Marcelle Cosmetics Hot Items!


Product Info:
Wet & Dry Eyeshadow Duo - Orchid
The perfect colour combo to make your eyes shine with subtle, sultry appeal.
Enjoy a dynamic duo of eye shadows that are versatile enough to create a light and natural look or a more sophisticated and sultry makeup. Applied dry, its silky, soft powder glides over lids for a longwearing dusting of colour.
Add a drop of water and watch it transform into a creamy, vibrant coloured paste. Its incredibly fine colour pigments are treated with silicone to dissolve immediately when in contact with water. Once dry, the eye shadow returns to its initial shape without hardening.

The Review: I personally loved the soft shades of pink and purple in the eyeshadow combination. I loved how smooth they glided on my lids, I actually prefer this combination wet I loved that look!


Prodcust Info:
VOLUME PRECISION, the longwearing mascara by Marcelle ensures buildable volume and definition like you’ve never experienced before.

Its ultra-flexible polymer brush with microchambers seizes lashes one by one, without clumps. The bristles come in variable lengths and are cleverly aligned to ensure clean, precise definition.
Enriched with oil olive and rice brand wax, the revitalizing lightweight gel formula provides maximal volume without any heavy feeling.

The Review: I must say this mascara is defenitlty light weight. If you are looking for more of a natrual coverage without clumps this mascara is for you. I call it an "everyday wear" mascara!


Product Info:

Moisturizing and plumping effects unite in Marcelle’s new Vita-Lip Plumping Gloss. The ideal treat for your lips, it combines a delicious glaze of colour with a revitalizing cocktail of active ingredients.

The sheer, non sticky formula leaves your lips looking lusciously full, youthful and hydrated.

The Review:
If you are looking for plumping action this is it! this has a non sticky residue and it comes in a variety of colors a must have in any beauty bag!

My Review of Good Hair!



So I saw the movie, I must say it opened my eyes a bit more to how lost as a race we are. Some of us are sooo ignorant it's quite disgusting actually. Black women are soo insecure it soo sad and to think this hair business that is 9 billion dollar business is solely based on our own insecurities as black females. People are cashing in all over the world on our insecurities. Some of us don't like ourselves and to think that most people will relax or put extensions for the sole purpose of not feeling pretty enough or not "fitting in" to the western society of beauty. God forbid if we show our "real" selves what will the world think? Not to mention the health concerns on applying sodium peroxide(relaxer) to your hair the long term effects that can cause.

This industry was created for us to fit in(creator Madam C.J Walker), and sorry news flash we are black, no matter how many wigs or weaves or perms we get you are black that's all they will ever see. Personally I accept my self fully as a black female from my skin to my nose, lips, round rear, large hips and all, but I always thought to myself why not my hair? Now I'm down for changing up my do cause I want a new look but if we are doing it for the sole purpose of "I feel prettier with some girls hair from India on my head, or straight relaxed hair then my own is a PROBLEM!" Now I am not perfect I will probably rock a weave again at some point in my life change is good, but not because I feel prettier or more feminine!

Anyhow ladies and gents this is just my 2 cents nothing to take to heart just my random thoughts. Go check it out for yourselves and gather your own opinion!

If you saw the movie or have an opinion leave a comment!
