Mascara -Lancome - Cils Booster XL

Not sure how I feel about this. Hate that it's white. Mascara has to work hard to cover it up. If I let the primer dry and then put mascara on, the mascara doesn't really coat my lashes. The mascara kind of skims over my lashes. If I put mascara over this wet, then the mascara gets sort of 'dillluted'..not to mention very clumpy.

Why can't we just layer 2 different mascaras? Not sure of the purpose of a primer. Is it necessary? I have blond thin lashes and would love for it to work.

Eyeliner -Lancome - Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting eyeliner

I had tried lining the waterline and found my eyes to look terrible. I avoided the water line until this lovely Lancome Le Stylo long lasting liner. LOVE IT. I use the Chocolate color and it makes my eyes pop with color. I am not sure how long an eyeliner lasts but this one does about 8 hours on me. It can get messy if you don't use a steady hand. It is super creamy goes on smooth and feels beautiful on. No tugging not pulling no pain when lining the eyes. I use it on the waterline and above the lash to make my lashes look fuller.

I wish I could sharpen the point better so that I could make a finer line but that is what I get with a pen product. Anyway love this liner perfect for the dry sensitive eyed person.

This offers the same look as Estee Lauder's EE Enlighten Cream but leaves a tacky feeling on my face, i.e., I feel I have something on and that my skin is not breathing. The effect is beautiful, though. Light coverage, would still need to use corrector. Silky texture.

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

I have used this daily for at least 5 years. I wear a lot of waterproof makeup and I haven't found a cheaper product that does what this stuff does. It thoroughly removes all eye makeup in 1 or 2 swipes. I wish it was cheaper. The GWPs usually include a mini of this so I often have some on hand since I buy a product during GWP time.

I sadly trusted Sephora reviews and didn't check on makeup alley, and bought this. It's okay on volume but nothing special. But it really did smudge on me, so I'm glad I only got a sample size.

While trying the sample I thought it smelled sweet, a little bit too sweet but then I thought that strong sweet scent is youthful and suits winter time well...boy was I wrong!!!!
I'm not a fragrance expert so I'm not sure which ingredient is responsible, apparently it's patchouli but after an hour in my work place I noticed that I'm starting to smell like those heavy smokers who smoke a full pack in their car with windows all up! The sweet smell was totally vaporized and all that had remained was this terrible cigarette stink. Worse is that it lasted all the day long and had I not washed my clothes the same day I'm sure they'd keep stinking like that.
When I read others' reviews I found out that there's many people with this problem advising to avoid going under sunlight, warm places or crowds wearing this but considering it's a winter perfume and unless you decide to stay outdoor all day alone, you can't wear it at all. Because there's always some sort of heating system indoor or there's party with lots of people etc...
This was one expensive purchase I seriously regret. Wouldn't buy this or anything with patchouli ever again.

It smells very old fashioned. It actually smells like an old cheap cream of my grandma thats name I can't remember. It doesn't last long at all either which is good considering how it smells.

Beautiful packaging with a large brush, no scent that I could tell. There is a lot of product.

The color black is rich and so beautiful, but this mascara is about volume and I only saw it perform well only once. The other uses is just like others, so this mascara did not deliver what it is advertised for. This is why I give a low rating.

I found that this mascara had no fall out, didn't smear on humid days.

If you love this scent or sweet patchouli based fragrances, this is a great purchase. It lasts FOREVER and it's super strong. Even when I just put a little drop on my wrist and neck, I could smell this all around me, all day. I'm assuming others could as well, so that's something to consider. This could be easily overdone, so I would build up depending on your taste and avoid spraying on clothes.

For me personally, this made it quite cloying and I got tired of it. It has a super sweet, synthetic smell. I was hoping the patchouli would make it more natural, but this is definitely a perfume vs. a skin scent. Also - A LOT of people wear this as their signature scent.

I see this as a party, wedding or bedtime fragrance vs. an everyday office scent where you might offend some coworkers if you overdo it. Overall, a beautiful, high quality scent, but try to take it for a test drive to see how it wears on you!

Lips -Lancome - Juicy Shaker - All

I was very excited about this product, when I finally managed to acquire the melon colour/ flavour, I did what every impatient eger person would do. I slavered it all over my pouting lips.
At first it was it was amazing! A non-sticky lip gloss?! Nourishing, smells fantastic, looked gorgeous until... my lips were dryer and sorer than they had been in a long time... and this saddend me... but I didn't let that stop me, I was determined! Maybe this shade didn't agree with me? Maybe I was allergic to only this shade? So I bought another (can't remember the name but it's a subtle beautiful pink) slavered it over my lips, yet again... it was lovely again. Finally, I had found the perfect lipgloss! Or so I thought...then as a day or so had gone by my lips were getting more and more rashy. Yet again I had wasted my money, yet again my lips were dry and brittle... yet again... I was disappointed...

Eyeliner -Lancome - Le Crayon Kohl - Black Ebony

This is my favorite eyeliner pencil, there is just something about it that I can't find in other eyeliners. It is the only pencil I can use on my waterline without irritating the hell out of my eyes and eyelids (I've tried lots and lots of other pencils, every one of them makes my eyes watery and red), it is very soft and creamy- easy to apply and easy to smudge- after all this is the way this type of pencil is meant to be used. I find the color black ebony to be quite unique- it is not one of those blackest black shades but it isn't grayish either, looks absolutely stunning on hazel eyes- really plays up the green and the yellow. The main downside for me is the price, a pencil, even a good one shouldn't be THAT expensive. Of course, you get a good amount and it will last a long time, but still. Sadly I wasn't able to find a cheaper replacement- the color is always off, and my eyes disapprove.
Highly recommend for hazel or green eyes, anyone with sensitive eyes, anyone looking for a very smooth application and softer, yet not grayish, black.

I think this mascara is great, but it's not quite HG. And for the price tag, it needs to be HG. Nice black color, lots of added length but there needs to be more volume IMO.

It doesn't flake or smudge at all. This is a fully decent high-end mascara. But I like mascaras that make my lashes look plush and ridiculously dramatic. Jordana's Best Lash, UD Perversion, LM Full Blown Volume, Guerlain Maxi Lash. Mascaras like that.

If you're not looking for crazy volume and drama this might be the mascara for you. But I wouldn't buy it again.

Primer/ Corrector -Lancome - La Base Pro

I only got the deluxe size of this product and I am definitely repurchasing again! I have tried only a few primers in my existence but this primer really changed my makeup game. I'm actually afraid of buying primers in the beginning because I feel like it works differently on every skin type. Primers are really important cause one bad primer will fail your whole makeup. I think it's great that I got it in deluxe size before I got the full size cause this primer is pricey af. I would definitely try other primers so I could compare it with this one. I have visible pores and a lot of TEXTURES on my t-zone area but this primer came through! It will fill in any visible pores to help your foundation glide on smoother.


Lipstick -Lancome - L'Absolu Rouge - Effortless Chic 361

When first applied, it looks sheer, slightly bright and peachy. Kinda patchy at first, but after a minute or two, it melts into my lips, giving it a light pinky color. Looks really fresh on the lips and hydrating too. It doesn't feel goopy, and doesn't dry out even after ~5 hours.
