Cleansers -Lancome -Mousse Radiance

This has been renamed Mousse Eclat, but it is the same product. This is a self foaming water (when you pump it turns into a foam) that is ideal for normal to combination or oily skin types. This really cleanses the skin well and doesn't leave a trace of any makeup or impurities. I like this format in many other skincare lines for a cleanser, and this one is no exception. It feels lightweight and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean. It's expensive, but if you are willing to spend the money, go for it!



Liquid -Lancome -Teint Idole Ultra Liquid 24h Longwear SPF 15 Foundation

I tried it at Sephora and purchased the 215 Buff N shade although I thought it was too light when I used it at home (of course, I could never buy the right shade by going to the counters). My first liquid foundation ever and I'm disappointed, first of all, although they claimed that it's oil-free, it doesn't feel that way, it's really not oily-skin-friendly. The coveage is alright, medium like it states, not the best product for those like me with acne and acne scars. I don't know what it's talking about when it says 24-hour wear and transfer-resistant, nope just nope, didn't happen, maybe my oily skin is the culprit again. In addition, I apply the foundation with a dry sponge because with a brush it leaves streaks of makeup, sponge alleviates the problem, but it still feels kind of cakey, as if the foundation stays on top of your skin and doesn't really blend in...you know what I mean? Maybe this is common with liquid foundation.

Wait a minute ops, I just saw on the package that you're supposed to shake well before each use, ops, I don't think I ever did that, maybe this is why this isn't a magical product? Take my words above with a grain of salt guys.

Did I say I love the packaging though? Although it's super difficult to get the last bit of it out, and yes I tried my best because this is $47, my wallet is crying. OH AND, because of the pretty frosted glass container it comes in, I was shocked to find out that one day it suddenly barely pumped anything out anymore, like what? From the outside it looked as if I still had a whole container! So yeah be aware of that.


Mascara -Lancome -Hypnose Doll Eyes Waterproof

This is one of Lisa Eldridge's favourite mascaras. It does give you really thick doll lashes but i personally found the formula way too thick and clumpy, it also dries very fast after 1 month. Some days it will apply really nice, some days it will clumpy up really bad- this also happens with Hynose waterproof but with Hynose i can control the clumpiness with the brush. The brush is really nice as it fans out every lash but the thick formula clumps up everything. I just wish they made this formula thinner and also a little wetter.


Fragrances -Lancome -La Vie Est Belle

Really? Someone who smokes a pack a day complaining about the smell of someone's perfume? The irony. There are 20 cigarettes in a pack and only 24 hours in a day...how is it even possible that the reviewer had time to watch a 2.5 hour movie (Avengers) between smoke breaks? Did she forego sleeping that day?

Also, what a lack of character to lie and tell the poor girl you loved it. That is che tack-ay. I have a brilliant suggestion for the previous reviewer. Instead of lying to some young woman who doused herself in the smell of french pastry and patchouli (what LVEB smells like), why not do what all of the people who are allergic to the smell of a person who smokes a pack a day have to do and simply MOVE.

Look, I don't normally rag on people who smoke. I don't really care, however I cannot stand when people in glass houses throw cruel stones. Even if I'm not the target for those stones, I will lob a few back.

LVEB is fine. I don't wear it often because it's so pervasive right now, and I don't want to smell like everyone and their mother. It's created by Dominique Ropion and Olivier Polge, has won countless industry awards, and has been the number one fragrance in France for a while now. Despite the previous reviewer's opinion, it's a decent perfume. As I mentioned it is the classic sweet gourmand comfort smell of a french boulangerie with an underpinning of patchouli. Think delicate layers of vanilla puff pastry drizzled with a pear praline sugar glaze. Basically, it's an adult sophisticate's take on Aquolina's Pink Sugar. It does last well (thank patchouli) and it is a rather safe scent (children love it).

I can assure all of you out there that there are worse smells....ahem.

Now let's try to keep it civil from here on out and simply review perfume.


Self Tanners -Lancome -Flash Bronzer Tinted Self-Tanning Leg Gel with Pure Vitamin E

I got 2 of these in the GWP size from the lovely Lancome counter lady and they're pretty good!

GOOD POINTS:
The gel consistency is lovely and it goes on REALLY easily - I slathered it on in a pretty slap-dash way and it still developed evenly.
The guide colour gives you a nice glow and it's not muddy.
Like all tanners, it does smell BUT the smell washes off and doesn't cling to the skin. I rinsed with just water and there was no lingering tanner scent.
It doesn't stain your hands! I applied with my bare hands then washed it off with soap and water and my hands did not turn orange!

NOT SO GOOD POINTS:
The colour was a bit light and yellowy for me. I have very pale skin so fake tan can make me look jaundiced. For this reason I wouldn't buy the full size product as I think Xen tan gives a better brown colour to my milk-bottle legs. If the Lancome leg gel came in a slightly darker / browner colour I would switch straight away.
