Marcelle’s new focus for the season: The Eyes!
Not MY typical eye product (i.e. eyeshadows), but the accents to make the eye makeup pop.
And I have no problem with that.
Here we are longing for Spring, for the warmer weather, and for new makeup. I received a mascara tube and 2 types of pen products which turned out to be brow and eye items.
I am happy to see our own trusted Canadian brand keep working on new products to keep us intrigued. Continue to read and find out what these new products are 🙂
First off, this is the Xtension Plus + Pro Lash Growth Complex mascara in Black.
It is the step-up version from the well-known Xtension Plus mascara. with a conditioner (with glycerin, panthenol, vitamins, amber extract and peptides) to stimulate lash growth while maintaining the lengthening and curling effects.
The brush stays the same, with the bristles being a smudge longer. I am happy to see it again as it worked well for me in the original mascara.
After about more than a week of use, I can see that my lashes are stronger at the root but am not sure if it is longer yet. I enjoy the original Xtension Plus, no doubt I will like this new one even more when it takes care of my lashes in the process!
Retails $14.95 (9ml), the mascara is paraben and perfume free, safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers (same goes for the next two products as well).
There is a new Eyebrow pen in town.
What I like most about it is its slanted felt tip which makes depositing colour on the brows very easy and fast. Applied with small strokes, the pen gives off a natural look of the brows which even a newbie like me could do.
It dries quickly and stays on well till the end of the day with no smudging/ fading. Since the edges on the tip are sharp, I just need to work on shaping the brows with it. But I know we will be good friends for a good long while.
Available in Universal Light and Universal Dark (my shade), the Eyebrow pen is $13.95 (1.4ml).
Lastly, there are 2 new shades added to the 2-in-1 Retractable eyeliner line, namely Azurite (blue, pictured) and Purpurite (purple).
Automatic liners (with the sponge tip on the other end for smoky eyes, a sharpening tool included too) with pretty colours and 12 hour hold, plus being waterproof. Don’t mind if I do!
These are $10.95 each, available in now 6 colours in total.
– Left: Eyebrow pen in Universal Dark
– Right: 2-in-1 Retractable eyeliner in Azurite – lined and smudged right after applied.
I would suggest letting the liner set lightly before smudging for good colour payoff and staying power.
Look for these new products in stores (or on Marcelle website) starting next month.
For Canadians, shipping is free (no minimum). For the US, shipping is free with $50 orders. And you earn reward points with your order(s).
I am watching a sale to get a backup of the Eyebrow pen so I can practice more 🙂 Stay tuned for a look tomorrow.
