Rated 4 out of 5 by from New problem with sponge applicator I'm on my third or fourth Dual Finish, and with this last one, the compact does not close with the sponge applicator inside. I usually use this product dry with the sponge, and I need to be able to store the sponge inside the compact. No such luck this time. Except for this, which is very annoying, I've been happy with the color, the texture, etc of Dual Finish used as a powder. For foundation, I use a liquid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cover up powder. I've been wearing this for years. Great long lasting powder. I wear it on its own but does pair well with there concealer. I feel like you don't need concealer when you wear this as it blends in the skin nicely. Hides my redness and blemishes well. Only rubs off when I work out and wipe my face specifically instead of blotting but that's ok. Great product. !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 2 in 1 foundation/powder Been using this product for many years. I have tried others and found this one gives me the best coverage for a combination skin day or night. Doesn't feel heavy or cakey. Definitely sticking to this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last all day I love this product. The coverage is great and it literally lasts all day. It can be more expensive then drugstore’s products but down the road you are saving money as you don’t need to touch up several times a day. I apply it in the morning and that’s it!!! I always get compliments about my skin. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product I have used this powder foundation for several years now and love it! It is smooth and light weight yet covers nicely. The foundation can be used either dry or wet, I have always used it in dry form. What is really nice is that there are enough color choices so that one can find the right color for summer (when skin is a bit darker due to sun) or winter use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good coverage and long lasting powder I love this powder and have been using it for years. It has great coverage and looks natural. Also, it can be used as a foundation if the sponge is dampened. I buy only one of these powders a year because they last so long that I don't need to buy them more often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Foundation Ever This Lancôme Powder Foundation is the best and I have missed it dearly. I was offered another type of foundation through my work. I figured it was free and I would give it a try. Well sometimes free is not always a great thing. My skin looked dry, tired and by the end of the day you couldn’t even tell I was wearing makeup. So I went online and purchased what I know my skin needed. One reason I love this foundation is because you can use it multiple ways. With a brush, a sponge or even dampen the little cosmetic puff it comes with. I have aging skin and this product covers all my imperfections. Also I just love the way it makes my skin feel. I will never accept another free product. I am using Lancome for the rest of my life

This powder smells way too much, can you bring back the fragrance free, at least EVERYONE could where that powder?

Please bring back the fragrance free. There is so many others that have written in about it, why don't you give customers what they like. I have tried another of your powders and don't like it. I was a huge advocate of the frag free dual finish powder and am extremely happy that it is gone. I have been looking at other brands and will continue to until I find something I like. I don't like to buy from all different places so when I find something I'll likely buy most/ all products from that competitor. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the dual finish fragrance free powder, at least everyone can wear that powder, not everyone can wear what you currently have and there is a lot of complaints!!
Asked by: missline
YES!!! PLEASE BRING BACK THE UNSCENTED dual finish powder. I am sensitive to fragrance and love this powder but I will have to find another. I will try to find it on ebay!

Dual finish in-between shade

Hi ... Matt Honey III is a bit to dark for me in the winter months ... for some reason, I've purchased a Buff II which is way too light. Can you please recommend a color which would be just a bit lighter than the Matt Honey III and not in the super yellow"ish" tones ... I believe a more pinkish tone suits me better. Thank you.
Asked by: DLS1209
My complexion is olive. I can use Matte Honey if I'm really tan, but Matte Amande III seems to be a good in-between shade for me. I also like Matte Clair II in the winter and used to get Matte Beige Camee, but that one seems to have been discontinued. If you want more pink undertones go for the cool color groups. Hope that helps!

Matte sable iv.

Hello, I have used dual finish matte sable IV before, and would like to get it again, but it is no longer included in the list of shades. What is the corresponding code in the new shade list? I am mediterranean, and have medium intensity skin tone. Thank you
Asked by: Blalbla
Dear Blalbla, I'm sorry that I can't help you more, but it seems like your color would fall into one of the Suede shades, of which there are 9, and about half seem to be a medium intensity. If you can't make a match from the colors online, going into a store that carries Lancome is always a good opportunity to find out what's new and make sure everything is updated and working together. And, there could always be a gift with purchase! Good luck.

I use Neutralle II most months.I'm lighter in the winter and am having a hard time finding a shade.Do any of the lighter shades have any yellow tones?

Asked by: AmandaLeigh
Hi Amanda, If you are wearing the Nuetralle II primarily, I would only go one shade lighter to the Versatile Porcelaine DIVOIRE I (MATTE SAND) 130 (N) in Winter months. I can't say that this shade has yellow tones, but I don't know if that's what you want if you're going lighter. I think this one step fairer would be the best idea. I wear the other Porcelaine shades, and they are very very fair, almost white. I hope that helps!

EXTREMELY DRY-Wrinkles-I use ONLY Absolue products-LOVE THEM

I have the driest skin EVER! I am 65 years old. I must apply moisturizer under makeup -otherwise my "Absolue Cream" (in a jar)-would NEVER go on smoothly. I have very pale Swedish skin. Liquid makeup does not cover-it seems to wear off too soon. My skin has discoloration which is not noticeable with my Absolue Cream makeup. Because of my dry skin, I have to stay away from powders- Can you give me any advice about what else I should be doing? I use Absolue Pearl 20.
Asked by: BeeEgervari
BeeEgervari, Since you use Absolue color cosmetics, consider using Absolue skincare. Absolue Premium BX comes in both cream and lotion, and Absolue Precious Cells is a cream. I suggest stopping by a Lancome counter, obtaining samples, and see which works best for you. However, if your skin is extremely dry, consider Nutrix Royal for very dry skin, which I use as a night cream. Another option, in addition to moisturizers, is adding oils to your skincare routine, after cleansing and before moisturizer//foundation. Evening Primrose oil and Sea Buckthorn oil work remarkably well for dry skin. Hope this helps!

Yes, if anything the powder will absorb excess oil that might cause break outs. Not to mention you can apply it as light or heavy as you desire.
