This day started out as kind of a best because I had to work on a Sunday morning which was a huge buzzkill. Not because it was a weekend morning, but missing church is really hard for me because it’s the highlight of my week.

Even so, I plowed through my emotions and used the opportunity to try a new brand in Lancome. While I have used certain products before, most of the line was new for me. In the past, I’ve used the Teint Idole liquid foundation and the Hypnose mascara because I heard it’s what Kim Kardashian uses. This was before I realized that fake lashes are a real phenomenon and I will never look like Kim Kardashian.

Let’s get into it.

Products Used

Visionnaire 1-Minute Blur

I don’t know if my imperfections and pores are just too large to be blurred or if all these products are liars, but I saw no blurring on my skin. Saying that as you can deduce, I never see any blurring effects and it’s sad because I want my pores to disappear. It did, however, feel very nice and create a nice base for my makeup.

Miracle CC Cushion, Yellow 02

Someone used this one me during one of my trainings and I really love it as a color corrector. It does a great job of eliminating minor redness and is lighter and easier to blend than some other formulas.

Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick SPF 21, 110 Ivoire C

Many of my coworkers like this as their favorite foundation, or favorite stick foundation if nothing else. My entire complexion looked nice after Lancome, and while I don’t think it’s my favorite, I liked the blendability and coverage.

Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Concealer, 090 Ivoire N

I was really tired and sad this morning and this concealer + foundation helped remind my face I was actually alive, which is nice.

Les Sourcils Definis, 106 Dark Brown

The product itself wasn’t bad, but ‘dark brown’ is a stretch.

Star Bronzer Magic Bronzing Brush

Ugh, I didn’t like this at all. It was weird and I ended up putting too much on my forehead and it was very orange.

Blush Subtil, 373 Aplum

This was nice as well. Nothing much more to say.

Click & Glow Highlighting Skin Fluid, Lumieres Roses

I really don’t like liquid highlighters. This one wasn’t bad, but it definitely wasn’t my favorite that I’ve used.

Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palette, Taupe Craze

I’ve probably talked about this before, but I hate eyeshadows that aren’t in full palettes or in singles. Five is not enough. I mean I know technically it’s a full eye look BUT I WANT MORE. They were nice and I actually didn’t mind the eye look until I ruined it with the next step.

Drama Liquid-Pencil Longer Eyeliner, Brique & Cote D’Azur

Lancome is known for these nice eyeliners and even though I’m a liquid kind of girl I thought why not. I used a red and blue one because it was so close to the Fourth of July, but it wasn’t good. I won’t blame the product for this because it’s more likely it was my complete inability to use pencil eyeliners.

Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base

This was a mascara primer ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Definicils High Definiton Mascara

I’ve used a few of the Hypnose mascaras before and tried the Definicils. I have no real complaints about the product, but it didn’t provide as much drama as I like.

Matte Shaker High Pigment Liquid Lipstick, 189 Red’y in 5

This may have been my favorite part of the look. I like this formula a lot. It’s matte, but not complete so it looks really nice on the lips. The applicator is weird and the product itself is flammable when liquid so there are some negatives, but I would definitely try it again.
