Lancome - Teint Idole Ultra 24h - Part 2

After ordering Lancome's new foundation on Sunday it arrived today via Parcel Force. I immediately went to try it out and I'm just as in love with the full size as I was with the sample!

It comes in the same silver box as featured a few posts back with their Hypnose mascara and the bottle is made of frosted glass. If I could change anything about the product it would be that, frosted glass does to me what nails down a blackboard to do most people. I'm coming up in goosebumps even thinking about it! The bottle contains 30ml of the product for £27.99.

It has a pump on top and I used about 3 pumps across my whole face. Below is a swatch of the product -

I applied with my fingers today, but I'm expecting an e.l.f. foundation brush to turn up tomorrow so I'll review that with this foundation this week.

My housemates have noticed a difference with this foundation and told me how nice it looks. I apply my Mac Prep + Prime translucent powder on top and then blend blusher/bronzer and a final coat of the powder to finish. 
I did take photos of my face with the finished product but since I look like a gremlin in all of them I thought I'd spare your eyes.

I'd also like to promote how good the Lancome Customer Service is. I received an email when placing my order and another email when my product was dispatched explaining that it was coming from their "Lancôme Logistical Centre at Ingré in France"and that Parcel Force would be the courier. Big props to Parcel Force as it arrived before 12 today and the delivery guy was very polite and had a lovely French accent, always a plus!

I am officially in love with Lancome, I'm going to have to stop myself going to my local Boots for more make up!

Have you tried this?? Let me know if you do!


  1. I haven't ever tried any Lancome! *slaps wrist!* I've heard nothing but good things. First on my list is the Hypnose Drama mascara xxxx

    1. I always thought it was an "older ladies" brand but I can't sing this foundation's praises enough :) x
