Marcelle Rouge Xpression Lipstick in Jezebel

Or more appropriately titled, "in which I finally become Canadian."


Sort of. The running joke among my beloved beauty blogger friends (inexplicably, many of whom are Canadian) is that I am already half one, and what more do I need than some of Canada's drugstore best to push me over the edge, or um, leap from the Niagara Falls and emerge the other side? I've heard great things about Marcelle, and now that I've tried it, I'm insanely jealous. This is their idea of a drugstore product?


Marcelle Rouge Xpression Lipstick in Jezebel was gifted to me by my dear friend Arianne of Glitter Geek when she visited New York a couple of weeks ago. Arianne knows me and my fondness for lilacs well, but what she didn't tell me was how luxurious the lipstick feels. It glides like smooth balm on the lips but it's super pigmented and the color stays in place. 


What's better: there was no trace of the plastic smell that I've come to associate with drugstore lipsticks. If I had to compare it, I'd say it's similar to Suqqu Creamy Glow Lipsticks, minus the rush of owning a luxury product. 


At only $12 apiece, the Marcelle Rouge Xpression Lipsticks offer you a rarity in beauty shopping: you don't have to think too hard about buying and it turns out to be such a worthy purchase. Arianne has swatched most of the Marcelle Rouge Xpression line, divided into neutrals and brights. In case you're interested in ordering, Marcelle is available to the US via their online store here.

  3. Marcelle's lipsticks are amazing! They are so pigmented and creamy! You honestly can't go wrong with any of their lipsticks. And I totally agree that they don't have a plasticky smell to them at all. Glad you like it!

  7. Umm I should be kicked. I'm Canadian and have yet to try a Marcelle lipstick. Sort of loony since I've loved everything else of theirs I've tried!

  10. I think you're more than half Canadian :P like, at least 3/4..
    Also, it's official: you look stunning in every lip colour ever. Marcelle is one of my favourite brands, because they do a range of things well, from foundation to skincare! If you're ever in Canada you must haul ;)
