Marc Jacobs Beauty ‘ReMarcable’ Foundation Review

So for all beauty lovers and those in between, the ‘ReMarcable’ Foundation would have definitely slipped into your feeds or conversations. For those who have never used this foundation, this will definitely be helpful for you to find out if this foundation suits you and you need to know about this amazing product!

So for all those who know me, they know I am in LOVE with Marc Jacobs Beauty products! Packaging, quality and style of the products from this brand are all top-notch in my books. So I definitely needed to try this foundation.

Let’s start with coverage and formula of this foundation product. The coverage of the ReMarcable foundation is definitely one of the highest (if not THE highest) that you will find in the market in terms of products ‘marketed’ as a foundation. With 50% pigment, in this formula, its bound to be perfect for a lover of full-coverage foundation.

Personally, I’ve always preferred a full-coverage foundation since I have pigmentation that I like to conceal. The fact that the pigment percentage in this foundation is so high, means that the texture of this formula is able to be very weightless and thin on the skin. I believe is great since there are some foundations on the market where I’ve tried to build up coverage but have to layer on a tonne just to achieve the same coverage! The only downside to having such a full coverage application is that it is super important to find the perfect shade, otherwise it’ll be quite obvious on the face!

The application of this product is highly unique as there is not pump, but instead a wand with a sphere on the end to ‘dot’ the product onto the face. While this application method is great since I didn’t have to touch any foundation throughout my entire makeup routine, I did notice that after a few uses of my foundation, the product would sometimes collect around the rim of the bottle making it pretty messy (and I’m not typically one for mess).

While applying the product I would definitely also recommend that you work in sections on the face, rather than applying the foundation to the face at once and then moving around to buff the product out. You’ll probably end up having product enough in your first application on a section of your face to actually finish off the rest of your face without having to go for seconds!

I’ve applied this foundation with both, wet and dry beauty blenders, and a buffing brush and have definitely come to the conclusion that the buffing brush is the perfect match for this fool-proof formula! Although you’ll still get a get a great coverage with the beauty blender, I found that with the buffing brush (I used the Marc Jacobs Face III brush) you have a lot more ease in working the product well into the skin and you’ll find the foundation becomes ‘one’ with the skin, being even less detectable, but still providing that flawless finish you’re after!

The wear throughout the day with this foundation is the same as other foundations I have tried with a full-coverage, long-stay formula. I have oily-combination skin type and for me, anything tends to slide off in hot weather, so I would still set this foundation with a translucent powder, and touch-up throughout the day to keep it from sliding.

This foundation definitely comes with a high-end price tag ($79 AUD) but knowing the little amount of product that I’ve needed (4 dots) for a full-face routine, it’s well worth it!

The new exfoliator to change skincare

Everyone in the Beauty Industry knows that Tarte Cosmetics have amazing makeup that is high performance and natural. But with Tarte Cosmetics beginning to introduce skincare into their repertoire, the skincare world is about to change!

One of Tarte’s new skincare products about to hit Sephora in Australia is an handy little exfoliator which fits in the palm of a hand. This little stick is called the ‘Frxxxtion Stick’. Packaged in the cutest little ‘roll-on-deodorant’ style packaging, this exfoliator is so easy and portable, with no mess.

I decided I’d give this a go since I love anything exfoliating and purifying for the skin!

Applying this product was super easy and gentle to the skin, with the charcoal coloured exfoliating gel easily applying all over the face. Dispensing the product was simple with a twist of the base of the stick and easy to hold in the hand while massaging the product into the face.

With most exfoliating masks/gels I like to keep it on the face for around 10 minutes just to create a bit of a purifying mask and added benefits, so after the 10 minutes I simply used my hands to massage the product into the face a little more before washing it off.

img_2671I found that the grain of this particular exfoliator was supe
r fine and didn’t create any redness for my sensitive skin! After washing off this product I found that my skin was definitely a lot smoother just like after exfoliating with most other masks I’ve used. I like the fact this exfoliator is super gentle on the skin but still does a great job at getting rid of the outer layer of skin cells. This product definitely leaves the skin feeling clean and doesn’t strip the skin of it’s hydration!

For the girl on the go, this is definitely a product I’d recommend. Another ting I love about this product is the price! For $36AUD it’s a must-have in any skincare routine.

I know that I’ll be packing this in my suitcase when I travel to Europe later on this year!!

So what are your favourite Exfoliating products and why?

New Brand Review: Le Bebe Coo Bath and Body!

So recently, there’s been a new brand launched which specialises in bath and body products called Le Bebe Coo! For everyone who’s new to this brand, it’s an awesome brands whose entire range is formulated without any nasties (ie. parabens, sulfates and formaldehydes) so it’s so good for anyone who has sensitive skin!

I love the fact this brand is formulated without nasties and its also made in USA, so I reckon thats also something super trusty about it. Packaging aside, I enjoyed most of the products from this range and felt so luxurious while using them!

Keep reading to find out all my thoughts on each of the main products!!

Le Bebe Coo Head-to-Toe body wash

This product is definitely one of my favourite products from the entire range! I love how this body wash smells amazing almost like vanilla, but just subtly, so it’s not super overpowering. I’ve been using this since I received it and I’ve been loving it, as it helps to moisturise my body whilst cleansing! I would have to say, that the bottle size is definitely worth the price $22. But I would have to purchase it every fortnight or so, so I definitely think that they should bring out a larger size just so that we can have peace of mind that we have enough to last us a while!

Le Bebe Coo Nourishing Lotion

Processed with Snapseed.

So this is the part where I tell you, that most days I’m so busy I can’t be bothered to lather lotions all over my body after I’ve cleansed. But whilst giving this range a trial, I’ve been really loving this nourishing lotion!

It’s a really nice lightweight texture, so it absorbs straight into the skin which is what I love! The smell of this is the same vanilla, coconut as the other products in the range. I must say, that this definitely does the job of hydrating my arms and legs after a shower.

 

 

 

 

Le Bebe Coo Colour protectant shampoo (Brunette) 

I found this product really interesting when I first received it because there was a range of different hair colours for different people in terms of ‘colour protection’ so I was definitely keen to try this one. The scent to the shampoo is just like all the other products in the range, and the shampoo feels really nice when you lather it.

The only thing I found is that for my hair, this shampoo did dry it out a little more than usual, so I would recommend this one for anyone who has a normal-oily hair condition as it may help for those hair types. Overall, I felt this product didn’t suit me as much as the others in the range.

Leave in Conditioner/ Detangler

Processed with Snapseed.I love using this Leave in conditioner as a detangler for my hair! So normally my hair can sometimes get quite knotty if I’m super busy and neglect my hair. It’s a super silky formula which is perfect as it helps when I’m styling my hair and it’s super easy to brush your hair out with this stuff! The bottle design is great as its an easy spray bottle which is perfect for spot detangling!

If you’re using this as a leave in conditioner I would suggest applying this product to damp hair so that it can fully absorb into the hair follicle! It works a charm and the next day your hair is actually so soft!

 

 

 

 

I honestly loved trying this brand new range out and definitely recommend it to anyone who loves natural products without all the nasties or someone who has sensitive skin! Also, not to mention, HOW ADORABLE IS THE PACKAGING!!

Let me know what product you’re most excited about from this awesome new range!
