prolash_1

There is a new version of Marcelle’s best selling Xtension Plus Mascara (winner of the 2013 Grand Prix ELLE) available that contains a special conditioner for your lashes which promotes growth, creating visibly longer and thicker lashes. The Xtension Plus Mascara + ProLash ($14.95 CAD) contains peptides and vitamins which stimulate the follicles and make the hair grow faster and stronger, while preventing breakage.

  • Extremely lengthening formula with added vitamins and peptides
  • Prevents breakage, visibly enhances growth
  • Notice changes within 2 weeks (In a clinical study over a period of 2 weeks.)
  • Specially shaped dual-sided brush
  • No clumping or flaking
  • Safe for contact lens wearers and sensitive eyes

The brush works as a built in lash brush so lashes achieve great separation and length with good volume. Swatches are with no combing but for me personally I still would use a lash comb when necessary to make sure there is no clumping whatsoever. I found this to be quite the transformative mascara and the added care ingredients are an amazing added bonus.

Montreal, January 24, 2014. – The Canadian Dermatology Association is a known and trustworthy source of information when it comes to skin health.

Marcelle Velvety Eye Shadow + Primer in Primer Rose

It is in a rectangular tube with a doe foot applicator. The formula has a really lovely thin texture that feels delightful on the lids. Almost cooling. It has a super fine shimmer which really brightens and illuminates the eye area. It does not offer much in the way of coverage though.

The shade Primer Rose is a gorgeous neutral. For some reason all my photos look pure beige but there is a subtle rose nuance to the colour.
