Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil Review

I received the a Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil in Côte D’azur in my February 2018 Sephora Play Box. . This pencil comes in 4 matte shades and 20 metallic shades and the full-sized price is $23.

I was a huge Lancome girl in the 80’s and I’m thrilled to find a product that I like using today.

What’s to love?

The Drama Liqui-Pencil is a dream to apply and the color is gorgeous! I simply ran the pencil under my lower lashes and had no tugging or pulling — it literally glides on! You can smudge the color or leave as-is. The blue is really bright and I’d probably only wear this at a special event or an 80’s party but I’d like to try the Metallic Bronze shade for daily wear.

I also found the staying power to be amazing! I went 8-hours without any fading.

It is formulated without Parabens or Sulfates.

Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara Review

I received a Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara in my August 2017 Glossybox and here’s the scoop on the new mascara from Lancôme.

What’s to love?

Monsieur Big is truly a volumizing mascara. I have the 01 Big Is The New Black Shade and I’m wondering if more shades are coming.

The formula is super smooth applies very evenly with the large furry wand. All I needed was one stroke for complete coverage. It did not flake or smudge and I got 8-hours of wear out of it. I never have any need to wear mascara for 24-hours but it claims to last that long! It uses “supple waxes and polymers to adhere immediately to lashes”.

I’m excited to be using a Lancôme product too. They were a favorite for me in the ’80’s and their products are very good quality. Monsieur Big is appropriately Made in France too.

You can see my video unboxing of the August 2017 Glossybox below!

5 Luxury Beauty Finds For Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is creeping up fast and I’ve been hinting to my husband that I’d prefer make-up over chocolate and I even bought myself The Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Set last week and it was a total treat. So I did some research to find 5 luxury finds that I wouldn’t mind showing  up on February 14th. The prices go up as the list progresses. I seriously need to win the lottery!

Lush Happy Valentine’s Day Wrapped Gift

This Valentine’s Day gift set from Lush is $46.95 and included a Sex Bomb Bath Bomb, Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar, The Kiss Lip Scrub, Prince Charming Shower Gel and Ro’s Argan Self-Preserving. I love the box and the bow too!

Lancôme La Rôse Blush Poudrer

If you can find one of these amazing rose petal smoothing powders you’re in luck. They are gorgeous but seem to be sold out everywhere. They cost $60 if you can find one. It’s so pretty I’m not sure I could make myself use this.

Peter Thomas Roth Mask Vault

I have the smaller version of this set and love it! This set costs $225 because you get 6 large jars. I love how luxurious the Peter Thomas Roth masks are and 24k Gold in one of my favorites.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Stockpile

I think I would faint if I got an Urban Decay Lipstick vault. This 30 lipstick set sells for $325 and looks simply amazing. You get a wide variety of shades that would probably last at least until Christmas.

La Mer ‘The Moisturizing Soft Cream’

Back in July I got a tiny jar of the La Mer ‘The Moisturizing Soft Cream’ in my Allure Beauty Box but a 3.4 oz jar sells for $465. Alas it was a bit out of my budget to restock but wow did it make my skin look good.

So there you have it! 5 ideas for Valentine’s Day that might break your budget but will certainly warm your heart.

I’m so excited that my December Sephora Play Box has arrived and it has 6 products this month! The theme for December is The Partygoers and the bag is super cool in black and copper.

Here’s what I got…

Urban Decay All Nighter Make-Up Setting Spray – I’ve been wanting to try out this setting spray and now I can! I can’t wait to see how it works. Full-Sized Price: $31

Detox Dry Shampoo – I’m always up for trying a new dry shampoo and this one smells nice. I might just gift this though. Full-Sized Price: $23

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose – This is a new fragrance created by Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen. It smells nice. Full-Sized Price: $85

Make-Up Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer – This is another product that I want to try out. It says “Skin Equalizer triples the power of your foundation: easier application, optimized makeup result, improved wear.” Full-Sized Price: $37

Lancôme HYPNÔSE DRAMA Instant Full Body Volume Mascara – I love getting a mini mascara in my beauty boxes! This one is “An intense, black volumizing mascara that creates full-body, high-volume lashes in a single stroke.” Full-Sized Price: $27.50

Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red – This is a pretty deep red lip stain from Sephora. Full-Sized Price: $14

I’m going to give this box a 9/10. I love the setting spray, mascara and skin equalizer however I’m not a huge fan of dry shampoo or perfume. But overall it’s a nice bag!
