A product designed to make oily skin matte and dry skin moisturized? I was skeptical the first time I picked up Lancome Adaptive. I was matched to shade 03.
It came highly recommended by a friend who also had combination skin. I bought it from my local McCabes Pharmacy, I received lots of Lancome freebies, with my purchase. I love freebies, they make you feel like your getting a better deal.
This is a liquid foundation with SPF10. It is designed for combination skin. The sales spiel blabbered on about mattifying the oily part of your skin whilst moisturising the dry. It’s medium coverage.
The good: It evened out my skintone and cover my blemishes. I quite like the texture. It feels quite rich without being greasy.
The bad: It made my complexion look a little flat. The scent was also a little overpowering.
And the Ugly: After two hours of wear I noticed that my chin was sans make-up! Bear in mind that I wasn’t running a marathon or lying on a beach in Hawaii, I was sitting at the kitchen table! Not a good result.
Overall it’s a bit average for a high end product. It is superior to any “drugstore” foundation I have tried. However, it doesn’t compare to the likes of Make Up Forever, Nars or Chanel.
I certainly won’t be re-purchasing!
