Somehow I had gotten away from Lucidity in "my" shade for several years, but retried it. It has good coverage while looking very natural. The light-reflecting quality does make me look younger. Also, while I am fair, 'vanilla beige' has enough pink in tone to match my Celtic ethnicity, something often missing in light shades.
I really like the way this product makes my skin look & lasts all day. I recommend Only using a small amount. The first time I used it I went over board & didn't look great. I am not crazy about the smell but you can't smell it once it dries. Based on the small amount needed it will last a long time. I received the Lilly Pullitzer gift with this purchase & love it, but I find the eyeshadow hard to open.
I am 50 years old, with pale, splotchy skin with a tendency towards dryness. Lucidity has been the best foundation for my skin type, giving me the coverage I want without being too heavy or cakey looking. I have used this make up for years. I have tried a few others but always go back to Lucidity for it's natural looking coverage.
Perfect foundation for summer wear. It flowed well over my skin and with the light coverage, did a very nice concealment of my age marks, along with the added bonus of luminosity with the light. I enjoy wearing this make up foundation and using Estee Lauder's products.
First off I have to comment on the smell of this product. I've used lucidity powder for years and LOVE the fragrance of the powder but when I recently purchased the foundation I noticed it had a strange odor to it and realized it smelled like band-aids! Yes BAND-AIDS.
My only other gripe with this make up is that when going through the online foundation finder, it does not show up in any of the searches I did (despite changing my answers for skin type, coloring etc) each time. It would be helpful if estee lauder would make a tiny card with some foundation samples so that we can order our correct shade. If they do, I'd order without hesitation all the time.
Other than those 2 issues, I find that the make up leaves a beautiful finish and covers nicely without feeling like you're wearing any make up.
I have used this foundation for many years. It is light and not heavy. My skin is smooth so I just need coverage for uneven skintone and dark spots. I have at times tried other foundations and always come back to this one!
I tried the Lucidity and ordered a shade that is a little too dark for me right now in the winter months, so I'm going to save it for summer use. It's a delightful makeup. Goes on very easily. Has a finish that is in-between a dewy look and a mat look that is OK for me. Being over 65, I do prefer the dewy look so my favorite is the Country Mist foundation -- but this foundation is a good "runner-up". I do wish there was a shade with a "pink" undertone in the Lucidty. I don't like "yellow" or "orange" undertones on my skin coloring. Country Mist has true "pink" undertones, that's why I like it so much - plus the dewy look, makes Country Mist the winner for me.
I have pale skin with pink undertones and have been wearing Lucidity in Pale Ivory for around 8 years now. I LOVE it! I have combination skin so I was not sure how this would work for me, but it has been a trooper for 8 years. The color blends well into my pale skin and the coverage is adjustable. If my skin is more broke out then I can apply a little heavier, but if my skin is cooperating and looks pretty good then I can just apply a light veil of foundation. Either way it makes my skin GLOW and the coverage lasts all day. I often receive compliments on my skin - I know it is the foundation. I will use this product as long as EL provides it - which I hope will be a long time!
I have been wearing Lucidity Foundation since it hit the retail market. It is not oil-free (which is great for me) and gives my skin a lovely and natural luminosity. I used to wear the shade "Natural Linen" (2W1) - then it was discontinued. I sampled/purchased many other foundations, trying to find one similar to Lucidity. NO LUCK. Finally,I went back to my favorite EL counter and was color-matched. I now wear Lucidity in "Ivory Beige" (2N1) and it is perfect! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Lucidity. Hope that EL never discontinues this formula. TEN STARS from me!!!!!!!!!!
I may try new products but I will always come back to this one as my favorite. I use 2N1 and it blends effortlessly using just fingertips. If feels light and looks natural. Looks great around the eyes.
