  • Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover

    Good stuff! I love eye makeup, and this really does the job after a long night out. I do find it to be a bit greasy, but if I don't use too much it tends to be alright. Lovely smelling, completely non-irritating to my contact lens wearing-eyes. Can't help but wonder, though, can I get the same effect for a little less money?

    Clinique Almost Lipstick

    My new "secret weapon"

    Love this lipstick. The perfect level of color (mine is in Black Honey). The perfect level of gloss. Feels like nothing on, so I don't mind applying it the couple of time a day that it needs. Sleek, elegant tube that I've taken to keeping in my purse! Best of all, when I put it on, my husband told me I looked "really pretty today" but couldn't tell that I was wearing any lipstick at all! Perfect! It makes my lips look and feel like their most ideal selves. A note about this color: It really does like up to its hype. Tried it on both of my shopping companions, each of us with very different complexions, and it looked really good on all of us.

  • Lancome Tonique Pure Focus

    Lancome Tonique Pure Focus

    Best. Toner. Ever.

    I know that a lot of people think toner is a bunch of bunk, but with my oily skin, I always have liked it. I may be a bit partial, then, when I say that this is my single favorite skincare product ever. I love how it smells, how it makes my skin feel, but most especially how it makes it look. The other day I was in my favorite place (the beauty aisle of the drug store) trying to find a new foundation, and the saleswoman who was helping me actually balked at my assertion of oily skin! She said "But you look fine now - not oily at all." And this was at 5 in the afternoon! Bottom line: this stuff works. No oil. And do you know what no oil means? That's right. No breakouts. All this without drying and even with a little exfoliating salicylic-acid kick. I know I sound like a commercial, but I don't care. This magic potion is totally worth the money.

    Lancome High Resolution Refill-3X

    Surprising...in a good way

    Okay, this cream defied my expectations. First, some background: I have the Worst Skin in the World. Not only am I blemish-prone, but I also (apparently) have sensitive skin AND mild rosecea around my nose. But that is nothing compared to the horrible acne scarring I have. Oh, and did I mention the freckles? At least I haven't got any wrinkles -yet. Anyway, one evening after pummeling my skin into submission as I do every night, I found I had been a little too overzealous and was now suffering from uncomfortable dry skin. Great. Out of desperation, I reached for this little jar I had gotten as a free gift with purchase the week before. I woke up the next morning, and much to my surprise, not only was the dry skin gone, but I swear my scaring was noticeably diminished. Refill indeed! I have been using it nightly since and it really does seem to be making a difference. And it hasn't caused me to break out yet! (though I do admit that I am nervous about the honeymoon period running out and my pores becoming hopelessly clogged) The big downer: this stuff lists mineral oil as one of its principal ingredients. For the price, I would have expected a much higher-quality oil.

  • Clinique All About Eyes Rich

    I was really excited about this product. I had heard so many good things: creamy, smooth, non-greasy, gentle and hypoallergenic. I even loved the little swirl that the cream made when sitting in its little jar. Imagine my disappointment then, when I put it on that first night and the skin around my eyes IMMEDIATELY started burning and turning a bright, rashy red. Not easily dissuaded, I gave it another couple of chances (maybe my skin needs some time to get used to it, I thought. Or maybe the Clinique cream doesn't play well with my Lancome moisturizer), No luck. Alas, it is 5 days later and I am pretty sure that it has made the skin below my eyes swell up MORE. Sadly, I will be returning this cream to the store and looking for something a bit more gentle for my apparently sensitive skin.
