I’ve been told I have great skin (okay, maybe just once or twice). The truth is, just like my brows, I fake it – and it’s all thanks to Lancôme’s Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation.

I’m all for a full coverage finish – goodbye redness, post-pubescent zits (but seriously, will they ever stop?!) and blemishes. Buttt I often find full coverage foundations leave my combination skin cakey and flaky. This is where Lancôme’s Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation works wonder for my skin – it provides a medium to full coverage finish that’s easy to build. For a more “natural”, day-to-day finish, I apply it with a blending sponge, but I can easily make it full coverage with a buffing brush. Combine that with the fact that it’s truly long-wearing (I’m talkin’ 10+ hour work days), and it’s not hard to see why I love this foundation.

Insofar as formula goes, Lancôme’s Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation provides a velvety-matte finish that leaves my skin matte but never flat. Though I’ve heard (and read) that this foundation can and does oxidize, I haven’t noticed any such issue. I will say, however, that the shade range is serious business – it took me a bit of time to pick my proper shade and, in fact, I ended up purchasing a shade that was slightly too light, but thanks to Sephora’s generous exchange policy, it wasn’t much of an issue.

Did I mention it has SPF 15? Well, it does. And, no, it doesn’t cause white cast.

Amen.
