Was really good for taking off eye make up but the bottle ran out extremely quickly because a lot comes out at a time!

I got this in a gift set that included the City Tinted Cream, City Concealer, Translucent Loose Powder and Ultimate Fringe Effect Mascara in addition to the Tinted Cream (all in a large makeup bag) that was on sale 50% off so it was less than $18 CDN. Talk about a total score! The powder was a mini size but still a generous amount and since I rarely use powder (dry skin) so this will last me forever. It has a slight tint to it but does not impact or alter foundation shade whatsoever. I find this to be a decent face powder and generally like Marcelle products. I typically do not use powder so I wouldn’t have sought this out but having it as part of the gift set makes total sense. This is worth checking out if you are into loose powders.

Marcelle’s CC cream is very similar to their BB cream but lighter in texture and finish on the skin. It provides solid medium coverage but is extremely natural, not heavy or artificial at all. They have enclosed the product in an opaque white bottle, presumably to keep light away from any of the active ingredients that aid in color correcting, etc. The product is very creamy but it sinks into the skin and provides added hydration which makes it feel very comfortable and flexible while wearing. Marcelle has a very disappointing shade range. If you are fair to medium they have got you covered and their shades while limited, do in fact have some form of adjusting pigments such that they work on most skin tones. Dark skinned beauties will have zero luck with this brand though. Their deepest shade is good for me when I have a tan but there is nothing deeper in tone beyond that. It’s extremely hard to tell when you are running out because as another reviewer mentioned the bottle feels very light and you can’t see the product through the packaging. All that aside, I do really like this CC cream, but for that matter I like their BB cream, City Tinted cream, and their foundation too.

I don’t wear concealer so when I got this as part of the gift set I passed it onto my daughter to use. It is sufficiently creamy considering it is a stick concealer and blends out on her smooth, young, normal skin but can be patchy if skin has not been moisturized first. Not ideal for covering blemishes, best for under eyes or redness on non-textured skin and it doesn’t last throughout the day. She prefers a liquid concealer with doe foot applicator but this was good for throwing in her bag to keep with her in case of an “emergency”.

I bought this in a gift set that included with the City Concealer, Translucent Loose Powder and Ultimate Fringe Effect Mascara in addition to the Tinted Cream (all in a large makeup bag that is the perfect size for holding skin care, makeup and other toiletries in your luggage) that was on sale 50% off so it was less than $18 CDN. Talk about a total score! The cream usually costs $20 CDN on it’s own so this was an amazing value. There is a decent amount of coverage, although less less than Marcelle’s BB cream, it is good if you are looking to just even out skin tone and have a natural finish to your skin. It’s the kind of base I like for casual days where minimal makeup is required but provides enough to the skin that you won’t be mortified if you are running an errand and having to show your face in public. It also provides extra moisture to those of us with dry skin and doesn’t really set down like a typical BB/CC cream or foundation would. As per the picture, it comes in a squeezy tube but there is no pump, just a tiny but pointy nozzle end which allows you to squeeze out as much or as little as you like. I don’t know that I would purchase this full price but for the deal I got I would say it’s worth it.
