Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)Able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate

RRP: £37 for 22ml
# of shades available: 22

--What does the promo say?--
"The weight is over: 24-hour full, flawless coverage is yours in an instant with this ultra-lightweight foundation concentrate by Marc Jacobs. This revolutionary oil-free formula contains twice as much pigment as a leading full-coverage foundation, but it is emulsified with ground-breaking ingredients so the smallest amount completely covers with dot-on perfection."

The curved shape of the bottle is unusual enough to catch the eye, and yet also practical in that it does stand upright. The silver stopper and glass applicator are both unique and sophisticated - traits accentuated by the opaque glass of the bottle and minimalist approach (with just the Marc Jacobs logo adorning it).

You'd think the glass applicator would be tricky to use, but it's not: just dab a dot onto your forehead and then one more onto each cheek, and blend with your fingers, a sponge or a foundation brush. Believe me when I say that this will do your whole face. Very easy to apply - just watch out for tide marks around the jawline and eyes.

My shade (Ivory 10) is the palest available and perfect for me. It blends seamlessly and provides the excellent coverage promised, with very little touchup from concealer or powder needed. It's matte yet radiant, with the best coverage I've ever experienced.

Nothing discernible. I'm convinced that many more brands are getting increasingly better at this.

--Texture and consistency--
Blends smoothly and flawlessly without feeling oily or greasy. When it dries, it's powder-light and not at all cakey. Brilliant!

Lasts all day, with no need for reapplication. Does not smudge or fade, and yet is easy enough to remove when required.

--Value for money--
Even a pea-sized amount would be too much per application, which shows just how little you need to cover your whole face. Has excellent coverage without clogging your skin, won't budge all night, and looks great in photos. Simply wonderful.
