Social Media


There was once a time not long ago, I didn't own many foundations. If you've been following me on social media, you'll know how much I love love love this foundation. The team at House of Fraser kindly sent this to me for review purposes, all opinions are my own. I have the shade Sable, it is the perfect shade and I love that it comes in a sleek, glass bottle too (and with a pump)!

Lancome claim:

"LancĂ´me Teint Idole our best-selling liquid foundation is now available in 40 shades making it easier than ever to find your perfect shade match. This liquid foundation is long lasting and provides high coverage without feeling caked on, so your skin feels comfortable all day. With great staying power, this up to 24 hour foundation allows you to go out and look your best without needing to retouch on the go. Our smudge-proof foundation is also transfer free so you don`t need to worry about it marking your clothes".

I use two small pea size amounts which I dot around my face, spritz some primer water and then use my trusty beautyblender to blend it in. The foundation blends in so seamlessly and has a semi-matte finish with some radiance showing through. I do moisturise and prime well beforehand to prevent and it sits very well on my dry skin - doesn't cling onto to any dry patches. It lasts a good 8-9 hours without melting off but towards the end of the day, my skin does tend to look and feel slightly oily. I do spritz Pixi Glow Mist throughout the day to encourage its longevity. I have seen girls on Youtube with oily skin loving this foundation too so it's definitely one for all skin types.
I would say it is a medium to buildable coverage and I only apply a small amount to slightly even out my complexion. It's very lightweight and with the light layer, my skin still shows through. It's very much a 'your skin but better' kinda foundation and it doesn't have any flashbacks. 

Packaging: Glass bottle 30ml
Shade: 07 Sable
Finish: Semi-matte

A great everyday, lightweight base as well as a great occasional foundation too as it doesn't have any flashbacks. It doesn't feel cakey on the skin and lasts a good amount of time. It's available in a whooping 40 different shades so there's definitely one to match every complexion.
