And the award for the best foundation ever goes to…

I’ve been using the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24hr foundation for a while,finally got my hands on it! I believe I’m in a good position to give a review on it now

Lets get into it…

Lancome Says

“A 24-hour wear & comfort

Retouch-Free Makeup

Divine Perfection

SPF 15 Sunscreen”

“For All Skin types”

“Following 8 years of research, Lancôme unveils its first 24h wear foundation for lasting perfection. With its new EternalSoft technology, Teint Idole Ultra 24h defeats all challenges. Complexion stays perfectly flawless and unified. Never cakey.”

24hr Divine Comfort

“In perfect affinity with the skin. Teint Idole Ultra 24hr is irresistibly comfortable. Its new, blendable and fresh texture leaves the complexion perfectly smooth, velvety matte with no powdery effect.”

What I Say

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra is very pigmented, I love that its full coverage but still doesn’t feel heavy.It has a light texture so you have enough time to blend before it sets.The matte finish is beautiful! It gives my skin some type of dimension my face looks radiant.

 

Application

I prefare to use a damp beauty blender with this foundation,I used a real technique stippling brush and ended up using more product than I need. I have been using the LA girl orange corrector to cover my dark spots so that also reduces the amount of foundation I use  since I don’t go over my problem areas .

Shade

My color is 45O Suede (N) – N here is for people that have both warm and cool undertones, This shade is light for me  but I didn’t want to risk it oxidizing and getting darker, it doesn’t oxidize much tho’.

I always use a Black opal cream to powder foundation on the outline of my face, it balances everything out
