Marcelle – Xtension Plus Mascada Review & Swatch

Official Website (Somehow I can only see the French description…)

I received this mascara in my April GlossyBox. As I said above, I can only see the French description at their website, but basically what this does is lengthen your lash without clamps and the brush & formula has bending effect to curl your lashes.

I don’t wan to keep telling you guys same thing over and over again, but it is super hard to find mascaras that keep my straight stiff Asian lashes curled. When I see a ingredient called “Isobutane” (commonly used in waterproof mascaras), I am confident that it’s gonna work for me. Other than that, no luck so far.

So, as good as this mascara sounds, I did not expect too much from it. Here is a picture of my demonstration.


I really like this mascara and how it applies to my eyelash. BUT! it does not keep my lashes curled. The formula is not too dry or wet and it does not clump easily. I think it’s just right. The formula is also very pigmented and has nice rich black colour. It seems that I can remove this mascara easily even with warm water.

This mascara also has nice brush with short plastic bristles.


Because there are many bristles, it really keeps the formula from clumping on my lashes.

I really want to like this mascara and I really believe this is a great mascara for those with naturally (or easily) curled lashes. However, it only keeps my lashes curled for about 10 minutes. So I won’t be purchasing this mascara in the future, but I gave it to my sister-in-law to try. Hopefully she will like it.


  • Rich black colour
  • No clump
  • Nice brush size
  • Affordable ($12.99) and easily available


  • Won’t work for stiff eyelashes
  • Comes off easily with water (can come off by tear)

My Final Rating: 3/5
