I used to be barely nervous about the truth that the epic Lancome Teint Idole Extremely Put on basis had been reformulated. And I say epic with not even a touch of irony as a result of it was simply that: only a few excessive protection, extremely longwear foundations got here near it by way of the standard of end, ease of utility, shade vary and longevity. The unique Teint Idole coated each blemish and imperfection – no concealer wanted – nevertheless it one way or the other managed to not obliterate all the life out of your pores and skin on the identical time. It regarded versatile, comfy, barely juicy, but in addition gave that good, flawless, airbrushed kind of end that utterly removes redness, darkish circles, areas of pigmentation. And it had a delicate glow, an costly luminescence, but the end was velvety-matte.

And the texture! Oh the texture of the factor. It was cushiony, it didn’t settle into strains, it moved along with your pores and skin…if ever there was a full protection basis for grown-ups then this was it. And so: my nervousness over the reformulation. What would Lancome tweak? What side of the unique formulation would us diehard followers sob over? How may Lancome enhance upon perfection and a face base that had been round – efficiently – for many years?
Properly, let me inform you; they’ve. Lancome have taken their Teint Idole Extremely Put on basis and made it simply as complete in protection, simply as cushiony to use and simply as lengthy in wear-time, they usually’ve one way or the other added a load of skincare components into the combo alongside the way in which. And have you learnt what? You may truly really feel the distinction.
After every week of every day testing, with the previous formulation on one half of my face and the brand new formulation on the opposite (how I endure for my artwork) I can categorically inform you that the brand new facet of my face feels repeatedly hydrated all through the day. Extra plumptious. The opposite facet doesn’t really feel dry, as such, it simply feels…regular. There’s a particular distinction. I used to be sceptical past all well mannered cause in regards to the hydrating skincare factor of the relaunched formulation nevertheless it’s there. And it really works. My new face facet is juicier and extra springy to the contact however with the identical quantity of protection on the pores and skin.
I actually don’t suppose that many (if any) Teint Idole customers will likely be disillusioned with the brand new model. It’s the identical marvellous basis, plus a (very) barely extra hydrating really feel. I personally welcome the extra plumptiousness as a result of I nonetheless get the identical protection however now it feels much more comfy and versatile on the pores and skin.
This newly reformulated Lancome Teint Idole Extremely Put on is not to be confused with the brand new Teint Idole Extremely Put on Care & Glow. It’s extremely complicated and I want that Care & Glow was only a completely totally different product line, in a manner – it’s much less protection, extra dew – however you possibly can simply inform the 2 foundations aside by trying on the lids. White for the lighter protection Care & Glow* and black for the higher coverage Idole*.
Apparently, I desire the sensation of the excessive protection Idole on my pores and skin to the Care & Glow. However Care & Glow does give an exemplary stage of high-wattage luminosity – it’s the kind of glow stage the place I personally really feel I don’t want a highlighter. (Although as a disclaimer, I do really feel as if highlighter is among the most overused and misused merchandise in all the make-up world. Appears to be like nice for the gram however truthfully, in actual life, some folks look completely wild. Like robots. On the very least it simply appears to be like extremely unnatural, which is definitely the other of the specified impact.)
I ought to add, as a result of it’s fairly necessary, that I exploit little or no product after I’m making use of Teint Idole. It actually doesn’t have to be trowelled on and I believe it appears to be like finest when it’s utilized very evenly, from the centre of the face, and constructed up provided that wanted. One gentle coat is sufficient to knock again most blemishes, darkish circles and areas of redness – check out the earlier than and after pictures:
The one layer of basis, utilized very wispily with a small powder brush and never a flat-topped basis brush, even part-conceals the glasses marks on my nostril. These are all the time a nightmare to disguise, after I’m filming, as a result of they’re crimson and indented and only a common ache within the arse to take care of. No downside for the Teint Idole. And if I’d gone again over with one other little gentle coating then I’d have obliterated them utterly.
The pictures do a fairly good job of displaying the end too: it appears to be like fairly velvety-matt however there’s an actual luminescence that isn’t glittery or shiny however simply…costly trying. It’s the form of base that basically is a base, coming into its personal because the bronzer goes on, then the blusher… it’s the right beginning canvas, flawless and clean.

There’s a whopping vary of 45 shades and Lancome have additionally improved on the pigments to create tones which might be all the time flattering and enhancing on the pores and skin. No ashy undertones. I exploit shade 220C – I used to make use of 02 within the previous formulation which was ever so barely hotter in tone. I’ll do some experimenting subsequent time I’m close to to a counter!
