Liquid -Laura Mercier - Oil Free Supreme Foundation

The initial finish is spectacular. However, this foundation has NO lasting power at all! I have combination skin and within a couple hours this was terribly blotchy and uneven. It looked horrible!
This foundation has HOLY GRAIL status for me. I have oily skin and nothing has ever looked so natural, covered everything, stayed on forever in a lightweight formulation. I have tried Chanel, Armani, you name it and nothing comes close to this. Revlon, pleaese don't every discontinue this product!
This is the greasiest foundation which sinks into pores within an hour. If you have combination or oily skin stay away from this. It does not look natural and after a few hours you'll look like an oil slick. There are way better concealers/foundation products out there.
This is an excellent foundation. I have dark spots on my face from pregnancy and this does a great job of covering them up. The finish is absolutely beautiful especially with a light dusting of loose powder on top. I have combination skin and this did not make me oily at all. I am 33 yrs old so this is definately a great foundation for everyone-not just women with mature skins as advertised. Try it and you will love it.

This is the best leave-in I have ever used. My hair is very fine, frizzy and wavy. I blow dry it straight every single day. This leaves my hair absolutely gorgeous. It feels very light and highly moisturized. Worth every penny.
I hesitated buying this after reading some of the reviews. My skin is somewhat oily, blemish-prone and I like really good coverage. I also live in a hot and humid southern climate so my makeup has to last. I went ahead and ordered it on Sephora. This is the BEST stuff. Worth every penny I swear! I got incredible coverage with a semi-matte finish. My skin looked gorgeous. It doesn't even look like you're wearing makeup...it's that perfect. Be sure to apply with a sponge.

I was really looking forward to their new and improved 14 hour long wear foundation. I eagerly purchased it online (lancome.com). What a dissapointment! The coverage was so-so and it definately did not last 14 hours. Not even close. My skin is less than perfect and it did not give the full/matte coverage it claims. It did not stand up to the coastal and humid NC weather. I will continue to stick with Estee Lauder Double Matte.
This is awful. It gave me the greasiest skin ever after just a couple of hours. TERRIBLE!!!!!

I love this. I have wavy, frizzy hair and live in a humid coastal climate. This makes your hair beautiful!! Mine is color treated and this gives tons of shine, is weightless and straightens. I have not found any other high end product that does as great of a job. Plus I love the scent.

A terrible product for oily or combo skin. Within a few short hours I was streaky, oily and very shiny. My skin looked awful!
I was highly disappointed with this. The coverage was too light and the oilies showed up shortly after application even though I applied their loose powder on top. By the end of the day there were "streaks" on my face and it looked awful. There are much better foundations out there!

I have oily skin and found this foundation to be fabulous. I also use a mattifying lotion prior to application which helps with oil control. The finish is so beautiful. It has great coverage yetfeels light. Very much worth the money for me.
I have never had skin problems (breakouts, acne, etc.) until I put this foundation on my face. It was HORRIBLE! My skin broke out so bad I was embarrassed to leave my house. Not to mention the coverage is certainly not full.
This is the best foundation for my skin. I have combo skin (normal-oily) and live in a hot and humid climate. I also have blemishes and uneven skin tone. This covers beautifully, has great staying power and makes my skin literally flawless. The trick is to apply correctly (with brush) otherwise the coverage will be too heavy.

This is amazing on my fine, limp hair. It's never had so much volume and bounce. I will buy again amd again!
