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!

For the look that follows, I employed the use of the following products:
- Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)Able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate in Beige Golden...buffed on with a damp Beauty Blender, this shade is the perfect match for my current NC 25-27 summertime skin. I will likely embrace the slightly lighter, more neutral Beige when my skin gets a touch lighter.
- *Hourglass Ambient Bronzer in Luminous Bronze (reviewed HERE)...along the hollows of the cheek bones and perimeter of the face.
- Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal (reviewed HERE)...on upper cheekbones and down the bridge of the nose.
- *MAKE Beauty Face Gloss (reviewed HERE)...tapped along upper cheekbones for extra dewiness.
- Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in #97 New Moon...this shade is brand new for Fall 2015 and, I might add, it is stunning. This rosy taupe is high on complex shimmer and absolutely beautiful as a single wash of color. The sales associate at the Chanel counter told me she expects it to sell out quickly so get it while you can!
- Marc Jacobs Hi-Liner in Blacquer (reviewed HERE)...along my lower waterline, this formula is budge proof.
- By Terry Eyebrow Mascara #4 Dark Brown (reviewed HERE)...to groom and polish my brows.
- *Guerlain Maxilash So Volume (reviewed HERE)...two coats for lush lashes.
- Marc Jacobs lipliner in Honeybun (reviewed HERE)...this creamy pinky peach shade works well as a base for a variety of light lip colors.
- Marc Jacobs Enamored Lipgloss in Pink Steam...for an ultra shiny, lavender lip.

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,
