If you know a makeup or beauty junkie who wants something special this holiday season, I have the perfect gift in mind. Or if you are looking for something fun for yourself. It is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye Con No. 20 The Free Spirit Plush Eye Shadow Palette. This palette is limited edition. It contains 20 of Marc Jacobs most soft and creamy eye shadows. These shades are his most popular and most beautiful.
I have done several looks with these and I can say for sure that they are the prettiest ones I have encountered from his line. What I love about them are the fact that they are extremely pigmented, soft, creamy and blendable with very little fallout. These are very high quality eye shadows with great pigmentation. Even the light eye shadows, have good pigmentation. You can see that below in the swatches. Sometimes this is not the case, but these eye shadows are very good. The light ones in this palette are all mattes. The matte shades blend well. They are fairly creamy. All of the shimmer shades are very soft and pigmented. They go on smoothly and blend quite well. The glitter shades have good pigmentation and have little fallout too. They actually have a good amount of glitter in the shadow that looks good on the eye. You can see that in the swatches below.

This is a great palette for anyone who loves eye shadows. Of the 20 eye shadows in this palette, 9 are true matte shades, 7 are shimmery shades and 4 are glitters. The shade descriptions are as follows (from top left to bottom right): very pale light matte mauve pink, light matte clay, light matte pale beige, matte cream, medium matte rose beige, shimmery mauve taupe, shimmery golden bronze, shimmery forest green, shimmery gunmetal, shimmery old gold, matte lilac taupe, shimmery taupe, shimmery copper, matte navy gray, glittery bright purple, matte eggplant, glittery black gold, glittery burgundy, glittery silver black and matte dark chocolate.
Here are some looks I did with the shadows, five different looks. Below are two photos of each look, showing the eye shadows on the eyes:
I think this palette would make a great gift for anyone who is a beauty or makeup junkie. Or for anyone who appreciates good quality eye shadows. It is sold out online already, which tells you that it went like hotcakes. It was highly coveted. It is still available in the store. Get it while you can. Definitely a good gift buy for yourself or someone else!
