Marcelle was one of the very first Canadian cosmetics brands I was introduced to. I’ve been using it for almost the entire time I’ve been in Canada (just over 5 years). Marcelle also offers skin care but I am out of most of that at the moment so I’ll have to save it for another post.
I’ll have to start with my Marcelle BB, CC, and now DD creams which I’m in love with! I had heard of BB creams before because I was stationed in South Korea for 2 years while serving in the U.S. Army. When Marcelle revealed their BB cream, I was definitely impressed. It had the coverage of an “Asian” BB, without the typical grey cast.
I have a review posted (or will have one shortly posted) about this CC cream so I won’t go into too much detail here only to say that I am enjoying using this product. It’s infused with 24k gold and glides on the skin. It’s also supposed to reduce the appearance of dark spots, a big selling point with me due to my hyperpigmentation.
Imagine my surprise when I walked into my local rexall and saw this on the Marcelle display. Had no idea it was coming out, didn’t know what to think of it. So I tried it out at the store and was immediately sold. Great coverage, with broad spectrum protection from UVB rays? Sold! Look for an upcoming blog post on this product.
Just the color of this pencil made my mouth water….and I was even more pleased with the creamy application. This is a waterproof pencil however, it is so easy to blend and is so intensely pigmented. What more could a girl ask for? Oh how about 16 different shades?
You know how I feel about the twisty Dalton cosmetics mascara…..well, this version from Marcelle (Twist-push-up) is quite a bit different. This wand was designed to literally ‘push-up’ your lashes. Don’t believe me? Give it a try…then twist the brush to pull the bristles together, and apply a 2nd coat for volume. It’s really not too good to be true….it works. Brilliant!
Not sure if this is available (yet) as it was sent to me for review but boy oh boy, ladies-get your hands on one of these crayons as soon as your can. This is also a twist up and the color you see in the photo is what you are going to get on your lips. If you like high pigment/color payoff and easy, hydrating application, this ones for you. I love a good red lip but hate the process with the lip liner, the color, the powder blot. This is a product that will go easily into any handbag, even the smallest clutch so touch-ups aren’t so tedious.
If you haven’t tried Marcelle, you should! Enough said!
