We love all things personalised, from engraved lipstick cases to custom-made scents with our names on the bottle. In a world of self-driving cars, drink-making robots and skincare products created from your actual DNA, it was about time science did its thing and created a technology to help us find the perfect foundation shade match. Thankfully, Lancôme came through for us with the ground-breaking Le Teint Particulier - a long wearing, fragrance-free foundation that matches your skin to a T - and it’s finally here in Dubai!
So, how does it work?
With a whopping 70,000 potential combinations, you'll first have to fill out a survey about your skin type (normal, combination, oily, dry or sensitive) and preferred coverage level (sheer, medium or full) to create the perfect base. Then, the Lancôme expert will scan three parts of your face using an algorithm to accurately measure your skin and get all the necessary stats. This will create a report that’ll let you know a few interesting details that you probably didn’t already, like whether you’re warm or cool-toned and how much red or yellow is in your skin.
The foundation is then prepared right in front of you, and in mere minutes you have your newly mixed, perfectly customised foundation. Hurrah! You’ll be given a unique complexion ID so you can refill your bottle easily once it runs out and don't have to repeat the whole process - even though we totally would.
