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??
