Marc Jacobs The Vamp Palette Demo + Review

When I went to Sephora two weeks ago and finally got my hands on the Marc Jacobs Palette’s, I am telling you it felt like I had everything I wanted. There are many different set of palettes from the same line including ‘The Lolita’ which has taken the beauty bloggers by storm. I am a horder for all the natural bronzy shades and really wanted to avoid another neutral palette, so to venture out, I bought the notably sexiest palette shades. Here are my thoughts.

1. Pigmentation: This palette always requires a cream base or a primer to enhance the shades or the colours do not show up very well. Even though the colours are very strong in the palette, but do not transfer very pigmented on the eye-lid.

2. Blend-ability: The lighter shades barely make a difference on my eye-lid and need a lot of layering which does not happen with my Naked palettes. The darker shades are quite blendable and I do enjoy using them in my crease mostly.

3. Longevity: I think with Dubai’s changing weather, it is quite imperative the shadows I buy are long-lasting. However, this was quite a disappointment. I have to wear Maybelline 24 hour colour tattoo in the base to ensure the shadows have a longer staying power.

4. Looks: I really enjoyed playing with the beautiful shades to create sexy smokey eyes and here’s a creative look combining the cranberry, emerald and black shades.


Get the look:

1. Start by priming your eyes or using a matte cream shadow.

2. Using the cranberry shade from the Marc Jacobs The Vamp palette, apply it all over the eye lid.

3. Combining the muted brown and black define the crease and extend it a little.

4. The outer part of your eye should form a horizontal V (but blended really well)

5. Using the emerald colour, pat it in the centre of the lid. The colours should transition from cranberry to green to black.

6. Blend, blend and blend some more!

7. Using the same three shades, apply it on the lower lash-line.

8. Use a black eyeliner thinly on your upper-lashline and your favourite mascara.

9. Enjoy the look!
