    Ooooh I know, I was so surprised to see an Asian model in a Marcelle's ad as this company usually use the same models! Refreshing change! And I'm SO excited for the BB Cream!

    Hahaha I know what you mean! It's weird how something like this happens a lot the other way around (ie Caucasian models being featured in ads in Asia). If a country as conscious of ethnic diversity as Canada rarely features different ethnicities in campaigns, I think I can wait for another 10 years here in Belgium grrr

    So excited to see this! Both the advertisement and the product itself. Haven't tried out BB creams yet but I'm hoping the Marcelle one will have a good colormatch for me.

    In a way it annoys me that they used an Asian model to sell a BB cream. That sounds really bad so I'll explain further. I'm thinking their reasoning was "Asian girls like BB creams, right? Let's see if we can get them to buy ours! And let's stick in a white girl so they don't feel left out" as opposed to "Let's make our ads reflect the diversity of Canada!" Maybe I'm being cynical but I'd love it more if they used a variety of ethnicities in ads for all their products. But hey, they have to start somewhere.

    I hope this all made sense because I haven't had my coffee yet. =/

    I can't wait for all the North American BB creams to come out in Canada! I really want to see how they fair with their Asian competitors. Besides Marcelle launching one next month, I know Garnier and Boscia (and another one I can't remember) is launching their BB creams in Canada this month. I also heard Vichy was going to launch one this year as well. As for when, I have not really heard anything about that.

    This is definitely going to be interesting.
