This BB cream has a really wonderful texture, moisturizing and really evens out my skin despite being half a shade darker than my skin tone. It doesn't have SPF or very good lasting power, but it gets the job done when I'm in a rush in the morning or too lazy to put on liquid foundation. It can be a little heavy if you're piling on products (for example, I use a BHA exfoliator & moisturizer/sunscreen serum under) which is why I always finish with a translucent powder in the end. I don't think I will be repurchasing from this brand, but I don't regret this buy either.
BB? no way
How could this one be counted as a BB cream while it has no sign of SPF protection? Please, make another version or improve this one, please
Nice and Subtle
I got this in a box years ago when I rarely wore any kind of foundation or creme on my face and luckily I saved it and found it recently when I ran out of my Clinique foundation. I liked this even more, it matched my summer skin tone perfectly without making it look grey which many do. I have dry skin and I feel like this made my complexion look and feel better but natural. I'm likely to buy this again, I hope the formula hasn't changed!
Great feel, but small frame of time you can use
I love Marcelle's BB/CC products - they provide coverage with a barely there feel and don't leave you looking "cakey" like thicker foundations and powders do. However, keep in mind that when it comes to products with limited shades such as this one, you have to time its use according to shade to match up with the time of the year to match best with the level of tan your skin is at the time, so one shade does NOT work year round! I use the Golden Glow BB in the summer which I feel is friendly for a decent range of summer tanned skintones.
good coverage, but not too heavy
MArcelle feels good and not icky on the skin. My skin is sensitive and it didnt seam to have any negative effects. My only issue is it left my skin shiny. I dont normally have shiny skin and it wasnt that nice dewy effect , it just looked greasy like i had to go wash my face.
