Although a little pricey, this lancome foundation is so worth it. I have dry skin, and it leaves my face looking fresh and beautiful.
I love this foundation! it isnt my HG though, I love trying new products on my skin! I dont have acne, or any blemishes so I dont really "need" full coverage BUT I love my face to look entirely flawless, so I always buy full coverage foundations and this is just incredible! It sets in your skin looking natural but fully covered every discoloration or blemish or anything you have! (tired on several friends of mine) it oxides throughout the day but its not too bad and you dont look cakey at all! (this and mac studio fix are my top 2, still in search of number 1 but they top all the others!) LOVE LOVE LOVE... im on my 3rd bottle now! i believe im 275 somewhere in that range lol pretty light skinned..
This is a foundation I wouldn't typically go for - gives a matte finish and holds up for 24h, Due to so many good reviews and upon trying the Teint Miracle and enjoying it I thought that I'd try something new (I'm more of a Clinique Even Better and NARS Sheer Glow type). I'll start off with the finish, it is definitely matte but for sure not the 'I'm ashy and don't drink water' matte. It's more on the natural matte/satin side while looking effortlessly flawless so it gets two thumbs up from me. The consistency is quite runny but not too thin so it does give moderate coverage, a very buildable foundation. It also lasts all day so remains loyal to its name. That being said, I went to my local counter to purchase this to find out my shade was out of stock, so resorted to online, found a fabulous deal of £21 for the colour 10 Beige Praline on eBay (I am aware of the different colour names in Europe than the states), the initial price is around £27, I just had to purchase. I tried it and noticed the VERY heavily fragrance it had, literally smelt like they had loaded the foundation with perfume, that's the greatest downfall of even purchasing it from eBay however I know this is authentic for sure, probably a factory reject of some sort, nonetheless, a foundation I thoroughly enjoy!
I used the older Teinte Idole 14 hour wear version and it was wonderful- it made my skin look perfect even without concealer and I am a person that has been through two full courses of Accutane! It did however, cause minor breakouts but nothing major. The bottle lasted me about three years of intermittent use. I just purchased the new 24 hour version a few days ago and I actually like it a lot although trying to get the color matched to what I used to wear was a task. I ended up choosing Buff 220 (c) where in the previous version I was a Buff 400. The color ended up matching pretty well. The makeup hasn't broken me out at all yet so I am hoping that it stays that way. I feel like this version isn't as "dry" as the other which I preferred ,but this definitely has a more natural look but covers well! For color reference, I used Bobbi brown foundation stick in Natural, Laura mercier tinted moisturizer in Nude and her secret camouflage in SC-2 and switch between true ivory and soft beige Rimmel Lasting Finish (which is a great cheap alternative that covers well but be warned,it does require powder as it has a dewy finish ). I will update if the teinte idole breaks me out....
24 hours my asssss. More like 2. This really annoyed me due to the fact that it wasn't cheap. Also I wish it would last long as I really like the dewy, fresh look it gives to my skin. I can wear it at school or out and it really compliments my discreet school makeup or a nighttime look. Even if I apply a setting powder, the humid climate of my country ensures (even in winter) that it slides down my face after an hour or two.
I can't find this in my country, I was matched in House of Fraser in the u.k to shade 45 which is a medium golden colour which is perfect.
I have been using Estee Lauder Doube wear stay in place foundation for more than 2 years and I am sick of it. I wanted something that is wearable. I mean not wearable like a mask but something lighter that makes my skin luminous and brighter, at the same time to cover my imperfections. This is exactly what this foundation does! I got it in beige and it is a perfect color match. It kind of hydrates my skin and leaves a fresh glow on it. On the other hand I can build it up and get a really good coverage which I do on the nights out. It is just appropriate for day and night and looks great on my skin.
Initially, I liked this make-up when I tried it on in store. After I took it home, and saw it on my skin in natural light, I noticed the color was a fair whack off, but the next color up was too dark and the lighter color was too light.
I've tried this with and without primer and it won't stay on, by the end of the day when I take off my make-up, there's nothing left of it. I should note that I am in Scotland, so I'm not in a hot humid climate.
I will not buy this again.
This foundation is incredible! When my acne was active I used Makeup Forever Mat + foundation because it did an excellent job covering blemishes. However my skin has cleared up and I am left with acne scars. I still wanted a full coverage foundation but something that had a lighter consistency and just did not feel quite as heavy on the face. This foundation is incredible! It somehow is fairly thin but covers my scarring amazingly well. I apply it with a Real Techniques expert face brush. I buff a little extra in where my scarring is more noticeable. I do not like the price, but since it does not break me out I will continue to repurchase it. It does not last a full 24 hours but it lasts me from 9 am through school and studying to 9 pm when I finish work with very minor touch ups. It keeps my skin looking fresh and matte, but not chalky.
The Lancome foundation matcher on the website allows you to select a top brand, foundation you used from them and shade and it matches you with the Lancome shade. It was exact for me from Clinique shades to Estee Lauder shades!
This foundation is great! It smells lovely, looks lovely and has great lasting power.
I apply it with a buffing brush for a fuller coverage and my fingers when I want a lighter coverage.
My only issue with this product is the shades, I bought 01 as my skin is quite fair. I assumed 01 would be the lightest shade but it is slightly too dark for my skin. When I purchase this product again (which I definitely will do!) I will probably buy it in 001.
If you buy this product i'd definitely recommend asking the Lancome consultant for advice on which shade to choose as there are loads!
This is the first time I've tried Lancome foundation...Wow I love this. I like a med/full coverage foundation, but some full coverage ones are just a bit too much coverage, and of course the med coverage just isn't enough. I've been using 2 different types to get the look I wanted. Not any more...I honestly wish everyone of you could try this, it goes on smoothly with fingers, beauty blender or foundation brush. If I need to add a touch more to areas, it blends in seamlessly. And every concealer I have used over this works wonderfully. I've used cinema secrets, erase paste, glamoflauge, Mary Kay and age rewind...all blend in perfectly with this foundation. And it lasts all day long...I'm not saying 8 hours, I mean ALL day long. If you can get a sample to try, please do, you may find your holy grail too.
