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.

I really liked the way this felt on my face , the coverage, and the glow it really gave my skin.

Glowing BB
Sampled

I received this in my March box and unfortunately the shade was a touch too yellow for my fair neutral skin tone. I did enjoy the smooth texture and glow that the product gave though. I can't give a review about the staying power since I wasn't able to thoroughly wear/test this but there was a slightly unpleasant smell to the formula that's a bit distracting when putting it on. Overall, nice product and I do wish that I had a shade that was better suited for my skin tone. It would be great for Summer!

Fantastic for olive skin tones
SampledPurchased

25 year old ethnically-ambiguous white woman with dry, acne-prone skin and some redness. My skin tone shifts between light-medium and medium. I tan easily and almost never burn.

I've been using BB creams for three years now from different brands including Missha, Dr. Jart, and Smashbox. I've also been using tinted moisturizers since high school, most recently Josie Maran. My skin gets tan and then fades throughout the year so I end up having to mix different products to make the right shade or mix BB cream with moisturizer to get lighter coverage. Most recently, I was mixing Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream with Josie Maran Protect + Perfect Argan Daily [Tinted] Moisturizer to get this moisturizing, covering concoction. I also mixed the Smashbox BB cream with moisturizer to keep in my gym bag and that had good coverage, but after trying the Marcelle BB cream I'm ready to dump everything else.

This is hands-down the best quality, coverage, blend, and feel of any BB creams I've used. Most non-Korean BB creams are too much like foundation: heavy and thick with a lot of coverage so you have to match it perfectly to your skin tone. The Marcelle BB cream actually lives up to the BB cream name. It blends with my skin so it doesn't look like I'm wearing foundation (I usually just smear it on with clean fingers) and it somehow covers the redness and dark spots from my acne. It moisturizes like the Josie Maran moisturizer but it feels lighter, like how my Missha BB cream used to feel.

I'll be switching to the Marcelle exclusively and testing it out on several trips this next month to see how it holds up on a long day of walking. I haven't been paying great attention to how I look at the end of the day but I'll definitely be checking now.

It's a bummer that this brand is exclusive to Birchbox but I guess I have to use those points somehow, right?

Love this cream! It doesn't has the caked on feeling like many other bb creams I've used before.

First time trying a bb cream. I loved it!

I've heard about bb creams and have been wanting to try one. For my first time I'm glad I used this product and will most likely be purchasing it once it runs out.

I have other products that do a better job than this one. Not a huge fan of the way this made my skin feel either.

I tried this product after I received a replacement form Birchbox because my original sample busted in my March box. Customer service was quick to get me a replacement and I really enjoy this product. I like the feel of it on my skin and it has a good light coverage. I plan on using it more as the weather gets warmer and I get more tan through the summer!
