Liquid -Revlon - Skinlights Diffusing Tint [DISCONTINUED]
littlealy 3/7/2004 10:09:00 PM
Though I used this a few times, it's not the best foundation I've ever found. It's a bit too greasy for me, even though I have normal to dry skin. Also the color (Nude) was a bit too dark for me, even though I have medium skin. It would work better for me in the summer only, but then it's hot so it would be sliding off my sweaty face anyway...It's a lose/lose situation. Anyway, I switched to Covergirl Tru Blend and my trusty Max Faxtor foundations (been using MF for years and years) and now my husband uses Revlon Skinlights to cover up the occasional pimple.

A little to bright for my olive skin. Got it in a GWP with 3 other colors, so didn't really pay for it. Will keep it though.

Very pretty smokey color, like the other said. I agree with them. I got this in a GWP.
Have this in Black Mica and love it. Doesn't reflect to the top lid as long as you give it a chance to dry, which is a major complaint of mine when it comes to crayon liners.
I have Strapless and I bought it after a Lancome girl put it on me for a wedding I was in. I lost it that day (who knows where :-( ) but bought it again after going through withdrawal. I think it's a very pretty purplish-pink color and the taste and smell is MUCH better than that of the Rouge Absolu Creme and Rouge Sensation lines. Also looks good under a JT, Simmer in particular.
Lipstick -Lancome - Rouge Absolu Creme in Bordeaux

Only 4 lippies because of the smell and taste, but I do like this for a "show" lipstick because I'm a dancer. When you're on stage you don't have to worry about your lipstick being too dark or red, because people can't see your lips anyway. LOL. Anyway, I bought this after having my makeup done for a wedding where I was wearing a red dress, and this lipstick matched perfectly. I loved the look and wore it all night long. If you wear a red dress for a night on the town, this lipstick is perfect. I have a pic of it in my pics also, if you want to see what it looks like on. Nice coverage, a pretty red.
Lipstick -Lancome - Rouge Absolu Creme in Mauvette

Got this in a GWP...Very pretty purplish-pink color. Nice coverage and feel. Don't like the smell and taste though, so took away one lippy point, but it looks nice so it makes up for its smell. Also, putting a JT over it helps with the taste and smell since the JT smell and taste so good!
I have the following shades:
Henné: Nice coverage, nice color but a little too dark for daytime wear. I work in an office with bright lights, so it's a little too "whoa" for that. It keeps my lips moist and doesn't clump. I think it'd be nice with a brown outfit and neutral makeup for a night out on the town.
Sun Blush: I LOVE this one! I wear it with Simmer JT over top but it's great on its own. It comes off as a shimmery pink with just enough pigment to show up, and not too sheer, which I love. The only thing I don't like is the smell, but that's to be expected with Lancome lipsticks. This color is perfect for everyday and has become my new holy grail of lippies. It also has tiny sparklies to add shimmer.
Mars: (Got this in a GWP) This lippie looks so coppery in the tube but it doesn't come off the slightest bit rusty looking. It is actually slightly orange/red...I don't really know how to describe it. JT in Hot Cider spices it up though, but I wouldn't wear this during the day to the office. It's a little too bright for me but does have some tiny sparklies.
I fell in love with Simmer today. I tried it out when I was having my makeup done for a wedding and almost bought it and thought about it since June and finally decided to break down and get it, since Lancome has an awesome GWP out now. I love it's shiny nude look, and currently I'm wearing it over Rouge Sensation in Sun Blush. I love the look, it's going to become my Holy Grail I think. I'll post a pic of it on when I get a chance. The only reason I gave it 4 lippies as opposed to 5 is because it is pricey ($15.50) and they didn't fill up the bottle very far. I put it up next to one of the smaller JT versions that I got with a gift set and they had about the same amount of gloss in them. Oh and I love the smell!
Lip Gloss -Lancome - Jolly Juices (Holiday Juicy Tubes Set 2003)

I just bought these to get the free Lancome gift that my local Dillard's offers. I think 5 for $35 was a good steal, however I thought they were full-size. I should have paid more attention. Oh well, I second what everyone said about them, they are nice and shiny, and I'm wearing Joyeaux now, with my baby blue sweater. I like its smell a lot. I also liked hot cider and candy cane.
I hate these strips. The worst part about them strips is when I take it off, part of it sticks so good that it welds itself to my nose, forcing me to scrub my nose afterward. I never see any blackheads on the strip, and when I look in the mirror, OH what a shock! The blackheads are STILL there! What a waste of money.
I liked this foot cream, but the smell isn't that great. It smells medicated.
I wish I would have read the reviews before buying this. It's goopy and you have to scoop it out with your hand and it gets all over the shower. I had orange globs of goo all over the place. It doesn't spread or scrub well. I wasn't very satisfied and wish I could return it. Oh, and the smell isn't that great either.
This lippie tastes and smells AWFUL! I like how it looks but I can't stand anything else about it. I never wear it anymore. Oh, I have it in Hustle, BTW.
I have these in Midnight Jazz, a dark shade almost black with glitter in it, Disco Ball, a beautiful silvery shade, and Pistachio, a light green shade. I absolutely LOVE Midnight Jazz for the smokey eye look. It looks perfect. Disco Ball is also a huge staple of my makeup because it is so versatile and lasts forever!! I think I'll die if they ever stop selling Disco Ball.
