I was looking for a foundation that would help with my shiny t-zone area. I was getting tired of my face feeling like an oil slick by mid afternoon and my foundation sliding away. I came across Marcelle's Matte Finish Foundation and decided to give it a try. After reading the description - I was sold! Marcelle states this foundation is "Specially formulated to control excess oil without drying out your skin, this water-based foundation lets your skin breathe and keeps your complexion looking beautifully fresh all day long." I was sold! I purchased the foundation in the "Barely There" shade.
I've been using this foundation for a little over a month now and have no complaints - this is really good foundation and everything Marcelle said it would be! The formula is really lightweight and covers imperfections with a very natural finish. It is also buildable if you need more coverage. The "Barely There" colour matched my fair skin tone perfectly. My face no longer feels like I'm wearing a ton of makeup and still looks great by 4:00 pm!
I absolutely recommend this foundation for anyone with combination or oily skin - you will not be disappointed!
I really liked this foundation, comparable to MAC!
I bought this at save on in BC for $8.99 on sale from $11.
Away I went having recently used all of my MAC Studio Sculpt and not having the cash to go that route this time save on was a good option. I use Marcelle transparent loose powder religiously, so I thought I would try the foundation and Im always in the market for a sale. I was very suprised with this foundation, it applies really thin but gives great coverage so it doesnt look or feel cakey! Another thing i loved was the fact that I could add layers to it later in the day, with my mac it would look odd in the places i tried to add additional foundation say after work. All in all great drug store foundation, just as good as my studio sculpt and I think this will be my new set up.
I highly recommend setting with a light dusting of loose powder, my foundation looks great and lasts all day!
Aside from the price, this is one of my top picks for foundation! It has nice, even coverage and keeps skin from looking oily. I like to wear this in the wintertime because it's when my skin looks the worst! A very nice base for blush and bronzer. On the plus side, it's also great for more sensitive skin because it does not have all the fragrances and chemicals that other foundations might have hidden in their ingredient list!
Was using Cover Girl for years and wanted to switch to a higher quality line. Marcelle has done great. I normally wait for it to go on sale and stock up as Marcelle is starting to climb in price. I also wish there was a trick to getting the last bit out of the bottle, this bottle is definately harder to get the ends out of. But two thumbs up for quality!
I really like this foundation, unfortunaly my skins gotten a little lighter so i need a lighter shade. all in all it gose on smoothly, the one i tried was a matte finish so it gives u a fairly polished look. it also comes in a lumious finsish and a moisutre rich tecture if your not a fan of the matte finish. on the down side it dosn't come in many shades so it might be hard for some ppl to match there skin tone.
