Absolue Makeup Cream Foundation is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 147.
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 great for dry skin I have extremely dry skin that flakes off. This product works great for me especially when I use it with renergie lift and then some primer. It's gives a lot of coverage, blends easily and doesn't fade off.

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.

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.

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.
