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.

Ingredients

Water, Octyldodecanol, Glycerin, Phenyl Trimethicone, Peg-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Tin Oxide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Peg-30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Stearyl Alcohol, Tribehenin, Sorbitan Isostearate, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Trideceth-6, Sodium Hydroxide, Silica, Myristyl Alcohol, Disodium Edta, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Caprylyl Glycol, Laureth-7, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polyacrylamide, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetyl Peg/Ppg-10/1 Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Tocopherol, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Sorbic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, [+/- May Contain: Ci 75470 / Carmine Ci 77491, Ci 77499 / Iron Oxides Ci 77891 / Titanium Dioxide Mica].

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.

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.

Best & Worst | Lancome Le Metallique Lipglosses

Lancome Le Metallique Lip Lacquers
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.
