I am late to the Lancôme party – but it’s better to arrive late then to not arrive at all. As this is the beginning of my Lancôme collection, I have a few pieces from each section, that have quickly made their way into my makeup bag. From vibrant lips to highlighted cheeks to the silky smooth magic that is behind their skin care range.
Lancôme Matte Shaker – Pink Power
If you haven’t seen a Lancôme Matte Shaker where have you been? This little shaker has been splashed across our instagram in every flatlay and Facebook post. I am an avid fan of matte lipsticks, but not a fan of the drying effect it leaves on my lips usually. This matte shaker applies so smoothly and moisturising as if like a lip gloss. Within a few seconds it dries into a silky smooth matte finish that I find very comfortable to wear. I have found this Matte Shaker to be extremely long lasting. I apply it in the morning and will reapply after lunch. When it did begin to wear off, it didn’t flake or crack – it simply just faded into a lighter shade.
Lancôme Multi – Function Foundation Brush
This synthetic bristled brush is a versatile foundation brush to use with all formulations, liquids, cream or powder foundations. I have been using this to apply my liquid foundation. I find that these bristles pick up the product evenly and effortlessly, giving me a professional makeup Artist finish. This brush is a rose petal shaped brush with a short handle, making application very controlled. This size is perfect to keep in your handbag or for travelling.
Lancôme Blush Subtil creme – Je M’appelle Rose 04
This limited edition blush is simple delightful! It is packaged in a pretty pink circular pot. It has a soft mousse consistency. This blush is perfect to add a healthy glow to your skin. I like to apply this blush to the apples of my cheeks. I love that, not only does it add a subtle rose shade to my cheeks but also a luminous highlight.
LANCôME DE Vie Nuit
Lancôme have launched their Energie De Vie collection. This collection is to hydrate your skin and tackle signs of fatigue. This overnight recovery mask provided pretty much immediate results. I cannot express how good this product is. I watched my skin transform right in front of my eyes. While using this product my skin was at the most healthiest and luminous I have ever seen it. My pores were reduced in size and my skin tone was visibly more even. ( I didn’t think my skin could ever even look like this.) This mask has two options. You can apply it at night for ten mins and rinse it off or simply leave it on overnight. I left mine on overnight each time I used it, as it honestly felt too nice to wash off . It felt like rubbing the smoothest of silk onto my skin. It absorbed within seconds leaving my skin smoother than a baby’s bottom. My skin felt and looked glowy and dewy. ( This was from the first use!) In the morning I simple cleansed my face as usual – I was in love with the results. This is one of the best night creams I have ever used, and will definitely be repurchasing! If you are looking to step up your skincare routine, I would begin with this night cream – you can thank me later.
