Putting side by side Lancôme and L’Oreal Paris is a bit more off that anyone could chew, but, on the other hand, only good things can come out of it. Or at least, we hope we got our eye on the ball.

L’Oreal Paris may be the best thing since the sliced bread- after all, as we speak, it is world’s largest cosmetics company. It was born in France, around 1900 (more than a century of experience!) and still has its main headquarters in France.

How big is…big?

L’Oreal Paris creates nowadays products for hair-color, skin care, sun protection, makeup, perfumes, hair and develops activities related to tissue engineering, dermatology, toxicology, biopharmaceutical  research fields.

Inside the main office building of L’Oreal from France we find world’s largest hair salon with no less than 90 hairdresser working there. They always try new products on volunteer customers.

L’Oreal has been working on finding an alternative method to animal testing. This how Episkin was born, a reconstructed skin model that helps L’Oreal not to test its products on animals.

What about Lancôme ?

Lancôme is also a French brand, a little bit younger than L’Oreal (like 30 years younger), but has become part of L’Oreal Luxury cosmetics for some while- hence the unusual comparison.

Lancôme creates fragrances, skin care and make up products. It has given to the cosmetic area the revolutionary LR2412, an ingredient working its miracles against aging symptoms of skin.

Lancôme is also famous thanks to its Hypnose mascara, one of the most amazing mascara you could buy today.

And the winner is..?

The customer wins from this all the way. Both of these manufacturers are active on social media area and no less than 400 staff members of L’Oreal Paris are daily posting contents on Facebook.

You only have to throw an eye to see how Lancôme’s products are, in most cases, more expensive. This doesn’t mean that L’Oreal Paris is lower quality, though. Lancôme uses more expensive ingredients, luxurious recipients…it’s about pampering also.

In the end, the ball is in your court. You can use the famous Lancôme Hypnose Mascara for your eyelashes and a good L’Oreal eye cleanser remover. You do what fits your needs and …pocket J

When we talk L’Oreal vs. Lancôme first things that comes to mind is:

L’Oreal Youth Code Rejuvenating Anti-Wrinkle Super-Concentrated Serum vs. Lancôme Advanced Génifique.

Youth Code Anti-Wrinkle serum of L’Oreal contains Pro-gen technology ten times higher in concentration. This means the serum gives back the skin its youth, softness and luminosity.

Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique improves 10 signs of youth, going from elasticity, sagginess to skin tone. This only needs a week to start its wonders on your skin: fine lines become softer, the skin tones get even. The serum absorbs fast into the skin and a little goes a long way. This lightweight serum helps with the acne scars, gives no outbreaks and addresses to oily, dry and combination skin.

Some drops of L’Oreal Youth Code Rejuvenating serum make your skin feel soft, hydrated and nourishes. Its elegant glass bottle should be handled carefully, though. The serum absorbs quickly into the skin and gives your skin a nice, subtle, citrus scent. It has a hygienic dropper and it’s easy to use just before your typical moisturizer.

No less than 10 aspects of your skin improve when using Lancôme Advanced Génifique: elasticity, firmness, fine lines, texture, skin tone, sagginess, resiliency, wrinkles, and clarity. A self-loading dropper gives you the right dose for each use.

You get the best results with L’Oreal Youth Concentrated Rejuvenating Anti-Wrinkle serum when you use it twice a day, in the morning and before going to sleep.

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24h Wear and Comfort SPF 15 vs. L’Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup

 
   

One of the most popular foundation of Lancôme is Teint Idole Ultra 24h wear, a long wearing and comfortable product. This foundation gives your skin a velvety smoothness and a full coverage also. It covers all imperfections, acne scars, red spots or big pores. All types of skin benefit of this foundation: dry, sensitive, oily or combination skin.

True Match Super Blendable Makeup by L’Oreal Paris comes in amazingly numbers of shades and it rather a lighter foundation. It’s still able though to cover red and dark spots, blemishes and gives your skin smoothness.

Lancôme’s Teint Idole Ultra 24h is a lightweight foundation, lasting for 24 hrs. and has no oil or perfume. It’s also non-comedogenic and doesn’t transfer. It’s a non-cracking foundation that ensures a flawless appearance.

Both of these foundation gives you sun protection and they are both easy to blend and buff.

L’Oreal Paris True Match is not heavy and creates a natural, radiant look on your face. It’s not irritating and a little goes a long way.

Some customers disliked L’Oreal’s True Match as it has no pump and has a thin, liquid like consistency. They also mention how this foundation is not really transfer resistant either. But, as this foundation contains vitamin A and C and grape fruit extract, you could say it makes up when it comes to nourishing the skin. It’s important to mention that this doesn’t contain oil, perfumes and keeps your pores unclogged.

It’s a sure thing L’Oreal’s foundation has its qualities (and flaws), but Lancôme’s product comes with a higher price for its higher qualities.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara, Carbon Black vs. Lancôme Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara

 
   

Whenever you want thicker, longer, darker eye lashes and don’t want to spend all your money, get yourself L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara, Carbon Black. This mascara gives evenly and smoothly volume to your lashes and leaves them soft, flake, smudge or clump free.

Lancôme has created Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume, a mascara that gives high-volume in a single stroke to your lashes. It’s a creamy, gliding formula that gives a rich, deep color to your lashes in just a single coat.

L’Oreal’s Voluminous Original Mascara has no fragrance and is washable. It’s easy to remove but you do need it to work it slowly, finishing each eye first before going to the other one. It dries quite quickly and you can apply a second coat. It gives you the darkest, deepest lashes and it’s perfect for the smoky eye look.

Lancôme’s Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara has an S-shaped applicator brush and doesn’t run not even in the allergy season. You can apply this to smooth appearance of wrinkles, dark circles and give radiance to your look. This stands even during water sports and is great when it comes to separating and bulking the lashes.

The mascara of L’Oreal tends to get clumpy after 6 weeks of use and some customers noticed the flakes from Lancôme’s Hypnose.

There’s no point in talking prices for these two mascara, but it seems that Lancôme’s Hypnose is a far more resistant mascara and only needs one coat for best results.

L’Oreal Paris Collagen Moisture Filler Day/Night Cream vs. Lancôme Hydra Zen Neocalm Multi-Relief Anti-Stress Moisturizing Cream

For a good hydration, no matter the moment of the day, both brands are always creating new products.

L’Oreal Paris Collagen Moisture Filler is a cream to be used both day and night and contains collagen. This gives good hydration to your skin and smooths wrinkles just as well. This translates into younger looking skin and the natural Collagen fills in lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a nicer appearance.

Lancôme’s Hydra Zen Neocalm features a new technology that gives your skin immediate moisturizing and smoothness. It’s an oil-in-water texture that soaks into the skin and leaves your skin smooth, radiant and soft.

L’Oreal’s Collagen moisturizer seems to work better at night and has a thick texture. It leaves your skin less dry, a lot younger and doesn’t burn your eyes. It doesn’t leave a greasy feeling on your skin and doesn’t clog pores either. A little goes a long way and the moisturizer keeps away outbreaks.

In order to get best results with this moisturizer, it’s advisable to use complete collagen-infused skincare regimen.

Lancôme’s Hydra Zen Neocalm fights against environmental and emotional stress and has a soothing fragrance. It contains rose, lily-of-the-valley, orange, apple and white musk. It should be applied in the morning, on a cleansed skin.

Both moisturizers give good hydration to your skin and have some effect on wrinkles also. But, since Lancôme’s product has soothing effects and sophisticated technology, is higher priced than L’Oreal moisturizer.

L’Oreal Paris Advanced RevitaLift Face and Neck Day Cream vs. Lancôme  Rénergie Lift Multi-action Lifting and Firming Cream SPF 15

Kudos to L’Oreal Paris as it has tried to create a day cream that fights against wrinkles and aging symptoms. It gives you Advanced Revitalift Face and Neck Day Cream, a daily moisturizer that has anti-wrinkle and firming action. This contains Pro-Retinol A and Stimuplex, both reducing wrinkles, making your skin more firm and hydrated for 24 hours.

Lancôme’s Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Lifting and Firming cream is enriched with multitension technology and creates a firmer and denser skin. This gives a smooth, radiant appearance to your skin, not greasy. A little goes a long way and this doesn’t irritate the skin. It hydrates your skin for the whole day and protects even against bad UVB, thanks to its SPF15.

You should use L’Oreal’s Revitalift Face and Neck Day Cream twice a day as it is a great foundation for your makeup and its thick enough for a night moisturizing. It has a nice texture and fragrance and it’s not too greasy. It gives no outbreaks, but it seems its efficiency is questionable when it comes to lifting the wrinkles. But customers still think this is a great moisturizer for the money.

On the other side, customers noticed dramatic changes on their skin after just one use. The skin got softer, the pores got smaller, and the skin tone more even and the wrinkles got softened in time. Lancôme’s Rénergie Lift leaves no oil residue. The main complain comes from its price that is considered to be on the high side.
