I ecstatically bring to you my thoughts on the Marc Jacobs Shameless Foundation. When I first saw this foundation in the ‘Recommended for You’ section of Sephora’s website, I was immediately intrigued. Maybe because of its non-traditional foundation shape.
The range consists of 29 shades, that does a good job of covering fair to deep complexions. Although the tan to deep section could definitely use some more additions!
I tried out the shades Y340 & Y360. Both have yellow undertones.
Marc Beauty’s Shameless Foundation is said to be a hydrating, medium coverage foundation. It contains SPF 25. The official description states that it has an oil free formula and the product is self setting. With promises of 24 hour wear. I was stoked to put it to the test for at least 14 hours that is.
Beginning with the packaging, it’s shaped almost like a pebble. Such a design is new for Marc Beauty products, as they are known for their luxe packaging.
Don’t get me wrong, the plastic packaging still holds the standard amount of product and is AMAZING to travel with. Plus there’s no room for shattering.
The medium coverage provides a fresh, glow-y finish. Perfect for everyday wear. It blends effortlessly with whatever tool you choose to use. I prefer using a flat top semi-dense kabuki brush.
Why I personally like the Shameless Foundation is that, although I don’t get 100% coverage for my blemishes. The dewy formula mixes incredibly with my dry and textured skin. In my opinion, acne and matte foundations just don’t go together. As they just further enhance the imperfections by clinging to bumps, uneven and flaking skin.
If you’re looking for a one step, full coverage foundation, then this probably isn’t for you. Although you can build up the coverage, it still remains on the sheer, luminous end.
You definitely can’t leave the Shameless Foundation as is, without setting it. As it’s guaranteed to crease and gather. After it is set, it will continue to look better as the hours go by!
