15 Best Lancome Products
Lancome’s Gift with Purchase time is upon us so I thought we’d talk fave Lancome products. For the fall 2015 GWP promotion receive a 7-piece gift (worth ~$155) with any $39.50+ Lancome purchase at Bloomingdales.com! Ends 10/20. Gift with purchase time at the cosmetic counter is a win win situation. You basically buy a single product and get a bag full of free products to try. No question that this is a perfect opportunity to share my opinion on what floats my boat at the Lancome counter. Lancome is one of my all time favorite brands and there are SOOOOOOOOOOOO many things they make that I love…believe me…so much makeup not enough dollars…le sigh. They are an awesome company and this article does not imply that any product not mentioned here is no good however, these are the products that I’ve tried that really worked out for me that I go back for again and again. All products mentioned here are all Lancome products that I really use and love! If you join the Bloomingdale’s Loyalist program you will get free shipping on every order so great reason to sign up. No worries if you are wondering, yes, The program is free to join and like most rewards programs, you will earn points that convert to dollar amounts for shopping later on. This will come in handy for the holidays. You will need to check out the Bloomingdale’s web site for additional details on Loyalist program specifics. I am not employed by Bloomingdale’s or Lancome. This post contains my sincere opinion 🙂
Teint Idole by Lancome has an amazing range of colors that are true to skin tone for women of every ethnicity. Lancome has deep, rich hues for dark skinned goddesses and very light shades for the fair skinned lovelies, as well as a nice assortment of mid range tones for our olive and tanned beauties. The Teint Idole line of foundations is also amazing because of its long wear capability. If you have read my Foundation Basics series of articles then you know I love a good long wear foundation that requires no touch ups during the day. This product delivers!
Hypnose Doll Lashes by Lancome is the fleekness. There are a few imitators out there but this is the KING. I use a lot of different mascaras. Some expensive, some cheap…but this one is my go to for sex bomb, luscious lashes. Seriously this mascara is wicked good. The only thing you need to be careful not to go crazy because the formula is so thick it could cake and flake on you. Two coats will give you the effect you need.
Lancome’s High Resolution Refill-3x IS MY FAVORITE MOISTURIZER OF ALL TIME. This moisturizer boosts the skin’s natural fillers – collagen, hyalauronic acis and elastin which signifies the 3x. I actually had a very stubborn set of wrinkles. you know when you start getting those #11’s popping up???!!! It was terrible. Anyhow, I happened to be working solely in cosmetics at the time and was trying all kinds of products to fix it – NOTHING…I repeat NOTHING WORKED 😦 😦 so I started using this moisturizer High Resolution Refill – 3x by Lancome and within a few weeks the lines were gone…They have not returned either. This stuff is voodoo magic in a jar and I tell everyone this story when they ask about skincare. Some are skeptical but I would not lie to you…its true!!!
Genifique from Lancome is like a Hall of Fame type product. For youthful bright skin. Grab up this stuff. I love to use this product. I recommend it and during my time behind the counter I have heard nothing but rave reviews from customers about it. As with any serum the payoff is with long term use. But if you are looking for a product that can brighten, hydrate and improve the over all look of your skin, do give this a go. I like a good drugstore product and saving a few bucks when I can but cancel christmas on that one ladies. You WILL NOT find a product of this caliber in your drugstore…point blank, period. #sorry notsorry
I am a stan for Lancome eyeshadows especially the Color Design Eyeshadow Quads. The pigment is so high and they are super duper creamy. When you touch the shadow you can see a little fingerprint impression…like I said creamy. They don’t really crumble and are NEVER powdery. Yes we know Lancome is a touch on the expensive side. However, the what they charge for their products is justified in my mind. Its just the best quality pretty much across the board. I have never had a lancome eyeshadow crumble and break on me yet. All of you girls who live at the MAC counter because you want top of the line, take a walk across the aisle and check out some of the fine goods at the Lancome counter. These palettes are awesome because they give you ideas of how to apply the colors on the packaging and an awesome cake liner comes with the product. So guess what it isnt even really a quad. There are 5 products in there!!!! It truly is a terrific value for what you actually receive.
Lancome Definicils Precious Cells Mascara is the game changer for those with sparse lashes. This mascara is incredible because is actually has a lash primer and conditioner built into the formula that will help to regenerate the condition of your lashes creating thicker and more dense lashes. i really do love this product. Its a great all around mascara and for those who don’t have thick long lashes the brush isn’t too large leaving you with clean up post application. There is an exclusive place in my heart for products that are multi-purpose and do more than one thing. I feel like I’m getting a lot more for my money.
Love me some Lancome Juicy Tubes. These are such fun glosses with a lovely range of colors and flavors and scents. The shine pay off is amazing also. I love when Lancome has their special edition Juicy Tubes. You can usually get those special release tubes around holidays or GWP time. if you are a girl like me then ou believe there can never be too much glitter, then try the Lancome Juicy Tubes Jelly Ultra Shine with shimmer added for some sparkle on top of your pop. Also, Juicy Tubes Gift Sets are available with 4 in the set. They make amazing gifts or stocking stuffers. I must advise that these glosses have a sticky consistency so if you aren’t a fan of that then be advised. I personally not only domt mind it but kinda like it. I like to know my product is there. If you are a lip gloss junkie across the board and aren’t up on these I urge you get familiar.
Bi-facil by Lancome is a great makeup remover by all accounts. Really gentle on the skin it doesn’t leave you feeling dry or greasy. A little goes a long way. Even removes that tough to take off waterproof stuff. Great for folks with sensitive eyes. Terrific value for cost in this generous sized bottle.
The Le Stylo Waterproof Eye Pencil from Lancome is a must have for a make up artist or the every day woman who is a beauty lover and her own makeup artist. You cant go wrong with this waterproof pencil available in a wide range of shade options and precise application. Doesnt skip or smudge and never needs sharpening!!! Too awesome people.
Lancome’s Dual finish Versatile Foundation Powder can be used wet with a damp sponge for full coverage or with a dry sponge for lighter coverage…So genius!!!! Again, Lancome has a great range of shade options for all ethnicities. Great product to keep in the purse because you can use it different ways and its compact. True to skin finish and buildable coverage for options on top of options is a major plus. Not cakey or orange, just gorgeous.
Lancome Subtil Blush Trio applies to the skin beautifully. Its a highly pigmented blush. No, well actually its a highlighter…no wait its a bronzer…just kidding…yes its all 3!!! All three in one compact. The awesome thing is that the bronzer and highlighter shades are color matched to complement each other. Well done Lancome!
Lancome has 7 shades of Star Bronzer available currently and they are so beautiful. Some of the best bronzers on the market. I have a few faves. Star Bronzer by Lancome is in my top 3 favorite bronzers of all time. I just love a product that works for just about anyone.
Lancome Genifique Eye is as wonderful a product as the classic serum. Its basically the serum combined with an eye cream. They also have Genifique skin cream also with the serum combined with moisturizer. great product to add to your skin care routine.
I am such an addict for Lancome Nutrix Royal Body Cream. Nutrix smells sooooooooo good! It lasts forever because it goes such a long way and it is soooo hydrating. I just love this cream in the winter and my skin loves this product. My skin just glows. Its ALWAYS in my cabinet. Once you start using this product I guarantee you will become #obsessed.
Lancome Rouge in Love stole my heart. This is truly, one of my fave lipsticks, long lasting, bright colors and matte finish. The Violette Coquette gives me life!!!
