REVIEW: Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara

In  a past Glossybox, I received a lovely full sized Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara. I have just got around to try it recently as I finished off a Bad Gal Lash by Benefit. I had never tried any mascaras by Marcelle before- it is not one of my usual brands that I am drawn toward, but I ended up loving their bb cream (which I also got a sample of in my Glossybox). I am very impressed with this mascara!
Marcelle's Xtension Plus has a plastic applicator with very thin and short bristles- usually I dislike applicators like this because I find that they make lashes look thin and spidery. However, this is not the case with Xtension Plus! It makes my lashes very thick and long, I love the volume it provides! It is a perfect jet black, and it doesn't smudge throughout the day like stila's Forever Your Curl


As you can see, my lashes on the left are without any mascara, and on the right I am wearing Xtension Plus. I highly recommend this mascara to anyone who is looking for a fairly priced volumizing and lengthening mascara that isn't overly dramatic. I would definitely repurchase this in the future!

    1. yes it is a Canadian brand so I doubt you'd have in over the US!

  11. Alrighty, now I will definitely take this mascara out of my "samples" box and give it a go! I keep going back to my Lancome babies so maybe this Marcelle one might be a more inexpensive alternative? You have no idea how excited I am to read your post on the Topbox blog!

  13. Wow I wasn't expecting such great lashes from that little brush! Looks great on you :)

  14. I've never heard of this brand to be honest and I'm usually not a fan of the small brushes either because they don't usually do the trick for me but this one looks like it really gave you some volume. Nice review! :)

    xoxo,

    1. its the absolute truth! mascara really helps me out a lot- without it I wouldn't look nearly as good :P

  16. Holy! I am just like you and I am defiantely not drawn toward the Marcelle section of Shoppers or Walmart...it may as well not exist to me! Its great that they have been branching out with beauty boxes because it seems that a lot of people are having good experiences with them after being given the chance to try them!

    Impressive mascara! Might be worth a try?

  20. Amazing eye lashes girly! I love this mascara too I have been using it since we received it in Glossy and really love the look it gives.. I was skeptical on the brush too but it really came through :)

  21. you have the most amazing lashes!! i love it!

  22. I get eyelash extensions done so I can have that effect every day. I go to Danity Lash here in Calgary and they are awesome.
    But wow that mascara seems to work quite well, but I definately prefer the more fuller look you get from eyelash extensions.
