Sample Sachet Sunday - Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H - Review

Foundation is most definitely one of my 'things'. I love trying foundations and am forever on the look out for fabulous products that are going to make my skin look amazing and if it is without looking 'made up' then all the better...

One of my top foundations is Lancome's Teint Miracle so when I heard that Lancome had brought out a new foundation I popped along to a counter and took advantage of the offer of a 7 day trial sample.

Lancome says 

Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation

8 years of research to unveil a new idol:
A flawless looking, even complexion with a velvety-smooth, shine-free finish.
A new ultra-comfort texture that blends effortlessly.
24h retouch-free wear and comfort.

Suitable for all skin types


My thoughts 

I was matched with shade 01 - Beige Albatre which is actually a fantastic match for my skin. Teint Idole Ultra foundation smells heavily perfumed. The consistency of this liquid foundation is reasonably thick which makes it slightly stiffer than recent foundations I have tried and reviewed. The finish true to its word is velvety matte and coverage is medium and I find I need to add to areas that require it (for me this is the rosacea on my cheeks) to feel happy.

However, unfortunately this foundation really doesn't work for me.  On immediate application this looked really nice, even and flawless but after about half an hour it began to take a turn for the worse.Yes it is long lasting (in areas) but it clings and reveals dry patches I didn't even know existed! Also it is patchy on my nose and sits in the pores to only accentuate them, which is a big no no obviously. I found it hard to blend evenly. Sadly I was really disappointed by this foundation. From afar it looks OK but close up it was not a nice picture.

I wonder if this would be better for people with oily skins as it really didn't agree with my combination skin.

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation is available in 18 shades and costs £27 for 30ml

    I also have combination skin .... actually found this foundation looked too heavy.
    I'm sticking with Clarins! :)
