Reviewed: Marc Jabobs Beauty Night Owl Palette

I have had a Marc Jacobs Trio Palette for a bit over a year and I was very impressed by it right
away. It was pigmented and blended beautifully well. I'm not sure why but I just kept putting off getting a full palette. There was just always something else that I'd pick up instead. My blogging friend, Julie, from Collective Beauty, has done several beautiful post on her Marc Jacobs palettes (here's her latest one) and I wanted one every time she spoke about it. An order was made and here it is!
I looked at tons of swatches on line of this palette, from Sephora and other bloggers; to be honest, none of them looked like the colors do in person. I tried my very best to capture the Night Owl properly. The textures are so smooth and buttery. 1,3, and 5 are shimmer shades. 2, 6 and 7 are semi-matte with glitter/shimmer running through them. 4 is Matte with a slight bit of pearl to it. This palette could work for summer night or day looks really well and I absolutely love 5! So often colors look like that in pan and look totally different when swatched. But no, it looks just as nice. The only color I wasn't wowed by is 1 as it doesn't go onto the brush as intensely as it swatches and there is some glitter fall out because of it.
The shades all blended really well and felt nice on my lids. I picked this palette because I don't have anything quite like it and I have a lot of palettes. The packaging is ultra sleek and travel friendly, while giving a luxurious feeling in hand. The cloth sleeve that comes with it is a nice touch to protect the beautiful gloss finish packaging from getting scratched. (Though finger prints are unavoidable.)
Over all I think this palette is well worth the $59. as you do get a very pigmented, high quality
formula that looks true to pan. I would totally buy another palette from the Marc Jacobs Beauty range and would recommend them to anyone in the market for a really nice palette.

Do you have any Marc Jacobs makeup that is a must try? Tell me in the comments!
