REVIEW: Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette in Fantascene

Marc Jacobs Fantascene Palette Review & Swatches

Every summer, Marc Jacobs Beauty release a set of limited edition makeup products (the Coconut Fantasy Collection). It sells out really quickly and this year was no exception - I wanted the bronzer but missed out so settle for the Eye-Conic Longwear Eyeshadow Palette in Fantascene. I'm a huge fan of Marc Jacobs eyeshadows (see Brand Focus post here) so I knew there was a good chance this wouldn't disappoint.

I love the packaging of the summer collection - white with rose gold accents and I love how slimline the palette is, which makes it perfect for travelling. Inside are seven shadows in a variety of finishes: matte, satin and metallic, in peach, copper and brown tones.

Marc Jacobs Fantascene Swatches
From left to right: Flesh, Covets, Fantasy, She Said, Meet Ya, For More, On The Dance Floor. Swatches completely unedited.

From left to right, the shadows are:

Flesh: As the name suggests, this is a flesh/pinky-beige toned matte. Finely milled and soft, which makes it easy to apply and get even coverage.

Covets: A matte light brown/taupe. It has medium pigmentation but it can be layered if needed. Not quite as buttery soft as some of the shadows but not troublesome to work with.

Fantasy: A warm medium-dark coral matte. Slightly powdery to touch, however it applies and blends evenly and smoothly.

She Said: A stunning warm pinky-coral. Soft and smooth to touch, however it is best applied to the lid with fingers or a damp flat shader brush, such as MAC 239.

Meet Ya: A beautiful bright copper metallic. Not quite as smooth as She Said but the pigmentation is outstanding and I found it works well patted on with a flat shader brush or using my finger for a pop of colour/intensity.

For More: A matte deep brown with a hint of red. Smooth and finely milled, although I found that it requires building up to get full colour pay-off.

On The Dance Floor: A stunning warm coral-orange satin, with brilliant pigmentation. Feels slightly less smooth in the pan but applies very evenly and blends well.

The shade selection works well together and suits my green eyes and whilst the pigmentation and texture differs slightly between some of the shadows, overall I am very happy that I added this palette to my collection. I actually added it to my holiday makeup bag at the last minute and got a lot of use out of it last week. Ar £39, it isn't cheap and there are palettes out there with more shadows in them for that price (Too Faced, for example) but if you like the look of the shades, like limited edition palettes or Marc Jacobs eyeshadows in general, then I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to you.

Did you buy anything from the Coconut Fantasy Collection? What are your thoughts on this palette? I'd love to hear!
