LOTD/First impressions: Marc Jacobs

Hello everyone! So today I did 2 things for the first time: curled my hair by myself AND tried out the new Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con 3 palette in The Glam. So first impressions of the shadows: the matte cream colour is gorgeous and buttery, HOWEVER in my opinion would’ve been better as a shimmery cream/champagne since the other 2 colours have a bit of shimmer to them. I do like neutrals so this look today is perfect as the peachy-copper gives a little bit of oomph since I normally wear UD Naked Basics. I didn’t use the matte cream as I didn’t think it was cohesive to this look, so I used Barefoot from the Tarte Aqualillies as base/highlight. I then used the darker shade from the MJ palette for the crease, and then blended the peachy-copper into that to make it more wearable. On its own, the peachy-copper leans too orange for my liking, but blended in with the brown reminds me of Tom Ford’s Cognac Sable (which I tried over and over again to dupe in the fall since Tom Ford eyeshadows are not available in Canada). It looks subtle in the photo because of the sunlight coming in, but I hope you can still see the colour. 🙂 I am very satisfied with this look!
