Ever since cushion compact foundation was introduced to the beauty industry, it has been a staple in my makeup routine no matter how lazy or glam I'm feeling. No surprise that brands – both affordable and luxurious have hopped onto the cushion bandwagon with a wide variety of these to achieve porcelain, blemish free face effortlessly. So far, I've only tried Korean cushion compacts, so this time round I'm really excited to give Lancôme's highly raved cushion compact a shot.
Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation | RM188.00
Claims to be long lasting, this oil-free lightweight liquid foundation also promises an ultra high coverage, plus refreshing hydration (that's a first, I must say), SPF 50 Sunscreen, as well as a natural matte finish. It is utilizing a technology called Polar Cushion Technology™ - which is tailor made for longwear and coverage.
I've got to say I am utterly won over by this cushion compact, from its chic packaging to its velvet puff applicator which is one of a kind. It was developed specifically for high coverage textures. Instead of tapping the puff onto your face to blend it out, you can just swipe it onto your skin to blend the formula out seamlessly thus creating a flawless-looking finish.
And of course, the formula itself too! It does give me the cooling sensation when I first applied it onto my skin and the best part, even the first dip itself was enough to cover my entire face.
The natural looking glow aftermath without any concealer or even loose powder, I kid you not. The cushion comes in nine shades and mine was in 025, Beige Naturel. Though it can be slightly on the steep price, but I can assure you that it's certainly worth every dime you spent
And on my lips, I was wearing the The Lancôme Juicy Shaker that I've been looking forward to try out ever since it made its debut. Trust me when I say it took me a good 30 minutes to decide which color I wanted for myself since it comes with 20 different shades and flavours that look equally fabulous and tempting! So what is so special about this Juicy Shaker? It has this biphase formula which does not only nourish your lips but also leave your pout infused with a sheer wash of colour. Packed with 5 nourishing oils such as cranberry seed oil and sweet almond oil, it can treat your lips like a lip balm.
Lancôme Juicy Shaker in 372 - Berry Tale | RM95.00
When you open up the cap of the Juicy Shakers, you'll notice the unique looking sponge tip applicator. Fluffy as it looks, it feels really soft on the lips. You can either dab or swipe it onto the lips to apply it. The tip will hold just the right amount for you to use, so as to prevent a mess. It also seems to absorb more oil than the pigments sometimes, so maybe shaking a little more beforehand would help balance that out.
Swatch of Berry Tale; bright mid-toned reddish pink shade.
I was never a big fan of lip products, cause they either dry up my lips or end up being sticky. But this Juicy Shaker is definitely something you should try especially for people who have dry lips like me. They are healthy for the lips with its caring and hydrating formula, they give your lips a youthful glow. You don't have to worry if it could last you throughout the day because applying it is so quick and easy. And if you have that extra budget on hand, you can get a few other shades a fun time shaking up your very own Juicy Shaker concoction.
