We Tried Lancôme's Custom Foundation, and It Was Even Better Than We Expected
At Lancôme’s New York office, Jasmine Ferreira, director of education and artistry, did a deep dive into my foundation history—how often I want to wear it, what I like and dislike, and whether I prefer sheer, medium, or full coverage. Then, with a small device, she scanned three areas on my face and one on my neck to determine my “median shade.” The skin scanner sent the data to a computer, which used an algorithm to come up with my personal mix of pigments. Then an ingenious machine dispensed precise amounts of color into a bottle to be thoroughly blended. The finished product was labeled with my personal pigment ID number to make refills a breeze.
The custom formula blends into my complexion seamlessly. I never thought I’d say this, but I’ve met my perfect match.
