When I was in high school, one of my friends (whose mum was incredibly stylish) introduced me to some seriously great lip glosses in the form of Lancôme Juicy Tubes (I think nearly all of my friends had Juicy Tubes as one of their first 'grown up' beauty purchases). Lancôme has been a firm beauty favourite of mine ever since.
Now, it's been a while since I was a teen and so many people have said to me over the years, "oh, you have such great skin, you don't even need to wear make up". Well... I've definitely noticed those comments decreasing over the last few years and was just discussing with a friend about whether it was time to start using a serum. And then volia! Lancôme has just released their new formula of best-selling serum Visionnaire and I was lucky enough to attend the launch at Myer Melbourne City.
It's a very light serum that absorbs into your skin quickly. I've been using it for about a week now, and can definitely see a difference in the overall appearance of my skin. At the risk of gushing, it's also made my face baby soft and I think it's also helped with the dryness that was happening on my cheeks. Very happy with it so far, but the lovely Lancôme ladies said it takes about six weeks to see the full difference, so let's give it a bit more time...
Lancôme is also launching a new mascara called Grandiose and I am so excited about this because as crazy as it sounds, I only discovered great mascara last year in the form of Lancôme Star Hypnose. Turns out that Grandiose is even better for my short, straight lashes because if I can't be bothered curling them, this mascara will actually curl them! (I've tried a lot over the years and none of the others have done that.) It's got what's called a swan neck wand, which means it helps lengthen your outer lashes and then you turn the wand the other way and you can get into the corners of your eyes. It's seriously great and if you like mascara, definitely check it out!
