Marcelle BB cream

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Just take a deep breath and look at this Canadian beauty, ladies and gentlemen! I have never been so proud - THIS is Canada's very first BB cream from our trusted Canadian brand I love dearly, Marcelle.

If you missed all the buzz about this product when it was revealed at the brand's Premier event a while back, here's the rundown: It is a Skin Enhancer, as how the brand sees it (they said it on the packaging, lol). To me, it is a moisturizer, corrector, mattifyer and primer with self-adjusting pigments. We're done!

Just kidding :) But it is simply THAT, an all-in-one product that saves you time with the morning routine when you have to use less products but still achieve the same result.

Marcelle's BB stands for Beauty Balm, featuring a light weight formula, oil free, paraben free, perfume free, hypo-allergenic and non comedogenic, good for all ages and all skin types. Feel good already?

There's more, what are the good stuff in it?
- Hyaluronic Acid - helps minimize wrinkles, hydrates
- Aquaxyl - moisturizes and helps correct imperfections
- Glycerin - hydrates
- Vitamin E - an antioxidant
- Aloe Vera, Green Tea and Chamomile - soothe
- Soft Focus powders - reflects light, enhances complexion.
So cool, isn't it?

Also, A+ for packaging, a tube with an airless pump. A strong pump that is, not the flimsy one that takes a hundred pump to get the product out. You have perfect control over the amount of product you need. For my whole face, I only need one pump.

Here it is on the right, one pump, in Light to Medium shade. Next to it is MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC37, for colour comparison, which I know lots of you are wondering. I would say this shade is a neutral nude colour, not too yellow, not too pink.

Once rubbed in, the product is invisible on my skin. It moisturize my face, evens out my skin tone and primes and mattifies it for foundation application. No moisturizer before and no powder after, and I didn't need to blot all day. Told you it is easy!

Marcelle BB cream also comes in Medium to Dark. With the self-adjusting pigments in the formula, I don't think colour matching would be an issue.

The product will be in store February 6, retails CAD22.95 for 1.5oz/ 45ml. However, this post is up TODAY because it is the day you can grab this multi-tasker off the website for the Marcelle BB cream, if you don't want to wait 3 weeks. Limited quantities, and shipping is free with CAD25 orders.

I have a line-up of FOTDs featuring Marcelle BB cream and a few drugstore products from my hauls lately, so stay tuned :)


  1. Never tried BB cream but living in Korea I hear no end of it. All my friends in korea use it and say it's really good.

    May take the plunge and try it myself soon.
