1. Shu Uemura Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil ($92 CAN): I have been using this cleansing oil every night devotedly to take off any last residue of makeup. It also takes off eye makeup with perfection, so no need to invest in another makeup removal product – this does the job pretty well. No leftover oily residue and skin feels squeaky clean.
Dear concealer, your services are no longer required in the under eye area. Yes, you heard it right, I have said good bye to under eye problems for good. I just had a Eureka! moment today when I was taking pictures for a FOTD, nothing special. I was not wearing under eye concealer, even though I
feel felt that I always need under eye concealer due to prominent dark circles, I tend to skip it because it cakes up and crawls under my laugh lines and baby wrinkles under the eyes. Also, as much as I need needed concealer to hide the heavy discolouration under the eyes, it was just an overall hassle to blend. Anyhow, so the reason behind all this hoopla (or lack thereof) is Lancôme Génifique Eye Light Pearl.
Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Fragrance (to be launched August 2012) is the one for you if you like a sophisticated, feminine scent. I, for one, had fallen for it at the first sniff. The fragrance is a soothing cocktail of Patchouli, Iris Pallida, Sambac Jasmine, Orange Blossom Flower and Gourmand Accord. For me, it translates into a classic day time fragrance.
Oh my gosh, first of all, apologies for posting this review a little late. My nails are not in the best shape possible. Being a seasoned beauty blogger, I have learnt that uneven nail shapes and nail polish posts don’t go hand in hand. As I type this, Lancôme’s website tells me that there are only three of these left online (I’m sure your local counter must have more than that, or let’s hope so). Here I present to you, Lancôme Le Vernis In Love in Jolie Rosalie ($16).
Lancôme’s Summer 2012 Collection is tailored specifically towards the Canadian market. The French giant collaborated with Canadian artist, Corno, to come up with a very special collection. As it is obvious from the picture, I will be talking about the very pink blush from this collection, Blush Subtil in Cosmopolitan Pink ($38 Cdn).
It may be hard to believe, but yes, I am still around! It has been a while since I last spoke about my skin-care – in fact, I never really have in detail. I recently made some changes to my routine, replaced a few items, and added a new item in.
First up is the Origins GinZing Eye Cream – my previous hit in Vasanti Eye Wonder just was not doing it for me any more. I had prevalent dark circles all over again – not fun! So, I decided to mix it up with this one. I have been using this for about two weeks or so now, and its been so far so good! I will post a review when I am ready to review it, I like to take my time with skin care reviews and from what you have seen so far, I only do it when the product is worth an actual review.
Lancome’s newest range of lipsticks are just what the doctor ordered for a lipstick lover. Rouge In Love is the make-up giant’s latest offering and yes, it is quite enough for you to be in love with it. I remember when I was younger, in high school, especially there was nothing more matronly than a lipstick. A lipstick to me symbolized my mom, literally. And we all know that teenagers and moms aren’t always in love; they can happily coexist, at most… So if you could derive, I was anything but in love with lipstick.
Lancome Color Fever Gloss in Green Petal ($31 Cdn) is a sheer, soft green lip gloss from the Roseraie Des Delices (Spring 2012) Collection, out now. Now, I know the combination of green and lip gloss is hard to digest, but looks like Lancome is out to change our perceptions.
Lancome Les Yeux Doux Vert Tendresse ($54 Cdn) is an eyeshadow quad from Lancome’s Spring 2012 Roseraie Les Delices collection. It consists of four gorgeous, pastel green eyeshadows. My initial impression of this was, it is pretty but will I be able to carry this off? Well, sure enough, I am able to carry this off. The shades are mainly pastel-like in tone, but have a slight jewel toned finish so they don’t end up awkward on someone like me who has warm undertones in my skin.
Lancome’s Spring 2012 Collection, Roseraie Des Delices is inspired by the mildness of a sweet spring afternoon, it has its superstar in La Roseraie Blush/Illuminating Powder ($48 Cdn). Just take a look at it, isn’t it just so stunningly delicate?
