Marcelle Spring 2014 ~ #Review

With Spring around the corner it also means new makeup lines.  Each season it is fun to add something different to my daily routine.  A little change now and then makes life more exciting and interesting.  This change is the best from bitter cold winter to warm and sunny Spring.  This season, Marcelle has a few new products that could change you from wow to va-va-voom.

This season, Marcelle wants to focus on the eyes and introduces some hot products that could make your eyes look outstanding.  First, I know long and fuller eyelashes make women's eyes pop so Marcelle launched a new mascara Xtension Plus + ProLash Growth Complex that every women would need.  Marcelle took their award winning (winner of the 2013 ELLE CANADA/ELLE QUEBEC Beauty Grand Prix in the Best Mascara Under $20 category) Xtension Plus Mascara and infused it with a multifunctional conditioner to stimulate the growth of healthy lashes. Keep the same extreme length and curl, and treat your lashes to peptides and vitamins. Each lash will grow faster, stronger and suppler, making it more resistant to breakage.  Tested under ophthalmological control, Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, Paraben free, Hypo-allergenic and perfume free

Did you know that the eyebrows help shape your eyes?  The Marcelle Eyebrow Pen can help make anyone's eyebrows fuller to make your eye stunning.  It helps create the perfect brow shape, an ultra-natural look and a long-lasting impact.  It's in an easy to use pen and it is a fast drying formula.  The felt pen glides on skin and hair to enhance eyebrows or cover-up grey hair, and the slender tip creates soft strokes that imitates natural hair and the look of brows.  Long-lasting (12 hours + ) and smudgeproof formula, tested under ophthalmological control. safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, paraben free, and hypo-allergenic and perfume free

Lastly, check out Marcelle®2-in-1 Retractable Eyeliner 2 new shades - Azurite (blue) and Purpurite (purple).  This is a creamy and already-sharpened tip of this waterproof eyeliner. Use the integrated soft sponge to turn any line into a smoky eye.  It is waterproof, long-lasting (12 hours + ) and smudgeproof formula, integrated sharpener and sponge, tested under ophthalmological control, safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, hypo-allergenic and perfume free.

You know how much I love Marcelle mascara.  They are one of the few brands I could wear without tearing up.  I am so glad they invented this new mascara that includes a formula to create longer and fuller eye lashes.  I have Asian eyelashes so they are short, few, and fall off very easily.   This added ingredient is like getting two products for the price of one.  Immediately I could see my eyelashes fuller after I applied it the first time.  It is easy to remove and I barely notice I was wearing mascara at all.

The Eyebrow Pen felt like I am applying a marker to my brows.  I usually use a pencil or a powder but this pen is waterproof so it lasted all day.  You will need a good steady hand and don't laugh when using this pen because it dries super fast so a simple wipe won't fix it.  You will need a makeup remover to correct any oopsies.  If anyone wants to emphasize their brow this pen will do the job.

The 2-in-1 retractable eyeliner is so easy to use and the most fun to test.  I love how the sponge is attached to the pencil and ready to use when I need a quick fix of my makeup.  I love smoky eyes and the sponge can help achieve the look without too much effort.  The blue is a lovely shade and I believe my daughter will like it too.  I bet the purple looks just as good or maybe even better.

The Marcelle new eye makeup products can help many anyone eye's look beauty.  If anyone needs to bat their eye lashes to get someone to do them a favour, I think Marcelle can help you.  You might be the lucky ones and get everything you want with a bat of your eyes.

  3. I would absolutely love to try the Xtension Plus + ProLash Growth Complex

  4. I have to buy new mascara every two to three months, if I go longer then that my eyes sting when I am wearing it

    I haven't tried Marcelle products yet but their Xtension Plus + ProLash Growth mascara sounds awesome, but I don't use colored mascara because I like my usual black or brown/black.
