Quick swatch! Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Super-Charged Foundation

I have nothing to declare.  Product not retained.

Of course yuh gyul found herself at Sephora on Friday, scoping out the new Marc Jacobs Beauty collection.  He’s got pretty much a full colour line.  Lots of beautiful shades.  I check out the gel foundation….and I must admit that I am impressed!  It comes in 16 shades and it actually has some deeper shades!  I swatched the darkest shade, Cocoa Deep, which is a deep, chocolatey brown that is pretty neutral.

I have not bought this…yet…but I applied some on my jaw line and it was almost an exact match! For reference, I am NW45 in M.A.C.  The formula is very lightweight, smooth  and sank into my skin and looked natural, like my own skin!  It felt amazing!  I would have liked a little bit more red in it, but hats off to Mr. Jacobs for creating a line that caters to women with medium to deeper skintones.  Of course I have not tested this for wear and durability, but don’t be afraid to check it out.  The price tag is rather hefty (US$48 for 1 fl. oz.), but look at it if you can.  Since it is a gel formula, it will probably work well on oily skin.

I hope that eventually the colour range is expanded to include some more medium-dark to deep shades, but I think it’s a good start!!  I can’t vouch for the rest of the collection, so see it for yourself.

Have you guys picked up anything??

S/S'12 Trend Report: NARS at Marc Jacobs

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Mr. NARS himself,  Francois Nars created this look for Marc Jacobs for Spring/Summer 2012.

Francois Nars for Marc Jacobs, S/S'12

The Inspiration:

“Marc had a lot of images of Patsy Klein, Amy Winehouse, and Cowboy Kate, a book from the 60’s whose character Kate had heavy eyelashes,” said Founder and Creative Director François Nars. “The complexion is meant to look like it’s glowing, like the girls have been dancing, and by eliminating the blush it gives a strange, otherworldly effect. The focus was really on the eye, with a well-defined brow. The combination of different touches creates a decadent, French sensuality and makes the girls more like characters.”

The look and products used:
