I was introduced to the joys of marbled eyeshadows a few years ago, and while I currently don’t own too many of them, for a few months I’ve been obsessed with this one from Vincent Longo. The Pearl X Eyeshadows come in five different shades, the one I own is Code 6 Pink.
Admittedly, when I first received it I was a little scared about the grey shade in there. I have light skin with warm undertones and grey has always washed me out. It’s a color that I’ve virtually eliminated from my wardrobe so I wasn’t overly excited to put it on my face. Luckily, I was dead wrong about the grey in this eyeshadow.
When mixed together the eyeshadow is a lovely shimmery pale lavender pink color. If you have brown eyes you will absolutely love this eyeshadow – it really sets off my brown eyes, which a quality not found in many eyeshadows IMHO.
The swatch above is pretty true to life – the grey and blue give depth to the pink, so it goes from being a basic shadow to one with more depth. The texture is pretty silky, and the color payoff is off the charts.
Each Vincent Longo Pearl X Eyeshadow runs about $25, which is more on the pricey side, but considering the color payoff and quality of the product, and the fact that it’s one of those products that will last forever, if you can, I think it’s a splurge worth making. You can pick it up on the Vincent Longo site, here.

I really love this color! I use alot of those purpleish tones for my hazel eyes and I love how it makes them pop a little more.
I’ve never seen or used a marbled eyshadow. It looks very pretty. I’d like to get some for my daughters–they love to use eye shadow and I’m sure would make it a statement of their own as they have beautiful eyes-it would only enhance them-thanks for sharing
Yes! I agree, Vincent Longo has some of the coolest cosmetics and eye color palates around.
Back in the days when I wore makeup I learned early that quality eye shadow just worked better than cheaper shadows. I love the shimmer this shows on you an the blended color is beautiful
I love the shimmer in it!
OH, I love this shadow! I’m going to add it to my list.
I love Vincent Longo and I definitely need to purchase new eyeshadows. Mine are so outdated.
I tend to shy away from “shimmery” eye shadows, but this one looks lovely! I might try it!
Love the color – I am going to have to look at more Vincent Longo products – I haven’t tried them before. Thanks!
Those are beautiful colors of eye shadow. I really like them.
