I wanted to love this mascara, but it was much to wet for my lashes. Doesn't seem that the tube pulls the wand tightly enough to remove the excess.


Lip Gloss -Lancome - Juicy Tubes - Lychee

This shade seems to have changed - it's now a shimmery, very slightly peachy light pink with actual noticeable glitter. It smells like lemonade rather than lychee. I use it mostly as a lipstick topper, sometimes alone. I'm thinking I wouldn't spend the dough on Lychee again, although, as always, I appreciate the slanted applicator squeeze tube and thick, sticky consistency.

I love this foundation, my skin looks flawless and smooth. Although light weight foundation give only light to medium coverage it suit anyone who wants your skin to looks natural. So I highly recommend this foundation, it's one of my favorite foundation

Liquid -Lancome - Teint Idole Ultra 24h

I've heard many great things with this product and I tried it out for a max of 1.5 weeks. The color was beautiful and the coverage was as well but it felt like it never set even after packing on setting powder? It also transferred like crazy. I'll stick to my ELDW.

Liquid -Lancome - Teint Idole Ultra 24h

Tried TI out recently, there has been a reformulation or repacking, I remember using this foundation years ago (didn't love it back then either), but it definitely has changed, it's thinner and dryer now and seems to have less coverage. It's a solid medium cover than can be built up somewhat, but nowhere near the pigmentation of classic Estee Lauder Double Wear liquid, for comparison. The shades are forgiving, but the liquid is on the dry side and clings to skin a bit too much, which makes blending a tiny bit frustrating. I don't find it that long lasting either, definitely not 12 h, and by no means 24h. 6 h is more realistic and then there is already some uneven fading, which makes skin look unflattering and rough. There are other liquid foundations that actually last all day long and look so much better on skin than TI, starting with L'Oreal Infallible and ending with my HG Sisley Phyto-Teint Eclat.

Liquid -Lancome - Teint Idole Ultra 24h

The shade 02 Lys Rose is a very good match for my nc25 skin. But.... i do not know why the beauty bloggers rave about this foundie. First of all, it is not a full coverage foundation. It gives a medium coverage but buildable. Although it has a nice and elegant packaging, a subtle smell of freshness and a hydrating sense on my skin, it has not so hydrating formula and it gives me a bit of cakey look by sitting on my dry flakes. I apply it with a beauty blender for a more airy result but...not a complete satisfaction for me... I had much better full coverage foundations than this. I would not buy it again.

After playing with all the current Lancome foundations this one looked the best in swatches so I got samples of Teint Miracle in 01 and 03 (for when I'm pale and for when I'm tan). The color blends nicely and adapts to a certain degree, so it doesn't look mismatched at all. It does oxidize to a bit deeper shade on skin though. Application is easy, with any brush or beauty blender, no issues there. I also loved the finish, my first reaction was - 'so pretty!', it's not full-on dewy finish, but satin luminous. I wouldn't say it gives that 'your skin but better' finish, it still looks like makeup, but in a good way. The pamphlet on white light reproduction on skin is on to something. Coverage is decent, quite high, but not quite full. Applied with a brush it covers most of the uneven tone and redness, with beauty blender the cover is more medium-sheer. It's not enough to fully hide dark circles or acne, but I don't think it claims that. Doesn't instantly settle in pores and doesn't grab on to any drier patches, so that's a huge plus. The downfall is the lasting power and how it behaves on skin during the day. It goes from satin luminous to shiny within 2 hours. I tried it with a few different sunscreens and moisturizers, even a matte one that usually serves as decent base and on bare skin, but the result eventually is the same, 2-3 hours and it needs blotting or powder (both talc and silica based), and neither helps much. It turns shiny soon after. While it doesn't separate into an absolute greasy mess, after those 2-3 hours the flaws it hid start peeking though again and then it settles into creases, despite setting powder. I never expect 15h continuous coverage, very few foundations can actually deliver that promise, but Teint Miracle falls short of even lasting for 6-8 hours. It also transfers heavily onto fabrics. Another thing is that I couldn't comfortably use it around eyes, it's either the idiotic inclusion of a outdated UVB filter or the Lancome-typical fragrance, but it irritates my eyes a bit. Summary: Teint Miracle looks wonderful on my skin for the shortest while and then decays rapidly.

Fragrances -Lancome - La Vie Est Belle

LVEB is to the 2010s what Coco Mademoiselle was to the 2000s and what Angel was to the 1990s: a high-quality, impeccably crafted sweetchouli that you smell everywhere, that is the ambient noise behind every high-end cosmetics counter... but that you grudgingly admit to be very nice. It's more wearable for me than either Coco Mad or Angel-- which is likely because it sat in focus groups for a long time getting cleansed of any hint of filth or controversy.

I wear and enjoy LVEB without expecting it to be other than what it is. If you poured into a cauldron Pink Sugar, Euphoria, Fantasy, Flowerbomb, Prada Candy, and every iteration of Marc Jacobs and Juicy Couture over the past 10 years, and added a touch of the required Lancome maturity so that the scent could be convingly worn by those >35, you'd have LVEB. It is sweet but not silly, grounded quite well by the iris and patchouli, and it projects for hours and miles so you get your money's worth. It just plain smells good. Great, even. My family far prefers smelling this on me than some of my beloved vintage stinkers (which makes me sad because they don't share my elevated tastes).The praline and blackcurrant are delicious, the patchouli is just-enough, the florals make this clean instead of sticky. It's full-bottle worthy to me, if only because I subjectively prefer it to the many other scents in this category that smell quite similar to it. Sometimes you just want to smell non-controversially "nice" and this one fills that bill.

Mascara -Lancome - Grandiose

I bought the burgundy which looked like a spiced brown on my lashes. The brush took some getting used to and I never felt fully comfortable with it. But my biggest dislike was how this mascara smudged. For $37 this should not be the case. All of the quality went into the beautiful lucite tube. And this contains fragrance which bothered my eyes and contacts.

I did get thickness and length with multiple coats but nothing wow that I haven't found with Maybelline or Mary Kay mascaras. And as far as the colored mascara I will try a plum from a different brand like Clinique or Almay.

Lipstick -Lancome - Color Design - Trendy Mauve

on 8/14/2017 10:09:00 AM

I received a tube of this as a GWP when I purchased my Dual Finished powder (HG powder foundation, best ever). I am absolutely hooked on this lipstick! It's the color I have been searching for my entire life. This shade is so flattering, so sexy and so gentle. The formula is pigmented yet sheer enough to layer. It is moisturizing, comfortable and lasts very well on the lips. I wear this color almost every day; it works well for all seasons and is easy to add drama to a smokey eye or tone down a softer look. I will repurchase this lipstick once I run out of the tube I have, I never ever want to be without this!

Sunscreen -Lancome - UV Expert SPF 50

I have dry Asian skin with medium skin tone around NC35-37. I love this Lancome GN Shield SPF50 and have been using it for almost 10 years before that I used Shiseido Anessa / Clinique City Block / Neutrogena ultra sheer. Lancome is my favorite as texture is not too dry, absorb very well and no perfume. It is easy to clean with warm shower no need make up removal.
I don't mind Anessa but it is more suitable for someone require waterproof / sweat-proof and you have to use makeup removal.
With Lancome I never have break out or allergic even slept overnight with it (skip shower in Winter). It is mixture between physical and chemical sunscreen so I guess it does the job without too greasy like others and gentle to my skin.
Only drawback it is pricey and they don't stock in shopping malls in Australia. So I always grab it from the duty free (by myself or ask friends) normally duo pack available with much cheaper price. Also sometime they have special discount. Lately they've changed to triple pack which even better. End up I paid around $50 each so it is not too bad.

I was super excited to try this mascara but it just didnt work out for me. I have sparse, straight lashes and this does provide some nice volume and length, but it does not hold a curl at all. I put this on and it made my lashes droop down! If they ever make this in a water proof version I will try it again (wp usually holds the curl better) but otherwise this is a NOPE. I like hypnose drama in wp better!

Bronzers -Lancome - Star Bronzer Bronzing Powder

I have this in 01 lumiere (shimmer) and its soooooooooo pretty! Im extremely pale (nc10ish) and this adds a beautiful flush to my skin. It has the slightest pinky tone to it that makes it look very natural, its not muddy or brown. The packaging is a beautiful dark bronzey compact with a bronze/gold rose traced onto it. Very pretty! I love this bronzer!

I know this product is very pricey, especially for a mascara, but this is by far my favourite. This is one of the only mascaras that really goes above and beyond to make my eyelashes pop. I personally love making my eyelashes the star of the show for my makeup look and I do not wear falsies and I find this is the best thing for false looking lashes! really do recommend!


Eye Shadow -Lancome - Color Design Shadow & Liner Palette "Taupe Craze"

First off this is a great palette but they are very miserly with the pan size / amount given. It gives a pretty and neutral look - it is a great bunch of colours however the glittery shades do need to be used with discernment or else they bunch in on themselves on your lid and look like wrinkles. An exact dupe in every respect is Palladio Silk FX in Debutante- i recommend that over this because it is really exactly the same in every way possible but you get larger pan size
