Whahoo! Marc Jacobs Beauty is cruelty free glamour babes! I was one of the lucky contestants to receive their New Fall Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette ($49) through Influenster for reviewing purposes.
I had no idea Marc Beauty was on the cruelty free list (logical harmony, cruelty free kitty, PETA). I just assumed that the brand was owned by Coty (not cruelty free), and I left it alone. Obviously, I got ahead of myself, judged too quickly, and did not do my research properly. Here is what I learned. Coty owns Marc Jacobs Fragrances, not Marc Jacobs Beauty, which is owned by Kendo-a Cruelty Free Company that works with other brands that we all know and love, such as Kat Von D, Bite Beauty, and Ole Henriksen.

So what gorgeous Palette out of the six available was I given from Marc Beauty and Influenster you wonder?
Frivoluxe! And boy is she beautiful.
The Icy cool toned gray and violet palette carries 7 shades, ranging in four finishes-Velvet Matte, Silk, Satin, and Metallic.
The eyeshadows come housed in a gorgeous modernesque all black sleek plastic case that includes a slender mirror so you can focus your attention on those smoldering eyes that are about to be created.
The formula is finely milled, intensely pigmented, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, all of the shades are blendable and buildable, providing long lasting wear. Because the eyeshadows are finely milled there is a good amount of kick back dust, and eyeshadow debris during application. Beware.
I lost track of time after 6 hours. My eyes were smmmmooookkkkiiinnnnn all day well into the night. You can customize the shades to your liking. They can easily be manipulated for day or night wear.
I absolutely love this palette. I already have my eyes on two others from this collection-Edgitorial (camouflage and gold) and Scandalust (rust and warmed browns with scarlet). I will have to wait for a special occasion like my birthday however. Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Palettes are a pretty penny. As scary as this is going to sound, fall (November baby right here!) is right around the corner. This frightening thought however, gives me plenty of time to save my dollars for a rainy shopping day!
Remember, when in doubt smokey eye it out!
Stay beautiful! Xo.
