I am finally getting around to letting you know my thoughts of the Marc Jacobs 720 Glambition Eyeshadow palette that I picked up in March of 2018! If you are interested in what else I had picked up then you can find it here.
I picked up the Marc Jacobs Glambition palette with money I had received from Ebates, now Rakuten, last year. I had decided to pick up a product that I wouldn’t normally have paid for, I like to do that with ‘extra money’, whether it is Shoppers Bonus Redemption or Rakuten money. The palette has a hefty price tag at $65.00 CAD, which is pricey for a 7 shade eyeshadow palette. It is a beautiful looking palette though!
Here is what the Sephora website has to say- ‘A long-wearing eyeshadow palette that features seven shades, including four fashion finishes, velvet, satin, silk, and lamé—to layer and dress your eyes.’ Each palette features its own shade personality. Glambition (bare and bronze): She was infamous, known for seeking the most over-the-top glamour.’
The shades included in the Marc Jacobs 720 Glambition palette are - She Was (ivory with shimmer), Infamous (nude matte), Known For (golden copper metallic), Seeking (cool brown matte), The Most (pink metallic), Over The Top (chocolate brown matte), Glamour (black with shimmer).
I, of course, picked up the most neutral palette of the bunch. If I was going to pick up a palette that was that expensive I wanted one that I would get a lot of use out of. I have been using this palette for quite a while now and I can say that it was worth the $65.00 CAD price tag. I use the palette all the time, at least a few times a month. I have used all the shades and only have run into an issue with ‘Glamour’. When I use ‘Glamour’ it is usually as liner on my upper lash line, it tends to have quite a bit of fall out for me when I use it with a liner brush. ‘She Was’ has only the slightest shimmer to it so I tend to use it as a brow bone shade. ‘Infamous’ is a perfect crease shade for me to blend out and other shade, it is just slightly darker than my skin tone. ‘Known For’ is a beautiful warm copper shade that I tend to use as a lid shade. ‘Seeking’ is the shade I use mostly in the crease to deepen it up a bit. ‘The Most’ is another beautiful shimmer shade for the lid. ‘Over The Top’ is another beautiful lid shade, it has the slightest pink tint to it that I love. ‘Over The Top’ is the shade I tend to use to line my upper lash line and than I like to just slightly blend it up a bit into my crease to darken that up.
Every shade in the Marc Jacobs Glambition Eye-Conic Multi-Finish eyeshadow palette are soft and pigmented. They all blend out easily, even Glamour which surprised me. Do I think the palette was worth $65.00 CAD? For me, it was. I use this palette all the time and love how easily it blends out as well as every look that I have created with it. I am glad that I picked up the palette that I would get a lot of use out of. I do have my eye on a couple other Marc Jacob palettes, namely Fantascene and Steeleto, I will maybe pick one up during the next Sephora sale…
