Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Review + Demo

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!

  1. I love this video! I've been looking everywhere for a video of someone who uses two different shades of foundation for darker skin tone. So, you used the darker shade around the outer areas because the skin is darker there, and then the lighter shade in the middle of the face because it's lighter there. Then blend, right?
