Make-up is a necessity for most women and I definitely can't leave my home without them. We may already own a mascara, eyeliner, blusher or lipstick, but never hurt to have one too many. ;)
Today I would like to share with you two Lancôme products that I have tried and love, courtesy of Sephora Malaysia. The two products that I would like to share with you guys are Lancôme Grandiose Waterproof Mascara and Lancôme Blush Subtil in 031 Pepite De Corail.
For those who always google to see shades or swatches, it is never easy to justify the exact colour/shade because it varies depending on the camera and lighting. So here's a side to side comparison between fluorescent light (white) and tungsten (yellow) light.
There are some glitters in the blush as well but once you apply it you can barely seem them. This blush to my surprise was pretty pigmented, all I needed was one to two swipes of the blush using the brush provided and it's enough! Here a picture of swatches comparison between 1 to 3 finger swipes.
I apologize for the lack of colour density as this is the quality of my front camera, but even so the blush is still pretty visible and even more visible if you saw me in person. :)
Let's talk about the Lancôme Grandiose Waterproof Mascara. Firstly, I really don't fancy mascaras because they are difficult to remove (especially waterproof ones, but I have oily skin :( so I need waterproof). So my review on this mascara is based on someone who's not a big fan of mascaras and prefer wearing falsies.
The shape of the mascara wand is pretty unique which makes mascara application convenient. As for the bristles, nothing too fancy, but I like how the comb is short since I don't really have much lashes for a thick comb, so a plus point on that.
After the first application, I could already see the difference. This mascara definitely gives volume but not too drastic on length, which is what I like because I always want my make-up to look as natural as possible. In this picture I applied about 2 to 3 coats of mascara.
What's important to me is that it's visible 'especially' on camera! Ever experienced your make-up looking just nice through the reflection of your mirror but your face looks naked and pale through the lense? This mascara will definitely do justice in pictures! I have pretty oily skin, I would be lying if I said it does not smudge at all. So the truth is... it did smudge, but only a little and after few hours later.
As for removing it, it's pretty easy to remove if you use oil-based make up removers. Micellar cleansing water will not be able to remove it, guess this really proves that it's waterproof. ;)
Overall, I'd rate this mascara 6/10 if we compare quality vs price.
I really love how natural and refresh I look with just these 2 products.
