Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24HR

Finding the perfect foundation can be a little bit of a nightmare as everyone has different skin tones and skin types. When I'm foundation shopping, I always find that I'm between two of the lightest colours and that one makes me look like an oompa loompa and the other makes me look like a ghost. I can never win. Until now, my trusty foundation for the last few months has been Illamasqua Skin Base and in terms of coverage I would say it is one of the best foundations out there. However I find that the Illamasqua Skin Base can look a bit dull on my skin. It matches my skin colour perfectly, but it doesn't give me the radiant glow I desire. 

Last Saturday my Illamasqua Skin Base finally came to the end of it's bottle and I needed to find a new replacement. I searched through each House of Fraser beauty counter and found myself lost and confused. I've tried Clinique and it just didn't work for me, I've tried Clarins and found it to be too drying - I didn't know where to turn.

In the end I decided to try Lancome. I haven't tried Lancome foundations before, but I've heard so many great things about them. I also recently heard that they had brought out a new foundation and since the lady asked me if I wanted to try anything, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to experiment. An hour later, I left the store with two little samples of their moisturisers and the foundation I have been eager to try.

The Lancome Teint Idole Ultra is Lancome's first 24hour foundation that according to the website:"Gives you an even, flawless looking complexion. No need for touch ups." The foundation blends effortlessly on the skin and indeed creates a flawless looking complexion. The foundation offers buildable coverage and can be worn lighter during the day and heavier for special occasions. 

What I love the most about this product is that it gives me a radiant glow. The foundation has a slight yellowish tone which to be honest is probably a little bit off colour for my skin tone, but it adds warmth and a dewy finish. The colour looks impeccable and for the first time in a way, I feel like my skin has a healthy, youthful look. I don't believe products that claim to last 24Hours and unfortunately this does not last the whole night through, but it is really easy to touch up and comes in a glamorous bottle - for that reason, I will forgive the product.

Overall, I'm really happy that I bought the Lancome Teint Idole. Yet again, it isn't my Holy Grail foundation, but it's getting one step closer. My skin colour looks perfectly matched for once, I look healthy and my skin looks natural what more can I really ask for? Lancome seriously have impressed me.



  1. I think it looks gorgeous on your skin. I have never tried one of their foundations but I always hear positive things about them!

  2. I love a good Lancome foundation. I used to love their tinted moisturiser. Looks fab on you xx
