I heard the rumors and they were true. This is a goooood foundation. Something (besides many of you!) made me want to try this right away so I headed to my local Sephora to check it out. They were out of stock in my shade #84 so I had to go to another Sephora to get it. I didn’t even want to do the sample thing. I wanted the bottle baby!
Application is easy. I tried this every which way. With all kinds of foundation brushes, a beauty blender, and my fingers. It looks the same regardless which in itself is kind of amazing. The texture of the foundation is why it works so well in my opinion. It floats onto your skin and is super forgiving. It looks so natural, there is a seamless blend between my face and neck which is essential unless you want to look crazy when your out in public. When I look at my bottle I don’t think #84 looks like a good fit for me but once applied it blends in like it was made for me. The glass bottle worries me a little bit but I’m so glad that this foundation has a pump.
From Sephora’s website:
What it is:
A breakthrough gel foundation that’s antiaging, long-wearing, and awakens your skin to its ideal radiance and clarity.
What it does:
Erase the past, perfect the present, and protect the future. Formulated with lifestyle ingredients and Buoyancy Gel™ technology, Genius Gel Super-Charged Foundation creates a weightless, natural veil that never settles into fine lines. An infusion of Soft Focus Powder reflects light to minimize imperfections, while revitalizing multi-vitamins provide supreme hydration for even application and luxurious wear.
What else you need to know:
This versatile formula builds easily from natural to full coverage, providing supreme hydration for a radiant finish.
Don’t do what I did. Get a sample of this foundation (a healthy one!) and try it out and make darn sure its a good fit for you. At $50 this is not a foundation that should sit on your vanity. It’s a 1 oz. bottle and as much as I love it I know I’ll be buying another bottle before I know it. I love this stuff. I figure I’ll try to switch off between this and Smashbox Liquid Halo Foundation. Those are my two favorites at the moment when it comes to high end foundation. I wear both of them quite a bit in my YouTube videos. They both look so beautiful on the skin and natural.
