Lancome perfectionist: : Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24h Wear & Comfort Retouch-free Divine Perfection Foundation


Spring Base Classics – review

The reason why I have decided to put these two foundations together is the similarity in formula and longevity. Together with the season change, I usually go to the lighter foundations. At the end of January, I decided to try out two different spring classic foundations, claimed by some to be the holy grail of the skin base makeup. Such a positive opinion of products which are on a market for a few years now was a decisive factor during the shopping. The newly available products are very often overrated by many, for I do not know what reasons. Enjoy the review!

Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup and Teint Miracle Bare Skin Foundation Natural Light Creator have both fans and adversaries. It might have something to do with the fact that both Estée Lauder and Lancôme created several cult classics over the years, and the price of the products makes us more critical than we would be for high-street foundations.

At least, that what happened in my, and my sister’s case.

Standard 30 ml of products are filled with sleek glass containers with a handy pump dispenser. It makes them difficult to travel with, so when I had to take both of them to the plane, so my sister could confirm/disapprove my longevity test results of the foundations, I ended up taking the more promising option.


The Perfectionist’s 1W2 SAND seems to be a perfect shade for me.

The Teint Miracle in 01 BEIGE ALBATRE (detailed nb: 01 0N200), although one of the lightest shades in the range, has a strong yellow undertone.  I suggest you check the swatches on your skin, before the purchase (the specific number suggests the neutral color range of the foundation).


Products have a liquid/creamy consistency. They blend seamlessly into the skin, without the mask effect. But if you have chosen a slightly darker shade, use a buffing brush to even out the edges and apply some on your neck.


Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup

The covering properties are, according to me, the only differentiating factor, after one layer. The

Perfectionist can handle the skin discolorations and redness much better. It is one of the major pros of this foundation, the final appearance of the skin, even without the additional concealer. The second layer did not make my skin look even better, but the addition rubbing or buffing, depending on the day, would just encourage my pores to double in size. It was much better with the Idealist serum, applied before. But I skipped this step before the pictures were taken.

Teint Miracle Bare Skin Foundation Natural Light Creator

The Teint Miracle gives very light coverage. Some suggest it is the most suitable for the skin without issues. I say, if you have beautiful skin, drop this foundation, and spend your money on something that you can benefit from. It evens out the skin tone slightly. In my case, it just added some extra color to the skin, which was the result of my mistake. On the hand, the swatch looked just slightly different.

The Perfectionists, especially after one layer, looks beautiful and natural. It looks like nothing I have experienced before. It gave me an idea, how my skin would have looked without all the spots, you tend to stare in a mirror for a bit afterward.

The problem with the Teint Miracle starts over here.

When the foundation sets my skin starts to look worse. The wrinkles and dry patches are more visible, and do not get me wrong; wrinkles will always be enhanced after the foundation, but it seems to cling to them too much. Some high-street foundations perform much better, and they are noticeably cheaper.


Oh boy, I have tried. I did almost everything I could to prolong the staying power of the Perfectionist. I dropped the Morning Time Cleanser, afterward even the day cream, with using just the Idealist serum before. But it transfers easily after a few, top 4 hours. I wear glasses so it disappears from my nose after a walk to a bus stop. My sister gave it a good run on her, dry skin to combination skin. She agreed with 4 hours and transfer of the foundation if the face was gently rubbed.

When it comes to Teint Miracle, it will stay on my face for approximately the same about of time. The difference is the general appearance of the skin gets worse with time. The other foundation seems to dispersal more evenly, while Teint Miracle stays on everything besides your skin. If you ever decide to purchase it, I suggest your white-collar in the closet.

The lack of staying power is the main objective for both of the foundations. Setting with powder, changes in my skincare routine did not make any difference for me.

The Perfectionist is definitely a better choice from this tandem. It also has SPF of 25, in comparison with standard SPF15 in the Teint Miracle, which gives better UV protection throughout the day.

In my reviews, I usually avoid the producer’s promises. The main pros and cons of given foundations are gathered above. It might help you with your future purchase of its lack. I personally believe, that although the Perfectionist looks beautiful its staying power is more suitable for high-street foundation, which would be probably three times cheaper.

I had such a bad experience with Teint Miracle, that now it is in my giveaway box. I was patient and dedicated to testing it, just for the purpose of this review. I am a bit disappointed with it.

I recommend the Perfectionist Youth – Infusing Makeup from Estée Lauder used with a bit of powder and for longer staying power a few spritzes of fixing spray.

I got my at ICI Paris, but you can find them at local perfumeries, or try the links below.

Who Owns What In The Beauty Industry? – Beautiful With Brains

Do you know who owns your fave skincare and makeup brands?

You may think L’Oreal is its own brand. Wrong. It’s a beauty giant that owns Lancome, Shu Uemura and the Body Shop. Like Estee Lauder, the proud owner of 29 skincare and makeup brands, including MAC and Clinique.

In our fast-paced world, beauty brands change ownership fast, and they mostly end up in the hands of a few large corporations. *sighs*

Why is it important to know this?

Why You Need To Know Who Owns Your Face Skincare & Makeup Brands

Two reasons:

1. Easier-To-Find Dupes

Here’s a secret beauty brands don’t want you to know.

Large corporations love to save money. To cut down on production costs, they use the same active ingredients in both their high-end and low-end products. Then, they add different scents and texture to differentiate them.

That’s why Lancome Eau Micellaire Douceur and L’Oréal Paris Skin Perfection 3in1 Purifying Micellar Solution are almost exact dupes. Same owner, same active ingredients, different details to differentiate the brands in the eyes of the customers.

True, sometimes high-end products use more expensive ingredients and innovative technologies. But eventually, these technologies do trickle down into drugstore products, too.

You just need to wait a few months for the novelty to be over and you’ll hear L’Oreal come up with the same rare extract in Lancome…

Lesson learned: before you spend lots of money on luxury product, compare its ingredients to those of their less expensive sister brands.

2. More Conscious Choices

Knowing what beauty giant owns your fave skincare and makeup brands also helps you make conscious spending choices.

Let’s say you love an indie brand because they don’t test on animals. If tomorrow L’Oreal buys it, chances are you won’t want to support it anymore.

Or maybe you don’t like to give your money to corporations that engage in shady practices. I’ve heard several reports of small indie beauty brands that spilled all their manufacturing secrets to L’Oreal as part of the acquisition process, only for the giant to break the deal, dupe their products and put the small competitor out of business.


P.S. Wondering why I still promote L’Oreal owned brands on this website? My job is to give you all the information you need to make the right skincare choices, not to make these choices for you. Some people just like the products and don’t care who’s behind them. Don’t judge them badly because they don’t conform to your standards.

Here’s a list of who owns what in the beauty industry:

Estée Lauder Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup: It’s Your Skin But Heaps Better

I usually do an introduction to a beauty product I’m about to review before telling you what I think about it but today, I feel like I should just jump right in because straight up, this foundation was love at first swatch and application. I’ve never actually tried any foundations by Estée Lauder, not even their famous high-coverage Double Wear but I did have high expectations for this one given that the Double Wear foundation has received such rave reviews. Lo and behold, the Perfectionist foundation delivered and then some.

For glowing, perfected, more youthful skin, Estée Lauder introduces NEW Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup SPF 25, offering the next generation in age-defying skin-perfection. A first from the “serum experts,” this breakthrough foundation is infused with Estée Lauder’s youth-enhancing Perfectionist [CP+R] Serum technology to deliver real skincare benefits and transforms skin’s look and feel. This super-performing silky makeup glides on seamlessly leaving complexions looking luminously radiant, glowing and noticeably younger – the essence of beautiful skin.

This foundation has a liquid-to-powder texture, which is a pretty popular choice for foundations these days. It’s quite similar to Chanel’s Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation but not as runny. The shade I’m currently using is in Fresco which has cool undertones. Fresco was good to use in winter but I reckon I won’t be able to use it in summer when my skin warms up because the shade will be a tad too light. Coverage is not heavy; at most you’ll get about a medium.

The foundation is quick to dry and leaves a matte finish on the skin. It’s not overly matte, not chalky and doesn’t exacerbate my fine lines. Having said that, I don’t recommend setting the foundation with a matte compact powder. If you need to set the foundation, use a very light sweep of finely-milled translucent powder or any of the Guerlain Meteorites. Compact powder will be too heavy for the foundation and will make it look cakey on the skin.

This is a beautiful foundation and even though it gives the skin a matte finish, the “matte-ness” settle down after an hour or two and as the hours go by, you’ll be left with gorgeous, natural, your-skin-but-heaps-better skin. The staying power is pretty good too. I didn’t experience any fading even when I’ve hit the 10th hour mark. I actually prefer this foundation to the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet. Even though I do like the Chanel foundation, I find it quite overrated, to be honest.

I only realised this much later but this foundation is also infused with the Perfectionist [CP+R] serum (the one that comes in a purple bottle), which is the lifting and firming serum from the brand. It could just be a placebo effect on my part but before even before I realised that the foundation actually contains those serum ingredients, I thought it felt different on my skin, as though it was doing more than just being makeup. Again, like I said, it could just be a placebo effect but hey, I’m enjoying the “illusion” it gives. All you combo-skin folks will love this one.

Estee Lauder’s Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup SPF 25 retails at AU$68.00, comes in 16 shades and is available at Estée Lauder counters nationwide and online. Personally, I’d go for this than the Chanel foundation. It’s cheaper too!

What I like about it: Lightweight, non-greasy, very good for my combination skin, makes my skin look pretty damn good.

What I do not like about it: Nothing.

Have you tried this or any foundations by Estée Lauder? What about the famous Double Wear? Did you like it/them?

Lancome vs Estee Lauder Foundation: Which One Is Better?

I’ve written dozens of comparison articles but I’ve not written anything on Lancome vs Estee Lauder Foundation.

Yes, and you can check them here.

I don’t know how that has escaped me since there are quite a number of people looking for a comprehensive article on this.

If you’re reading this, you’re definitely one of the hundreds of people searching for a reliable source on this topic. Fortunately, I’ve decided to write that and I’m sure you’ll like your stay here.

Here is the deal:

In this article, I’m not going to talk a lot about both brands. I have another post coming up that’ll deal with that.

Update: Here is a link to the post talking about them. I reviewed serums from both brands too!

Instead, I’m going to be comparing different foundations from both Lancome and Estee Lauder. All of these will be their foundation and are some of the most popular for both of them.

Let’s get started. But first, let’s look at both brands, before looking at the products!

Lancome vs Estee Lauder: Know Your Brands

Estee Lauder

The company was officially launched in 1946. Lauder introduced her product by giving out free samples which were something unusual at that time.

Today, the Estee Lauder brand sells a full range of beauty products from skincare, makeup to fragrances.

Estée Lauder: Product Overview

  • Product Ingredients — Many of the ingredients used in Estee Lauder products can easily be found in other skincare brands in the market, such as hyaluronic acid and shea butter. Some face creams contain coenzyme Q10 with vitamin C and E.
  • Effectiveness — The brand certainly has a loyal following since it has been around for a long time. Some of the products like the Advanced Night Repair have won Beauty Awards for Allure’s Readers’ Choice Award in 2015 and 2016. Estee Lauder cleanser cleans the skin well and provides moisture and promotes supple skin.
  • Not Cruelty-Free — Estee Lauder has a list of vegan products, but the company still tests some of their products on animals.


Inspired by the French’s gracefulness, Lancome offers beauty products that range from cosmetics, fragrances, and skincare. Lancome’s skincare line consists of anti-aging creams, eye creams, makeup remover and more.

Most of the products are suitable for every age, and for both men and women. Everything about the products screams French grandeur.

The Lancome symbol defines femininity and beauty, and it’s also because of the brand founder’s obsession with roses.

Lancome Product Overview

  • Product Ingredients — Even though the brand has been in the beauty industry for some time now, there is an issue with the formulation of the products primarily from the skincare range. Some of the products contain synthetic fragrances, which can aggravate the skin.
  • Effectiveness — Lancome eye cream, for example, under-deliver and are a bit overpriced. The creams, however, do show results. This is mostly due to synthetic ingredients added to help produce short-term healthy-looking skin rather than truly nourishing it.
  • Not A Cruelty-Free Brand — Unfortunately, this high-end brand is not a cruelty-free company. They have tested their products in China, which requires any foreign cosmetic brands to test their products on animals before approving the brand to enter the Chinese market.

Now, let’s go and compare some of their foundations!

Lancôme vs Estée Lauder Foundation

Here, you’ll find a brief review of each foundation followed by comparison.

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24h Makeup All Skin Types vs Estée Lauder Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup

A brief look at the Lancôme Teint Idole and the Estée Lauder Double Wear will reveal some similarities that might make it difficult to choose between them.

However, there are a lot of differences that make them suitable for slightly different purposes. As a result, it becomes easier to go for one that suits your situation.

The first thing I’ll mention is that the Estée Lauder foundation is more expensive than the Lancôme Teint Idole. The price differential is not by a large margin and they both cost more than forty US dollars.

But if you want to save some dollars, I recommend you go for the Lancôme Teint Idole.


Some users noticed that the Estée Lauder gives a matte finish after the application, whereas, the Lancôme leaves a smooth, glossy coat.

While Estée Lauder is suitable for both dry and oily skin, the Lancôme may be more suitable for sensitive skin as it doesn’t dry it.

If you have Melasma, the Estée Lauder can help you cover it up completely. It can also help you cover adult scars and acne.

But if you’re looking for that foundation that’s free from fragrance, oil, and well suited to sensitive skin, then the Teint Idole is your best choice. It’s non-comedogenic and transfer-free.

User Reviews and Opinions

Many users love the Lancôme for not wearing out throughout the day while also doing well on oily skin. The Estée Lauder, on the other hand, is recommended for anyone that wants to camouflage skin imperfections.

The Double Wear Makeup also comes in a lot of varieties and colors while the Lancome is only available in one color.


If you’re looking to get a set so you can interchange the color to match different styles, then the Estee Lauder is your best choice. Not only is it lightweight but it can easily come off on your clothing if it stains it.

Compared to the Lancôme, I think the Estée Lauder is more popular among users. This doesn’t mean it’s better but at least you know it has worked for a lot more people in helping to make their skin luminous and healthy-looking.


Finally, both are worth the money, especially if you’re able to achieve exactly what you’re buying them for. The Estee Lauder is most suitable for covering up imperfections on the skin while the Lancome is a better foundation for all skin types.

Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup vs Lancome Renergie Lift Makeup Foundation

The next on our list is the Perfectionist foundation from Estee Lauder and the Renergie Lift from Lancome. How do they compare and which one should you go for?

Let’s discuss that:

As usual, the first thing I looked at is the price of both products. The Lancome Renergie Lift is extremely expensive, with almost $15 difference to the Estee Lauder Perfectionist. Both are very good products so this is a significant difference.

While Lancome claims to come with skin-friendly ingredients, the Estee Lauder promises you youthful and radiant look and protection from UV rays.

Although Lancome is available in only two color variants, there are over 10 colors available for Estee Lauder that you can choose from. If you take your overall look and style very important, you may want to go for Estee Lauder for this reason.

Note that:

Many users also commend both products for their great coverage. Accordingly, some love the fact that the Estee Lauder Perfectionist isn’t too heavy but quite creamy, which makes it possible for it to even out the skin tone.

Another thing worthy of note is that the Lancome Renergie might be discontinued anytime soon while the Estee Lauder is still on the scene. As a result, you may only be able to get that by the time you’re reading this article.

That’s an important note to have at the back of your mind as you read this section.

Lancôme vs Estée Lauder Foundation: Conclusion

Finally, this article is coming to an end…

A lot has gone into writing this article. I had to look at a lot of resources and compare a lot of products from both Lancôme and Estée Lauder. Fortunately, I was able to find a few dissimilarities between both brands.

From my research, I found Estée Lauder to be the more popular brand compared to Lancôme. They have more foundation and makeup products to choose from with some of their products coming in a lot of color variants.

I find this makes the selection a lot easier compared to a brand that only has a few products to choose from.


The other thing I found is that most Estée Lauder products seem to be popular among users. This is something you won’t find with many other brands, including Lancôme.

Again, most of the reviews on them have a positive ring to them. This shows that users are buying their products, using them, and loving them.

For that, I’ll recommend you check out Estée Lauder foundation and makeup products when you’re ready to buy. This isn’t to say that Lancôme doesn’t have good products or that it isn’t a good brand.

However, in terms of comparison of the best brand to buy your foundation, Estée Lauder is the winner here.

Hi Guys!!!

I hope you are all having a beautiful day!! I know it’s been forever since I’ve posted over here, but today I was feelin’ it! As you may know, I recently launched Woke Up Like This – a completely clean, cruelty free, silicone free foundation with no artificial fragrance, parabens, mineral oil, talc, phthalates, PEGS, isododecane, and fillers. Most foundations on the market do have a silicone base, and this can cause congestion and clog your pores because it places a film over the skin (which is also why it has that nice blurring effect). I wanted this to be fully silicone free while still giving the skin a perfected finish. It is also a completely non-comedogenic formula that won’t clog pores, with skin nourishing ingredients that condition and protect the skin’s moisture barrier throughout the day. As far as the coverage, it is a medium to full buildable coverage foundation with a radiant glowy finish. For my very oily girls, you will want to set this – it’s not matte! I did this because I feel that full coverage foundations look more natural, fresh, and skin-like when they have a radiance. I am also a weirdo that likes looking borderline oily throughout the day.

I just posted a swatch video on my channel of all 20 shades of the Lawless Woke Up Like This Foundation, and wanted to create a companion shade guide so you can compare each shade to comparables in other brands! I went through some of the best selling foundations and here is a comprehensive list:


PRISTINE – fair with cool pink undertones

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear: 1C1 Cool Bone
  • Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk: 3. 75

ParfumMir – fragrances from all over the world | fragrance notes | composition of perfumes

And these modern Clima from Lankom from the La Collection series are not bad at all, but not tooooo, and rather weak, and there is no such depth, charm, femininity of course. But I also save them, I save them, it seems that they are no longer released in this form, only a toilet in a spray, and there is even more disappointment, coarse, colder, prickly … But probably such an insult is only because I judge in comparison with vintage native in a blue marble cube box with a gold title.

Lovely ladies, lovers, connoisseurs and adorers of vintage Klim perfume. I also hunt and buy them. Memories of them do not let us down at all, they are really divine, unique and inimitable, even though similarities with some other fragrances have been found, it is still not the same, of course. And to this day, authentic vintage has a tremendous impact on us, in the most beautiful way. But 98% of the vintage that we allegedly have on sale now is a fake, very high-quality in terms of packaging, the box and bottle are of almost excellent quality, you can’t find fault with it, and the contents at the first breath are kind of recognizable, but, but that’s all, that’s it everything ends, then they really do not open up, weak, do not touch at all. Painfully there are a lot of them now, don’t you notice? And everything is in good condition, and everything is new, and already in mica. These comrades are from Armenia, I have experience with them, both good (in terms of Soviet perfumery) and, unfortunately, bad (European). And they are under different names on ebee, but this is one office. Klima and Ellipse are simply inexhaustible, in perfect condition. Strange, huh? Both light and green, sometimes of a poisonous shade, well, there cannot be Klim. the same story can be with earlier versions of Klima, I mean fake contents are poured into genuine bottle boxes.So far, it seems that only Klima and Ellipse have released a decent batch of an excellent fake. Sorry if my comment looks offtopic.


Miracle Cushion and Teint Idole Ultra Cushion

From now on, Lancôme’s portfolio includes two tonal cushions at once: the familiar Miracle Cushion and the new Teint Idole Ultra Cushion. The beauty department of ELLE conducted a test drive of both and found out how these products would be divided into their target audience.

Miracle Cushion

I like it when the face with makeup looks clean and at the same time well-groomed, and not hidden under a thick layer of makeup. The main thing is to find the right products. Cush Miracle Cushion from Lancôme became my personal discovery. The product merges with the skin, evens out the tone, tightens pores and creates a slight chill (the spruce needle extract in the formula is responsible for this).

To go too far with the amount of funds is almost impossible.The applicator, made from the same fabric as the surf suits, picks up just as much as needed and ensures perfect tone distribution from the center to the periphery.

Similar materials:

It is convenient for me to hold it by passing three fingers under the ribbon. If I need to add density, I just push harder on the pad.A little blush and mascara and I smile at my reflection.

Pro’s Opinion “Classic kushn is perfect for girls who prefer the most natural effect. The product allows you to correct the tone, but delicately enough to leave room for the natural glow of the skin. ” – Anastasia Meheda, Lancôme make-up artist.

Teint Idole Ultra Cushion

For a long time Miracle Cushion was my clear favorite.I loved how he instantly evened out his tone and woke up his face in the morning. I loved the light, wet shine and refreshing coolness it gave it.

But I have combination skin, and during the day I had a desire to fix my makeup, and if I was going out somewhere in the evening, I would completely reapply it. Therefore, the new Teint Idole Ultra Cushion is for perfectionists like me.

Similar materials:

In the morning I apply it in one layer, barely touching the skin with a pad.And only in the center of the face, where more careful control of the shine is required. Teint Idole Ultra Cushion gives the skin a natural matte finish, as if I applied three products at once – primer, tone and fixing powder. But at the same time, the annoying feeling of several layers of cosmetics on the face is absolutely excluded. And of course, it’s the perfect evening make-up.

Pros Opinion “ Teint Idole Ultra Cushion stands out from others for its impeccable camouflaging ability.The pledge of this is the technology Jel-Liquid : when applied, the consistency turns from viscous to liquid, the product lies on the skin easily and smoothly, leaving a velvety finish ”- Anastasia Meheda, Lancôme make-up artist.

Oksana Borets: “I am a perfectionist, I like to make people happier”

How to become a makeup artist?

Oksana, what profession did you come from as makeup artists?

There was no profession as such.Yes, I have an art education, but I understood that you just couldn’t offer it to people. Therefore, in 2009 I got a job as a sales consultant for Shiseido in one of the Moscow cosmetic stores. I didn’t just tell clients what products to choose, but I also had to do something like a test make-up. I remember one of the clients was even going to pay me for it, she liked the result so much. We also held general meetings of sellers and promo teams of makeup artists who traveled around the country and held Shiseido client days.I realized that I want to be in their ranks and do make-up. The director then put forward several conditions to me, I fulfilled them and after a couple of months I was packing my suitcases on my first business trip.

So you started making makeup on a whim?

Because of my artistic hobbies, I drew excellently, and I had the highest sales of decorative cosmetics. In addition, corporate trainings – facial structure, massage basics, skin care rules – became an excellent basis for me.Without this knowledge, you cannot become a make-up artist. It was good for me as well. It’s scary to say, but before joining this industry, I washed my face with soap and scrubbed my skin with hard sponges.

Did you get accustomed to the Shiseido promo team?

As if I always worked there (laughs). In fact, these were difficult, but fun times: constant flights from city to city, a frantic schedule, a lot of acquaintances and new experiences. For the three years that I worked at such a pace, I did not take vacations, at most, I went to the cinema a couple of times on the weekend! But somehow I came to the “Golden Apple” in Chelyabinsk for client days. I liked the city, then I looked here again … And now there is a family, their own workshop and hundreds of girls who come to learn from me make-up, hairstyles, and self-care.

Do you really need to learn this art, or will it do just that?

Unfortunately, I often walk down the street, look at the passing girls and think: “Lord, it would be better if you didn’t wear makeup at all than like this.” A course like “Make Your Own Makeup Artist” is necessary. Especially if your skin is not perfect, but you want to look your best every minute! To take good care of yourself, you need to know the basics.To draw arrows or eyebrows, you need to know the basics. To find a tone for your face, you need to know the basics. But at the same time, the courses are different. You can gather 85 people in a room, show something on a model, and none of them even picks up a brush. I invite a maximum of four people to the groups in order to control the work of each student, to catch mistakes in time. Plus, in my course there is definitely a lesson in skin care, this is the base, you can’t do without it. Sometimes I am pleased to meet my students at some parties, events: even tone, graceful eyebrows, red lips, everything is clear.This means that the classes were not in vain, I did not work in vain.

There are artists out of their heads, and there are those who take ideas, connect and get something of their own. I’m just working on ideas, I’m so comfortable. I can take a few creative makeup ideas as a basis and make my own makeup that suits a particular person.

Do you consider yourself a popular craftsman?

Oh, I’m one of those people who grew up in the Soviet temper: you need to be more modest and more diligent.I have my own studio, but I don’t shout about it at all corners, I don’t throw an opening party. Even your competition: I have not written about it anywhere, I have not popped at every corner about the victory. I am pleased that people highly value my work, it gives strength for further development.

Are you continuing to study? Who do you look up to?

Art education helps to understand what needs to be corrected in a person’s face with the help of cosmetics. But if I don’t know about new products, I won’t be able to work normally.I am learning from masters who are famous in the fashion world. At the same time, I do not like the work of foreign makeup artists. They seem to me some kind of “dirty”. I follow the work of Denis Kartashov (I attended his training twice), Daria Kholodnykh, Olga Tomina. They are creative people, in their images you can pick up something new for your makeup, draw inspiration.

Chelyabinsk and arrows

How do these creative ideas fit in with Chelyabinsk?

Almost nothing (laughs).Creative make-up is for photo shoots, shocking projects. And for every day – a classic. It’s just that if a master knows how to do cool creative make-up, then he will cope with classic nude, evening or smoky for one or two.

What fashion trends can you single out now?

Beauty is in fashion now and always. Better to stick to the same three pillars: nude, smokey and evening make. Yes, at one time everyone was fond of graphic eyebrows. But how to wear them in everyday life? Same with arrows: classic lines look attractive.But black feathers all over the eyelid are already strange. Imagine now that the eyelid is also “closed”, where is the arrow to draw here?

People think that I do my makeup like the picture they show as a reference. And I do it the way it really suits them.

And where is this border, between “beautiful”, “bold” and “wtf, what’s wrong with her face”?

Everything is very individual. Someone comes, asks for a bright make-up, and shows very nude options as an example.And someone hides their eyes behind a killer smokey and thinks that this is not the limit. I do not hesitate to tell the client what she is doing wrong. Of course, choosing very delicate wording. And you know, they are even grateful: who else will tell them that completely different shadows match the color of their eyes? In theory, people pay money for such consultations (laughs). When I am asked to do something completely inappropriate, I simply adjust the makeup to my taste. And the clients like the result. Here comfort is also very important: I use luxury cosmetics, high-quality brushes and make sure that the client can see all stages of work in the mirror.

Minimum in cosmetic bag

By the way, about cosmetics. Is it possible to achieve the effect of expensive products with budgetary funds?

Girls come to me to study who use, for example, a budget tone for the face. They like everything: it seems to lie flat, does not flow, persistent. But they try a similar luxury product with me and see the difference. I believe that you can spend money on yourself – luxury cosmetics take care of the skin much better, do no harm, hold on better and feel much more pleasant on the face.

The minimum cosmetic set, say, for a vacation?

Two things are important. If the skin allows you to do without tone, and if you already have eyebrows (that is, they are dyed and decorated, ed.), Then you can pack care products in a suitcase, a palette of eyebrow shadows (they can also be used for eyelids), lip gloss and a brush. And if the skin is problematic, then be sure to tone. Better waterproof to emerge like a mermaid, and not a monster with a “floated” face.

Top 5 makeup products that you recommend?

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer: It is both on the eyes and on the face.
  • Diorskin Nude
  • Foundation
  • Lancome Juicy Shaker Lip Oil Color.
  • If lipsticks, then Make up for ever.
  • And for eyebrows and eyes – five-color palettes from Manly PRO.

Oksan, what are your plans for the future?

I have several master classes planned for the fall.And not only for make-up, but also for hairstyles (I started to deal with hair spontaneously, one of the clients asked me to do makeup for the make-up and away we go!). Plus, I take pictures, though I don’t advertise my activities too much. It’s interesting for me to be creative, for this I even put an easel in the workshop. And I would also move, for example, to Kazan. But with a child, this plan no longer seems so easy. And maybe I will continue to experiment with my own appearance!

90,000 Alberto Morillas –

Alberto Morillas occupies a worthy place among the most famous perfumers of our time, who collaborated with many leading perfume giants such as Bvlgari, Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, Cartier, Chopard, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Rentzo, Lancome, Lanvina, Oscar de la Roberto Cavalli, Salvador Dali, Thierry Mugler, Valentino, Versace, Yves Saint Laurent and others. In the art of a perfumer, the main thing, according to Morillas, is the ability and ability to think creatively and outside the box.From his rich life experience and a huge amount of knowledge accumulated by him, combined with vivid imagination and bold imagination, this “hidalgo from perfumery” creates new wonderful fragrances that can give pleasure, dizzy and delight its connoisseurs.

Winner of the prestigious Prix Francois Coty award for achievements in the field of perfumery, founded in honor of the great François Coty, Alberto Morillas is generous in his genius and is ready to share his success with no less eminent colleagues, often creating compositions in a duet.Together with Ilias Ermenidis, several fragrances were created for Givenchy: Givenchy Blue Label Pour Homme, Givenchy Greenergy, Givenchy Oblique Fast Forward, Givenchy Pour Homme; for Lancome, Calvin Klein, Giorgio Armani he created several fragrances in a duet with Harry Fremont, these are Lancome Miracle, Giorgio Armani Sensi, and a pair from Calvin Klein: One and One Graffiti. Together with Annie Buzantian he created compositions for Azzaro – Azzaro Now Woman; Giorgio Armani – Emporio Armani White for women, Tommy Hilfiger- Tommy, in collaboration with Olivier Cresp and Annick Menardo – Giorgio Armani Armani Attitude fragrance; with Emilio Valeras – Loewe Esencia Femme, with Nicolas Mamounas – Rochas Byzance.But the most fruitful for Morillas was the collaboration with Jacques Cavalier, they created the M7 fragrances for Yves Saint Laurent, Van Cleef and Arpels Zanzibar men, Van Cleef and Arpels Murmure, Oscar de la Renta Intrusion, Givenchy Hot Couture, Carolina Herrera Chic and Calvin Klein Truth. , have become true masterpieces of perfumery art. For several years now he has been collaborating with Cavalle Morillas in the Swiss campaign Firmenich, which unites several famous “noses”.

But before getting to Firmenich, Morillas successfully graduated from the School of Beaux Arts of Geneva (Geneva School of Fine Arts), and even earlier his family went through a difficult period of forced immigration.The Morillas family, one of the noblest and richest in Spain, was forced to leave their native Spain during the Franco regime.

Creativity Morillas successfully and harmoniously combines restraint, respectability and some scrupulousness, the elegant manners of the Geneva “cream of society”, cool alpine meadows, well-groomed cities with a hot temperament of Spanish blood, hot Spanish sun, passion of flamenco and violent emotions of bullfighting. From these components Morillas’ own signature was formed, recognizable by connoisseurs of perfumery.He is often described as being spontaneous, risky, and going against established restrictions and rules.

The master tries to use a large number of expensive natural ingredients, and the composition can be repeatedly changed, supplemented, striving to achieve absolute perfection. The composition might seem perfect to any other aroma lover, but the perfectionist Alberto Morillas strives to bring it to the absolute, without the slightest flaw.

This is the perfect perfume created in 2008 by Morillas for the world famous house Bvlgari, and called Omnia Green Jade. The perfumer was inspired to create this fragrance by a precious stone – green jade. JADE is translated from English as Jade, the new fragrance has become the embodiment of the elegance and perfection of this aristocratic stone. The composition opens with a spicy accord of spring water and green mandarin, which immediately gives the fragrance its characteristic spontaneity and sensuality, the central notes are represented by a composition of jasmine, pear blossom and white peony, and in the trail – pistachios, musk and spruce.

Morillas himself, describing his creation, said that he created a perfume composition from a cascade of life-giving and delightful freshness of flower petals, combined with the mysterious and unusual texture of exotic musk and white spruce, while thinking about the color of the stone, about the play of green, yellow and white shades, energy hidden in a mineral that symbolizes wealth, beauty and luxury. An unusual bottle of jade color, made in the form of two fastened links of one chain, attracts with intricate and non-trivial forms, and the green color symbolizes energy and renewal, thereby emphasizing the character of the fragrance: lively, changeable and feminine.

Another perfume from Morillas created for Bvlgari, Omnia Amethyste, is inspired by the idea of ​​the stone scent, dedicated, as you might guess from the name, to another precious stone – amethyst, symbolizing harmony and regal grandeur. The bottle is kept in the same concept, now painted in the lilac color of amethyst and silver. The composition of the fragrance, consisting of extract of maple syrup and pink bitter grapefruit, combined with floral bliss, the sweetness of lilac iris and Bulgarian rose, accords of heliotrope and wood warmed by the sun, is similar to the shimmer of this stone.

And one more fragrance belonging to the “mineral” series created jointly by Morillas and Bvlgari – Omnia Crystalline, dressed in a silvery-white bottle of the same shape as the previous ones. This fragrance is dedicated to transparent crystals that dazzle with their lunar brilliance. The fragrance really turned out to be crystal clear and fresh Japanese pear, lotus, bamboo and woody aroma of balsa tree create a seductive, delicate, playful and immaculate composition, symbolizing a unique feminine tenderness, loyalty and attractiveness.

This fragrance is an updated version of the previously released perfume Omnia , , which is completely in line with fashion trends. Spicy – woody, oriental scent Omnia consists of an unusual combination of cardamom, nutmeg, sandalwood, vanilla, ginger, tangerine, wood, spicy cloves, lotus, almonds, cinnamon, pepper, chocolate, tea and saffron. The bottle, painted in silver-orange tones, also looks like intersecting links, which can symbolize infinity – the infinity of pleasure from this amazing fragrance, which is a real fusion of the past, future and present, the unity of different languages, cultures and tastes.

Sensi – this is how the word “feelings” sounds in Italian. Our whole life, the events taking place, the people around us fill us with a whole range of feelings, diverse in their manifestations and shades. This range of senses is skillfully conveyed in a fragrance developed by Alberto Morillas for Giorgio Armani in a duet with Gary Fremont. Built on the contrasts of warmth and cold, love and hate, the future and the past, the hardness of softness, this sensual and passionate scent is created for a changeable female nature, succumbing to her feelings and following the dictates of the heart rather than the mind.The aromas of acacia and kaffir lime, barley, jasmine, benzoin and rosewood make up a complex and contradictory composition, changeable like a woman’s heart.

One of the most famous and popular creations of Estee Lauder – “Pleasures”, since 1995, has been stirring the hearts of ladies “wearing” these perfumes and their fans for more than one year. The fragrance was repeatedly modified, renewed, and now Albert Morillas got down to business. His pursuit of excellence knows no bounds, he set himself the difficult task of bringing perfection to absolute perfection and achieved it – the result was a new fragrance from the Pleasures line Pleasures Bloom, which in translation means “Flower of pleasure”, indeed, this flawless floral arrangement will delight all connoisseurs of beauty.

And another wonderful floral scent belongs to the creative genius Alberto Morillas. Created in 1993 by L`Eau D`Issey Florale for the Issey Miyake brand, by the beginning of this year it was released in a new updated version, enclosed in a gift box. The reissue was dedicated to the beginning of the new year, the symbol of which was the metal rabbit. The fragrance was released in a limited edition, so it will soon become a collectible perfumery rarity. An elegant, sophisticated, delicate – pink bottle of an elongated conical shape created in an oriental style contains a surprisingly light, weightless – delicate composition L`Eau d`Issey Florale, which literally envelops its owner with the scent of a rose.Rosebuds, rose petals, the scent of leaves and stems of a rose bush are set off by tangerines, lilies and wood, creating a sensation around themselves with unique sophistication, freshness and romance.

90,000 Towards perfection (the best mascara, the best concealer and the best shimmer) – cosmetic bag Girls, you have helped me out more than once with your advice and experience, and again I ask you for help!
Now I am covered with a wave of perfectionism, it seems there is a lot, but I want it even better, more beautiful, more convenient, more effective.I have three diverse questions, so I ask those who have already had experience of using these products to respond. So …

First of all, I want to raise the issue of mascara. Its lashes are of medium length, light, not thick. Wanted: maximum elongation, volume and twist and half a kingdom to boot. I’m sure you will say: Yes, a lot of options are suitable for these requirements! This is true, but there are several nuances. My favorites at one time were Diorshow (Iconic, Blackout), YSL EFC, Lancome Hypnose (though waterproof).Out of the mass, I dearly love Max Factor False Lash Effect (and also False Lash Effect Fusion). Alas, as I said there are some buts: Diorshow and YSL are amazing in effect, but I am very depressed by their tendency to dry out very quickly. I would even say is very fast. Plus, due to the fact that I have inexpressive eyelashes, and the sense of proportion does not always turn on in time, the risk of “dyeing” the eyelashes is very high, because of this mascara, not only looks and lies disgusting, but also crumbles. My Lancome is waterproof and although everyone praises Hypnose, the waterproof version makes hell out of my eyelashes.It instantly dries up on the eyelashes, tangling them like wires. And instead of beautiful eyelashes, you get an abstract-artistic mess. Perhaps a similar incident will only happen with the waterproof version. Max Factor is good for everyone, except that the thought of what is better still pulsates.
As a result, after a break from a bunch of information and looking at millions of swatches, I came to the conclusion that I should consider the following mascaras:

From left to right: 1) Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme 2) YSL Effet Faux Cils Shocking 3) Lancome Hypnose Drama 4) Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Sexy Blacks 5) Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Feline Blacks

An important nuance that I wear contact lenses and I have sensitive eyes (they react sharply to strong wind, snow and bright sun – they start watering and mascara is simply washed off from them, especially from the lower eyelashes).Therefore, it is important that the mascara is durable enough and does not irritate the eyes. Well, I still want a certain naturalness along with drama (so that the eyelashes are wow, but like your own))) What can you say about those products from the list? Or maybe suggest your favorites?

Next, I choose a concealer / corrector (you need something in between – not as light as a concealer and not as dense as a concealer), combi skin, occasional breakouts and redness. It is necessary to lighten the area under the eyes and shadow zones, cover redness and pimples well.I have not the lightest skin, but not very tanned, skin with a warm undertone. The following products are on the agenda:

From left to right: 1) Helena Rubinstein Magic Concealer 2) Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit

If everything with HR is more or less clear in terms of shade (I plan to take 02 – medium tone) , then with Bobbi Brown complete confusion.
First of all, I would like to hear reviews about the concealer itself, as well as the recommended shade (unfortunately, there is nowhere to “try on” and test the shade, and I don’t really trust the monitor’s color rendition).Surely there is, for example, a popular or most famous shade for a skin tone like mine, well, or I just amuse myself)) I really hope for your advice.

And finally the third: please advise a shimmer “for every day”. There are meteorites in the balls, but you want something that will adequately cover your entire face without turning it into a pearlescent pancake. I like the effect of meteorites, but I want something more persistent and more effective. The preference is still for dry textures rather. First of all, I consider MAC, Bobbi Brown, as well as almost all brands that can be bought online (well, offline in Russia).

Thank you in advance for any feedback and advice and hope that thanks to you, I will be posting reports and swatch of some really great products soon!

Famous perfumers. Jacques Cavalier – id77 – LiveJournal

Hello dear.
Last time we recalled Edmond Roudnitska: https: //
And today I propose to talk about Maestro Jacques Cavallier, who works for Firmenich and creates fragrances for the world’s largest brands, including Christian Dior, Givenchy, Bvlgari, Issey Miyake and many more.In 2004 he was awarded the international François Coty prize. And there is a reason! One of the perfumer’s teachers, his “creative brother” was Alberto Morrilas.

Jacques Cavalier was born in Grasse, his father and grandfather were perfumers, his childhood was spent among fragrant jasmine fields, where he loved to pick flowers – all these factors predetermined the fate of the future perfumer. At the age of ten, he often spent time in laboratories where fragrances were created. While studying English and Spanish at the University of Nice, he already worked for Charabot.It was there that he learned all the secrets of perfumery. Every morning from 5 to 7 o’clock he studied the properties of various ingredients with his father. Three years later, he joined Naarden and PFW. Since 1990 he has been working for Firmenich, where in 2000 he became a leading perfumer.

Jacques Cavalier can create fragrances in completely different styles. In his compositions, there are both light fresh notes and deep dark shades. Jacques is a perfectionist perfumer: he has been synthesizing the perfect jasmine accord for twenty-five years.

Amandine Clerc-Marie – Perfumers – Perfume

Amandine Claire-Marie (AMANDINE CLERC-MARIE)

Amandine is very shy, but her restraint and modesty is just a mask behind which a kind person with amazing talent is hidden. Only talking about her magical world of fragrances, she reveals herself, showing her bright, lively character. She is a natural born perfumer. By creating fragrances, Amandine communicates with the world and expresses her feelings.
Amandine inherited her passion for perfumery from her mother, who worked in Paris for the Givaudan company.The happy hours spent in the laboratory working on perfume ingredients predetermined Amandine’s career. “I feel like this work has always been close to me.”

Although it may seem now that Amandine’s choice of profession was obvious, she did not immediately make it. Two years of studying medicine did not inspire Amandine, but provided her with an excellent knowledge of chemistry and taught her discipline. This helped her easily enter ISIPCA and was the beginning of the formation of her famous “perfectionism”.

She soon joined Robertet in Grasse, first as an intern and then in Paris with Michel Almarak, who “took her under his wing” and opened the doors to the world of perfumery for her. This impeccable professional union has resulted in 10 years of creative collaboration between two talented designers who have created for brands such as Dunhill Signature, Lui de Rochas, Chloé and others.
Amandine learned from her mentor perseverance, exactingness and patience. These qualities are inherent in Amandine and in everyday life, thanks to her profession.Natural curiosity and tenacity always forced her to seek new combinations of ingredients and new notes. This is a unique feature of her inimitable style.

Amandine has 2 hobbies: home design and gardening. She enjoys working on creating harmonious interiors and aesthetically transforming the world around her.
Exactly the same approach Amandine uses in the creation of fragrances, drawing inspiration from the very “heart” of one or another ingredient.
Amandine has a particular fondness for the aromas of rose, iris and violet.

Perfumers repeat the same movements, mixing ingredients, but it is impossible to “repeat” the state of inspiration. Well-known ingredients, which you study thoroughly, can create countless new combinations that open up incredible prospects. Even having worked in this field for many years, you never cease to be amazed at the enchanting variety of arising aromas, and this is a source of inspiration for new achievements.
Amandine needs incentives and motivation, so she is always looking for new ways and responds to interesting proposals.One of them was an invitation to the creative team of Firmenich in 2011. “I wanted to try something new.”

Amandine fragrances are always special, thanks to their distinctive features: the balance of creativity and professionalism, as well as the strong personality of the perfumer.

As a humble person, Amandine does not like to talk about herself. She just likes to create the fragrances, the individual steps, the production itself.To be inspired by new ideas of fragrances, and then to bring them to life – this is the passion that Amandine has always carried within herself. Amandine is a very visual person, so she draws inspiration mainly from movements, colors and shapes to transform them into her unusual fragrances. For them, the art of creating perfume is akin to architecture; First of all, you need a solid foundation on which to build your structure. Amandine creates her fragrances to evoke emotions. In her personal life, Amandine is always ready for new adventures and full of energy.She loves to reinvent herself and her home over and over again. This is why she moves regularly to start over with her surroundings. Besides creating perfumes, Amandine is passionate about traveling. All she needs to feel at home is her family, which takes her with them wherever they go.

Three things Amandine cannot live without:

Motorcycles – “Motorcycles are a true family tradition.
