This Lancome custom-made foundation is exclusive at Harrods, it’s the only one in Europe! I jumped at the chance of creating my own custom foundation as I always struggle to find my ‘perfect’ shade, they also had 10% off on the day which was a bonus!
First of all you identify your skin type, dry/normal/oily. Personally i’m normal, I get oily and dry patches. Then you say whether you want a light/medium/full coverage foundation, I went for medium because it’s extremely buildable.
Afterwards, they scan your skin in 3 different areas in order to create your exact shade. The whole process is so interesting, it’s amazing seeing how it’s done right in front of you. They then test the shade and make sure it’s what you want before filling the bottle. The whole process is so much quicker than I expected! I was in and out in half an hour, coming out of Harrods with my personal foundation.
I can now say, this is my perfect foundation. It was literally made for me. I’m so happy with the result and I love the personal touch with having my name on the bottle. If I want the exact foundation again, I can order it using my unique code and it’ll be my perfect shade again.
It retails at £85 which is quite expensive, but I’ve been mixing 2 £35 foundations in order to get my skin tone. So an extra £15 for my ideal match without the added hassle of mixing two is something I’m more than happy to pay. I’d definitely recommend it to everyone, so happy with the result!! 🙂
