I typically don’t wear glitter, but to me, the holidays are the perfect time to turn up the sparkle. The Marc Jacobs See-Quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadows are perfect for getting quick, glitter looks, both day and night.
Each shadow comes in a pretty glass pot, with a gold lid. While packaging isn’t everything, these definitely look pretty sitting on a vanity. Inside the lid is a small black press. Do not throw it away. Every time you use the shadow, the product is pressed back down to keep it mess-free.
While it will probably be more of a hassle once I get down to the bottom, this shadow is super easy to apply using a finger. I just dip my finger in to the soft textured putty-like shadow and enough product comes out to cover an entire lid. With just one crease color, and a single swipe per eye, this shadow makes it super easy to do a five-minute glam look to get you out the door and to all your holiday events in minutes.
The pay off is gorgeous and lasts all day, with or without a primer (or glitter primer). I have oily eyelids so that is major for me. The only downfall for this product is that the fallout is insane. You MUST apply this before doing the rest of your face makeup, or even skincare, because you will have to wipe it all off. I didn’t notice any fall out during the day after I finished my eye makeup.
If you can get past the fall out at application, I think these shadows are amazing… and for $28 each, they should be. There are some really wear-able everyday colors, such as the Topaz Flash and Copperazzi shades that I got. If you don’t mind wearing a bit of glitter to work, I think you could get a lot of use out of these, making them worth the splurge.
Would you guys go for the glitter this holiday season? Or do you wear glitter shadows year-round? Let’s chat!
