If there’s anything I love more than food and sleep, it’s makeup but you probably already knew that. What you don’t know is that I have an obsession with trying out new foundation. I feel I need to try each and every single foundation that exists! So I decided to start a Foundation Friday series – each Friday, I’ll feature a foundation (old or new) that I’ve been trialling. I’ll give my (honest) opinion and pros and cons on everything you should look for when buying a new foundation. I hope you enjoy the series because I will definitely enjoy writing it! First up is the much acclaimed Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation.
Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Promises:
- Lasts up to 24 hours
- Flawless and full coverage
- Oil free base
- Completely covers pores, blemishes and other imperfections with the thinnest possible layer
- Blends effortlessly
Packaging & Price
So let’s jump right into it guys! I purchased the Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation from Sephora Australia for $79 in the shade 52 Honey Light – I used Sephora’s ‘Find Your Shade’ that allowed me to choose a foundation colour from another brand that I already own in order to match with Honey Light. The shade works for me however was probably a touch too warm – nothing a little bit of concealer can’t fix though right? $79 is quite steep for a foundation since I love L’oreal’s $15 Infallible foundation. However when I used it, the price point made sense (we’ll get into that later).
The packaging is in a nice, luxurious frosted glass bottle with the Marc Jacobs black round lid. Not so sure what happened to my particular bottle though, because when I opened it, there was no pump! Instead, it was a round applicator that looks like a dropper. However the dropper didn’t have the squeezey part like Becca Aqua Luminous? A little confused by this. So I was extremely disappointed with the packaging.
One of the things that this foundation claims to do is provide high coverage with minimal amount. When I try out a new foundation or beauty product, I always try to use as directed. So I dotted the foundation onto my skin, the forehead, cheeks and chin. Normally, this wouldn’t be near enough to provide a full coverage base BUT it freaking did. Those 4 dots I applied to my face blended so seamlessly with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush and really covered every single thing on my face. The foundation applied easily and effortlessly with both a beauty sponge and buffing brush.
The foundation sat well with a primer as well as moisturiser – the gel-light formula didn’t sit on top of the skin or create any uneven skin patches. I feel the only thing you would need is a setting powder to prevent oiliness. Re(marc)able Full Cover foundation doesn’t cake up over time nor does it crease. It is such a light weight foundation that really did what it claims to do and I couldn’t be more impressed.
So this foundation claims to last for up to 24 hours – I’ve never worn foundation for that long so that 24 hours doesn’t really apply to me at all. The longest amount would probably 8-12 hours and it definitely lasted. I would apply the foundation at about 6.30am until about 7.30-8pm and the foundation was still in tact. If anything, the foundation would give me a little bit of oil at the end of a warmer day so definitely need to remember to powder on hot days.
This foundation has landed in my top 3 already which means it’s definitely a great foundation for me. My love for the formula really makes up for my hate for the packaging. The price point is high however well worth it as I feel it would last longer than your normal medium coverage foundation. If you’re ever in Sephora, ask for a sample and try it out – I hope you enjoyed the first Foundation Friday 🙂
