My favorite thing about this product isColor
Purchased Rouge Resille (313-deep rose berry) and it looks beautiful against dark skin. However, it doesn't last long. I've used product by itself, over pencil, with a primer and it fades quickly. Only thing I haven't tried is a shellac over the lipstick. But I love the color and it moisturizers well so I'll continue to use since I'm glossed-out and prefer lipstick.

Used 453 from the new fall color collection for a pedicure. Beautiful, rich color; chipped after 5 days (which I've never experienced with a pedicure) but did not use Lancome top coat.

Is this meant for cool or warm undertones?

I am not sure if this is meant for cool undertones only, or warm as well. Appreciate any input. Thank you

What is the best solution for oily skin?

Mahua,

Since you don't specify exactly what you're looking for or what problems you'd like to address, here are suggestions for oily skin:

Serums:
--Visionnaire
--Genefique

Moisturizers:
--Bienfait Aqua Vital Lotion
--Bienfait Multi Vital Lotion SPF 30
--Renergie Oil Free Lotion

Serums absorb quickly so they work well with all skin types and help smooth lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and can be applied both under and over moisturizer (I prefer under). Visionnaire helps with pores and uneven skin tone and I find makeup performs better. I use both Visionnaire and Genefique simultaneously.

Renergie and Bienfait Aqua are both oil-free but Renergie focuses on anti-aging/firming. Benfait Multi contains SPF. All absorb well and leave your skin prepared for makeup application.

Experiment and see which products work best for you.

what is better for wrinkles and pores High Resolution or Renergie Lift?

Valr,

For the most part both but I find that firming products, like Rénergie, tend to dry my skin so pores may look smaller but High Resolution works better for me on wrinkles. I suggest sampling both and seeing which works best. Now, even though I find firming products drying, Absolue is a firming moisturizer that hydrates very well.

If you like serums, Visionnaire will take care of pores and smooth skin, so you can just use an anti-wrinkle moisturizer on top.

which one is better for oily skin, HIGH RÉSOLUTION REFILL-3X or RÉNERGIE LIFT MULTI-ACTION?

MaddyS,

You can most likely use both for oily skin but I find that firming products tend to dry skin more so if you have very oily skin, the Rénergie Lift may better suit your needs. If you like oil-free moisturizers, consider Rénergie Oil-Free Lotion, Bienfait Aqua Vital Cream and Bienfait Aqua Vital Lotion. Also, using Visionnaire before moisturizer tends to control oil.

should this product be stored in the fridge?

recently I've read a lot of posts on storing beauty products in the fridge. Still not sure whether it's truth or myth.
siswee,

Depends on the product -- I've used Visionnaire unrefrigerated with no problem. Refrigeration prolongs the life for most products but depending on use, it's not necessary. Preservative-free products will last longer refrigerated but if they're consumed within a short time of opening (say 60-120 days), refrigeration is not necessary -- check the expiration dates and product labels for info.

It also depends on the temperature of the room where the cosmetics are stored -- make sure it's cool and dry. As a rule, you shouldn't store cosmetics or medicines in the bathroom because of the fluctuation in temperature and humidity. However, if you feel better refrigerating your cosmetics, you're better off storing in a separate container where you can control the temperature specifically for your cosmetics.

What skin type is this best for?

Does it suitable for Asian-Oily skin type?
Lansche,

I find this suitable for all skin types -- it evens out and smooths skin and moisturizer/foundation/powder perform better. You can also use in conjunction with Génifique -- I apply Génifique over Visionnaire before moisturizer and find it best to let each product absorb before applying the next product.
