School is almost over so my days are getting busier and busier, but I have been loving this foundation recently and I wanted to share my thoughts on it before finals start 😊😊
- Unique dot applicator
- 2x the pigmentation
- 24-hour full coverage wear
- Flawless finish
- Contains patented Marc Jacobs’ golden pigments that enable effortless blending
- Formulated without parabens, sulfates, or phthalates
- 22 shades, ranging from Ivory Light 10 to Cocoa Deep 86
I wear the lightest shade, Ivory Light 10, which is very fair but has pink undertones. Unlike a lot of foundations where the lightest shade is yellow tinged, this one completely matches my skin tone. Plus, this product has two times the pigment of other full coverage foundations, making it unrivaled. The full, matte coverage makes my skin look glowing and flawless. Unlike other foundations that can go without being shaken, I find if I don’t shake this one, it doesn’t apply nearly as well.
The dot applicator makes it super easy to control how much I apply and to customize my coverage. I dot my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin, and then blend. It is best to start with less and blend before adding more so it doesn’t not dry or streak. While you can apply it with a buffing foundation brush, I prefer to use my fingers.
A really neat feature of this foundation is the patented patented Marc Jacobs’ golden pigments. They are wrapped in lecithin, which is biochemically similar to skin, making the foundation blend perfectly into skin. Extracts of sunflower, jojoba, and acacia also add to the blendability.
A huge plus of this product, and the entire Marc Jacobs Beauty brand, is that it does not test on animals. While it is not a vegan line, the majority of the products do not contain animal byproducts.
The only downside I see to this product is the price tag: $69. My mother actually bought this one on her hunt for a foundation and I tried it and fell in love with it. I don’t think I would re-purchase this foundation to add to my everyday makeup routine, but the flawless coverage has shot it to the top of my holiday makeup shopping list.
Have you tried this foundation before??? What did you think of it???
