The Marc Jacobs Re(Marcable) Full Cover Foundation Concentrate, slated for official release on Tuesday 7/21/15, is on the cusp of its debut and I am excited to offer you a first look at this otherworldy formula! 

Kindly scroll on for more details, comparison swatches, a closeup of the new Chanel Ilusion D'Ombre in New Moon and images of the foundation and eyeshadow in action as well as the Bottom Line...

I can honestly say, that of the four (five, if you include powder) Marc Jacobs Beauty foundation formulas I've tried over the past two years, this is exceedingly the most impressive!  As one who loves "full bodied" foundation formulas (that is, medium to full coverage), the opacity of a single drop alone was enough to capture my heart.  And so I'll be abundantly direct: this foundation is extraordinarily pigmented! Four dots (forehead, both cheeks and chin) buffed in with a damp Beauty Blender are all that is necessary for beautiful full coverage that simply looks like really good skin.

Coverage, however is certainly not enough if the texture, finish and performance are lacking; I am happy to report that these qualities are also favorable.  The Re(Marc)Able foundation is smooth (but not too silky or "silicon-y") and weightless feeling on the skin.  Once the delightfully un-scented serum-esque formula dries down (in a few seconds), the velvety aftermath results in blurred pores, concealed imperfections and a very natural finish (not too matte or too dewy).  Additionally, in my first trial run, I got 7 hours of comfortable, touch up free wear (in warm humidity, no less) and I didn't even set it with a powder preliminarily.  

In sum, I am wildly fascinated by the Re(Marcable) Full Cover Foundation Concentrate.  I conceed, this love affair is new; consequently, I can't wait to continue experimenting with the formula in different weather contexts...I'll weigh back in soon with my final verdict!

Bottom Line: The Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)Able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate, refreshingly, is exactly what its moniker states; the coverage is exceptional, the texture is weightless, the finish is natural and the lasting power is significant.  I suspect that foundation-philes are going to fall in love with this formula the second they apply their first blissfully opaque drop!

Will YOU be trying the Re(Marc)Able foundation? 

Additionally, Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in New Moon is a neutral lover's must...the delicate, rosy taupe luminosity is flattering on a spectrum of eye colors and the ease of wear and longevity cannot be beat.  

Good things ahead, including more new foundation formula overviews, a hair-centric post and fresh product procurements!

I hope your week is off to a beautiful start...xx,

  1. hi rachel!! the marc jacobs foundation looks very promising! this will be my second summer wearing new moon exclusively. it is indeed everything you wrote about and more. i had a very hard time tracking this shade down last summer ( it premiered, summer collection 2014). i finally found and bought 2. i pre-ordered new moon months ago as it reappeared magically on various websites. in fact, i was told this shade was gone for good. there are some things to know.....caution if you order this by mail....all of mine, including tom ford's cream shadows come all pushed to the side, product on the cap and, some appear almost "shrunken" in the container . make sure the cap is really closed. they can and some tend to almost crumble in tiny pieces after awhile. when chanel comes out with anything named "moon" grab it! new moon is truly a fabulous color! the marc jacobs gloss and lipliner look so pretty. thankyou very much rachel for your fabulous, wonderful reviews!! xo.

  3. I adore the literal foundation rotation and the Make face gloss!
    Have you tried the new Make up forever ultra foundation? I do not do well with MUFE makeup in general. I did not like the HD foundation at all but have heard many good things about this new formulation.
    Happy weekend my darling,

    1. So glad you enjoyed this post, my friend ; ) I am in the midst of testing the MUFE Ultra HD in both the liquid AND stick forms (full swatches and review forthcoming)! So far, I much prefer the new formulation in the liquid to the original...better coverage and lasting power.

      Have a beautiful rest of the week...xx,

  7. Hi Professor !
    You are so fast on this new product! I received an email about this yesterday and was wondering how this foundation wears and... you already posted the review!! you are soooo helpful!!
    I have the mousse foundation from Marc Jacobs, but it tend to sink in my pores around my noise and fine lines on my forehead. It looks nice from a distance but with such a high price tag, I found it annoying that it's not FLAWLESS. I remember you reviewed the mousse foundation too. Was is your trick to make that work for you??
    After reading your review on this new foundation, I will definitely get a sample to try. Colorwise, I used golden medium in the mousse formula, maybe i can also try golden beige? Or can you recommend other color for me to start with??

    Thank you for your review as always!

    1. Hi Gloria,

      Thanks for the kind compliment...I love being able to share new foundation formulas ASAP! I liked the MJ mousse but find that it wears better (at least for me) in cooler weather...humidity is not its friend. This new formula is definitely worth sampling...it has great coverage and lasting power and I think you'll find beige golden a great place to start!

      Do keep me posted...xx,

  8. I love it when a long-wearing foundation comes out! I'm curious how you would say this compares to other serum foundations such as YSL Fusion Ink in terms of longevity and suitability for dry patches?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi MG!

      Yes, isn't it thrilling? I feel like this new MJ foundation is a bit more hydrating than the YSL Fusion Ink (perhaps less alcohol?) and the coverage is full coverage with just a few drops. I also am astounded by the lasting power...all in all, it's a very impressive release!

      I hope that helps...xx and talk soon,

  9. How will this work on oily skin? I live in a very tropical + humid country and I am required to wash my face 3-4 times during the day due to religious calling. Hope you see this and reply, as I didn't find any indication of your skin type in this post. :)

    1. I think it will work well on combination to oily skin (my skin is normal to combination) and it holds up well in humidity in my experience.

      Hope that helps!

  10. Hello! I never used to be so into bases but have started to really get into them recently, I actually have a couple in rotation myself KGD Aqua, rouge bunny rouge milk aquarelle, and Dior nude skin air serum. How does the Marc Jacobs compare to the Dior nude serum? Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Cassie,

      Welcome to the vast world of high-end bases ; ) Your rotation sounds lovely. With regards to your question, I much prefer the MJ to the Dior Nude because the MJ is unscented and the Dior has a very strong fragrance in my experience. I also get better lasting power from the MJ!

      Hope that helps...xx,
