Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oily Mess I tried this product for a month. At first you get a really nice matte finish, but after an hour or so your face is shinning. The makeup literally melted off my face and the weather want even hot nor was I doing physical active.I have dry skin so this has never been an issue. I would definitely not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great foundation I've been buying this since I was 16. I'm 46. My skin has changed over time and this has adapted to it. I don't wear it all the time anymore but I do love it. It's so versatile. You can use the a brush, the pad, or the puff. You can wear it wet or dry. What more could ask for?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, cheap puff I have bought this product for several years and have constantly complained the powder puff that comes with this product is so cheap I hesitate reordering each time I am in need of this product. Even tho I love my dual finish powder (I do not use as a foundation), I wish they would include a more substantial puff for the dry powder. Please improve the quality of the powder puff! The current one is clearly below Lancome's standards!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ultimate Powder Ladies, do not even waste your time or money trying another powder. I have used this for over 23 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Coverage I purchased this product for summer and liked it so much I have decided to use it throughout the fall and winter. I have dry skin but the Lancome moisturizers are so effective I can use this foundation dry with no problem. It is easy to apply, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best powder makeup it was super easy to find exactly the color to match my skin tone and undertone, powder coverage so effective, I didn't have to use the liquid application option, but it's nice to know you can!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very smooth I had mixed feeling while buying this online. But after I used it my friends noticed that my face looks fresh and they were asking did I change my hairstyle or something. Which is a good review for me because I don't want people to find out I've makeup on . For me makeup should be subtle but make ur face look bright. And this product does that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lancome dessert isle perfection Dual Finish is very versatile, I especially like that it is buildable in my "t- zone" where I am oily during hot & humid days. Another PRO is that it comes in so many shades that you're sure to find your perfect shade for early spring, summer, and winter. About the only CON: it comes with just two sponge applicators and none of the Darius recommended "spray setting mist".

Is the Dual Finish powder foundation oil-free?

Asked by: Dmayes
Dual Finish powder is not an oil free product. For an oil free powder, I recommend Translucence. This mattifying powder is oil free.

I need help with selecting a shade.

I would like to order the Dual Finish, but it is hard to select a shade on a computer. Is there any help available?
Asked by: Nana
Go to a Lancome counter and select your shades there. If you order online without first trying a color, be prepared for [multiple] returns/exchanges.

I know which foundation color I use, but which Powder?

I use the Teint Idole Fresh wear- Bisque 4 There is no local lancome store I can go to so does anyone know which powder would go best with this color?
Asked by: santacruz91
My suggestion is Matte Wheat in Dual Finish and 300 Bisque in Translucence. I strongly recommend NOT ordering color cosmetics without testing (esp. foundation), but you can exchange if it doesn't work out.

Dual Finish in Amande III does come in a fragrance free formula. Select "Dual Finish Fragrance Free" under the "Powders" category to be sure you get the formula without a scent.

The last time I purchased this product , it was available in fragrance free. I am allergic to your pressed powder with fragrance added.

I want to buy more of this product, but I need the one that is fragrance free. Do you still make it? The one I have now is just about gone. I love the product, but when I tried the one with fragrance, my eyes swelled up and became very irritated. I have to wear fragrance free make up. HELP!
