Being Photogenic

My Favourite Compact Foundation:


Lancôme PHOTÔGENIC Lumessence Compact
Light-Mastering & Smoothing Compact Foundation
Continuous Moist Sensation—SPF 15/ PA++

Product Description:
Lancôme’s original PHOTONIQUE NETWORK masters the light:
It controls the outer light to produce corrected pure radiance from within and reflects and diffuses it for a long lasting luminous perfection
Its silky-smooth micro-fine powdery texture fits the skin to instantly cover pores & imperfections.
Hour after hour, Lancôme’s original AQUA-CATCH COMPLEX boosts and locks internal moist sensation of skin’s upper layer, lasting for 12 hours.
Your skin feels moisturized from within, with beautiful radiance.
Shades and texture designed for Asian skins. Won't cake. Won't settle into lines. Won't clog pores. Ideal for all skin types.Oil-Free. Fragrance-free. Non-Comedogenic. Dermatologist-tested.

My verdict:
A low maintenance makeup essential. For the gal who does not want to spend too much time powdering her face, this foundation doesn’t need you to reapply throughout the day. It gives a nice flawless complexion and is naturally sheer without the ‘your face will crack if I hit it’ effect.
It comes with additional SPF 15 protection (something that I like) and makes my face dewy yet matte looking. It’s extremely convenient and it takes only a couple of minutes to swipe it onto my face.

Downside:
Better to be worn on good skin days. It gives light medium to sheer coverage.
Expensive: $60 for the refill and empty compact case is sold separately at around $20 ++. The new compact case is silver/ white in colour. Mine’s from the previous generation. I think Lancôme may be changing the packaging soon, from the pictures from its website. Oh well…

Yep, I think your smooth flawless skin just need a sweep of loose powder. Lucky girl!
True. So expensive, so, it's better not to use daily. I can so hear the ka-ching of beauty counters ringing unendlessly.

Thanks for liking this column. It's a pleasure to write about products!
