Most Helpful Positive Review My Favorite Foundation...EVER!!!
For years I was searching for a foundation that actually matched me and I found this a little over a year ago and I fell IN LOVE with it! It's so pigmented and just lays beautifully on every skin color (I also work for Ulta so I shade match this A LOT). My recommendation for primers would be the Hangover primer by Too Faced because I will tell you one thing: if you have really dry skin like I do, this foundation MUST have a moisturizing primer. Like seriously moisturizing. No serums or primers with silicone. For starters, it doesn't stick well with silicones and honestly, most silicone primers aren't good because they give your makeup a perfect surface to slip off of. Because of this foundation's matte finish and drying effect, having a moisturizing primer, even if your skin tends to be on the combination to slightly oily side, it helps counteract the matte finish and gives you a full coverage matte look without a cakey feeling or the scaling dry skin effect. Also, this foundation will work as a more natural foundation with very little product. For full coverage, maybe three pumps. But I used to use four and that was too much and I ended up wasting product. For a light look, no more than one and a half. And even that can be too much because it really is meant to be full coverage. But if you are looking for something that can be somewhat of an in between, this will work for you. And lastly, set it with powder! If you want it to last, it will if you use a moisturizing primer (if your oily and have big pores, Benefit's Porefessional works wonders. It's not super moisturizing so it might do you good to combine the Hangover and Porefessional because again, YOU NEED A MOISTURIZING PRIMER) and a good setting powder. I personally like the Dermablend translucent loose setting powder, but for those with beautiful dark complexions, I recommend the Cover FX loose setting powder. But starting off well and ending well will make this foundation work like a dream on your skin!
Most Helpful Critical Review Still disappointed....why try to fix what wasn't broken?
After a few months of giving the Teint Idole Ultra 24H a chance, I'm still just as upset as the first time I tried it - this foundation is a disaster. I am a long time devoted wearer of the previous, perfect Teint Idole 14 Hour formula. The prior 14 hour formula was absolutely fantastic, I'd never experienced a more perfect foundation, the holy grail. It provided flawless, full coverage that somehow felt light yet covered my large pores. I was astounded when Lancome replaced it with this horrific 24Hour spackle that doesn't even resemble the prior formula. This 24 Hour foundation is heavy, sticky, sinks into pores and emphasizes them, and what's most startling is that it doesn't last as long as the 14 H formula! It is more difficult to blend even after trying different methods, it makes no difference, it's not even comparable to the prior formula. I tried several different shades to most closely match my beloved 14 H and found one that was fine. But this new 24H formula is so disappointing, my face just doesnt look the same. Ok, seems a little silly to be so frustrated about a foundation, but truly this new formula took away a foundation that was tried, true, and dependable. Now my search continues and I will have to look beyond Lancome. PLEASE bring back the previous formula that , from other reviews, apparently many, many other women dearly miss as well!

This is one of my fav foundations! The coverage is great and buildable and it wears very good. It does get a little shiny throughout the day but not bad and nothing a little setting powder can't fix! It lasts a good amount of the day and I haven't had any problems with it. I have combo skin for reference.
Nicole from RI
Feels and looks like your skin, super light weight with a flawless finish. Only issue is it does get oily after a few hours and that's with using a finishing powder but nothing some blotting papers can't fix.
No longer a fan
Rsh96 from New Jersey
This foundation used to be flawless in every way. Now it settles and fine lines and cause terrible breakouts. I get angry pimples in my oily areas.
Waste of money from Virginia
Would not recommend buying this product
Honestly? Very disappointed
Kelsi from Cincinnati
I have taken almost every foundation from covergirl to Armani for a ride. Seen the good, the bad, and the cakey. This formula honestly is very comparable to Burt's Bees foundation, but worse and with less coverage. Medium coverage that wears down quickly regardless of setting spray. You could probably use aqua net and it would still transfer. The neutral tones oxidize in similar fashion to the nightmarish maybelline dream mouse of yesteryear. Somehow, this foundation decided it didn't want to simply stop at those things. The formula also turns any eyeliner, no matter how high end, to a raccoon eyes fiasco that would make an emo boy band turn and run the other way. No thank you Lancôme. No thank you.
I wouldn't buy this products again
Yoko from Fl
I am very disappointed. I went to the store to buy some makeups with someone how knows more than me but at the end I spent a lot of money in the whole set and I don't like. Don't mach my skin color,it transfers and doesn't cover like it should.
Jenna from New Jersey
Love this foundation. I used the match tool and it matches my skin perfectly. Goes on smooth and stays all day.
Kat from Rosenberg Tx
I got sweaty and when I got back into my car I looked at the makeup to see how it did through the sweaty walk. I am sad to say that it in-between my eyes and the makeup was in droplets about to go down my nose like tears. Not cool AND DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE PRICE!!
I would not buy this again and regret buying it in the place
Lancome bad makeup from Decatur Al
It does not cover very well, and after about 30 min, looks shiny and worthless. And cost way too much.
I would buy this product again. The coverage is great.
Luna from Gilroy
I use this product for going out to family reunions or any event and it feels super good. Even though is full coverage, it doesn't feel or look heavy at all.
Not 100% sold
Jay from Rochester NY
I was very disappointed in the color & the final look once applied.
Yikes. Pick something else.
Nick from Jersey City, NJ
Oh, man! How disappointing is this product? It's incredibly drying. The foundation is so thick it looks like cake batter on the skin. It then cracks after just 30 mins of wear. I have never encountered a foundation at this price point that is THIS bad. Truly so surprised and would encourage anyone to find literally anything else before subjecting your face to it!
Not for me
Carly from Stl
Broke me out like crazy, and every sample I tried would end up looking later. I really wanted to love this product but was extremely disappointed. I also don't think this is matte at all, I was so shiny every time I would try it
Lasts 3-4 hours before melting
Megan from Texas from El Paso
Ok, I *wanted* to love this foundation! I've read so many wonderful reviews on the Lancome 24 Hour Longwear Foundation that I wanted to love it and I felt so elegant making this purchase. Alas, I was disappointed.
I drank the Lancome Kool-Aid and used the Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Day Cream SPF 15 Anti-Aging Moisturizer, with the La Base Pro Perfecting Make-Up Primer, this foundation, the Lancome Long Time No Shine setting powder, and topped it with the Lancome Fix It Forget It setting spray and yours truly was shining brightly after 3 hours. Thinking that maybe my skin needed time to adjust to these changes, I tried the routine a second day, a third day, and a fourth day, yet alas, I was shining and my makeup was visibly melting.
It's worth noting that I'm not *that* oily. Sure, I expect my T zone to shine through a little biy at the end of the work day, but after 3 hours of just normal desk work in a typical office environment? That seemed a bit, well, disappointing. Save yourself some money and use a different line.
Bec28 from Philadelphia
I purchased this foundation a few years ago and always come back to it. I have combination/oily, sensitive acne-prone skin, and this foundation covers my breakouts flawlessly without irritating my skin. It applies well with a brush or damp sponge and lasts all day for me with a primer. My only caveat with this foundation is that it settles into my frown lines. Overall, I'd highly recommend this product!!
Hard to find shade
Leweav from Tulsa, ok
I love the coverage, however it is very hard to find the shade needed due to type of bottle trying to color match thru the glass color. With covid, stores don't let you get samples or dab onto skin anymore.
Best color match!
Raaaaach from St. Louis, MO
I love this foundation! Like others have said, it minimizes pores and fine lines, is lightweight, all day wear, and feels great on your skin! I tried a sample of this and bought a full size and lemme tell you it's worth the price! :)
SLAP RESISTANT !! NOTHING GOT ON HER HAND!!!
Mochashay123 from Dmv
My sister slapped me and I had on a full face of makeup and nothing got on her hand. She was mad at me but I was like let me see your hand and she had nothing on it. Recommend!!!
I would buy this again.
Jessaka from Monroe, La
I love that it was a perfect match to my completion.
Mature skin, love this
Amy from AZ
I received this as a gift for a purchase I made and tried it out. I have mature sensitive skin and I love this product. It is light weight, feels like I am not wearing makeup, does not settle into my wrinkles, and give my face a nice even coverage without making me look made up. I love that I look natural and feel natural. I just purchased some today, and am tossing all my other products that do not work for my skin. So glad they sent me this product to try! This was exactly what I was looking for in a foundation. At first I thought it was a pigmented lotion, that was how nice it felt on my mature skin.
I will buy this product again
Kelly from Kokomo
I love this product.
Amanda from New York
So I'll start off by saying I have never been a fan of spending a lot on one product of makeup - BUT this foundation I found to be worth it. I've tried multiple different brands but always had issues with either it being too oily/greasy feeling, causing me to break out, barely any coverage, having a funny smell etc etc But this foundation I found feels so nice on my skin, it's not sticky or oily, it doesn't have a strange smell, and it stays on for the majority of my day. It's pricey, but it's a quality product. I definitely will be purchasing this again when I run out! Just want to note that I have combination skin, depending on the time of year (dry in the winter , oily in the summer).
Yes I would soooooo buy again.
Nancy from Porter ranch, Ca
I love it but I need to go back and change to the correct color.
Found my new Foundation
Katie from Texas
I've have tired just about every foundation out there, from cheaper drugstore brands to expensive brands. This foundation blends evenly and easily build able with smooth finish. Stayed put with the tinted setting powder I use. Also in the Texas heat it still looked nice at the end of the day.
Best foundation ever!
DW from Midwest US
I've used Lancôme foundations for as long as I can remember. They're the only ones that seem to match my fair and cool skin tone. This one is no exception, it lasts all day, never oxidizes, and blends in like a dream. Even though I always apply spf beforehand, the extra spf this provides is always a bonus. I'll repurchase over and over again!
