Review: Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate

Happy Easter! Today I'm reviewing the Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate, which I feel is an extremely underrated foundation. I have been using this foundation for the past 4-6 weeks, initially starting with samples from Sephora before splurging $79.

It did take a while for me to finally take the plunge and purchase this foundation because I was torn between two shades (28 Bisque Taupe and 29 Bisque Golden). For reference, I'm about a NC25-30. Both 28 and 29 are extremely close shades. However, 28 leaned a bit more pink and 29 was a smidgen darker. With my summer tan, 29 was perfect. However, I wanted a shade that I could wear all year round, especially with the exhorbitant price tag of $79. So I decided on shade 28, as I figure I could always use a bronzer over the top if I do get any darker.

The Marc Jacob Re(marc)able foundation is packaged in a sturdy glass bottle with a dot applicator. Whilst it's not the most hygienic applicator, it has quite useful in customising coverage. I would place a few dots around my face - chin, a couple on each cheek, nose and a couple on my forehead - for a full coverage. A little goes a long way with this foundation, which makes up for the price.

I really like that you can customise the coverage simply by using less. However, it also has the potential to be the fullest coverage foundation you would ever try. See photo below.

It evens out my skin tone, and covers blemishes and scars. I don't even need a concealer!
It's also easy to blend. But you have to work fairly quickly before it sets. I have used both my fingers and a brush, and I do prefer using my fingers only because I'm lazy and it's a b-tch to wash foundation out from brush bristles.
I've tried some full/high coverage foundations before, and they tend to feel heavy on the skin. I love that this foundation is nothing like that. It is comfortable on my skin and feels lightweight. 
With it's oil-free formula and matte finish, this foundation is perfect for oily/combination skin. 
If you are looking for a lightweight, full/customisable coverage foundation that is value for money, I would definitely recommend this foundation.
