Review: Lancome L’Absolu Rouge and Creme de Brillance in 395 Rose Grenat

I’m not much of a Lancome person. My skin doesn’t really agree with Lancome skincare, or rather, Lancome doesn’t do much for my skin. I really like Lancome’s foundations, but only those made in Japan because the shade match is awesome – specially tailored for Asian skin tones. Then the rest, they’re not mind blowing and I just never really had a strong urge to really give the brand a chance. I picked these up about a year ago, because I was drawn to the shade. I think these are the only 2 Lancome lip products I ever purchased and kept. I bring you shade 395, Rose Grenat.

Project Make A Dent #2

It’s been a while since I followed up with this Project Make A Dent. If you missed the first one, or if you don’t know what this is about, please click here where I explained it. For the first project, I cheated by using up all products close to finishing. I’m happy to report they were all gone in a couple of months. So now, I want to pick some other stuff, either to use up, or to really make a dent in it.

Femme Boulevard: Vamp

It’s still end of July, and in some places, it’s still summer, and in others, it’s winter. We decided to do something different, and by that, we’re feeling vampy. The first thing I thought of was to pull out my darker lipsticks. How exciting :-) Then, I was debating whether to keep my eyes minimal, or to go all out dark. I haven’t been playing much with eye shadows for a few months now, and I took this opportunity to actually use some of my eye shadows! Dark eyes it is. I was going to use black only but….. it kinda got out of hand. Heh!

For the base, I wanted something flawless, so I used my newly purchased Lancome Blanc Miracle SPF50 liquid foundation, set with my well loved Lancome Maqui Blanc Miracle powder foundation. To avoid looking like a goth, I added some pink using Dior Rosy Glow blush.

Tagged! 5 Makeup Products I’d Pick In A Pinch

Tagged, I’m it! Tracy caught me! This is my first tag post, actually, and I thought it might be fun doing it. The tag is of course the said title, 5 makeup products I’d pick in a pinch. It’s quite hard to pick just 5 you know… on a daily basis, I already use 2-3 products just for base! So in the end, I will probably show you products that multi task!
