Marc Jacobs Beauty Smash Glitz See-quins Glam Glitter EyeshadowMarc Jacobs Beauty Smash Glitz See-quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow ($28.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft pink with warmer undertones and flecks of silver glitter over a metallic finish. The consistency was more emollient in its base, almost like it was more composed of a ton of shimmer/sparkle/glitter and very little base pigment leaving the base more transparent. I found it was a bit overly emollient so the product slid around rather than adhered and built up or blended out around the edges.
As a result, I ended up with more fallout from fussing with this shade compared to others in the formula. It worked just fine for packing onto the inner tearduct or patting onto the center of the lid for a halo eye, where blending was less critical or spreading over a larger area wasn't necessary. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry as well as with a dampened brush. It stayed on well for eight hours with light fallout over time.
Note: The ingredient list shows Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET glitter) as an ingredient, but there were no warnings on the box nor on the product listing. It turns out that some of the previously released shades also include Polyethylene Terephthalate. The product is marketed for eyes, and it is called eyeshadow. Typically, products containing Polyethylene Terephthalate often come with a warning that they are "not intended for use around the immediate eye area" (like ColourPop Pressed Glitters), but there have been an increasing number of instances where brands include it and market those products for eyes specifically (like Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Gels and Glossier Play Glitter Gelees).
