SPF and flash-photography never looked so good together
I received this foundation complimentary from Influenster on behalf of Marc Jacobs Beauty. So thrilled to be able to test this out and review for the blog! Click more for the video and full review of my thoughts on the Marc Jacobs Shameless Foundation.
Marc Jacobs knocked it out of the park with this packaging in terms of travel-friendliness. The foundation is housed in a very durable plastic bottle that has just enough give to be able to squeeze the foundation out without causing concern for possible punctures. This slim, lightweight bottle is only slightly thicker than my iPhone and can fit completely in my palm. I love this because it won’t take up as much room in my travel makeup bag – that is precious makeup real estate! Twist off the cap and you see a small opening for the makeup to flow out. No need for a pump with this one!
The claims of the Marc Jacobs Shameless foundation are a mile-long. Self-setting, invisible SPF, flashback-free, and hydrating? Sign me up! I had to move a little faster than usual to get this foundation buffed in before it sets. Other than that, I love this foundation. It is medium coverage so a few blemishes and hyper pigmentation spots still showed through. This foundation stated that it was build-able but unless I had the hands of The Flash, by the time I got around to doing a second coat it had already dried down and I didn’t want to cake up this “youthful-look” foundation.
Once the foundation was set and the rest of my makeup was applied, I was in love! I want to note that using a dry foundation brush was the best application tool for me. This is also another added bonus because I don’t have to worry about wetting a Beauty Blender when I’m on the go. Feel free to test it out with your preferred way for applying foundation, all skin is different.
Overall, I really enjoyed the Marc Jacobs Shameless foundation! I wore it for over 10 hours and didn’t get noticeably oily. I’m super excited to have a compact, travel-friendly foundation take with me this summer. Be sure to watch the video about for a full demo and wear test.
