LANCOME Teint Idole Ultra #03 Beige Diaphane Review and Swatch
October 5, 2011 4 Comments
This foundation was for a very long time on my “to try” list. The full-sized foundation comes in a 30ml pump bottle which retails for $42. It has SPF 15.
Teint Idole Ultra is a medium coverage foundation, but it is possible to layer it to get a heavier coverage. It evened out my skin-tone, covered the redness and imperfections and minimized the appearance of pores. It doesn’t emphasize flaky skin.
The texture is creamy, but it dries very quickly, so I suggest you to apply on a section of your face and blend it.
This foundation did nothing to mattify or control oil. If you have oily skin, be prepared to touch it up with a compact powder.
Teint Idole Ultra wears for over 6 hours (but keep in mind that I tested it during the extremely high temperature). In the normal weather and on the normal skin, I suppose it would wear up to 10 hours.
The shade #03 Beige Diaphane is a bit more pink/orange than the equivalent shade in Teint Miracle.
I’d recommend this foundation for normal skin which for some reasons require better coverage. Persons with oils skin will have to pair with a mattifying powder, while persons with dry skin may use it, but I’d suggest a very moisturizing cream underneath.
