Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)Able Full Coverage Foundation Concentrate--Swatches of 12 Shades!

Happy September, lovelies!  Last month, I reviewed the Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)Able Full Coverage Foundation Concentrate (HERE) and demonstrated application of the formula HERE.  After receiving a host of requests for additional shade swatches, I am happy to report that I have a total of 12 different shades (there are 22 in all) in the fair-light through medium-dark range!  

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches of 12 shades and a beauty look featuring the foundation (and some new discoveries!) as well as the Bottom Line...

Above: The lineup.
As aforementioned, my comprehensive review of the foundation can be found HERE, but in sum, the Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)Able Full Coverage Foundation Concentrate:
  • Is medium, buildable to full coverage in a few drops
  • As the name implies, is highly concentrated...a little (4 or 5 drops) goes a very long way
  • Blurs pores and instantly covers imperfections; this formula has a natural matte, skin-like finish that still feels light on the skin, even though its highly pigmented
  • Possesses marvelous lasting power (6-7 hours, even in heat and humidity, before I need to touch up)
  • Is unscented and friendly to sensitive skin
  • Can be mixed with lighter formulas (e.g., BB creams, tinted moisturizers and moisturizers in general) to increase coverage
  • All in all, is an excellent option for those seeking natural and lasting full coverage!


Above: The foundation is housed in a frosted glass bottle and features a glass dropper to precisely distribute drops of the formula.
On to the swatches:

Bottom Line: I hope you found the additional shade swatches of the Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)Able Full Coverage Foundation Concentrate to be helpful in your quest for most befitting match.  Although I have quite a collection of foundations at my disposal, I am happy to confirm that this formula is consistently in my regular rotation.  Have YOU tried this foundation?  Thoughts?

Good things ahead, including my closeups of the new By Terry contour powders, Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipsticks and a host of fresh fall releases; my teaching schedule is back in full swing now but, as always, I'm committed to sharing beauty discoveries in earnest frequency!

  1. Lovely post. I've been using the new Marc Jacobs foundation since it's debut. I absolutely adore it. As you said, it really does hold up to the humidity. I will repurchase. Now I'm curious about the byTerry contour powder. Especially as I don't always want shimmer.
    I must add that you look beautiful.

      I am thrilled to hear that you are loving the new MJ foundation and hope that you've been able to take a peek at my By Terry powders post now ; ) There are a few good shimmer-free options!

  3. Yes finally! Thank you for so much for the swatches! I got samples of Golden Beige and Golden Medium. As showed in your swatches, they are indeed similar shades, along with Beige Medium I think. I always find Marc Jacobs shades confusing but this is definitely a good formula. I'll play with my samples to decide a shade, (or two? :P).
    The Charlotte Tilbury Birkin Brown looks so good on you!! I'm looking forward to your reviews on more shades. Hope you are having an amazing start for new semester, Professor!

      My semester is crazy busy but good so far...hope your September will be lovely...XO,

  4. I purchased the Marc Jacobs foundation, but I did not like it. I was very disappointed even though the lightest shade was spot on. It could be that I should have also purchased the primer, because the foundation sank into my pores, and it also seemed very drying even though I prepped with moisturizer. My skin is very dry though, and foundations that work for many people, often look terrible on me.

    1. Hi Anon...thanks for weighing in on this. This foundation is great but I can see it being tricky with drier skin...thank goodness we have such an amazing array of foundations available to suit each need. Have you tried the Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation? It's incredible for drier skin!

  10. How does this Marc Jacobs foundation compare to the Sensai Cream foundation ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Anon,

      It is more liquid than the Sensai and offers more intial coverage (full vs. medium). I would also deem it slightly more matte in finish!

      Hope that helps...xx,

  12. MJ definitely didn't include darker colors in this new foundation line. Sure there are lighter complexions in each ethnic group but he totally omitted (Blacks/Asians/Mid Eastern/Hispanic) women of darker complexions.

    1. Hi Lily,

      Actually, he did! I was only sent 12 shades but there are 22 in all and he has suitable shades on both ends of the spectrum, including a couple of gorgeous rich browns called Cocoa Medium and Cocoa Deep! Take a peek on the Sephora or Marc Jacobs site to see what I mean!
