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!
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.

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.

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.

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.

Good product

I like this product because it evens out my skin tone without being too heavy. I am older and it doesn't sit in my creases Ike other products. Leaves your skin dewy.

Beautiful complexion

This BB cream has a nice even coverage, and lovely satin/dewy finish that reflects amazingly in any lighting. I feel like a beam of light from the clouds when I wear this. It blends out perfectly with a sponge, and doesn't look sparkly or shimmery under harsh lighting. It's a medium coverage, which is perfect for me. It can cling to dry patches of skin, but I still recommend this and will definitely be buying the full size.

I generally do not use facial creams as I have very oily skin and always end up looking greasy & streaky halfway through the day, and end up with annoying breakouts. Because of my skin issues I don't wear makeup every day, just on necessary occasions. I received this sample, let it sit for several months & decided to give it a try. I am SO glad I did. I receive compliments the very first day. The tint is somehow the perfect shade, dispite the fact that I have such a hard time finding shades that suit my whacky Native American/Irish skin tone. It is light, not greasy and easily blends. Perfect for daily wear and fits right into my very low key beauty prep in the morning. I can wear just the cream, or add a smidge of blush & mascara for the normal days when getting gussied up is not required. I get more of a sunkissed, she's been outside look than the obvious applied makeup look for going out. Definitely will be a recurring customer for this one!

Yes, it works. It does leave a beautiful irridecent glow to you. If you use too much, you will have a funny laugh as you may look like a glowing alien, as I did. But, I will buy this in the future. A little goes a long way and it just looks lovely when you need that little glow!
