If you have been looking for a full coverage foundation that still looks like skin and will last all day then you are going to want to check out the new Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate($55 US/$69 CAD). The foundation comes in a rounded glass bottle with a black plastic cap that feels very luxe.
The formula contains patented golden pigments that are wrapped in lecithin, an ingredient biochemically similar to skin, for a satin matte finish that looks natural. Well as natural as absolutely flawless skin can look! A little goes a long way with this foundation.
About 3-5 drops is about all you need for a full face application. The “dot applicator” is handy as it is easy to control the amount of product, as it is so concentrated, but maybe a little unsanitary. I would have preferred a pump. You can wear this foundation more sheered out for a more natural result or you can go full cover as shown in the below and after below. You can see my skin still has a natural radiance and natural texture yet it covered absolutely everything. It’s so flawless I look like an alien! Now this is not a bad thing. I’m just warning you that without any contour and colour brought into the face, as shown below, it looks creepy how perfect you look. My abundant chest freckles, and the fact my face has so many freckles and sun spots, amplify that effect. I am so in love with this foundation. I never thought I would find a full coverage formula I could love that didn’t look cakey or dry on my skin. The Re(marc)able Foundation feels light on the skin and didn’t migrate into my fine lines or pores through the day. I noticed only very minimal fading which was evident in just a hint of my freckles peeking through which only made it look more fantastic.
Here it is with some contour and bronzer added so I look a little more human again. 😉
The shade selection is impressive. There are 24 available shades and you pale people out there will be delighted to hear that the lightest shade, Ivory Light 10, is actually too light for me. I think Ivory 12 is a better match for me. (EDIT: I was at Sephora and tested out Ivory 12 and it is too dark. I am between the two shades but Ivory Light 10 is actually the better match.) I actually add a bit of the darker shade I have, Beige Taupe 35, to get a better match. I think mixing is a giant hassle, especially with such a pigmented formula, so I may have to invest in Ivory 12 because I like this formula so much.
Shown below are Ivory Light 10 and Beige Taupe 35.
