This fantastic new foundation combines gorgeous, natural looking coverage with 2% concentration of the high-tech ingredient of the serum (LR 2412), thus offering a double whammy of makeup and skincare benefits.

The foundation is housed in a very pretty glass bottle with a pump dispenser for ease of use. Very cleverly, there is also a concealer contained in the lid of the bottle for extra coverage where necessary.

When taking into consideration the fact that you are buying two products in one, as well as the inherent skincare attributes of the foundation, the €45 price tag seems like pretty good value.

The base itself is excellent - it is fluid and applies like a dream. I use between one and two pumps for my face, and find the coverage to be medium, but it feels weightless. With a touch of powder on my T-zone it lasts really well throughout the day, this has most definitely become my number one product to reach for every morning.

There are 18 shades available in Teint Visionnaire, I've been using 005, the palest shade of the bunch. Available at Lancome counters nationwide now.
