I think foundation is one of my favorite makeup items to try. It can be so different depending upon how my skin is acting, so testing each foundation out takes time. I typically like a demi-matte to matte full coverage finish. I also find I go through phases with foundation where they will look awesome for awhile and then all of a sudden I can’t make them work for the life of me. I never count something out though because as stated previously, my skin plays such a big role in my foundation routine.
I have decided to start trying more foundations and give my reviews. Its been awhile since I branched out so here I go.
I kept hearing everyone with oily skin rave about the Marc Jacobs Remarkable foundations so I decided to give it a try. Retail cost is $55.o0 for 1 fl oz. It is available on the Marc Jacob’s website as well as Sephora. I have the color Bisque Neutral 27 which was a perfect match. There are 22 shades to choose from which is pretty good.
I really like this foundation but if I am noticing my skin is more on the combination side, I must use a luminous moisturizer or primer or it will cake up on the dry areas of my face. I like to apply it with my makeup sponge (prefer the Real Technique Miracle Complexion Sponge) over a brush. You only need a small amount to cover your face and neck with medium coverage and I use my concealer to add any additional coverage as needed. I do set any areas I conceal with a powder especially under my eyes otherwise I will get creasing. My whole face doesn’t need a powder but if you are extra oily, then I would suggest it.
I do suggest this foundation and will continue to keep it in my foundation rotation.
Do you have any suggestions on what I should try next?
