I’ve been wanting to try this foundation for such a long time but somehow it always slips my mind when I’m in store to purchase it. The reason why I actually purchased it this time because I was made aware of the discount I would receive on Lancome foundations and that’s when I spotted this baby and knew I had to finally give it a whirl.
As per the website:
An oil free, longwearing, natural matte foundation that creates a velvety-smooth complexion for up to 24 hours. Available in 45 medium to full coverage, buildable shades.
This foundation was made for those ultra-long days that you do not have the time to retouch your makeup. Formulated with color-true NAI pigments, it maintains your skin’s pH level so that color stays put all day long, without caking or creasing. Plus, it’s infused with perlite and silica to ensure that excessive oils are absorbed, leaving behind a shine-free velvety matte complexion.
It took the Lancôme labs 8 years of research to develop this expert formula. The scientists wanted to ensure that they could accurately encapsulate the diversity of skin tones throughout the world and ensure a true-to-life match. As a result, we are proud to say that anyone can find their perfect match with Teint Idole Ultra Wear.
Lancôme’s Teint Idole Ultra 24H liquid foundation is in the Guinness Book of World Records for The Most People Matched With Foundation in 8 Hours.
Available in 45 shades. Contains 30ml/ 1 fl.oz of product. Medium to full coverage.
The packaging is in a frosted glass container with a pump. I do love all Lancôme’s packaging as their style is unique and classy.
I wasn’t sure on their shade range or how it works therefore one of the sales assistant’s color matched me. I must add she did an exceptional job as this matches my complexion extremely well. We chose the shade 045 Sable Beige.
The formula is quite thick and I only applied two pumps for my entire face. It does state that it’s medium to full coverage but I enjoy more of a medium coverage foundation. I blended this out with a damp beauty sponge and it blends and seeps into the skin very well.
The finish is matte but not flat or drying. If you do have dry skin like myself I would recommend using a hydrating primer and dewy setting spray as this would cling onto dry patches.
I wore this for an entire night and was pleased to not have to touch up at all which that claim is very true. It’s definitely a long lasting foundation, combined with my concealer and powders it all meshed into the skin well.
Overall this is a foundation I would most likely wear if I know I don’t want to be touching up during the day or night, or if I want my makeup to last for an extended period of time. I would also wear this foundation in the warmer months as it a matte foundation and I have very dry skin especially during winter and autumn.
I would recommend this foundation.
I purchased mine at Woolworths Beauty.
Have you tried this foundation? What are your thoughts.
