Lancome's Visionnaire Serum

(Update on the serum. Had to return it to Lancome)

After watching countless YouTube beauty vlogs, I have somewhat matured into a slightly more "girly" girl- well, slightly.

I crave makeup now. Sue me, it's addictive.

There's something about a fresh pan of eyeshadow or a blush with beautifully designed and intricate detailing that makes me squirm with utter joy on the inside. What have these beauty gurus done to me?!

Hence, I've gone a wee bit crazy on this month's makeup splurge- not in the number of items I got but how much I paid on this haul.

Lancome- Visionnaire Serum, RM295
Lancome- Maison Lancome blush (29, St. Honore collection), RM120
Kanebo- Lunasol Three Dimensional Eyes eyeshadow quad in 05 Deep Beige, RM185
Kanebo- Coffret D'or Beauty Sharp Designer in 01 Coral Orange, RM133 (Blush-RM108, Case-RM25)

I'll cover the Visionnaire serum in this post. It's my first ever skincare product from Lancome and I got to know about it from a beauty guru's YouTube vlog (RAEview). This serum is part of Lancome's latest Visionnaire range and has been garnering a lot of hype. The serum works on all skin types, correcting uneven skin tone, fine lines and blemishes. We've all come across that before, eh? Usually empty promises on products that do jack shit but cost a bomb. So I brought my skeptical butt over to Lancome's roadshow at MidValley and requested for a Visionnaire sample.

Used it in the night. Woke up next morning. Mind was blown.

Surprisingly, the serum delivered on making my skin smoother + evening out my skin tone + reducing redness around the nose + mouth. It's effectiveness gave me goosebumps. I purchased a bottle at the roadshow and as part of the promotion (now over), you'll get a mini skincare set with a purchase over RM450.

The effectiveness of this serum may differ among individuals depending on how you care for your skin and your lifestyle though. It worked well when I was getting enough rest + drinking lots of water but in the past week, I've been a night owl and haven't stayed hydrated so the effects of this serum has been minimal. So, if you lead an already healthy lifestyle, this serum will do wonders for you. If you eat unhealthily and don't maintain regular sleep, then you may get mixed results from this. All in all, it still makes a difference in your skin's suppleness and I think RM295 isn't a hefty investment for a serum that actually works.
Visionnaire retails at Lancome counters at RM295 (USD94) for 30ml.

Update: The mineral oil in this serum has caused me to break out so I've ceased using this. Will continue with this product until my skin's normal again just to confirm if it's the mineral oil in this serum. Those of you who break out to mineral oil may want to obtain a week's worth of Visionnaire samples before purchasing the actual product.
