This foundation tops my MUFE HD. It goes on smooth, I have gotten several compliments. I used a flat angled brush to apply, no streaks, and great coverage. I have to say for me, it is a little bit more coverage than I want for everyday. So I am going to apply it with a damp sponge to give it a lighter look. But again, I believe this will become my HG!!! (Excuse the close up flash in the photo, not oily at all)
Good but not the best
For reference, I have combination skin and am MAC NC40
Application: Its a nice consistency liquid, not too runny not too thick. It has a smell, perfumey. Not so strong that when you wear it you can smell but but its nice that it doesn't have a bad smell like some foundations that can be chemically. Goes on nicely, esp with a primer. Really smooth. I used a stipling brush and it wasn't streaky like other liquids can be with that brush. My other foundation brushes used up too much product, so I'd stick with a stipling brush or fingers. Maybe a damp sponge also.
Coverage: I wouldn't say full. Maybe I expect too much from something that says 'full coverage'. I would say its medium buildable.
Finish: Not a matte finish. Almost but not matte enough. Nice and velvety. I set with powder and it went a little cakey. But if you wait a few mins before u put powder its fine.
Wear: Feels nice and light. I wouldn't say its 24hr wear coz I'm a bit shiny by lunch and I'm not mega oily. If your skin is a bit drier than it is oily I imagine it'll stay long without touch ups at all.
Overall: 4/5 for lightness as well as good coverage and longevity but not as promised. I must add 2 people have said my make up specifically looks nice when I've worn it and I haven't been doing anything different but using this foundation.
Note: I had the wrong colour for my skin though I was matched at a counter. I was given two samples to mix but they were both had pink undertones. The shade number rubbed off the bottle so I may have been matched with a cool colour but a Lancome staff member should be able to match at least one of the many shades.
This one broke my heart!!
What can I say? Perfect color match, perfect finish, long-wearing, lightweight on skin. Made my face break out worse than any other foundation I have ever tried!! I wore this for over 3 weeks, testing over different primers, no primers, different moisturizers. The finish and color were flawless but it was definitely the Lancome that was causing the breakouts. I took off 2 1/2 stars because of the breakouts and the price. If I wasn't still dealing with the aftermath of this foundation I would have given it a higher rating. I didn't go lower because I believe that for most people who can afford it and don't have sensitive skin, this would be a Holy Grail Foundation. I was given the best samples of this from a sales rep at Sephora. When we were discussing my skin, she strongly advised me to use the samples first before buying....thank goodness! I wore 500 and 510 interchangeably.
Holy Grail Foundation!
I've been completely obsessed with this foundation 😍!! It is like no other foundation that I've tried. It's so light-weight I barely remember that I have anything on my face. It leaves a flawless matte finish which I love being that I have oily/combo skin & it truly last all day long!! I don't need to set this foundation like others to keep it from staying on or transferring which is a huge pus! However it's pricey but a little does go a long way. I highly recommend this foundation!! I AM IN LOVE! 😍
Holy Grail Foundation!
This foundation is amazing! It has the most amazing coverage and very lightweight as well. I barely feel like I'm even wearing foundation when I wear this. Nice range of shades, only downside is the price, but totally worth giving a try. It keeps me oil free for at least 10 hrs, after that I do need to blot due to my oily skin. Other than that, one of the most amazing foundation I have ever used.
Hello beauties! Okay so I was skeptical about this product at first because I have really oily skin. So I walked into Ulta Beauty & one of the beauty consultants told me to try a sample of the product before making any decisions to buy it or not. Okay I tried it & I'm in love!! It gives you this beautiful flawless look. Its coverage is wonderful. I always use a beauty blender to apply the foundation. Although their's one down side to this product...it's a little too pricey. It's worth every penny though. A little goes a long way! I am in love with this foundation & plan on buying it again after I am done with this bottle.
