Lancome, The French Touch 5 piece set- Review


The French Touch 5 piece collection aired as a Today's Special on HSN several weeks ago. This was a wonderful value at $75 and free shipping. It is still available for purchase for $92. The retail value is $138.

What You Get 

  • 4.2 fl. oz. Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover
  • .22 fl. oz. Hypnose Drama Mascara - Excessive Black  
  • .20 oz. Gloss in Love Sparkling Lipglaze - Blink Pink  
  • .01 oz. Le Stylo Eyeliner - Noir
  • .12 oz. Rouge in Love Lipcolor - Roses in Love 


Roses In Love

Blink Pink


The Bi-Facil eye makeup remover is one of the best at removing waterproof makeup. There are cheaper dupes on the market, and I would never pay full price for it, but getting it in a kit is always a bonus.

The Le Stylo retractable liner is new to me. This shade is not the blackest black. It is more of a dark charcoal. It is smooth and doesn't tug and seems to work well on the waterline. If you don't like a harsh, stark, black, this is for you.

The Rouge In Love lipstick formula is one of my favorites. Roses In love is a rose with a pink shimmer that is medium in coverage. It is comfortable and flattering and has enough blue base to be teeth whitening as well.

The Gloss in Love is another new formula to me. I love the push button release on the applicator. This shade is a warm pinky peach. I love it alone or on top of the lipstick. It has a nice smooth slip, but is not sticky. It is very comfortable to wear.

Hypnose Drama used to be my favorite mascara, and then I went off to another brand, and another brand, and am just now making my way back. I now have others I like more, but this is still a good one for volume and drama.

All in all, this is a great kit if you need the basics. The value is there, and was even better when it originally aired. Like all of Lancome's products, the quality is amazing. All ages could benefit from this collection.
