Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear 24hr Foundation Review

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear 24hr Foundation Review

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear, AKA the foundation that took away NARS Sheer Glow’s holy grail status!  Yes, it’s been about 5 years since I declared that I had finally found “The one” in liquid foundation form. But for some reason NARS have been out of stock of so many shades in Sheer Glow, mine (Fiji) included. I held out hope that it would be back but to quote Eminem ‘Stan’ “It’s been Six months, and still no word.” So as you might have read here that I was lured into the Lancome life. And it’s good, I mean really really good!!

I can’t recall ever owning any makeup from Lancome, it’s a brand that I associate with more mature ladies and that puts me off, I wanna be young and hip ya know! And I realise that at 32 I’m probably classed as a mature lady (Ha!!) and saying things like “young and hip” do nothing to help my cause!!

Anyway, I’m on my third coffee now, and it’s obviously sending me on a tangent so I digress.

Here’s a breakdown of why Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear is my new *BAE (Hip?)



Starting with the most important factor. Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear 24hr Foundation is a medium coverage foundation that can be built up to achieve a full coverage. This is my personal favourite. It has the ability to do this while leaving skin looking natural and completely flawless, it’s a foundation that could make you forget to conceal on a good skin day. But there is no cake in sight.

I prefer to apply most foundation’s with my fingertips, always have. But I’ve tried this out with a few different tools, and it applies well with most brushes/ beauty blenders. Depending on your preferred coverage, I hazard a guess that Teint Idole will respond well to most application methods. Side note- it dries down pretty fast so quick blending is key.

24 hour wear?

Did I test this claim for the sake of this post? No. Who is wearing foundation for 24hours though? And why??? Bold claim b*llocks aside, this does have serious staying power!! My skin is normal/dry/dehydrated from 17000 coffee’s, and it stays put very comfortably from morning to evening without powder.

011 Beige Cristallin

Suitable for?

As mentioned above it suits my normal/dry skin and lasts well without caking. Those with oily/combination skin will get on great with the oil free formula.


The standard high-end foundation price of £31.50 for 30ml. And totally worth every penny!

  2. Interesting that you have pretty dry skin and I have very oily skin and we both love it 🙂 Amazing foundation that really does work on many skin types. I am always amazed that Lancome Teint Idole Ultra is so pigmented yet lightweight. A little bit goes a long way. After seeing your photos I want to revisit this foundation and upgrade my shade for summer, I used to use the lightest shade in the range haha
