I used the 14 hours teint idole for years and then they switched the formula to the 24 hour one. Anyways I'm glad I first got a sample before buying the whole thing as it is about $45 for 1 oz.
The foundation made my pores look gigantic and my face really greasy, the foundation looked really thick like I was wearing a mask on my face. Also lasts about an hour before my face gets greasy and the foundation starts sliding off.
I will not be buying this product.
I, like others, wanted to love this makeup and had high hopes that it would not cause blemishes. I am so disappointed. My face after 3 days of wearing is just awful. And, no, nothing else is the reason and nothing has changed to cause this. Thank goodness this was a sample, and I would encourage anyone, especially those with sensitive or acne prone skin to get a sample first. I will say that it has nice texture and did last a long time, but that doesn't really matter with the number of blemishes from which I am now recovering
This make up is AHHHMAZING. I have combination skin, AND I live in Texas. This lasts forever. It rivals my favorite, the Revlon colorstay, which is tempting to go back to since this is so $$$. but I really like this foundation cause I feel like I barely put anything on and it covers everything without making it seem like I have makeup on! I use a bit of concealer here and there but I really don't need it with this. I was expecting to hate it because I had just returned a Bobbi Brown I hated...but I totally fell in love. And the fact that they have "neutrals" not just warm or cool. Makes me look like I got great skin and trust me I don't lol. Lasts ~6 hours for me in heat and all day for just inside and going out and stuff. I do use this with some primer and I moisturize. Good stuff, definitely buying again. The difference between this and Colorstay is that Colorstay is thicker and it is hard to take off (intentionally) and it really doesn't feel natural when you touch it. It's like..sticky. This makeup however is really thin, almost feels like water BUT it has the same or better coverage. Amazing.
My new HG! This foundation is amazing. It is expensive ($44) but I figure my skin is worth it.
I have noticeable pores on my cheeks and parts of my nose, but the foundation covers them beautifully. When I am breaking out, it covers the blemishes. I can't say enough good things about this stuff!
this foundation is one of my top favorites. i have dry combination skin that deals with dehydration, dullness, flakiness overall and some large pores and oiliness in the center of my face.
this foundation performs really well on me. longevity is very accountable. i reach of it usually whenever i need a more heavy duty foundation. however, it does not feel heavy. it actually very lightweight and starts off looking slightly satiny-skin-like. i set it with chanel universal loose powder and it does stay all day. looks really natural on me and the finish does stay silky smooth all day.
it is very all-rounded well-performing foundation that quickly becomes one of my trusty foundations.
I recently picked up a sample of this, my first Lancome foundation. I am NC44 in MAC and was matched to 450 Suede(N) in this. In the store this looked ok (of course), but now that I am wearing it on my own I don't like the color on me. I live in a hot and humid climate and this did transfer on me some as well. That much alone is a dealbreaker for me for a foundation this expensive that touts having staying power.
One word. HG! This is what I have been looking for. In mac I am around nc50. In this iam shade number 10, beige praline in the European versions. I have always struggled to find a foundation that suits my skin tone and doesn't oxidise. This is it. No 10 suits my skin tone and undertone exactly. It doesn't feel like I'm wearing a mask and looks like skin. I tried it without setting it once and it was still perfect after an 8 hour day of work. Can't say much about 24 hrs because I never wear foundation that long. Doesn't oxidise like the mac foundations and the finish is absolutely beautiful and flawless. It has a bit of a scent to it buy it goes away when it dries. It's really easy to apply as it doesn't dry immediately like other foundations which last as long. Will buy again and again. Hope this never goes away!!!
Love this foundation! Still my HG, don't think its going to get any better than this one.
(first of all sorry if my English isn't great, I'm italian!) I've tried this foundation together with many others in the last few years, since I've been suffering from bad hormonal breakouts and really needed quite a high coverage... generally, I liked it. I think I'll be repurchasing it, and that's saying something, since it is really expensive!
*Long lasting: I've never honestly tried to wear it for 24 hours but I do wear for 10-12 hours... it still looks decent in the end, better than most foundations I've tried. It's also no- transfer
*Oil control: I've never found a foundation that keeps my VERY oily skin from looking shiny or greasy after a few hours, but still this foundation works better than others (and it didn't break me out)
*I know this is personal, but color match: Especially in Italy it's hard to find light colors with a pink undertone, but shade 02 of this foundation matches my skin tone really well!!
*Coverage: medium to high. Considering that it's not too hard to blend and that it looks very natural once applied (maybe it's due to the perfect color match but it REALLY looks good on my skin), I think that the coverage is very good.
- Packaging: I travel a lot and this glass packaging it's not practical at all
- Scent: this is very scented and it bothers me slightly, but someone might like that
- Again, oil control: not bad, but not my HG foundation. Anyway I think this works best for normal/combination/oily skin, not for dry skin
So, is it worth the price? It's probably a bit more long-lasting than some cheaper ones, gives a good coverage without looking like a mask (not every foundation can claim that)... That's enough for me to kind of like it, but I haven't stopped looking for my "perfect" foundation
Hope this was helpful!
I am using the magazine sample which actually is a decent match for me. The matte finish is not dry, and the coverage looks very natural. I did not blend it much into my neck and it actually looks way less masky than the other things I have. I had zero issues with this transferring, and actually found this to be better than other things I have. It feels like I am reading reviews for a totally different product when I see the negative reviews. I not touched up my dark circles at the end of the day. This lasted super well on me. I have acne but see a derm. I'd say my face is well balanced in terms of oil. UPDATE: I have a sample of this and on a sunny day I can see very pore in my face and my skin appears very crepey. On the plus side, the coverage and wear is still great. I am going to try to get this in a closer color match then judge from there. I used this over a Revlon primer. I will be sad if I am simply too old for a matte foundation at this stage of my life.
I have oily-combo skin, my matches are MAC NC35-37, NARS Stromboli, MUFE HD 128, Revlon Colostay Whipped Creme Warm Golden- medium, yellow, olive toned skin.
I was first matched with 330 Bisque N which is an pretty good match for me. The depth was right and it didn't oxidize on my skin. I got a generous sample and was able to get about a week and half of usage. It is lightweight but very pigmented. It did a good job at covering up most of my blemishes. The finish at first was matte but after it settled it left a demi-matte finish. It actually did not do a very good job at controlling oil- I had to do a few touch ups during the day. It blended into my skin easily and looked really good. It does last a long time but fades.
My small rant was when I went back to purchase this foundation- the SA claimed that the shade 330 Bisque N did not exist and rematched me to 410 Bisque W. It actually looked good at first- it is very yellow toned but it oxidized a little too orange and dark for me. I am guessing whatever is in their Warm toned foundations shifts orange on me and maybe that is why Neutral worked out best. I decided to just return the foundation but will reconsider it in the future for the correct shade. Overall, it's a very good foundation- just on the pricier side.
