Fragrances -Lancome -Tresor In Love

For all of us in love with the original Trésor as we got to know it in the '90s and now deeming it unrecognisable due to reformulations, we now haveTrésor in Love! I tried it just an hour ago and I can not tell you how much surprised I was to get lovely sniffs of the original gem, only a bit lighter and more powdery! My next purchase for sure!

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

on 6/21/2018 5:33:00 PM

This is a very good foundation. I have sensitive, combination skin with an oily t-zone. Despite a consistent skincare routine and using formula-consistent primers, every foundation separates or transfers on my nose and chin half-way through the day. Until this one. It does not separate or transfer once set with loose powder. It does not irritate or flake on the drier areas of my skin. It has a medium-coverage, semi-matte finish. Also, miraculously, it comes in my shade (100 Ivoire N). I do need to apply some powder around my nose after about 6 hours of wear. Overall, I would highly recommend trying this product if you have oily or combination skin and want a long-wearing medium-coverage foundation.

Edit: After reading the reviews of this product, it strikes me that many people have not had as much success using it as I have. I apply this foundation with my fingers after moisturizing with La Roche Posay Double Repair Moisturizer UV and priming my T-zone with elf Poreless Primer. I set the foundation with Dior Nude Air Loose Setting Powder and spritz with Skindinavia Oil Control Setting Spray. The steps before and after using a foundation have a huge impact on how long it lasts, and this foundation performs better than any other I've used between these steps.

Eye Shadow -Lancome -Ombre Hypnose Stylo

on 6/20/2018 1:50:00 PM

Very disappointed with this product. Shade selection is beautiful, especially lighter colors, however, it is very uncomfortable to apply and wear. The product is not creamy enough to apply directly to the lids, so it is better to use fingers.
You can feel the shadow as it dries down on the lids after application, as it creates a tight feeling on the lids. It is long lasting (sort of), but it does not fade or crease in a way you would expect from a shadow- instead it flakes and peels of in a very obvious way after few hours. Not sure if this is the case with all colors in the range, but will not be repurchasing- as there are far better products on the market such as MAC Pro Longwear.


Mascara -Lancome -Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

I have always been sold to lancome hypnose’s mascara and even if i stopped buying it because i dont use it enough to be worth it, i swore by it beig the best mascara ever no matter what. Got a sample from shoppers with all minis mascaras during christimas and have tried a couple of the other samples and thought they were gheeat but that one holymolly. I was shocked it was just as if i stole someone else’s eyes. I wouldnt use a second layer because with one it was far from enough. My friend swears by it too. Really great.

Mascara -Lancome -Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

I will absolutely follow-up on this particular review, as I have only tried some sample tubes of this mascara. I know occasionally the samples can be different than full-sized products (especially with mascara). When it comes to the sample tubes I have tried of this, I absolutely love it! I found this to be very volumizing without being clumpy/goopy with a creamy (not too thick!) formula. It’s also the perfect in-between consistency in which it is not too wet and not too dry/flaky! As soon as a run out of the sample sizes I have, I will be purchasing this on it’s own ASAP!


Foundations -Lancome -Skin Feels Good Skin Nourishing Foundation

I've had this for about a week now, I've used it about 4 times... This is THE one I've waited my whole life for! It's super fabulous. I love the smooth/gel like texture, the light coverage, the overall finish and wear time.. It just ticks all the boxes for my combo, mature, 48 yo skin. I don't have acne or acne scars, so one layer with a buffing brush gives me amazing coverage.. I have been using a big fluffy brush to lightly set with either MAC MSFN powder, or NO 7 perfect loose powder, then a spritz of either UD All Nighter, or just some rosewater, and it just looks amazing all day.. Definitely recommend. 💅💄💋

Palettes -Lancome -Les Toppings Eye Sugar Palette

foto

The Les Toppings Eye Sugar Palette is part of Lancôme's Spring 2018 makeup collection and consists of 5 iridescent shades, 3 matte shades, 2 ultra sparkly shades. The palette itself is on the smaller size and includes a mirror and a dual-ended brush which makes it travel friendly. Also, the eyeshadow brush is very soft as well. As for the shadows themselves, they are very soft to the touch and when applied to the eyes they blend very nicely and have very good pigmentation. This is a beautiful eyeshadow palette that is perfect for spring or just for a colorful and fun look. The only downside that I have with this product is that it is rather expensive. I go into greater detail about this product and also show swatches in my review video:

Concealers -Lancome -Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer

on 6/17/2018 11:36:00 AM

foto

I've given up on undereye concealers since my early thirties because they didn't make me look better. I'm 41 now and the only thing that was allowed to brighten up my dark circles up to now is YSL's Touche Eclat Nr. 1 or Lancome's Teint Miracle Foundation that is light and moisturizing enough. When I heard a youtuber recommend this concealer for "mature" skin I was skeptical at first but now I'm happy to report that this really is a fantastic concealer that's high coverage but moisturizing without being greasy.
It feels like a silky gel but fortunately not like silicone, it's difficult to explain, it feels protective. This performed well during the entire day and didn't crease or settle in fine lines. I also used it as a primer for my eyelids and it did a fantastic job in making the skin look luminous and naturally perfect.
Strangely enough, I have it in Nr. 1 which is a very light but flattering slightly peachy light rose colour and it adapts to my NC 25 skin so well that I was quite surprised. I set it with Laura Merciers secret brightening powder but I'd say that every finely milled powder should work with it.
The most important part is to find the right colour - you really have to apply it to decide which one suits your skin best.

Mascara -Lancome -Monsieur Big

This review is for the Monsieur Big Waterproof mascara by Lancome. I got a sample from Sephora. Even though the formula is waterproof, it gave me racoon eyes after 5 hours. A very disappointing product.

Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome -Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

foto

It's not very often I come across an eye makeup remover that does the trick for sensitive eyes, but this is one of them. Using a cotton pad I'm able to remove all traces of eye makeup, usually with no more than a couple of sweeps and no stinging! Also leaves the eye area lightly moisturized, but yet not oily. The only downside is when travelling the bottle leaks, which is why I transfer to a small leakproof travel bottle if I'm out of town, as that's the only way to keep it from spilling everywhere. I tend to purchase this during holiday promotions as you can sometimes pick up a double pack that saves money.

Mascara -Lancome -Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

My HG mascara; on my third tube! I love dramatic lashes, long and thick, but not clumped. I thought Lancôme Hypnose Doll or Grandiose were the best until I tried Monsieur Big. Without a primer, I get full, long lashes; with Lancome primer, I just about get the same appearance as when I had lash extensions (been using generic Latisse for years). My lashes are stick straight so an eyelash curler is a must - they stay in place with this mascara, no flaking or smudging. Can’t wait for some additional colors to be added.

there ok, found it pretty sheer, thick and sticky


Foundations -Lancome -Teint Idole Ultra Cushion

on 6/15/2018 1:08:00 PM

I really like how this foundation looks on my skin, however it took a bit of getting used to when applying.
Initially I used the puff that came with the cushion foundation. Using the puff to pat on the product it was very patchy so I then used my foundation brush to tidy it up. Subsequently I have always used a brush and to be honest probably should have got the non cushion version of the foundation.


Sunscreen -Lancome -UV Expert SPF 50

on 6/14/2018 2:02:00 AM

I got aqua gel 50 which was in a yellowish gel(there was another one which was gray and a bb-cream type). I tried it in duty free before and liked the appearance on my face with the overdewy appearance, the texture which was thin and moisturizing, non-sticky. Unfortunately, it is full of parabens and alcohols. There is literally no skin-beneficial ingredient aside aqua... and it is proced with 50+eur... what a joke. For such price I’d expect a sunscreen that would be free of any skin-irritants and cancerous ingredients and has some antioxidants. I could find such a product in Asian market for under 15€. Talk about branding...
