I received many questions regarding my recent post about the Marc Jacobs powder and foundation that I bought. At the time of posting I hadn't tried out the products yet and therefore I couldn't say much about them. Now that I have had the chance to use them, I am happy to share my feedback.
The translucent powder: It looks white but it is transparent when applied. It stays on for hours and I don't need to do any retouching. Another advantage is that it doesn't leave any beige mess behind on surfaces because it is transparent. Well, there could be a mess but you don't see it! I would definitely rebuy this powder.
The foundation: Well, my benchmark is Teint Couture by Givenchy. I only bought MJ foundation because my shade was not available. I love Teint Couture because it passes my ultimate cover test: it makes my freckles disappear. MJ provides good cover and lasts for hours without turning smudgy. It certainly comes very close after my beloved Teint Couture.
