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

Hey lovelies. 

Well it's about time I talk about this newly addition to my foundation stash, the Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Cover foundation.

I've come to term that I'm officially a foundation junkie. If there's a new foundation release, I'll be hoping around like bunny. Terkinja-kinja macam ekor kena gigit kerengga. Atoi sakit oi, kesian Misbun Sidek dulu.

Tak paham kan. Tak mengapa. I'm krik krik krik like that.

Anyway, there are three traits in foundation that can reel me in just *snaps finger* like that. Haa kau macam mean girl gaya.

Long-lasting, full coverage & matte. And this new foundation from Marc Jacobs claims to do just that!

Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Cover Concentrate 

29 Bisque Golden

All Sephora stores in Malaysia.


The foundation claims to be an ultra-lightweight, oil-free foundation concentrate that delivers 24 hours of full-coverage wear. It contains very concentrated pigment which contributes to it being so full coverage. Like a dot of it can cover soooo much. It's so pigmented, like soooo pigmented. 

The foundation is housed in a thick frosty glass bottle which looks so neat and luxurious. Bold-ing and Italic-ing on looks so neat here cause once you open the top cap up, all hell breaks loose. The foundation will smear all over and even when you close it back, there will always a residue left on the inner rim of the applicator. I've tried wiping it off but it keeps getting messier. You you rebellious you!

The applicator of this foundation is something I've never seen before. Many said that it comes with a dropper but what it really is actually a dotter. 

Wait..dotter who?

What I mean is when you pull open the black cap open, there's another silver cap that you need to twist open that actually is a long wand with sphere shape on the end. So this particular wand or dot-er, if I may, holds the foundation on to it and you can dot the foundation directly to your face or on the back of your hand.

Wai boder wai boder. Why do I bore you with the explanation, here look.

So you pull the black cap off.

There's another cap which embedded to the dotter I was telling you.

Twist it up.

Here here! See? See? The wand with a sphere shape on the end. 

THE dotter.

And here is when I figured out I have anger management issue.

That was after it was being wiped off so enthusiastically that smokes starting to come out from my hand.

So annoying -.-"

Moving on, a dot of this foundation goes a long way.

So let me take you through journey of applying this foundation and how long does it hold on my face.

FYI, I have an acne prone skin with scarring and redness all around my face having Xmas party. And my face produces mother load of oil. Like lombong Petronas. I'm not kidding you I could fill up a glass full of oil in seconds. The way I describe things, so sexay ain't it mayte?

Can you hear the sound of chirping birds? Ahhhh~

Okay so it's not my intention to make you vomit with this close up but I just want to show my actual skin condition. Redness here there, some zits to match, oohh and dents too. #ilovemyself #dahkenapa

So here how it looks with 1 layer on the right side (your left) of the face.

I totally forgot to capture it but I put like one dot to my cheek and another one on the temple. See how well it covers with just that much? Full coverage and pigmentation, check check!

As I was buffering and blending the foundation on my skin, I heard the sound of the brush grazing my skin. I couldn't figured out what it was, but then I realized. The foundation is so light weight that it feels like brushing on a paper. 

Okay, now that we have established that, let me show you how the foundation performs after 4 hours. Since I have a very oily skin, it takes around 4 hours for the oil to surface even if I set the foundation with powder. 

Amongst many reviews that I've seen on Marc Jabobs Re(marc)able foundation is that it is really great for oily skin since it is considered to be a matte, full coverage foundation.

Matte, you say eh mayte?

You probably can't see well from this distance so here, let me zoom you in. Or zoom me in. Heee.

Ok, zoom in some more.

Usually with any foundation, the area that I tend to get oily the most is on my nose and the sides of it it. And this Marc Jacobs foundation is no exception. As you can see my face esp my nose it so shiny like a moon light reflecting on the surface of calm lake on midnight. Did I do a good job in making it sounded not as gross? *fist bump*

In the case of a full coverage foundation, no matter how light weight or oil-free that it claims, it tends to cake up on my face after it gets oily. But what I like with this foundation is that I can touch it up with powder without making it cakey-ier.

Like so. 

So to sum up how the foundation fares on my skin:



After 4 hours

- Full coverage
- Light weight
- Highly pigmented (need just few dots for entire face)
- Comes with so many different shade for every skin undertones (yellow, pink & peach)

- Gets oily after few hours
- Tends to look cakey 
- Expensive
- Clings on dry patches if not properly moisturized beforehand

I didn't highlight this earlier but the foundation does cling on dry patches. It doesn't look like it on my pics above because I've richly moisturized my face beforehand. I've tried using it without prepping my skin and I look all wrinkly like Gollum. Haha. So no matter what skin condition you have, moisturize is a must.

I've had my share of bad luck when it comes to hyped up products, especially foundations. Not this one in particular. I'm easily tempted to try out foundation when I heard so many blooming reviews on it; how it's so beautiful on the skin and so long lasting , only to find the opposite performance on my skin. And that's just it. My skin. You may be oily and I'm oily too but it's still different. Also I live in a very dry and humid area; summer all year long if you may, so foundation melt down is kinda anticipated already. Esp on my greasy face.

That being said, I think this foundation will work great with normal to combination skin. People with dry skin can also rock it too but I would suggest you to heavily moisturize your face. I love that it's very full coverage that I don't need to layer on concealer to cover up my spots. Who has time for that? It's an expensive foundation but I think it's bang for your bucks since you need little amount for your face. Lesser if you already have a flawless or not too flawed complexion. And kudos to this foundation line for catering for every skin undertones with an extensive shade selections. I was a bit overwhelmed at first to be honest cause there's too many to choose from, it took 2 beauty advisors at Sephora to help me out. Me and my complicated complexion. #ilovemyself2.0

Although it's light weight and very thin in consistency when you blend it out, I love a foundation that's a bit "wet". Not making sense right? I mean like Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, you know what I mean? So yeah, I will use this foundation up to the last drop, or dot, but I probably won't be purchasing it again.

Hope this review helps.

Till my next review,

Follow me on Instagram. Or don't. Let your heart leads. Ahiksss~


  1. love the coverage! packaging dah ala2 foundie dior serum sikit sebab main pipette2 gitu. ...tapi harga macam biasa lah..tepuk dahi bersama2~ haha :D

  2. OMG! OCD meradang at that foundation around the sides!!! ARRGGHH!!!

  3. Tengok macam best. Since i have quite normal skin. Kottt. Hahaha

    Tapi bila tengok bab foundation bersepah menjejes itu bakal buat demam sebab ocd maka dok diam je la. Huhu

    1. Haha tuh la. Berlemoihhhh. Tp u p la sephora try lap2 tepi penutup foundation tuh. Kalau bjaya kilatkan maka boleh la beli. Haha.

  4. I love reading your foundation reviews. They are always so detailed with tons of pics =)
    I wanted to get this but now i'm not so sure cause of the annoying packaging. I have to keep wiping my NARS foundation bottle every week and it's driving me insane.

    1. Awww thank you! I don't wanna bore people with my nonsense rambling that's why I incorporate many pics, you know in case people wanna skip the words. Haha. Yeahhh I feel you. And it's not getting any better. It's a complete mess now my foundation; I don't even bother. Maybe I don't have enough OCD haha

    2. I'm going to have to try this. Thanks for the great review!

    3. Glad I could help. Enjoy your new foundation! =)

  5. Hello hi. Of all foundation u use, which one is better for better coverage and no breakout? Hehe

    1. Hai hai hello! So sorry for the late reply! Out of all that I've tried so far, I love Estee Double Wear and Loreal Infallible foundation. Oh and also newly found Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer. They have the best coverage. In terms of no breakout, I couldn't really say for sure cause different type of skin reacts differently to products. Hope that helps ^^

  6. hai.. nak tanye.. u beli foundation tu kat sephora gune membership price ke? or RM229 tu mmg price die?

    1. Hai! That price is the original price at Sephora before discount =)
