I'll start with the positives, good color match, lightweight feeling, matte finish, and love the pump on the bottle. Negative: it dries my face OUT! I have oily skin, and have NEVER had to use moisturizer until i started using this foundation. It also does not have the staying power it advertises. It looks good for 5 hours, maybe. Def not a longwear. MAC studio fix fluid is so far my HG for a special event, now that'll give you flawless looking skin that can withstand a sweaty night at a club, but you might breakout a bit the next day. I might like this foundation in the summer, too drying for winter. I don't think its worth the money,

I was furious when Lancome discontinued the wonderful foundation I'd used for years (Maq-Eclat, or something like that). I went to a Lancome counter at Macys, and was told that Color ID was the replacement product, which was completely untrue. I bought that horrible stuff, and it slid right off my face! I contacted Lancome's corporate office with a complaint, and the customer service rep I was forwarded to suggested Teint Idole Ultra. I have used it ever since. It's light, and it stays on my mature, combination skin without traveling into wrinkles or pores. The color stays true all day. The coverage is sheer, but can be increased with tinted powder applied on top. If any shine comes up during the day, just blot with blotting papers and you're good to go. A plus for my acne-prone skin is the pump bottle, which keeps the foundation bacteria-free. I pump it onto a fresh make-up sponge. One dab will do 'ya. It spreads well, and a bottle lasts a long time.

Finally, an oil-free foundation with a soft finish! I used to use Clinique's superbalanced foundation. I like Tient Idole Ultra because the shades are extremely true to skin tones and the finish is soft and delicate. I have fairly oily skin and while this foundation does not absorb oil (you'd need a mattifying powder for that) it does not look greasy at the end of the day.

This is a great foundation for my moderately acne prone, combination skin. The texture is light, spreads well, and does not feel sticky on your face after application. I am Asian with light-medium skin tone, and I'm able to find my color in the wide ranges of colors they offer.

While it is definitely more expensive than drug store brands, I'm able to find it for < $25 on ebay (no it is not fake). As much as I love LM's Oil-Free Foundation, I just can't find it for < $35 anywhere. This foundation is a great subsitute.

One minor complain is that 14-hours is over exaggerated. My blemishes start to show a bit after maybe 5-6 hours, with most of the foundation giving me the look of even-toned skin stays put for at least 10 hours I would say.

Also it does have a bit of alcohol, so you may want to reconsider if you have very sensitive skin.

This foundation gives a light coverage and does NOT stay on for 14 hours.
It has a lovely colour range, and I'm sure you will be able to find a suitable shade for your skin tone.
It does not work too well on drier areas or acne as it flakes. This was my first high end foundation when I was 15, I still use it, but am seriously considering getting something more suitable for dry skin and good acne coverage.

I'm so happy with this foundation. I am 40, with fair-medium skin - and oily, especially in the t-zone...some visible pores across the bridge of nose, and fine lines around eyes. I like that I can apply this different ways to obtain whatever coverage I feel I need that day. Some days I use a dry stippling brush for more coverage, and when I feel I need less, I use a damp cosmetic sponge. Both ways, I am pleased with the result, which is natural, smooth and even. 1 pump is more than sufficient for my entire face, so even though this is somewhat pricey, a little goes a long way.
I would and will buy this again.

I really, really like this foundation a lot! I have been looking for a foundation to replace my Chanel, which in my opinion was just too yellow. I am a pink with some warm undertones. I have extremely oily skin, even with this foundation, I have to blot several times. I was waffling between this foundation and LM Creme silk. I received a sample of the Creme silk and while I loved the coverage, it made me so greasy and oily an hour later. Lancome gave beautiful mat coverage that was as close to flawless, as I ever gotten from a foundation, without looking all made up. I realize now that I have been using foundations that were to sheer for my oily skin in an attempt to avoid that madeup look. I actually have received several compliments on my skin this past week and I just purchased this product on Tuesday. Great foundation!

Beautiful HQ foundation. This is one of the very few foundation that "perfectly" matches to my very tricky skin tone (Bisque-0). It glides like silk on the face, gives a great coverage--yet I can easily adjust the coverage level (from moderate to full). Its coverage is so good that I do not need a concealer when I use this foundation though the key is that this never gives any heavy, mask-like, made-up look, which is amazing. The result is very natural and lasts so long as Lancome claims. When I looked at myself in the mirror at the end of the day, I looked even better than how I looked in the morning right after application! (I personally like how the natural oil from the skin affects foundation as the time goes by--I think that's exactly how you assess the true power and effectiveness of any foundation) Great HQ product. It is definitely worth paying $38 for this wonderful foundation!
UPDATE #1: After few days+ of using this product, it turned out to be that I have a slight tingling, sort of stinging sensation on my skin whenever I use this foundation. And it turned out to be almost painful when I re-applied sunblock in the middle of the day over this foundation! I felt as if my face were burning. Recalling back, when I initially tried this product at the Lancome counter, I did not notice any strange sensation on my skin probably because the MA used the silicone base primer (La Base Pro) before applying foundation on my face. I am truly impressed with the superb performance of this foundation and I am dying to keep it--but, cannot take a risk of damaging my skin. Sigh. I am very sensitive to many cosmetic products and here goes again; hence, I had to take 2 stars off from my original perfect rating. However, I still highly recommend this awesome liquid foundation for those who do not have sensitive skin.
UPDATE #2: After having a very close look of all the skin care products I use prior to foundation application, I have found that the mixture of particular sunscreen I use daily (Banana Boat Ultra Defense in spf50) and the Teinte Idole ULTRA causes the burning sensation on my skin. The other sunscreen I use daily--Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion in spf30--did not cause any problem. How interesting! Living in the tropical climate, I have to use sunscreen daily regardless underneath makeup and need to re-apply during the day. As many of you know, the Banana Boat Ultra Defense is not designed specifically for the use for the face. But, as it is so light and does not even irritate my eyes, I developed a habit of mixing the Banana Boat and Eucerin sunscreen to apply on the face. This practice has never caused any problem with my makeup products until now. Now I am curious if the Lancome sunscreen would have the same issue or not!
