If you want max coverage, this is a great option. Like many cream stick foundations, it can feel thick, but not super dry. In fact, I like to sheer this out a bit with a drop or two on facial oil and a sponge. At $10 for a huge amount of product, this is also a super economical kit option for makeup artists. I have a few shades and mix and match for clients. They're somewhat difficult to mix unless you heat it up by mixing it on a hand palette. It can perform as a concealer as well. All in all, I find that it has decent staying power when set with powder, but just use caution when building it as it can definitely get cakey if you apply too much.
Such a great foundation at a super affordable price! I use a darker shade to mix in with my other foundations when I fake tan and I'm happy to report it plays well with others. Even on it's own, it goes on smoothly and gives decent coverage. It's definitely buildable. As a working makeup artist, I like it so much that I keep a few shades of this in my kit to use on clients with many different skin types. I have yet to see it not perform well on any certain types.
A really beautiful foundation. I feel like the price is a bit hefty given that it's drugstore, but worth the money. It has higher coverage than most, but dries pretty fast and doesn't cake up. It looks very natural and lasts well with and without setting spray. The shade range is just okay, but you gotta love that it has SPF in it.
Not a bad choice at all. My issue with the particular shade "Power Violet" is that it fades quickly, even when using color safe shampoos. Now, this is par for the course with red shades, but I just couldn't deal with the dull reddish-brown it faded into. It's no more damaging than other box dyes and I will say that it was fairly easy to bleach out. I mean, I had to live with orange hair for awhile, but not as long as I would have imagined.
Absolutely my favorite setting spray for my brides. It does exactly what it says and seals the makeup on the face without altering the look. I believe this is the setting mist of choice for drag queens and Disney characters at Disney Parks. If it can hold up for hours in 100+ degree heat, it can handle a teary bride or turnt up drag queen. I wouldn't use it for every day since it is so intense, but it's a must have for special occasions and for makeup artist kits.
I just laugh every time I see the wand in this product. I have absolutely no idea who would actually love the giant ball on the end. The product gets all over the face if you don't have huge brows. Totally impractical. I give it two stars because the actual brow mascara isn't half bad. Not terrible, but not the best I've ever used. Plus I find the shades lean a bit toward the red side and I'm not about that life.
Meh. That's how I feel about this. I don't think it extends the life of my makeup and I don't think it gives my makeup a better look. Sure it's cheap, and it's not bad, but I'd spring for the L'Oreal or even Hard Candy Fast and Fabulous setting spray. It's not that much more expensive and actually does help my makeup perform better and longer.
Review for: Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation 22 Bisque Light 0.63 oz
Awful. Absolute garbage. I'm glad I bought this for a discount at Marshalls because I would be super irritated if I had paid full price. The first time I tried this, I didn't like it, but decided to give it another try, thinking maybe a hydrating primer and foundation brush would help (I used it with the Milk Blur Stick and Beauty Blender at first). Nope. No matter what I did it looked patchy and cakey and super obvious. My skin is pretty normal, so I'd like to see if it performs better on extremely oily skin. I don't know, it's exactly what you think when you think of a bad mousse foundation. This is one of a handful of foundations I've tried (and I've tried way too many) where I literally gave up and washed it off because it looked so bad. I wanted this to work and the packaging is super chic, but I see why it ended up at Marshalls and TJ Maxx. It's not even worth the discounted price.
This is actually a really great brow product at the drug store. The packaging is super cheap, but that aside, the actual powders are great! I used the more taupe shade until I hit pan. They're pigmented, but not so much that you end up with sharpie brows. I would definitely recommend this this anyone looking for an affordable option.
The most perfect, every day blush! It's a super smooth formula that is also extremely buildable. I'm pretty fair, but I can see this working on much deeper skin tones. It's the perfect sort of mauve tone that just looks like a super natural flush to the cheeks. The only bummer is the price. I think you could find something pretty comparable for cheaper.
