Hello Ladies !
After lots of months of constant torture with my laptop i finally splurged and bought a new one, which i adore. Its amazing how much it can change your relationship to your laptop and by that i mean blogging. The truth is with my broken laptop it was so hard for to be organized where as this laptop makes me want to blog or google things all the time. Anyway moving on from my random chat becausei have sooo many things to blog about i have decided to categorize them as much as i can to make things easier and speedier. Today my first category is going to be some Lancome products i have. Do enjoy!
Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H Review
This was one of those foundations i certainly paid the dollar for. It cost me here in Greece 50 euro from Hondos Center. The truth is i found out about this foundation through i sample i received after purchasing their mascara which will be reviewed further down. Mine is in the shade 03 Beige Diaphane which is the perfect shade for me on my non tanned days (Autumn, Winter and Spring).
What i like about this foundation is that it doesnt look too much, it gives me this natural look to my skin thats practically saying. 'Look at my lovely flawless skin'. Dont get me wrong it doesnt cover up fully , i would say the coverage is medium however it does look super fab on your skin. Especially if you are the kind of girl who doesnt have many imperfections but maybe has redness or pigmentation that needs covering up.
Personally the theory of it lasting 24 hours i believe although i havent tested it out and dont think i ever will. This really is however a foundation that doesnt budge, its staying there the way you have applied it all night. It also has spf 15 which is an added bonus and is oil free (great for us oily,acne skin types). The only negative i can think of is the price tag , 50 euro is a lot an average person can buy their whole makeup kit with this kind of money. The truth is though that always splurge on foundation due to the fact i have problematic skin and any time i have opted for a high store brand it has only lead me only to further problems with my skin. The great news is Feel unique has brought this brand to their online shop which means its cheaper and it has free delivery. Bonus!
Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara
In need of a new mascara i decided to go shopping a while back , i did originally want to splurge on YSL or a DIOR (my fave) mascara but sadly found they were sold out. I then decided to get this Lancome Doll Eyes mascara after all the hype i had seen everywhere. I think i got it 30 euro in the sales from Hondos Center.
This mascara has lush packaging, its very luxurious and is comfortable. The curves on the mascara help you get a good grip which is very handy for any of you shakey hands out there. The brush itself is pointy which is good and bad in my opinion. The good is you can use the point to coat lashes that are harder to get to ie inner corner of the eye or bottom. The bad point is it doesnt really provide thickness and volume in my opinion, which is what i didnt like.
This is a great mascara for anyone who doesnt necessarily like to emphasize their eyelashes. I would probably recommend it to someone who is in their 30's and so on. This is really good and combing the eyelashes out and giving the illusion of seperate lashes however in my opinion if theres no thickness and volume its not what im after. I also noticed it smudged a lot which i found really rare considering none of my mascaras do that. Good mascara just not for my needs.
Thats everything from me! Let me know what is your favourite Lancome product and do you like the brand.
