Liquid -Lancome -Renergie Lift Makeup SPF 20

foto

My skin looks oily with this product or too dewy so that first hand for me is a no go! I also feel looks blotchy in some areas yet looks very natural in other areas. I do apply a second layer to areas where have more disclorations. Feels thin but feel looks heavy but that could be could I have the wrong color. This oxidizes color when I applied matched perfect with my skin then as it sits turned like 2 shades darker and more an orange/peach tinge! Although color at first was more a neutral beige shade so be careful as it's not color as first applied.

Skin Type: dry to very with hormonal acne and Rosacea around my nose and mouth

I recently bought this foundation in 215 BUFF N. I’m a huge fan of Lisa Eldridge and now that she’s creative director of Lancôme, I wanted to try out a foundation from them. Unfortunately, this is not a good foundation for my skin type. It does have excellent coverage to the point where you can build enough *THIN* layers to use it as a concealer, which is great, however I wanted a foundation, not a concealer and honestly, this feels like I’m covering my face in concealer. I put thin, thin layers of this on and then build where I need a bit more coverage. Unfortunately, as I build the coverage, it starts looking like I have foundation on my skin no matter how much I blend, blend, blend.

I cannot speak for combo and oily skin types, because my skin is relatively sensitive with Rosacea and is dry (and very dry in the winter). I also tried adding some face oil (Josie Maran argan oil) to the application, but I was still a bit unhappy with the result. It really clings to dry patches (which are impossible to avoid on my face) and even my little peach fuzz facial hairs. Also, it amplifies my pores too. Yeah..this foundation just did not work out for me at all. I really like Armani luminous silk foundation. It’s ~$15ish more expensive, but it works on my skin to the point that it literally looks like my skin but flawless in a totally normy, nom-patchy/flaky way.

My biggest suggestion would be: get a sample and use it for at least three days before buying. Had I done that, I would’ve really noticed how it interacted with my skin and I would not have bought it. Just testing it in the store was not enough for me and I regret only doing that. It’s $47 so it’s worth testing at home first.

I will say however, if this foundation DOES work for your skin, it’s good value because it’s got such good coverage, you only need to use a little and the bottle is really big.

Blush -Lancome -Blush Subtil Sheer - Sheer Amourose

This is the only Lancôme blush I’m not gaga about. The color just looks clownish on my pale skin, and for some reason it causes breakouts. It had a bit of a funky scent to it too. I used it for a little over a year and I just found the color didn’t work for me and pitched it. I can see how it would be lovely for someone with a deeper complexion whose skin was less fussy. I have several other Lancôme blushes and they’re all excellent. This was just a miss for me.

HOLY GRAIL. QUEEN OF ALL MASCARAS.
Love the wand, the sleek packaging and formula. Doesn't clump my lashes but separates, darkens and curls them. Definitely buildable- can be subtle for school or full on huge for nights out. I have quite full lashes and I find so many mascaras clump them together instead of accentuating them- but this makes them look amazing. Love love love

Primer/ Corrector -Lancome -Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Color Corrector

For starters, I have a terribly ruddy complexion in which my entire face is red. I had high hopes for this but I'm not using it as much as I would like. First off, it's very pigmented, thick, and extremely difficult to spread out. The first time I used this I looked like the Wicked Witch of the West; I was that green. Obviously, I used too too much. However, on the plus side, even just the tiniest dab goes a very long way. I did find that it was peeking through my foundation and it took much blending it diminish the greenish tint. Even after all that, my face still had a pinkish look to it. Therefore, I'll only be using this on the weekends and when I have extra amounts of time to apply and work on my face. Needless to say, I was disappointed and believe that other color-corrector products from various brands like Cover FX and Algenist work better.

Primer/ Corrector -Lancome -La Base Pro

foto

This product is NUTS.

I have not used a primer since my attempt with Benefit Porefessional. I just think primers in general are redundant, unnecessary, a product that would increase the possibility of acne like why would you pay for that thing?
After years of effort fixing my skin, I am finally acne free. My skin is amazing and I only need a little coverage. I totally thought that my skin has reached its peak and I can't be happier. NB: I so thought.
You know when your skin is finally stable and you feel attempted to try new products? That's my case. La Base Pro went on sale a few days ago and I decided to give it a go. Lancome bases are known to be non-comedogenic, and this one is oil-free, so it can't really go wrong. I put a little on my T zone and it glides on feeling like I am putting on some silicone. Okay. This is how primers feel like.
I literally noticed the biggest difference EVER when I put on my foundation that my jaw literally dropped. No joke. That reaction when you found the perfect highlighter that you just went :O. Pores, where are my pores?/ I have no pores LOL!??! I was blending my foundation in and it went on so smooth and perfect. I was sticking my face to the mirror and I couldn't see one pore. My foundation went on streak free and my skin was perfect. And somehow, I only used 3/4 pump of foundation that day instead of the normal 1.5 pumps. I am not sure why, maybe because it looks so nice that you just automatically put on less product? But you still look flawless?

Now I am praying that it would not break me out. Will keep this post updated!

Uhg. I was trying to replace my HG Dior primer since it wasn't available at Ulta and I was shopping with points. This is a total fail for me. My lashes aren't particularly fussy and this weighs them down like crazy and just makes everything a goopey mess. I've tried to let it dry before applying mascara AND applying mascara while this is still wet. Just does not work for my lashes.

Mascara -Lancome -Cils Booster XL

I first tried this back in 2003 and did not like it and gave it a bad review in 2003. I saw it an decided to give it a new review because I have now used this for several years and it's the best I have found.

I was kind of surprised how much I disliked this in 2003 when I first tried it. Perhaps somewhere along the way, they tweaked the formula because I do use it and love it now. Over the years I've tried so many others, hoping to find one that conditioned my lashes and protected them from the harshness of mascara but didn't have the higher price tag. I do notice a marked difference in the health and length of my lashes when I use this. Mascaras can be harsh, some more than others and this seems to protect them from the mascara and also makes my mascara look much better and nicer all day long..

I have yet to find one that I like as much as this although I do think L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer for around $7-8.00 is very close. I do one eye at a time and apply mascara before it dries. Once it dries forget it, it's really hard to apply the mascara then for me.. I love the consistency of this, it coats them quickly and isn't too wet or too dry, I do not like the 25.00 price for 0.14 ounce price. I do think this conditions my lashes and they are much healthier with no breakage. It is white and you can see the white on your lashes, but it disappears once the mascara is on. Some of the cheaper ones from the drugstore I have tried, you could still see the white and it was hard to cover it. I always repurchase this when I run out and I keep a tube of the L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer as a back up.

DESCRIPTION:

Foundations -Lancome -Skin Feels Good Skin Nourishing Foundation

on 1/24/2018 11:13:00 AM

Update: Was going to exchange my shade for one lighter but they are all sold out. All of the colors. I finally got a lighter shade and it is a better match. Used a different primer and I am happier with this TM. This looks pretty good on my face and wears well. I am liking this and it diffuses my lines and texture on my face. The breakouts I was experiencing was from skincare so I am on with this foundation.

I didn't know where to put this new foundation from Lancome. It's sort of a primer, BB cream, TM hybrid. Lancome says it has skin-like properties but I was surprised at how much coverage this offers. I got medium coverage from the get go. It goes on like a liquid powder/primer but it is moisturizing. I bought in 2C because in Lancome colors I'm a buff 220 even though in MAC I'm NC20. It was a decent match.

Unfortunately, even over priming it highlighted my larger wrinkles like my marionette lines. It downplayed my textured skin for a couple of hours but later my face was very glowy and I could see all of my texture. It went on with a skin-like finish but 5 hours in I could feel it on my skin.

It has a sunscreen but it is only octinoxate so pretty useless. I wish it wasn't in there because after I took it off for the night I had some new breakouts. My skin did not like it. It doesn't have a scent. Competitively priced at 38 dollars. Comes in a tube with a pump. I wonder if this is an answer to It CC cream since L'Oreal bought It?

Primer/ Corrector -Lancome -Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Color Corrector

I got this in the yellow colour, hoping that it would colour correct my purple-brown under eyes. I used a very small amount and at first, tried to blend it out using a fluffy eyeshadow brush. That didn't work - this corrector is extremely thick and hard to spread. The consistency is similar to viscous melting glue coming from a hot glue gun (without the stickiness/stringiness). Blending it with a brush just made it patchy and weird. So then I tried to fix that by blending it out with a damp beauty sponge, which didn't really make much of a difference. Okay...

I applied some Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer on top and blended it out with my damp beauty sponge. It was definitely noticeable how this corrector has tinted the concealer yellow, it was clearly peaking through. So I guess nothing can fix this unless I put a ton of concealer on top.

This corrector was taking too much work to be worth it. For the price, I would not recommend.

Mascara -Lancome -Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

on 1/22/2018 7:56:00 PM

Monsieur Big??? More like Sir-Clumps-Alot. This did nothing to lengthen my lashes at all. It gave volume in that it clumped so badly that my eyelashes looked like one big, chubby eyelash, more like a caterpillar actually. It got flaky after a few hours and the flakes got in my tender eyes and turned them red and teary. Those of you who got it to work, God Bless. Won't be switching from my HG L'Oreal Telescopic for this; don't know why I keep trying, "if it works don't fix it" just won't sink into my makeup junkie brain.

Eyeliner -Lancome - Grandiôse Liner

on 1/21/2018 3:41:00 PM

foto

Let’s start off with the fact that I do absolutely LOVE this liner. It goes on evenly and oh so smooth. Perfect cat eye flick every time. My eyes get teary quite a bit and it stays on, yet washes off pretty easy!

This would be my dream liner. Except I’ve had it 15 days and about 7 ago it started acting like it’s dried out. Wtf?? Today it was a battle getting any out. At $32/pop this should definitely last longer. I would have definitely repurchased this-except it would end up being a $70/month eyeliner habit. Hahaha....yeah that feels ridiculous.

If I have a special event I will probably repurchase it-but this is far too spendy to be an everyday liner. If it had been something more affordable I would have tossed it a week ago.

I like this but after it dries down it smells like old wine and cigarettes on me. I can only describe the fragrance as heavy and sweet.
