Marc Jacobs 'Remarcable' Foundation Review

I am still head over heels in love with this Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation and I cannot believe that I am only just getting around to writing my posts for you guys. I bought this foundation because my favourite YouTuber, Casey Holmes used this in a video and I could not deny that it looked absolutely incredible on her skin. The reason why I wanted to try this is because I have areas what I like to cover, and I am pretty oily, just like Casey, so usually the products that she recommends tend to work for me. After seeing this foundation in her video, I searched high and low for it to try and get it here in the UK, in the end I bought it through the Harrods website and I have been in love with it every since.

I did want to buy this foundation from Sephora, but when I went to buy it as my haul from a couple of months back, it was constantly out of stock on their website and I just couldn’t bring myself to wait. It was actually really easy to order from Harrods, but the shipping prices were extortionate. I think I paid £16 for next day delivery on this foundation, which is an absolute killer, but I really wanted to get my hands on it and try it out for myself. But, I will admit that when the parcel was finally delivered, it was the most stunning package that I have ever received, and it has definitely tempted me in to ordering from them again in the future.

Up first, I want to talk about the packaging of this Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation. To me, when I am paying for a high-end makeup item, I want the packaging to reflect the price that I am paying, and I feel like this is just perfect. I love the frosted glass bottle and the smooth plastic top that you just pull right off. I also enjoy that it has a wand that you dot the foundation onto your foundation with. Granted, I would prefer a pump, but this really doesn’t bother me and I actually quite like it because you have control over the amount of foundation that you are going in with. I will say that after a couple of uses, it can get pretty messy underneath the cap, but that doesn’t really bother me.

When I first started to try it out, I would dot small amounts evenly onto the face and then grab my Morphe M439 brush and blend it all out. The first thing that I noticed is the consistency of the foundation. This is an incredibly smooth foundation and when I was buffing it out, it actually felt pretty oily, but I think that was just because it was such a creamy product, that was so easy to work with. I expected this to be pretty hard to buff with it being a matte foundation and suitable for oily skin, but it really is such a beautiful consistency.

The other thing that I feel like I have to mention is that the coverage of this Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation is like nothing that I have ever used before. The smallest amount of this foundation really does go the longest way. I can dot the tiniest amount of this onto my cheek and it will do half of my face. I have never tried a foundation that is quite as pigmented as this foundation is and with such a workable and stunning texture. For a full-face application, I only need three tiny drops of this, which is perfect compared to the 3/4 pumps of foundation that I usually use.

I will say that when I first bought this foundation, I was a little put off by the fact that you only get 22ml of product. In a normal liquid foundation, you normally get 30ml, so it is a fair amount less. But, now that I have this foundation and I have been using it day in and day out, I understand why there is less product and that is because it has such a high level of pigmentation. I have been using this Marc Jacobs foundation a lot recently and I feel like I have hardly used any product. I can see this lasting for such a long time and I know that it is going to be my favourite for a very long time.

Plus, the lasting power of this foundation is out of this world. I can put this foundation on first thing in a morning and 8 hours later when I am back from work, it still looks perfect. I don’t get any excess oils with this product and it seems to work well with any other products that I throw at it. Not only have I been using this foundation day in and day out, I have been using it when I go out and I want my makeup to look a little more glam, and it looks perfect and it can last all night long without a struggle.

There really is nothing else that I can say about this Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation that I haven’t already said to you guys. The coverage is stunning, it lasts like a dream and it looks beautiful on the skin. The shade that I have is perfect for my skin and I love reaching for it. I know that this is going to be my go to for a very long time and it is going to take something out of this world to knock this off the top spot. I will leave a link to this foundation down below in case you want to check it out for yourself.
