Marc Jacobs Beauty Violet O!Mega Gel Powder Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark, lavender purple with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a more powdery consistency, which even translated in the swatch, despite having a more pigmented formulation to start with. The color had a tendency to sheer out a bit when applied over bare skin, and there was noticeable fallout (even though I tried to avoid it). The powder itself seemed particularly finely-milled, but it seemed to lack enough binder to keep it together. It's the type of shade that might be worth working with using an eyeshadow primer or more blown out (say in the crease) than an all-over lid shade. This shade stayed on well for seven hours before I noticed fading on my skin.
