Review: Marc Jacobs Beauty The Lolita & The Dreamer Palette

Hello! Long time no blog post...I was out of town for the past week and like the brilliant person that I am forgot the cord to upload photos onto my computer *smacks forehead*  -___-

Anyway, I'm back and ready to chat about what I do best...caving into popular products because I'm a sheep and I have no will power. It could be worse, I mean it's just makeup (what I tell myself to oddly I justify things in my head).

Let's talk Marc Jacobs...




First off like everyone does, lets admire the lovely packaging. It's sleek, sturdy and perfect for travel. When the line first released I honestly thought it looked a bit cheap but it feels actually really nice and the whole look has really grown on me. 


This is the well known Style Eye-con No. 7 in The Lolita 206 . I told myself I didn't "need" this and I had no desire to buy this...but I was browsing the Sephora website, as one does, and decided to look through the Marc Jacobs line. I began reading reviews and you know how it goes, one thing lead to another and I ended up buying it later that week.  


Eyeshadow wise this was the only thing I took with me on vacation and all I could think of was "why did it take me so long to jump on this band wagon!?" Shock horror I love another neutral palette. I know there are millions of them out there but there's something about this one that just works. This is your "bright eyed and bushy tailed...I just had the best nights sleep" in an eyeshadow compact. The dark brown and chunky city shadow in the middle aren't the best textures in the world but they are entirely still usable and as for the rest...like buttah. Silky eyeshadow goodness. 

Which lead me to my next purchase...


The Dreamer 212. Of course I managed to find a Sephora while out of town and I picked this up not because I felt that The Lolita was lacking what I needed, but purely because I loved The Lolita so much I felt compelled to buy his newest neutral offering. Am I making any sense yet? No? That's okay. 


As you can probably see this one is much more warmer and perfect for the quickly ending summer months. Unlike The Lolita, there isn't a chunky glittery shade and the dark brown in this palette is insanely smooth and pigmented...actually, all of the shades are for that matter. Texturally speaking, The Dreamer surpasses the other but I find myself reaching for The Lolita every.single.day....but to be fair I only just got this one =]

Overall, I'm impressed...I really didn't think I'd love these as much as I do. You did well Mr. Jacobs...you did well. Now I'm eying his bronzer and I don't even like bronzer all that much...I have some serious problems people. 

See you soon!

  1. I've been eyeing Marc Jacobs eyeshadow palettes since I heard rave reviews about Lolita ... your swatches are gorgeous! The last thing I need is another neutral palette and these are definitely on the pricey side, but I'm going to be putting it mentally on my wishlist in case I ever feel like treating myself and splurging :)

    1. Honestly, I don't even know why I bought these because I certainly didn't need either of them (and they are easily dupable) haha...but I haven't put them down since and I'm really enjoying them! Thank you so much =]
      I love your blog by the way...I only recently stumbled across it and I've been binge reading haha.
