When it comes to deciding between seemingly similar beauty products, who better to turn to than the editors who have tested out just about every single item on the market? Cue: Our major beauty editor picks. Ahead, find the best Lancôme products according to the editors who have tried them all.
I don't think Lancôme gets enough credit for their shadows! They have a ton of colors — everything from neutrals to dark, dramatic shades to brights — and the color payoff is fantastic. My favorite shade is The New Black, which has little flecks of silver in it. It makes the coolest smoky eye!
I keep them next to my bed and apply under each eye as soon as I wake up, wearing them while I scroll through the news and work on our daily lineup. Twenty to 30 minutes later I pop them off, and my eyes are magically smooth, bright and line-free — even if I’m recovering from tequila-night with the girls or a This Is Us-induced sob session right before hitting the sheets!
I have so many Lancôme loves, but I’ve recently fallen for Visionnaire Nuit Beauty Sleep Perfector. It’s technically a night cream, but the texture is more like refreshing gel that somehow manages to feel coddling, rich, and balmy on my extremely dry skin. It makes my face instantly feel renewed, plump and hydrated, and the effect lasts until morning. The Good Housekeeping Beauty Lab’s test of night creams backs that up: It increased moisturization by over 40 percent in their measurements with the Corneometer device, which gauges moisture levels in skin.
As someone with a problematic sleep schedule, I'm always searching for skin care products that'll work overnight to fake a well-rested look by morning. While I've already tried plenty of products promising brighter skin overnight, nothing has been able to perk up my complexion like the Lancôme Énergie De Vie Night Cream. Packed with antioxidants, this cream refreshes the skin for a radiant, highly moisturized finish that'll last all day long.
I've loved Lancôme's Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover for a looooong time. It was the first non-drugstore makeup remover I ever purchased and remains one of my favorites! The lipids it contains really get rid of any stubborn mascara other removers leave behind, but the best part it that it doesn't sting my sensitive eyes.
I love the new Miel-En-Mousse Foaming Cleansing Makeup Remover with acacia honey so much I actually crave it! It smells truly amazing — like organic honey and flowers — and the texture is unique. It is applied to dry skin like gooey honey. I massage it in as it warms up and then add a bit of water. The honey melts into a creamy foam that takes all of my makeup off, leaving me with hydrated, fresh skin. Honey is detoxifying for the skin, so I know this is helping me since I live in a polluted city!
I instantly fell in love with the original Juicy Shaker: So cute! So cushiony! So many pretty color options! And while I still adore it, my favorite shades are sheer and don’t last very long. Enter: Matte Shaker. When I want more color and a matte finish, it’s my go-to lippie. It’s nowhere near as drying as a matte liquid lipstick but just as cool.
