Review: Lancôme Énergie De Vie Pearly Lotion

What I’m about to write is NOT meant to sound uppity or snooty.  I typically do not use ‘fluffy’ skincare.  By ‘fluffy’, I mean products that look pretty and may feel nice but offer little to no results.  Many of my skincare items are ‘treatments’ or ‘targeted’ for a certain issue or concern.  That leaves out much of the skincare available at the drugstore or department stores, and even Sephora.  I spend a lot of time (probably too much time) researching skincare and ingredients and looking at efficacy studies because I care about what goes on my face.

Is it ever too early to shop for holiday makeup? Lancome Taupe Craze Color Design Palette

And I love it!

What I also love is the plastic overlay that details how to use the palette as well as a package insert detailing “Day” and “Night” looks.

 

*sigh* I know I won’t be able to keep my hands off this palette-I will HAVE to use it before the holidays!  Gorgeous!
