Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's like a second skin...but definitely better! :D The moment I put this foundation on my skin, I was just blown away! Well, for the purpose I wanted it: light-weight, skin-like foundation with decent coverage that does not cake up, and does not look like I'm wearing make up....and it truly delivered! Once you put it on you'll see that it is just like your skin, but better! Moreover, it also stays beautifully on your skin throughout the day! It won't cake up, won't get just doesn't change! It's also very true-to-color and won't oxidize. The teeeeeny tinyyyy thing I can say about it (which is absolutely nothing serious or that bad) is that if you put it under eyes, it will make the concealer crease a liiiiitle bit..seriously it's nothing too dramatic or anything ...and all foundations of this type (ligh-weight, skin-like) that I've used have this in common (I guess because they don't have the drying formula) Anyways all I was thinking was that: why is this foundation not raved about enough?!! This is just sooo compares to Dior Nude Air Serum,they are both beautiful and skin-like, HOWEVER if you tend to be on the oily side, do go with the Marc Jacobs one. I am soooo happy I found this foundation and I will definitely purchase this again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genius Gel Foundation This is absolutely amazing! It’s lightweight formula still delivers a flawless finish and looks perfect! The very first day I wore it, my hair stylist commented on my perfect skin. I am 53 years old! Of course I told her about my new Marc Jacobs foundation! I think I’m in love!! Thank you, Marc Jacobs Beauty!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My 1st & best gel foundation I ever used I've ordered the coco light of this foundation from sephore..& its way too dark but I love how it looks & feel on my skin. The the fawn deep 66 is sold out so I settle for this shade.. too light & too pink for me bc I have yellow undertone but I can always mix it. The onky reason i gave this a 4 stars bc i feel like the foundation is old..i keep on shaking but its not mixing well. But i have no problem with the one from sephora & I hate returning things.. so it is what it is.. But I lpve the feeling, the look on my skin. Not cakey at thank you M.J

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me! I've finally found a foundation that matches my skin tone almost perfectly and works well with my oily skin. The lightweight consistency is great. I can build up to my desired coverage with thin layers. I've tried this foundation with a couple different primers and they all seem to work pretty well giving me about 4-5 hours of perfection before I have to blot. I've tried putting it on with a beauty sponge, but found I like the coverage of a stippling brush much better. I only wish there was a shade this deep with more yellow and less red undertones and it would be the ultimate best foundation. I also wish I hadn't discovered it so late and I hope that it's not being discontinued.
