After much sampling, searching, and review-reading, I finally found my HG foundation. I have extremely oily, acne-scarred and acne-prone skin. This is the only foundation that controls my oil, stays matte, and doesn't turn dark by the end of the day. While the price is high for what you get, the product is worth every penny!
Can't believe how much I love this foundation! I'm a mineral make-up girl, and sometimes I stray with Bobbi Brown stick, or Natural Finish foundations. I tried this on a whim, and WOW! I can't believe I've lived this long without this stuff!
It's a thin/watery formula, but the coverage is great, because it seems to be highly pigmented. One of the main ingredients is denatured alcohol, however. That means that 1) it dries quickly and 2) even though I'm quite oily, I wonder how my skin will tolerate this in the dead of winter. Might not be the best for dry skinned girls, either.
I give my face a quick once-over with a small amount using my hands, and then buff it into my skin with the Sephora platinum collection air brush, stipling a little more product with the brush in areas where I need more coverage. (Chin and nose, mainly.) I finish it with a light dusting of BE mineral veil. Outstanding wear and no transference. I do have to blot halfway through the day, but not as often as with any other foundation that I have tried.
I wore this foundation for three days and decided that it was not worth the price. While I did like the matte finish that it gave my complexion and the lasting power, I was not a fan of the price and how small of an amount of product you get for it. There are tons of foundations out there that do come in a small bottle, but you only need a small amount to cover your entire face. I do not even like heavy coverage (I primarily only go with light and very rarely do I go with medium coverage), but I needed to use a lot of product to be satisfied with finish. There are tons of matte foundations out on the market that work just as well as this did, but that is actually worth the money spent. For reference, I am an NC42-44 in Mac and was matched to Bisque 9W.
I like how the foundation comes in with a squeeze tube, it makes it easier to control how much you want to use. However for only 0.08 oz, $32 bucks is kinda expensive. They could've at least made it 1 oz or had better packaging - like a plastic pump instead of a cheap squeeze bottle.
I bought this because I wanted to try a new foundation - something that is lightweight, oil - free, and does not break me out. I used to think my HG foundation was MUFE HD, but that made me look like an oil slick and broke me out. That is going to be returned..
I got a generous sample from Macy's a couple of months back. I was curious and decided to go out with it for a lazy sunday. The moment I applied it on, it ran very smoothly on my skin and was very lightweight.
It gave me light to medium coverage. Its not full, but there's nothing that a concealer cannot fix right? But its a very buildable coverage. For me it gave the just about the right amount of coverage. It surprisingly gives a bit more coverage than the MUFE HD. Its really safe for me to say, that I actually use less concealer with this foundation.
Lancome claims that Teint Idole Freshwear lasts for 18 hours, I wouldn't exactly agree with that, but I could say that it does last for a very long time. It lasted about 10 -12 hours for me.
As far as the oil control goes, it does control my very oily face a lot better than most foundations can. So sadly, my face doesn't really exactly work with Lancome's shine free promise. My face still produces a little bit of oil during the day and it becomes kinda dewey - not the gross kind though. And a little bit does transfer on to my blotting sheets.
But nonetheless, this is a great foundation to wear for the summer and those with oily, acne prone skin. Its light-weight, controls oil very well, and has pretty good coverage for something so light weight. I have been using for quite a while and it has not broken me out. This has become my favorite foundation. I will be repurchasing if I run out again. For reference, I am an NC 35 and I use Bisque 7w a tad bit darker than my skin, but has the right amount of undertones and blends well enough.
Love this! I have been wearing the regular Teint Idole Ultra for years, but sometimes, especially in the summer or on casual weekends, it is just to heavy. I had been going without foundation and just wearing concealer and MUFE HD powder. Got this one in the same shade I wear in the ultra, Ivory 2(C). The coverage is just as good as the ultra, and it dries to a nice satin matte finish. I may substitute it permanently for the ultra, I will have to see in winter. It wears like iron, even in the hot weather. My favorite thing about it is that it is very thin, and feels just like liquid pigment. It is not greasy in any way. I wear SPF 30 under it because I need more than SPF 15, and it still is not greasy. I would not say it is a tinted moisturizer, it is more like just the pigment from the ultra, without all the other ingredients.
I like this foundation, a lot.
especially because I'm oily in the T-zone.
Except the only reason that I don't like it is because my color is nonexistent.
The colors are either too light, too dark, or pink toned.
And I'm a fairly light Asian.
So, I love this product, but just not for me as it doesn't have my color.
Maybe if I get darker or lighter.
I Was given This as a birthday gift from my mother. (Sorry, I have to clearley state that I did not purchase this product, It was a gift) A few days before My birthday I went to a lancome counter and Was inquring about a blush. Before long It was an entire makeup fest! I fell in love with the coverage, Feeling and finish of this foundation. It feels so nautrual! One con is that you have to set it with a powder but if you use a fan brush it still looks nautrual. I never wear foundation, only tinted moisturiser but this has turned me over to the dark side....Lol. I don't wear this every day because Some days I give my face a break from cosmetics (once a week) And I find that this does not break me out. I have sensitive, dry combo skin I do not break out often and have not yet found a product drugstore or high end that does break me out. I really like this foundation and Will probably buy again after I run out unless I find a Drugstore one that works Just as well.
Wow, I have not fallen head over heels for a foundation in a very long time. Truthfully, I hate the look of a foundation so much so that I have skipped it altogether lately in favor of a simple dusting of powder prior to the rest of my makeup routine. The problem with this? I am so oily that after about an hour, I no longer look polished.
Having said all of this, and having tried a ton of HE and DS foundations, I am crazy about this one! The coverage is medium (which I love- not too heavy) and it leaves my skin looking flawless. The greatest part is that my foundation does not look like a mask, but rather very fresh and youthful. Does it provide 18 hours of shine-free coverage...well, no. But, then again, I am verrrrry oily. I'd say I get maybe 5-6 of a shine-free face with perhaps a blot paper or two in between.
If you are oily, if you don't like your foundation to look too heavy, and if you don't want to pay an arm and a leg (I'd say $32 is pretty reasonable these days)...I would give Teint Idole Fresh Wear a try!
I normally use Teint Idole Ultra, but I spotted this new product at the Lancome counter and figured I'd give it a try. I was given a small sample to try, and the sample lasted me over 2 weeks, which is a testament to how great the value is on this foundation (a little bit goes a long way!). I enjoyed the sample, so I bought a full tube. It's an awesome summer alternative to my normal foundation. It's lightweight and absorbs in quickly with easy application. It has a medium coverage that is sort of build-able, and an SPF to protect from UV damage. I do find the packaging a little messy. Since the consistency of the foundation is quite thin, I find it easy to accidentally dispense too much from the squeeze tube. But that's my only gripe, and I'll definitely repurchase this foundation next summer.
