MarcJacobs Beauty O!Mega Gel Powder Eyeshadow swatches
So I had some free time so I decided to swatch these single eyeshadows from Marc Jacobs. They boast a get coated pigment and12 hour wear.
Here’s the official brand description: “A super-sized, 12-hour longwear eyeshadow, featuring gel-coated pigments, designed to minimize fallout and provide high-impact, crease-resistant color.
Bigger is better. Never worry about hitting pan again with this over-sized eyeshadow single that’s double the size*. This high-impact eyeshadow features innovative gel-coated pigments that glide on buttery smooth for intense payoff. It’s clinically tested for 12-hour longwear and stays true all day.
The shade range was curated by legendary makeup artist Diane Kendal to deliver the biggest, most-requested, most-flattering shades. The hand-picked colors are perfect for creating a polished, everyday look to a sultry, smoky eye, and also essential as a transition, highlight, or wear-alone shade.
Cut out the clutter and get only the best shades you need now and want forever. O!mega Shadow is the cashmere sweater of eyeshadows—the essential must-have in every beauty wardrobe that goes well with everything.
Finally, your favorite shades in a pan that lasts … “forever.”
Well I gotta say the “last forever” part is probably true. These pans are huge! As big as some blushes. So if you only get to use them occasionally, you will never ever finish it. However if these are shades that you use everyday, maybe it’s a good investment.
But here’s my personal opinion. I think these are too mediocre to be priced at $29 (I’m using the universal currency here). I have not tried them on for 12 hours to see if they really last, but I believe with eye primer you can achieve the same longevity with other shadows.
I think it is only worth it for people who will use these shades every single day. Like the description says “Cut out the clutter and get only the best shades you need now and want forever”. I think you should only get this if you will use them as a base color or transition shade (which you will use in combination with other palettes as well).
Below are swatches that I did instore.
The top 4 are matte shades. Dynam-O! has some glitter
Quite hard to see in the swatches, but Dynam-O! has sparkly flecks in the pan.
And next are the shimmer shades.
Below are closeups of each shade.
