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.
I think this is as HG for me as it's going to get. I really liked this in the summer and now in winter, I find I reach for it most mornings. This product is best for skin that doesn't have many problems. It's lightweight, but offers decent coverage for fairly normal skin. My skin is oily on the T- zone, but a light dusting with powder and I'm good to go. This is very lightweight and I find I love that about this foundation. Wish it was cheaper, but I like it so much I'll definitely repurchase.
I really love this product for summer foundation when it's hot outside. It's not the best for winter, and here's why. This product is quite thin and watery, but it offers full medium matte coverage. I know those two things sound like opposites, but somehow Lancome makes it work. I've never had a foundation formula like this before. It doesn't feel heavy. It doesn't feel like it's going to slide off your face in the heat/humidity/sweat. I live in the hot south and this does the trick.
But the things that make it work in summer, are things I don't really need in winter. In cold weather I prefer something more emollient and luxurious. Still when the weather is right, this stuff can't be beat.
Price is high. Too high I think. But the fact that you don't need as much product (due to it's thinness) means that it lasts longer than most.
The easy-to-use packaging is great too. 5 stars.
Discovered this product very recently. I'm middle aged, oily, dark hair and green eyes. Always seeking a decent foundation that has spf 15 or higher and some staying power. This is pretty darn good on both counts. It's winter, so I am wearing Bisque OW. If I go on a winter holiday I'll buy another shade. I don't mind mixing my shades as my skin changes colour. Pretty happy with the price, amount and availability. Will stick with this one for a while. Apply by pouring an amount on the back of your hand and use a makeup brush.
