Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow

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.

Works so well I didn't even realize it!

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.

Love it!

I use this everyday, first received it as a sample and liked it so much I bought it. It works well alone or under makeup.

Golden glow

This definitely gives my skin a golden glow but I wouldn't call it a bb cream. It doesn't offer any kind of coverage, it's almost like a liquid bronzer. I think it might work well mixed with foundation but it feels silly to put this under concealor

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.

Amazing!

I've received several BB creams and haven't been impressed, until now! I love this one. Texture and color are excellent- carries a high price tag but I think it's worth it. I'm wondering if it will be too dark for my skin tone during the winter months though.

Love the lightness

At first I thought golden glow was going to be too dark - perfect! No make-uppy look. Light but covers very well. I bought it so you know I loved it

Not greasy long lasting!

This stuff is great. Not only does it not melt off but it doesn't leave your face feeling greasy.

Not for me

I've never tried BB cream. Its not that its a bad product I just didn't care for the coverage. If you like a light moisturizing coverage then this is greta. Personally I like more coverage.

Good coverage, too orange

This BB cream had a good coverage, but was a bit orange. In addition, it seemed a bit oily.
