Marc Jacobs Beauty Steel(etto) Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Steel(etto)

Marc Jacobs Beauty Steel(etto) Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, limited edition cooler-toned palette (!!) that performed well! It has seven shades ranging from beige to inky black with five variations on taupe between the two. The shades coordinated well with each other with a nice mix of depth, though I caution that all but the beige and black hues went on deeper than they looked, so you might want to swatch and play a bit to get a better sense of composition and depth. The mattes were all more substantial, more velvety in feel, which helped them blend and work well with Sparkling, which was very sparkly.


Rule

Rule is a pale beige with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered well to bare skin and blended out easily while only sheering out a smidgen (without a primer). The texture was soft, silky, and smooth, though there was slight powderiness in the pan, which could result in fallout if I wasn’t careful to tap off the excess prior to applying it to my eye area. It lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed slight fading.

The Concrete

The Concrete is a medium taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, velvety texture that was a smidgen powdery in the pan, but it applied beautifully with even coverage that didn’t sheer out too easily. The eyeshadow diffused nicely along the edges, though. This shade stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

Jungle

Jungle is a medium, purplish-taupe with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easily built up to full coverage with a tap more on top. The eyeshadow had a smooth, velvety consistency that was finely-milled and blendable without losing its intensity on my skin. It wore nicely for eight hours before it started to show signs of wear.

Sidewalks

Sidewalks is a dirty beige with subtle, warm undertones and a bright, metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage that adhered well to bare skin and smoothed out easily. The texture was silky and soft, but there was some powderiness in the pan from it being more loosely-pressed. The eyeshadow applied well but had a touch of fallout when I blended it out. On me, it lasted for just over eight hours before fading noticeably.

Become

Become is a medium-dark taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff with a smooth, velvety texture that was a smidgen powdery in the pan but applied evenly and blended out easily along the edges. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Sparkling

Sparkling is a dirty, taupe-brown base with subtle, warmer undertones and flecks of blue and teal sparkle. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, but I found that it was a bit harder to apply with fluffier, more typical eyeshadow packing brushes. I’d recommend using fingertips or a flat, synthetic brush–or better yet, use a dampened brush. I tried it dry, and I had no trouble packing and pressing it on and getting solid eight-hour wear (with slight fallout), but using it with a wet brush, even with just water, minimized the fallout and made it faster to apply it.

Catwalks

Catwalks is a deep, cool-toned black with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan, but blendable and easy to work with on my lid. It lasted nicely for eight hours before I noticed any fading.
