Marc Beauty Holiday 2018 See-Quins Eye Shadow

Holiday Collections are in full swing and I couldn’t be any happier! There’s something special about limited edition releases, bundled gift sets and luxurious packaging, that can’t be found during the rest of the year. Today, I wanted to share with you details on the Marc Beauty Holiday 2018 See-Quins Eye Shadow. You’ll definitely see what I’m talking about when you read below.

Marc Jacobs Beauty See-Quins Eye Shadows are a part of the Marc Beauty Holiday 2018 Collection.

Available in 6 shades. I tried out the following shades, marked with a * :

  • Glamethyst 88 (sparkling amethyst) *
  • Flashlight 80 (icy opal)
  • Gleam Girl 82 (champagne beige) *
  • Glam Noir 84 (icy black)
  • Copperazi 86 (fiery copper) *
  • Topaz Flash 90 (smoky bronze) *

See-Quins Glam Glitter Eye Shadows are housed in pots with reflective gold caps. Make sure you don’t toss out the security cap, as it presses on the open pot of product, to keep it from spilling and keeping the product leveled.

Upon first glance, the shadow appears like crushed sequins (fitting to its name) with super-shimmering dimension. Marc Beauty’s official description states that its ‘demi-pressed process allows the pigments to apply more vividly and gives the glitter maximum sparkle.’

It is very loosely packed, at least 50% of it is.

It can be built up for an intense glittery look or softly applied for a subtle wash of shimmer.  Each of the shadows yield a very sparkly colour that is almost entirely opaque. As they each have a base colour in addition to the glitter. Compared to clear gel formula glitter shadows, which require a base shade no matter what.

The See-Quins Eye Shadows provide high impact shimmer, but to maximize its colour payoff. I definitely recommend using an eye primer or even a glitter specific base to prevent fall out.

I preferred to pack on the product with either my fingers or a flat synthetic brush, that has been sprayed with setting spray.

Here are some swatches of the See-Quins Eye Shadow applied on its own:

In terms of wearability, I wore Champagne Beige to an Engagement party and it lasted well over the 8 hour mark. I had no issues with fall out, granted that I used an eye primer and setting spray to lock in the look.

These sparkly shades can be used for more than just eye shadow. You can spread the sparkle by applying it to your cheekbones, collarbones or other parts of your body.

I hope you found this review helpful! I can’t wait to check out some other pieces from the Marc Beauty Holiday 2018 Collection!

Marc Beauty Holiday 2018 See-Quins Eye Shadows retails for $28 CAD and is available online and in store at Sephora.

    I would like to purchase a bottle of Marc Jacobs Icy Opal in his Flashlight.
    Nowhere in the U.S. seems to have it.
    Thanks you Ernestine

      Hi! Even the Canadian Sephora currently doesn’t have that shade in stock! 🙁
