There are three products that I seriously cannot live without. I think it’s safe to say that it has been years since I’ve left the house without these products applied. Because of this ridiculous behavior, they are now a part of everyday life. I feel naked and uncomfortable without them. Pretty insane to be so addicted to material items- but I’m being honest. Now that all of that is out on the table, I’ll tell you a little bit about each product in order of how I apply them every morning.

Lancome Cils Booster XL :: At first I was hesitant to add this product to my everyday routine, but I’m so happy that I did (just wish it was free, as it doubles the cost of your lash experience). This product acts as your conditioner before applying mascara. The white coat of booster protects and conditions lashes. It smoothes, lengthens, and helps avoid clumping. It really allows me to ‘set’ my lashes before applying mascara. As an extra bonus it also intensifies the color of your mascara making even the darkest black darker. (I know that doesn’t sound real but it is- promise).
Lancome Definicils Precious Cells Mascara :: Honestly, at this point in my life I could be a spokesperson for Lancome. It’s rare that a day goes by that someone doesn’t ask me what kind of mascara I use. People ask me all the time if I have ever tried the other big players like Dior Show, MAC Studio Fix or YSL Volume Effet and honestly I have, but nothing compares. The mascara defines and lengthens for lash-by-lash thickness that Lancome has mastered.
Lancome Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner :: Liner is the newest addition. I can see a huge difference in the way my eyes look as soon as the application is complete. I don’t wear the liner the same everyday. For daily errands and a quick lunch, I wear it only on the inside of my lower lashes. For a date night or big party, I line the inside and outside of the top and bottom. I love how super easy it is to handle. The foam wand is longer than I am used to and allows for precise application. It doesn’t tug or skip, which has been an issue for me with others. The color is rich and intense and stays on longer than anything I’ve ever experienced.
