Mascara -Lancome -Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

Hate the name, love the mascara! The wand is a pretty standard Christmas tree type bristle brush, and the mascara is unscented. The wand isn't too big or too small, so application is quick and tidy. It fans outs and makes your lashes look incredibly full. It's more of a wet formula, but it's also not clumpy.

It stays on exceptionally over a 12 hour day. I'm a one-coat girl, and this gives me fabulous definition and volume that lasts all day. It's my favourite "high-end" mascara but not something I'll regularly purchase because of the cost.

Liquid -Lancome -Teint Miracle Radiant Foundation

First things first, I just have to say WOW! This is a great foundation. I wouldn't say it's holy grail for a couple reasons (I'll get to that) but I think it's very close to it. I've been on the hunt for the perfect foundation, I'm pale with yellow undertones (hard to accommodate for), and have dry skin. Generally, I like medium coverage foundations. So let's get to the pros and cons. The price of this foundation is $57 Australian dollars. This is not cheap, but isn't crazy expensive. Considering most drugstore foundations are around $30, and some of the top range ones around $90-100, this is middle market price but for a luxury effect. This is so moisturising! It feels like applying skincare, even with the formula being oil-free. The finish is probably a dewy-satin finish, (my face!) and when used with powder (Rimmel Insta Fix + Go) it becomes a soft matte. This illuminates the face and is so beautiful. My only complaint is that the colour selection isn't amazing in between tones, there are lots of options for my darker skinned hunnies, but in terms of undertones, each shade is quite different. For example, I am shade 010, a yellowy-neutral colour which is maybe half a shade too dark for me (won't be a prob in summer though), but 000 was a light colour with a pink undertone. What?! So -1 lippie for that. However, this is good value, looks beautiful all day and will get you so many compliments on your skin. Not oily, but still moisturising, I would really recommend you try and get a sample of this one. ***Note: the fragrance is quite strong for first 10 minutes, so be wary of this if you have sensitive skin or are sensitive to fragrance!***

Brows -Lancome -Sourcils Gel

foto

Lancôme sourcils gel is a really underrated product that deserves more attention and raves. It's a really natural looking eyebrow gel, impossible to overdo unless you pack it on instagram style. It has a creamy powdery finish, not stiff or hard and very easy to comb out without drying out. I have never tried Anastasia dip brow so i can't compare but I don't feel the need to try other brands when I have this. I have shade 04 chatan and 05 brun, both work on me. I have dark brown/black asian brows. 04 is a matte cool toned dark brown with no shimmer. 05 is a darker brown with some shimmer in it but not noticeable when applied. It contains a respectable 5 grams and cost me $49aud.

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

I find that Estee Lauder Double Wear sucks the life out of my skin, leaving me matte, chalky and flat looking. I still needed the lasting power for long days or events that I am unable to touch up or even check my makeup. I didn't *want* to like Teint Idole, because it's very expensive, IMO, but it's actually perfect. The color range is amazing, and it still has coverage without the cakey look of ELDW. I am ~NW20 in MAC, and have a good match in 220 Buff C. It's more of a demi-matte to satin finish, which I love, and it lasts all day. In the winter I tend toward more moisturizing foundation, but this is my summer staple.

Eyeliner -Lancome -Drama Liqui-Pencil

on 10/11/2017 7:45:00 AM

This is the worst eye pencil I've ever purchased. Not only it's impossible to sharpen, it also goes on like shoe polish and ends up in my eyelashes instead of my eyelids. Extremely disappointed, for such price I could've bought something that I could use.

Hm - I bought this last year (I've been on a foundation spree for about a year now.... it hasn't stopped) partly because of the good reviews I have read about it and partly because it claims to be a 24-hour foundation. I also read that this is a lighter, more skin-like version of ELDW (which I also have...) so I really wanted to try it out.

The colour I have is 13 Sienne (UK), and I bought this because the other in-between colours (13.1, 13.2) hadn't launched in the UK at the time. Funny enough neither of the other colours fit my skin tone, so 13 Sienne it is...

I love that you don't need much of this foundation. 1.5 pumps is more than enough. It spreads really well and is easy to work with (whether you want to use a brush, a sponge or your fingers). The finish is also quite nice - I wouldn't say it's matte; it's more a satin finish (if you skip the setting powder).

It lasts fairly well throughout the day - I wouldn't say 24 hours, but if you wear it to work or to a function that lasts a long time, it won't disgrace you.

Unfortunately, this is where the positives end for me. The first thing I didn't like was the very obvious fragrance. I really dislike fragrance in foundations - I don't see the need for adding them.

The foundation also breaks me out. As much as I try to use it, every time I do, I get a massive zit alongside my chin.

I'm also not sure about the colour match. I have warm undertones, so this should be perfect, but it does seem a tad bit too yellow for me. The shade up (14) is however too dark and red for me, so I don't know. On the other hand, I wore this foundation one day and someone commented that my skin looked flawless. Maybe it's simply down to preference.

Lastly, I have combination/oily skin. I will use primer, but I refuse to set with powder as I don't like the finish. I still like to look like me. Unfortunately, with this foundation, I would need a setting powder to make it last.

I actually like ELDW. I use it with a beautyblender and it works perfectly for me. I only wear it once in a while (when I really, really want to look made up) and it's never let me down.

So all in all, if I'm drawing comparisons between the TIU and the ELDW, ELDW definitely wins. But I wouldn't necessarily repurchase either of them, and neither of them are actual go-tos.

Primer/ Corrector -Lancome -La Base Pro

This is one of my favorite primers. It has a very silky, silicone feel. I use about one pump all over my face. This is really great over any textured areas I might have, and it just feels so smooth. I've tried a lot of other primers, but there seems to be something different about this one. I also found out that i was oil-free. Therefore, this works better with oil-free foundations. Typically I use this with Estee Lauder Double Wear or MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundations and it gives them flawless, all-day wear. Normally if I wear either of these two foundations without a primer, they begin to wear off around my nose and chin. This keeps the foundation in place and flawless all day,and it also feels really good on your skin. I had gotten this in a gift and I recently just purchased the full size.

I have used Lancôme mascara for 35 years and have always loved it. I was told by sales person that I would REALLY love this new one. Within two weeks, my eyeballs looked like they were on fire, and a third of my eyelashes fell out. Unfortunately I tossed the receipt and therefore can't even return it. What the heck, Lancôme?!

Can't believe these poor reviews... I haven't bought a Lancome mascara in over 15 years, have just had really good luck with several Rimmel, TheBalm, and some Maybelline mascaras, and just never felt the need to spend $25 again on mascara since discovering a few drug store good ones... I'm pleasantly surprised by this mascara. The girl at Sephora talked it up real good, and I bit...im not sure if I would buy it again, it does hit all the key points I need in a mascara; good volume and length, no flaking, not too wet or too dry, and has a great wand.. but Mad Lash by TheBalm is about $18, and I think it's a bit better than the Lancome... This is definitely an above average mascara, and I definitely recommend.

Hi there, if you want to buy this product, I really recommend you don't because it gave me a rash, itshing and dry skin.my skin is normaly really oily and nowits it dry in the area that was touch by the product. oviously it is different on everyone but me and my step-sister both used the product and got the same thing. If I was you, I wouldn't buy the product but you can at your own risk. To be honest, it was not worth the price for what you get but also for the reaction my skin got from me puting the product on my face for less than 15 minutes. Do NOT recommend.

Mascara -Lancome -Grandiose

This is by far my favourite all time performing mascara! Which is so funny because I was so sceptical of the bent brush when it was sold to me, but it is ridiculously amazing at getting in the corner of the eye!

Pros:
- Easily and quickly buildable for daytime or nighttime looks
- Defines lashes quickly
- Never clumps!
- Extends the look of my lashes
- Adds volume and thickness

Cons:
- Cost! Unfortunately super expensive in Australia at $54 AU
- It can smudge a little at the end of an 7 - 12 hour day, especially if you are (like me) a little oily, or layer on the eye moisturisers. Also, can smudge slightly under the eye in the heat. But - this may only be me! I do have long (and annoyingly spindly/sticky) lashes so take that with a grain of salt.

Definitely a solid mascara! Best for dramatic eyes!

Treatments (Eye) -Lancome -Visionnaire Yeux - Eye On Correction

I purchased this product after using Genefique for a decade, plus or minus. I wanted something stronger. I am completely disappointed in this product. It does nothing on my skin - and my eyes aren't that bad - and is less moisturizing than the Genefique. I think the consistency - thickish - which requires the user to pat the cream into the skin, is what helps eye bags.

Treatments (Face) -Lancome -Genifique

I love this serum and have repurchased. It eradicated the chronic texture on my cheeks. Additionally, it improved the radiance of my skin and slightly smoothed my forehead wrinkles. The packaging is fantastic-the glass bottle is quite substantial and elegant and it dispenses the exact amount of product that you need. I wish I could give it 4.5 stars. It doesn't deserve full 5 stars because it hasn't minimized the pigmentation of my two sun spots. When I run out, I plan to try another serum that can better tackle this, but I'm not sure I can be without this! Tip-if you see this as a 100 point perk, nab it! Even if you don't like the serum, the mini bottle is refillable and ideal for travel.

I love this, glides on quickly to my upper water line (only thing I line) and stays all day. It is soft and easy to apply and doesn't bother my eyes. I buy the color dark brown. Only negative as you will need to resharpen this once a week and your pencil will be all gone in a few months. Just found on sale for $15 at Sephora. Hope they are not discontinuing this as it is super fast and easy for those of us who line under eye (under upper water line)

I just did a review of this but want to add more comments, when you look at the reviews of this on here they go back to 2001, wow. Been a perfume that is still going. It's not the fruity short term wonders. And it was introduced the year I got married, and I remember my mom giving me this for Christmas which is my anniversary day. ❤️ love it
