Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best powder I have ever tried! This powder really is a great product. The texture is really creamy and smooth on the skin, and it has a fresh and clean scent to it. I usually wear it over liquid foundation, and it does a wonderful job setting foundation, controlling oil and further perfecting my skin. It comes in a compact with a mirror, which is helpful for touch-ups on the go, and has the powder puff and sponge applicators for different effects. The video "Powder Makeup How- To By Michelle Phan" (found here on the Lancome website Under Makeup Tips - Michelle Phan) explains all the different ways you can use this powder with the given applicators. Truly a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Foundation Powder Ever! I have been using this pressed powder for years. I wear no other foundation. It comes with two sponges- a thicker one for applying thicker foundation and a light puff for a light finish and touch-ups. I am not allergic to this powder and am to most others. This is also the only product light enough for my very fair skin without darkening or turning orange after application. It is more expensive than most other brands but lasts a very long time and the product is superior to anything else I've tried. I use it and it's the product I purchase for my teenager also. Very happy with this product! Please never change it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product Ever Lancome makes a lot of great products. This is my favorite. It works as well wet as it does dry. I mostly use dry it on top of foundation when getting ready at the house. Living in Vegas (hot), I hate carrying foundation with me for touch ups. If I need more than a powder touch up while out, I just wet the sponge and am good to go. It feels great on the skin whereas some products feel dry. Takes away shine in an instant when used dry. If you want a natural look (with a little help), this really is the only product you need to own. I love the way it smells too unlike my cc cream from another brand. I will be trying the Regenerie tinted moisturizer once said cc cream is gone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Parabans & Frangrance, WHY????? Dual Finish Fragrance Free was great, I used it all the time. Unfortunately, the only Dual Finish available now is this one - it has FRAGRANCE and PARABANS and my skin can tolerate neither. Why does Lancome insist on putting Fragrance in their formulas? I absolutely hate fragrance in my makeup. Lipstick is another issue, fragrance and flavor...NO LANCOME..I do not want to smell my lipstick or taste it while I am dining or sipping my wine... Really Lancome, there is a large market of us that DO NOT WANT FLAVOR and FRAGRANCE in our products. Perhaps you could consider this for future additions to your line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My all-time favorite foundation I am oily with large pores and a bit of redness through the cheeks. I used BE until I reached my mid-thirties, at which point, it settled into my fine lines and made my pores look huge. I tried multiple foundations, both liquid and powder. Nothing really worked well. The liquids made me too shiny and caused break outs. The powders continued to sink into my pores and fine lines. Then I tried Dual Finish. FINALLY, a foundation that lasted more than a couple of hours and didn't make me look old! The coverage is medium and covers the bit of redness in my skin without emphasizing my pores and fine lines. This powder is buildable without getting cakey. I'd highly recommend this to anyone with oily sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super value I love this make-up. I have used Clinique, BeautiControl, Revlon, Estee' Lauder, name it, I've tried it. As I have aged, my freckles and skin have become darker. This coverage allows my freckles to show through, without being heavy and dark. My makeup artist at Dillards in Texarkana (shout-out) always helps me with new products, and lets me experiment with new colors when the seasons change and/or my skin changes. This product is the best investment. If you only have enough money for two products, buy this powder and the definicils mascara. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Powder! I love this powder as much as I love their new 24 hr foundation. The color match is incredible with my tan complexion, and it doesn't get darker if I reapply. If I want a full look, I can dust this over my foundation, but I found out this weekend that if I'm just in a hurry and only have time to dust a little of this on, that works just fine - and it looks perfect with just the sponge so you don't have to use a brush to get an even look. I have perfect coverage with this powder, and I've never experienced that! It feels so good on too...controls my oily skin with barely a need to touch up. I am SOOOO happy to get rid of my messy bare minerals and switch to this. It makes getting ready so much cleaner and faster for me in the it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have to Have It! I have been using Dual Finish Foundation over my moisturizer for at least a dozen years or more. It works well on my dry, sensitive skin and make my face look great. I used to use it with the sponge that came with it, but over the past couple of years I have used it with a Kabuki Brush. It covers things that I want covered without feeling heavy. I don't even feel it on my skin. I have tried some other less expensive foundations over the years but I always come back to Dual Finish. It is long lasting (for me) which ends up making it worth the cost. People always compliment me on my flawless looking skin and I believe I have Lancome Dual Finish to thank for that. This is something I HAVE to have in my makeup bag and something I always wear!

What powder foundation is best for a 65 year old?

I've worn liquid foundation for most of my life, but I'm tired of using it. I have tried a few powder foundations and found them more convenient. My skin is drier in the cheek area, with more oil on my nose and chin. I also have wrinkles, particularly on my forehead and between my eyes. Are there any of your powder foundations that will work for me?
Asked by: Beth
My suggestion would be to ask a beauty adviser either online or if you have a high end department store like Macy's, Nordstroms, Dillards, or Belk, close to where you live, ask for more information at the Lancome counter. Dual Finish gives off a "matte" type of appearance and may not be right for your skin type. You really need to try it on for yourself, to get an idea if it works. Ask questions of the beauty adviser, they will be able to direct you to the foundation that is right for you.

is this makeup oil free and okay for oily skin

Asked by: kary
I have really oily skin along my T-zone (nose, forehead, chin) and recently switched over to Dual Finish. I love it!! I still have to use blotting pads mid day because my face produces a lot of oil. But I only apply this foundation once in the morning and it stays on all day. Also doesn't make my oily skin breakout like liquid foundations tend to do.

What shade should I use if my foundation is 320 w bisque

Asked by: cher
The general guidance is to try to find the shade that most closely matches if there's no exact match by number. I didnt like the scent of the dual finish, so i don't use it.

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.
