Project: Bright Skin Week -ABSOLUE-tly perfected skin with Lancôme's Essence FoundationMonday, June 16, 2014
Ok, I think I may have found my HG foundation. I have raved and recommended foundations in the past but never have I tried anything remotely close to this foundation. Lancôme has always come up with fascinating foundations (my ultimate favorite
was is their Photogenic Lumessence but I think that was discontinued?), and I wasn't surprised that this would win my heart as my HG foundation -for now anyway.
|Lancôme ABSOLUE Sublime Rejuvinating Essence Foundation in Ivorie-O, PhP 4,495|
I have always believed, and I still believe that one should never scrimp on a makeup base. If you have the perfect base, everything else you will put on your face will follow and come together nicely. If you have terrible, ashy, and cake base, no matter how expensive your eyeshadows and other products may be will not make you look more radiant.
Some foundations look greasy as time rolls by when you're wearing the makeup. But with Lancôme's Absolue Sublime Rejuvenating Essence Foundation, your skin improves every hour! After 4 hours, the skin is 20% firmer and 12% suppler, its tonicity is improved by 36%. After 12 hours, hydration is improved by 20% and after a full day of wear, women find their complexion evened out. When I wore this foundation at 8 in the morning, I did all the errands I needed to do, and met with clients, I didn't even retouch! When I got home, I cooked in the hot kitchen for dinner. As I was freshening up for dinner at around 7PM, I have forgotten that I was wearing makeup. When I looked in the mirror, my face looks radiant and glowing! It wasn't as matte as I had it in the morning, but my skin looked so good. I had a golden glow that radiated skin deep.
