Blanc Scintillant

Lancome Blanc Scintillant Petit Tresor Eyeshadow ($26.00 for 0.045 oz.) is a bright, sparkling white with subtle, warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry and semi-opaque coverage applied damp. The consistency was soft, a little dry and looser in the pan, and this particularly shade was better used with a damp brush, as it applied more evenly. The color lasted for eight and a half hours both dry and damp, but this was nowhere near the 16-hours claimed.

The Petit Tresor formula is supposed to have a “delicate and creamy formula” that “does not crease” and can be used “dry or wet to increase color intensity,” per Lancome’s website. One additional claim, which was on several other retailers for this product, was that the formula is supposed to have 16-hour wear. The formula is comparable to ones like MAC Extra Dimension and NARS Dual-Intensity. It felt smooth in the pan, blended out easily on the skin, and tended to have richer pigmentation and a stronger, more metallic finish applied damp than when used dry. I think that the formula looks better in person than in just photos, as it has a very “lived-in” kind of finish–a little melted in, so there’s an illusion of wetness but not creasing on the skin.

As long as you’re not a stickler for wear time, I actually quite enjoyed these and felt like they created a beautiful, sparkling finish on the lid.

Lancome Rosegold Lights Glow Subtil Silky Creme Highlighter ($30.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rose with warm, golden shimmer. Bobbi Brown Telluride (LE, $46.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Looxi Beauty Venom (P, $7.50) is lighter (90% similar). Becca Raspberry/Opal (P, $27.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Talk of the Town (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Laura Geller Pink Buttercream (P, $28.00) is brighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Sunset Glow (LE, $46.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Surratt Beauty De Cherubique (P, $32.00) is brighter, warmer (80% similar). Laura Geller Tropic Hues (P, $28.00) is brighter, cooler (80% similar). NYX Deep Plum (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (80% similar). KIKO 111 Classic Rose (P, $12.00) is brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Glow Subtil Silky Creme Highlighter is a “buildable cream highlighter” that gives a “soft-focused glow.” The texture is dense, lightly spongy, and very emollient to the touch–it feels quite wet initially–but it goes on smoothly and dries down to a powder-like finish, so it doesn’t look wet or glossy (nor does it slide right off the face, either!). If you thought, “Hey, that looks like ColourPop!” — you’re right on the money; the texture is very much in that vein, and to my knowledge, I’ve really only seen ColourPop use that cream formula in a cheek product (but they were not the first to use it in eyeshadows–Chanel, BUXOM, Dior, and MAC have also used it). I find Lancome’s formula to be more slippery to the touch, but they perform largely the same otherwise. Rosegold Lights had semi-sheer, buildable color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that was easy to apply to the skin with a synthetic brush or fingertips (I prefer fingertips myself). The color lasted for nine hours before fading very slightly.

Also, a note: the interior plastic pan that product actually sits in was offset in both of mine, so that it could pop out, which I do not think was intentional, and I was able to pop it fully in and haven’t had them lift out on their own since.

The Glow Subtil Silky Creme Highlighter is a “buildable cream highlighter” that gives a “soft-focused glow.” It’s available in five shades, and I purchased two to review (the other will be reviewed shortly!). The texture is dense, lightly spongy, and very emollient to the touch–it feels quite wet initially–but it goes on smoothly and dries down to a powder-like finish, so it doesn’t look wet or glossy (nor does it slide right off the face, either!). If you thought, “Hey, that looks like ColourPop!” — you’re right on the money; the texture is very much in that vein, and to my knowledge, I’ve really only seen ColourPop use that cream formula in a cheek product (but they were not the first to use it in eyeshadows–Chanel, BUXOM, Dior, and MAC have also used it). I find Lancome’s formula to be more slippery to the touch, but they perform largely the same otherwise. Glowing Lights had semi-sheer, buildable coverage that applied evenly, blended out easily, and lasted for over nine hours.

Also, a note: the interior plastic pan that product actually sits in was offset in both of mine, so that it could pop out, which I do not think was intentional, and I was able to pop it fully in and haven’t had them lift out on their own since.

Lancome Cote d’Azur & Pluie Drama Liqui-Pencil Eyeliner

Lancome Cote d'Azur Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner
Lancome Cote d’Azur Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner

Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.042 oz.) is supposed to be a richly pigmented, long-wearing (24 hour wear, no seriously, that’s how it’s marketed), waterproof, and creamy pencil eyeliner. This review features the two matte shades I bought, which I felt were longer-wearing compared to the shimmery shades I tried. The texture of the pencils is moderately creamy and doesn’t tug, so they apply nicely and lay down decently color in a single pass. The wear was all over the place for the eyeliners I happened to buy, from five hours to twelve hours. There is still color intact even after fifteen hours, but it was always significantly thinner.

Lancome Cote d’Azur Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “blue Klein.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark cobalt blue with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which was somewhat buildable–it appeared brighter and more intense–but coverage was always somewhat translucent. The consistency was creamy and easy to apply without tugging on the lash line, and the eyeliner wore well for twelve hours on me before it started to fade/thin with decent color still apparent at fifteen hours. It was gone by morning (24 hours). MAC Royal Wink (LE, $16.00) is brighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Chaos (P, $22.00) is glossier (95% similar). Sephora Sea If I Care (P, $14.00) is darker, brighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Chaos (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Most Wanted (LE, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). Ardency Inn Dark Blue (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). L'Oreal Cobalt Blue (250) (P, $8.99) is darker (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M22 Matte Majorelle Blue (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lancome Pluie Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “grey.” It’s a medium-dark, taupe brown with warm undertones and a strong gray overtone paired with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in one pass, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was creamy and applied without pulling on the lash line. It dried down and was budge-proof for twelve hours before breaking down, where it would fade/thin over the next several hours. It had nearly all but disappeared by the 24-hour mark. Urban Decay Desperation (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S50 Satiny Taupe (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Shoreline (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Zoeva Mute (P, $7.50) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Stray Dog (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
