Summer 2012: Marcelle
Marcelle and Annabelle had their fall launch a few weeks ago, I was luck enough to attend. Even though it was for the fall, the products will be available in July, so let's see what they have to offer.
Marcelle's new shadow quads come in so many shades it is easy to loose count. There will be 9 quads with monochromatic shades inside and 9 with complimentary shades in side. That is 72 shades in total. In a chic black compact with 2 hidden sponge applicators underneath these paraben-free and ophthalmologist tested shadows are just gorgeous . Suggested retail price $15.95.

Gene Youth Serum
This new addition to the Gene Youth line seems like the most exciting skin care item I have seen in a long long time. It claims to even skin tone, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and improves your skins elasticity...wow! The way you dispense it is also really neat. Just twist the lid and the dropper is automatically filled to a pressured perfect does, then press the top and watch it come out. It is also a creamy serum that apparently is a gel that penetrates the deeper layers of the skin for better effectiveness. So neat to play with in the bottle, I really want this one. The fact that it is paraben free adds to my intrigue.
Suggested retail price $42.95
New Age LineNew age is a new line for Marcelle that has three components, a day cream, night cream and eye cream. It holds two patents and took eight years to develop. This one is far to complicated for me to begin to understand but pretty much it is a new anti-wrinkle line that rep lumps the skin, enhances texture and evens out skin tone and corrects redness while oxygenates the cells, which all sounds great to me. Suggested retail price $33.95. These will be in stores this August...so a little longer to wait then the other items.

Swatching the BB with SPF

Note the Annabelle is a bit more runny then the Marcelle. Personally I find the constancy and texture almost exactly like the original, I do find it just slightly more liquified.
Thanks for reading.
