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 productΒ 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!

3 star products from Marc Jacobs Beauty

For anyone who’s unfamiliar with the Marc Jacobs, (I highly doubt there’s many of you) he’s a fashion designer, has an incredible line of fragrances and also does amazing beauty products!

Those who’d like to find some new favourites or even just beginning their journey with Marc Jacobs beauty, here’s the top 3 buys from his endlessly sleek collection of beauty products.

Le Marc Lip Creme Lipsticks

With an incredible non-drying formula, this lipstick is a must have in any makeup lover’s bag! There’s so many shades to choose from so everyone will be happy with their perfect shade and undertone. These lippies last all day, with minimal touch up and because they’re such low maintenance, they’re perfect for on-the-go application. With a magnetic closure cap, you’ll be happy to open your bag and not be surprised by an unpleasant lipstick open inside! My favourite shade would definitely have to be ‘Infamous’ number 228.

#Instamarc Might filtering Contour Powder

Now if you’re a fan of contouring and sculpting the face, but hate the fact that those usual contouring palettes have so many confusing shades, you’ll love this little beauty. With only 2 shades, one for highlighting and one for contouring, you’ll get no wastage of shades that you won’t use, and the powders are in such a slim and low profile compact that it’ll fit in even the fullest makeup drawers. This product comes in 3 different levels of tones, but my favourite for anyone who has a warm, light-medium skin-tone is the number ’40’, it’s got the perfect banana toned highlight and a natural cool-tones contour shade. Another winner about this palette is that it’s got a super large mirror to do an entire makeup routine and see your entire face for all the details!

Fineliner Ultra Skinny Gel Eye Crayon

Who loves wearing eyeliner but hates when it ends up on the bottom of your eye almost making you look like you haven’t slept in 10 years!? This handy little liner will stay on all night through sweaty dancefloors, or just through a stressful summer’s day at work! The fine-line point on this gel cream eyeliner is super helpful to get a precise wing or line on the lids, or even the waterline. This formula allows you to achieve a smudged look if you smudge within 5 seconds of applying and once the 5 seconds is over, you’re set for the day (or night!). The packaging element is awesome as it’s a retractable pen and you won’t be caught short without a sharpener.

Let jump straight in starting with a Roaring Red Lippie!

1. Burberry Kisses Lipstick (Shade: 109 Military Red)

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 10.10.38 AM

When I received this lipstick I never really thought this shade and lipstick would turn out to be one of my favourites. To be honest I was just in love with the packaging first (ofcourse). But once I started wearing this, it turned out to be my absolute go-to classic Red Lipstick! The Formula is not drying on my lips, gives a nice shine and super pigmented as well! This lipstick give me great wear time, and knowing me I hardly ever touch up my lipstick so this is great! Literally every single time I wear this shade I get atleast one compliment from someone on the shade. It’s definitely a WINNER! There’s no denying I will be repurchasing this once I use my current one.

2. Nars Audacious Lipstick (Shade: Anita)Β

In Terms of everyday shades that I like to wear, This lipstick is the perfect mauve nude for me! I tend to look better with mauve shades as nudes rather than pink shades as the pinks tend to wash me out. This lipstick lasts such a long time on my lips as well, but gives more of a matte finish on the lips. Once again it’s one of my favourite lipsticks because I hardly have to touch up throughout the day! So it’s perfect for anyone who’s busy and on the go.

 

 

3. Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick (Shade: 228 Infamous)

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 7.54.02 PM

This is another lipstick that gets compliments every single time I wear it. I love the wearability of the Marc Jacobs lipstick formulations as they last so long without me having to touch up (you can tell by now I’m lazy when it comes to reapplication). The shade infamous tends to look good against my skin tone as it’s a mauve-pink undertone, quite similar to Anita by Nars. The pigments in this lipstick are great and this lipstick gives me a semi-matte finish, but not as matte as the Nars Audacious range!

 

4. Dior Addict Lipstick (Shade: 976 ‘Be Dior’)

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 8.02.19 PM

This lipstick has such a beautiful Shine and once again I didn’t think that it would become such a favourite! It’s such a comfortable lipstick and the colour is a ruby red shade that Jennifer Lawrence actually wore in the Dior Campaign for the Lip Addict Lipsticks. The one thing I might add which makes it a little bit short of the others is the fact that because it’s such a nourishing shiny lipstick, it comes off quite easily with eating and drinking. Apart from that, still a really great and popular lipstick!

 

 

5. Tarte Lippie Lingerie Matte Tint (Shade: Envy)

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 8.32.34 PM

Last but not least, the Tarte Lippie Lingerie in Envy is definitely one that I get asked about quite often. considering the comments I get whenever I wear this one I assume its a great looking mauve shade too! The formula of these matte tints are beautiful and so comfortable on the lips. The product lasts a long time on the lips and thats enough to make me love it! It’s also a great everyday shade for anyone with a warm complexion who loves a warm undertone on their lips.
