DO YOU MISS ME?
My comeback blog post will be on some products from a collection that I deem quite unexpected from Lancome. I mean, I have never actually paid any attention to Lancome's makeup releases because they just never seem to be too exciting. The In Love collection isn't anything revolutionary in terms of color scheme or formulas. However, in terms of packaging and the feel of this collection, it is definitely something interesting enough to pique my interest.
The Lancome In Love collection contains quite an array of products, there's single shadows, a shadow palette, eye khol liner pencil, mascara, finishing powder, bb cream, blushes, tinted lip balms and a dewy mist. I noticed that the products in the collection varies depending on your location, so you might want to have a look yourself HERE (Lancome USA) and HERE (Lancome Malaysia).
I picked up 4 items from this collection. I purchased both the Blush In Love in 10 Peche Joue-Joue and 20 Pommettes D'amour as well as 2 Baume In Love in 110 Rose Macaron & 120 Peach Melodie.
BLUSH IN LOVE| 10 PECHE JOUE-JOUE & 20 POMMETTES D'AMOUR
There's a mirror that can be pulled out completely.
The packaging is cute in my opinion, but it IS made of cardboard so it will probably get worn and battered quite easily. That being said, the cardboard is rather sturdy and it can protect the powder relatively well. It has a very steady magnetic closure so I don't think there is a need to worry that it might flip open in your makeup bag/ travel bag.
10 Peche Joue-Joue.
The light pink frosty colour is an overspray, so it will disappear with use.
From left: 1-centre portion (pale pastel pink with a hint of peach), 2-outer portion without overspray (peach tone pink that leans quite pink), 3-the outer portion with overspray, 4-all colours swirled together (light peachy pink), 5-blended.
20 Pommettes D'amour.
From left: 1-centre portion (pinkish coral), 2-outer portion without overspray (bright bubblegum pink with a hint of lilac), 3-the outer portion with overspray, 4-all colours swirled together (bright cool tone pink, barbie pink color), 5-blended.
The texture of both the blushes are nice. The powder is smooth and finely milled, also it blends nicely onto the skin without any powdery look. In terms of pigmentation, I think that Peche Joue-Joue is on the subtle side. Even on my fair skin tone, Peche Joue-Joue only turns out to be a very subtle and natural color (after applying several layers), so I doubt if it will show up on skin tone deeper than mine (which is Chanel b20, Estee Lauder Double Wear Light intensity 2.0). Pommettes D'amour does provide better colour payoff and it is a shade that I think will work on a wide variety of skin tones.
As expected of a sheerer/ less pigmented blush, Peche Joue-Joue has a weaker lasting power when compared with Pommettes D'amour. Keeping in mind that I have very oily skin, Peche Joue-Joue lasts for about 4 and a half hours and Pommettes D'amour can last up to 7 hours.
BAUME IN LOVE| 110 ROSE MACARON & 120 PEACH MELODIE
There's 4 Baume In Love released in this collection. From left: 100 Sugar Rose, 110 Rose Macaron, 120 Peach Melodie and 130 A La Folie Cherry (the names are different on the US website but the colours look the same).
The Baume In Love is a sheer tinted lipbalm that is supposed to be moisturizing while providing the lips with a lasting stain of colour.
"The formula is filler-free and contains a transparent ultra-shiny oil that optimizes the transluscency of colors and adds shine to lips.
When the texture is applied, its high content of light oils delivers a very smooth, thin and glinding film on the lips that provides a comfortable, lightweight feeling for the customer.
Protective jelly enhances its adherence on the lips. This adherence combined with its barrier effect optimizes comfort and protection of the skin from its external environment by maintaining moisture levels within the lips.
Shea butter has a unique composition compared to other plant-derived oils: it provides a naturally moisturizing effect and leaves the lips feeling soft." source
I love sheer-tinted-lip-balms type product so I picked up 2 out of the 4 shades. I have 110 Rose Macaron (Urban Ballet in the US) & 120 Peach Melodie (Coral Electric in the US).
The Baume In Love has the same packaging as Lancome's Rouge In Love Lipsticks range. The bullet is quite small and compact, and it has a pink stitching design running down the back (so cute!!).
1st swatch is 2 swipes and 2nd swatch is a built-up swatch. From left: 110 Rose Macaron (sheer bright-tone pink)& Peach Melodie (sheer peach-pink).
The Baume In Love does leave a slight stain on the skin.
I am absolutely in love with the Lancome Baume In Love!! The formula is super smooth and it glides on so amazingly well on the lips. Although the colour looks super bright in the bullet, when it goes onto the lips, it gives a very translucent tint of colour with a gorgeous shiny, almost glowing look. I didn't expect much colour payoff but I was pleasantly surprised to see that it does impart a nice hint of colour on the lips. It is also very hydrating and moisturizing on the lips while being very lightweight and comfortable to wear. The Baume In Love lasts for around 2-3 hours if I don't eat/drink/talk too much but I don't really mind the shorter wear time since it is so easy and effortless to be reapplied.
