Marcelle

Birchbox Breakdown

We’'ll be the first to admit: Smooth, dewy skin is right at the top of our beauty wish list (right next to endless, clump-free lashes). This multitasking BB cream gets us much closer to our goal——and with minimal effort. It hydrates and calms skin, evens tone, controls shine, lightly masks imperfections, and, thanks to tiny flecks of light-reflecting pigments, infuses skin with a fresh-from the-yoga-studio radiance. This hypoallergenic, gluten-free, perfume-free, and oil-free formula is perfect for those with sensitive skin.

How to Use

Using your fingers, smooth a few dabs over clean skin. Blend thoroughly.

Works so well I didn't even realize it!
Sampled

I received this awhile ago in my Birchbox and since NONE of the other BB creams ever work for me, I waited months to even try it.

I have light olive skin with yellow undertones, and usually have to custom mix my own foundation - usually everything is too pink for me, even when I do it this way. Also, I have acne scars, rosacea, severe dry and flaky patches, oiliness...just a little of everything!! I would usually NEVER get closeup with my boyfriend without my custom foundation blend, concealer and powder, topped off with highlighter, bronzer and eyeliner......(for my minimalist look).

So summer happened and I needed to change up and simplify my routine. I finally tried this and I applied it thickly the same way I would my foundation. Didn't look so good. Later I tried a different approach, pressing small dots of product into damp skin only where I really need it and at first didn't think that it was doing anything, but after a few days I realized that I wasn't "noticing" anything because the product worked so well and subtly that the problem areas had disappeared before my eyes. I was so used to seeing this like pinky beige paint cancelling out my regular face, that when I still saw my freckles and a natural, dewy look at first I thought the product didn't do anything.

I love the results so much that I have cut the number of other makeup products I use in half and am ready to chuck the 2 bottles of foundation I had just purchased.

Not too sparkley
Sampled

So I'm trying out alternatives to regular foundation. I have combination skin, I can get oily in my T-zones and my cheeks like to be dry.

First, I tried this by itself, and noticed it's a little shimmertastic for me.

I put a CC cream on top that came in a flat color... it was PERFECT! I thought it could get too thick, but no, my face feels dewy and there are no dry patches. The combo is still less thick than a primer and foundation.

I'll keep testing, but I'm pretty happy with this product.

Awesome BB cream!

Makes my face look so smooth and doesn't cake on! Love this because it doesn't clog my pores as much as other Bb creams do.

Perfect BB cream
Sampled

I am always skeptical of BB creams. I like them, but they just either provide too much coverage or not enough. However, I loved this product. It is thicker than other BB creams I have tried and blends out nicely. It really gives you the "your skin, but better" appearance. The smell is a little odd, but you can't smell it after it's dried.

FAB
SampledPurchased

I have tried many bb and cc creams & this one is my favorite. Living in Minnesota can get pretty pale and drab during the winter months which is why I love this bb cream. I can get a natural glow without looking streaky or getting the infamous line between my face & neck. LOVE.

Golden Glow

This is so perfect, I hate heavy foundation and Marcelle Golden Glow offers a light touch to your skin and is enriched with vitamins good for your skin. This product also softens your skin and gives it a beautiful glow and shimmer. I absolutely love it

Nice glow
Sampled

I'm normally pretty skeptical about bb creams, I feel like they never truly live up to their labels. This one on the other hand surprised me. It was very light on my skin, and had great coverage. It left my skin with a healthy glow and didn't cause any break outs.
