(shade 04) It's a nice concealer to make areas on the face lighter. It's not best for under eyes though, but to make areas on the face look a bit lighter such as around the mouth on odd occasions when it looks a bit darker than the rest of the face. It's really good for that but cannot be used on it own, but when applied on top of foundation this will allow a better coverage of the concealer to work on.
I remember really loving this mascara when I first brought it, but then it wasn't so good half way through..just didn't keep my curl of the lashes when I tried building it up. The maybelline collosal cat eyes mascara had a better effect than this. It's an alright mascara but nothing special

It's a good mascara but not the best. Definetely separates the lashes and makes it long but nothing really special. Defo keeps the curl of the lashes last all day. I've noticed when I use this before I apply my false lashes, I don't need to apply the mascara again because it just looks flawless and keeps it's position.
I wasn't planning on buying this but was just sold on the spot to me whilst shopping at Selfridges&co. Very happy with the purchase. Feels amazing on the skin! If applied sparingly in long strokes, it creates a seemless finish. Just makes your face feel so smooth! Not sure whether it keeps my make up stay in place all day. Definitely doesn't as I still need to touch up once or twice at least however I'm sure if I try different methods applying foundation, it may result an even more better long lasting finish.

Its reasonably good. Helps my foundation to last longer and feels really good on the skin. It doesn't have a major difference on the size of pores but there is a noticeable difference.

(shade 02- light medium) It's actually amazing. Blends so nicely on top of foundation and it doesnt cake if you were to put concealer first and then foundation on top. I love putting it under my eyes, just brings a lift to my face.

I actually love this concealer. Covers major pigments! It doesn't match my skin colour as I mix it with another concealer (clinique line smoothing/estee lauder double wear concealer). I love mixing it as it just feels so nice on my skin and I feel confident knowing I won't break out it. The days I know I'm gonna have spots coming, I use this concealer and it just helps it.
The concealer doesn't break me out and feels nice on the skin. Able to hide most of my acne scars with it, but it's not full coverage. Nice for the under eyes as well.
Yeah this was a really good foundation! Probably the best drugstore foundation I've brought. It looked amazing especially when you've been in the rain! Makes the foundation look really nice so defo weather friendly :L Lasting power is good. Would defo like to purchase it again

I cant even remember why I brought this foundation! I dont use it much at all and it doesnt last very long on my face. I use it on very rare occassions when I can be asked to highlight my face, using a lighter colour on my cheeks which creates a lovely luminousity. But the smell of the product kinda makes my face itchy so I stoppped using it. It's like a strong scented powdery smell...I havent tried using the foundation on it's own because I can just imagine it sliding of my face within an hour as it did on a small section on my face. Packaging is cute, but not very hygenic cos the foundation is always exposed. Would be handy if there was something to cover it.

(shade 04) There was a time where I loved this foundation. Beautiful coverage. However, i always use to wear this on top of another foundation which gave a beautiful glow to my face! I tried wearing it just on it's own and didn't last on my face for an hour..and my face isn't that oily! It does look really nice on the skin though. I've been told this has been discontinued and theyre making another version..hopefully a longer lasting version

(shade 05) It defo keeps my skin calm..however I wouldnt just wear the foundation itself. It doesnt provide the best coverage for acne skin. It caked up on my face and just didn't look really nice :S however, I did want to still use the foundation so there was a time where I would wear this foundation underneath and wear another brand ontop but lightly..because the salicylic acid in the foundation helped treat my skin which I liked. But I wouuldnt recommend that method, I was trying to experiment different ways :L
(shade 06- honey) It's a really nice foundation but the lasting power isnt so great. Just looks kinda crap throughout the day and need to constantly touch up. The colour matched to me was a bit too dark, but I guess I can use it in the summer but it'll still look a tad dark. However, the foundation DOES actually improve your skin tone..I did wear it religiously for a good month I think..and did notice my acne scars fading a BIT..but I was REALLY happy with it! :) Nice range of colours, only problem is the lasting power.
Liquid -Lancome - Teint Idole ULTRA [DISCONTINUED]

(shade 04) When I first brought the foundation I really liked it, people didn't even realise I wore foundation! Which is so bizarrre to me because I have acne! It looked to flawless on my skin..but I did need to put on a minimum of two pumps for a faiirly good coverage. But I noticed the foundation use to oxidise throughout the day which I have never experianced before. I prefer the new one, Lancome teint idole ultre 24HR much more than this..packaging is pretty :)
(colour- 04- beige) It's an OK foundation, coverage much less than Matt lumiere..obviously this foundation has discontinued..but it was a fairly good product..may need to use it a bit more and see how to work with it. Might purchase the perfection lumiere to see how that performs.
