Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Foundation Review

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H wear foundation is one of Lancôme’s bestselling foundation. The 40 shades strong range promises a perfected complexion with all day wear comfort. It offers full coverage without the cakey feeling, resistance to transferring and smudging.  It is also retouch free.

I have had this foundation for a while but I don’t wear it often because I have my ‘winter shade’ so it’s really limited to fall/ winter wear. I could probably get another shade however I really like the undertone of the shade I have (shade 12) which is very golden and yellow and it looks amazing on my skin.

The Teint Idole is a medium thick foundation in terms of consistency but it feels very lightweight on the skin. It blends very well with a dense buffing brush ( think Real techniques buffing brush) but I prefer to use my Kiko stippling brush which gives it an airbrush finish. The finish of the foundation is a satin: it’s not too matte and it’s not dewy. I think it’s a medium to full coverage foundation and it’s easily built to full coverage. Shade 12 has the perfect golden/yellow undertone which is my undertone so this looks really good on my skin. I can say it’s probably the best undertone matching foundation I have even though the shade is not quite right. The foundation wears extremely well through the day and it doesn’t oxidise which is a huge advantage! It stays true to colour all day, it doesn’t dry down to a different colour.

When I am asked to recommend a foundation it’s always between this and a NARS foundation. Lancôme Teint Idole is worth the money and worth the hype! It does sometimes separate around my smile lines but this is when I haven’t set that area properly with powder and this happens after hours of wear and talking/eating/laughing etc. I have not had issues with it separating around my noses and chin area. I have normal to combination oily skin and this foundation works well for my oily skin. Yes, I need to powder tzone after some hours but this is the same for any foundation I wear. In terms of being transfer resistant, I don’t think it is and its the same with any other foundation ( I don’t know why brands keep making this claim), it is resistant( a bit) to smudging because it doesn’t move around on the face.

An absolute beautiful medium coverage foundation and there are enough shades and undertones to go round! I have been wearing this foundation all month and I honestly forgot how much I loved it! I reviewed the ‘sister’ foundation, Lancôme Teint Miracle last month! Make sure you check out that post and the difference between the two foundations. I have the foundation on in the picture below. BTW I was totally in love with the Seraiah dress from AnkaraHouse (ad) see my collab with the designer in a previous post here

Lancôme Teint Idole Foundation is £32 available from Boots*

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?)
