My favorite thing about this product isColor
Purchased Rouge Resille (313-deep rose berry) and it looks beautiful against dark skin. However, it doesn't last long. I've used product by itself, over pencil, with a primer and it fades quickly. Only thing I haven't tried is a shellac over the lipstick. But I love the color and it moisturizers well so I'll continue to use since I'm glossed-out and prefer lipstick.

Used 453 from the new fall color collection for a pedicure. Beautiful, rich color; chipped after 5 days (which I've never experienced with a pedicure) but did not use Lancome top coat.

EXTREMELY DRY-Wrinkles-I use ONLY Absolue products-LOVE THEM

I have the driest skin EVER! I am 65 years old. I must apply moisturizer under makeup -otherwise my "Absolue Cream" (in a jar)-would NEVER go on smoothly. I have very pale Swedish skin.

Liquid makeup does not cover-it seems to wear off too soon. My skin has discoloration which is not noticeable with my Absolue Cream makeup.

Because of my dry skin, I have to stay away from powders-

Can you give me any advice about what else I should be doing? I use Absolue Pearl 20.
BeeEgervari,

Since you use Absolue color cosmetics, consider using Absolue skincare. Absolue Premium BX comes in both cream and lotion, and Absolue Precious Cells is a cream. I suggest stopping by a Lancome counter, obtaining samples, and see which works best for you. However, if your skin is extremely dry, consider Nutrix Royal for very dry skin, which I use as a night cream.

Another option, in addition to moisturizers, is adding oils to your skincare routine, after cleansing and before moisturizer//foundation. Evening Primrose oil and Sea Buckthorn oil work remarkably well for dry skin. Hope this helps!

Visionnaire

When do I use this? And do I put it all over my face? I received this as a sample and am not sure exactly what it does or what it is for. I have combination skin, olive complexion and am 63. I love the Lancome products. Thank you.
Debby,

This is a serum, so you can use after toner and before moisturizer, all over your face, neck and chest. I've also used it on top of moisturizer (as a primer) and it keeps my makeup in place.

Is this meant for cool or warm undertones?

I am not sure if this is meant for cool undertones only, or warm as well. Appreciate any input. Thank you
sherma23,

Check the letters after the colors: W=Warm, C=Cool, N=Neutral.

What is the best solution for oily skin?

Mahua,

Since you don't specify exactly what you're looking for or what problems you'd like to address, here are suggestions for oily skin:

Serums:
--Visionnaire
--Genefique

Moisturizers:
--Bienfait Aqua Vital Lotion
--Bienfait Multi Vital Lotion SPF 30
--Renergie Oil Free Lotion

Serums absorb quickly so they work well with all skin types and help smooth lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and can be applied both under and over moisturizer (I prefer under). Visionnaire helps with pores and uneven skin tone and I find makeup performs better. I use both Visionnaire and Genefique simultaneously.

Renergie and Bienfait Aqua are both oil-free but Renergie focuses on anti-aging/firming. Benfait Multi contains SPF. All absorb well and leave your skin prepared for makeup application.

Experiment and see which products work best for you.

KH.

what is better for wrinkles and pores High Resolution or Renergie Lift?

Valr,

For the most part both but I find that firming products, like Rénergie, tend to dry my skin so pores may look smaller but High Resolution works better for me on wrinkles. I suggest sampling both and seeing which works best. Now, even though I find firming products drying, Absolue is a firming moisturizer that hydrates very well.

If you like serums, Visionnaire will take care of pores and smooth skin, so you can just use an anti-wrinkle moisturizer on top.

which one is better for oily skin, HIGH RÉSOLUTION REFILL-3X or RÉNERGIE LIFT MULTI-ACTION?

MaddyS,

You can most likely use both for oily skin but I find that firming products tend to dry skin more so if you have very oily skin, the Rénergie Lift may better suit your needs. If you like oil-free moisturizers, consider Rénergie Oil-Free Lotion, Bienfait Aqua Vital Cream and Bienfait Aqua Vital Lotion. Also, using Visionnaire before moisturizer tends to control oil.
