Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage for all ages. This is what my mother has used for years and continues to use still at 97, and gets lots of compliments on how her skin looks. This product goes on smoothly enhancing her pale skin perfectly. She actually looks fantastic. I am her MUA and this product is great and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY MIRACLE MAKEUP! I call this my MIRACLE MAKEUP! Try it and you will AGREE! I have used Lancome foundations since I was a teenager. NOTHING else comes close to Lancome foundations and this is the BEST Lancome has to offer! Your skin will look flawless with a healthy youthful glow. You will look fresh and rested not garish or phony. No one will notice your makeup because this blends perfectly. It FLOATS on your skin making discoloration, lines and wrinkles disappear. I also love the liquid Absolue. The cream formula has more coverage and hides a multitude of sins -- like stress, sun damage and age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This makeup is awesome sauce! I have been using Lancôme's absolue makeup for over 10 years and it's awesome sauce! I'm 53, have dry skin, and live in southeastern Arizona. So that means super-duper dry. This foundation is creamy, dewy and does NOT settle into my lines/wrinkles. When I have my make up on people think I am 10 years younger than I actually am. It gives good, buildable coverage, and one jar lasts a long time. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lancome does it again! My favorite foundation, Teint Visionnaire was discontinued a while ago and I was running out of it. Reluctantly, I ordered the Absolue cream foundation. It covers so well that I don't need corrector. I apply it with a brush and I find that a little goes a long way. I am 51 years old and I am happy with my skin because of this makeup.

You cannot do a bad job putting it on. If you are looking for a very light foundation like BB like is not it. This gives you an overall coverage that gives you that movie star quality. Again just love it!!

I have been using ABSOLUE ecru 20 C. It is currently out of stock. What would be a comparable product and shade?

Asked by: Decorlady
Since there's really no telling what a shade will look like on your skin, I highly recommend going to your local Lancome counter and checking out other shades by trying them on. You could try Absolue BX makeup (in the pump) and Ecru 225 C might be comparable, but I would highly recommend having a Lancome expert at the counter try some different shades on your skin.

Help in finding the right shade PLEASE

Hi, I'm 48 & have normal-combination type skin in the summer but dry in the winter..I have my 30th class reunion coming up on Nov. 23 of this year...There are no stores in my area that carry LANCOME but I'm wanting to purchase it..I've read the review's and I'm going to upload a picture of me so hopefully it might help in finding the right shade..I did the shade match and was given all ecru color's.. I only have a few fine line's under my eye area, no deep wrinkle's or bad sagging YET and I'm full coverage when it comes to foundation but NOT TOO full coverage to the point where it looks like you can see layer's and layer's piled on..According to everything I've read on the internet this LANCOME foundation would be my best choice but then I saw on HSN how amazing the Teint Visionnaire Correcting make up duo and it looked wonderful on the models..It only comes in the colors 110 Ivoire C, 220 Buff C, 310 Bisque C, & 420 Bisque N... Which do you think I should buy?? I'd like to have that profssional flawless look also.. Help PLEASE ASAP....Thanks
Asked by: SweetChick88
I too use the ecru colors and like the ecru 05 c . The color you need depends on your skin tone, hair color etc. I have dark hair, but the fair/med complexion with some freckles than I inherited from my redhead mother. The Ecru 05 has a tint of pink that complements my skin, unlike some of the others that have yellow tones.

I have dry skin and have been using Absolue BX Shade 225(C) for years. Would the Renergist or another Lancome makeup be better

for my skin? During my last makeover, the makeup artist used the cream makeup in a jar (Ecru 20). I now have a lot of age spots which are difficult to cover.
Asked by: nanna
Hello, If you have dry skin, then you are already using the best foundation makeup line for your skin type. The Renergie makeup line is meant to lift, firm and provide a radiant complexion, while the Absolue makeup line is for ultra moisturization all day. The Absolute Replenishing Cream Makeup provides maximum coverage for an even complexion that replenishes the skin. The Absolute Replenishing Radiant Makeup provides moderate to full coverage and is ideal for normal to dry skin types. If you have dry skin and are looking for hydration and coverage, the cream makeup formula would be best for you. I hope this answer was helpful. Thank you for choosing Lancome!

what does the letter codes mean after the ecru colors, like N or W or C

also, I have dry skin, is the absolue the right foundation for me?
Asked by: sashas
For the most part N = Neutral, W = Warm and C = Cool -- these designations are used to determine your skin tone. GENERALLY, if your skin has pink or rosy undertones, it's cool; if your skin has golden or apricot undertones, it's warm. Neutral tends to sway one way or the other (I find neutral colors more on the "cool/ashy" side). I strongly suggest going to a counter and trying colors before purchasing because the wrong color can make your appear washed-out. Absolue skincare and makeup is good for those with dry skin. Hope this helps!
