Lancôme Expands Innovative Custom Made Makeup Offering

A breakthrough technology that detects individual skin tones,
delivering a uniquely-blended and bespoke foundation to create a perfect
match, will soon be available at nine additional Nordstrom locations
across the country

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#LeTeintParticulier–Lancôme’s groundbreaking bespoke makeup experience, Le Teint
Particulier Custom Made Makeup
, is launching at nine new major
markets across the United States this month. Le Teint Particulier is
Lancôme’s most highly sophisticated and unique service in cosmetics,
changing the way the world experiences foundation by offering each woman
her very own custom blended formula.


Customers across California, Florida, Chicago, Washington and
Virginia/Washington, D.C. can now experience Le Teint Particulier and
its revolutionary technology used to detect individual skin tones. The
proprietary system creates a one-of-a-kind match, delivering a
highly-personalized, freshly blended foundation designed to emulate her
unique complexion.

LUXURY, ARTISTRY & TECHNOLOGY

The one-on-one consultation begins as a Lancôme Beauty Advisor scans a
client’s facial skin tone. The data is processed through a new,
state-of-the-art algorithm that measures skin tone with pinpoint
accuracy. From there, the formula is blended right at the counter and
her Complexion ID is printed on the bottle for easy reference upon
refill for the perfect, personalized foundation.

To maintain color accuracy, the custom made machine is equipped with
eight peristaltic heart pumps for an airtight blending and dispensing
process. The technology is so innovative that it even allows for
customized coverage: full, medium or sheer. Moreover, the formula
provides up to 24-hour hydration and can be enhanced with an additional
moisturizer on an individual basis.

The game-changing Le Teint Particulier formula is infused with
micro-fill technology, the foundation feels weightless and contains
high-impact pigments that glide on easily to flatter and hydrate all
skin types. Shades are meticulously created to reflect cool, warm or
neutral undertones and provide a flawless finish for the ideal texture,
fluidity, coverage level with a natural finish that remains virtually
undetectable. The long-wearing, breathable formula is oil-free,
fragrance-free, safe for sensitive complexions and won’t clog pores,
leaving skin with a translucent radiance and a smooth, truly flawless
natural glow.

“We’re thrilled to expand this personalized makeup innovation to
additional markets across the country,” says Suriya Parksuwan, President
of Lancôme USA. “Over the past few years, Lancôme has had great success
in offering extensive shade selections to women of all skin tones. With
the new customized foundation – developed with extensive research in
skin tone emulation – Lancôme is offering custom matching for all
clients. The result is the epitome of luxury and personal service:
made-to-measure makeup.”

Price: $80 for 0.7 oz. Custom Made Makeup.
