I lucked out when @Influenster chose me to receive one of the new Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic shadow palettes.
I requested the green and gold Edgitorial palette, and that’s what I was sent to try out for free! I’ve been using it for almost a month, so I wanted to share my thoughts and swatches with you.
First, can you believe how sleek and gorgeous the slim, shiny black packaging is? It’s a pleasure to look at.
It has a large usable mirror too.
I chose Edgitorial because I thought this palette of neutrals, greens and golds would be great for fall, I had fewer of these shades already in my stash, and I thought many of the shades would suit my coloring.
Nevertheless, the Eye-Conic collection has 5 other color selections that might suit you better: pink-purples, plum-purples, neutrals, brights, and the red-oranges that are so hot this year.
Each palette contains a mix of finishes – mattes, metallics, and a little shimmer. It’s great to have everything you need in one palette.
Here are the color descriptions for the Edgitorial palette:
- Take A Memo: pale peach matte (in my swatches, I put this second rather than first in the hopes that it would show up better). This shade is almost a perfect match for my skin tone so it doesn’t show up too well. I use it for a natural look on my lids or under my brows.
- Next Season: white shimmer. This is a great shade for the inner corner, under brows or as a highlighter on my cheeks.
- We’ll See: milk chocolate matte. I probably get the most use out of this shade. I use it primarily as a crease shade for any look I create with this palette.
- Pleather Python: yellow gold metallic. Beautiful shade that I often wear in the middle of my lid for a pop of metallic gold. For the holidays, I think I’ll be wearing it to cover my lid for more bling.
- Making A Scene: bronze metallic. This is my favorite shade in the palette, but then, I’m on a bronze binge. Making A Scene looks great paired with my new Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Stash that I just wrote about here a few days ago.
- Enviously: deep green-grey matte that’s aptly named. I use this primarily in the outer V.
- Everywhere: black with a tiny amount of glitter. Black scares me at this stage of the game, so I must admit that I don’t use this one.

What’s It Like to Use the Palette?
The shades kick up a little dust in the pan. You can see it in the black swatch. But there’s no fallout from the brush when I apply them because they feel like butter on the skin and adhere very well, though I always use eye primer. They blend easily. They feel great on my dry lids.
The shades last until I remove them with no fading at all.
Here I am wearing the bronze Making A Scene on my lid with We’ll See in the crease. I used my Urban Decay Stash Eye Pencil along the lower lash line and in a skinny line along the upper lash line with a tiny wing.
