Contouring seems to have become the beauty trend of the century. Perfectly sculptured cheeks are a must nowadays and so everyone is after that perfect bronze shade. I think I’ve found mine. Being as pale as Caspar the Ghost contouring is difficult. Either the shade is too orange or way too orange. Finding that cool toned contour is so difficult but this Marc Jacobs one has it cracked.
The palette contains a contour shade and a highlighting shade. Which is helpful as it has everything you need in one place. The bronzer shade is so pigmented you just need one little line and you have perfectly chisled cheeks. I like to apply this with a sharp edged brush and blend it upwards with a fluffy brush. This lets you have a stark line underneath with a smokey contour on top. The product is actually a powder but feels a lot like a cream which is an interesting texture. It gives you the best of both worlds. Also the amount you get is absolutely enormous. This will honestly last years and years.
As for the highlighting shade, it appears to be like a banana powder. It is a creamy powder of an off white kind of colour. I like to apply this under my eyes and below my contour. It is sort of like a brightening powder crossed with a matte highlighter. You can use a flat brush to pack this on the face or a contour brush to lightly sweep over the top of your skin.This powder leaves you matte all day long with more of a bright and youthful looking complexion. As the consistency of this is on the creamier side there is hardly any fall out which means again that the product will last you a really long time.
This is the first product I have tried from Marc Jacobs and i have to say I am incredibly impressed. The packaging is so sleek and the metal embellishing gives it such a premium look. The huge mirror is such a nice touch too. Without a doubt this makes the palette easy to travel with as you always have a mirror and snachted cheek bones. Undeniably Marc Jacobs is a very expensive brand so keep your eyes peeled for deals across different sites. I picked this palette up in TK Maxx and really couldn’t resist it! The stock is always changing at TK Maxx so keep checking in for the best deals.
