Product Review: Marc Jacobs Shameless Youthful-Look 24 Hour SPF 25 Foundation

The good people at Influenster sent ya girl some makeup, y'all and I'm #SoShameless about it! This is my third VoxBox so far and I was super geeked to receive it complimentary from the company (also for a #contest). Let me add that this isn't just a sample, this is the official and actual size of the makeup! Marc Jacobs Beauty's Shameless Foundation just released this year back in February when I received the box. Some of the promises the foundation gives includes it lasting for 24 hours, being oil free, contains SPF protecting ingredients, and has a self-setting finish.

Shameless also has 29 different shades ranging from the lightest beige to the darkest brown which is a plus in this day and age of non inclusive beauty brands.

I'm obviously getting much better at identifying my shade since the Y740 color I picked out was perfect. I was a bit nervous since I've noticed how some makeup companies seem to make shades for darker skin tones with such red and orange undertones. I have an olive/neutral undertone and the Y740 is described as "tan with caramel undertones" which appeared fitting for me.

The foundation comes in a rounded square shaped tube which is 1.08 oz as I mentioned before. Although it seems like the foundation tube is pretty small, a little but goes a long way. When I first received the foundation, I swatched it and it came out pretty decent, a bit dark since I used a lot.

So let's get into more of the details!

Description: "Have it all with Shameless Youthful-Look 24H Foundation. Inspired by Marc’s very own shameless attitude—and his tattoo—this innovative foundation lets your best self show all day long. It’s clinically tested for 24-hours of long-wear, and contains a first-to-market technology that encapsulates the SPF in pigment. This innovation makes the SPF visibly undetectable, so there’s no flashback in photos and no ashy, grey undertones in the formula."

  • Matches my skin tone
  • Has a natural, matte finish
  • Can be built for full coverage
  • Great packaging
  • Blends well
  • Cruelty free (source)
  • Vegan (source
  • Has a SPF 25 which is perfect for summertime! 

  • Possibly creates creases

A little bit definitely goes a long way! I got a bit too carried away with building with the foundation, but it came out great! I was really impressed with this from the color to the overall look. My only con would be that there were slight creases around my mouth, but perhaps that's due to adding too much. I absolutely love that there's a natural matte finish which is the look I often prefer. I saw it mentioned that makeup-istas don't have to wear setting powder/spray with this, but I still used it with both (products mentioned below). The real challenge will to see how effective it is in the summer when the sun is beaming on my pretty face. I have combination (and acne prone) skin, but sometimes I can get oily in the cheek area. Setting powder really does help a lot, but I'll share an update on how it works without setting it. Nonetheless, I'm shamelessly here for Shameless!

  1. Always here for inclusive brands! You can never have too many shades! Great review!

  2. I have seen many good reviews about this foundation. I am really wondering to get one, but there is no store in U.K from where I can check my shade and purchase one. Moreover, I am very new in makeup line, recently just done with my makeup lesson by Lina, who trains makeup classes for brginners London . Can you please suggest me a perfect match for NC42?

    1. Hey Ena! I'm not 100% sure what your shade would be, but you can find your shade at the shade finder on the Marc Jacobs website:


  3. Looking good! I am not a makeup person but this looks good I will say the packaging would draw me in and the fact that it's vegan.

  4. I'm way behind because I didn't know Marc Jacobs made make-up. Your skin looks flawless. Love your eyebrows too.

  5. Looks like a perfect match! I have never tried it but I just may. Thanks!

  6. I’m not much of a makeup girl but if I wear anything it has to have spf. Thank you for the review.

  7. Thats great that yet another foundation brand has followed of the footsteps of Rihanna and make more inclusive lines. Just beautiful I hope more and more beauty brand continue to understand we truly come in more shades!

  8. I have never tried Marc Jacobs beauty but I love all the shades and you look fabulous.

  9. I didn't know Marc Jacobs sold makeup. I like the fact that they have shades for all skin tones. I don't wear make up often but every once in a while I like to beat my face.

  10. Oh man, I’m so jelly about this Influenster perk! You look flawless! *logs into account* ��

  11. I haven't worn makeup since I got pregnant because my skin was all over the place. So I just threw out all of my foundation and I'm looking for something new for my everyday make up since I'll be returning to work soon. Might have to check this one out!

  12. This product looks awesome! I love the look and the packaging. It looks great on you. I would love to give it a try someday.

  13. This review came right on time because I'm in search of a new foundation line to try. I'm so happy they have several colors in the darker spectrum. Will have to stop by their counter and get a sample.
