Liquid -Lancome - Teint Idole Ultra 24h

This product is a dream. I'm extremely acne prone, with fair skin, discolouration and scarring caused by acne, with a severe allergy to the majority of suncream and foundations containing spf.
Its a rare find to come across a foundation that matches my skin, or doesn't break me out, or cause an allergic reaction, and looks good. With other products (mac, clinique, dior, urban decay, bobbi brown and every high street brand you can imagine) I achieve 2 of those things at best.
With this foundation, I have everything I want. You can build it super easily with a damp beauty blender, layer it to cover anything and everything. It last well with primer and setting spray and I've never seen a foundation look that good on my skin, let alone one that doesn't leave my face in agony!
The only downside for me is at that price, I would like it to be cruelty free. But for foundation this good I'm willing to put usual scruples to one side, and ignore the cries of my bank account. I'm a student, so the cost is a stretch but I love it enough to forego food if needs be! I adore this product and I can't recommend it enough.

I loved this so much 25 years ago! I worked overtime for an entire very nasty shift just to pay for it.
Now it is only OK. Just kind of smells like any generic perfume and rather old fashioned. Have I changed or has the fragrance changed?


Lips -Lancome - Juicy Shaker - All

I have this in the shade "show me the honey" which is a peachy nude but almost clear on my lips. It gives juuust the slightest tinge of colour that enclaves my lips which I love and I love the extra oily look to my lips. Downside to this is that most of time, this wears off pretty quick and when it's off my lips feel dryer than they did initially before application. I didn't expect this to intensely moisturize my lips but it almost doesn't at all. I will usually apply a thing lip balm first to make it work.


Blush -Lancome - Blush Subtil Shimmer - Miel Glace 23

I'm warm/neutral, fair (NC 20) and I love this blush. It's a beautiful neutral shade, very flattering and sophisticated. I've tested it on my mom also, and it looks amazing on her too. At first I was intimated and worried that it would look like a hybrid bronzer/blush (like Benefit's Rockeuter, which was too dark for me) but this is more neutral. Also, it has some shimmer but it is very finely milled and gives a 'lit from within' look. I have very large pores and this was a concern of mine but I had no problems.

In terms of longevity, I'd say ~6hrs or so (that's good for me, I have combo/oily skin) - even with primer, setting powder and setting spray.

At present, I'd definitely re purchase if I ran out. I'm honestly hoping though to find a cheaper dupe by then (it's AUD $74), and if I do I'll update this review. I definitely recommend this blush, it's my holy grail product.

Mascara -Lancome - Definicils High Definition Mascara

This was my HG mascara in the nineties and early 2000's, but now compared to other more robust offerings, it seems anaemic. It does build nicely, and lengthens well. But I cannot get the thickness I desire and it takes 2-3 coats to get the length I would like. I bought a tube recently thinking it might be better than what I have been using over the last few years, but it's not as good.

All I can say, after trying this for months, is it is odd!!! I never had a problem with clumping or smears or smudges with any mascara I have ever used. This curved wand and overly wet texture is weird!! I end up with smudges on the top lid and bottom, sides of my eyes, just everywhere. I have tried different methods, watched utube videos until I get blurry-eyed. I will never purchase this again. It was so expensive that every time I consider throwing it out, I hesitate, but it is pretty much non usable for me.

Foundations -Lancome - Le Teint Particulier Custom Made Makeup

I recently heard about this product from Allure and decided to try the experience. I wouldn't usually buy a single foundation for $80 though the thought of me saving money from buying 2 foundations and mixing them to make my color sounded appealing. Not going to blabber about the experience; you can watch youtube for that. I've been using the foundation for 1 week now and I feel that I can get better quality foundation from Laura Mercier for almost half the cost. I don't think its terrible but the cost vs. quality is way off the mark. Pass!

It is easy to see why LVEB is the best selling fragrance in Paris... It's uber feminine and a total man magnet! Seriously, if I had a dollar for every time a man made a huge fuss over how amazing I smell when wearing this I could buy another bottle. lol

If you don't like sweet-gourmand types, don't even bother. You'll hate this. But if that's your preference I can almost guarantee you'll love this. It's the queen of gourmands! Great longevity, silage, well made, heavy glass bottle. Beautiful glittering box. I like that they accommodate the blind with braille on the box also. I did give less lippies for price just because I am tired of all designers charging these obscene amounts for perfumes. I think my 3.4 was 125$. That's average though nowadays but still crazy! I just found out Perfumania sells them for 88$ so I'll go that route next time. But price is my only complaint.

This is my husbands absolute favorite. He always tells me "You shouldn't even bother with any other perfume, babe. That one is the one!" lol

I bought the colour Mangoes Wild, and I think it's very pretty. What I dont like about this product is something that I already knew about before buying, so I don't think it counts: it's that it's not like a gloss, its far more runny. But then again it's a lip oil, not a lipgloss so I cant complain. The colour stays on for quite a while which is very good, but the moisture goes away quickly.
The applicator is very soft to the lips but I dont know if it will last till the end because it's quite fragile. And it's better if you dab it on the lips instead of spreading it like you would a lipstick.
The scent is pleasing but I was disappointed because they made such a fuss about it that I thought it would be a little bit stronger, and its almost unscented. And I am those kind of people that don't wear a good lipstick if it has a weird smell, so Im very sensitive. And even being sensitive the smell is quite faint.
I gave the product four lippies because I think it's nice that they made a new product, with a different twist, and I love the colour. And the packaging is endearing.

Does not smear. The best eyeliner I've ever bought. Lasts for a long time. Price is a bit too high.

As a serum, this stuff sucks... BUT its a great primer! While this did absolutely nothing to improve the texture or clarity of my skin, I feel like this stuff definitley improves the longevity of my foundation! Once I run out I will not be repurchasing. There are plenty of cheaper alternative out there that will do the same thing for me, but for much less.

I quite like this mascara, but I think it is way too pricey. The wand is kind of weird looking, like you wouldn't think it would give such nice lashes but it actually does.

PROS:
- Separates lashes very well
- Add volume and a bit of length
- Doesn't clump
- You don't need a lot of product

CONS:
- It smudges A LOT onto your eyelids (I've tried using powder, setting spray even hairspray and nothing helps)

I think you can get mascaras just as good as this one for way cheaper, but it's nice to try if you can afford it.

Mascara -Lancome - Hypnose Doll Eyes Waterproof

on 3/22/2017 2:17:00 PM

Great volumizing mascara, I love the wand too. Really thickens but can clump as well, but all's well, i'll just use covergirl's clump crusher over it afterwards and the clumps will disappear while clump crusher lengthens my lashes.
I have pretty straight lashes so, not many mascaras can hold a curl, this included. But still, pretty waterproof.

Love the effect it gives, I've tried many volumizing mascaras but not many can compare to this. I always get compliments when I use this. Try it if you haven't! I love this more than the hypnose one.

This initially looks good. Later, it looks dewey and scaley. It looks scaley and like a hot mess. I wish it looked as good as the first hour in which I applied it. I think it might contribute to breakouts. I have not thrown it away yet. It looks that good at first application that I will keep it just to take pictures in.

I am in the shade 01, a yellowish warm tone. I have been using it for long years. At times I got bored and wanted to try other foundations but always ended up coming back to this even without finishing the other ones.
Till now it is the only foundation which didn't upset my sensitive skin with red bumps or itchiness or dryness anything like that.. My skin is dry, a bit reddish around the nose. But this foundation just gives the illusion of a much healthier and even look . Its dewy but doesnt look oily.
I just use it with a moisturizer under it thats all. No powder or primer but when you use such things, it may work better on oily skin.
I love its smell, it's colour tone, its moisturizing effects, its looking healthy and glowy.. everything. I cant say much about coverage, as I dont have many scars or acne on my face. But what I can surely say is, instead of covering, this foundation does something else that still finishes and looks healthy although you know there is some pimple under it :)
