Custom Shade Foundation FAIL? Lancome Le Teint Particulier Foundation

  • Published on Apr 17, 2017
  • Today I'm testing out the Lancome Le Teint Particulier Foundation! This is a custom made foundation that was made to be my perfect shade match. Lets see how it works :)
    ** Now my studio lights are making this foundation look pretty decent, however in person it left me with a grayish cast, especially around my jawline area & it also looked much lighter and too yellow when I went to other areas in my apartment. You definitely are able to see these flaws when I used the flash. Even if the shade matched properly I'm still not a huge fan of the consistency of this foundation and the difficulties I experience while blending it out. I think that if this foundation was darker and just a little bit more smooth in consistency it would've worked better. **

    Some people seem to be upset that the foundation didn't work out so they're taking it out on me telling me I should be grateful that is looked "decent". While the foundation wasn't a TERRIBLE match, it wasn't a perfect match which is the entire purpose of them making this system & charging $80 for it so it should be more accurate than it was. Even in person, it looked slighting ghostly & had a Grey yellow tint to it in natural light. I apologize if it was a let down that it didn't work but I can either be honest or be a fraud and lie and said it worked great which I refuse to do because I care about where you guys money goes.

      Alissa Ashley I'd rather you be honest !!! It's sooooo many products out here competing for our coins... some worth it some not... you were not telling people not to purchase it, you gave a clear & concise review!!!! It is up to the individual to see if they are willing to try it for themselves!!! Girl keep those reviews coming it's good to get to see what a product's potential may or may not be๐Ÿ’ฏ

      "Decent?!" $90 should get you 'your skin just better' perfect, definitely not decent. It irritates me when I have to finesse a foundation even after they promise a "perfect match"...for "all skin tones".

    I agree that it's shitty that you didn't get your match, but girl, you told them to scan 3 areas of your face which are the lightest. I'm guessing you wanted it to match the rest of your skin so it would have been better to have them scan like once on your face and a couple on your neck because that's what it looks like you were trying to match. The foundation does absolutely match the tones of your face, but not the rest of your body, and while it's shitty to spend $90 on something and expect it to be perfect, you have to scan the right areas....

    I'm confused. You seemed shocked that the foundation was darker than the shade you already own which matched "perfectly". But when Lancรดme found your perfect shade, you asked for two shades darker..... sooooo it's darker than the one that matched? lol I'm so confused

    • Alissa Ashley
      Alissa Ashley  2 years ago +9

      Your comment confused me lol. I seemed shocked that lancomes "perfect match" was so far off from a shade that matches me perfectly

  • okaayminnie
    okaayminnie 2 years ago

    I've seen a lot of people not like this foundation. One problem is when they match you, the lighting sucks. Like even in Sephora, I hate matching myself because it's so gloomy. At least you got to experience it, i guess lol

  • Destri Tucker
    Destri Tucker 2 years ago +1

    literally no one who has gotten that foundation has had it actually match them. i've heard a few say that they tweaked it from their initial match, just like you, because they wanted it lighter or darker and it was still too dark or light.. if they can't even get close to your actual completion they shouldn't have it on the market yet, nonetheless be selling it for upwards of $80..

  • Mama Bleach
    Mama Bleach 2 years ago +15

    I'm not sure why but it's tricky blending it around the mouth, Jackie had the same problem. Also i don't know if it makes a difference but their oil free primer is pretty bomb and it made a huge difference when i used it before the foundation. Also you're paying $80 for 0.7 oz of foundation lol am i the only one shocked by that?

    Riggins Riggins 2 years ago +2

    I agree w/you 100%. The foundation is not a match, and I have seen you work with other foundations a lot less than $80.00. I am not happy for you. Back in the day, Neimans had a line called Percriptives and they did a really great match, so worth the $50. 00. I wish they would bring it back to the stores.

    I am assuming that since it was custom made for you, you can not return it. If my assumption is correct, then that sucks. The other thing that really annoys me and to some extent proves my point is that when you're a person of color, people are always assuming you would like to be lighter. I say no! Most people are very happy with the color of their skin and would like to use foundation to hide blemishes and skin imperfection. They dont use foundation for the Michael Jackson effect. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Just because you can afford something that cost 80, you should be happy with that fact. BS, I could have saved an entire year for that experience and I should get what I paid for. Any make up professional worth their salt would say that the shaid was too light for her skin. I love you Alissa, you rock.

    I had a very similar experience being "matched". I am deeper toned so it's already a struggle but I also find some beauty specialists are not the greatest when it comes to matching WOC. I was highly disappointed when I walked into natural lighting and looked like a geisha. I appreciate your honesty! Glad to know I wasn't the only one that this product didn't work for.

    Just judging from your video, it seems like the lighting in the store wasn't that great- kind of dim. Testing in stores has been a problem for me too- what seems to work in the store, is WAY too light at home and in natural light.

    I feel like this foundation is a hit or miss for a lot of people. she's not the first person that didn't really care for it or had a bad shade match. It doesn't look bad, but she has a point. if I'm going to spend 90 bucks on something that is advertised as a PERFECT MATCH, then god damn I better get my perfect match.

    You are so gosh darn pretty... It is total BS that for that price, for that little foundation it should be spot on perfect... I have never found a Lancรดme foundation that I have loved, and I find their shade selection to be difficult in general... I was bummed out when I saw that this wasn't in NYC, because I have a tricky to match skintone, but this is gonna be a hard pass for me even if they do bring it to the east coast.

This could have been worth the money and an amazing product, but they seriously missed the mark. Won't be purchasing this one. I will spend my hard earned cash on something else

    KioArts 2 years ago +31

    I think it matched your face quiet well but as a lot of people have already said the face is usually lighter, well, I think that they should match it to the neck and chest instead. There's still some work to do but I like the idea. I really hope they work on the lighting and on the matching-technique but in my opinion it's not worth the price yet.

  • Crystal Justine

    Can you try the MATCHco app foundation? You download the app, and scan your face with your phone and they match you "perfectly" curious if it's a scam or if it works
