Marc Jacobs Full Coverage Foundation and Coconut Face Primer

I love Marc Jacobs Beauty. In addition to extremely sleek and luxurious packaging, the products themselves are wonderful. I've raved about the eyeliners, which are probably my favorite item, but I also own a mascara, some lip glosses, concealers, etc. So you can bet I was super excited when I learned they had a new primer and foundation launching. I ordered the primer online and got the foundation at a Sephora near me at home -- it's so new it wasn't on the shelves yet, but they still helped me find a perfect match.

First, let's talk about the Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Primer. I love the luxurious glass bottle and love even more that it comes with a pump. This is meant to be hydrating and nourishing, which helps when dealing with a fuller coverage foundation. It's supposed to make you look younger (which isn't really a concern for me) as well as smooth out imperfections. I'm loving it so far. 

I have the Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate (that's a mouthful) in Bisque Medium, which is for fair skin with neutral undertones. There are a lot more shades than the original gel serum foundation, so I would suggest swatching this in store. It's a full coverage foundation, so you only need a few jobs. I'm not crazy about the dropper applicator but it makes do. It reminds me of a thicker version of the Cover FX drops -- a little goes a long way. Although it's more matte than dewy, I find it sinks into my skin perfectly and provides great coverage. It's lightweight yet long wearing and would work for any skin type.

Even though these launched less than a week ago, have you tried them? Let me know if you have any other Marc Jacobs product recommendations!

  1. I had to do a little bit of a double take when I saw the Coconut primer there! I love coconut oil and all of its beauty benefits but I didn't know that MJ launched this product! I've heard only good things about the foundation so I'm still quite tempted but I think I need to reduce my stash before adding more to my stash!
