Marc Jacobs Accomplice Instant Blurring Beauty Powder Swatches
Hello everyone, following my previous blog, here are the Marc Jacobs Accomplice Powders. In this line, he also released concealers (which are the best I’ve ever tried). So if you’re interested, you can check out my review of the concealers in the link below.
Here’s the brand’s description of these powders: Totally chic, like a favorite accessory, Accomplice Instant Blurring Beauty Powder makes touch-ups effortlessly glamorous. Sweep it on with the built-in brush to give skin a warm, allover glow. It contains just a hint of perfecting pearl pigment to diffuse light and filter away the look of imperfections. In the morning, use it to set and finish your makeup, as well as throughout the day to touch-up and reduce shine without looking dull or cakey. It’s available in four flattering shades, with each shade spanning multiple skin tones. Take this magic skin filter wherever you go to touch-up on the run.
Slide out the silver-colored brush handle and sweep on Accomplice all-over face or on areas you want to touch-up. To return the brush to the holder, lift up the top cover. Replace the brush and snap the cover shut.
I liked how the brush is included on the cover, a genius idea really, so you can always touch up on the go.
Formula wise, I think these are so-so. It didn’t wow me. Although, I have to say I like how these powders aren’t matte, they have a certain level of pearliness in them. I really like that. It makes the powder not feel flat, and i like a good illuminating powder on the go. But like I said, it’s not THAT wow-ing.
There are 4 shades available.
Ingénue: illuminating light sand
Siren: brightening soft peach
Muse: warming soft tan
Starlet: bronzing golden cocoa

And more closeups of each shade. You can see here that the powders aren’t matte. The last shade can almost work as a bronzer for me.
