Lancome comes across to me more as a skincare than make-up brand. I've tried their make-up and wasn't very impressed with it. Their supposedly famous mascaras are not better than my Japanese ones and their lipsticks dry my lips out. Flip to the skincare chapter and it's a whole new story. The Genefique Youth Activating Concentrate by Lancome is a staple in my skincare routine. I call this the "powerpower serum". I use it and the next day I get really radiant skin!! It is a line targeted at middle aged woman but I guess it's better to start on skincare early. I haven't had any side effects from using this so I would recommend everyone to use this serum.
I would advise you to obtain a sample first as there are different skin types and conditions! So it's always better to try out before investing in a full-sized bottle. My mother uses the Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector and she has been using it for a long time. She swears by it! If you are looking for a high quality skincare regime, do consider Lancome!
Skip the non-waterproof mascaras!
Lancome is one of the high-end cosmetics brands that I have tried, and I personally find it only above average. My friend has not stopped raving about its liquid foundation, so do give it a try if you wish to change your foundation.
Lancome is also known for its mascaras (i.e. Hypnose), so it was with huge anticipation when I finally purchased the Hypnose Doll Lashes — only complaint is that the non-waterproof version gave me smudges at the end of the day. No, not good at all. At the end of the day, I find drugstore mascaras much more reliable (and not to mention pocket friendly!).
