I think it’s pretty safe to say I’ve been on an Annabelle/Marcelle kick lately. You know, keepin’ it Canadian! And since summer is now in full swing here in the Okanagan (I’m talking almost 40 degrees celsius here people!) it’s essential that I faux my glow. Annabelle and Marcelle have come out with some amazing products to do just that this season and here is yet another one. I know you all know (and love) Marcelle BB Cream in Original but have you tried Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow? If you haven’t, you definitely should!

 The Claims

 

Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow states that it is an 8-in-1 beauty wonder! And here’s what they are:

  1. Provides a Golden Glow with just enough Illumination
  2. Evens Skin Tone
  3. Offers immediate and long term Hydration
  4. Protects against premature aging
  5. Promotes skin Regeneration
  6. Soothes and Calms
  7. Reduces Appearance of Imperfection
  8. Reduces Shine

As you may notice, a couple of these benefits are pretty similar – Evens skin tone/Reduces imperfections for example – but even if this is a 6-in-1 cream, it’s better than a 1-in-1! The difference between the Marcelle BB Cream Original and Golden Glow is (obviously) a different shade, with Golden Glow being, well, more golden! It provides just the right amount of healthy radiance to the skin making you look like you’ve been naturally sunkissed, but not over baked!

This BB Cream also contains antioxidants, aloe and camomile, making it not only a great cosmetic but a great skin care product as well.

 

The Results

 

Just like the Original, this BB cream preformed beautifully! It’s got a great, light texture but does provide some coverage, evens skin tone and hydrates. I’m not sure about the reducing shine, since there are light-reflecting properties to this formulation which do the complete opposite, although it doesn’t make skin greasy if that’s what it means. My skin looks dewy and glowing when I use this BB Cream, which I use more as a primer and layer with strategically applied concealer and sometimes powder foundation. Hopefully, the anti-aging and regenerating claims are also true, though I can’t attest to them yet! I believe a touch more coverage and a touch more mattification would benefit this formulation but that’s my opinion for my skin type. It also would be 2x better if it was offered in a Light and Dark shade to create a golden glow on any skin tone. It’s a definite “Try Me” from Cosmetically Curious!
