Review for: Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation 34 Beige Medium 0.63 oz more...
Its been over five weeks of daily use - and to my surprise the bottle ( jar— the prettiest jar ever 💚) is not even half empty.
Provides medium to full coverage if you build up and stays all day .
As some of you might know , I work at a hospital with exposure to all kinds to environment... this foundation souffle not only stays put but has never given me a reaction given that my environment has plenty to react with !
LOVE LOVE LOVE... not overly pricey!
Highly recommend to all you olive toned, indian skin toned or medium color girls ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation

Review for: Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation 26 Bisque Medium 0.63 oz more...
I picked this up on a lark after spotting it at TJ Maxx. I’d heard good things about this product for oily skin, and they had a shade that I could pull off, so I grabbed it.

The packaging is nice, though many would consider it unhygienic. It’s a cream in a shallow, wide mouth jar. The cream is very stiff and I figured out quickly that using a blender sponge wouldn’t work for this formulation. So I tried applying it with my fingers over my favorite mattifying primer, Hylamide HA Blur. I used ELF’s Selfie Ready Foundation Brush to spread it around, then set it with a basic translucent powder. I was impressed with the finish and finished the rest of my makeup.

Once I stepped out into the sunlight, I only saw a horror scene. The foundation was clinging hard and fast to the primer where I’d swiped it on with my fingers. My face was a streaky mess. Attempts to blend it out with my fingers just made it pill up and flake off.

A second attempt was made a few days later with a different primer. This time I used Estée Lauder’s Illuminating Primer, and applied with the same ELF brush straight from the jar. This time it applied much easier and more evenly! Once set with a powder, my skin was flawless. I was very impressed. However, as gorgeous as the finish was, it didn’t hold up. It had faded around my nose and cheeks long before the end of the evening. I was so disappointed because I expected so much of the brand.

I don't generally use mousse foundation but just wanted to try this one so recently bought this from TJ Maxx. I am loving it. It is a medium coverage foundation but it's quiet buildable. It gives me a smooth airbrushed finish.

Lots of foundations tend to make me breakout as I have acne-prone & sensitive skin but so far I haven't faced any such problems with this one. It's does hide away my acne marks flawlessly & feels really light on my skin. The smell is also quiet mild which is a good thing as I don't like strongly scented products. Overall a great product.

Review for: Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation 46 Golden Deep 0.63 oz more...
When I first saw this, I didn’t think it was a mousse at all. However, once I applied it, I understood why it was called a mousse - it’s light and soft and feels like it melts right into my skin! I love how it feels. I ended up purchasing this in Golden Deep. I never thought I’d be able to wear a shade with ‘deep’ in its name, but this worked really well with my summer tanned skin. This foundation blends into my skin very effectively. It does have a tendency to cling to dry spots (I have dry to combination skin), but with the use of Josie Maran Argan Oil under it, it looks flawless. I’d say it’s medium coverage on me - it doesn’t hide redness completely if my skin is irritated. However, I like that it lets my natural flush show through slightly, though I still use blush with this product. The only downside to this foundation is that it wears off by the end of the day. I’m not sure if it’s the formula or the oil I’m using that causes it to come off quicker.

Review for: Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation 44 Golden Medium 0.63 oz more...
I just recently picked this up and have attempted to make it work a couple times. Since it’s a mousse foundation I was expecting a much softer formula, this foundation is a lot harder and trying to dip your beauty blender in it doesn’t work. I think tried to use this with a brush and still had a hard time blending it out. Once I thought it was blended out and I got into some good lighting I could tell it was pretty blotchy. I don’t have oily skin and I have heard this is more for people with oily skin so maybe trying to use this on my dry/normal skin it didn’t apply very well. I have actually been using this as a cream bronzer because the shade I have is too dark for winter and I think using it this way is a lot better! It’s not one of my favorite products from Marc Jacobs, but maybe if you have oily skin it would work better.

Review for: Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation 82 Cocoa 0.63 oz more...
Spotted it at Marshall’s and since I couldn’t find an untouched one in my shade I ended up getting this foundation in shade Cocoa for cream contouring. And for that use, it works well for me. I don’t hate it. It’s also going to last me awhile because of its size. And for $12.99 it was a steal! I also lightly apply the contour shade in Mirage Filter on top since it’s a cool tone for some dimension.

As for my sister, who did find one in her shade untouched. She has combo skin, that’s more on the dry side but has an oily t-zone. From what she told me; It didn’t go well for her. She applied it using a beauty blender, And said it was patchy, didn’t blend easily, and grabbed onto and accentuated her dry spots and fine lines, and just looked too heavy.

This foundation is super full coverage but also very thick. I bought this at Tj Maxx and was super excited to try it but soon came to realize how hard it is to apply. I've tried applying it with my fingers, beauty blender, and even a sponge and still don't know which one works the best. If you do purchase it, make sure to wear a pore minimizing primer because since the consistency is so thick it tends to make your pores look huge. The only reason I probably wouldn't purchase again is that it felt really heavy on my face and felt like my makeup was so cakey.

I use this product with a brush and this makes my skin flawless. This is a luxury product and since I have oily skin this does not make me look cakey or breakage on the face like some foundations do. This definitely lasts with an absolute flawless finish even though I don’t like mousse products this is one I definitely am glad I got my hands on. I highly recommend it if you have not. :)

OMG!! I am in love with this foundation. It went on like a dream. It blended out so perfectly on my skin and made my skin look like it was airbrushed. This foundation did not oxidize on my skin either. The foundation smells very mildly like foundations do and looked so smooth. The texture was like sticking your finger in an extra firm marshmallow. This is such a beautiful product. I will be purchasing it again.

Absolutely the best foundation I’ve ever used! I applied around my under eyes with a silisponge and then stipple swiped the rest in with a number 65 from Sephora. And it’s been a full day, usually my foundation dries my face out and my foundation starts to flake. Not this stuff. Still smooth, still supple and non melting! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!
