MARC JACOBS launched his makeup line at Sephora I knew I had to try it. I personally had high expectations for this palette after seeing some positive reviews. However after testing this palette and forming my opinion I have to say that I don’t feel it is worth the price. Is it fancy looking yes, but is the pigmentation good? Not really.I’m a complete sucker for high-end eye shadows. I often feel the pigmentation warrants the money and when
I guess I set my expectations super high for this one, which may be why I felt, disappointed. The first thing that I noticed is that the 4th and 5th shade is almost identical. The matte shadows are really soft but not as pigmented as I would like. If the mattes were the only shades in the palette I think I would have been more pleased, however the glitter shades are nothing less than a mess. I am use to working with glitters and I find even with the best mixing mediums and glitter glue it becomes so messy. If I had to rate this palette I would give it a C and this good of a rating due to how nice the packaging is on this palette.
Enough of my chatter, let’s look at some swatches! Even in the picture you can see flecks of glitter fall out everywhere, which frustrated me more than anything! Dear Lolita…I really wanted to love you!
Why have I not returned it? Simply this is due to the fact that I am trying to make myself love it. The bottom line is that I don’t think this palette is anything special. After months of having it my opinion has not changed. I hope that I soon find a way to love it, but I don’t see this in any way as being a palette worth the price point. Now I want to make it clear that this is just my opinion and many people truly love this palette, however this one in my opinion is just not worth it.
Have you tried the Marc Jacobs Lolita palette? Do you have the same thoughts on this
