Gold Lights

Lancome Gold Lights Click & Glow Highlighting Skin Fluid ($23.00 for 0.08 oz.) is light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a pearly sheen. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage that applied without issue to the skin, though I felt like it was easiest and fastest to work with fingertips for blending over a brush. The consistency was thin, a little mousse-y, and dried down so the wear was longer (seven and a half hours) but gave me enough time to work with it first.

The formula is described as buildable, though it is designed to give skin a “barely-there shimmer” and a “natural-looking glow.” It has a more unique, foamy, sponge-tipped applicator to disperse and apply the product, which I wasn’t in love with (did not seem to do well at blending, building, or doing anything other than transferring product from the interior to my face) and seemed to soak up quite a bit of product. The formula wasn’t as thin as a typical liquid highlighter, though it wasn’t thick or heavy either; almost like a watery mousse. I had the best luck blending with fingertips, which maneuvered and spread the product without lifting it. They dried down within a minute or so, and the wear time was between seven and eight hours. I’d describe the glow as light to moderate as the coverage was buildable from sheer to semi-sheer. Worth noting, the pen delivery system does not contain that much product, particularly when we’re talking about liquid highlighters.

Amber Lights

Lancome Amber Lights Click & Glow Highlighting Skin Fluid ($23.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a dirty, medium gold with brownish undertones and a luminous finish. It seemed a little like an antique gold, though it seemed warmer and brighter than a true antique gold to my eye. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, a little mousse-y but still more like a liquid than anything else. It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage that blended decently but had a tendency to look patchy (I tried using a few different blushes as well as fingertips and always saw the same, slightly uneven results). It lasted for eight hours on me.

Best & Worst | Lancome Le Metallique Lipglosses

Lancome Le Metallique Lip Lacquers

Lancome Le Metallique Lip Lacquers ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a new lipgloss formula that is available in 13 shades. The quality was a bit all over the map, and a lot of the range lacked the coverage promised by the brand. They had a very high-gloss, shiny finish, and they had longer wear, as they were quite tacky (which may or may not be a deal breaker for you!). I think if you like tacky, thicker gloss formulas with medium coverage, lots of shine, and fine shimmer, you might like the formula.

Crystallized Cobalt (10)

Lancome Crystallized Cobalt (10) Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium blue with lighter blue and silver pearl. It appeared brighter swatched than on the lips, as it ended up being semi-sheer and sort of turned my lips into a “I’ve been eating a blue popsicle” kind of color. While the gloss had greater density and was thicker, it managed to find its way into every lip line on my lips. On top of that, the color did not apply evenly and looked horrendous. The color lasted for five hours and was hydrating, so I guess all wasn’t lost. I give credit to Lancome for doing a blue gloss in the first place, and it was translucent, but if it’s going to look this terrible, I’m not sure you’re really doing your brand any favors.

The Le Metallique formula is supposed to have “full-coverage” with a “rich, creamy texture” that is hydrating and long-wearing. First and foremost, if you do not like tacky gloss, you’ll want to stay far away from these; the formula is very tacky and is a thicker, denser formula. They are longer wearing as a result, though, and most shades fell within four to six hours of wear for me and retain a really high-shine, high-gloss finish that almost looks wet and lasts throughout the wear time. Most shades were semi-opaque to opaque, but as the formula was thicker, I would hesitate to add more product to get more coverage. They seemed to have no discernible scent or taste to me.

Lancome Purple Onyx (07) Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a blackened plum with fine gold, violet, and burgundy pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it did not apply well–it was uneven and all of the color pooled into my lip lines. The gloss still had a tackier, thicker texture, though it was long-wearing at five and a half hours. It was hydrating and comfortable to wear, at least.
