Hello everyone! Today we talk about Marc jacobs genius gel review.This is the foundation Genius gel Marc Jacobs .I bought it at the same time as the concealer Re (marc) able of the same brand. Besides, it’s not the first or the last product I’ll have to introduce you to Marc Jacobs!
I love this brand, the products are of very good quality and I am really fan of their packaging very sober and very class. It is simple I can go to Sephora without feeling magnetic towards this stand!Certainly the prices are a little high but I often find myself a little excuse with the -20%;)
Favorite for the foundation Genius Gel by Marc Jacobs
The brand has 3 in total: the famous Re (marc) able (the favorite of Cyrielle) , a compact powder foundation and the liquid foundation Genius Gel.
Marc Jacobs describes it as “A long-lasting revolutionary gel foundation that wakes up your skin to restore its shine and natural clarity.”My skin had evolved from fat to mixed, I was looking for a foundation of light (but not too much) which can cover my irregularities of pigmentation without being too covering.
Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Review
In view of the description and attracted by the nice packaging I cracked immediately!The Genius gel is presented in the same way as the remarkable foundation, in a transparent bottle with a lacquered black cap. It has a pump which allows delivering cleanly and hygienically the product.
I chose it in the shade 22 Bisque Light which is perfect for my complexion.There are 16 shades in total of which fairly dark shades compared to the concealer Re (marc) able which does not include any shade for matt skins. It’s a bit illogical, though.
To make up my complexion, I have several options, either brush or beautyblender. Personally, I prefer to use the sponge. I find it faster to use and rendering is always more beautiful and more natural.I press the bottle pump twice and this is enough for the whole face.
The texture is pretty fluid I find and fresh. I think that’s because it’s such a freeze. It is really super nice, I like the smell too.The Genius gel works very easily, so you can take your time to apply it and especially apply.
Regarding the rendering, I am completely fan. Its light to medium coverage allows to easily unify my complexion and especially make it appear brighter. Like the matte-effect foundations I usually use, the Genius gel gives me the impression of a fresh, healthy skin.
I really cannot fault it! Even though I must admit that it cannot camouflage my buttons, my skin is still magnified, while keeping its “natural”.Be careful, however, if you have strong drought zones or very marked buttons, this foundation will not be able to camouflage them.
At the dress level, I have some reservations. This foundation with a fresh and light texture and a gel finish looks perfect for the summer but it is precisely at this point where you cannot use it! Faced with high heat, the Genius gel does not make the weight and does not hold at all.On the other hand, on days when the temperature was rather moderate, I had nothing to report.
To keep a fresh, luminous and above all long-lasting look, I powder with the Sephora smoothing glowing powder that I introduced to you last week. This powder makes it possible to smooth my pores at the level of my zone T (especially my nose) and to fix at the same time my foundation.
I finish with some spray of my Caudalie beauty water which has become one of my essential everyday beauty gestures (I even learned to appreciate its smell!).
At the end of the day, good news, the foundation was not oxidized. My forehead is certainly a bit shiny but it is really correct compared to other foundations that I could test. If you wish you can do a touch up powder in the day, for my part I do without.I like this second skin effect side and this quite natural shine that comes to settle without being too greasy.
The pros :
- – Bright and natural rendering
- – Unifies the complexion well
- – Light to Medium coverage
- – Suitable for all skin types
