Navigating through a luxury beauty counter can be intimidating and a little overwhelming for many. With literally hundreds of products, colours and formulas, how to you find the hidden “star” products? We all know and love Grandiose mascara, Bi-Facil makeup remover and Visionnaire. But what about those hidden Lancome products that no one knows about?
We asked Lora Spiga, Lancome’s National Makeup Artist to share the best unknown Lancome products that deliver great results and look good on most skin tones. She spends her days working with the entire collection – whether it be making up customers to hosting Master Class Workshops. So she knows what products really perform. Here are her eight secret Lancome favourites.
“These eight Lancome products are hidden gems! I use each of them almost daily and they deliver the best results. Better yet, they aren’t so well known. So you’ll be able to tell your most discerning beauty friends that you’ve been using these pro secret products for years. You’ll instantly be in the know.”
- Ombre Hypnose Eyeshadow in Erika F
“If I had to guess what the ‘F’ stands for in this eye shadow’s name, I would have to say ‘FIERCE’. This eyeshadow mono is a must-have for all women! I love how versatile it is. Day or night, it gives just the right amount of shimmer, and the colour is neutral enough for all skin tones. I use this almost every day. I warm it into my eyelid with my finger for a fast and easy look. It’s perfect for busy moms who don’t have much time in the morning. Just apply it with your fingertip. It’s that easy!
- Le Lipstique in Clair
“This invisible lip liner prevents your lipstick from bleeding. I put it all over my lips before applying lipstick. It is a pro makeup artist favourite.
- Modele Sourcils Brow Groomer
“I love this product. It easily gives the brows more definition without looking like your brows are drawn on. If you’ve had difficulties with your brows in the past, give this product a try. It really delivers.”
- Gloss in Love – Lip Maximizer 010 Volumizer
“If you have thin or thinning lips, this is the product for you. It creates plumper lips in seconds. This gloss really does give the lips some volume. It’s a favourite of my clients.”
- Blush Subtil – Blushing Tresor
“This versatile blush colour is suitable for all skin tones. Besides creating a hint of luminosity to cheeks, it creates a sheer, natural glow. I like how the pigment melts effortlessly into skin. That is key for creating a natural look.”
- La Base Paupieres Pro-Aquatique
“If you’ve ever had trouble with your eye shadow lasting or not looking its true colour, this is the solution for you. Pat this product onto the entire eye lid with your fingertips to instantly erase any discolouration. This creates a uniform canvas on which to apply your eyeshadow. Not only with the colour look better, it will stay on for much longer.”
- Le Correcteur Pro Concealer
“While this concealer palette can look a little intimidating, don’t be discouraged. It is worth the time to master the three steps. The results will be incredible. Under eye circles disappear in seconds. Just use the little brush that comes with it to apply the concealer gel first. Then, apply the colour perfecting cream. Set with the powder to finish. This is such a hidden gem in the Lancome portfolio!”
- Baume in Love Lipstick in Urban Ballet
“I love that you don’t need a mirror to put on this lipstick. And it gives just the right amount of colour and shine without looking overdone. I find it acts as a nice moisturizer for lips too. It’s my go-to lipstick shade.”
