Two posts in one week?! Yes! I’ve only posted once this month and that’s sad because I’ve had these posts saved for weeks! This is my first review and I am pretty excited about it. As you can tell by the title, I’ll be talking about Lancome Teint Idole 24 hour foundation. This was my second high end foundation purchase. I purchased the Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo foundation but the color wasn’t quiet right. So I used Sephora’s Color IQ matching system and I was matched to Lancôme.
But of course It wasn’t the perfect match. I was matched to 460 C….it was horrible. I put it on for Barrister’s Ball aka Law School prom and my face was three shades lighter than my neck! I would post a picture but its too embarrassing lol. I exchanged it for 470 Suede C, one of the newest shades and its a perfect match!
I’ve been using it for quite some time now. I don’t us it too often since its so expensive, I want it to last as long as possible. All in all I have nothing bad to say!
-Comes in 36 shades
-Medium to full coverage
-Fragrance and oil free
-Has SPF 15
-The bottle comes with a pump
How I wear it:
I always start off with clean, moisturized skin, then I add primer. Usually two pumps of foundation will do. I warm up the foundation on the back of my hand first, then I put small dot all over my face. I apply it with my beauty blender or flat top kabuki brush, whichever is clean at the moment. I continue on my with the rest of my usual makeup routine. I don’t have to work around the color too much because its the perfect match.
Here are a couple pictures of me wearing the foundation in different lighting.
Lighting: natural light around noon.
Lighting: my standing lamp at night.
Thanks for stopping by!
