Possibly the worst foundation I've ever used, I have an oily t-zone so I'd expect my foundation to come off a little bit throughout the day, however if I touched anywhere on my face the foundation would come straight off, even with a foundation prolonging primer and a good amount of powder to set. Even without touching my face I have to reapply the foundation approximately every 2 hours. The only upside to this product is the packaging, I love that you get a correcting concealer with it, although the concealer isn't great either. Also very pricey, as much as I love everything else from LancĂ´me, really quite disappointed with this product.
I love this skincare foundation and concealer duo with a great passion.
Application (foundation): lightweight, easy to blend, easy to layer.
Finish (foundation): satiny, natural glow, can easily transform into matte with some powder, flawless, medium-full coverage, fantastic colour match
Application (concealer): creamy, easy to blend with fingers, easy to layer
Finish (concealer): medium-full, looks invisible underneath foundation
Been using for a week now and my pores have been noticeably refined. Acne scars are healing quicker than usual and dryness around nose and mouth has disappeared. General tone looks evened out.
$65AUD for high-end concealer AND foundation AND effective skincare? HG. Massive HG,
Fantastic product - My perfect winter foundation! I recently purchased this foundation and have been putting it to the test - have worn it through strenuous exercise (part of my job includes lots of running up and down stairs, as well as standing under extreme lighting for hours every day (in surgical theatre!).
Has withstood slipping and sliding on my combination/oily skin (though I use it with SKII Facial Treatment Essence as a toner underneath and a VERY light dusting of Laura Mercier's silk finishing powder) and though it gives a "dewy" finish by the end of the day, it is by no means oily - just perfectly glowy foundation! It's a medium coverage, which means that you look "naturally radiant" with no flaws peeking through from my previous acne pigmentation.
The concealer is quite creamy, though you only need a light layer to give you a perfect finish - best applied with fingers. It does what it claims and hides pores. I usually have horrendous pores and this foundation hides them without the need for a primer underneath!
Absolutely love this foundation - will be wearing this through winter! Did not need to retouch or repowder at all. Love the fact that it will be "treating" my skin at the same time as it is covering up imperfections too. Highly recommended! My first "holy grail" liquid foundation - and the price in Australia isn't too bad either - $65 for the foundation and concealer together. Very impressed.
I'm somewhat fussy with my foundation, and this one met all my expectations. Great medium coverage, not too powdery or cakey, doesn't smell or irritate my eyes. My eyes also hate concealer usually, as it dries out the skin underneath them, but this one I can actually use. Would recommend.
Loved it at first, but it got shinier during the day. I actually felt like my skin was improving after using this, making it a combination of skin care and foundation. Concealer is too thick, but alright when warmed up between fingers. It is different, but good to try at least once.
I bought a bottle of this, that means I do appreciate it, and I especially like that it comes with a perfect matching built in concealer (it lays in a pot on the lid, like La Prairie's). It keeps it promise in moisturizing your skin and making it supple and comfortable all through the day.
The problem is, It makes my skin look kind of sticky and oily, especially in the forehead. I need to blot it with powder, which is something I hate (makes me look too made up).
I'd recommend it to people who don't have serious T-zone problems (my T-zone isn't very oily, to be honest, but it did react like that to this foundation).
Scent is almost non-existent, if you wonder.
As for the concealer, it's just superb.
I bought this 2 days ago, and for me and my combination skin it's terrible, because it sinks into my pores and make the appear way larger (it's like zooming my pores) sets into lines around my nose and under my eyes, it also makes my skin seam thicker and kinda sticky...strange because quite light in consistency. It covers well(blemishes, dark under eye circles), foundation and concealer too, it may work for somebody with no pore problem maybe with normal-dry skin. Tried with YSL Matt Touch primer, and Too Faced primed and poreless (these two make my pores invisible no matter the foundation I use), set it with powder...still my pores looked huge. Disappointed, I won't be buying this ever again, and it's not exactly cheap
Wow guys thats the real deal:-)I've bought this product yesterday and I'm wearing it now.
The corrector gives you an AMAZING cover, all my redness and small spots are gone. The foundation itself is very silky and light,I used a brush to apply its very easy to do.
Beautifully covers all arreas,not cakey and doesn't look like you wearing foundation.
My skin is normal/dry despite this it made my skin look extremly oily, very shiny which was a bit disturbing. You need to apply loads of powder on the top,otherwise you gonna look like you just jumped out from the shower and forgotten drying your face.
Overall I'm more than happy with this product this is my new HG and I highly recommend for anyone.
I'm not sure it's working for people with oily skin,but give it a try.
The price is fine especially because you get 2 products for the proce:-)
I'm honored writing the first review for this foundation. Lancome Teint Visionnaire Foundation & Concealer Duo SPF20 is a new Lancome foundation incorporating the success of the Visionnaire Serum into a high-tech foundation & concealer duo, combining skincare & makeup. It comes in a beautiful user-friendly glass pump bottle with a matching concealer housed in the mirrored lid.
Lancome extended the shade range to 18 shades from fair to dark. Being a pale neutral NW/NC10 I picked up two generous samples of the lightest (Euro) shade #005 Beige Ivoire. I applied a few dots all over my face, blending out with my fingers. The texture is surprisingly lightweight; not too thick and not too thin. Quite creamy and easy to blend but be warned it dries fast. There's no scent which I'm grateful for since my sensitive skin can't tolerate fragranced makeup.
The coverage is really good: I'd say medium coverage but you can build up to nearly full coverage. The foundation did a great job evening out my ruddy Rosacean cheeks. I did use a tiny amount of the concealer under my eyes and onto some of the stubborn red spots. The concealer is quite thick and a tad less creamy but it definately is a great concealer, offering full coverage. The only negative is the concealer shade not being lighter than the foundation; it's the same shade as the foundation and maybe even slightly darker but this might also be just my personal perception (I'm not very skilled in using and applying concealer;-).
Once I was done my face looked awesome: even-toned, radiant and satiny yet completely natural. My (dry) skin felt hydrated, smooth and soft like velvet. This foundation gives a satin yet non-greasy finish; it would be great for dry skins. I'd imagine combo to oilier skins would have to blot during the day. Also this foundation doesn't sink in lines & wrinkles so mature skins would love it too.
Despite it nog being marketed as being a long-lasting foundation it wears well throughout the day, looking as fresh after 12+ hours of wear even without setting with powder (which I usually do but not when trying a new foundation). At the end of the day my skin still felt supple and smooth. I didn't experience any irritation, dryness or breakouts.
Retail price is €56 for 30ml which is expensive of course but given the fact you're getting a great foundation and a concealer as well not too bad.
Now for the really bad news: this lightest shade is too dark for me. Although it goes on much lighter than it appears, this shade is at least about a full shade too dark. I already did expect it to be since I've tried lots of Lancome foundations in the past and never found a matching Euro shade; the only shade coming close is US shade #Ivoire 1 N and #005 Beige Ivoire definately is much darker. IMO More like NW/NC15-17. Very unfortunate because I have nothing bad to say about this awesome foundation and I for sure would have purchased a bottle otherwise. I hope Lancome USA will offer #Ivoire 1 N in Teint Visionnaire so we very fair skinned can also use this gorgeous foundation... That's why I said "yes" to the question if I would buy this foundation again.
Bottom line: I highly recommend trying out Teint Visionnaire! Especially if you have dry, sensitive and or mature skin.
