Complete waste of money.Using it up on my neck now and even then it's making my eyes burn due to the strong fragrance. it gets everywhere. Leaves a silicone film on skin that rubs off. Wish i could get a refund.

Palettes -Lancôme -Les Toppings Eye Sugar Palette

foto

The Les Toppings Eye Sugar Palette is part of Lancôme's Spring 2018 makeup collection and consists of 5 iridescent shades, 3 matte shades, 2 ultra sparkly shades.
The palette itself is on the smaller size and still managed to include a mirror and a dual-ended brush, which makes it travel friendly. Also, the eyeshadow brush is very soft as well. As for the shadows themselves, they are very soft and creamy to the touch and when applied to the eyes they blend very nicely and have very good pigmentation.
I think this is a beautiful eyeshadow palette that is perfect for spring or just for a colorful and fun look. The only downside that I have with this product is that it is rather expensive.

Pros: Travel friendly, Pigmented. Blends easily, Beautiful color selection.

Cons: Expensive ($59).

I go into greater detail about this product and also show swatches in my review video:

Concealers -Lancôme -Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer

on 6/17/2018 11:36:00 AM

foto

I've given up on undereye concealers since my early thirties because they didn't make me look better. I'm 41 now and the only thing that was allowed to brighten up my dark circles up to now is YSL's Touche Eclat Nr. 1 or Lancome's Teint Miracle Foundation that is light and moisturizing enough. When I heard a youtuber recommend this concealer for "mature" skin I was skeptical at first but now I'm happy to report that this really is a fantastic concealer that's high coverage but moisturizing without being greasy.
It feels like a silky gel but fortunately not like silicone, it's difficult to explain, it feels protective. This performed well during the entire day and didn't crease or settle in fine lines. I also used it as a primer for my eyelids and it did a fantastic job in making the skin look luminous and naturally perfect.
Strangely enough, I have it in Nr. 1 which is a very light but flattering slightly peachy light rose colour and it adapts to my NC 25 skin so well that I was quite surprised. I set it with Laura Merciers secret brightening powder but I'd say that every finely milled powder should work with it.
The most important part is to find the right colour - you really have to apply it to decide which one suits your skin best.

Mascara -Lancôme -Monsieur Big Waterproof

This review is for the Monsieur Big Waterproof mascara by Lancome. I got a sample from Sephora. Even though the formula is waterproof, it gave me racoon eyes after 5 hours. A very disappointing product.

Eye Makeup Remover -Lancôme -Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

foto

It's not very often I come across an eye makeup remover that does the trick for sensitive eyes, but this is one of them. Using a cotton pad I'm able to remove all traces of eye makeup, usually with no more than a couple of sweeps and no stinging! Also leaves the eye area lightly moisturized, but yet not oily. The only downside is when travelling the bottle leaks, which is why I transfer to a small leakproof travel bottle if I'm out of town, as that's the only way to keep it from spilling everywhere. I tend to purchase this during holiday promotions as you can sometimes pick up a double pack that saves money.

Mascara -Lancôme -Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

on 6/16/2018 3:04:00 AM

My HG mascara; on my third tube! I love dramatic lashes, long and thick, but not clumped. I thought Lancôme Hypnose Doll or Grandiose were the best until I tried Monsieur Big. Without a primer, I get full, long lashes; with Lancome primer, I just about get the same appearance as when I had lash extensions (been using generic Latisse for years). My lashes are stick straight so an eyelash curler is a must - they stay in place with this mascara, no flaking or smudging. Can’t wait for some additional colors to be added.

there ok, found it pretty sheer, thick and sticky


Foundations -Lancôme -Teint Idole Ultra Cushion

I really like how this foundation looks on my skin, however it took a bit of getting used to when applying.
Initially I used the puff that came with the cushion foundation. Using the puff to pat on the product it was very patchy so I then used my foundation brush to tidy it up. Subsequently I have always used a brush and to be honest probably should have got the non cushion version of the foundation.


Sunscreen -Lancôme -UV Expert SPF 50

on 6/14/2018 2:02:00 AM

I got aqua gel 50 which was in a yellowish gel(there was another one which was gray and a bb-cream type). I tried it in duty free before and liked the appearance on my face with the overdewy appearance, the texture which was thin and moisturizing, non-sticky. Unfortunately, it is full of parabens and alcohols. There is literally no skin-beneficial ingredient aside aqua... and it is proced with 50+eur... what a joke. For such price I’d expect a sunscreen that would be free of any skin-irritants and cancerous ingredients and has some antioxidants. I could find such a product in Asian market for under 15€. Talk about branding...


Lipstick -Lancôme -Matte Shaker - All

I never write reviews but this little beauty changed everything.
Beside the staying power this thing delivers everything I've ever dreamed of. My lips instantly feel plumped, soft and beautiful upon applying and it never dries them out(I usually have chapped lips). The color is not as dark as the bottle and not very pigmented (that's a plus for me) but it looks very natural and pretty.
This matte liquid lipstick is the best I've tried so far, and trust me... I've tried them ALL (huda beauty, kylie, too faced, the balm, stila, ciate, gerard, lime crime and sooo many more.)
I currently own it in 5 shades : plum plum girl, redy in 5, kiss me cherie , magenta and pink power and am planning to buy more. My favorite would be the plum one and redy in five.
I would definitely recommend this if u like natural soft looking lips and u don't mind the staying power.(though it stains a bit after fading)


Mascara -Lancôme -Hypnose Doll Lashes

on 6/11/2018 12:34:00 AM

It's a jet black, not clumpy mascara, which sets your lashes perfectly separated. It doesn't make them look thicker or longer, just "open" them like a wing...
The packaging is nice, the product is fragrance free, I use contact lenses and it's ok...
Lancôme´s mascaras are my favourite, but among them, my favourite is still Virtuôse...and Eternicils maybe... I don't see Doll Eyes as perfect as it claims...but I would buy it again (if it's not discontinued) because I like the effect and the colour...

After using this product I felt my skin purified and pampered, being very gentle. I buy it as soon as I run out of it and I always recommend it being the first product that I use in the morning. My favorite cleanser.


Foundations -Lancôme -Skin Feels Good Skin Nourishing Foundation

on 6/9/2018 11:26:00 PM

I love this tinted moisturizer!! I just about gave up when Nars’ broke me out and provided little to no coverage, but this was GREAT! It provides medium-ish coverage (enough to even out my skin tone beautifully), smells REALLY good, and lasts a good while!! I mainly use this for lazy days or during this summer because it’s so darn hot outside (sunscreen in it is an added bonus). I expected the price to be higher considering it’s Lancôme but I was pleasantly surprised plus it comes with a pump on this cute bottle. Pros: Great coverage for evening out skintone, smells good, lightweight (can’t feel it on my face), and moisturizing! I can also use my sponge with this product comfortably! Cons: I have dry/combo skin so I have to be careful with the amount of moisturizer I use underneath or I look more greasy than fresh & dewy! The shade range is a bit limited but tinted moisturizers can suit a myriad of different skin tones near/under the same shade spectrum!

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

This foundation is a huge winner for me! My shade is Beige Porcelaine 010, though 011 and 01 are both passable shades for me also. There is a wide variety of shades with both cool, warm and neutral undertones in this line, which is great. I find that this foundation is medium to full coverage, depending on how much I apply. It applies easily and smoothly with a soft kabuki brush. It looks flawless and natural on the skin, seamlessly blended rather than looking like a mask. It lasts on the skin all day, even in hot, humid and rainy weather. It doesn’t smudge or seperate. It is transfer-proof also. This is an absolutely gorgeous foundation, I am so glad I have it in my collection and will be definitely repurchasing. It is a go-to for me.
