Whilst I was in New York recently I had the opportunity to check out the brand new Birchbox Store which is literally a beauty lover’s paradise. I picked up the Marcelle BB Roll-On Concealer because I’d never come across this brand before and I am obsessed with finding the perfect under-eye concealer. I have been trying it out this week and here are my thoughts.
So the Marcelle BB Roll-On Concealer promises to cover blemishes and under-eye circles, lift and tone the skin, calm redness, add hydration and protect from environmental damage. AND it brightens..that is truly one of my favourite words. Sounds amazing doesn’t it?!?
And you know what? I used it yesterday for the first time and I think it is pretty damn gorgeous! It has a beautiful texture that is really smooth and creamy, the roller ball delivery system makes it super cool as it is applied and I absolutely love how it feels on my skin. It is super hydrating and my eye area it stayed hydrated which means that fine lines stayed less visible. Also the coverage really lasts on my skin too.
The Marcelle BB Roll-On Concealer comes in 2 shades. I have Light to Medium and there’s also Medium to Dark.

You can see the lovely creamy texture – it feels really good. I just applied it straight from the pen like this and then blended it out with my fingertips.
The roller ball makes it feel really cooling and it feels like a treatment and makeup in one – which is what a BB should be!! I took some before and after shots so you can see its effect.
Marcelle BB Roll-On Concealer Before & After Photos
I love it!! It gives the skin a beautiful glow, balances out any unevenness, plumps it up and really brightens. Can you see? I think this is my new fave! The above photos are with foundation but I am wearing it alone today and it really has pepped up my skin. It is also brilliant for covering redness around the nose making it perfect for minimal makeup days.
US readers can purchase this at Birchbox.com but I am afraid it isn’t available in the UK just yet. Here’s hoping Birchbox UK get on board with Marcelle. I bought this for $21 which I think is pretty good value. I’ll definitely pick it up again.
