Lancome | Teint Idole Ultra 24h | Foundation

It has been a long time since i decided to buy a high end foundation but recently went to the Lancôme conter in Boots to have a look for something different. The lady on the counter recommended this particular one as it was one of their best sellers. I wanted something with a matte finish and after she had applied this on my skin i was in love with it. This is a long lasting foundation which gives you an even flawless complexion with a smooth velvety finish.
I only use a small amount
Left: With foundation | Right: Without foundation
I only use a small amount of this foundation, you really don't need a lot. In the photo above you can see on the left side of my face, i have applied only the foundation (no concealer or powder) Hopefully from the photo you can see the difference to the right side which is completely bare.

It applies on the skin so nicely, it has a really soft texture to it and it smells really nice too. The only way to describe the smell is similar to sun tan lotion so it makes me think of summer and holidays :-) (with a hint of a perfume scent to it as well)
I got this in one shade darker than my skin. I was told that when looking for a foundation it's always best to go one shade darker then your natural skin colour as it gives you a healthy colour but still matches your skin and i think this shade suits my skin really well.

In the photo below i have applied the foundation all over my face, this is not using any other products but just the foundation. It makes my skin look very smooth and almost like I'm not wearing anything on my face.

I then completed my makeup for the rest of the day to show you what it looks like on the skin after the full face is done. I added a tiny bit of concealer, powder, blusher and a tiny bit of bronzer over the top.

  • The shape and look of the bottle is very nice, it's simple and i like the frosted glass look
  • I really love the smell
  • I like that i don't need to use a lot of the product so it should hopefully last a long time
  • It makes my skin look soft and smooth with a natural glow
  • As it is a pump foundation it might be harder to get any last traces of the product out 
  • From the picture below it seems to leak from the pump and i haven't laid it down, i have it standing up on my desk every day so that is a little annoying

This foundation does seem to last really well on the skin. Below i have added a few photo's when i got home from an 8 hour shift at work. I work on reception and it was a busy shift, i didn't top up any makeup through the evening and i also ride my bike 20 minutes to and from work. The foundation still sits well on my skin. The one thing i might need to change though is my concealer as my spots are showing a lot more after my shift...annoying chin spot that just won't disappear at the moment!
