This long post has been overdue thanks to the overwhelming holiday schedule, I just couldn't fit this in with all the photos we had taken during my wonderful experience with the Lancome and Nordstrom team. About two months ago, I got invited to the Lancome launch party for their new product called Le Teint Particulier which was their first ever customizable foundation. It was held at the Downtown Seattle Nordstrom and the president of Lancome, Xavier Vey was there explaining the product and how the whole concept came about. They did a demonstration and the foundation looked amazing on the model. Unfortunately I was unable to give it a try at the time, so the reps at Lancome and Nordstrom Seattle went above and beyond to get an appointment setup just for me.
I got to meet up with the lovely Jenessa who was super sweet and did my whole foundation process while explaining to me step by step of the amazing technology that they use. First, she had to clean my whole face in order to get a proper scan of my complexion color for the foundation match. After we discussed on my skin type and what kind of coverage I was looking for. She scanned my lower cheeks with the scanner to get the most accurate color. And the computer was able to pickup exactly what color I would be, then she manually inputs my skin type and for a medium coverage. Once all the necessary info was inputted, the machine starts pumping and squirting in all the stuff to make my foundation. After that, the mixture gets shaken up in their mixer and ta-da! My own perfect Le Teint Particulier foundation has been made! :)
Jenessa also prints out my personalize label which has my complexion ID# and my name printed. So whenever I need to replenish it, I can just bring in my complexion ID# and they would be able to make me another bottle. How awesome is that? With the label printed, Jenessa then puts on the black gloves service to put together my bottle with a small presentation. You can tell how thrilled I was with the results! I was really amazed how well the foundation matched my complexion and the best part of it all, the foundation didn't need to be set with a powder. An extra step gone!
Thanks again to the amazing reps at Lancome and Nordstrom Seattle for letting me to try our their newest technology. The Downtown Nordstrom in Seattle is one of the only two in the world that has this machine to make Le Teint Particulier. :) So if you're in the area, definitely go check it out and give it a try! The foundation retails at $80.
