Quick swatch! Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Super-Charged Foundation

I have nothing to declare.  Product not retained.

Of course yuh gyul found herself at Sephora on Friday, scoping out the new Marc Jacobs Beauty collection.  He’s got pretty much a full colour line.  Lots of beautiful shades.  I check out the gel foundation….and I must admit that I am impressed!  It comes in 16 shades and it actually has some deeper shades!  I swatched the darkest shade, Cocoa Deep, which is a deep, chocolatey brown that is pretty neutral.

I have not bought this…yet…but I applied some on my jaw line and it was almost an exact match! For reference, I am NW45 in M.A.C.  The formula is very lightweight, smooth  and sank into my skin and looked natural, like my own skin!  It felt amazing!  I would have liked a little bit more red in it, but hats off to Mr. Jacobs for creating a line that caters to women with medium to deeper skintones.  Of course I have not tested this for wear and durability, but don’t be afraid to check it out.  The price tag is rather hefty (US$48 for 1 fl. oz.), but look at it if you can.  Since it is a gel formula, it will probably work well on oily skin.

I hope that eventually the colour range is expanded to include some more medium-dark to deep shades, but I think it’s a good start!!  I can’t vouch for the rest of the collection, so see it for yourself.

Have you guys picked up anything??

Laters!!
