Ask Our Experts: Annmarie Shares Her Top Lancome Beauty Essentials

Here at McElhinneys, we are proud to have a team of experts on hand across our departments to help our customers find the right fit for them for every occasion.

From sharing advice on everyday beauty routine essentials to helping brides and grooms get ready for their big day with our Bridal Rooms and Suit Hire services, we are always happy to help, for all the big and small moments in life.

In this new series, we will be sharing some of the expert knowledge that plays a big role in the 5 star service McElhinneys is known for across Ireland.

This week we are sharing some insights from our Lancôme Beauty expert Annmarie, as she highlights her five favourite products from one of our most-loved beauty brands.

Advanced Genifique Serum

 Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum

Annmarie says: "Having worked for Lancome for over 35 years, this is one product I love."

"Advanced Genifique Serum leaves my skin looking plumped and glowing. I only need one drop applied prior to my moisturiser."

"The combination of prebiotics and probiotics along with yeast and bifidus work continuously to strengthen my skin's barrier. I use this product every single day."

Absolue Regenerating Cream

 Absolue Regenerating Cream

Annemarie says: "I never knew what dry skin truly felt like until I hit menopause."

"Absolue Regenerating Cream nourishes my skin and replaces lost lipids and makes it feel comfortable again."

"It contains rose extract which leaves my skin looking smooth and it encourages the cells on the surface of my skin to renew so I get amazing anti-ageing benefits. I love it. It's my old reliable!"

Teint Idole Ultra Wear

 Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation

Annmarie says: "Teint Idole Ultra Wear is my go-to foundation. The technology in this foundation has just been updated for the fifth time and it just keeps getting better."

"The new formula brightens my skin and it doesn't sit in my fine lines, which is one of the reasons why I love it."

"I barely feel anything on my skin when I wear it and an extra bonus is that it contains SPF 35 which is rare in foundations. It is buildable for day to night and lasts all day."

Idole Intense Fragrance

Idole L'Intense Eau De Parfum


Annmarie says: "Idole Intense is my absolute favourite Lancome scent. I love fragrance that contains the note Jasmine."

"This Eau de Parfum has a trio of Jasmine notes - which I adore - along with rose accords which brings a lovely femininity to the fragrance."

"It lasts all day long and into the night although I can't resist to respray myself throughout the day. Idole intense is my signature scent."

Idole Mascara

Annmarie reveals her Holy Grail beauty product is mascara, as she says: "All my life I have used Lancôme mascara. The brand is renowned for its Hypnose Mascara, which is the number one selling mascara in the world."

"I love all of the mascaras but it depends what kind of mood I'm in as to which one I'll pick on a daily basis, sometimes I'll pick two and layer one over the other for effect. You should try it some time."

"If I had to pick one, it would be the Idole Mascara, it gives my lashes a great lift and adds volume. It's infused with white tea extract which treats my lashes and allows for easy removal compared to other mascaras. I cannot be without my Lancome mascara."
