Review: Marc Jacobs The Lover Palette




I love Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con palettes. Full stop. The quality is fantastic and I really think you get what you pay for. I previously reviewed The Lolita and The Dreamer (review here) and till this day The Lolita is one of my favourite neutral palettes. 

The Lover palette was something I picked up from the Sephora VIB Rouge sale...I could't resist. I thought I'd be safe just going ahead and ordering it online because it was a neutral palette...come on, where could I go wrong....aaand then I opened and gave a, "Oh...huh..". I felt like a helium balloon slowly deflating with disapointment haha. 

Now the quality is still spot on and beautiful, just like I'd expect it to be, but it's the colours that don't float my boat. The colours are so pink...the picture above doesn't do it justice...I'm talking PINK PINK. These type of colours just don't suit me. So, if anything it was my fault and should have just waited to see it in person. Another thing to note is that you wouldn't really be able to do an entire look with this palette alone because the deepest colour in this palette is the mid tone brown (which is gorgeous), however this would pair beautifully with The Lolita palette if you already own it. 

Needless to say, this little number is going back to Sephora....it's just not going to work out between us. I can't say that I don't recommend it because the quality is amazing, I just would recommend seeing it in person if you aren't entirely sure on pink/rosey tones of eyeshadow. 

I hope this was helpful! What did you guys pick up from the VIB Rouge sale?

    1. I know!! I couldn't resist it...I just wish the colours didn't pull so orange on me when I wore them >.<
      But it is such a lovely palette with great consistency. I'm still a sucker for The Lolita!

  2. Just wanted to say thanks for this review! The VIB sale ends in about two hours as I'm typing this and I've been trying to convince myself I don't need to make this my fourth and final order of the sale (willpower? what willpower?). I haven't seen many reviews of this so far, and your photos and description have definitely convinced me that I should check this out in person, as other reviews haven't really shown how pink this might end up looking on me. So thank you!

    1. I'm so glad you found this helpful, Jess! Seriously, this VIB sale really killed my wallet...I placed three orders in total. Obviously will power isn't in my vocabulary haha! If you do end up picking this up I hope it works out better for you than it did me. The colours were just way to pink and orange-y for me. I am partial to warm tones to begin with but this takes it to an entirely different level.
