Marcelle B.B. Cream: a love story

Monday, May 7, 2012

So, this happened. And it was exciting!

In the interest of Rae not spontaneously exploding out of sheer awkwardness, I’m going to leave you with a few pictures (but not a lot more words). Instead: just a quick merci!! to the lovely ladies and gents at Marcelle (Isabel, I’m looking at you) for this fantastic opportunity – I am always happy to work with a great Canadian brand like Marcelle, but the BB Cream in particular has been getting some serious l o v e in the Chen household as of late.

So, thank you for the opportunity to show my support for a great product! :)

I’ve never been a fan of the “celebrity endorsement” type of advertising, but I feel it’s quite different when it’s bloggers and companies they routinely work with, rather than a stranger with a contract. It’s just– it’s a very different level of trust, you know? I’ll trust a (good) blogger’s word for something because I know that they really have tried and loved the product, vs. the word of a stranger that just happens to be famous.

Anyhow. It happened! There was lots of flailing involved! And you should try the BB Cream, because I can’t use it (‘cones) but I really like it. :D

(My mum, who has never in her life owned a foundation, makes me prep her skin for a night out with the BB. Wears really well, works great with her combination oily-dry skin, and fills in large pores like a dream! So, yeah, I’d say it’s a hit.)

More Marcelle B.B. Cream coverage…

Elle Canada, May 2012. Not sure what other Canadian magazines it’ll be in, so tweet me a photo @theNotice if you see the ad! ;)

  5. Exciting! I've heard so many good things about the Marcelle BB Cream. I REALLY hope they're listening to their fans and are in the works for making a BB Cream with SPF! It's the only think keeping me from buying it so far. That and the fact that I already have 1098347 foundations to us up ;)

    Nice to hear so many good things about the Marcelle BB cream but I'm really, really disappointed it doesn't include a good SPF. That's one facet of most Asian BB creams that I love the most. Especially for oily/combo skin, having to layer on another product is just a pain.

    Congrats on being featured in the Elle ad. Canada seems to be rich in beauty bloggers, which is great to see.

  17. Thanks, Sue! Keep an eye out for an SPF 20 version of Marcelle's BB cream – it's coming out for the fall ;)
