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!

I have tried almost every brand of foundation and this is the best I've ever found for my skin. I have combination skin, oily tzone and flaky cheeks. It blends so smooth with a Beauty blender and looks so natural. I bought a bottle of this and a few weeks later I bought another one just to have on hand for when I run out, which says a lot considering I never repeat foundations! I'm so glad I finally tried this.
Painted Lady from Eugene, Oregon
I use this whenever I wear full makeup, either on it's own or I mix it with Glowstarter by Glamglow. I always seem to come back to Lancome for skin products and mascara, they are the bomb. I really like natural-looking foundation and this is by far my favorite, super light weight but still FULL coverage. Worth the 40+ dollars.
Gabi from Sanford
I love this one! It's great, it's buildable. Amazing foundation!
Sooooo pretty !
Mo from Charlotte
So I'm a 26 year old black woman. I was nervous about this because I thought it was for old white ladies, but boy was I wrong!!! This is my favorite foundation. I get compliments EVERY TIME I wear this. It's really THE BEST .
I will be buying this product again
Jackie from Wisconsin
The foundation I had been using for years was suddenly not looking very good on my skin. I am in my mid 50's and my skin has changed. The foundation I was using looked cakey and uneven. An employee asked what my concerns were and what I was looking for. She recommended a few different brands and based on her knowledge and opinions I decided to try the Lancome that she recommended. It is a perfect match for what I was looking for. I wish I could remember her name so I could thank her. I love the foundation!
Feels amazing on your skin
Luxandlashes from Puyallup, WA
Best foundation I've ever tried. Full coverage, but feels so light and natural on your skin. The color range awesome! Especially if you have yellow undertones. Worth the money!
Sticking with the tried and true
Sherry from Los Angeles
I needed to buy a new bottle of foundation and the one I had before is no longer available. With this crazy pandemic I can't try on anything. So I decided to go with the foundation from the family that I had used before the last one - Lancome. I am glad I did. Looks so natural!
Great natural coverage
Suzy from Philadelphia
Been using this product since it was introduced. The coverage and tone matching are both excellent for a white woman in her 60s. I avoid sun and like the spf 15 (wish it were higher) protection. The price has increased almost $10 since I last purchased so I have been tempted to switch to another brand but really this product works for me.
Joy from Chicago
Love this foundation. It is a medium coverage that leaves your skin feeling smooth and flawless. I have been using it for a year now and I love how it makes my skin look.
Like but don't love
Marina from Virginia
I liked this product. My mom recommended it because she loves it. It did separate on my forehead where I have texture and broke apart easily where I have mild forehead "wrinkles" (23 years old). I don't love it for all day wear but I would wear this foundation at night. I think in the daytime it's just too much for me. I prefer my it cosmetics cc cream for daytime.
It's not the old urban decay but it works
SharkQueen from Sparks, Nv.
I use it as my foundation. It works great I'm shade 130 the match is good. Not too heavy but covers well.
Took some practice
Mart from USA
The first few times I used this it looked super cakey. I was practicing with it and I figured out that 1 pump to cover my entire face leaves a very nice natural looking coverage. It doesn't really cake and the damage by wearing N95 masks off and on throughout the day isnt toooo noticeable (i wont knock a star off for that because i have yet to find a foundation that lasts throughout an N95 sesh like this one). It just sits really nice on the skin and I think I'd buy it again even though it is pretty expensive.
My new favorite
Flshopgal from Florida
I definitely use this product for more coverage. It is lightweight but offers good coverage. You can apply light or heavy. Love that it has spf.
I'm so impressed
Angelina from Florida
I feel that it applies best with a wet sponge. This product is so lightweight, and it still delivers very impressive coverage. You don't even need to use concealer with it unless you want brightening. It also has SPF 15, and I have dry skin as well and my face never feels dried out or heavy with this foundation on. I highly recommend it to anyone who has hyperpigmentation or uneven skintones because this foundation covers it all. It was very easy to find a color match in the store even though the packaging is foggy.
Not very good
Jackie from Franklin Ma
Horrible scent returning!!
Wears just like your own skin
Zee from Las Vegas
Originally came in to exchange my too faced 24hr foundation for a different shade and was recommended this one as a similar that was just as good. I was shade matched for 370/380 Bisque W and because it does oxidize I ended up going with 370. Turned out it was a little too light for my preference (I have medium/tan skin with warm undertones). When I went to exchange the shade I chose 410 Bisque W instead and it ended up being a good match. The foundation itself is pretty good my only complaint is that the formula is really thin so you'd definitely have to add an extra layer or two to achieve the "full coverage" look. This one didn't live up to my expectations in terms of covering my imperfections/scars but I love how it wears (lightweight and long lasting). If you want the natural skin/good for everyday look then this is your match. I'm thinking of mixing it with my Maybelline superstay foundation next time for maximum coverage.
All Time Favorite
Danielle S from Las Vegas,NV
This has been my favorite foundation for years, the most recent bottle I got didn't dry down on my face as well as it used to so I don't know if there was a slight formula change, but it's still an incredible foundation that can light, medium or full coverage depending on how you apply it
Not full coverage
Ldhock from Austin, TX
I bought this several months ago and wish I had returned it promptly. I pull it out every once on a while to try it again, as I did this morning. I will concede I'm not sure my color match was the best, hard to do when you can't try the product. But, my real disappointment is the coverage. I have some hyperpigmentation and this just doesn't provide the coverage I need. I did get a free concealer when I bought this, and that I love. I've also recently bought the peach concealer which I use as a corrector. That with Clinique's Beyond Perfecting Foundation and the Lancôme concealer give me a look I am happy with.
Great product so far. Used a week.
Mommy of 2 from Colorado
I am really enjoying this product I just wish it covered a little bit more so I didn't have to apply more after it dries. But it does look like I'm not wearing any makeup at all. It goes on very smooth.
Sandra from Summerville
I love this foundation. Just wish it covered a bit more.
Doesn't live up to the hype
Mia from Philly
Definitely not full coverage and i need it put a concealer underneath bc you can't put concealer on type well. oxidizes like crazy and looks oily and grainy.
Mar from Nevada
Its super expensive but I wanted to get something that sat nicely on the face. It took me a few tries to make it not look cakey because I kept accidentally using too much. Usually 1 pump is good for the entire face and I've been getting the best results with a beauty blender. It lasts about 12-ish hours and it doesn't transfer onto masks too much, I've been wearing surgical and n95 masks and when I take them off I'm still wearing makeup. I'd buy this again depending on how long the bottle lasts me.

Smokey from Georgia
Love this product. Brand I previously used left my skin so dry and caked. With this extra skin enhancer, I look smooth and hydrated. My face looks fresh and younger. Recommend highly.
I would buy again!
Joey1981 from Ohio
I have pretty oily and acne prone skin so I am I always looking for a foundation that will assist with both issues! In addition, I have some scaring from the acne on my cheeks! This foundation covered those problem areas well and the finish looked beautiful if I do say so myself and seemed to stay in place even with my oily skin! I did use a setting powered with it! I would for sure purchase again!

Have to put moisturizer on before.
