My favorite thing about this product isBeautiful color
I bought 300M Rose Plumeti and 224M Beige Bachelorette. This polish goes on easily & smoothly. I used 2 coats with small touch-ups -- I like an opaque finish, so I always do 2 coats. In this case, one coat was a little streaky and 2 coats would have been necessary anyway. Brush is the right size for me. The colors are beautiful when dry, with a moderate sheen, and are true to those shown. Except the Rose Plumeti has a slight peach tone on me, but is not enough to be annoying.
What IS annoying is the size and shape of the bottle. It's 3/4 inch on each side (top to bottom) and 1-1/2" high. The base of the bottle isn't wide enough to safely hold the bottle without it tipping over. I made a "stabilizer" out of a sponge (1-1/2" thick). Cut a small hole in the middle to hold the bottle, then put the sponge in a solid little box or something else that'll hold the sponge securely. Just an idea -- works for me. ^..^

My favorite thing about this product isMakes my face feel clean and hydrated
This is my second bottle of Tonique Radiance, plus the gift-with-purchase smaller sizes. The scent is very light but pleasant. Doesn't dry my skin, is a good "finish" after washing and leaves my face feeling terrific. After my face cleansing routine at night of rinse-wash-rinse, I use the toner on cotton pads. No matter how much I carefully wash my face, the toner always finds more. For no other reason than that, it's worth using. But I get a lot more out of it as I stated above. I've tried several toners over the years and wondered what they were supposed to do -- just another cosmetic "must have" that I didn't need. This is now a "must have" for me. I recommend it.

My favorite thing about this product isit is effective, feels good on my skin & is long-lasting.
Genifique Eye is one of the best, if not the best, eye creams I've ever used. I don't usually pay this much for eye creams, but in this case it's been worth it. The texture is very moist (thin) & a little goes a long way. People always say that, but it's really true with Genifique. It keeps the eye area feeling smooth all day. I'm 65 with kind of saggy skin on the area above the eye. Much of that goes away shortly after applying the cream. It has a light, pleasant scent (I'm a scent person). I'll be saving my nickels and dimes to buy more when this runs out. ^..^ I definitely recommend it, especially for those in the senior set like me.

what is the best product to use for wrinkles around the eyes (crow's feet) and bags under the eyes?

I've used several Lancome eye creams for the same reasons you mention = Absolue and Renergie. Both of these eye creams are top notch for crow's feet and those cranky bags under the eyes. I'm using Genifique now even though it is more expensive than I usually pay. But it has been worth it. But as I mentioned, all these creams are excellent.

When do you apply Renergie Lift Multi-Action?

I received a sample in a gift bag and I would like to know if you use this product in place of a moisterizer or apply before/after the moisterizer.
Renergie Lift Multi-Action is a moisturizer. I apply it over Visionnaire, which has evened my skin tone and reduced dark spots. I use both twice a day and have had very good results. The Multi-Action moisturizer makes my skin feel soft, smooth and moisturized all day. Using Visionnaire with the moisturizer is a great combination for me.
