Finding your perfect shade in a foundation can often feel like one of life’s great mysteries. Swatching samples in a fluorescent beauty hall can not only be overwhelming but also leave you taking home a color that is a few shades too light – or dark. In steps Lancôme. Already leaders when it comes to foundation, the brand who already offers over 130 different shades is taking things one step further. Introducing Le Teint Particulier. In just 20 minutes Lancôme promises to match your shade perfectly with over 72,000 different variations.
Arriving in the Middle East, Harvey Nichols Dubai in Mall of the Emirates is the first to showcase this unique technology. With the entire process taking just twenty minutes, it begins with you sitting down at the counter and a beauty advisor scanning three areas of your skin. Your shade is then created working with the precise balance of pigments in your skin. The technology also picks up your skin type adapting the level of moisture replenishment each client requires. The coverage from light to medium and heavy can then be chosen depending on each of the individual’s taste.
Just like in a factory you can watch the process unravel in front of you. Even halfway through the mixing stage, you can test the color ensuring it matches your skin. This gives those who prefer foundation a few shades darker to their natural tone to add a slightly deeper hue to the mix without going overboard. A silky formulation, each foundation regardless of the coverage blends seamlessly onto the skin. Each client also receives their very own bespoke label featuring their name and personal shade number, which can be used as a reference for when they want a refill.
