The beauty industry is booming as makeup addicts like myself are real suckers for new releases. I couldn’t pass on this Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear when I was makeup shopping the other day. It was such a popular and much raved about foundation of 2018 that I had to put it to the test myself.
Now guys I hope you appreciate my sacrifice as I have three bottles of other foundation at home waiting to be finished and this purchase is truly for the sake of this review! 😉
Lets dive in!
Unlock the secret to a perfectly flawless, ultra long-wearing canvas and forgo the need for touch-ups with this oil free, 24 hour wear liquid foundation.
Developed with the notion of lasting perfection in mind, this hard-working formulation took 8 years of meticulous research to achieve the perfect final product. Formulated with Eternal Soft technology, this oil-free foundation resists all external factors to keep complexion looking fresh and shine-free for up to 24 hours without the need to touch-up. Delivers a blendable, natural-looking full coverage with a velvet matte finish for an ultra flawless effect.
Formula: The formula looks thick initially but thins out significantly once you start to spread it out with your fingers or a makeup brush. Additionally it doesn’t feel heavy or thick on the skin at all, making it a comfortable all day foundation (not that you’ll wear it all day).
It can settle in fine lines and on dry skin so much sure you layer it and skin preparation is absolutely vital!
Shades: There is such a wide range of shade with this foundation you’ll surely find one that suits your skin tone! 🙂
Coverage: Medium. This foundation isn’t exactly full coverage but it covers just enough to even out your skin tone giving you a naturally radiant and healthy look.
Scent: HEAVENLY. I absolutely love the scent! It smells so luxurious but chic and sophisticated at the same time. The scent reminds my of the Prada and Chanel perfume my mother loves. My morning foundation routine is not also a mini aromatherapy session!
Oxidisation: Terrible. Unfortunately this foundation oxidises a lot. My 005- Beige Ivoire shade oxidises in minutes to a deeper orange tone shade. Fortunately for me however, this isn’t too bad of a shade and I can get away with it.
Longevity: 8+ hours. I’ve only tested this foundation for a full 8 hours but so far so good. The foundation settles nicely on my oily skin and also absorbs some of my facial oils leaving me with a healthy radiant glow.
Price: $60 AUD. This is your standard price for a Lancome foundation.
