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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't do it for me ... ... but my best friend loved it. I purchased this after having it recommended by a foundation questionnaire. However I learned very quickly that it is not meant for combo/oily skin. I gave it to my best friend, who has dry skin, and she loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update on Color I've been using this product for years. I noticed after purchasing a new jar in May the color had changed - I use Pearl 20N - the color was orange toned. Horrible. I called Lancôme and was told others had complained, they took it off the market and replaced the formula. I received my new jar and it is like the original formula - GREAT!!! I am so happy they fixed the problem as this product stays on all day and looks wonderful. I have many compliments on my makeup base. The only negative I have to say is the stores I frequent to purchase Lancôme were unaware of this issue and still selling the bad formula jars. Lancôme needs to pull the product when inferior. Hopefully, they will continue with the original formula as it works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color not the same Ive been wearing Absolue makeup since its debut, I love the coverage. When I reordered a jar on it was clearly too yellow and much darker. I purchased a new Absolue at Nordstrom and opened it in the presence of the Lancome rep. When comparing it to my old jar the color again was too dark and too yellow. I hope Lancome can resolve this problem in a timely manner because nothing else compares.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The color/shade changed Hello all...I'm not the only one who has gone through this with Lancome. I used Pearl 20 which was perfect for me then was astonished when my last order arrived to see a much lighter/yellowy color that was horrid on me. The sweet customer rep tried to tell me maybe I had left my old Pearl 20 unopened too long. After being put on hold several worries on that....she did say there was a problem, not a change but a problem. At any rate....I am now wearing Ecru 20 (C)...the shade is close enough. Hope this helps others. Yes! I do love the product, wouldn't have put so much time into it had I not. Also, I am 61 and have dry skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from color has changed very upsetting I love this product, due to having discolored skin which i quite dry, its actually the only foundation i can use (other full coverage foundation seems to be drying. AFTER i fell in love with this foundation in the only shade that works 100% for me (Pearl 10 Cool) the color is now very dark I discovered this just a few days before my vacation, bought it then when i opened it i(it was sealed in plastic) i thought wow that looks dark, but figured it had to be the lighting or my imagination. However i then found old jars of the product and compared and saw i was right it was quite dark. i returned it to Macys and they confirmed it was likely a mislabeled jar, But after they opened other jars they found them all to be way darker. So i then drove to another county and same deal, at Nordstroms, and Macys and Dillards, all 3 Lancome reps said the product was darker. I had hoped they had resolved this by now, but now the product is not available in any stores and i fear ordering it. I have for now swtiched to Ecru 5 Cool or Pearl 20 (N) both are a bit too dark but still better and lighter than Pearl 10 Cool is at least for now

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Foundation!! I have used Absolue Pearl 10 foundation since it was introduced and have found it to be the best foundation I have ever used. It offers maximum coverage and its moisture properties are great for my dry skin. However, something has changed with the color of Pearl 10, it is noticeably darker and too dark for my skin tone. Not sure why Lancome would change that shade but hope it goes back to what it always had been.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Dry Skin with Full Coverage Absolute Makeup foundation provides full coverage and is all day moisturizing. After using and trying so many different brands, this is the best foundation on the market. It evens out my skin tone and covers redness and blends perfectly. This foundation also works so well with my very sensitive skin. I have a dewy glow all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only foundation that works for me! I have tried many of Lancome foundations. While they may work for others, the Absolute Replenishing Cream is the only one with enough moisture for my aging skin. Unfortunately, I cannot purchase this foundation in my closest Macy store and do have to order online. No problem as long as Lancome continues to make this foundation and Macys continues to carry it. Love this foundation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation for dry skin This is by far the best foundation I have ever used for my dry skin. The price is getting outrageous, but I can't find anything else that compares to the coverage Absolue gives. It's smooth and not "cakey" like some thicker foundations. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Finish to Makeup Regime I have been using Absolue for quite a few years and am soon to be 69. Nobody believes my age because I take care of my skin and use this absolutely wonderful make-up. One light layer with another built on top of it is much better than one thick layer. It builds beautifully and leaves my skin smooth, soft, and even looking. I can't say enough about this product. I was particularly pleased with the color, as my skin is extremely light and Absolue had just the right shade for me that blends in beautifully and doesn't look like a mask of make-up. This is a fine product that I definitely recommend to anyone of any age. it's not only smoothing and soft looking, but also seems to have a moisturizing effect as well.

Asked by: Randi10

Currently using Renergie 30C what color would best match?

Asked by: sqwat141

Has the Absolue Cream Makeup changed anything in the color of Pearl C (10)? I just purchased a new jar and it looks orange and dark on me.

I have been using this product and color for about 12 years. Could the jar be packaged incorrectly or has the product changed? Something is terribly wrong, it even looks dark in the jar. I guess I will go and exchange to see if it is old or something - if Lancôme has not made a change.
