Presenting! Edgitorial, the Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow palette by Marc Jacobs Beauty. This grungy, green palette is so sleek (and dare I say edgy). The deep olive tones running throughout this palette give me serious punk rock vibes. This palette has been in my collection for over a year but I recently rediscovered it. Getting reacquainted with Edgitorial gave me that new palette feeling, so I thought I would review it. Let’s see how Edgitorial performs, (it’s so hard to keep typing Edgitorial correctly).
Marc Jacobs Beauty describes the Eye-Conic palettes as “Empower your inner eye stylist with these ultra-luxe eyeshadow palettes, each featuring four fashion finishes: buttery matte velvet, shimmering satin, sparkling silk, and metallic lamé. Each curated palette includes a covetable mix of chic neutral, wearable shades and provocative pops in a new super-plush shadow formulation to cover lids in lasting, velvety-rich pigment. Available in six different colorways, choose the wardrobe that speaks to you, then layer it on to make the ultimate impression”.
Take a Memo – matte light warm beige. Take a Memo is more powdery than the other mattes in this palette. This shade was difficult to blend for a neutral beige. I use lighter shades firstly, for setting my eyeshadow primer and secondly, as an eyeshadow “eraser”. This shade is fine for those two purposes but there are definitely better shades like this.
Next season – shimmer bright white. I’m not exaggerating calling Next Season a bright white – this shade is blinding! The tiniest bit of this shade lights up my whole face. Next Season is chunkier in texture but it applies evenly and goes on silky smooth.
We’ll See – matte medium brown. We’ll See applied evenly and blends beautifully. This shade has a smooth texture that makes it easy to work with. We’ll See is pigmented enough to blend-out the crease in one layer. This is such a user-friendly and functional shade with A+ quality.
Pleather Python – metallic glittery gold. This is my least favourite shade in the palette. The glitters in this shadow are chunky and it sheds glitter even when I’m not using this shade. I needed to use this shade wet to make the shadow adhere to my eye. The pigmentation was also improved by applying Pleather Python wet. There was a minor amount of fallout with this shade.
Making a Scene – shimmer olive-green. This shade is stunning! It’s rare these days for me to add a unique shade to my collection but Making a Scene is a standout. The quality of this shade is fantastic. Making a Scene goes on pigmented, has zero fallout and blends well. Making a Scene really pops when applied over a base but also looks great without a base. This is my favourite shade in the palette.
Enviously – matte dark green. Enviously performed well on the eye. I was surprised by how well it blended. Enviously has even pigmentation and can be built up without getting patchy. This isn’t the most everyday friendly shade – but when I need a green matte that lasts all day I’ll use Enviously.
Everywhere – matte black with glitter. This glittery black is super pigmented. Though, the glitters don’t stick around when the shadow is applied. Everywhere goes on nicely but there’s a mountain of fallout after it’s applied. Everywhere blends well and lasted 7+ hours on my eyes.
- This palette contains7 x 0.03 oz/ 0.8 g of product.
Marc Jacobs Beauty has stuck with the same style of packaging for a few years now. The packaging the brand uses is very simple and sophisticated, reflecting the Marc Jacobs brand. The palette is thin but still has a substantial weight to the palette. It feels like a luxury item. Though, it feels fancy – the shiny black packaging gets covered in finger prints.
The most unique packaging detail is the shade names are printed on the back of the palette forming a sentence. The shade names working together as a sentence is a creative detail. Though, I would still prefer the shade names printed on the inside of the palette.
The quality of the eyeshadow in this palette is fantastic. There are four different finishes in the palette of only 7 shades. I could have lived without the two super glitter shades. The glitters are on the chunky side and that’s not my preference but overall the shadows are great. Though, with only 7 shades in the palette I find it difficult to come up with a variety of looks. Most of the looks I’ve created with this palette have looks similar – (pretty but similar).
Another slight downside is all the shadows have a slight olive tone to them. They’re beautiful – but I found looks could get muddy when blending. Not because the shadows were bad but because they have a similar tone and kind of looked the same when blended.
Marc Jacobs Beauty is not a cheap brand. This palette costs $59.50 CAD at Sephora for 7 shades, (obviously a high price tag). The quality is great but you’re definitely paying a hefty price for the name on the packaging. I actually have my eye on a few other Marc Jacobs palettes but I’m debating whether I want to pay nearly $60.00 CAD for 7 shades again.
I bought this palette over a year ago. At the time, I never learned to love it. I actually considered returning it because I couldn’t make the shades work for me. Edgitorial fell to the bottom of my makeup drawer – forgotten. I was randomly sorting through my makeup recently and rediscovered my only Marc Jacobs Beauty palette. I persevered, and figured out how to make the olive tones work for me. Edgitorial and my Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions Palette have been a gorgeous green combination. I couldn’t be happier I didn’t return Edgitorial.
Until next time,
