Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Review


When it comes to foundation I use it everyday. I've tried so many different "drug-store" foundations and recently I've started venturing into the high-end ones. Sometimes, it doesn't matter how you spend on a foundation it just doesn't work with your skin. Whether it breaks you out, oxidises throughout the day or clings onto dry patches, there's so many things that can go wrong. Today I've got a foundation that's done everything right for me.

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24hr is meant to be a long wearing foundation that offers more comfort than any other foundation. Promises like retouch-free, flawless look, velvety smooth and even complexion are all things I look for in a foundation so it's no surprise I wanted to give it a try. There's quite a wide range of shades available so it's quite good for pale skinned girls, like me.

This foundation looks so natural on. When people talk about a foundation that gives them a my-skin-but-better look, this is one of them. Being able to even out my skin tone without looking like I'm caked in makeup is so important and this achieves it. It's quite a thin, light consistency and it doesn't take long at all to blend out  then you're left with skin that feels like it can actually breathe. With that being said, this isn't a light coverage foundation. I'm able to cover up any blemishes or scarring with a little help from concealer. This could definitely pass as a medium cover foundation. 

For a high-end foundation, the packaging is quite good. The bottle is quite heavy glass which makes it feel good quality and it comes with a pump - woohoo! I hate when a foundation has no pump, you end up wasting product and generally just making a mess. This isn't an issue with the Teint Idole. 

It's passed my dry, sensitive skin test and a lovely little bonus is it smells great.

  1. Sounds like a foundation I need to try, good thing it has a pump!

  2. This sounds good. My biggest problem is finding dewy foundation. Even if foundation says it's dewy on my dry skin it looks so matt and dry.
