Here's a quickie! Don't want to spend too much time on this review haha.
This time I used Dior as my base. So keep in mind the finish is probably more dewy than if the foundation is used alone.
Bare face with Dior sunscreen
The real reason why I wanted to go to the mall today... To pick up a sample of the Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate. This foundation is really thick 😳 top to bottom: 27 Bisque Neutral, 32 Beige Light, and 33 Beige. I ended up taking home shade 27. By the way guys, the applicator is a "dotter", NOT a dropper!!! (I'm very meh about that 😑). There were actually quite a number of other things I had in mind checking out: 1. MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencils in Fearless and Go For Girlie, but I was underwhelmed by both. I do like the color "Kittenish" though 😏 (it's a mauve color) (formula is very glossy/buttery/moisturizing feeling) 2. diptyque perfume in Olene... but I noticed whenever a perfume contains magnolia it gives me a headache 😖 3. Burberry eye shadows in Pale Barley, Almond, Shell, Nude. So underwhelmed 😂😂😂 and the blush in Misty... it's pretty but again... underwhelmed 😆 (the formula of eye shadows is impeccable but the shades aren't anything special... Maybe I have to actually try them on my eyes to tell the difference) 4. Anastasia Artist Palette... Underwhelmed ROFL!!! 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈I do have a little haul to share though but I'll wait till tomorrow when I have better lighting 😄 hope you all had a good Saturday night 😊 night~ 🌚 #sephora #foundation #swatch #marcjacobs #marcjacobsbeauty #remarcable #makeup #beautyblogger #bblogger #blogger #chatty
Sorry-- didn't know the Re(marc)able foundation oxidizes -_- was gonna try it this morning but found that this foundation had oxidized at least 3 or 4 shades... It's kind of ridiculous -.- it's weird I looked up reviews and nobody mentioned anything about oxidation???????? Not sure what happened but got 22 and 26 to try; shall find out which one works better 😅 (the shade shown here is 27... After oxidation) #marcjacobs #marcjacobsbeauty #remarcable #foundation #beautyblogger #bblogger #blogger #makeup
As mentioned on Instagram, I think this foundation oxidizes??? You can see in the first Instagram photo, shade 27 doesn't look too dark when swatched on the back of my hand, but the next day I found the foundation to be several shades darker. Please see the pictures below.
Left to right: #22, #26, #and 27
Thought to show you guys what the shades look like against a white background. Clearly #27 is too dark for me...
This picture is closest to real life.
Top is shade #22 Bisque Light 22 (fair w/ pink undertones)
Bottom is #26 Bisque Medium (fair w/ neutral undertones)
Left to right: #22, 26, 27
LOL with white background offsetting the color scheme again.
So I actually didn't read the shade description on Sephora when I tried the shades out. I used shade 22 on this day because I was worried the foundation might oxidize even further so I thought I would start out with the lighter shade. I didn't even check shade 26 before I decided which one to put on my face cuz I figured I could try 26 the next day, so I just grabbed 22. Turns out 22 and 26 are the same shades just with different undertones.
Like explained, I used shade #22 here, but if you're NC20-25, definitely go for #26 if you like more of a neutral/yellow undertone.
It does look slightly pink on me but not too bad.
I used a wet BeautyBlender. Definitely heavy coverage as marketed. Finish is semi-matte with some glow. Although the foundation did apply a bit more on the powdery side than I would've liked.
HAHAHA I missed a spot on the side of my nose... was in a hurry x'D
About 7 hours later
Lol may I say... the WORST settling foundation I've used this year. Actually I noticed it started settling into the pores around my nose 2-3 hours into wearing the foundation. And the whole time I was in an air-conditioned room -_- (had to wear a jacket cuz it was so cold) absolutely no excuses for this foundation.
Yes, it was as bad as it looks.
So this is more of a first impression review, but pffffft I don't need to try this foundation out for the second time to know that it doesn't work for me. The reason why I didn't try to do the review with shade #26... just cannot be bothered. Tossed the samples out literally right after I photographed them.
Congratulations Marc Jacobs, you've won the crown for the worst foundation thus far this year LOL. Well at least not for girls with combination/oily skin. And thanks for emphasizing my pores. It fared alright on the rest of my face (but so do all my other foundations). All that trouble I went through to get the right match -_-
I think last year (or was it the year before??) the worst foundation I used was Kett Fixx Cream foundation. Reviewed here.
Also reviewed the other Marc Jacobs foundation Genius Gel here (PS: upon skimming through this review... I noticed both lines of foundations have corresponding shades!)
Only have tested out Marc Jacobs makeup here and there, mostly when I was at the store. So far... I found my interest for the brand plummeting. Hahaha.
Hope some of you found this review helpful!
