Marcelle’s New Age Anti-Wrinkle Make-up Foundation is targeted towards the 35+ crowd, but after passing a recent bday and entering that next age bracket, I figured….it doesn’t hurt to be pro-active, right? :)
I’ve shied away from drugstore brand foundations in the past while, as I’m a firm believer on it being ok to splurge on quality foundation and concealer products (and of course, I’ve needed the more reliable stuff for my kit!). Certainly, drugstore make-up brands have come a long way and today you can get quality products at affordable prices. Marcelle is one of those lines that balances quality and value really well, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised by their latest foundation.
Marcelle’s Anti-Wrinkle Make-up Foundation contains Dermaxyl (an anti-aging agent known to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles) and other key ingredients that help to improve the skin’s radiance. It’s definitely an easy-to-use foundation, as it blends easily and absorbs quickly into the skin. I’d recommend it more for women with healthy skin that just needs that quick pick-me-up, as it provides light to moderate coverage. Women that usually need more coverage (for blemishes, uneven skin tones) will want to try something other than this formula.
I’ve been using the foundation for about a month, but (unfortunately!) can’t see a visibile difference in it minimizing my own fine lines (‘of experience’). I do like how the lightweight formula doesn’t cake into my fine lines and crepey undereye area – anything that doesn’t make these areas more noticeable is an immediate winner in my book!
The one shortage of this foundation is the limited range of six skin tones. I do hope they expand the choice of skin tones, as Marcelle products seem to work great with all skin types (including sensitive skin).
Overall, a good foundation, but the Anti-Wrinkle part? Jury’s still out on that one (and hopefully the prominent wrinkles will stay out with it!)….
