Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Compact Foundation Review

Sunday, October 2nd 2016 1

Available in 18 shades

Here's everything you need to know about the new Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation. Spoiler: it's one of the best foundations I have EVER used.

Level of coverage
Buildable. With one layer this offers a medium coverage, but you can build it easily to offer a full coverage. Luckily the formula is so sheer that even when you build this it doesn’t look heavy.

Finish
This dries to a velvet finish but offers lots of luminosity. I wouldn’t say dewy but I wouldn’t say matte either – this sits somewhere in between.

Longevity
Very impressive – this lasts through a long day with no need to powder the t-zone.

Techniques that you might need to know
Personally I’ve been using a Real Techniques buffing brush to work this into the skin instead of the provided cushion. The formula sits especially well when buffed in and creates a completely flawless finish.

You’ll like this if…  

– you don’t have time to touch up your make-up during the day

– you like a polished finish that isn’t too heavy

– you wear Estee Lauder Double Wear and want something slightly lighter in texture

– you wish to cover up redness

Avoid if…

I thought about this section for a little while and, genuinely, I can’t think of any reason why anyone should avoid this.

Products that work well with this 

Lancome have also released cushion blushers that work beautifully with this. They’re very cooling on application, perfect for anyone like me that gets flushed cheeks.

Everything else I need to tell you

This is one of the best foundations I’ve ever tried. It wears really well, it applies to give a flawless finish and doesn’t dry or cake on the skin as the day goes on. I absolutely love it. And the formula smells rosy, like an old fashioned lipstick. Do note that you buy the foundation pot and the refill separately.

If I had to describe this foundation in one sentence…

A velvety full coverage foundation that smells amazing and gives the skin a radiant finish.

This foundation costs £30.00 when you first purchase and then £19.50 for every refill thereafter.
