Marcelle is a cruelty free Canadian company. This costs $18 at Shoppers Drug Mart.I love this foundation. I have repurchased it three times now, and I will likely continue to repurchase. I use the shade Ivory and it matches me. Marcelle products all seem to have a yellowy undertone, which I really appreciate. My undertone is pretty finicky and a lot of foundations oxidize on me - Marcelle doesn't do that! This is a light coverage foundation. It could probably be called a BB cream, if I'm being honest. It is very liquidy and you can still see acne through it. That being said, I really love it! I use a blending sponge to apply it and while my acne is still visible it makes me skin look healthier overall. It covers up the general rosiness of my face and does dull acne spots. I use this in combination with the flawless fusion powder and I really like how it looks! If all you want is light coverage foundation that you can't feel, then I say give this a shot.

I really like this foundation. It is a bit sheer, but it does last all day.

I really have been liking this foundation lately as an everyday base for my makeup. It has medium coverage and i generally apply with a makeup sponge.Initially, when I apply it, I see a lot of redness peeking through, but as I press it more into my skin, I find it covers the discolouration quite well. I use concealer to cover individual spots and under my eyes. There is absolutely no scent in this foundation which is awesome for sensitive skin and it doesn't clog pores. Once it sets, I find it doesn't budge on my face. It sets to a nice satin finish and looks amazingly skin-like which I LOVE. It almost looks like I'm not wearing foundation, that my skin is just that good.There is no scent at all which is awesome, and it's dermatologist-tested. Doesn't break me out, which is great. This will be on rotation permanently and I've already picked up a summer shade.

Im on my 2nd bottle of this foundation. I use a light touch with my makeup, sometimes using it only as a concealer to even out some redness or circles with sheer coverage, and sometimes a little more coverage for a different look. It blends very naturally into my skin leaving a hydrated finish. A little powder will take away extra sheen from nose and forehead and stays put all day. Fragrance free, hypoallergenic, great lasting wear. Canadian. I feel no need to switch from this foundation... the matching concealer is TOUGH stuff, i barely ever need to use that unless i get a blemish or mark of some sort that needs to be hidden. I own it but reserve it for truly deserving marks, and prefer just to use my elf corrector for under-eye circles. I recommend this foundation 100%.

This did not break me out, and it is actually a better formula than the others I've tried. It comes in a pump bottle. I put serum on first, and then the foundation spreads on easily and doesn't look too thick. This costs half as much as the sensitive skin Vichy foundation that I was trying out and this one is less sheer. I wish it could be more dewy and light textured, but for what it is, I am satisfied. It looks smooth and natural, it's easy to blend, and the lightest shade is just right for me. Not too yellow or pink.Update Mar 6/18: It has given me a red rash the last two times I used it. It's got dimethicone in it. I loved the way it made my skin look but I have to throw it out now. The search goes on for something that will not ruin my skin.

Limited range of shades but if you are able to find a match... Oh how wonderful this formula is! Not surprising really considering how much I love their BB creams. This foundation is enriched with vitamins A, C, and E, is waterproof and lasts up to 10 hours, not to mention is fragrance-free, paraben-free, and oil-free. Coverage is customizable, but if you layer over the BB cream, you will get FULL coverage with all the skin care benefits. I found the finish "satin" and very natural. I bought the shades Medium Beige (summer) and Buff Beige (winter) which has a yellow undertone. I love these foundations, and Marcelle as a brand in general. There is ZERO transfer with this foundation, skin is hydrated and feels comfortable, like you are not wearing any makeup at all. As far as coverage goes, the foundation does a good job of evening out my skin tone, covering redness and dark spots too. It is neither thick nor thin, rather a typical liquid foundation consistency, comes in a glass bottle with a pump. As I mentioned it is fragrance-free, and I do mean that this has NO scent to it at all. Not even a "makeup" scent. This foundation did not break down at all during the day, not even through extreme heat, sweat, etc. and it was easily removed with my cleansing balm at the end of the day.The only down side to this foundation (and to this brand in general) is the lack of shades. Those with darker skin will not find a shade to match, especially as I purchased the darkest shade and it was even a hint too light for me during summer and I'm normally light/medium without a tan. If you have fair to medium skin tones I recommend you give it a try. I wish we could give 1/2 lippie ratings as I'd give this 4.5 due to the lack of shades but since it works perfectly for me I'm leaving it at 5 lippies and not rounding down to 4.

Usually love Marcelle products but I found this foundation was more watery than the Marcelle bb cream which is super disappointing. Bought it in hopes it would offer slightly heavier coverage than the Bb cream... Very disappointed. :-(

This is an incredibly beautiful foundation. I initially tested this foundation on the back of my hand at WalMart and loved the finish but didn't buy it for at least a month because I have many foundations (mostly high end), that need to be used up. I had a craving for a new foundation and took the plunge and I'm so glad I did. Every single time I wear this I get compliments on my skin. Even from my husband!! It has just the right amount of brightening without looking shiny or fake. It sits incredibly well on somewhat sensitive skin which can get a bit dry in places from the potent skin care I use which includes heavy duty glycolic, Retin A, BHA and AHA. At my age you have to through everything at it that you can! This foundation doesn't settle in dry patches, doesn't settle into fine lines, and doesn't break up. Best of all, it always looks natural. I'm an NW20 and Buff Beige is perfect on me. I will be buying the next darker shade for the summer because despite the spf 50 I wear every single day, I still get a bit of colour :( . There is no fragrance, it's in a pump, it's not tested on animals, and it's well priced. Love it! The only thing is, if you have a deeper skin tone there are no shades to match.

This broke me out so badly after using it for 3 weeks. I actually thought that I was having an allergic reaction to food at one point, and soon realized something else had been causing the blemishes. I suspected maybe my brushes, moisturizer, other products, shampoo, but I haven't changed any routines/products in probably 7 or 8 years. It turned out being this all along. This is the only new product I had used in all those years. I'm sad because I have never had a reaction to their products before and I'm very sensitive to basically everything. There is something in the ingredients that is not top notch and incredibly half-ass or cheap - sorry Marcelle. The coverage was terrible too. It didn't really cover at all and I don't need a lot, (I just need enough to even out my pigment). Will be returning the product asap! *****Do not use this if you have sensitive/acne prone skin!!!!

I love this product!!! It is by the most hydrating drug store foundation I have ever purchased. It is so silky smooth and has such a beautiful coverage. It makes my face look and feel healthy and natural. After using it I have gotten several compliments on how smooth and clean my skin looks. I 100% recommend this foundation to anyone looking for a hydrating and glowing foundation.
