Lancome Bienfait Multi-vital SPF 30 Sunscreen Cream Review

Lancome Bienfait Multi-vital SPF 30 Sunscreen Cream ($45.00 for 1.70 oz.) is supposed to have 24-hour hydration with a greaseless formula and contains SPF 30. For sun protection, the active ingredients are Avobenzone 3.0% (UVA I) Octisalate 5.0% (UVB), and Octocrylene 7.0% (UVB), so the formula does not protect against the UVA II portion of the spectrum.

Lancome Enduring Vert Infinite Luminous Eyeshadow

Lancome Enduring Vert Infinite Luminous Eyeshadow ($24.50 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “satin pastel green.” It’s a muted sea foam green with a frosted, metallic finish. I thought Chanel Riviere was a dupe, but it’s a lot softer and lighter. MAC Sweet & Sour is greener. Dior Garden Pastels is similar. Lancome Fashion Forward is lighter. Giorgio Armani Green Jacquard is greener, slightly darker.

Lancome Always Fuchsia Infinite Luminous Eyeshadow

Lancome Always Fuchsia Infinite Luminous Eyeshadow ($24.50 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “metallic pink plum.” It’s a pinky purple with a metallic finish. The amount of pink in this shade is what makes it less dupeable. MAC Butterfly Party is darker, more purple. NYX Violetta is darker. Shades like Urban Decay Fishnet is cooler-toned and more fuchsia.

Beautiful Beginnings with Lancome

Beautiful Beginnings with Lancome

What was the first Lancome product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: The first product I tried by Lancome was Pixel Pink, which was a lipstick that was part of the Pout-a-Porter series.  From there, I tried some of their summer bronzers, which usually have really gorgeous designs on them (my favorite was the Bamboo one). There are definitely products I like by Lancome, but it’s not a brand that I seem to gravitate towards on my own. I feel like I need someone to tell me something is amazing before I’ll check it out.
