I'm a girl who loves beauty products, even though I haven't always been very keen on them, so I decided to start a beauty blog, where I share beauty product reviews with others and tell you about both the worst and best beauty products out there, according to me.

I'm also hoping it will make beauty and makeup more fun, even for those who are not beauty addicts already.

Review: Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector

Time for another Lancome review again, and while I must say that it has been a lot of fun trying out all the Lancome products found in my recent Lancome batch, I have to admit that I only got a sample size of the Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector. So I have not been able to try this for a very long time, only around a week.

I am not too bummed out about this, though, because while Lancome say that the Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector is a serum that tackles a ton of different skin care concerns, from wrinkles to large pores, marks, redness and more, I think that such miracle products are generally less good than products that focus specifically one one issue, wrinkles or large pores, for example. A serum that is supposed to do so many things, rarely does all of them well, and in my opinion, this is true for the Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector as well.
This serum does, however, have a lovely scent, as well as a nice texture, making it nicer than many other serums, but I cannot say I see any difference in my skin after using this. Not in a good way, and thankfully, not in a bad way either.

But given the rather hefty price tag of this serum, I am not sure I would buy it full price, since there are better serums out there, that do give me results.

It was still nice to give this serum a try, but for now, I think I will mainly stick to Lancome's mascaras, rather than venture into more skin care trials from this brand. They do mascaras really well, but I am not sure skin care is something they really excel in. (You might remember that while their eye cream was okay, it as not much more than that)

Review: Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation

Time for another Lancome review, out of my recent Lancome stash. This time it's for a foundation, the Teint Idole Ultra 24H that the saleslady recommended, since they did not have my favorite Bourjois foundation.

Since I have tried many bad foundations over the years, I must admit my hopes for the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H were not that high, even if this is a Lancome product.

But I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I found a color that fits me perfectly, and makes my skin look great, but very natural (important for someone like me, who doesn't want to look like she is wearing makeup, even though she is), and the foundation looks good for a really long time, too, which cannot be said for most foundations.
The bottle is chic and easy to use, and the foundation also has a nice scent, again, something you cannot expect from most foundations. You also do not need to use large amounts of this foundation, because a little really goes a long way, so while this might be a bit of a pricey foundation for some, I think it would still be worth it because of that. And that helps create a more natural look as well, of course.

The only complaint I have about this foundation is that the coverage is not great. If you have any serious blemishes or discolorations, this foundation might not be able to help you, but it does a great job at hiding any small flaws you may have.
