Fans of Lancôme’s cult Teint Idole Ultra Wear will know just how special the foundation is. But they’ll also know that sometimes we want to go for that natural 'no make-up' make-up look. Hence their idea to launch a brand new version: Teint Idole Ultra Wear Nude. Focusing on women’s individual needs, they wanted to give current fans a lighter, dewier version that lasts, and boy have they delivered on their promise.
What Makes It So Special
Its versatility is a huge selling point. Not only are you able to easily build up the coverage, but its creamy, light texture means your skin feels hydrated throughout the day without any of the formula flaking off or turning powdery. Another bonus is the natural matte canvas it leaves behind, which was designed specifically for those wanting to trial the ‘no make-up' make-up finish. Expect skin to look considerably more even and less blotchy with just one layer. It’s softly scented too, but don’t worry, it’s not irritating, just a lovely bonus.
The shade numbers are the same as the iconic Teint Idole Ultra Wear, meaning you can pick the same shade you normally use for Nude. Plus dry down is fast, so instead of using your fingers, make sure you use Lancôme’s All Foundation Brush in circular buffing motions. This way you’ll be able to deposit the product seamlessly for a weightless, breathable base.
Who’s it best suited to?
Perfect for anyone who often steers clear of traditional foundations for fear of looking overdone, as well as those wanting a sheer, breathable finish. It’s available in 40 shades, so there’s something for everyone, spanning from light ivory to deeper tones.
What’s the cost?
It’s reasonably priced for the results – just £33.50 – especially thanks to its 24-hour wear that really does stay put. Even in a warm office, we didn’t notice this budge one bit.
