Talk about a throwback! I came across this little gem tucked in the forgotten archives of my local Beauty Supply store… and thought that it absolutely must go home with me. This was the last one, and it was looking pretty rough around the edges, so the SA was lovely enough to give me a significant discount on it… which made my purchase that much sweeter.
The finish on this powder is amazing. In addition to softening the overall effect of the skin, I detected the smallest amount of shimmer. The distinct yellow color is amazing on my warm toned skin, and the subtle gold hue makes it even better.
This is a pretty heavy swatch. Diffused properly… it just leaves an airbrushed look to the skin. It makes me smile to use the word ‘airbrushed’ to describe the performance of such an ancient brand. I think that’s a true testament to the quality of this product. No special ‘pigments’ or light diffusers that were discovered by the light of the Harvest Moon at midnight on some obscure island… just good old fashioned quality.
T. LeClerc has been around since … well … EVER. My grandmother used to use it… I remember smelling her powders and potions on in her powder room when I was a little girl. I bought this powder because it made me feel… whimsical. And, in many respects, makeup is very much about how we ‘feel’ at any given time. This makes me feel… pretty… in a fairy princess kind of way. LOL
T. LeClerc is on the pricey side. This little gem retails for $49. You can find out more about T. LeClerc HERE
