool-toned, purple-blue with a soft, pearly sheen. It had fairly good pigmentation, but it was the least pigmented of the seven, and the texture was slightly powdery to work with. Sephora Collection My Boyfriend’s Jeans (19) (P, $13.00) is darker, bluer. Urban Decay Blue Bus (LE, $18.00) is purpler. MAC Wintersky (LE, $32.50) is purpler. Giorgio Armani Ecailles Black Pearl #2 (LE) is darker, purpler. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Technoir (P, $14.00) is darker. bareMinerals On the Rocks (P) is lighter, less pearly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Siren #7 is described as a “sea smoke glitter pearl.” It’s a deepened, dark teal with cool, blue undertones and a frosted finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was dense and buttery. bareMinerals Deep Sea (LE, $14.00) is less frosted. Sephora Collection Midnight Swim (16) (P, $13.00) is darker. Milani Mix It Up (P, $6.99) is slightly greener. bareMinerals Editor’s Pick (LE) is more muted. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

OOooooh, this rainbow palette is really, really nice, and a good compliment to my matte palettes and the Electric palette. I’ve put myself on a no-buy for awhile, so I’m hoping that this will still be available later in the summer!

I was wondering if you’d review this! Glad to see it get an A+ rating! I won’t be picking it up because I never wear colors like this, but if I was in the mood to splurge on something limited edition just to have it, it’d be this! πŸ™‚

Hi Christine, I wanted to love this brand so so much, especially since I love the handbags, but sadly the shadows I have tried and a few other items disappointed me, I find them way overpriced for what the payoff is, I was tempted to pick this palette up but I have dupes for all the colors already.

Which palette did you try? I don’t love all of them, but a couple of them have been really nice!

I tried the more neutral one and the purple one, they were pigmented enough, just not as smooth as I would have liked them to be and I seemed to have dupes for them, Marc is a bit on the “too” shimmery side at times, I do want to try the lipsticks though.

I am thinking too, that (at least the eye shadows) as expensive as they are sort of market toward woman in their 20s, which most are just starting out so they can not really afford them, while the price markets to more established (career wise) a little older perhaps? For the most part anyhow. They are something I would so wish to afford back then, but now that I am 53, I have to be much more careful with shimmery products, lol

My view is totally skewed, because it doesn’t seem like age is a barrier to purchase higher-end products when it comes to the online beauty community (I routinely wonder how Tom Ford products can sell out in a matter of days), but no doubt that the real majority is more like that as less discretionary income means less opportunities for expensive makeup.

That’s what I was thinking – surprised there was no purple, but then there would have been no seafoam green…

They should have just made it an eight pan then. The only benefit of having seven pans would’ve been following a Roy G Biv style rainbow, haha!

This is one of those “I couldn’t resist the packaging” items! So pretty but I don’t wear such bright colors!

i ordered this last night. as soon as i saw it i knew i’d cave…any artist would! looks just like watercolors! i’m anxious to see more looks with it.

Every swatch is gorgeous. I love the look you did with the palette too! Do we know if this is permanent?

Wow, gotta say, I wasn’t expecting this palette to be wearable on its own, but it looks great! Especially loving #7.

What’s nice is you can easily use each side without combining them, and when you want to get more creative, that’s when you can start mixing and matching πŸ™‚

So glad to see you liked this! I bought it immediately (like, went to Sephora and had the girls pull it from the back for me) after seeing it here and basically the same response…they’re wearable brights. They’re perfect for wearing color when, say, bright UD shadows are just too much, but something like Dior or even Chanel palettes are just not pigmented.

The copper is surprisingly wearable, even on me, who runs and hides from orangey things, and I can use the red (which in no universe will work on my eyes) as a light layer of blush over a cream blush.

Definitely glad I got my hands on this one. Thanks, Christine! It looks lovely on you!

Ohh, glad you were able to use the red as a blush! πŸ™‚

Yes, there’s just something… muted… slightly darker than your typical bright shades, but not at all in a bad way.

Gah, I actually really like these colours, but I know I’d not get much use out of them.

Do you know any non LE dupes for The Siren 5?

I was very interested in this palette for the primary colour range, I love bright eyes and neutral cheeks and lips for summer, plus, I’m a huge sucker for red eyeshadows in general. But sadly, this is far too frosty for my tastes.

I can for sure see this being too shimmery – on one hand, it helps make the palette easier to use (almost insurance, whereas satins/mattes are harder to nail in this color range), but it reduces versatility.

Thank you for doing this review! I so loved the look of the palette but have been very on the fence about this brand! Underwhelmed with the products I’ve tried. The shadow set I got was too frosty for my taste (go figure, I love glitter, just not frost…a fine distinction). And this looks perhaps too cool toned and frosty for me. I have a slightly warm undertone. Am I right? It’s so pricey I hate being wrong at this price point. So glad – to repeat – to see this review!!!

It does look nice, but half of the colors are leaning a bit out of what I’d wear regularly. Red’s fine, just not an everyday shade, but I don’t often reach for orangey colors or darker golds.

Five years ago, I would have been all about the blue/teal side, and now I’m all about the red/copper/gold side. Total opposites now πŸ˜‰

Hmm I wonder if I got a dud. I had to swipe like 6 times with a DENSE brush for any noticeable color to show up on my eyelid. Of course I’m more used to intense colors like sugarpill or fyrinnae… but this palette didn’t seem pigmented at all. I returned mine but maybe I’ll give it another try once my neighborhood sephora has a proper display for it that I can swatch.

For any shades or was there a particular one you were working with? I’ve used both Sugarpill and Fyrinnae, and the pigmentation is similar from my experience! The photos of the look are the eyeshadows directly applied, no primer, if that helps πŸ™‚

This really reminds me of Sleek makeup’s Sunset palette. I think I’d prefer this palette though since it is so much easier for me to access on the Sephora website. Really beautiful summer colours! πŸ˜€ Love the look you created!

This is so pretty, but I have dupes for almost all of the colors. Might still put it on my birthday wishlist because it would be good for travel!

The red and green-blue are calling my name! Though it’s too bad there aren’t a wider variety of finishes.

I wonder what the reasoning was behind a very frost-heavy palette. I love frost, so I’m not bothered by it really, but I’d love to hear what was said during the decision making process!

Thanks for the review. It really helped me make up my mind to buy this palette (I just hope it won’t sell out before I get the chance).
Christine – did you use all three gold-reds in the eye look? It’s really gorgeous.

Used all seven shades in the look πŸ™‚ The aqua/blue/teal on the lower lash line, everything else on the lid (gold/copper/red, then white on the inner tearduct)!

ooof I’m in such desperate need of this. thanks for the beautiful swatches, Christine! my wallet is not as thankful though, haha.

Nice colors but I hear that the Marc Jacobs eyeshadows have nearly identical textures and payoff to the Sephora brand shadows… I don’t think I could shell out money in good faith for what some have described as Sephora shadows in fancy packaging. I personally have only played with the testers in store so I am not sure, but I am passing on this brand as a whole.

There’s definitely some similarities, but it’s hard to say without there being identical shades released in both ranges!

*gasp* #6! *swoon*

Although there’s a little bit of me that rolled my eyes at the fact that of all the shadows, the blue one had to be the lowest rating, LOL. I shouldn’t complain – this whole palette is gorgeous, and I want it! It’s a shame it’s LE though – but it might be still kicking around when I get the chance to look at it in June! πŸ™‚

The eye look you did here is *gorgeous*. <3 It's the blue/copper look I always mean to try and achieve, but never succeed at. Might have to give it another go with the stuff I have here!

Perfection!! Love everything about it and the look u did is so pretty might try that before i get this as i have these colors im sure, but gonna get this palette. reminds me of watercolors from when i was a kid.

Love the eye look you created. From the look of the palette, I expected it to be not as neon bright and garish as UD Electric but certainly in that direction. Your look was very earthy, oceany and natural. At this stage of the game, I’m not comfortable with an all shimmer palette especially at that price, but it does look great. Regarding the price point and the age of the target market, I think there are many women regardless of their age and income who will break the bank for a product that they think is a must have.

I agree – sure, not everyone is putting down $50+ on a palette, but it doesn’t seem like there’s a shortage!

I badly want this as I have been wanting to try a MJ palette for long now..but not sure how these colors would look on my NC40 skin tone..though the palette is very pretty and chic!

Hi Christine. This looks like such a lovely palette. I was thinking of getting it, but I’m trying to buy new makeup that is different from the loads of stuff I already have. I have the Sleek Sunset palette, & I think they are similar. Do you think it’s worth having both the Sleek and the Marc Jacobs palette ?

You could definitely have both, but Sleek’s palette is a lot brighter. It also lacks the right side of the palette – it really just has similarities to the first three.

Oh, Christine!!! What you did to your eye is a watercolor dream! Beautiful! I love this, as an artist of many sorts, yet will wait a but before purchasing, which I’d love to do! CLASSIC Paint kit look. Adorable & colors are plush with vibrancy! Thank you for this review! <3 XO

So I’m having a hard time deciding which palette to get. I realize that they are all very different, but I currently only have a neutral palette (sonia kashuk). I’m trying to decide between 3 different palettes that are more colorful so that I can create different looks. If you had to pick one, which would that be? Urban decay ammo palette, Too faced pretty rebel palette, or Marc jacobs siren palette?

Oooh, that’s tough! I think you get more shades in the Pretty Rebel palette, so I’d say go for that one…

but maybe look at the palettes and try to visualize which shades you’d use, which one has shades you’d use most often?

I think that I’m gonna end up getting this one…I just can’t resist all of the primary colors. (: And one more question! How did you start adding in color to your makeup looks? I tend to go for more neutral looks but I’d like to add more color. I’ve tried before, but it just ends up looking muddy or like a solid block of color (too much for me). Any suggestions?

Here are a few tips:

1.) Practice on the back of your hand (easier to remove, you can do it on the fly, etc.)
2.) Use less colors — maybe just two or three
3.) Pair with a more basic/neutral shade
4.) Try more contrasting shades (e.g. light green to dark green) as they can naturally create a gradient but are in the same family so you don’t have to blend too much
5.) Add color to a look by applying a colored eyeliner (eyeshadow or an actual eyeliner)
6.) Try something like a darker purple, blue, green in the crease/outer lid only

Thank you so much for all of the advice!!! I really really appreciate that you took the time out to comment back and help me. (:
