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

Mascara -Lancome - Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

I really wanted this new Lancome mascara after reading about it. It was everything it promised. I got long eyelashes in two coats. So far it has not irritated my eyes. I didn't experience any of the negative things that are in other reviews. It's not wet or dry or clumpy. It's perfect for building up my almost non-existent lashes.

To prevent smudging under the lashes I powder over any concealer or foundation. And while people who already have good lashes may find it too thick, that is not the case for me. It makes my invisible, short lashes visible and long, without looking fake. I can see how it might look fake if you are already blessed with nice long lashes. This is the best mascara I've tried in a long time. I will definitely be getting it again. I recently threw out some that were more than four months old and did nothing anymore. It's essential to get a new one when they stop working and this one is just great.

Update Aug 17/17: I have to modify my rave review. It is very difficult to remove with soap and water which is all I can use since I am allergic to all removers and cleansers. It does come off, but takes longer and is very resistant. Therefore I am rating it just two stars. Also I suspect it did begin to irritate my eyes so I can't use it. I'll give it a chance in a few months after my latest eye irritation is healed. I am better off with my old fave, Hypnose Drama, which comes off easily. I'll use this now and then but not buy it again.

Crap. Low coverage,orangy,pricey,it takes 3 hours to get off my face...I'm mature combo skin that treats my face like gold.The point is: if the product is high end, I want a high end foundation and have high expectations. Still looking for my holy Graal foundation. Yes, I'm NC 30,I bought Nº 03


Concealers -Lancome - Le Correcteur Pro

I got this as I liked the idea of an all in one product. It applies and blends beautifully but unfortunately fades very quickly and sinks into fine lines. It also separated and balled under my eyes. Would not recommend

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

I have been enjoying my Dior Forever Foundation and it has been my go-to for months now. One of my favourite YouTuber finally did a review on this foundation. Needless to say, I went to buy it without a second thought. For reference I am acne prone, combo skin. I'm between NC30-NC35 in MAC. It is currently winter in Australia. Here are my thoughts;

* Got the shade 035 Beige Doré. Boy oh boy it's too pink. It was described to be Neutral and there is nothing Neutral about it. 045 is too dark but has more of a yellow undertone. So wrong shade. 98% of the shade range available in Australia has a pink undertone. In total there are max 11 shades available.
* Oxidises like no one's business. It oxidises about 2-3 shades darker from initial application. To an orange with a slight hint of pink LMAO!
* It has a very strong frangance. It does fades away as the hours goes by. But 5hrs in, I can still smell it on my face and unfortunately, it's not a scent that I particularly like.
* Beautiful on first application. I prefer using a brush. I used my Kat Von D Foundation Brush in #10. I must say, I have to use 6 pumps all up to get it to a solid medium. But it does builds up beautifully. No caking or weirdness. Just beautiful, your skin but better.
* Unfortunately, 3hrs into wearing this and my oil in a very cold day is so visible and I can also feel it. But it still look nice. But 5hrs later, my face have just eaten this foundation around my cheeks, nose and mouth. It just vanished into thin air but left me with oil.
* Point of no return and you literally can't even save it once the coverage, patchiness and etc happens.
* Doesn't emphasis my pores, textures, lines or anything like that. But like I said, by 5hr mark....well it's gone so I feel so naked LOL.
* Used mattifying primers, setting powders on all occasions and mattifying setting spray. But results are all the same. All of these of my HG, so it's not them, it's this foundation.
* I also bought the LA Base Pro primer to go with it. I have to try it with other foundations to see if it will perform better with my EL DW or Dior Forever. I hope so, because it's expensive!!!
* By the end of Day 3, it broke me out. Not so much acne...more like little lumps on the surface of my skin. My break out reactions are usually deep cystic ones but this one is on top of my skin, itchy, red bumps with white heads. YUCK!

I wanted to love this foundation because it's more expensive than my EL but for me, it really doesn't have any redeeming qualities starting from the shade all the way to my skin reactions and all the ones in between. Save your money or get a sample first and try it for yourself. Be mindful of the breakout if you are acne prone or have sensitive skin. It's not worth the breakout.

BB Cream -Lancome - Bienfait Teinté Beauty Balm Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Oh, ugh, ugh, ugh. Nope

My story: I'm on the hunt for new foundation or bb cream, or what have you. I'm fair and pinkish (and somewhat dry and sensitive), which sound innocuous until you are standing in front of 10 options of yellow product and SAs who are convinced that EVERYONE is yellow. Anyway. Lancome has regular foundations in a color that's actually a pretty good match. So off to Nordies I go, where the SA suggested this product.

Holy cats. It looked pretty good when it was first applied. I thought so, and so did a couple of sales ladies (at another counter). 90 minutes later, it's sticking to dry spots - ok, what doesn't do that? - and settling into lines. On pondering the physics of facial motion and creamy stuff, this sounds about right. But then, here comes the burn. Which is, in this case, literal; sensitivity fired itself up and got all offended, and it was a mad dash for the sink to GET IT OFF. I used micellar water twice, and two passes with Purpose facial cleaner (lots of silicone here). And now we can see the red, stinging splotches all over my face.

So here's the summary:
Pros:
-ok color match

Cons:
-settles into lines
-separated around the nose
-clings to dry patches
-NEVER could forget it was on. (I don't really want to be aware of my foundation. That alone is a deal breaker for me.)
-allergic reaction, lots of stinging, burning, redness
-price: $49 for this? Really?

I bought this stuff almost 2 hours ago. It's going back PDQ.

This is a great mascara. It is very black and gives great volume and length. It doesn't flake or smudge. Lasts all day. I think it is Lancome's best mascara.

I got this as a free sample. I don't think it is as bad as the reviews say. It is a wet mascara but I don't mind that. It can give you a false lash look. I am not sure if it is worth the money, but I do not think this is a bad mascara at all. I put down not repurchase but will update as I go through the tube if I think it is worth the money.

May be it is ment to be for younger skins. Being 35 and having bought this product for every day use, I got really disappointed. It does not last at all, (i did not expect coverage anyway, and you should better not expect it as well) For such a price, I expected higher quality than a drug store make up, which I found not.

I got a one-use sample and used it on my face and neck. Didn't seem to do much for me and now, 3 days later, my face and neck are COVERED in tiny bumps. My skin is not particularly sensitive and I have used other Lancome face products with no ill effects. I look awful and I'm probably going to have to visit my dermatologist now. Grrrrr.
