Review: Lancome Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick + more!
Today we will be reviewing several Lancome products that we received from Influenster.
This box was sent complimentary for testing purposes.
As always, all of my reviews are my own honest opinions.
I was not asked to write a full blog review.

Disclaimer: I tried these products multiple times so I am able to give an honest review.
The Matte Shaker is a liquid lipstick “that wears comfortably without drying out your lips! A water-in-oil emulsion that is formulated with a patented Ultra Thin Film technology to deliver weightless texture and a second-skin feel without sacrificing intense color payoff.”
The Bienfait UV SPF is a “light-weight, oil-free broad spectrum sunscreen that is fast-absorbing and a perfect choice to wear every day over your moisturizer, under makeup or alone.”
Visionnaire Crescendo is a “peel to reveal smooth, even and radiant skin! This easy to use, leave-on liquid nighttime face peel works to gently exfoliate skin surface cells and address multiple skin concerns: uneven skin texture, appearance of pores, wrinkles and fine lines, and dark spots. Inspired by fitness interval training, Visionnaire Crescendo combines two different formulas each with their own unique ingredient combination to be used over a 28-night period as part of an interval skin training experience.”
Lancome has been around for over 80 years. They seek to be the world’s leading luxury beauty brand while epitomizing beauty and glamour with a quintessential French touch. They pride themselves on their high-quality skincare products and have encased a timeless style that delivers scientifically proven results.
Price Point: The prices of the products listed above range from $22 to $75.
Product – Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick: Let me start off by saying I have tried my share of liquid lipsticks. I have tried everything from Colourpop to Kylie Cosmetics to Anastasia Beverly Hills to Kat Von D beauty… this liquid lip takes the cake for light-weight. It honestly feels like there is barely any product on your lips and it is super comfortable to wear throughout the day. It isn’t super drying so it doesn’t make your lips feel like they desperately need a drink which I love but since it is not super drying it is slightly transferrable. Meaning, when you drink from a cup it leaves a small trace of product, however, once it fully dries it really doesn’t leave much product. Also, the description makes note that the technology behind this product makes sure that it doesn’t affect color payoff and girllll, it does not. I used this product several times while working and it stayed on the entire day. This is important to me because I eat six small meals a day and drink about a gallon of water so if it was going to come off, it would have. I also love that as the day goes on you don’t need to reapply and if you do it doesn’t get cake-like and thick. In all honesty you really don’t need to touch this product after applying because it lasts all day. One last thing, the applicator is seriously THE COOLEST. At first I was scared it was going to be too big for my lips and make a mess but it actually hugged the shape of my lips perfectly and it picks up enough product that you don’t have to re-dip for more. The shade shown in this post is ‘Pink Power’.
Product – Bienfait UV SPF 50+: If you are looking for an amazing facial sunscreen then look no further. Aside from the fact it is 50+, it is super light-weight and drys almost instantly without leaving a greasy feeling. I love that it is good for all skin types [including sensitive skin] and it doesn’t really have a scent. Also, I love that it gives a matte finish which is not common for sunscreens and that it makes my skin feel extra smooth and soft.
Product – Visionnaire Crescendo: First, I did not realize you need to use this product for 28 days. With that being said, I am only in Phase 1 which is the first 14 nights but I love the way it makes my skin feel. One of my biggest skin concerns is my pores. I have one large pore on my face that I destroyed when I was in high school [ugh] and I have yet to find a product that has helped minimize it fully. I am eager to see what my skin/pores look like at the end of the 28 days but so far so good and I would easily recommend this product if you are looking to minimize wrinkles/fine lines and for any uneven skin texture because it has helped.
Pros: I seriously cannot explain how much I love all three of the products formulas. They are SO ultra-lightweight that you can barely feel them. I believe the matte shaker was described as a ‘second skin’ and that is the perfect description of how it feels. The color is so vibrant and it seriously lasts all day. I also love that the sunscreen is matte. That is HUGE for me because I don’t like my face looking like a giant greaseball throughout the day. I also like that the matte shaker and sunscreen were reasonably priced for luxury beauty products. I feel like the Visionnaire Crescendo is also on par with pricing for luxury beauty skincare products.
Cons: I really don’t have many cons. I wish that luxury beauty products didn’t cost as much as they do but honestly, you only have one skin so it’s okay to splurge and take care of your skin as long as the products actually put in the work.

Overall: I am happy to say I will continue using all three products. I would be interested in seeing what other colors are available in the Matte Shakers. I think the color above is stunning and playful.
