It’s taken me so long to review this foundation as I’ve been waiting for my skin to get dark enough to match with this shade. But I somehow missed it during the summer so now it’s too dark for me again, whoops! I’ve never tried Lancome foundations before but have heard great things! The Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation is a full coverage foundation with SPF 15 protection!
Packaging: Lancome packaging is usually pretty classic and the Teint Idole Ultra Foundation is no exception. The glass jar feels hefty and has a pretty frosted look to justify the luxury price tag. The cap closes down sturdy which is great for travel and has the Lancome logo on top. I always love foundations with a pump as it keeps the product inside clean. However, the packaging is a bit boring in my mind but may appeal to a more classic demographic.
Side note: My packaging is the older Lancome Teint Idole 24H which is now renamed to Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear. But the formula and product is the same!
Shade: I selected 320 Bisque W as the description was medium skin with warm/yellow undertones. It definitely is very warm and although I can see the yellow undertone, I feel like the warmth overpowers it and ends up looking a bit pink. For the new re-release in 2017, Lancome came out with new shades so there is now a total of 40 shades to suit all skin tones!
How much of a coverage do you usually use for a daily basis? Any tips for color matching?
