The Accomplice Instant Blurring Powder is one of the products included in the most recently released collection by Marc Jacobs Beauty, and of the items in this line, it’s already probably the most reliable—but that’s not to say it doesn’t come with its own issues.
As is the standard with any product by Marc Jacobs Beauty, the packaging of the product is sleek, elegant, and very sexy. The case is a lacquered, almost vinyl-esque (in terms of shine) black. The outer area of the case also includes the snap compartment for the product’s unique built-in brush—which might not be the best powder brush on the market, but it’s absolutely handy.
In terms of the powder itself, the product is quite finely-milled and pressed pretty firmly in the pan, so it’s not very prone to getting messy. As promised in the product’s name, the powder delivers a blurring effect by smoothing out imperfections in the face. But the main caveat is that the product doesn’t carry enough coverage, and it is seriously lacking in mattifying or oil control properties.
In general, for $49.00, we feel that this product does some pretty great work, but perhaps not enough to truly justify going out and getting it.
SUITABLE FOR: Normal to dry skin types.
- The Marc Jacobs Beauty Accomplice Instant Blurring Beauty Powder is available in four shades: Ingenue (Light), Siren (Light-Medium), Muse (Medium-Dark), and Starlet (Dark).
