Sometimes you need to re-think the products you’re using and start fresh. That’s generally what I do with each new season. This Fall, Lancôme is giving us the tools to kickstart our look…a “Beauty Bootcamp” of sorts!
Lancôme’s perfect look consists of four easy steps: Prep, Correct, Perfect and Glow.
Step 1: Prep skin with Visionnaire Crescendo, an easy to use leave on peel. This peel fights multiple signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores and dull skin. It’s a dual-phase system, so for the first 14 nights you apply Phase 1, which contains alpha hydroxy acids to stimulate cell renewal. I felt a slight tingle on application, but no irritation. You then switch to Phase 2 for the next 14 nights. Formulated with Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid, Phase 2 evens out and smoothes the skin’s complexion. Again, I experienced tingling but no redness, burning or irritation. It should be noted that this peel should NOT be used by those with sensitive skin. Also, be sure to use a sunscreen with this, or any acid peel.
Step 2: Correct with Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Corrector. There are 5 full coverage color correctors available to fix skin concerns, including redness (green), dark spots or dark circles (yellow for fair/light skinstones, peach for medium, and orange red for deep); and sallow/dull skin (lavender). These color correctors are very pigmented, so a little goes a long way. Depending on your preference, you can also choose Lancôme’s Miracle CC Cushion Color Correcting Primer (review).
Step 3: Perfect with Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Concealer. This is the first concealer I’ve tried from Lancôme; it’s full coverage, and very blendable. I do prefer using a brush for best application. This concealer worked great over the Camouflage Corrector; it has a matte finish that lasts all day. A little goes a long way, as it’s quite pigmented. Available in a range of 16 shades with a variety of undertones.
Step 4: Finish your look by adding the glow! Click & Glow Liquid Highlighters have a lightweight formula with just a hint of shimmer for a radiant finish. This is not an all-out strobing effect…it’s more subtle and gives your skin a lit-from-within look. The pen is very easy to use for precise placement, and is available in four shades: Lumières D’Or (warm gold), Lumières D’Or Rose (warm rose gold), Lumières Rosées (pearlescent pink) and Lumières De Bronze (rich amber bronze). These shades will accomodate a variety of skin tones, and are perfect for travel.
For the finishing touch, Lancôme hits it out of the park with another amazing mascara! Monsieur Big Mascara goes the distance…24 hour wear, with massive volume and no flaking or smudging. Love!
