What else you need to know:
Beyond his fashion design, Marc Jacobs is also known as “the ultimate stylist” for making last-minute adjustments to perfect every look right before it walks down the runway. The eyeshadows in each Eye-Conic palette are inspired by textiles and layering, and come in four fashion finishes so you can be the ultimate stylist, too. Finish your look and let it stand out by layering a bright color or lamé pop on top.

Read the shade names from left to right for a short poem. The slim, seven-shadow palette was designed to feature the oblong infinity mirror, and was inspired by the rearview mirror of an automobile.

Each palette features its own shade personality:
Glambition (bare and bronze): She was infamous, known for seeking the most over-the-top glamour.
Let me preface this by saying: I don't wear too much makeup.

It's not that I don't WANT to, but two things stop me;
1. I really DON'T know how to apply it so I don't look like Mimi Bobek's little sister. (Only time THAT came in handy was during Choir concerts, since the hot stage lights muted it out a bit)
2. With the lack of saliva I have, any lipstick I have runs right off my lips and then I look like a ventriloquist's puppet, because I have makeup everywhere but my chin.

Personally, I don't think I look good with foundation, powder, and all the other stuff on, but have streaks down my chin, so I RARELY wear it. I will wear it for my videos, but otherwise I am usually just a sheer lipstick/lipgloss/lip balm and clear mascara kind of girl.

So, when I received this palette, I wan't sure what I'd ever do with it. I mean, most of these ARE colors I would wear, with the exception of 'Known For' and 'Glamour.' But again, I don't wear it enough to actively USE the palette.


^^What I received, with colors labeled^^

This palette has 4 different 'Fashion' finishes: Velvet, Satin, Silk & Lamé. But, apparently my camera didn't pick up the colors very well, so I'm going to go over them individually.

SHE WAS - Very beigish in color. I'd say it's the equivalent to a 'tan' foundation or powder shade or a 'Latte Coffee' color.
INFAMOUS - Peachy brownish shade. Much darker than any pictures show. I'd say this is a 'Coffee with Cream' coloring.
KNOWN FOR - The pictures show this as gold, but in person, it's more 'bronzy.' Very shimmery. This is one of the two lamé shades.
SEEKING - Another 'Coffee' shaded eye shadow. The photo shows it as being light, but it's more of a 'Hot Milky Chocolate' or a 'Espresso' shade.
THE MOST - Another lamé eye shadow. This is way more peach-toned than 'Infamous.' Again, very shimmery, but 'Known For' is the more shimmery of the two.
OVER THE TOP - This is more of a 'Dark Hot Chocolate'  or a 'Mocha Coffee' shade. Rich in the brown hues.
GLAMOUR - Very dark, almost BLACK in color. Perfect for the 'Smoky Eye' look that is so popular.

I really don't see disabled people having problems using this. The clasp opens easily and if you can apply eye shadow, this will be no different than other eye shadows.

This palette would make a great Stocking Stuffer for the makeup lover in your life. It is available from Sephora.com for $49.00. 5 other color choices are available through that link.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Great selection of colors, but Just not a palette I'd personally use.
