Moisturizers -Lancome -Visionnaire Advanced Multi-Correcting Cream

I really like this cream but feel like a lone voice in the wilderness! I have it in 'rich' and only need a little bit to cover my whole face. I find it smoothing and soothing and think my skin looks fresher and even a bit more bouncy (!) especially if I'm feeling and looking like I've been dragged through a hedge backwards first thing in the morning. Unfortunately this is more often than not as I get older and have been forking out a small fortune on skincare. Most is OK, but nothing special, but this cream is my favourite to date. The Visionnaire night gel/cream night is also pretty good imo. I also really like the smell!

There are products that should be forbidden, this is just one of those! Such poor quality and lack of respect for skin. I never had high hopes about Lancôme but this is beyond bad.

Mascara -Lancome -Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

on 2/8/2018 8:33:00 PM

I'm gratified to see the low score here because that's all it deserves. Frankly I would flinch at buying a mascara or any makeup item called "Monsieur Big". At best, it's cheesy and cringeworthy, at worst it's demeaning and crude and fetishises makeup and gives it a misogynist slant. Why give a makeup item a masculine form. I don't mind "meet Matt(e)" but I don't like the subservient connotations of "Mr Big", it really irritates me and if Lisa Eldridge names it then that is peculiar. Having said that, I might put the cat amongst the pigeons by admitting actually I don't like Lisa Eldridge. I mean, I watch her videos and I bought her book, but her manner and her estuary accent kind of annoy me. But I love her hair and outfits and she's always age-appropriate which is more than can be said for most you-tubers her age and above who pump themselves with Botox and filler and bleached hair and dress like teenagers. Lisa Eldridge clearly uses filler Botox and hair dye, but she does it in the best way possible. So if she named this then I can only suppose she is a Sex and the City fan? It's still odd.

Anyway apologies for that diatribe. So onto the product. I nearly bought this but my hunch was that it wasn't good. Coupled with the aforementioned name issue lol. So I instead placed my order for my beloved Hypnose and the lash primer. Both excellent. This mascara came as a sample so I got to see if my reservations were well founded. They were. This has a big unwieldy brush (ahem, now how to avoid sounding like a dirty joke) and size is good but sometimes too big is too big. I prefer the more elegant form of the Hypnose brush. The big brush picks up a lot of product and does give volume, but in a clumpy way. It reminded me of loreal punky mascara, if they still make that. And final nail in the coffin - it transfers and smudges. And then to add insult to injury it's hard to remove and needs a good eye makeup remover. In the Bin it goes. Monsieur big let down.

This is truly rubbish to me. I was so excited to try visionarie line after visiting lancome counter. It said it acts like a corrector to treat all the skin problems. But after my application, my face has become sore, feels like burning and very itchy. Afterwards, face turns to very very dry and painful. This is my first irritation on skin care. I will suggest you to try a sample before buying a full size. What a waste of my money! (It's so expensive though and make my skin upset!)

Love it!! This is so easy to apply. You hardly need a brush. It literally melts into your skin. You can choose the coverage you want (light, medium, full - you can play with it). And o so handy to take with you when travelling.

The shades are also very nice, a lot of different colors, so one of them must be your fit. Must have!

Mascara -Lancome -Hypnose Drama

on 2/7/2018 12:36:00 PM

Oh dear, this mascara is an epic nightmare. To me Lancone is known for the best HE mascaras. This particular one is not good. I had issues with poor coverage and clumpiness, to the extent that I just had to discard it entirely. I fixed it by going over it with a WNW mascara until it was acceptable to leave the house. I find it frustrating that several of their mascaras have similar names. The regular hypnose is good, it's the drama one to avoid. I think Lancome should discontinue this one. Its extremely expensive and appears to be widely disliked. The packaging and wand are ok, otherwise it's simply unusable.


Foundations -Lancome -Miracle Cushion

Have purchased 4 different cushion foundations the last month or so, I had never used one before that, and have liked the concept. The Lancome was the most expensive, and really didn't blow the others out of the water, considering it costs 2-4x more than the others (l'oreal, Maybelline dream cushion and WNW mega cushion), I give it a solid 3.8 lippies rounded up to 4..I have used it several times, applied with a damp Beauty Blender, and liked the results, but don't think I will repurchase.. I think I would rather spend a little more and try the new Armani cushion foundation.. I do recommend the Lancome as a good product, but not a good value for the price compared to others.

After a long search to replace my favourite Lancome Teint Miracle Corrector (discontinued) I thought Lancome had finally produced a good alternative. I tried this product at the counter in John Lewis on the recommendation of the assistant and it seemed to make my under eye skin look really good so I bought a tube.

When first applied, I thought it felt lovely and creamy and covered REALLY WELL. Unfortunately by the time I got home with my purchase it had settled into the fine creases (I don't have many!) and the texture looked kind of dry and thick.

Value-wise, a little goes a very long way and if this product works for you, you do get a lot for the money here. The old Teint Miracle Corrector clicky pen / brush packaging style was nice to use but seemed like a lot of plastic for a few millilitres of product so this is a big improvement.

I think this product would be good if you're looking to cover dark circles but you have absolutely no lines as the pigment density is very high and it does cover well. However, I won't be repurchasing as I prefer a more moisturising and illuminating under-eye concealer.

Mascara -Lancome -Cils Booster XL

I actually use this more at night to condition my eyelashes rather than an eyelash primer. Love that it doesn't have mineral oil in it. I use to use Loreal's primer, but I can now get this Lancome primer in a mini size so I can justify the price. I am religious about never keep mascara or mascara primer longer than 2 months. The trick for a smooth application and to prevent clumps with any type of mascara which will be applied on top of this primer is to apply your mascara while primer is still wet. If the primer dries, then you will risk clumps.

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

I have combination NC skin.

This foundation is really good. And I say really good, but unfortunately, not great.
It smells nice, applies in thin buildable layers, and feels good on the skin.

My qualms are:
- it tends to sit in my pores the more I apply. Particularly on the forehead. I expect it to blend out as my forehead is quite oily and this is a mattifying formula, but no dice.
- I find it can’t see me through a workday, even with primer.

It’s a good foundation in minimal application on my skin type, but not one that I would pay $64aud for again considering the drawbacks.

What you don’t realize when you are younger, is that products that you adore, will suddenly stop working as you age.
I had a few favorite concealers - NARS being one of them, that now cake around my eyes and show every little line. Some lines that I didn’t even see until I put concealer on!
I have searched for the perfect under eye concealer. This is it.
It is amazing. Coverage with no caking and no creasing. Even after 12 hours ! It’s expensive but you need very very little so it will last a long time. It’s highly pigmented but not pasty. I love this SO much that it is now the only thing I will ever use again. My search is over. Even if the price went up- I would still buy it.
If you are struggling to find a concealer for mature skin, you won’t be sorry with this. I am an N20 and use light buff for the record.

Lip Gloss -Lancome -Juicy Tubes - Simmer

on 2/1/2018 11:22:00 PM

I've been using Lancome Juicy tubes for more than 15 years and this one is my favorite not only out of Lancome range but the ultimate favourite gloss ever. Some Juicy Tubes lack the color payoff, some tend to be drying, some wearing off funny leaving whitish cast at the corners of the mouth, but not this one.
This one is probably the most pigmented out of them all, it has the best delicious sweet fruity yet expensive smell and absolutely no taste. It lasts long, can survive a non-messy meal and some coffee breaks. It has a pigmented peachy shimmer color yet my lips appear to be neutral toned while I'm wearing it. It gives me plumping and rejuvenating effect while I wear it. It also moisturizes my lips and goes with everything. Love the tube applicator.
The perfect lip gloss. I can't say enough good things about it.

I like it very much. I am NC25 and my shade is no2 Lys Rose. It is very light with natural coverage. It is a longwearing product but with medium and NOT BUILDABLE coverage. It blends extremely easily. I have dry skin with severe dermatitis so I want a more full coverage foundation. But when my skin has a good day, this product is almost perfect. It is not for an oily skin. I will buy it again ONLY ON SALES because it is a very "easy" foundation.

Awful overhyped mascara. I tried this years ago and thought it was rubbish. After seeing so many positive reviews I thought I would give it another try and I really wish I’d saved my money. It gave me horrible spidery lashes that clump together and it runs really badly. There are a ton of drug store mascaras that are way better than this for less than half the price. Save your money.
