I am always up for trying a new foundation, especially when it's a cushion foundation — I'm a bit obsessed. I travel quite a bit, and I just love how portable cushion foundations are. My only gripe with cushion foundations is that there is just not a lot of product in the compact and I haven't found one that is super long-wearing. Until now. Lancôme's Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation is not only long-wearing, but it also offers a beautiful flawless finish with natural looking full coverage.
Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation's delivery system is different than most typical cushion compact foundations. This one is made with a tightly knit fiber network that is mesh-like. When you press on it, the perfect amount of product is dispensed through the touch-activated filter. The filter dispenses the perfect amount of product each and every time. Though there is only .45 oz of foundation in the compact, you only need a small amount to cover your face entirely.
I usually use a brush to apply foundation, but the enclosed customized puff applicator helps to deliver a smooth, high coverage finish. I then go in with this brush to buff around the edges of my face, under my eyes and nose. The result is simply beautiful; it is full coverage, but natural and flawless looking.
The formula itself it quite hydrating, but very lightweight on the skin. It has an SPF 50 built into which is essential for complete coverage. Lancôme's Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation is very long-wearing as it promises; I can put it on first thing in the morning, and my face still looks flawless when I go to remove it at the end of the day. I am very impressed.
Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation comes in 18 shades that are quite forgiving. I am using 220 Buff (C) now, and Caci has been using 330 Bisque (N) which would be my shade in the summer. See all of the shades here.
