Foundations -Lancome - Le Teint Particulier Custom Made Makeup

foto

My first love with Lancome foundations began over 30 years ago with Maqui-Libre. When that was discontinued, I used Miracle. More recently, Regenerie. I prefer an oil-free, fragrance-free formulas for my sensitive skin. While Regenerie has been a good foundation, it contains a tad more Vitamin E than my face can handle at times. Both Regenerie and Miracle are sheer coverage with Regenerie being a bit more buildable to medium. Wanting a more full coverage, I tried Idol but found it very drying and cakes. Enter Le Teint Particuliar. I decided to give it a try. Going into this I knew it is Beyond Expensive! and comes in plastic packaging offering a smaller amount of foundation than the glass bottled Regenerie and Miracle liquid foundations. For now, I'll share my experience and first impression. I arrived for my appointment, as instructed, with a clean face, not applying any serums or moisturizer. To start, the Nordstrom Lancome associate recleansed my face with Micellar. Next, an iPad app is used to input my name, skin type (oily, normal, dry are the options), and coverage preference (sheer, medium, or full). I have combination sensitive skin, so I opted for normal with full coverage. We discuss which three areas of my skin will be used to read my color. I had thought about this in advance and was prepared to discuss my thoughts with the associate, but first I wanted to hear her idea. We were clearly on the same page! Center of forehead, lower right cheek area just in front of the ear and slightly above jawline, and an area on the left side of my lower neck at the color bone. A handheld device is placed in those areas to communicate to the app. The read came through quickly, my fair skin read slightly warm, very close to neutral. Pretty much what I expected. A plastic bottle is put into the machine and a small amount of the custom formulation is processed. After only a few minutes, the custom foundation is ready to be tested. The first swipe on my cheek does not look anything like my skin.. but after she blends it in using Lancomes new foundation brush, its spot on. The foundation is applied to half my face and looks incredible. It feels lightweight, appears sheer, and yet the coverage is great. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being full coverage, the foundation for me is an 8. I take the mirror and go outside to see my skin in natural light. Really this is truly amazing. It is my own skin tone in a bottle. I agree to purchase and the associate then reinserts the bottle into the machine to fill my order. A personalized label identifying my custom color blend number is created for future use. I'm told a shade lighter or darker can easily be made if desired. The associate completed my entire face. The formula blends beautifully, it feels lightweight, looks sheer and natural yet offers me more coverage which I absolutely love! My normal, full coverage formulation feels wonderful, not greasy, not drying, did not settle into lines, did not cake, and after seven hours looked just as lovely as when it was first applied. This is a nice blendable foundation that felt really good on my skin. I am very pleased with how flawless and natural my complexion is using this foundation. My blend really melts beautifully into my skin without leaving any sign of demarkation and does a wonderful job of evening out my skin tone. The foundation nicely covers my small imperfections and slight redness. So, on Day 1, I am a fan of the custom blend. I am NOT a fan of the price nor the packaging but thanks to the flawless finish, I'm not complaining. What remains to be learned is how I will be able to work with the foundation on my own; how long the 22ml (.7oz) will last, and if the pump will work to the last drop. BTW: The associate used about 2 pumps total. I'll update with those answers in about 6 weeks (or sooner if there is an issue...). Right now, I'm looking forward to doing my makeup today!



Eye Shadow -Lancome - Color Design - The New Black

Looks can be deceiving and this shadow is no exception. It looks so intense in the pan but it has very poor pigmentation. The tiny silver glitter shows up on a light smokey almost heather grey base when applied. I was hoping it was a deep black base. There are far better dark shadow bases with glitter that are much more intense on the eyelid. Just didn't cut it for me...

The best waterproof mascara I have ever used. Lasts thru gym, beach pool etc. a little harder to remove , just be gentle. I use Cover Girl lash blast under this (WP) then comb this over.

Mascara -Lancome - Grandiose

I've found most of my experience in using the mascara good - it gives a good coating and adds both volume and some length. However, as I removed the wand from the well recently I heard some sort of 'clump' and it seems like the entire depository of colour has attached itself to the brush, so it is no longer a brush but has the whole well of mascara around it. So while I was able to coat my lashes well previously, I now have to be careful not to smudge/clump my cheek or eyelids with extraneous product while I am trying to lightly coat my lashes.

Would never purchase again, I'm really disappointed in the product considering its expense.

I will go back to using Doll Eyes.

TRANSFER TRANSFER TRANSFER. This is doing exactly what Charlotte Tilbury's did for me...embarrassing TRANSFER. Really liked everything about it, even the pre-sale hype.
Happily this was a free trial size I played with.
