Review: Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear


The Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear foundation promises long lasting, full coverage without the cake. Lancome recently hooked me up with this newbie and I've been putting it through its paces for the past month. I'm glad I did...because I love it.

Now when I say this is a new foundation, that is not quite accurate. It is Lancome's loved Teint Idole Ultra 24H, with an updated formula and an impressive 40 shade offering.

Starting with application, the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation (£30.00 / $47.00 Sephora) has a creamy liquid consistency that glides onto the skin effortlessly. It doesn't drag or pull on the skin and covers my entire face and neck quickly and evenly without any issues. The foundation works well with both sponges and brushes, however I tend to apply it with my fingers because I'm a little old school.

As promised, the Teint Idole Ultra Wear's pigment is strong and the coverage full, so I can get away with one layer... a dream in my opinion, as the quicker my makeup routine is, the fucking better. I can also achieve the full porcelain doll look with this beauté, as it builds well without any cakiness. No matter how many layers I apply, the foundation provides an even, beautiful demi-matte finish. It also has some serious lasting power, keeping me covered throughout the day.


When it comes to its skin-matching abilities, the Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation is a force to be reckoned with. Having a skintone that falls somewhere between pink and yellow, it is often impossible to find a foundation with a suitable shade for my skin - however my 011 Beige Cristallin suited me perfectly. I've also heard the same feedback from other friends with skintones ranging from very pale to very dark. In an industry full of 12-24 shade foundation ranges, it's very refreshing to see one with such a big offering.


I absolutely love this foundation as it is the perfect all rounder for all skintones and skin types. My favourite foundation is the YSL Touche Eclat and the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear is, by far, its strongest contender yet.
