I am a foundation junkie. I am always on the lookout for new foundations that will work with my very oily skin. I picked up this Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Oil–Free Foundation a couple weeks ago and wanted to share my thoughts.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Oil–Free Foundation retails for $55 dollars. From Sephora it says that this foundation is, “lightweight creamy mousse into a matte, feather-light powder for a flawless finish. Infused with hydrating ingredients like coconut water and amino acids, this formula derives its velvety texture and transformative properties from Marc’s exclusive Melt-On™ technology.”
I would consider this foundation more of a medium coverage foundation than a full coverage foundation. This foundation covers any redness but doesn’t really cover acne spots. I use a beauty blender with this and it works wonderfully. This foundation feels so nice on the skin. Its very smooth, lightweight, and just feels really nice on. It really does “melt” on and does not feel heavy at all! This shade is a perfect match for my yellow undertones! The swatch I have below isn’t even rubbed in and is almost invisible! Even though I love the application, the finish, and the way it feels on, its not meant to stay on my face for long periods of time, even with primer. I only wear this foundation when I know I will only be out for a couple of hours. I would not personally wear it to work if I had to work 8-12 hours. I am sure it would be amazing on someone who was not oily though. DARN MY OILS!!
The packing is very slim and doesn’t take up much space at all. Since its not in a bottle with a pump you don’t have to worry about spills or accidental pumps with foundation coming out.
Have you tried this foundation yet?! Let me know what you think about it!
