Having previously raved about this foundation in my House of Fraser event post, I thought I’d write a post dedicated to this fantastic foundation!
Having been an Estee Lauder Double Wear fanatic since I can remember, it was a shock to me to find a foundation that I actually prefer. Lancome has recently extended the shade range of the Teint Idole Foundation so I was able to get a match.
The Lancome Teint Idole Foundation retails at around £30 depending on the shop which I’d say is averagely priced for a high-end product. It contains an SPF of 15 which isn’t an issue for me as I wear an SPF under my foundation whenever I wear it anyway, this may be a problem if you’re into flash photography as it may cause some flashback, especially if used in combination with a talc based setting powder.
It has a light floral fragrance which I find nice and it isn’t chemically smelling – which is one of the very few downsides to the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. For the application, I use a flat-topped kabuki brush for buffing in and then using a beauty blender to bounce the rest of the product in (I usually spray this with setting spray for longevity).
The finish is a very natural but medium to full coverage buildable look which stays put all day. I’ve tested this out at work (as a veterinary nurse) and it stayed in place ALL DAY, through a trip to the gym, all the way to bedtime where it removed nicely with my Garnier Micellar Water.
To conclude I think this foundation is an excellent product and I can certainly see why it is being raved about by all the current beauty gurus!
