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!
