I'm a little tardy to the party when it comes to the Marc Jacobs Genius Gel.
Better late than never! I showed up in just enough time to have a piece of cake
some watered down jungle juice and a dance with my friend's creepy uncle.
I digress. Now that I am hip to this foundation I am QUITE fond.
The first color I purchased coco deep 86 was a good match for the perimeter of my face
but not for the center. So I mixed in some Lancome teint miracle in 500w. They play
VERY well together and made for a nice pairing, but I didn't feel I was really experiencing
the full potential of the Marc Jacobs.
I went back to Sephora and purchased cocoa medium 84. I used 86 on the edges of my face and
cheekbones and 84 on the center. I would HAVE to say this is one of THE best color payoffs I have
achieved. I have had some GREAT success with other foundation Makeup forever HD #178 is AMAZING one color needed... but really pops with a contour and bronzer. Lancome my BAE... Teint Idole ultra in 540w is AMAZING. Only one color needed for the most part, but I also like to ad in a great highlighted dimensional look.
I say all that to say that I know a good foundation when I use it. This IS IT!
The wear is light and invisible. The coverage is medium yet buildable. It's a gel so it does have a rapid dry time but not as fast as many matte finish foundations. The texture is light and really lets your skin shine. It doesn't have a smell (though I've heard otherwise) and it applies like a DREAM with my "Pink-a-dot" brushes!
