Overall, this is a great liquid foundation for my skin in spring/summer when my face tends to be a bit more oily. It has a nice light texture so it's easy to apply and blend. It offers light-medium coverage, and a little seems to go a long way for me.
I usually wear a Mac NW20, so I was surprised to find I'm a Bisque 0W in this foundation. However, the match is nice, and Lancome colors tend to be inconsistent anyway. I recommend getting 1-2 samples or a color match with a good SA at a counter.
I wish this came in a pump dispenser instead of a squeeze tube. The tube tends to spit out a lot more product than I need, and for the price, I would have expected this to have a more controlled dispenser.
This claims to be mattifying, however I don't find this. I don't really get a lot of shine while wearing it, but it's not a matte finish, so powder on top is advisable if you're oily. This wears well for a long day -- it looks nice for 8 or 10 hours on me.
This product break me out like crazy! Also it made my face oily after 2 hours..I know they claim that it is suppose to be mattifying, NO it doesn't at least not for me.
Also it doesn't have any coverage at all. I had to use my mac concealer to cover my acne.
I would Not recommend this for someone who has acne prone skin.
Will not buy it again..
Medium coverage, looks super natural, and goes on very easily and smoothly. Nothing special about the finish and it would accentuate any dry patches. Lasts quite long - about 8 hours without a primer I would say.
I was pretty dissapointed at first with this product in that it's marketed for 'oily' skin types. It does NOT mattify and still looks dewy on the skin. I have used other Ivory2C Lancome foundations before, but this one is considerbly darker than the others. If the colour matched me more I might like it, but its hard for me to imagine. It's a light coverage perfect for summer. That being said, I do love how easy to blend this foundation and the feel of it on your skin. It would look great for a normal skinned person whos skin tone is easily matched.
Great product! I bought it in buff 2W, which is very light but fine for me. it is a light formule with light/medium coverage and you do not feel it on your skin at all. I find it lasts fine too. there's not a lot of product in one tube and it's not very cheap but way better than my revlon colourstay (which made me break out every once in a while and was thicker and less natural).
I wouldn't buy this product again because they do not have my skin tone shade. I had my skin color match by a Lancome artist. She told me that Buff 4C is my color tone, which that's for cool tone, and I'm a warm tone. I told her that i will look pink but she didn't believe me. So after she got the Buff 4C on my whole face, I looked like I got sunburn. So she went with the next lightest warm tone color which was Buff 2W which was too light. So there's no tone in between those two.
The foundation gives me a natural look which i really liked but after I worn it on for 4-5 hours, my oil came through. So it's not the best for oily skin. If they ever do come out with a BUFF 4W, then I will consider to buy it.
The best foundation I have ever used. I work as a Regional Manager in the cosmetics field, so I have tried it ALL. This foundation gives the best coverage and stays all day long. I always get compliments on my complexion when wearing Fresh Wear. Definitely try it!
I really like this. I went to Sephora for a color match and the SA applied it with a brush. It totally gets rid of my reddish spots and makes my skin look flawless. I will def buy this again.
I really like this the most of the liquid foundations I've tried so far. I've only been a liquid foundation user for a couple of years, now. This is lightweight, so it doesn't feel caked on and heavy. It's not greasy (good news for my oily skin), hasn't caused any breakouts (good news for my acne prone skin), and has decent coverage on its own (good news for my acne prone and scarred skin). It dries to a soft, powdery finish, so it may not be best for dry skin. I may try a few more foundations down the road (as I've said, I've only been interested in them for a couple of years, now), but I could easily return to this. I like the tube style packaging, but I do wish the tip were more of a pointed style than a flat one. The formula is very thin and makes for a bit of a mess at the tip of the container as is. It could easily (and more cleanly) be dispensed from a pointed tip!
Even tho I did not purchase this... I was at the lancome booth and wanted a color match..I have never use lancome (laura mericer fan). The makeup artist recommend me this. I'm oily and acne skin.. It covers really well..it was applied with primer as well..when she was done. My face looked CAKEY..I mean reallly CAKEY. This lady had 17 years w lancome too.. I'm sorry I don't think ill buy it.
