For the past year, I've been wanting to try the Marc Jacobs Genius Gel - Supercharged Foundation from Marc Jacobs Beauty. I FINALLY went out to purchase it last week. While I was out shopping, I decided that I would start a new series on my blog. "BUY or BYE": a series where I give my honest opinion about beauty products that I've tested. This is not guaranteed to be a weekly thing, but it will be on products that I'd like to share with you all. :)


The description states that this foundation is a buildable breakthrough gel that "features best-in-class gel performance with first-to-market buoyancy gel technology". It also states that it is natural-to-full foundation, anti-aging, and hydrating with coconut water extracts.

*There are 16 shades*

Packaging: I love that this bottle has a curved shape. The big plus is that it comes with a pump!
Lightweight: I'm assuming when stated in the description that it's "natural-to-full" they meant that it ranges from natural to the touch and, obviously, to full coverage. I've been wearing this foundation for this past week, and it literally feels like I'm not wearing anything. Love!
Color Match: I purchased the foundation in 84 Cocoa Medium and it matches me PERFECTLY! Now, this may be a different experience for others, but this color is my perfect match, which makes me extremely happy.

Only 2-3 shades for deep/dark skin complexions. 

Final Thoughts
I really love this foundation. I haven't noticed a huge difference with my skin; not really sure if it's hydrating or not. Maybe it is, because my skin doesn't feel dry at the end of the day; I don't know. I will have to wear it a little longer to really see how my skin reacts. All in all, at the price of $48, this will probably be a new staple of mine.

What are some of your favorite foundations?

Often times, we are told to drink more water, which is true. We should drink more water. The problem is most of us are unaware of how much we should consume. I've personally been told half of your body weight or a gallon, or more, a day. That's a bit much, especially if you aren't on some new workout regimen, or in a climate, that requires you to consume a lot more. Honestly, the amount of water you need is dependent upon so many things, such as your age, body size, activity, and more. However, eight 8oz (half a gallon) glasses a day is just enough to prevent dehydration. Today, I've listed a few benefits that will help to encourage your daily water consumption.
