Attention::: HG HG HG!!!!! Definitely found the holy grail after 20 years of searching and trying to find the right foundation. I applied the foundation using an essential foundation brush bytechniques the consistency is thick but spreads very easily. Working quickly is necessary though as it dries quickly the foundation covers everything even scars I have never been able to fully conceal were invisible. My skin looks absolutely flawless there is no scent. The foundation lasts all day through a very demanding physical labor intense workday. A good remover will be necessary because it is very thick and full coverage however dont let this scare you away because it does not settle or feel it appear mask like. To make an even more flawless matte finish I dust dual wear lancome powder over top. I will estimately be purchasing this again. As for the packaging. ..also awesome. it comes in a glass pump bottle allowing for easy dispensing. Very satisfied and excited to try more of this iconic luxury brand.
fave foundation and yes ive tried them all literally. ivoire 100 N is pale enough for hard to match ppp. stays on.. looks dewy not oily... fresh...full coverage, light flexible, non matte.. non cakey.... I am 40.. I look younger with it... works undereyes a major plus. little goes long way. ease of application. doesn't 'dry' on contact... blends super smoothly. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Must agree with the first review - this foundation is HOLY GRAIL status. Rarely do I get excited about a foundation and I've been pretty loyal to my Nars sheer glow using UD skin in the summer. However, I was walking along State Street, minding my business when I passed Sephora's new Color IQ display and figured what the heck, I'll give it a shot.
I was matched to both Nars Sheer Glow in Trinidad and Lancome 24 Tiente Idol in 510 suede. (applied with my MAC stipple brush) Tried the Nars, nice. what I expected. A day later, tried the Lancome - WOW!! Perfection in a bottle. Applied Lancome primer or Smashbox BB cream underneath and the results were simply amazing. Perfectly natural, lasted about all day. Beautiful skin. I was in awe and quite frankly kept looking at my face in the mirror throughout the day. Realized that it was HG when I looked in the car mirror in daylight/sunshine and my face looked magnifiquÃ¨.
I will PURCHASE AGAIN! I just hope that in March when I'm a shade or 2 lighter I will find a shade match.
After years of searching for my holy grail foundation I have finally found it and i have tried them all from la prarie skin caviar, bobby brown, graftobian, cinema secrets, clarins and ELDW to name just a few. This foundation is amazing it stays on all day does not dry my skin out looks great even after a 14 hour shift. The colour match is perfect 02 lys rose never before have I found a more perfect shade for my fair skin.
