There's a first for everything, and here's my very first Marc Jacobs beauty purchase--Marc Jacobs Object of Desire Face and Eye Palette ($69). Initially I was going to go for Marc Jacobs About Last Night Style Eye Con No 20 Eyeshadow Palette ($99) but after seeing the swatches online, I was convinced that I have dupes for almost all the colors in that palette. I still wanted to try Marc Jacobs products, especially his Style Eye Con No 7 Plush Eyeshadow Palette in The Lolita and The Lover for like the longest time. So when Marc Jacobs also released a limited edition Object of Desire Face and Eye Palette early this week, I checked it out and thought it would be a perfect travel palette and an everyday palette, and today I have a review of it on my blog :) !

So the gold packaging seems to be the theme that Marc Jacobs is going with for this year's holiday season as this palette is in a gold patent leather case. It isn't the most luxurious looking bag and I personally wouldn't use it as an evening bag as the description on Sephora suggests. If you unzip around the case, you'll see this black plastic sheet which I originally thought was the top of another plastic case (much like the Style Eye Con No 7). Unfortunately, it is just a sheet not attached to anything (in other words, I'll most probably lose it) and when you lift it you'll see the six eyeshadows, a blush, a highlighter, and a bronzer. So packaging wise, I am a bit disappointed, and I do not like how the lid doesn't stay open so it was a pain to even take this photo. With more usage I am sure it'll be easier though. I actually prefer Marc Jacob's hard cases a lot more.

I did find the eyeshadows, actually everything in this palette to be tad bit lighter than the photo you see on Sephora's website. That is a good thing and a bad thing because I was worried that the bronzer would be took dark on my NC25 skin and it wasn't, but the eyeshadows were much lighter than I had expected.

So here are the swatches of this palette. Dimmer wasn't very pigmented but can we just stop for a moment and talk about In the Dark? That was one hella pigmented eyeshadow (there's bronzy shimmers in it) and it was not at all chalky nor dry! I found In the Dark, along with Candlelight to be the most pigmented eyeshadow in this entire palette and these two are my absolute favorite!

As for the blush, highlighter and bronzer, I can see why people say such great things about Marc Jacob's new products as they were so smooth and buttery but with amazing pigmentation! And becase it is so buttery, all of these blended like a dream.

I thought I would have many dupes for Candlelight but I don't! The closest one I could find was BECCA Champagne Pop but seriously Candlelight is just an amazing peachy golden shimmer eyeshadow that almost looks foiled. And In the Dark is just phenomenal.

The photo on the left was taken prior to applying eyeshadows, blush, bronzer, and highlighter  from Marc Jacobs Object of Desire Face and Eye Palette. I used all three shades in the first row--I applied Candlelight all over the lid, Light On on the inner corners, and Dimmer on the outer thirds. Because In the Dark was so pigmented, I used it as an eyeliner and that really helped me create this look super quickly. Then I used the bronzer, blush, and highlighter included in this palette.

Do you see that glow? It does have a metallic finish to it and I think this does accentuate my pores quite a bit as well, especially when I am not being careful and go all heavy-handed with this highlighter.

I honestly cannot get over this Candlelight eyeshadow and am really surprised that I don't own anything similar to this! Will most definitely hit pan on this eyeshadow, and perhaps on the entire palette! :)
