Powder -Lancome - Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup

It really is "the best" simply put. Yes, it's $42, but I just spent probably over $150 trying to find a drugstore match (Maybelline, Revlon, L'Oréal, Cover Girl, Neutrogena, Milani, Nyx, etc) over the past several months and while some were decent, Lancôme knocks them all out by a long run. You get what you pay for -- the sponge and powder puff are high quality and the powder is very very finely milled, creamy, and easily buildable without looking caked on or powdery. So smooth and doesn't settle into fine lines at all. Doesn't break me out. Looks like real skin but even toned and glowy. They have a wide range of shades with various undertones. My only complaint with this and all Lancome products is the fragrance. It's their "signature" fragrance for years and since the company is French, it does smell very perfumed. There are many who love the scent and many who could do without. I don't mind it that much, but I wish they made a fragrance free. Nonetheless, one compact lasts quite a while. My last one lasted almost a year! I don't mind spending $42 a year for flawless skin.



Eyeliner -Lancome - Grandiôse Liner

This is my first time to write a review, but after purchasing Lancome's Grandiose, I felt I must. I am a longtime fan of Art Liner, so I assumed the new product would reflect the same high quality. Wrong! The eyeliner product dried up almost immediately, even after my repeated shaking. I understand the concept of "matte," but this is "dried up and useless." Do not purchase unless you like throwing money away.


Eye Shadow -Lancome - Hypnôse Palette Matte Eyeshadow Palette - 108 Beige Brulee

I'm still trying to figure out if I love it or not but so far I like it a lot. To be honest, I don't have the full size compact but the gift sample, which has a total of 2g of product. Considering that the full size compact has a total of 4g, which means less than 1g for each shade, and a $110 price tag, I didn't want to spend so much money and risk to be disappointed . My last big let down was with EL Color Envy 5-Eyeshadow Palette in 02 Ivory, which looked amazing, swatched amazing, but once on my lids it had poor pigmentation and very poor lasting power making the use of a good primer and concealer a mandatory. And too much work for every morning. This palette has a very similar colour combination to the EL one and for this reason I keep the little case in my purse and I use it to retouch the EL eye makeup during the day when, despite all the primer, has faded out.

I have also used it on its own and it performed quite well. With primer underneath it works even better. As the name suggests, a part of the white-pink highlighter, all colours are matte, or almost.
The consistency is like silk powder, gorgeous to touch and to blend out.
The name Beige Brûlée is quite misleading because more than burned beiges it leans more on grey-taupes and pinks and this is exactly why I like it so much. In a world full of warm, rusty, peachy, golden, bronzey nude palettes it is so hard to find good neutral and cool nude options.

There are two versions of the case with different layout of the shades.. The one sold in Europe and Asia has larger pans of the lighter colours, which makes it really convenient for me because they are the ones I use the most, and has 3 quite good quality brushes. The one sold in the US has a larger pan for the dark brown and is convenient for people who use that colour more for smokey eyes look or as eyeliner.

Colour description (EU-Asia/USA layout):
Left side/central left: Pale taupe with grey undertone, or greige, on my lids this turns quite grey, which I love because it neutralizes the reddish of my lids and brings out the green of my hazel iris.
Right side/top: Ivory white with a pink undertone and almost imperceptible pearlescence. It can be used as highlighter but it works quite well also as base although it is not highly pigmented.
Top in the middle/bottom: Chocolate brown, if applied directly to my lids it can be a bit too warm but blended on all the other colours it neutralizes in a grey brown with almost violet hinges. I don't like it as eyeliner but it is perfect in the crease or, even better, for the V outline.
Central in the middle/central in the middle: Taupe beige, this is very neutral/cool, it works amazing to sculpt the eye sockets in the crease but it also looks gorgeous on the lid.
Bottom in the middle/central right: Sparkly pink white; given my mature skin I try to avoid this kind of texture but a tiny bit of it mixed with one of the other colours makes them look a bit more shiny. On its own on young skin I think that it would make every eye colour pop.

I would love to have the full size compact, especially the version with the nice brushes, but the price it too high for only 4g of product. I may buy it if I find a really good deal.

Liquid -Lancome - Absolue BX foundation

I have dry rosacea prone skin. After trying so many brands I found this a few years ago. Nothing else seems to compare. I wear a good moisturizer and find this foundation moisturizing enough to help. It does not settle into lines and lasts hours. The color did not turn orange or get cakey. At least once a week I receive a compliment on my skin. I am not a sponge applicator or brush user (heaven forbid) because of sensitive skin. Finger application works just well and spreads evenly. Pearl 140N matches me perfectly.


Skincare - Body -Lancome - Savon Fraichelle Bath & Shower Gel

An instant HG for me! I got a deluxe sample in a GWP a few years ago and I absolutely love the scent. However, I totally understand why some people don't like it. It definitely has more of a masculine scent, kind of like the Irish Spring shower gel, IMO. If you're not a fan of fresh green scents, or if you prefer feminine or floral scents, you probably won't like this at all. The gel itself is thick and lathers up well yet rinses clean. I wouldn't call it moisturizing, so I only use it in the summertime when I don't need any extra moisture on my skin.
