I don't know about you but I love trying new foundations. It doesn't matter how many I have in my collection, it's my favourite makeup product to test out. As I have quite oily skin, I love trying out foundations that claim to combat this, and are also long lasting. Today I am going to be reviewing the new Teint Idole Wear Foundation from Lancome* which was kindly gifted to me by their PR team.
Along with the foundation, I was sent the brush that works in conjunction with it, as well as a luminous primer. I have been testing the foundation out for a few weeks now to really gather my thoughts and give an honest review. What I love about this foundation is that it's available in 40 shades, making it easier than ever to find your perfect shade. I am in the shade 050 Beige Ambre which has a nice olive undertone. For reference I am NC42 in MAC.
The foundation claims to provide:
- Long lasting full coverage without feeling cakey, leaving the skin feeling comfortable all day
- Great staying power, their 24 hour foundation allows you to go out and be your best without needing to retouch on the go.
- Teint Idole Ultra Wear is also transfer free and smudge free, giving you confidence to carry on with your day

The packaging comes in a standard 30ml luxurious translucent glass bottle, which I think looks really nice. I took it on holiday with me recently and had no problems with it breaking. It also comes with a pump which makes it easier to use without wasting any product.
After testing out this foundation, I can honestly say it is one of my current favourites! The finish is matte without looking dull or cakey on the skin, and the formula is really nice. There is no noticeable scent to it which I personally prefer. I have worn the foundation for 8 hours without having to touch up which is pretty impressive. I do think the type of primer you wear underneath also has an effect on the overall wear of the foundation too.
The only thing I noticed is I have to set it otherwise it is transferable, which isn't a big deal as I always set my foundation. #oilygirlproblems. The foundation currently retails for £31.50. Get tested in store to find your perfect match.
