I really like this foundation, as it comes as a second skin on me and it doesn't oxidize! It makes my skin really nice and soft, coverage is pretty good - but I don't need much anyway. It's runny indeed, but I love how easy it is to put it on - brush, fingers. it tends to disappear towards the end of the day, more like melting into your skin, but I never noticed patches on my face, it's not to drying. i suggest you try it first, as I'm not sure how it would work on a different skin type.

not sure if i want to buy this again but its a possibility if i cant find anything better. i switch between this, chanel & nars matte. this foundation is veryyyyy runny (way too much always comes out) and can accentuate the dry patches on your face. but it does give great coverage and really keeps my face matte! so im torn about that. it gives more coverage than chanel and just a bit less than nars. it dries very fast so make sure you dont put your "dots" on your face ahead of time, by the time you get to them they will have dried up! work in small sections. i would say this foundation keep the oilies at bay better than chanel or nars but the nars has a better color match for my skin (NC42 summer/C4 winter).

EDIT: Still a very good foundation regarding coverage an longevity and if yu are not very pale you will most likely like this foundation however I am not a total convery to laura mercier silk creme foundation in soft ivory so I no longer have to put up with using the wrong shade and trying to justify it. Wont repurchase for shade reasons only.
Ive just finished my first tube of this and i will definitely repurchase. i am the lightest shade in 010 and i have to say its a really great match! its not perfect but its as close as ive found to my very pale Irish skintone. however becausei use a buket of sunblock everyday on my face and neck the slight white cast combined with this actually makes it perfect!!! there is no differnece in shade then. I dont find it oxidizes at all.
it has a very runny light texture because it is water rather than oil based in its formulation. it goes on so smoothly and finely, it leaves me looking airbrushed. It has a light to medium buildable coverage and i find because i dont live in a humid climate it really does last all day on me. it has also never broken me out and i think its becauseits not oil based.
its my favourite new foundation and i will repurchase this forever i think. its the perfect day time foundation. ADORE!

Just started my 2nd tube of Lancome Teint Idole Silky Mat & although I have repurchased it I don't particularly love it, I find can make me abit shiney on my t-zone and needs touching up with a little powder half way through the day. I don't like the packaging, I think foundations that come in tubes can get abit messy. The product itself goes on my skin quite nice with either fingers or a brush & gives me enough coverage but can get cakey if too much is applied.

not bad, not great, a little bit cakey, great coverage but still not natural enough in my opinion, it's a mediocre product :)

I'm a 16 years old school girl, struggling with skin that's oily and prone to acne. I've used sooo many different foundations (from 'high end' to drugstore) and nothing really suited my skin. But finally, dam da dam I think I'm done searching for the perfect foundation - IT'S THIS ONE!
no breakouts- i believe it's even improving my skin ^___^
good oil control - not as long as lancome claims, but I'm fine for 4 hours (which is pretty long for my skin ;D))
the consistency is quite runny, but makes it so easy to apply. i usually apply foundation with a stippling brush or regular foundation brush and spend a long time on blending etc.
this one i apply with my fingers and i need less than a minute :) it has low coverage, but covers redness and evens out the skin tone and looks really nice and natural. i don't want a fullcoverage foundation that covers up everything, since i don't really have that much pimples anymore.
this one is THE ONE! :3
the only thing i don't like is the tube, it makes it hard to control how much product you want to 'squeeze out' but okey i accept this little flaw.

I have been using Lancome Silky Matte (shade 05) for a long time now, it is silky matte as it says. I have very oily skin, an this keeps the oils and shine away, though a little bit of powder will keep the foundation matte for a much longer time. I like it because it literally melts into my skin and yet giving you coverage, the coverage is build able and it works fine with finger tips. I have used Revelon Color Stay(Early Tan-Normal/Combination Skin), Bourjois Healthy Mix (shade 57), MAC Studio Fix powder (NC 25 in winters). But so far this is the best one, since i was looking for a foundation that would melt and yet give a sheer to light coverage. Yes it is expensive (201 Lei for 30 ml) but it has a runny consistency so it will last a long time, and very little product is required...but again that depends on how much coverage you prefer. For those wanting to even out the skin tone without the feel of foundation on their skin...this product is the answer.

I have always been a loyal Lancome gal. I remember my mother using nothing but Lancome and having the same skin tone and type as her, I've never thought to branch out into other foundation brands. I use shade #4, which I'm pretty sure is Beige Nature. After a disappointing stint with the photogenique foundation, the lovely sales assistant steered me in this direction. I love the matte finish, although I do need a powder if I want to maintain such a finish. I also find the coverage is fairly easy to tailor to your needs. Being 20 and still in University, I usually only wear mascara and eyeliner everyday. However, a light hand and this foundation does a wonderful job of evening out skin tone. For special occasions, I use the MAC smaller stippling brush to apply (although finger tips give just as good a result) a little heavier and it lasts for hours until I go to remove it. I have very oily, sensitive skin, and this does not irritate it at all. My only complaint is that it is quite runny and it can be hard to dispense a small amount. Perhaps a pump bottle would be easier. Just for reference, I am NC42 and paid NZ$82 which I guess is pricey depending on personal opinions.

How do I rate this? I am not sure if this does promise to be more mattifying than Teint Idole Ultra, so i can't deduce points from it based on this. However previous reviews match my case (combination oily in summer) - this is not mattifyinfg! Less mattifying than Teint Idole Ultra and for misterious reason Idole Ultra in a darker shade (025) looks better on me (like I am tanned) than this in what seemed like a better shade (010) - yes it's lighter but it's definitely on the yellow side of light. If you are pink toned and fair this cannot match you. If you seek an oil control formula seek elsewhere. I bought this because it was on sale at Marionaud. And this is how it remains, the foundation I bought because it was on sale. It's okay, does not break me out, it's easy to blend but I will not repurchase this at full price. (yes on back of my hand looked better than on face). And the packaging is not amazing either. For its liquid state it definitely should have come in a bottle, with and even without pump. It's very liquidy.This will probably be amazing if you are yellow toned and normal skin type. I think silky may imply that it's actually more silkier and less matte than Idole Ultra which is matte. Neither of them lasts 16 or 18 hrs as they say on combination skin (heehee did anyone expect this ?)

This was my first stint with liquid foundation after using mineral makeup for many years. I eventually grew tired of the messy jars, the buffing, bad staying power and flaky skin. Also, I could never use it on my forehead = comedones galore!! This product made me believe in liquid foundation again! It is mineral based (which I don't hate), has SPF, does not break out my sensitive skin. But what I love the most is the easy application, I just take tiny bit on my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and blend with my fingers. Voila! No streaks, skin looks completely natural. It is not completely matte, there is some shine on my t-zone right after application which is easily fixed with a dust of powder. The staying power is far from 18 hours like the ad claims, but it makes my skin look good during working hours, and that's good enough for me. On the negative side the alcohol in it can be a bit drying on the sides of my nose, but I solve it by exfoliating and moisturizing. I use 01 Beige Albatre which is slightly more yellow, but just as dark as my previous 02 Lys Rose. My skin is around NC20, BB Sand, Chanel 02. I am also loving Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua - but I am still undecided about which one of these I like the best.

I like the light texture, and when it is first applied on my face, it feels comfortable, and breathable. I have color 3, which is ok, not perfect match (in betw NC25-30), but close.
But it has no staying power, after 2 hours, my face is oily and the MU is sliding off. I use the rest of it today to mix with other foundations to make them thinner or lighter. Combined with Estee Lauder Double Wear Light (I have #3), it works quite well actually. ELDW has the staying power, and the Lancome foundation gives it the lighter shade adjustment and thinner texture (less pastey feel). So I am pleased that at least it is not a complete waste since it was pretty expensive.

I don't like foundations of lancome. I had bought this and in the shop the colour looked good but when i got home and put it on my face it turns very orange, also i was oily within a few hours.
I love lancome mascara's but not the foundations, they do nothing for me....

Bought this as it was recommended by the SA at their Myer counter, I explained my biggest concerns: 1) It has to be light enough to match my skin tone (only one so far bas been Illamasqua), and 2) I have quite oily skin and really need one that's up to the job and can stay on for a day of work.
She swore it had great staying power, and that girls lighter than me use this (010). I tried a tester out and the colour seemed lovely, so I decided to give it a go.
Upon arriving home with it, it was like I bought a totally different product! It looks brown on the back of my hand, as opposed to the lovely pale cream it was from the tester, and it was like water!
I've worn it out since, to test the staying power, and within 2 hours I had a shine all over my face. Very disappointing for the price, Would not buy again.

Got this as a sample and was very excited so I bought a full size. But I don`t know what was in that sample because the foundation turned completely yellow on my skin after a few hours. After a few days of use it made me break out in tiny bumps all over my t zone. Total waste of money. Lost my faith in high end foundations again...

A SA tried this on me yesterday as part of a makeover. I had not had much luck with the teint Miracle - it went really slimy on me. She picked 010 as a colour match and it matched me seemlessy. There was good coverage and rather than Matte, I would say it was more of a Satiny finish. The SA did not use powder on me and it stayed on really well all day. My sink type is Dry Combination.

Hate this foundation! To be fair, my last one was By Terry which is not even in the same league, but this is nasty stuff. I have given it two tries; my first attempt (after being colour matched by the MUA) went orange after a few hours - (FYI no 3 ). Think Dani Minogue on Tango. So off I went back to the store and was colour matched by another MUA (note to self - never trust a MUA with obvious foundation and stinky cigarette fingers). I kind of knew it wasn't quite right but really wanted to give it a go. Well within two hours this one looks 'almost orange' (no 2) especially as I have my usual By Terry foundation on half my face and this stuff on the other half. The coverage is OK, although I feel caked on in comparision to my usual stuff, and no shine after 7 hours, but even my 7 year old son laughed at the colour of me. Seriously hoping Lancome will refund me as this is atrocious. Also, just being picky, but for the price I'd have liked a nicer tube. This one feels like you could have picked it off the shelf at Superdrug.

It's a good foundation for normal to dry skin. On my normal -combination skin it gets oily in few hours and seems to dissapear.... But it covers quite well the acnee scars and gives the skin a healthy glow that I really like. It looks great just after I apply it. After 2-3 hours it's very shiny.. Maybe it will work better in winter, when I need a moisturizing foundation.

This is a beautiful foundation, but its definetly not mattifying, especially nowhere near 18hrs which it claims to be! My nose is shining by 10am!
I have had many compliments on this though, that I look glowy, fresh, natural! Thats good enough for me. It does look super smooth. I will just have to blot a bit more. I apply it with a fluffy flat top powder brush by stila and just buff it into the skin, this has worked wonderfully.

I bought this because I wanted a lighter alternative to my Exuviance skin caring foundation for summer. I have oily, shiny skin and The Exuviance foundation is the best I've tried for keeping my skin matte, but it can look a bit heavy, so I was excited about Silky Mat's claim to keep skin matte for 18 hours(which of course is'nt possible, but one would think it would be able to last a few hours at least).
The texture is quite thin and the coverage is light, though it is buildable. I love the silky look on my skin - so it definitely delivers on that.
But - it is not mattifying at all. It disappears so quickly, I haven't timed it, but it seems like everytime I look in a mirror more of it has disappeared and I look and feel very shiny.
It sounds weird, but I think it would be great if your skin is'nt oily, because it does look great while it still lasts.
