Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I have been using this make up for 4 years. I will not change another product. Its flawless bit expensive but last me for a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! That's how my skin looks when wearing it. I have extremely dry skin and am 58. Sun has damaged my skin over time but you cannot tell when I am wearing this makeup. Incredible coverage, a dewy glow and my skin feels hydrated. Please don't ever change this excellent formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great coverage, moist and smooth to apply I have been using this foundation for years. I can't find any other foundation that has the ease of application, moisture and glow that this one provides. I love it and would never use anything else even though it is expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from COLOR CHANGE, CAUTION & CUSTOMER SERVICE For years I have loved Absolue Pearl 10C. Lasts all day, covers pores and remains smooth over my 52 year old skin!. Couple of years ago I ran out and found a replacement, new & sealed with current sell by date, on Ebay, less expensive than from Lancome. Shock, horror it was darker and more orange than before. Not the same product at all. Tossed it and purchased from a major department store online. Same issue. I was very sad that Lancome had "changed the formula". Tried other products, never the same. Just before Christmas, decided to try one last time but first I called Lancome customer service. Wonderful experience. Was told about bad batches being 3rd party resold but Lancome stands by their product and was informed about the foundation free return label. I ordered expecting to send it back but my Pearl 10C arrived and it is PERFECT. Lesson learned - order direct from Lancome and contact customer service if you have an issue...its worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST I HAVE EVER USED!! This is the first review for me. This makeup is "hands down" the best I've ever used. I especially recommend it for anyone needing heavier coverage than perhaps you used when younger. That is my situation. I always worry about it being discontinued because it is so perfect for me!. It's more expensive than others but well worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Makeup Ever This is the absolutely best makeup foundation I have ever used! It makes my whole face look years younger and also hide the imperfections I am 65 years old I would recommend this to everyone who wants a faultless younger looking face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multiple benefits, saves time, space, money! Absolue gives great, natural looking coverage,protects your skin from the sun, and moisturizes it. Ideal for dry, sensitive skin women wanting to look great without spending tons of time or money. I would not change it for any other foundation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect match! I bought the Pearl shade for my very fair skin and my daughter said it was magical how closely it matched my own skin. Not only the color but the texture is lovely, it does not gather in creases or build up on the patches of dry skin that I continually struggle with like so many other foundations I have tried. Solid coverage and because it's part of the Absolue line, I feel like I'm actually doing something nice for my skin when I wear this foundation. Love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but I got a shade that's a little too light for me. I don't like that the cream doesn't absorb well on my nose, it sticks out on my pores like baby acne. Anyway, it's just ok.
Date published: 2016-10-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage This is one of the very few cream foundation that can cover my melasma spots and believe me I have many. There was a time my hyper pigmentation peppered my face and neck that I didn't want to go out of the house. After my dermatologist told me that I can cover it with full coverage foundation I finally gathered strength to look for the perfect foundation to do it. I found it in this cream foundation. It oxidizes so well that it actually matched the shade of my skin rendering the melasma almost invisible. It also takes so little to get full coverage. I will definitely get another pot as soon as the one I have is nearly gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolute makeup is superb I have been a Lancôme user for more than thirty years. It all started out at Bullocks in Santa Ana, Ca. I became allergic to many makeups. A makeup artist recommended this product and I am extremely happy with your products. I get complements so often from other ladies about my pretty makeup and wonderful complexion. Of course I tell them use Lancome products that is the secret. With Absolute coverage it covers flaws so well and looks so natural. I am very thankful to be able to use such a fine product. Please do not change its contents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sadly, this beautiful foundation in Pearl 10 Cs no longer the same shade. First, please note that I have been brand-loyal to Lancome for a very long time. I have found Absolue Pearl 10 C to give the most beautiful coverage, in the most perfect shade.Have used this foundation from the time it was introduced. How disappointing to find that it is not at all the same beautiful shade.Have had to return jars three times after opening. There is nothing that compared to Absolue, and now the shade is too dark; no longer the same. Please correct what ever has changed so that Pearl 10 C is once again the lovely, light shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST!!! I have used this for years and love the coverage and also I come back to it when I've tried others. It also lasts a long time so the cost is very good too! Thanks for a great product Lancome!! Never stop, my local department store stopped stocking it for some time but called my a few weeks ago letting me know they will have it in stock now so I will buy it from them instead of on line...Sincerely,, Darlene (an old representative when I sold Lancome in 1970's, loyalty ever since!!!)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New jar of makeup has a very different color-fake looking I have been wearing 20N pearl for over 10 years and purchased a jar $68 and when opened I found that it was no longer my beautiful beige color but is now a fake looking peach color. Shock! On the phone 30 minutes with a customer service gentleman who could not resolve question/complaint but advises I must call another number on Monday. No supervisors on duty per the gentleman. I cannot believe his department would not have information regarding this issue because after getting on line and reading other reviews, I see that others have had the color issue regarding their regular Absolue foundations. I have always loved this foundation and hope Lancôme can resolve this for me. I just need my color back. This peachy thing is terrible. Love this otherwise-please fix my color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only choice 4 me This make up is my favorite. I needed a long lasting product when I was working 17-18 hour days. It definitely met the mark & I continue to purchase even though my work days have lessened but it's an all day great make up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved my winter dryness issue I finally found the key to managing my winter-dry skin. I was using up to three moisturizers at a time (including hardcore stuff like Nutrix) trying to alleviate the extreme dryness I experience around my t-zone. In the winter this dryness gets really bad (I generally have combo skin). I was using some drugstore foundation and my skin would start peeling as soon as I put it on. I thought I wasn't moisturizing right but it turns out all I needed was a really good moisturizing foundation. Using Absolue has freed me from all the darn moisturizers - I can now get away with even just a serum if I want. This makeup makes my skin look dewy radiant! The coverage on this is excellent, so I don't need a lot. The container I bought will probably last nearly a year. I am so glad I found this! Note: for dry to very dry skin only - NOT for oily skin

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The color and texture was changed without notice. Poor change! I have used Absolue Ecru 20C foundation for more that 10 years. The last one I bought at Belk in Florence,SC before a trip overseas was completely different! I have tried to use it, but I look like a cadaver!!! the tonality is totally different and it also has the feeling of a PASTE! It used to be awsome!! I expended so much money because it used to give me a complete coverage but with a soft and creamy finish. I just returned to US and moved to NC, what can I do?? I am really disappointed! I appreciate your reply. luzcita

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creme de la Creme! The best foundation ever made. It is by far superior to any other foundation. Smooth, creamy, super coverage especially for older skin. It is expensive but if applied with the Lancôme brush - it lasts a long time because not much is needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have used this product for years. I'm no longer pleased with it. I'm looking for a new foundation. When the jar is first opened it is rich and creamy. It soon becomes thicker and less easy to apply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product to provide moisture and hydration I have been using this product for a few years now as my skin has aged and needs more moisture. I love it! I will continue to use and recommend for others with this same issue.
