being awarded for their cosmetics at the prestigious the 2014 ELLE
CANADA / ELLE QUÉBEC Beauty Grand Prix, and with summer just around the
corner; I was quite excited to test out these award winning products.
Best bronzer under $30, Best Lip gloss under $20, and Best tinted Cream
(BB, CC) under $22 these Marcelle® and Annabelle® products are the
perfect go-to forSpring/Summer weather! When the weather hits the double
digits, and the sun is high the last you want is to be sporting is
heavy makeup. With these three products you really don’t need much else. For
me, during summer, or when I’m traveling I like to keep my makeup at
light as possible. I will admit though I do toss on some waterproof
mascara, with blonde eyelashes and brown hair I kind of look a little funny without it.
is designed to blur imperfections, brighten, and moisturize the skin
while also providing moderate to light coverage. I love how this product
saves you time and energy because it’s less products you need to apply
in the morning.

Size. I love that the bronzer is massive. I think this is so important
for applying the product to your brush. When you have a small case it
can be difficult to get all the bronzer onto your brush evenly, and this
resulting in some streaky application.
just enough to give you a glow, but subtle enough that it doesn’t look
like your face is dirty. I love using bronzer for contour, especially
during the summer. I apply it along my hairline, under my cheekbones
(and glided outwards back to hairline), and then one the two sides on my
nose, and jawline.
texture. This product feels great against the skin, and with all the
sunscreen and everything else you’re putting on your face it’s nice to
have something soft because you’re probably going to use it anyway.
for any occasion. I love that there’s no worry that you’ve over done it
with this shade. It’s great for the beach as much as it is great for an
event. It’s the perfect go-to to have in your purse at all times for the summer months.
Overall I really liked the products. I’ve used a lot of different BB Creams and there’s a lot of similar products out there so it can be very overwhelming. I liked this BB Cream because it wasn’t super greasy, and it went on with a great matte finish. The coverage is light to medium, so you might still need a little something to cover up breakouts, but it’s perfect for summer when you don’t want to wear a lot of makeup. The star of these products has to be the bronzer I love love love it! And at this price point it’s amazing!!
