Review: Marcelle & Annabelle

Okay, so in a few days, it’ll be officially Autumn and there’ll be no more postponing of my In Beauty Fall/Winter Trends post ..Summer, I can’t believe you’re leaving so soon! . Sorry where was I? Ah, yes… The awesome ladies of Marcelle Group sent me a box of goodies early last month, and my students, clients and I have all had nothing but positive things to say about the products.

I’ve been a fan of Marcelle and Annabelle cosmetics since I discovered them (er, just earlier this year!) and have been using Annabelle Twist Ups, Smudge Pots and my Marcelle BB Creme daily since. In fact my very first BB Creme was Marcelle’s and guess what? It lasted me til now (approx 5 months) and I am so happy they came up with the 24 hour moisture BB Creme! ($22.95) I was looking at the products wishing they had something with more hydration, so I wouldn’t have to try another brand’s BB Creme, and there it was! (Thank you, Marcelle). It was what was “missing” for my skin’s needs with the regular BB Creme, and here’s exactly why I love it (from their website):

8 IN 1 MULTI-BENEFITS

  1. Offers intense 24H hydration
  2. Evens out skin tone
  3. Protects from premature aging and environmental stresses
  4. Promotes skin regeneration
  5. Controls shine
  6. Soothes and calms
  7. Reduces the appearance of imperfections
  8. Provides anti-dull radiant complexion

BB Cream 24H Intense Moisture replaces these products from your daily routine:

  • Intense Moisturizer: revitalizes, helps protect skin and improve its appearance.
  • Tinted Corrector: evens out and illuminates skin tone.
  • Make-up Base: helps hold your make-up all-day. May be worn alone, and/or before your usual foundation for total coverage.

Back to that box of goodies…Here’s what I got from the Marcelle Group and my thoughts:

I’m pretty sure I received an antioxidant eyeshadow/eye base from Marcelle, too..But it may have gone home with someone. (Le sigh- hope it went to a good home!).

The marketing materials and looks of Annabelle and Marcelle collections always call out to me because I love the kind of makeup that just enhances the face and features, and looks pretty, fresh and wearable. The fact that the pay-off of their skincare benefits are there, too is all the more reason I have more of their products on my personal wish-list. I work hard (shout out to all the hardworking mommies out there!) and I appreciate hardworking products for real women so much.

Most of these were part of the brands’ Spring 2013 launch, but are still in the stores, and are here to stay (BB and CC range). Go try them for yourself..go, go! ;)

Next posts…The first Elle Canada Beauty Box Fall 2013 reviews, Cover FX reviews, and In Beauty Fall/Winter 2013. Coming soon :)
