Mascara -Lancome - Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

A good mascara. Doesn't really curl my lashes, lifts and makes my already good lashes look like they have mascara on.. doesn't really elevate them to the next level.. impossible to remove. Gets the job done but not worth the price


Mascara -Lancome - Hypnose Drama

Ugh, this mascara is a nightmare from putting it on to taking it off. I grabbed a mini of this by mistake at Ulta (I was looking to try the regular Hynpnose, but was in a rush) and I am SO glad it was only a mini.

I HATE the brush for this. It's huge and very prickly and hurts my lash line. It reminds me of a Rimmel one I had a few years ago (and also hated). I think that one was called Rockin' Curves or something, so if you liked it, you might like this, because in my opinion it's basically the exact same mascara, only I think the curves on this brush are slightly less extreme than the Rimmel brush, and the Rimmel brush might have had a few more bristles.

Anyway...

This is a very wet formula, but it doesn't feel heavy. However, it seriously weighs down my lashes. One coat does very little for adding anything (length, volume, color), but two takes forever because if you try to add a second coat while the first isn't at least mostly dry, it does more nothing.

The big problem is that it takes about 5 million years to dry. I can put this on, get dressed, brush my hair, eat a yogurt, have some coffee, and it's STILL not dry. Not being dry = big black smudges everywhere.

When it does eventually dry, it's so stiff, but also weirdly feels tacky. It's like my lashes have been replaced with tiny, sap covered twigs. Not pleasant.

I've had issues with flakes from this stuff, too, starting about two hours after applying it.

Then there's trying to remove it. Ugh. I've tried oils, Take the Day Off, the Neutrogena eye makeup remover cream/gel stuff, micellar water, and cleansers. (I don't know if they make a waterproof version, but mine isn't.) As it comes off, it feels so grainy and usually takes a couple of lashes with it.

The ONLY pro for this is that--if I can keep it from going all over the place--it kinda makes my bottom lashes look ok-ish.

I'm so glad I didn't buy the full sized version, and I doubt I'll ever try the regular Hypnose if the formula is anything like this, because it's awful, at least for me and my lashes.

Lip Gloss -Lancome - Lip Lover

on 10/20/2017 6:43:00 AM

I have never used lip gloss before. Everyday I usually only wear lip balm containing SPF and I'm good to go. Sometimes, if I have important meeting or need a little bit color, I applied Revlon Colorburst Lipstick shade 035 Blush, kind of nude colour with a little simmer.
I have been curious about Lancome lip products. Actually I wanted to try Lancome Juicy Shaker, but there was a special sale so I decided to try Lancome Lip Lover. Beside, its review was very positive so I took the bet.
I bought shade 337 Lip Lover. Because I am not used to wearing something that really pigmented, I'm a bit uncomfortable wearing it during work, but I wear it when I'm hanging out with my friends.
My lips are very dry so I always apply some lip balm first. It does transfer, but the staying power is amazing. Even after I brushed my teeth, it was still there! I didn't realize it until I saw the pink stain on my towel (lol)
I want to try the coral shades next

Easiest brow pomade to use, last forever and gives you a beautiful brow that can be fluffed out! I have dark (black) hair and use the second lightest colour, I think 4 and its perfect! The darkest colour is eyeliner black so I would recommend the brown!

Disliked it a lot. Got it on sale for 15 euro and even that was to much. Its gunky and gummy textured, practically impossible to remove. Worst of all it doesnt look anything special. It doesnt harden so thats a good thing..


Liquid -Lancome - Teint Miracle

Finish - Dewy. Gives a very beautiful dewy and healthy glow. Also does a good job at covering pores to make your face seem flawless.

Coverage- Light-Medium. Buildable without getting cakey, but does not completely cover acne/scarring to be considered high coverage.

Staying Power- Average. I was a little less than impressed with the staying power which is why it is not quite HG-worthy for me, even though it has come pretty close. After about 4 hours, it starts to get oily and streaks a little.

Pros: did not break me out, has very beautiful packaging.

Overall: It's a decent foundation and I may repurchase if I can't find anything better, but I'm constantly on the look out for a foundation that can offer a beautiful finish and has amazing staying power.


Mascara -Lancome - Cils Booster XL

I received this as a sign up gift to IPSY so I can't speak to price. I have a few lash primers (this is the only one with CILS) and out of them this works the best. As in it doesn't overapply or get chunky. It just gives my lashes a nice coat and a little length. I have noticed my natural lashes seem to be getting longer? A little weird as my lashes closet to tear duct seem to be growing faster than the rest. I really like using a primer because I seem to hit my skin less with the black mascara wand. I pair this booster usually with it mate mascara. I coat my upper lashes once then go in and do my lower. Then a second coat following the same path. While the rest is drying I start with mascara on the first part I primed. I never have any issues with clumping or mixing of the products.

I have only tried the deluxe sample size of this from a code on Saks.com but after a couple of weeks' use, I am impressed! I love the Christmas tree shaped brush and did not experience any flaking or smudging. Flaking and the subsequent eye irritation it causes is the biggest reason I dislike mascaras, so I was pleased with the wearability of this one. It coats my lashes well in one or two coats, separates my lashes nicely, and stays on all day without leaving a crispy feeling on my lashes. Other than the foolish name and high price tag, I really like this one. Hopefully this will show up soon in a Sephora mascara collection as a sample with a certificate for a full size included.

This foundation was alright.
I bought the lightest shade and it was still too dark for me.
It looks very nice on the skin tho and I like the scent of it. Stayed on pretty well on my combination skin. The coverage was medium imo. I would recommend this foundation if you arent super pale and like a foundation with a super beautiful and natural finish.

I'm always hunting for the best foundation for my skin. I'm mid-sixties but look mid-forties (yes, really!). I battled acne most of my life and have it tamed to an occasional pimple, but I'm very reactive and if my skin doesn't like something I'm using, I break out. I went to Ulta this morning to see if they had something great but a little cheaper than Lancome, and specifically asked about a Tarte product, saying that I'm always looking for something better. The SA looked at me and said, "What you have on now is gorgeous." And I hadn't revealed what I had on today. So, yes, I purchased the Tarte Confidence Creamy Powder Foundation, mainly because it gets incredibly good reviews, but Lancome Teint Miracle stays very high on my "repurchase" list. Some reviewers have complained that it doesn't work for oily skin because it has a dewy finish, but it looks fabulous on my oily skin.

Mascara -Lancome - Definicils High Definition Mascara

I received a sample of this mascara.

I'm not a huge fan. The mascara does not hold curls well, and within 30 seconds of applying this, I can see them straightening out a bit, and the original curl is mostly undone.

However, it is very lengthening, and it does not smudge or flake on me.

Hate the name, love the mascara! The wand is a pretty standard Christmas tree type bristle brush, and the mascara is unscented. The wand isn't too big or too small, so application is quick and tidy. It fans outs and makes your lashes look incredibly full. It's more of a wet formula, but it's also not clumpy.

It stays on exceptionally over a 12 hour day. I'm a one-coat girl, and this gives me fabulous definition and volume that lasts all day. It's my favourite "high-end" mascara but not something I'll regularly purchase because of the cost.

First things first, I just have to say WOW! This is a great foundation. I wouldn't say it's holy grail for a couple reasons (I'll get to that) but I think it's very close to it. I've been on the hunt for the perfect foundation, I'm pale with yellow undertones (hard to accommodate for), and have dry skin. Generally, I like medium coverage foundations. So let's get to the pros and cons. The price of this foundation is $57 Australian dollars. This is not cheap, but isn't crazy expensive. Considering most drugstore foundations are around $30, and some of the top range ones around $90-100, this is middle market price but for a luxury effect. This is so moisturising! It feels like applying skincare, even with the formula being oil-free. The finish is probably a dewy-satin finish, (my face!) and when used with powder (Rimmel Insta Fix + Go) it becomes a soft matte. This illuminates the face and is so beautiful. My only complaint is that the colour selection isn't amazing in between tones, there are lots of options for my darker skinned hunnies, but in terms of undertones, each shade is quite different. For example, I am shade 010, a yellowy-neutral colour which is maybe half a shade too dark for me (won't be a prob in summer though), but 000 was a light colour with a pink undertone. What?! So -1 lippie for that. However, this is good value, looks beautiful all day and will get you so many compliments on your skin. Not oily, but still moisturising, I would really recommend you try and get a sample of this one. ***Note: the fragrance is quite strong for first 10 minutes, so be wary of this if you have sensitive skin or are sensitive to fragrance!***

Brows -Lancome - Sourcils Gel

Lancôme sourcils gel is a really underrated product that deserves more attention and raves. It's a really natural looking eyebrow gel, impossible to overdo unless you pack it on instagram style. It has a creamy powdery finish, not stiff or hard and very easy to comb out without drying out. I have never tried Anastasia dip brow so i can't compare but I don't feel the need to try other brands when I have this. I have shade 04 chatan and 05 brun, both work on me. I have dark brown/black asian brows. 04 is a matte cool toned dark brown with no shimmer. 05 is a darker brown with some shimmer in it but not noticeable when applied. It contains a respectable 5 grams and cost me $49aud.
