Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear 24H Foundation: Review and Swatches
Originally released in 1997, the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation ($55 CAD) is getting a revamp for its 20th anniversary. With a new bottle and new shades, this long-wearing foundation promises a velvet-matte finish and a streak-free wear! To read my review of the new formulation and see some swatches, click.......

Formulation:
An oil-free, liquid foundation with an SPF of 15, the Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation provides a medium coverage. The foundation is super smoothing yet lightweight. I rarely wear foundation because I don't like how it feels on the skin but this one is super comfortable and breathable. The finish is indeed matte but it's not at all drying or flaky My T-zone stayed relatively non-greasy at the end of the day but I did notice some fading, especially around my blemishes and nose area.

Overall, this is probably one of my favorite foundations in the recent years. The formulation applies like a dream and it has a comfortable and shine-free wear. I would have liked a higher SPF but 15 is better than nothing. "110 Ivoire C" is a cool-tone light ivory (comparable to NW20) while "210 Buff N" is a very light sandy beige (NC15-20).
