Lipstick -Lancome - Rouge Absolu Creme in Bordeaux

I basically wear only red shades on my lips (I'm a blonde PPP), and this is the best red lipstick ever! Perfect full red color - not too dark, not too bright, with golden shimmer, so it's more of an evening color. Staying power is really good, too. Imagine O all grown up and dressed to kill. I received it as an extra from a wonderful swapper and was amazed I had never noticed it before. When it's gone I will definitely be running out to buy it again.
This is practically a miracle cream for me! My 30-something skin can only be described as dry with frequent breakouts. This stuff smooths my face, softens my skin, and it really helps prevent and diminish breakouts - I have much, much clearer skin since I started using this. I've been through several gwp bottles, purchased the extra-large size and used it up, and I'll happily buy another when this last gwp size runs out.
Love it, love it, love it. Taupe is absolutely the perfect match for my dark blonde hair, and it blends in beautifully. A little pricey, but it's an HG product.

It's not super-hydrating like a mask should be. It's rich enough to use as a nighttime moisturizer, but it's nothing special. I'll finish the tube I bought but I doubt I'd repurchase it.

Great cleanser! I like to rinse with water and this does not dry out my already dry skin. Gentle enough to remove even mascara without irritating my sensitive eyes. EDIT: After almost finishing the bottle, it has started to irritate my eyes, so I'm back to make-up remover. Still love the cleanser, just not on my eyes.
I use this as a night cream and it is fantastic!! Nicely moisturizing for my dry skin, and does not break me out (unlike every single drugstore brand). It's an average price for a department store moisturizer. Might not be good if you're sensitive to fragrance, but I like it.
