I’ve been on the hunt for a foundation that makes my skin look flawless, provides there but barely there kind of coverage. All while maintaining the appearance of hydrated skin. It may sound like I’ll need three separate products but my search came to an end after trying out the Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Foundation. This review is going up after I have made it through half the bottle, tested it in both hot and cold climates and while my skin has been drier than ever before.
Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Foundation is available in 21 shades, with varying neutral, yellow, peach and red undertones. Packaged in a frosted glass tube with a dropper dispenser. This foundation is a liquid consistency and needs to be shaken prior to each use.
I tried out the shade 36 Beige Golden as it appeared to be the perfect match for me. It had a warm yellow undertone, like my own skin tone but turned out to be one or two shades darker than my complexion. Since the match wasn’t spot on, I was able to make it work by highlighting parts of my face. Letting the foundation act as a very subtle contour. I think because it was slightly darker, my blemishes appeared much more concealed and I was able to skip out on spot concealing and colour correcting all together.
This foundation is oil free and promises a natural matte finish. Regardless of whether you use a sponge or foundation brush for application, blending is a breeze. You’re left with a seamless finish each and every time. My dry patches of skin were not accentuated, even though I didn’t use a face primer beforehand to smooth out the surface.
Less is definitely more with the Re(marc)able Foundation. I use an average of 3-4 drops to achieve a full coverage finish and still feels lightweight on the skin. I didn’t find the need to set the foundation with a powder, as it’s a liquid consistency and dries fairly quickly on the skin compared to cream foundations.
Here is a swatch in direct sun light:
It does not melt in warmer temperatures, likely due to the fact that again, it is oil free. I really can’t comment whether the foundation darkens throughout the day because I didn’t start with an exact match to begin with.
However, I can genuinely say that this foundation delivers on its promises. I’ll definitely be giving the shade Beige 33 a go for a better match!
Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Foundation retails for $64 CDN and is available at Sephora online and in store.
