Canadian Beauty Sarah Richardson Announced as the Face of Marcelle’s New Revival+ Skin Care

Marcelle has announced the face of their new Revival+ skin care line: Canadian designer and TV personality Sarah Richardson! Her Canadian spirit, style and natural face exemplify the range of Marcelle’s anti-aging products. For Sarah, every day is an opportunity for renewal – in her work and personal life as well as in her beauty routine.

The new Marcelle Revival+ line aims to renew skin’s vitality and youthful radiance. Combining several ultra-performing ingredients with highly redensifying effects, such as Chicory Root Extract, the line was specifically created to activate skin renewal and help recover density, firmness and youthful radiance. The Chicory Root Extract is an extract that stimulates skin renewal by restoring the cutaneous barrier function for a visibly firmer and more radiant appearance.

With continued use, skin is revived, replenished and visibly glowing with renewed vitality and youth. Skin tone is more even, the complexion more luminous!

 

Step 1: Marcelle Revival+ Anti-Aging Redensifying 360° Serum

A true rejuvenating, redensifying 360° powerful cocktail, this ultra-performing serum helps improve skin’s overall appearance. It quickly recovers a fresher, more luminous and youthful look. Thanks to the marjoram extract, the Revival+ serum, when used with the Revival+ creams, boosts their efficacy significantly.

Benefits:

  • Provides an anti-dark spots effect
  • Activates skin renewal
  • Evens out and enhances the complexion
  • Hydrates and leaves skin smooth and supple
  • Helps redefine facial contours

 

Step 2: Marcelle Revival+ Anti-Aging Smoothing Eye Contour

The ideal eye contour care for a rested, youthful and brighter look.

Benefits:

  • Helps reduce puffiness and dark circles
  • Provides an immediate smoothing effect around the eyes for a firmer appearance
  • Ensures hydration, comfort and suppleness
  • Can also be used on the lip contour to smooth vertical wrinkles

 

 

 

Step 3 (Day): Marcelle Revival+ Anti-Aging Day Cream

Redensifying, moisturizing, smoothing day cream. Choose from either a dry skin or SPF 15 formula.

Benefits:

  • Allows skin to restore density, elasticity and glow
  • Helps redefine contours
  • Hydrates and leaves skin smooth and supple

 

Step 3 (Night): Marcelle Revival+ Anti-Aging Night Cream

Redensifying, detoxifying and restoring night cream.

Essentials Every Beauty Lover Needs for Festival Season

Festival season is officially in full swing! If you’re a beauty lover planning a getaway to your favourite music retreat, there are a few essentials you’ll want to pack in your bag. Our Beauty Advisors have hand-picked the best products to help you feel fresh and fabulous, even while you’re ‘roughing it’ to see your favourite bands.

 

John Frieda Luxurious Volume – Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo

Luxuriously long showers won’t necessarily be an option, but you can still keep your hair looking fresh in between washes. This dry shampoo from John Frieda will help to absorb oil and turn lackluster locks into salon-caliber, natural looking volume! Our Beauty Advisors recommend lifting hair in sections, then spraying at the roots in short, quick bursts. Use fingers to blend the fine powder into the hair.

 

 

Klorane Biodegradable Make-up Remover Wipes

Swap out your cotton pads and liquid makeup remover for something easier: make-up remover wipes. These wipes from Klorane require no rinsing, making them the ideal choice for festivals where running water isn’t close by. Plus, they’re biodegradable: perfect for your outdoor adventures!

 

Marcelle City Tinted Cream SPF 25

It’s best to avoid thick, cakey foundations on festival trips. Instead, opt for something with natural-looking coverage that will feel more comfortable on skin throughout the day. Marcelle’s new City Tinted Cream is lightweight with just a hint of correcting colour. Plus, it has the benefit of SPF to protect skin against UVB rays throughout the day.

 

 

Biotherm Deo Pure Invisible 48 Hour Antiperspirant Spray

Feeling fresh and clean isn’t something usually associated with festival season, thanks to dusty grounds and infrequent showers. Keep a bottle of this antiperspirant spray on hand for a quick burst of floral freshness that lasts 48 hours! Don’t worry about white marks or yellow stains, the formula is invisible.

 

 

Colorista Semi-Permanent Colour

Before you take off on your festival trip, why not up your hair game? Colorista’s new Semi-Permanent Colour washes out in 4-10 shampoos, making it a fun, temporary choice for your getaway. There are 7 shades for bleached or light blonde hair, and 4 shades for brunettes who don’t want to bleach. Go all out or flirt with colour by customizing your look!

 

MaskerAide All Eyes on Me Hydrating Eye Gels

Long nights at concerts mean mornings will be a bit tough. Take just a few minutes to give your tired eyes some TLC by applying MaskerAide’s Eye Gels under your eyes. The gels are packed with super hydrating, brightening and firming ingredients to help soothe, de-puff and diminish the look of dark circles.

 

Mineral Fusion 3-in-1 Colour Stick

Keep your makeup stash to a minimum by choosing products that do double (or in this case, triple) duty! Our Beauty Advisors recommend taking along Mineral Fusion’s 3-in-1 Colour Stick, to add some colour to cheeks, eyes and lips. The lightweight formula will add a subtle shimmer and pretty glow to any complexion, no brush necessary.

 

 

L’Oreal Infallible Paints Eyeshadow

For a fun splash of colour that will last all day, make sure L’Oreal’s brand new Infallible Paints Eyeshadow is in your bag. No makeup brushes are needed for application: our Beauty Advisors suggest using the included applicator or your fingers to apply the cream shadow. Feeling adventurous? Get creative and combine multiple colours, or keep it simple with just a swipe of colour. Once it’s dry, the shadow won’t smudge all day.

 

 

Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Big Shot Waterproof Mascara

Waterproof mascara is a must. Whether sun or rain is in the forecast, it’s best to have a mascara you can trust won’t melt or run. This new fully loaded volume mascara from Maybelline comes in a waterproof formula that will boost your lashes, while defying the elements.

 

 

Mineral Fusion Hydration Mist

Long days outside in the sun may leave your skin feeling dry and dehydrated. Keep a bottle of this hydration mist close by for a quick spritz throughout the day to refresh the skin. Chamomile, white tea, burdock root and sea kelp will soothe and nourish while defending the skin against free radical damage.

Tutorial: Chic Bare-Faced Makeup Look with Red Lips

One of the hottest makeup trends to grace the runways for Spring/Summer 2017 just happens to also be one that’s super easy to re-create at home! The trend features red lips on an otherwise bare face: a simple, polished style. In this tutorial, our Beauty Advisor Hannah is taking on the runway look using Marcelle Cosmetics, showing you how to even out skintone and brighten the eyes for a natural bare-faced glow. The look isn’t complete without a swipe of chic red lipstick, though, and Hannah has picked out the perfect shade and texture for a bold, sophisticated finish. Watch the video for details!

Festival Season Beauty Essentials

Festival-Season-Beauty-Essentials_Cat

 

The season of music festivals is upon us! If you’ve managed to snag tickets and are now in the process of planning your outfits, hair and makeup, our Beauty Advisors have some tips for what to bring – aside from floral crowns, combat boots and crochet crop tops.

 

conair brush

 

The Conair Infiniti Pro Ultimate Brush

Access to electricity may not be widely available during the festival, so having wireless hair tools is key. The wireless battery-operated Conair Infiniti Pro Ultimate Brush tames static and frizzy hair using ion technology, so you can keep fly-aways at bay.

 

 

fekkai

 

The Fekkai Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo

Let’s be honest, access to showers at festivals is a luxury. Use Fekkai’s Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo to skip a wash and give your hair an instant refresh. The dry shampoo will absorb dirt and oil so your hair will look and smell freshly done!

 

 

 

marcelle mascara

 

The Marcelle Waterproofing Mascara Topcoat

With back-to-back concerts and parties, your makeup will be put to the test. To avoid the dreaded melting mascara, swipe Marcelle’s Waterproofing Mascara Topcoat over your favourite regular mascara once dry.

 

 

 

laroche

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur – SPF 24

A lightweight coverage BB cream is the best way to give your face natural looking coverage that won’t get cakey and melt in the sun. La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar BB Blur not only gives light coverage, but it also minimizes excess shine and offers SPF 24 to protect your face from the sun throughout the day.

 

 

 

vichy

 

The Vichy Idéal Soleil XL Sunscreen Cream – SPF 60

Spending all day under the hot sun with little to no shade means you’ll need to re-apply sunscreen every couple hours to stay protected. Vichy’s Idéal Soleil XL Sunscreen Cream has a fast-drying non-sticky texture that can be applied on face and body, offering both UVA and UVB protection.

 

 

e.l.f.

 

The e.l.f. Studio Lip Balm SPF 15

Don’t forget to protect your lips with SPF too.  A tinted lip balm with SPF, like e.l.f.’s Studio Lip Balm will give your lips a flush of natural-looking colour, while also soothing and protecting them from harmful sun rays.

 

 

 

cargo

The Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Bronzer

You’ll look like a bronzed festival goddess all day long with Cargo’s Swimmables Water Resistant Bronzer. The longwearing formula withstands perspiration, so you can rock a healthy summer glow without having to fuss with re-application throughout the day.

 

 

YB refresh

 

The Youngblood Minerals in the Mist – Refresh

Long days with little sleep and lots of sun mean your skin will likely be begging for a pick-me-up. Give your face a quick spritz of Youngblood’s Minerals in the Mist Refresh to soothe tired skin and give a refreshing boost of moisture to your face.

 

 

 

bioderma wipesThe Bioderma Sensibio H2O Wipes

These makeup wipes from Bioderma are non-rinse: perfect for quickly wiping off makeup & cleansing skin after a long festival day, especially when you don’t have easy access to running water.
