Amazing product...I flat-iron my fine hair at least 4-5 times a week, bleach it every 3 months...so you can imagine the potential damage. But this cream makes my hair so soft and silky. I apply shu uemura essence absolu and the Nectar Thermique before blow-drying and both products have transformed my hair. Have just ran out of bottle #2 and am definately re-purchasing!
the first few times I applied this foundation I was a bit "meh"...wasn't sure what all the hype was about. However, a week or so into using it and I now love it...it makes my skin look flawless but it's lightweight enough that it's not obvious I'm wearing foundation. I do wish it was a bit more moisturizing...as my skin is normal to dry (it's less moisturizing than Bobbi Brown's skin foundation so hence the 4 lippies). I use a good moisturizer beforehand which helps the foundation go on smooth and flake-free. The regular vitlumiere foundation is more moisturizing I believe but not as lightweight as the vitalumiere aqua... I prefer lightweight foundations since they look more natural. This foundation may not work for those with really dry skin. Fingers crossed it holds up during the winter months! I'm super-fair and the B10 shade is a perfect match.
This is probably the best lip balm I've ever used. It keeps my lips, which have a tendency to flake, super soft and hydrated.
I absolutely love this product! I have superfair skin, so most blushes are too dark on me, or too obvious. Miel glace is a perfect shade and hard to overdo. Whenever I apply in the morning, it stays on perfectly until I wash off at night. I've tried many blushes from brands such as dior, elizabeth arden, estee lauder, smashbox, etc, but the Lancome has the best staying power by far!

I've heard lots of good things about this product. However, I didn't have any luck. It flakes easily and I have raccoon eyes an hour or so after applying. Lancome defincils remains the best mascara I've ever tried, which I will continue to use.
Terrible mascara for the price! Clumps easily and I had raccoon eyes every time I used it. Pay the extra dollar or 2 and buy the Lancome defincils...it's the best mascara I've tried, no flaking or clumping, and no raccoon eyes!
Excellent concealer. I use it every morning and it really helps to cover up my undereye circles and brighten the eye area. Lasts all day which is a big plus. Will definately re-purchase.
I can't live without this product. In the summer with the humidity my naturally wavy hair gets "fluffy" and frizzy in the evenings no matter how well I straighten it. However, since I started using essence absolue before blow-drying, my hair has stayed smooth and frizz-free. It's also helped my fine hair stay healthy, even though I straighten and bleach it. It's pricy at about $65 CAD but I bought a bottle about a year ago, use it every second day, and I still have about a 1/3 of the product left. Will definately re-purchase over and over!!
Amazing bronzer! I have superfair skin and Guerlain's regular bronzer in its lightest shade is too dark for me. But a light application of the Blondes bronzer looks natural and lasts all day....will definately re-purchase.
