Kathy Bolton says:

Great start to a great new series! I’m loving it!

Hi Marnie. I’ve been looking for my holy grail foundation and have come up empty for years. I too pretty much grew up with basically next to nothing so even though I can afford better now, it’s hard to pull the trigger on super high-end foundations that might be a fail. I did recently try the Tom Ford waterproof foundation and it’s ok but not perfect. I’ve been wondering about the La Mer foundation.

Nicole Pletan says:

This was a great idea! Thanks for doing it. I’d like you to try Giorgio Armani’s luminous silk foundation. I’ve heard good things about it. I have the same type of skin as you so I’m still trying to find a great foundation, I’ve tried LaMer’s foundation and wasn’t 100% impressed

C Van Berg says:

Kevin Aucoin. It’s one I haven’t tried. At 60, I tend to steer away from high end…I’ve always found them not worth the money, and I’ve tried them all. Less expensive brands usually have more color selection, better research depts, thus non-irritating products (ie…Estee Lauder). My 2cents 🙂 Thanks for your review!

Susan Wright - April Showers says:

LOL   Nope, no buggers!  You’re so cute. You are my exact match in foundation usually, so I just try what you have.  Until next time….Susan

moon0halo says:

How about the By Terry Sheer Expert Fluid Foundation ($66) or the By Terry Terrybly Densiless Serum Foundation ($116!)?

Tracie McBeth says:

I’ve been waiting for this series, awesome! Thanks for taking one for the team! I will keep my eye out for products I want you to review.

SanFreeman1 says:

I’m a foundation junkie with aging, combination skin. I have the Chantecaiile Future Skin foundation and agree with you that it’s nice, but does not give enough coverage for the price. Since you mentioned the Koh Gen Doh and it’s relative unavailability, I ordered it online and was excited because I had heard rave reviews. This was another foundation that was disappointing in that it didn’t live up to my expectations. It’s okay, but nothing special. (Perhaps we’re all looking for something that does not yet exist.) I prefer a foundation with a satin finish and the one I keep going back to is the Cle de Peau Radiant Fluid foundation. It’s a medium buildable coverage. I love it as much as my By Terry foundations and definitely more than the Guerlain Lingerie, YSL, Hourglass, Koh Gen Doh or Chanel foundations. I set it with Rouge Bunny Rouge setting powder which is also a holy grail product for me. This is probably tmi, but thought I’d share my experiences. Love your channel!

Amy K says:

I hope you do the La Mer foundation.  People rave about that one as well.  I loved this review bc I do not think it provides enough coverage, for one application (I don’t like doing double layers bc I think it loos cakey in places.).  And for $78,, it seriously needs to wow me!!

Angie Stefanec says:

What a beautiful lip color on you! Great start on this series, Marnie 🙂

Alina Gomez says:

Tom Ford bronzer

Terrie Garin says:

Appreciate your honest review Marnie! Love all your videos!

Robin T says:

Enjoyed the video, Marnie. I’m looking forward to the series. Thanks, Robin

Karen's Essentials says:

Marine, thanks for your honest review it helps a lot. I wouldn’t try this foundation because of the shade range. I love the idea of this series. Thanks for keeping us informed! Your hair is gorgeous by the way ❤️

Maura Noonan says:

Are you able to return these items if they are not to your liking?

Diane Milligan says:

Thank you so much for your honest and thorough review. I do like a light coverage so my skin comes through, but goodness, if you used a fourth of that tiny jar in only ten wearings, that is less than six weeks of application for, yikes, $78!

Alison Vanzant says:

Tom Ford blush, TF quads, TF traceless perfecting foundation, charlotte tilbury shadow palette, by terry foundations and concealer, cle de peau foundations (I already know the concealer is great), la mer foundation (soft fluid) and stick concealer. I’d be interested mostly in foundations and concealers, with this series.

Jan Stewart says:

You look amazing today! You are such a pleasure to watch. I love your reviews, you are so honest about the products you use. Where I live there are no upscale department stores. I try to watch videos with women with my skin type. You are Johnny on the spot! Have a blessed week.

Deborah Braam says:

Great review!

R& R says:

Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into this review! Would you consider trying the By Terry Cellularose Brightening CC Serum? I see some use it under foundation and others as a base for a “no makeup” day. Is it worth the price?

Mary Mary says:

Thank you for your honesty!

Angela Rudich says:

I’m also 44, with dry skin and slightly darker complexion….but I do not wear foundation (yet). I haven’t mustered the courage since I would not even know how to look for one?? I do wear (almost)I everything else you have recommended! Still love all your videos, so informative. Maybe after a few foundation reviews I will go and buy a few to test. I a appreciate your reviews!! :):)

Kelly Kaczar says:

Love your videos!  A wish:  are you able to review a few products in the ‘take-one-for-the-team’ series?  If the single product you are reviewing isn’t one on the radar to the viewer, it will be tempting to skip it.  But if there are a few…

Susie Roo says:

Hey your almost at 90K!! That foundation is really sheer.

Firestone Filly says:

Thx for this review, I had asked you about this foundation a few wks ago. In your notes you say that you’re wearing Just Skin which is their tinted moisturizer. I had the company send me samples of both FS & JS.
There is actually much more coverage from the JS (which is what the co. told me).
I ended up purchasing the Hour Glass Vanishing Foundation Stick & I LOVE it! Huge learning curve using it.
I think you’d like it. I also have dry/dehydrated 50yr old skin.

Tanya Wood says:

Thank you for this review! I have been wanting to try this one but have several other high end foundations to use up first. This is coming off my list for sure! By the description it is not for me!! I have extremely fair and dry skin and finding a shade online is a nightmare!! Thank you for your hard work I really enjoy your videos….Try the Chanel Sublimage I have it and love it, it has better coverage. The Lamer Soft Fluid is another one that has pretty good coverage!

Sandra O says:

Agree with you 100% I had this a few years ago (I was problably late 20’s then) and no sun spots and I never liked it! Hardly covered and didn’t love the finish. Not worth it and would never repurchase

Maria Montaquila says:

Marnie, have you tried the Giorgio Armani bb cream for $200.00. Just curious. Love all your videos! Maria

Mandy P. says:

I just want to say that I am a 35 year old Mommy of two little boys and I sooooo appreciate your candor and honesty around the worth and cost of these items and how you realize what is truly too much money to spend on something etc…. love that you included your opinion of “return on investment” for those of us who have been tempted to spend but want to wait for the right buy! Thank you!

Dianne D Ballard says:

Thank you for trying it. I did not like the way it is packaged. I always prefer a pump. This seems to be germ city!

Robyn A says:

I tried this foundation a while back and came to similar conclusions: if you are normal to oily, if you have really great skin that doesn’t need any real coverage, if you have money to burn…knock yourself out. For a really dry skin that is prone to redness, this is not a winner, ime.

lovelettersandlace says:

I can’t believe they advertised this as med to full coverage! Love your makeup in this video, you look great!
