This foundation looks great. It has a lightweight medium blurable coverage. It gives a nautral glow. The good thing was it did not cling to dry patches or settle into dehyrated fine lines aslo did not serperate and pool around the nose. The cons were it doesn't control oil and not longwearing last about 3-4 hours max even with a good powder. My t-zone was still oily but the rest of my normal/dry skin was ok it did not cause that area to become dry or cakey but it was tiny bit oil on the surface. No shades match Ivory was too pink, buff oxidize pink/ashy and bisque too dark still hint of pink/orange. Shades are not yellow olive enough for my light skintone. I'am in Mac shade nc20. This formula is still better than teint idole ultra 24h which was heavy sticky dry cakey patchy and clings and settles......
Love it! I only need about 2 very small pumps to do my whole face. I really like that for me it just evens out my skin tone and makes me look natural. It blends into my skin seamlessly. I'm a Ivoire 2 (c) NW20,N1,NARS Monte Blanc so I'm pretty fair. But this and the NARS I find blend the best for me. I was amazed at how little i needed to cover the redness which is my main issue. It also doesn't make my skin look flat it just looks better than normal. It's so light on my skin it feels like I'm wearing nothing which, I love and for me it lasted all day. What was nice because I forgot to use primer on some days, so the fact that it lasted till I took it off was great!
I apply this with my fingers it blends in nicely. If I need it I'll use an RT buffing brush over it just to make sure everything is blended. It doesn't dry super fast so you have plenty of time to blend which, I really like. It is about light to medium coverage in my opinion but I'm just looking to even out my skin. I don't need a lot of coverage so i do not build it up. It does hide normal imperfections without any problems for me. I don't need concealer but when I do I use MUD or Tartes Creasless concealer both work great with it.
This is a really nice foundation that I have been wanting to try for quite awhile. It is my favorite one in my rotation at the moment and could see myself using this in the long term. It blends so well. The packaging is really nice and the coverage is just what I'm looking for. I only get a hormonal spot now and then so this does what i need which is even my skin tone. It's great because it's one of those foundations that just looks great on. I'm combo skinned and I am a mix of oily and dry and have had no issues wearing this base.I always moisturize and prime so maybe that helps but this is a good one because it gives your skin some life without being OTT. I love the shade range as well I just wish it came in a bigger bottle. Definitely Recommended!
This used to be my absolute favourite product when I had dry skin. Would definitely recommend to anyone with dry or normal skin, it's beautifully radiant and light on the skin. Gives a flawless look I loved it. No longer using it due to getting a bit oilier skin which tends to make this makeup less durable. Still looks gorgeous though!
This is great but the renergie lift and firm is up a notch!
I do enjoy this foundation and it has a great color range. The only problem is that it's not a long wearing foundation. The back of the bottle says to reapply every two hours. This is almost like a bb cream foundation hybrid.
I have incredibly sensitive skin, I'm allergic to lavender, cucumber, and a lot of foundations. I've tried other high end brands, but I have the same result; rashes, burning skin, then I came across Lancome, I decided to give it a go, and wow am I glad I did! It gives me great coverage without feeling thick and doesn't go cakey. After trying this, I don't think I'll try any others! Such a lovely feeling product.
I have been searching for a good foundation for my combination skin that has been quite acne prone in the last few months. I checked the ingredients before requesting a sample and they seemed ok.
I was matched to the shade 035, which wasn't a perfect colour match but managed to look good on me. The foundation applied very smoothly and provided a lovely lightweight yet medium coverage. It was a bit dewy (probably because I used it on top of my very light textured sunscreen) but still very flattering, especially when set with MUFE invisible setting powder.
A couple of hours later I was an oil slick. Now, I now my skin is combination but still. I was not expecting to look like I could fry an egg on my face. Sorry for the graphic description. So this foundation proved to be useless, at least when paired with sunscreen.
I need to make a point before continuing. My chin has been breaking out for the last few months. I have been using benzoyl peroxide and the day before I tried this foundation I actually admired my face in the mirror and I thought 'my breakouts are so much better. They are healing nicely, scars and less noticeable...' My chin is looking the best it has in months'.
To my dismay, after removing my make up I noticed my chin was red and irritated. Next morning I had two huge pimples, very inflamed, angry looking and huge white heads. It is quite frustrating and shocking to find out that using the wrong product only once can cause so much damage. Now, I know my skin has been reactive anyway but it was clearing! And this foundation, even when used only once, set me back a few weeks of progress made!
To sum up I would not recommend this to anyone. However, if you have tough skin and you never breakout and you have dry skin, then this might work for you. I know this works for a lot of people, but with that amount of alcohol (you can smell it) I wonder how bad it is actually going to effect your skin in the long term.
The main reason I would not use this foundation again is because it did not match my skin tone well. I'm very pale and went with the lightest shade, but once I put it on and it dried it got an orangey tinge. Also I found this foundation did not help much with oil control, my face often got oily quickly after wearing this!
Firstly the pros this foundation has a spongy light almost whipped feel and has amazing packaging. Now for the cons. Firstly the foundation oxidised three shades darker than what it came out the bottle as. From ivory to a beige both on my face and hand. Secondly it applied streaky if you don't use a brush you can't use your hands. Then this foundation broke me out, I never break out but this gave me the white under the skin breakouts. It also dried out my face to the point skin went red and cracked. Sorry if this grosses out but anyone with sensitive skin this was such an irritant! Don't do it to you skin. Lastly I felt it sat on my face even though it was light it went a bit streaky it was hard to blend even with the primer. Also it hardly lasted maybe 3-4 hour tops. My revlon colourstay does 100% better for half the price.
Fantastic foundation, medium coverage that looks like you aren't wearing anything! I wear this with just a little powder brushed over my t-zone and it looks great all day. Perfect during the summer but it may be drying during the winter. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the overly perfumed smell.
