Fantastic for olive skin tones

25 year old ethnically-ambiguous white woman with dry, acne-prone skin and some redness. My skin tone shifts between light-medium and medium. I tan easily and almost never burn.I've been using BB creams for three years now from different brands including Missha, Dr. Jart, and Smashbox. I've also been using tinted moisturizers since high school, most recently Josie Maran. My skin gets tan and then fades throughout the year so I end up having to mix different products to make the right shade or mix BB cream with moisturizer to get lighter coverage. Most recently, I was mixing Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream with Josie Maran Protect + Perfect Argan Daily [Tinted] Moisturizer to get this moisturizing, covering concoction. I also mixed the Smashbox BB cream with moisturizer to keep in my gym bag and that had good coverage, but after trying the Marcelle BB cream I'm ready to dump everything else.This is hands-down the best quality, coverage, blend, and feel of any BB creams I've used. Most non-Korean BB creams are too much like foundation: heavy and thick with a lot of coverage so you have to match it perfectly to your skin tone. The Marcelle BB cream actually lives up to the BB cream name. It blends with my skin so it doesn't look like I'm wearing foundation (I usually just smear it on with clean fingers) and it somehow covers the redness and dark spots from my acne. It moisturizes like the Josie Maran moisturizer but it feels lighter, like how my Missha BB cream used to feel.I'll be switching to the Marcelle exclusively and testing it out on several trips this next month to see how it holds up on a long day of walking. I haven't been paying great attention to how I look at the end of the day but I'll definitely be checking now.It's a bummer that this brand is exclusive to Birchbox but I guess I have to use those points somehow, right? « less

Works so well I didn't even realize it!

I received this awhile ago in my Birchbox and since NONE of the other BB creams ever work for me, I waited months to even try it.I have light olive skin with yellow undertones, and usually have to custom mix my own foundation - usually everything is too pink for me, even when I do it this way. Also, I have acne scars, rosacea, severe dry and flaky patches, oiliness...just a little of everything!! I would usually NEVER get closeup with my boyfriend without my custom foundation blend, concealer and powder, topped off with highlighter, bronzer and eyeliner......(for my minimalist look).So summer happened and I needed to change up and simplify my routine. I finally tried this and I applied it thickly the same way I would my foundation. Didn't look so good. Later I tried a different approach, pressing small dots of product into damp skin only where I really need it and at first didn't think that it was doing anything, but after a few days I realized that I wasn't "noticing" anything because the product worked so well and subtly that the problem areas had disappeared before my eyes. I was so used to seeing this like pinky beige paint cancelling out my regular face, that when I still saw my freckles and a natural, dewy look at first I thought the product didn't do anything.I love the results so much that I have cut the number of other makeup products I use in half and am ready to chuck the 2 bottles of foundation I had just purchased. « less

Amazing BB cream

I generally have a hard time finding BB creams, or foundations of any type, that work with my skin tone/issues. I personally have freckled skin, and I'm in my mid 30s battling some expression lines,large pores, as well as some beginning fine creases. For me, the typical problem is that full coverage things just make my face look dirty, by blending the freckles...but bb's usually don't have enough coverage for my flaws. Anyhow, this BB cream was amazing...the golden hue really worked well for me, and instead of making my face look dirty, it actually defined and enhanced the freckled look. The overall glisten that it gives off, makes the skin look dewy and young. This BB cream did not settle into creases or pores, and it didn't leave a neck line. Seem's to just take your skin, and make it better. So, in conclusion, here are some bullet points that I loved about this BB cream. - Safe on my sensitive skin, absolutely no reaction to this cream. - No harsh scent. - Product felt light on. Would recommend this bb cream, great for summer, super easy application. « less

Impressed

I knew nothing of BB creams prior to receiving this in my Birchbox in July. I used it and thought it ok initially. I would use over my moisturizer. Very light coverage and was lighter than my skin tone but blended effortlessly, even with my deeper coloring.I decided to do some BB cream research and decided to try a unnamed Korean BB cream since it reviewed so well. When it arrived it paled in comparison to Marcelle Golden Glow. That is when I realized that it had all the things that i was looking for a BB Cream: corrects problem skin, mine being dry/redness/uneven tone/acne. As well as being a texture that is easily blendable. Most importantly I tested it by using it WITHOUT putting on a layer of moisturizer and my skin felt supple and not tight... It truly has become an all in one step post cleansing in the morning.The Korean brand BB Cream did not eliminate my step for treatment serum or moisturization and I felt was too much coverage; the texture of my skin was left feeling tacky.Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow was what I was looking for the whole time and I didn't even realize it. « less

I was expecting more

From all of the reviews, this BB cream seemed really nice. I had high hopes for it. I've never used a BB cream before this one but my understanding was that it is like a tinted moisturizer.When I received my package, I was really excited. I tested it on the back of my hand and it was nice. I could see some glitter flecks on my hand which I was not expecting. I thought it would just leave a nice glow.When I tried it on my face, I really didn't like it. I felt that it looked caked on my face. I even tried rubbing it in more and it did not help. Now, I usually do not wear a lot of makeup so maybe that was my problem. I usually only use the Bare Minerals loose powder foundation with bronzer and mineral veil and it is much lighter and just makes my skin look smoother. I was expecting that this BB cream would make my skin look smoother and healthier and minimize pores but it did not do that. I wanted a more natural look, like people might not be able to tell I was wearing it but instead it was unnatural looking. Plus it was not very moisturizing to my face. It dried my skin out and made me feel more oily. « less

Does anyone have good recommendations for BB and CC creams?? I’m taking a break from my regular cover fx foundation to see if it’s as good as others say

Very lightweight, not full coverage but still evens skin out

Can anyone recommend me some good bb/cc creams? Something that’s low priced has good coverage and is really hydrating would be great :)
