SPRING BEAUTY REFRESH WITH LANCOME


Its time to Refresh your Beauty game this Spring. When we do away with the heavier knits and reach out for lighter layers and all things blush in our closet, aren't we also changing up our Make Up items on rotation. Yes, we are. The berry tones, and festive reds, make away to corals and pretty pinks. Huge Thank you to Lancome and Influenster for sending me a handful of new Beauty Products to try out. And the timing could not be more right. This came in right when I was getting ready for Kansas City fashion Week. For those of you who are unaware, I go to KCFW as Official Media, and it seemed to be the right occasion to put the new products to test. What better than the Red Carpet,right!
I must add that its always great to work with Lancome. Last Fall, I had collaborated with Lancome and Macy's to bring for you, the Lancome Fall Beauty Refresh . If you want to read about it, then click Here. The fact that I am such a big fan of Lisa Eldridge, makes it an even sweeter deal.


I received Lancome Teinte Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick SPF 21, Lancome Teinte Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Concealer, Lancome Click & Glow Highlighting Skin Fluid , Lancome Le Metallique Lip Lacquer . I must say, Influenster and Lancome had me covered. The essentials were there. Now to get to work, and try them out. I tried the products for a few different occasions, and then decided to pen down my thoughts.

I used all four products, to create a Fresh Spring Look, which you can see in the pictures. I skipped Eye shadow altogether, and concentrated on the highlight and metallic lips. Its a great look, for your Easter lunch or a Sunday Brunch. I would prefer to use the products, as my daywear make up.



Now lets get down to the Individual Reviews. Let me begin with my favorite product from the stash. Lancome Click & Glow Highlighting Skin Fluid. I received it in the shade Lumieres D' Or (Warm Gold) which is their lightest shade. As the name suggests, the product is dispensed when you click on the dispenser. It has a foam applicator , which you can use to apply the highlighter. Blend the product with feathery strokes with your fingers, or you can use a damp Beauty Blender. It gives off a subtle glow, which makes it perfect for use during the day. If you are using it at night, or a Red Carper event, I would suggest building up the product. I am pale with a warm undertone, so the shade which they sent me, was a good compliment, with its Golden Pearl accents. Its great to throw in your travel make up bag, as it has a linear plastic packaging. I loved the color payoff and the ease with which I could use it.



I am a Lip product junkie. You could call me a Lipstick hoarder too. So its always exciting to try out a new product. Lancome Le Metallique Lip Lacquer brought back memories of my younger years. I received it in the shade 09 Mirrored Nude . its one of their new shades for 2017. Almost a decade or so back, I used to big with glosses. Then I completely stopped using them, and found my love in Matte Lipsticks. As the name suggests, its a metallic lip gloss, which claims to have a 3D shine. The shine is unmistakable. The color sent to me, was a pale bluish pink, and I have thing for blue toned lip colors, if that isnt obvious by now. I used a pink lipliner, as I didnt want the color to bleed. Its that sticky glossy feel, and my curly hair flies into it, and sticks to it, when the wind isnt my best friend. I liked the initial color pay off. Its absolutely a daytime color or can be used on top of a darker color of lipstick. Its not long wearing, but then usually glosses are not. If you are looking for a pale pink or nude lip gloss or liquid lipstick which doesnt wash you out, this would be a good one to try out.

Now for the Base Makeup. Lets start with the foundation. I have dry skin and usually always use liquid foundation. Lancome Teinte Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation Stick SPF 21 is a stick foundation as the name suggests. My first problem is that , the shade sent to me, wasnt a perfect color match. I received the shade 410 Bisque(Warm) It was a shade darker than my current color. However, the product itself was quite good. I used the stick to directly apply a few stripes on my face. As it claims, the product glides on like a dream. It was creamy, and nowhere was it matte. Thats always good for someone with super dry skin like me. I used a flat foundation brush to blend the product and finally went over it with a wet Beauty Blender. It was very easy to blend the product. The product stayed on for quite some time, and didnt fade off, as the day rolled on.  Its a Full Coverage Foundation which didnt cling to my dry patches. Probably, when I get tanned a bit in the warmer months, the color would be a better match. The Product has SPF 21, and I always talk of SPF and camera flashbacks. So I would not suggest wearing this product if you are going to be photographed using a flash. However , its a great day time foundation, and can be a good addition to the Travel Make Up. It can also be used as a good Cream Contour, if used in a few shades darker.


Last but not the least, is the concealer. Lancome Teinte Idole Ultra Camouflage Concealer. I have a problem of major dark circles, and I need a heavy duty concealer. I usually use my concealer, in two shades lighter than mine, as I ca then color correct and highlight with it. The shade sent to me was  match to the foundation, 370 Bisque (Warm) wasnt a correct match. But the product was quite noteworthy. It's a Full Coverage Concealer. I had dark spots on my chin, and I used the product, to completely camouflage them. It can be a great product to cover your blemishes, if you use it in your exact shade. Its thick, and a little goes a long way. The packaging, again, is great and very ideal for travel.  I would love to try out the Foundation and Concealer, in my correct shade, and who knows, they might become my favorite Base Makeup .


For the final notes, which products, would I purchase , if I had to. I would definitely pick up Lancome Click &Glow Highlighting Skin Fluid and Lancome Teinte Idol Ultra Wear Camouflage Concealer. These products seriously packed the punch.

Disclaimer : I received these products Free from Lancome and Influenster for Testing Purposes.
