Mascara -Lancome - Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

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.


Stick -Lancome - Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick

I have 61 year old dry, mature skin - Fair with pink undertones. It's difficult to find all day foundation that won't leave my skin looking parched and accentuating the texture of mature skin.

I tried this foundation last summer and my initial thoughts were "meh". So it went to the back of the foundation bag. I brought it out again this week and am really pleased with it. Originally the SA matched me with Buff C, which I think was a tad too dark for me. Recently I got the Ivoire C and that is a much better, pretty perfect match. I'm NW 15-20.

This time around - I really like this foundation - everything about it except for the price.

The coverage is really good - high medium. It goes on and blends like a dream. I use the Smashbox hydrating primer underneath. I use my fingers and then blend out with a kabuki brush. The finish is amazing - a soft matte that doesn't emphasize the texture of mature skin, doesn't settle into wrinkles or create polka dots in my pores. Then it leaves a super soft feeling on my face - just the best.

It holds up decently through the day with only needing blotting to my nose which always goes to shine in a few hours - no matter what foundation or primer I use.

What about the stick? Actually it's great for both application and travel.

The only negative about this foundation is the price for the small amount you get. It seems like I will run through this pretty quickly, although I do swap back and forth between this and Chanel Lift Lumiere when I want a lighter finish.

Love this foundation for my mature skin.

*Very* difficult to remove, doesn't volumize, lengthen, or do much of anything, the packaging looks like cheap drugstore stuff and the name is cheesy.
Used it for a week, tossed it.

Lancome has so many great mascara formulas, I have no idea why this one was even produced but it seems like a huge departure from their traditional icons.

Blush -Lancome - Blush Subtil in Cedar Rose/Rose Tendre

This looks pretty blah in the pan but is perfect for those "I just want natural colour" days. Totally foolproof. I use this about once a week and have had it for about 2 years...seriously only about 1/4 used. Worth the pretty high price tag ($72 Australian Dollars). I looks discontinues here is Australia which is a bummer

Stick -Lancome - Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick

Love the texture and finish of this, but not a fan of the lack of oil-control and longevity.

It's very creamy and blends like a dream with minimal effort required. It dries down to a natural looking medium-full satiny coverage. With one layer it hides about 80% of all my acne scars and completely covers redness and other mild discolouration. Because the formula has so much slick to it, spot concealing darker pigmentation can be a bit tricky as it tends to glide right off the layered area. It works with no problems for general all over layering.

For my very oily skin, this does not hold up the best throughout the day, especially on my T-zone. If I don't blot and powder this throughout the day, I am a greasy mess after 2-3 hours of wear. If you wear glasses, it will smudge and move on you, and does tend to settle into fine lines. It creased quite a bit in my laugh lines and forehead lines.

Overall, I'd say this is good for dry to normal/combination skin types. Lovely coverage, feel, and finish, but if you have oilier skin or more fine lines, expect it to move around a bit.

Concealers -Lancome - Effacernes Waterproof Long-Lasting Undereye Concealer

For me, it was a total disaster. I ran out my estee lauder long wear concealer and the seller persuaded me buy this product instead. I am 35, with very dark circles and line wrinkles down my eye. Unfortunately, this product does not seem to cover my dark circles and the worst of all, sits to my wrinkles and shows them worse. I was that unsatisfied that i could not wait to finish the product and bought again my estee lauder concealer. One of the biggest dissapointments I had with cosmetics.
PS: No, it is not waterproof for sure

My "Holy Grail" of department store mascaras; it replaced my Bad Lash by Benefit. This brand gives me great coverage, length, and volume with limited clumping. It's also very buildable.

I expected this to be a superior product being it is Lancome. But really, nothing special. Just go and buy any cleanser from drugstore and it will be the same. Burns eyes if it gets in them.
