Call it luck, but every time I try a new product from the Marc Jacobs Beauty range, I am not disappointed. Each product leaves me wanting to try more and more. Which is exactly how I ended up testing out the Marc Jacobs Beauty Perfection Powder.
For all intense purposes, this is a pretty standard face powder that you typically apply after your liquid or cream foundation. It does give a little bit of coverage, but not enough personally for me to justify wearing it on its own.
However in terms of face powders, this is definitely up there. It helps mattify and smooth out my skin when applied on top of my foundation, and it is incredibly lightweight. It sounds cheesy to say it’s “feather-light”, but it really is. Certainly one of the many powders I’ve tried that feels barely there once applied.
Additionally, while it will crease after a while depending on your foundation, it doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry at all. I have found that some powders do leave the area around my nose a little dry after extended wear. Not the case here, my skin continues to feel “normal” till the end of the day and I don’t feel the need to rescue my skin with a ton of hydrating masks that night!
And another big seller for me was the packaging. It’s huge, yet very slim. Which makes it perfect for travel / on the go. Additionally because of its size, it comes with a massive mirror that is honestly better to use than any compact mirror I own. Bigger mirrors just make touching out and makeup application that much more fun 😉
