Marcelle CC Cream Golden Glow review

The Marcelle CC Cream SPF 35 in Golden Glow ($30CDN, 30ml) is infused with 24K Gold. Infused with Gold! It promises a lightweight texture in a tinted cream format which diminishes dark spots and can be used as a moisturizer, tinted corrector, makeup base or sunscreen. 


Color and Coverage
One full pump gives me light coverage and another layer built up to a good medium but I still see some of my darker moles showing through. My skin tone is evened with one pump's worth. It's supposed to offer complete coverage, but after a second layer, I didn't think putting more on would feel comfortable. Since it's 'infused with gold' the finish is luminous and there are super super micro gold shimmers in the fluid. You can almost see them up close but from a regular distance, there is no real sparkle aside from a general luminosity. In fact my colleague complimented me on my skin when I was using this. I associated that with the luminosity it gave.

The color suits my winter NC20-25 skin though it's slightly dark and slightly more yellow (if we had to be picky) but not much different than my current skin shade. I might be able to bring it into early summer with me. In general this shade suits me well if I only use one pump. It did not oxidize.

Application
I used the RT sponge and it went on fine. This product is very fluid and you won't need to change how you'd apply your foundations. You can buff it in with a brush but application with fingers gave the best results in terms of coverage.

Wear
From the get go, you can tell this has a dewy finish. It sets quite well and nothing really transfered when I blotted my face with a tissue once it had set. The product is supposed to control oil. After 6 hours, I'm pretty shiny on my forehead and some of it has broken down. This is pretty regular and 6 hours is pretty good. I started getting shiny around hour 4. My cheeks were still ok in the 6th hour but they were starting to transfer when I dabbed them with my fingers (and when it transfers, you get shimmers on your fingers btw).

The cream is also supposed to repair dry damaged skin. From the way it wore, I can see dry skinned people loving the hydration but oily and combination individuals may want to skip this.

Overall
I like that the color matches well and that application is no-fuss. I like that there's SPF 35 and I don't even mind the luminous finish too much but I don't like how shiny my forehead got during the course of the day. Powdering  mostly eliminated this issue and is my preferred way to set. Though the foundation is very lightweight, as the day progressed and my oils mixed in, and I wanted to wash it off. This product could be used as a base under another foundation or as a tinted moisturizer. I would suggest this only for people with dry skin, who like a luminous finish but with powder even combo girls could enjoy this too.
