Lancome - Teint Idole Ultra 24H - Foundation18:49
I was in the market for a new foundation a few weeks ago, I decided to head to the Lancome counter as id had a sample of this particular foundation before which I really liked. I spoke briefly to to the sales advisor, parted with my £27 and off I went.
I don't really rate this foundation the second time around. Its in the lightest shade (0005) as I'm pale, previously when I tried this I loved the colour match, now it really does very little for me in terms of being a great colour match and requires me to blend it quite a bit to achive an even look.
I would say it has a medium buildable coverage, which Is ideal for me because sometimes I don't want a heavy coverage but sometimes I do need that option so I think being able to build up the product easily is good. Shown above is 'one pump' of the foudation and I usually use between one and a half and two pumps.
The consistency is smooth and slightly dewy in finish, it doesnt dry out my skin or aggrivate it in any way. It does have a really great lasting coverage too. I don't personally use this with a primer but Ive found it to last very well anyway!
The bottle is nice, its a solid and heavy glass bottle with a semi-sheer black plastic lid. It feels like a nice product from the packaging.
This product has quite a strong scent, if you dont like heavily purfumed products, perhaps its best to steer clear although I don't think its overpowering.
