A little while ago I purchased the Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Foundation from Sephora here in Sydney when they opened. I have been wanting to try this foundation for literally years and with Marc Jacobs now available in store here I was really excited to finally get colour matched.
Here is my demo and review.
I forgot to mention in the video that the foundation does has a fragrance to it s if you are ultra sensitive, try it first or avoid it as it may cause your skin to become irritated.
It personally doesn’t bother me, but it does make me wonder why companies bother putting fragrances in foundations.
Good colour match and a god range of shades
Beautiful dewy finish.
Looks and feels like skin, doesn’t cake at all.
Feels incredibly light weight but still adds decent coverage
Long lasting without primer
Fragrance, if that’s something that bothers you
Little to no oil control. My t-zone got very oily by the end of the day and started breaking down foundation round my nose, even after powdering.
Here are some close up photos of it on the skin.
This photo is straight after application
This photo is after 8 hours wear. You can see how oily my nose is and I had powdered throughout the day.
Overall I find that I do really like this foundation and it would work well for those who are dryer and like a dewy finish to their foundation. If you are very oily, maybe not best for you unless you use a mattifying primer and powder throughout the day.
Have you tried this foundation?
