Review, Swatch & Tutorial: Lancome - Le Monochromatique*

Lancome has launched Le Monochromatique, a unique cream to powder product that is multi-purpose. It can be used on the eyes, cheeks and lips and feels like a soft cushiony mousse like texture that blends beautifully onto the skin and dries to a powder finish. These products are also buildable and looks so beautiful on the skin - no matter how you layer it, it never looks thick and powdery or cakey. 

These products are said to be: Fragrance-Free, Oil-Free, Lightweight feel on the skin (as confirmed above), Contains Vitamin E,  has a soft matte finish and is suitable for all skin types. There are10 shades total and retails for $30 cad.

I like to use Magique on the inner corner or the middle of the lips to give it a subtle highlight and volume to the lips. Eclat is beautiful as an eyeshadow or highlight. Mademoiselle and A La Mode are so buttery smooth and leaves a beautiful wash of color to the lids. Petit Bisou and Si'l Vous Plait work as great blushes or patted on the lip and also can be used on the eyes, which I did as a crease color in one of the looks I created.

The swatches pictured here are all done with one swipe and no primer - you can see how truly beautiful they are!
