Marc Jacobs Beauty’s limited edition Style Eye Con No. 20 About Last Night has finally arrived and this one is a stunner. After seeing images of it surface online, I knew I had to have it. I placed an order through Sephora.com and I literally could not wait to unbox this palette when it arrived at my doorstep. Today I’ll be sharing images, product details, and swatches. Featuring 20 shades in a range of matte, shimmer, and metallic finishes, this palette surely has a wide range to colors to create looks for both day and night.
Like last year’s limited edition release (The Free Spirit Palette), this palette features a sizable mirror with a clasp closure, protectively housing the 20 shades within.
The palette is organized into 5 columns, grouped by quads organized from right to left.
This year’s palette features luxe gold packaging, a departure from the classic black MJB packaging we’ve come to expect. Nonetheless, it’s simply beautiful for the holiday collection releasing this year.
This year’s release includes five looks and face charts created by makeup artist Diane Kendal. The palette comes complete with a handy insert with a pictorial guide on how to dress your eyes for 5 different occasions: The Awards Show, Evening Swag, After Party, About Last Night-Daytime with Edge, and Just Like Us-Daytime Glam.

In total, there are 9 mattes, 9 shimmers, and 2 metallics.
The stand out shades to me are the metallic and shimmer finishes. They have the most amazing, creamy texture and felt buttery to the touch when swatched. The shadows are immensely pigmented, and the swatches above were taken with one swipe of my finger. With a range of shades that are both cool and warm, that can be worn both day and night, I suspect that this palette can really work for just about anybody. I am a huge fan of Marc Jacobs Beauty products, and I have found that rarely do their products disappoint. Though some of these shades may be similar to some of the other Style Eye Con. 7 palettes I own, my review here, the palette is exceptional in quality, value and presentation and I look forward to using it this Fall.
The Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye Con. 20 About Last Night retails for $99 USD and is now available for purchase at online at Sephora and the Marc Jacobs Beauty website. You can find it here.
