Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product The foundation was long lasting and absorbed the oil that I had on my face. I wore it everyday, for the majority of the day and it had a nice look to it once I applied it. Overall, this product is great and I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite for years Lancome Dual Finish has been my favorite for years, have tried many other brands, but haven't found anything better so far. I have combination skin, acne-prone, and this powder does not cause any breakouts, mattifies my face without overdrying. I use it over foundation, and it sets the foundation really well. My skin has yellow undertones, and this powder has a perfect shade for me, which is not always easy to find among other brands.

What color should I order?

I am fair with perhaps a slight redish tint vs porcelin white and in other dual finish compacts I wear #1 buff. You have so many colors. Do I need to go to a department store to check them out before I can order or can your recommend something?
Asked by: newcustomer
I am also fair complected with some redness and freckles. I use 2 colors, one for winter and one for summer, 090 porcelain and 130 porcelain d'ivoire. There is a significant difference in the two. It would be worth the trip to the makeup counter. This powder works really well concealing redness without additional foundation and still shows my freckles, which I'm happy about. All I use is a moisturizer or sunscreen under the powder and it looks great.

I wear teint idole shade suede 460w. What shade do i need in the dual finish?

Asked by: stinkytoy
it depends on what your using the dual finish powder for because it can be used by itself which is what i love about this product, its foundation, cover up, concealer,all in one. Try using the same color if using each separately. The dual finish would be an alternative to the teint idole its great when you dont have time to do the whole makeup routine and just need to quickly spruce up your face on the go. if you are using the 2 products together I would go a shade or 2 lighter than the teint idole color that your using just so it evens out your skin tone and even possibly give yourself a contoured appearance (if dual finish powder on the t zone only) brightening under eyes,dark areas, high cheekbones maybe chin depending on what look you trying to achieve if you use both of them same shade, you may have a darker color on your face then your neck and jaw line also may look thick or pastie, feeling heavy on your face .Sweating it off and not as long lasting. Eventually needing a reapplication sooner than later from getting warm and sweating

Is 140 (W) "darker" than 120 (N) or does it just have a different undertone?

I find all of these numbers and letters to be very confusing. I wish Lancome would do a better job at that. :-/
Asked by: mimi
Mimi, You are correct. 140 (W) is a bit deeper than 120 (N) and has a warm undertone vs. the neutral of the 120 - no Pinks or Yellows in the Neutrals. I hope this helps.

Several years ago Lancome sold a loose powder foundation and a translucent loose powder that I loved. How does this product compare to the previous

Asked by: Diane
This powder is pressed and gives more of a matte finish. If you are looking for a matte finish, then you might like this. However, if you are looking for a lighter type of powder, then maybe you will want to try something else. This powder is not like the loose powder nor the translucent, as it's thicker in density. Dual finish offers the coverage of foundation with it, which is why the powder is thicker. If you are still undecided, visit a Lancôme counter in a department store or consult online with a beauty advisor. Either way, you will be able to find what you are truly looking for.

Matte Pearl Color Match

Matte Pearl has been discontinued. I was previously told that 90 Porcelain Delicate I would be the correct match, but it is too white/light in color. Is 100 Porcelain Delicate I (C) a possible match?
Asked by: Molly
Yes. This is a very fair shade. If you have any freckles or pink undertones, you may want to consider the 120 Ivoire (N) especially with Summer around the corner. Both are beautiful shades.

Asked by: lisa
Lisa, Have you looked at Versatile Buff II 220 (C) Versatile Ecru II 230 (W) and Versatile Clair II 210 (N) as potential replacements depending on your skins undertone? I can usually wear the neutral and cool colors so I go with the shade that matches my skin the best at the time (summer vs. winter). I hope this helps.

This is the best powder foundation I have ever used! Are you going to reinstate the fragrance-free version? I can tolerate it, but it would be perfect if it were without the fragrance. Just look at the reviews on other retailers, and you will know what I am talking about. You would get a lot more young consumers, some of them state that this has an "old lady" smell. I love the product, just a suggestion for improvement.
Asked by: Lisa42
Lisa, I wish I had an answer for you, but bringing back a fragrance free version is a Lancome corporate decision. I personally like the light signature fragrance, but can certainly understand your desire for a fragrance free version. Removing the fragrance would not deter me from purchasing this powder, so I don't think Lancome can lose by listening to your feedback. Lancome is a wonderful company. I am sure they want to please their customers. We just need to keep telling them what we want and need. Great feedback!

Why does Lancome keep changing the names of colors?? It's hard enough to find the correct color, then they change the name so it's next to impossible

Asked by: Anonymous
I don't know why they change the names of the colors, could be that it may be a new blend of shades and not quite the same exact color. I have been lucky they have made my shade for so many years that it hasn't been a problem but I never use up the entire compact until I have a replacement just incase I need to pick a new color because somebody sitting in a corporate office somewhere decided a change was needed! How many times have we all used a product that we love only to find out it's no longer available...Ugh!

Matte Pearl I shade match?

I used to purchase dual finish powder in Matte Pearl I, can't find this shade anymore. Closest shades still don't match me, either too pink or too yellow or just too light. Does anyone know the new name for Matte Pearl I?
Asked by: Anonymous
Have you tried Ivoire 120 or 140? The 120 is Neutral but the 140 is warm like Matte Pearl 1. I know how frustrating a change like this can be... If the two shades above don't work have you tried a search online to see it anyone is selling discontinued stock? Lancome would probably not be happy reading this but if they hadn't changed your color you would not need to look elsewhere! I wish you good luck!!!

If my shade match for the Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation is 320 Bisque W, what is the shade equivalent for the Dual Finish Powder Foundation?

Asked by: Rene
410 Bisque (W) would work for you, you could also use 150 Ivory (W). Personally I sometimes like a slightly lighter powder to go over my foundation. This way it can highlight above your blush and with help of your bronzer contour.

i wear 140(N) ivoire in 24 hour -- will 140(w) work or should i use 120(n)?

Asked by: echo59
It depends on your skin. If you have warm undertones and want to play that up, then yes, use 140W. 120 N and 140N are for neutral undertones.....not cool or warm. Warm undertones have more yellow and/or gold tones in the skin. A cool undertone has a pinkish cast to it. I would wear which ever you feel best wearing.

What shade would match the Tint Idole 280 Bisque W or 410 Bisque W?

These two colors match my skin tone. What is an equivalent if I use DF?
Asked by: FeMa
What you need to do, is look at what Dual Finish tones there are. It's kind of hard to "match" online sometimes. Based on your question, check the "Versatile Neutral" tones in the Dual Finish. If you are still confused, and your electronic device has the ability to "chat", try "chatting" with one of the online beauty advisors. I have found that they offer great advice and are most helpful. There's even a "foundation match" area on the foundation site, that might help as well.

What color should I get ? I use 270 Bisque W in theiTeint Idole 24H !

I have yellow undertones
Asked by: Vanyrm
If you plan on using Dual Finish as a powder, to finish or set your foundation, there are two ways to go about this. Take a cotton swab of your foundation, apply a "stripe" to the top of your hand, and hold it next to the screen. See, which color matches best. In looking over the shades there was a "Bisque C" level, that might work. There's a foundation match located on the foundation page of the Lancôme website, which can help you as well. If you tried that, and are still confused, "chat" with a beauty advisor on the Lancôme website. I have found them to be really helpful.
