LANCOME TEINT IDOLE ULTRA WEAR FOUNDATION REVIEW
You guys know I’m like the pickiest foundation shopper – ever! I think it all started because back in the day [early – mid-twenties] I had horribly oily skin and severe cystic acne and I legit could not make any foundation work for me. I will never forget seeing the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear foundation on YouTube right when YouTube got popular and I bought it right away. I swore by it because it actually stayed on despite my extreme oil production and it covered my scarring and acne issues [this foundation is oil-free]. Anyway, I’ve continued being a fan of the brand – their concealer was a holy grail for me for year, they have a gloss that I think is one of the best- ever, and a loose setting powder that gives the most beautiful glow! I also like their candles – I could go on and on but I am sure you are here for the foundation review. [But really, the other products I love by Lancome are their highlighters, mascara, face wash, perfume, & others!]
So I did accutane in 2014 to get rid of acne and when I did it went from crazy oily – to dry! It was a nice perk but I had to start all over in terms of the search for the best foundation. I still really liked this foundation because it was not too drying like a lot of foundations that help with oily skin. So it works beautifully with many skin types and leaves a really nice matte finish. You can set with their powder or even use their highlighter if you like a bit more glow. Its totally full coverage and buildable but one pump is plenty! It wears for 24HRs – not that I have tried it! But I can assure you it is very long wearing! It has SPF in it which is also a huge perk, too! Its a solid foundation that has been around for years and I know it is a holy grail for many. I just recently started using it with their LA BASE PRO Perfecting Makeup Primer and I really like that too. Its nothing thick or sticky but it helps it wear well. Also, I do want to note that if you need extra coverage in certain spots – you can build it up and it won’t be thick or cakey!

Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Flawless Foundation Customizable Set [This is a good deal if you want to try the Serum and the Primer! It is a full size foundation though, $47.00, regularly $80.00]
